This is a thread to brag with no shame about your children.

My 12 year old brought this home from art club today. He titled it "Castaway".Attachment 15229

Today my son made the sign for "book." He is almost 16 months old and knows lots of signs, but that was the first time he did "book." His sign for "cat" is really adorable.

I saw the pic you posted of yourself and your children in the fashion thread. You are all adorable!! What a beautiful family. Your son and daughters eyes are incredible! So blue. Very creative, artistic son you have there
That's so cool that he is in an "art club". I wish I had something like that when I was younger.

That's awesome!! Very impressive. He sounds very intelligent. It would take me forever to learn how to sign. What does his sign for cat look like?? Sounds cute

I love it when little ones sign. So darn cute! I'll have to post the one that he did a couple of years ago. It was amazing.

And Sis had this on display at the dentist's office.
She was so excited to go that day!

Our middle school art teacher is top notch. I love that he donates his time to this kids twice a week after school to really encourage them to try new things.

my boy and his girlfriend have decided to give veganism a go. I'm a bit stunned but buzzing with pride right now


Hopefully this will last longer than some of his other fads

My son decided to do what he called a "vegetarian experiment" for a weekend over a year ago. No sign of going back.

that's encouraging to know.


there's no way he's going back actually because i've already told him he's grounded for about five years if he even thinks about it!

LOL! I keep thinking that mine will change his mind, but he really has a sense of pride about it now. I like that we are now an evenly divided household.

my daughter: accepted into vet school. we're talking Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 4 years
. i'm giving her a present of $25,000 for school. she's worth every penny of it. graduated college at 20, starting vet school at 22. has been a star student all her life, even in kindergarten. when i had her i was too young to be a father, but she's turned out fantastically well.

I have no kids; I've only just stopped being a "kid" myself (I guess as old as papayamon's daughter), but I wanted to pop in and say that I really like this thread.

Fantastic! My daighter (who is 10) has her life mapped out and plans to go to vet school. She's the kind of kid who will do it, too. Where is your daughter going?

there's only 26 schools in the country. if i say where she's going, i might identify her online, unintentionally, due to her young age and the fact that the classes aren't that large.

it is extremely hard to get into vet school. the competitition is brutal. my daughter has spent the last 2 years since she finished undergrad traveling the country doing internships with birds, widlife, marine mammals. if you go to undergrad, carry 12 hours a semester, graduate with a 4.0 and work in a dog/cat vet practice, you have zero chance of getting accepted. it's just that competitive. you've got to carry a big load, have top grades, kill the GRE, and get all kinds of experience.

she's worked around the clock for this. she would have been devestated if she hadn't got accepted. i was really worried about her. she wants to be the top vet at a national zoo.
