Brag about your kids here.

I hate braggers, but it's ok to brag about your kids.

At least it is when they're as fabulous as my two.

Not only are they both incredibly clever and top of their respective classes (another outrageously successful parent's evening on Tuesday), but they're also both incredibly gorgeous, well mannered and thoroughly adorable too.

I wouldn't care if they were thick as two short planks mind, I'm so proud of them both and so lucky to have them.

Tell me what is wonderful about your kids/stepkids/grandkids etc...........(you get the picture).

re: Brag about your kids here.

I think this thread should be pulled immediately. It has all the aspects of a discriminatory thread. What about those of us that don't have, and can't have kids - how are we meant to brag eh? eh?

Actually, joking aside, you must be pleased as punch MsCurly I know I would be if I was in your position.

re: Brag about your kids here.

My eldest (20), 'Bobster Marley' is a white Rastafarian, who dislikes me and rarely speaks with me (unless he wants something) failed all his exams and dropped out of college, the middle one (17) is struggling with college and has just discovered the demon drink but in his defence is a character and a good craic. The youngest (14) who I have great expectations of is on the verge of being expelled from school. Beat that then Curls!

bandito Posted on 7/7 10:22
re: Brag about your kids here.

my son is the dogs bollox and I've already told him NOT to say to the lads at nursery, school, etc that my dad is bigger than your dad cos it wont necessarily be true.

People used to say "ooooh, it'll change your life" and to be honest you used to just nod your head in agreement without really thinking too much about it but they were dead right.

Never been happier.

re: Brag about your kids here.

longster, you can brag about your nieces/nephews if you have any, and if they are worth bragging about.

Fletch......you haven't really got a 20 year old, have you?

You look waaaaaaaay too young. *flutters eyelashes*

Bandy......that's lovely. I don't really have anything in my life that means anything to me, I'm really not interested in money/possessions. The only thing that makes me truly happy are my babies.

Mind you, it is closed season at the mo.

re: Brag about your kids here.

I came down this morning, to find that Ellie (my 5yo) had drawn me a picture of a footballer scoring a goal. He wore a red and white shirt and carried a german flag as he scored.

Underneath the picture was the following message,"Huuuuuuuth, Robert scors for Boro"

She's like a sponge that lass, and knows exactly how to make Daddy smile.

Harley (my 3yo), meanwhile was upstairs in my wardrobe showering my suits and shirts with Johnson's talcum powder!

re: Brag about your kids here.

My son is going to be a scientist of some sort. Not sure which field yet, but he's definitely got an aptitude for science.

When he was three his nursery teacher told me that he had spent the morning putting different toys in the waterbath in the wet area to see how it affected the level of the water. He would also lay out all the pencils across the table to see how many it took to reach the other side.

Such a geek, my boy.

re: Brag about your kids here.

My son has his life mapped out. He's going to be a professional footballer until he's thirty. Then he's going to publish the most successful comic known to mankind - a superhero better than Spiderman, Superman and Batman put together. With the proceedings from all the merchandising he's going to buy a hotel and let me live in the penthouse. He's also going to buy a Mini and take me and his little sister (but not big sis or Dad) to Redcar whenever we want. All his own plan.

Eldest daughter doesn't know what she wants to be. But at least she's grown out of her first choice when was three. If anybody asked what she wanted to be when she grew up she always answered "A farmer's wife". Which was most distressing from her her feminist mother's point of view.

As for the babe, who knows?

my eldest daughter 6 read at a 9 yr old level and scored so high in her last sat's she had to be graded as a 8 yr old so they could give her a mark.

I can only think there are some odd ball genes in the family somewhere.

As a point of order if I ever see male off the board within 100 yards of her, I'm going to shoot them, twice, then reverse over them in a bus.

re: Brag about your kids here.

