We all have great kids and sometimes we just need to brag. Please brag about your kids.

Sounds like it runs in the family then! Should be interesting to see how it develops. That's really cool that his teacher can use it to motivate him.

Kellie, Malachi is extremely verbal and reasonably athletic, but he's pretty average when it comes to music.

Wow, that is fantastic! I can't wait for DD to start reading fluently. She would watch tv 24/7 if we let her. I can't wait for her to discover that books provide that same type of entertainment.

That's great to hear about your little guy Gwen! Does Malachi have the same affinity for music? Do you think Aaron will be musically gifted?

Wow, that's awesome!! Like the other posters, it's hard enough to lift my foot over the other skate, let alone spin around on the ice! Congrats to both

Okay, let's see what I can brag about...

Macy is turning 8 this weekend and her teacher is so proud of her. As you probably know, English is not her first language, but she is still on target to pass 2nd grade. Not that she'd "fail" since she has an IEP, but she's doing pretty well on her own merits.

Fletcher just started on meds for ADHD which has helped him tremendously! He is repeating Kindy this year, yet he hasn't improved at all in his reading. His teacher said she's been banging her head against the wall trying to figure out how to help him but, now that he's started the meds, he went from a level 4 reading to a level 7 in just two weeks. She's planning to really push him for the rest of the year now that he can concentrate. His behavior is SO much better at school.

Felix is my preschooler and he has just started reading the Bob books!! He is also adopted and is having a lot of emotional issues lately which can be so emotionally draining for us all, so it's like a little rainbow in our day when we get to see how bright he is. (Not that he's the first preschooler to read, but that's new to us...he's going to pass up our bio son in reading pretty soon. LOL)
