I am not a mum yet and few years ago I was 100% convinced that I didn't wanna have any children and I said that to each boyfriend I had. Now when I hot little more older I can imagine myself as a Mum and I would really like to become one, although not very soon, in 2 or 3 years. So all Mums and Dads here can you tell me some of the moments when you were most proud with your childern? Is it only their success (not only material one)that makes you proud of them or is it something else? Strangly my mother never showed to me that she was proud of me when I got good grades or graduated from high school, not even when I started university and was getting really good marks. I know she was proud of me because she was talking about it to her friends. What was important to her was and still is that I do good and help people. She never missed to tell me that she was proud of me when I helped someone.

I'm proud of my children because most of the time they are happy children, they do make me cross as well. We are not a very brainy family but all my children enjoy going to school and if you are happy at school then you are going to learn something good to take into the world. I feel proud when they do well at school, swimming, football. I love my children sdo much I'm just proud that they are mine and that they love me so much as there is so much bad in the world. They are kind thoughful children and would help anyone. I feel proud to have been blessed with four children.

There are so many things my kids do to make me proud that it's hard to narrow it down to a couple, but my faves are that they are so polite and well behaved. We constantly get compliments when we are out at restaurants etc. And the other would be how well they both do in school....to many others to list here without filling up pages and pages....LOL
