Okay, enough time has passed that we can now look back at 2011 and list the things that we are most proud of. Go ahead and brag away! lurk.gif You can even include your DC's accomplishments!

Me?

I'm also proud that DD is playing her piano so beautifully. love.gif

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

You are all so awesome!  Inspirational too

 

*bejewled*, boards in what if I may ask?

 

Ann, What is making you truly happy?


Imakcerka 04:42 PM 01-14-2012

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.

Writing, creating things...

 

Also things that are not socially acceptable ;)

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!

I am proud of my son for figuring out what he wants and taking concrete steps to get there

 

I am proud of myself for travelling more.  

 

I am proud of my youngest DD commitment to her passions.

I am most proud that in 2011...

 

1) I had my second baby naturally. 

2) I ran my first half marathon.

3) My DH landed a job in his dream career goal and we uprooted for him.

4) My kids have adjusted to being siblings and adore each other.

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


anjsmama's Avatar anjsmama 06:05 PM 01-14-2012

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.


Tigerchild's Avatar Tigerchild 06:15 PM 01-14-2012

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.

Tiger, congrats on your amazing weight loss. Something to be very proud of.

Good job Tigerchild!

Wow!

 

-I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl

-we moved to our dream house on a farm

-we finished all the renos on our old house

-I lost 40lbs & worked out throughout my whole pregnancy

-I got rid of my prediabetes


kitchensqueen's Avatar kitchensqueen 09:53 AM 01-15-2012

I gave birth to my son! I always used to think it was over the top when people said having kids is one of the best things you can do, but now I see it. And they were right! 

 

I'm also proud of myself for figuring out what I want to do with my life career-wise (after years of complacency and indecision). Now 2012 is the year to put that in motion. 

 

And I'm proud of my husband for working hard to provide for our family, despite all the struggles he's had in doing so. He has never let us down.

Thanks - it's scary 'cause part of me keeps waiting for this too good to be true time to come to an awful end...


Tigerchild's Avatar Tigerchild 05:34 PM 01-15-2012

Thanks all.  I'm hoping that at the beginning of 2013 I can say that in 2012 I was proud of maintaining my weight loss.  I hear (and totally believe) that it's maintenance that is the difficult part.  Maybe I'll like running enough to have done a half marathon.  Right now I'm still chanting the "I hate running" as I train for the 5k.  Totally dig the C25k program though.