But seriously folks it’s strange the way life pans out, my eldest (20) was an exceptionally intelligent toddler at 2 and an half he could recognise about 40 different cars in car parks just by him asking what each model one was in his toy box. He has a phenomenal memory. Through Primary school he was always graded a couple of years above his age group they told me he was gifted, at 14 he was in the top 5% of the whole area after his SATS, done well in his GCSE’s. Went to college got in with the wrong crowd, changed colleges got in with a worse crowd failed everything went to re-sit but dropped out totally half way through the second year. In an absolute dead end job now, I just hope he will grow out of this phase and turn his life around. Things did happen in his life that was out of mine and his control, but I cannot help feeling a little disappointed how things have turned out. Good luck to everybody with kids out there, because they are hard work (but worth it) and you can do everything right by them but I still think you still need that little luck as well. That’s life I suppose.

re: Brag about your kids here.

I have 2 boys.

My oldest, who is 3 at the end of this month is as bright as a button - he can count to twelve, knows all of his colours and loves (and can name) most animals. He speaks really well and has got the hang of "please, "thank you" and "excuse me" and "come on Boro" (of course). He has blonde hair, blue eyes and a smile to die for.

My youngest who is 8 months old is totally chilled out. He has slept through the night since he was 10 months old. He has got his bottom 2 middle teeth through and has learned to pull a face that is both cute and funny. He plays the "where is he today game" and can move around (only backwards and by rolling). He looks like his brother but with less hair and still has that cabbage patch kid look about him.

In short I love them both with all my heart and am proud to bursting point of them.

re: Brag about your kids here.

j_orourke, we got the phone call 'Iv'e packed in Uni' and that was it really. Like your son he has a job with no aims, but is perfectly happy. Fortunately he has never caused us a seconds bother, in the end its their lives.

Boromart Posted on 7/7 12:38
re: Brag about your kids here.

MsCurly, Surely you are far too young to have 2 children. Would it be a little too cheeky to enquire if they have your hair?

My two are utterly gorgeous. Its my little girls 3rd birthday next saturday, I can't beleive she is 3 already. I always overhear the other parents commenting on how beautiful she is, especially her deep dark eyes, they make me melt. I just can't stay angry at her for more than about 2 seconds, she is just too cute. She counts to 20, knows her alphabet, and can recognise all the letters, she knows all the colours in spanish, can count to 15 in spanish. She can hit a tennis ball with a racquet 50% of the time, but her driving is rubbish, she knocked over my garden lights with her jeep last week.

My little boy is 6 months and my mini-me. All the other mothers love him and can't keep there hands off him.

He wakes up every single morning smiling away to himself. He is the happiest baby in the world - FACT. He is really strong (he keeps yanking my chest hairs and it bloody kills) and tall already, he will be a centreback.

Soz MsC but I have the best three kids in the world, they've been in a single parent family since the youngest was 2 (and is now 32), we live in a "deprived" area and they went to one of the worst rated schools in the country, my oldest is now a social worker, second is a software engineer (having gone to uni and got his degree) and my daughter is a jewellery shop manager. I'm dead proud of all of them. The oldest got through to the final of Countdown as well!! Actually all Mums have the best kids in the world really don't they.

Then it was bed time he wanted to put his pj's on himself, he put them on back side first, i put him to bed, i went up to check on him and hes playing on his playstation, i took it off him, went back to check on him, he was watching madagascar, eventually he went to sleep at 10:45, kids you have to love them

re: Brag about your kids here.

This thread really is nauseating. Boromarts thread in particular just made me want to wretch.

There is nothing worse than listening to parents wax lyrical about their sprogs, particulary babies. They are always beautiful, or very advanced for their age, or clever, or funny......yaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwn.

Why do parents lose their objectivity and intelligence when talking about their babies. They are just babies, there are millions of them all around the world just the same as yours.

Well you think wrong. I do have kids and just to pi55 on Boro in Nortons parade my baby could identify most animals when she was 15 months. Big deal, it's what babies do. I just have a bit more wit about me than to indulge in this saccharin nonsense that some parents do.

I was subjected it to it the other week by a mate who was telling me "what a good looking lad" his 10 month son was. He really isn't, he's one of the ugliest babies I've ever seen. And of course "he has never known a baby so advanced". Really? Even more advanced than your last baby which was "so advanced its unbelievable"

re: Brag about your kids here.

