View Full Version : Parent's Brag Thread

I thought I'd make and sticky a mom's brag thread for this section. As moms, we all like to brag about our little darlings. Everything they do is so exciting from their first tooth to their first date. When they take those first steps we want to tell the whole world what they did. We rejoice in all their struggles-- the little ones and the big ones. When they triumph in even the most insignificant of things, we find the significance to share with others.

But, often we find those without kids growing weary of our constant gushing of good news. All those "that's great," and "congrats" are replaced by "took them long enough," and "about time."

So, this is your thread, moms! This is the place to share every little piece of good news about your kids (both young and old). Share anything from them tinkling in the potty for the first time to them passing their college entrance exams. This is your place to brag. (Daddies, feel free to brag too! We welcome all your feelings of adoration for your children as well. :) )

If people don't want to hear our kids accomplishments, then they can stay out of our thread! Pessimists and people who have nothing nice to say need not post here.

:fmom:

Just some cautionary words to parents...... don't give out more information than is necessary about your children. Refrain from sharing things such as names, locations, schools, etc. Always remember that Skadi is open to visitors. Also, use discretion when posting pics of your children. Visitors cannot see these, but any member who registers can. If at any time you want pics removed, feel free to ask a moderator and we will remove them for you. Our children are valuable to us and we wouldn't want to do anything that might out them in harm's way. :)

Here's my brag:

My daughter learned to walk at 10 months old. Maybe not exceptional but my son was more than a year before he was walking. The picture is of my two blue eyed babies last Halloween. She's a flower, He's a Crusader!:)
My girl will be 1 year old at the end of this month. My wife is planning a big party. Thanks for making this thread, I may be a man, but I adore my children!

Our youngest loves to read and write. She is very proud of her Southern/Confederate heritage from her father's side and her German heritage from her mother's side. I thought I share part of an essay she wrote about two years ago, age 12, about her homeland Georgia:



Georgia, My Home!
From the "Peach Girl"!


I would like to share my thoughts about my home and country - Georgia. One of the reasons I love Georgia is because her people are very friendly and show great hospitality. And when someone needs help somebody is always there to help.

Georgia has hills and valleys, islands and swamps. The area where I live is mainly farmland. Depending on what time of year one can see fields of corn, fields of hay, snow-white fields of cotton. The snow-white fields of cotton are my favourite, they are so beautiful.

Let's not forget the Southern foods. Grits is my very favorite. I could eat it for breakfast, dinner and supper.

God, my parents and my brothers are most important in my life. As long as I remember I have been going with my family to have Church. And then comes Georgia and the Georgia flag that represents my home. She is not only beautiful, she also bears the Christian Symbol of the St. Andrews Cross. And even though I am 1/2 Georgian from my daddy's side and 1/2 German from my mama's side, my ancestors fought under this flag for Georgia back in the War of Northern Aggression.

The Georgia flag is displayed on a wall in my room and she will NEVER come down.

Mathydd, they are adorable! :) You must be so proud. So, your daughter is turning 1, and how old is your son now?



Georgia, your daughter writes very well. The way she described Georgia made me feel as though I was right there looking out across the cotton fields. I love when the cotton fields are "snow white" as she described them and then the sun sets on them streaking them red and orange. Tell your daughter what fond memories of cotton fields her essay gave me. :) I can tell from her essay what the pride in her heritage that you have instilled in her. That is great! I hope I can bring my children up with that much pride in who they are and where they come from.

Thank y'all for the wonderful posts. We must never forget, that the children are the future. The family unit is the "Keimzelle" of every Volk/Nation. History demonstrates what happens to nations without this strong unit, which includes children. It is very important that we instill values in our children that are lasting, such as the love for Family, Homeland and Volk/Nation. In my case of course it will also be the love for our Lord, Jesus, the Christ.

My purpose in joining this forum is not to push my Christianity on anyone, but the sharing of information. However, my worldview, which is Christian, will show my Christian principles and views.

Yes, the cotton fields are beautiful. We are part-time farmers, among other things, here in South Georgia.

Greetings - Georgia

Thank you and yes I am! My son will be 3 in May. My wife and I decided to teach them different words for poopy and potty, so now we use "stuhlgang" and "machen wasser". For a particularly bad changing we say "über stuhlgang!". It is hilarious to hear my boy say that.:D

Great essay by your daughter Georgia! Your obviously doing a splendid job raising her.:thumbup

Okay, I'll brag. :) My daughter got 5 medals at the state gymnastics meet this season. She had the top place in bars. She even recieved a bronze medal on the beam despite having a fall. She had her final meet for her level this month and she recieved the top score on beam in her age&level. :bravo

I've posted pics before, but here she is in handstand:

Now she is moving up to the next level. Her competition season for this level begins in the fall.

