today i am a proud dad!
my 3 year old son has been given the starring role as joseph in his schools nativity play,
makes me feel all happy inside! funny little man.
what are your stories of being a proud parent?
My 3.5 year old daughter dropped a loud fart at a family function and blamed me for it a while back, made me feel proud :)
My 10 year old daughter won the MVP for her entire basketball division for the second time recently - about 150 girls compete. No idea where she gets it from...I have never played basketball in my life!
My 8 year old son also won won a writing competition...cool!
BUT, the thing that makes me most proud is they say "I love you dad" every night before they go to bed.
Me, hopefully maybe in 5-7 years from now.
my 5 months son, always wake up with a smile :)
i also love it when i put my boy to bed and he says the same things, "goodnight dad, love you mate, see you in the morining"
makes me smile...
... and proud moms
Yeah, they are the gift that keep on giving!
My little girl once told me "Chill out, dude...it's rad"
she was 3.5 at the time...
My little girl is a skate rat... I am so proud!
one thing I fuckn envy them for,
is that they can eat while sleeping,
I wish I could drink beer while asleep, wake up drunk, instant win
My kids and I love the Princess Bride and they routinely say 'Good night. Sleep well. I'll most likely kiss you in the morning', before they close their eyes.
my 13 months old son pointed to something outside the window and said 'oooooh'. when i looked in that direction he grabbed my smartphone.
watched all 6 star wars movies with my oldest son this last weekend - first time he's seen them (4.5yrs). now he won't stop talking about them - even takes the dvd's to bed with him. he's still pretty confused on how anakin could turn into darth vader...
my 12 year old son is playing in the City League Football (Tackle) Championship this Saturday ! He sacked the QB and had a tackle for loss yards during the Semi Final !
My youngest son (14 months) is going through an intense Daddy phase. While it's annoying that I can't do anything without holding him (brewing coffee one-handed is not easy), it melts my heart when he runs to me through a crowd of people with a big grin on his face, saying "heeeeey." :)
One Saturday this summer, we went blackberry as a family. My oldest son (3) loves blackberries, just like his old man. He of course had to have his own bucket. He was walking around with his bucket, shoving blackberries into his mouth as quickly as possible. Never had more than a few blackberries in his bucket. When I told him they needed to go in his bucket and not his belly, he said "No no, wit's [sic] ok, Daddy. Dey're good." As if that explained everything...
My 9 year old daughter yesterday announced that I had 'devils head' syndrome, and proceeded to continue the conversation by using only the words 'devils head', but maintaining all other aspects of normal speech - intonation, body language, etc. Almost immediately she contracted 'What's Fled?', and we continued for 20 minutes getting dinner ready using only the words 'devilshead' and 'What's Fled?'.
Any advise for a father to be? (practical or otherwise)
Uncharted territory ahead.
- Nope. The best part is learning it all, every kid is unique, getting to know who they are is the thing. Doing stuff for them is 2ry.mikotondria3
- dont worry... thats my best advice, just go with the flow!cruddlebub
- dont let his mum eat cauliflowers - it makes small babies cry :'(
- Don't stress! Stresshead parents have stresshead kids.Amicus
- cheers lads
I'm as laid back as they come, but this is pretty heavy, even for me.faxion
my son is totally and utterly a daddy's boy, i cant do anything without him being my shadow, cries when i go to work, the lot.
it was at a stage where i couldn't even go to bed at night without him getting up and getting in bed with us everynight... was a nightmare, but he's gotten over that now. kids are brilliant!