Three children, oldest is a male and he's a 26 year old Quantity Surveyor and a wonderful lad. Middle is a 22 year old female, who is married to a lovely bloke, and they have a son together. They are doing really well, just purchased their second home, and coming out to see me soon .. I hope !! Youngest is a 16 year old lassie, very calm and intelligent young lady. Loves her parents and hasn't caused us many problems so far. She went out and got herself a job, passed her driving test, and seems to have grown up leaps and bounds in the last four months.

All three of them are the light of my life, I just wish we all lived a lot closer. Then again, my middle one is trying to get permission to live in the USA with her family, and I'm helping them with this, so who knows, we all might be neighbours shortly !!

Boromart Posted on 7/7 13:43
re: Brag about your kids here.

NeilTrodden, I second that.

It is natural human behaviour to show pride in your kids and compare development. It comes from being social animals.

Those parents that don't do this are not more intelligent or objective, they are just lacking basic social skills.

"They are just babies, there are millions of them all around the world just the same as yours."....I guess that statement shows what you are missing. Mine is an individual, there is no baby 'just like mine', I assume you would happily trade yours for another since they are just the same?

Hardly 'banging on about them', two paragraphs on a thread called 'Brag about your kids'.

If you don't like people 'banging on' about their kids because they are 'the same as millions of others', then what the hell are you doing on this thread? do you think you are going to get people to stop discussing their kids? It would be arrogant to think you could. Are you on here to lord your superior intelligance and objectivity? Or is NeilTrodden spot on?

WARNING TO SWINE (get your sick bag ready)

My kids ARE the most important people in the world, at least in my view of the world.

re: Brag about your kids here.

My son to me is the most important person in the world. That's not the same as him thinking he is the most important person in the world.

And as for being a baby bore, I have only mentioned him on this thread as it's about our kids. As for boring people at parties, my experience is that most people who think they are witty, have a "gsoh" and are so much cleverer than everyone else are usually the opposite.

re: Brag about your kids here.

Ok Boromart then. I don't want anyone would see me as a parent with a lack of basic social skills. Therefor I'll also join this thread.
Briefly:

$kid[1]== male, 14
$kid[2]== male, 10
$kid[3]== female, 1

$attributes=array(charming, beautiful, smart, clever, well mannered);
for ($x=1 to 3) {
for ($y=1 to 5){
$kid[$x]==$attributes[$y];
};
};

What I'd like to say is that I also have the greatest, lovely children on the Earth.

"Jan, a friend of mine recently asked me what being a father meant to me. After much thought my answer was "Accepting that I am no longer the most important person in my universe".

And anyone in earshot will have turned to each other, grimaced and said "OMG, have you heard that daft twot...bleugh"

I never said my baby isn't the the most important thing to me. Of course she is. I am just well balanced enough not to start thinking she is more beautiful, clever or nicer natured than all other kids. And even if in momemts of weakness I did think that I certainly wouldn't embarrass myself by telling other people about it.

Would I swap her? Maybe if a chubby chinese one became available because i think they are really funny.

Well put MIRO, but you really need to indent properly (winky thing).

Just to clarify Blot. I should have said "Those parents that hate this behaviour are not more intelligent or objective, they are just lacking basic social skills.".

Big_Swine you should try showing your emotions once in a while, its quite liberating.

re: Brag about your kids here.

chutters, bandy and jonny_giles.........omg.........they are GORGEOUS!

rozi....sounds like you've done an outstanding job, I hope they're proud of their Mum.

I don't care what anybody thinks, I've had such a wonderful time reading some of the 'saccharin' in this thread. Love is a wonderful thing, there isn't enough of it in the world.

Boromart......my son has dead straight hair and my little girl has curly hair, but not tight like mine (thankfully for her). Sometimes I do it curly for her, and sometimes I do it straight for her, whatever she wants.

Big_Swine Posted on 7/7 14:35
re: Brag about your kids here.

What basic social skills would they be?

Surely it is the people who gush about their offspring to disinterested others who are the ones lacking in social skills.

If showing my emotions means talking like you did in your post of 12.38 I think that I, and I'm sure many others too would prefer I kept them bottled in.

re: Brag about your kids here.

