    Our son is six years old and when he was four years old I taught him his “meeting manners.” Walk up to someone, look them in the face, shake their hand (squeeze firmly) and say, “Hi my name is Porter, nice to meet you.” People are just so blown away by that.

      Our 30 year old daughter has been married over six years to the same guy she dated in highschool. She has worked in the same medical field since highschool. She is a very, very good mother (their 5yr old started kindergarten today).

      Our 26 year old daughter is in a season of life where she is making some pretty poor relationship choices. On the other hand she too has worked in the same area of the medical field since highschool.

      Our 21 year old daughter has worked two jobs AND gone to college full time since she got out of highschool. She is finishing up her degree in radiology.

      Our 8 year old daughter is such a resiliant little girl. We are so blessed to have been able to adopt her.

      The SINGLE THING that makes me MOST PROUD of our adult daughters is that in spite of my shortcomings and (at times) very bad parenting skills they turned out to be some very remarkable young ladies. I am so proud of each one of them… I just wish our 26 year old would get rid of that guy she is with now.
      Seriously.

    He’s very polite and respectful to others… usually. He mostly remembers to say “please” and “thank you”, and when he refuses something, it’s “no, thank you.” He’ll also just out of the blue, do nice things for folks. Not so much for me, since I’m mean ol’ mommy, of course, but for lots of other people.

    My boys are both very polite also but seeing them being tender either with their kids or talking to an animal makes me feel warm inside. Jason talks to his lab like she’s his child and Toby walks in and all the animals run to him. I think that says a lot.

  4. Jason says:

    I like when Hunter will lay down and watch tv with me, also when he is out on his little tractor helping us pick up the grass clippings.

  5. Jenny says:

    Like Jason said, Hunter helps out with everything! He helps me do the laundry, he likes to feed the animals. You ask him to do something, he usually does it. Hunter says please (most of the time) if he wants something. Hunter is 2 1/2 so when he says certain things or does something it’s like oh that’s so cute! He’s growing so fast. He likes to put on his Spongebob backpack and walk outside and says he wants to go on the bus to school. He makes me very happy- most of the time!! 😀

    Let’s see. I usually don’t feel like I can take much credit for how my kids are. So much of it is hardwired and in spite of me, LOL. I love Miss E’s creativity, inquisitiveness, and empathy, but that’s just how she was born. Same thing with Miss A’s athleticism, sense of order, and sense of humor.

    Maybe I could say I’m proud of the way my kids try to work things out with civil words instead of more primitive methods. They are both pretty good negotiators and they care enough about each other to look for a win-win. I think I foster this by keeping out of their disagreements and drama as much as possible. I will make observations sometimes, but not get into the emotions.

    I have two children who are so different from each other, like night and day. I don’t know that I even have words to describe my daughter. She is like an angel to me. She is always there for me and for everyone else in her circle of family and friends. There is nothing she wouldn’t do to help someone. I am so proud of the woman she has become. My son is a recovering heroin addict. He has been doing drugs for 15 years and he has been clean for 4 months. In this time I have seen him go from a selfish boy to a man. I haven’t seen him since the beginning of May and I saw a photo of him today and for the first time I saw a man that I am proud to call my son.

      It’s so good to have you back to blogging Joan. You know I love and adore you. It was so great to see Damon fishing. He looks terrific. Fingers and toes crossed so it stays going so well.

    I would have to say when my girls volunteer on their on at our church it makes me feel proud.

    When they think of others. My daughter loves to make things for other people! The best was when she said she wanted an allowance to earn money to buy her brother a present for his birthday! Excuse me? That can’t be our girl!!! They are both appreciative and (most of the time!) have great manners. Everyone slips up once in awhile after all.

    He’s very thoughtful. Always aware of others feelings. I had my niece here for a while, and she was calling my mom grandma. He didn’t like it much, and I asked him if he wanted me to talk to her about it. He said, no way, that would hurt her feelings. He’s always aware how his actions and words will affect others. He’s always been like that.

    I also appreciate that he is my “chick flick” partner. He will watch anything, if it means spending time with me. He’s just a lovable, kind hearted kid in general. 🙂

    My daughter was extremely brilliant in studies throughout her studying days. Always first in her class. She seemed to do everything with ridiculous ease.
    I was just the opposite .