She is 5 now, and looks forward to go to school next year. Like me, she does not like clowns, but we love to build little boats, and to climb threes. I am so grateful and proud, my hearth could explode anytime... :silly I guess you know the feeling...

I know exactly how you feel.:D

Those who criticize the pride we have in our heritage and the concern we have for the preservation of our race and culture often claim we are motivated by hate. The truth is we are motivated by an overwhelming love for our own.

Our little 2 1/2 month old rolled over (tummy to back) for the first time today. In fact, he did it 3 times! :) Yes, this is normal development for this age. It's just so fun to watch it for the first time. :bravo

I believe that many parents instinctively feel admiration and pride for their children. This is not only because they see themselves in their offspring, but also the culmination of their union with their spouse and ultimately the result of their ancestry. Indeed, to have children is to look upon the face of your ancestors.

I just love what you wrote.

With school out, the report card is in.

Our youngest, The Georgia Peach Girl, works hard all year long. Between soccer, piano lessons and recitals, helping around the farm and around the house and school, she stays very busy.
She has always been very responsible about her studies. For a teenager she is very disciplined. I know:) .........but I think all mothers know what I am talking about and why. Certainly don't want to leave the fathers out:) .

At any rate, to make a potential long story short, she has a 95.9 grade average for the whole year:thumbup . On character grades such as courtesy, exhibits self-control, shows respect for authority, promotes school spirit she got a big E for Excellent.
Perhaps some other moms and/or dads want to continue to share about their children. Our children are the future!

My son just turned 10, and he is a math wiz. He started walking at 10 months and had a full set of teeth by 11 months. He also is fluent in German and Gaelic. They are such sponges when young! :thumbup

Hope this thread applys to Dads too? As I dont live with my daughter anymore and her Mum isnt on these forums, ill have to speak on her behalf.
Well my daughter is 11 on the 28th of this month. I cant really brag about any specific achievments that are particulary outstanding. But she is a pleasure to be around, is thoughtful and considerate, she trys hard at school and is doing well, she is a valued member of her class, she is a sensative ,gentle soul and im extremly proud of her. Her presence brightens up the day of all she comes across, and I thank the Gods and Goddesses for bestowing upon me the privilege that is Amy-Leigh, the joy in my life.

My nine month old took his first step by himself today. :D:D He was so happy he clasped his hands together and fell on his bottom. He thinks that the sign for milk is the sign for anything really yummy. So he will sign milk if he really likes whatever food he is eating.

I was blessed to give birth to the two most beautiful boys on the earth. (That's not opinion that's fact!) Preservation of our German heritage is very important to me, how can I pass this on in such a "politically correct society?" In our society Preservationist/Racist mean the same things to people. It's even harder as I live in a state where barely anyone speaks English anymore!

Finally figured it out! My pretty babies!

I want to brag about my little 2 year old daughter Heidi. She is my pride and joy and she knows it, she has me wrapped around her little finger. She is also very smart, she has been counting to ten all on her own for months now and she can sing the ABC's song with only a couple of mistakes (the "l,m,n,o" is pretty tough for her). She loves cars, construction equipment (which she calls "mighty machines"), and trains. She also likes girly things like horses and dolls too. I call her "Heidi-bear" and she calls me "Daddy-bear", which is very adorable. As a two year old she is constantly on the go and she wears me out playing with her sometimes, but I love spending time with her nonetheless. I thank the Gods every day to have blessed me with her.

My little Henry is just fantastic! He is almost 2 and a half and has just brought so much joy to my husband and myself. He loves singing, and talks all day. He can count well, and looks at piles of things for a couple of seconds before pronouncing how many "8 pencils, Mummy!". He has the blue-est eyes of anyone we've ever met, although my mum's are pretty close. So far he's blonde, but it might turn reddish like mine in time. I'm glad he's stolen my colouring so I can't be mocked for being the palest person in town alone anymore!

My adorable little boy:) He warms his mommy's heart all the time. For privacy purposes....I'm leaving out pics of anyone else. But he sure is a cutiepatootie!! Neither his dad or I are quite sure where the heck his curly hair came from.....it might actually be from the Swedish side of his dad's family....

My son is going to be 23 in 2 days.
He does not smoke/drink/drugs at all.
He is a man of his word and utterly loyal.
He does not swear, is very religious and is very conservative in his ways.
He used to be an extremely good athlete – Victor le Dorum 3 years in a row (sprinter, long/high jump + javelin) in a fairly good sized school.
He is a computer expert and in demand by big companies.
I’m grateful for the fact that he got his brains and most of his up-bringing from his mom.:thumbup
He loves me.:D
