Good for you!!!! And for your DD!!!!

 

I am very glad that my children are doing well in school ( the school age ones, that is )and for making great friends at school

 I am proud of Dh, that he works so hard for our family.

I am proud that I made it through my first semester of pharmacy school! And I am proud of DH for continuing to pursue his math degree, even though I was completely absent during said first semester. I actually now have confidence that our little family is going to make it through the next 3.5 years and am looking forward to life after this is all over :)

I am most proud of my difficult but rewarding birth of my third child and that I exercised almost every day through the whole thing and only took a week off after.  I am proud of the Mom I am to three amazing kids I have become!  I was afraid of the transition but it's been great!

I am proud of myself because:

 

1) I have been working really hard at my job, above and beyond what I'm paid for

2) I've worked really hard at cultivating & improving my friendships (I've hosted more gatherings of friends than I can count! trying not to care that my friends rarely invite me *sigh*)

3) I've worked really hard at keeping the lines of communication open between myself and my kids, between myself & my DH

4) I've chosen to pursue things that make me TRULY happy

Ann, What is making you truly happy?

I'm proud that I stuck it out and got the job I wanted.  I'm proud of how hard DD1 has worked to get along better in school, I'm proud of how hard DD2 has worked to become a very good little reader.  I'm proud of DH, for stepping up in the times I really needed him.

Awesome. I use to have hobbies.  That was 5 years ago ;)  I do dream of getting back to them at some point. Go get um!

1) I had my second baby naturally.

Rock Star!  I am starting the C25K as soon as we get the tax refund and get a treadmill.  

post #16 of 45

I did C25K after my first was born a little over 3 years ago. If you said I'd be marathon training now I'd have been ROFL!

My (private) goal is to do a half in 12-18 months.  I am totally not even sure if that's realistic but it's what I want to try for.

post #18 of 45

I lost 80 lbs, and started training for a 5k (my goal is to run the entire thing).

 

I sought (and am getting) professional team help for my eating disorder, which I hope will mean that I will not pass it on to my children.