Having been on both sides of the fence like many others I can appreciate both viewpoints. I'm so proud of my son and appreciate others are of theirs and their daughters so I'm always quite conscious of going on about him when with others who arent parents. You can see them mentally switch off. I still have this bugbear about people taking their babies into work cos it's a load of old tosh. More often than not the poor kid gets palmed off to blokes who have no desire to hold a baby, infact some of them look visibly terrified.

Planner, little miss pipkins is like me in so many ways that it's just not even funny.

She's six and I had to tell her to stop being such an outrageous flirt last week with a 10 year old.

She's allowed a boyfriend when she's 27.

janplanner it's not MsCurly who has to be scared but me! If MsCurly's daughter has really look of her mum then I can imagine my wife would feel a bit threatened when we'll meet on the airport!

And don't forget I'm also only man...

re: Brag about your kids here.

it's easy to be interested in people you care about's children, but in general, it is rather tedious. but maybe that's just me. sorry.

re: Brag about your kids here.

Boromart and MsCurls - your children look so beautiful, make the most of these years because they really are gone before you know it. Sorry for seeming sexist but my kids Dad, even tho they still make a point of going to see him, hasn't had much to do with my three, he has two lads from his second marriage and unfortunately they have been much more important. So I was speaking as a single Mum - really I know that Dads are usually just as proud as we are. Wow, I think I was your 100th as well Curls

re: Brag about your kids here.

I was only joking Rozi. I had the same experience with my Dad, he left and moved on and he can't really be bothered with us. That isn't something I can understand but some parents, (particularly fathers) do that.

All your kids look great but according too certain sources unfortunately some will be smack addicts and some will invariably bat for the wrong side so please brace yourself for the impending dissapointment.

If they bat for the other side, then so be it, if they become smack addicts I will kill their dealers.

re: Brag about your kids here.

My eldest is one of the nicest kids I've met. Bloody ace keeper, started in the B team, got dropped - had chance to swap clubs - refused "wanted to fight for place" got back into the squad, played out of his skin and got promoted to A's then promptly won 4 player of the months in succession. (High hopes for club awards night but trying to kepp his feet on the ground(hard balance at 9 between cockiness and self confidence). Consistently excellent reports from school.

Middle one not so good at footie (or school for that matter). But nearly lost him at 5 month with Meningitis and is now nearly as big as his big brother. Can be a complete sod, but caught sight of him in the school playground last autumn shielding a smaller kid from a much bigger bully. Just stood completely in front of the little 'un face to chest with the bigger kid and refused to back down. Tear in my over that one.

Youngest is a little sweetheart but sharp as a needle with it. (two big brothers brings em on).

Proud to fook of all of them.

re: Brag about your kids here.

My youngest is at uni studying English Literature and will do well and have a successful career in whatever she chooses to do I'm sure and I'm rightfully proud of that.

My eldest is the one I'm most proud of at the moment. He is 25 and is a learning disabled adult and this year he has completed (and received) the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.


OverTheTopAussie Posted on 7/7 16:44
re: Brag about your kids here.

Eldest is 19 and in 2nd year uni doing an Arts degree. No idea what she wants to do. Sweetest, most caring person you are likely to meet.

Middle is 16 and in Year 11. Loves his Kitchen Operations course and drumming. His dream would be to be the next Jamie Oliver, only better. Growing into a sensitive young man.

Youngest is 14 and in Year 9. Has wanted to be a vet for as long as I can remember. Loves her ballet and is very good (I'm only slightly biased). Always giving away or sharing anything she has.

I'm so proud of them all. Not because of what they can do, although that's nice, but because of who they are becoming.

They are a wonderful gift from God to my wife and I (sorry if that doesn't fit your theology). It took us 5 years of trying, a load of tests, fertility drugs and a miscarriage before the first one came along, followed by another miscarriage before the middle child.

re: Brag about your kids here.

This is a great thread and regardless of what some have said, I've enjoyed reading it all. And if you can't brag about them on a thread entitled "Brag about your kids here" where can you. I've got 2 beautiful boys, the eldest is 9 and a cracking keeper who's had trials for the Boro acadamy. He's also just brought home an excellent school report. He also turned into a stroppy teenager at the age of 6 (I'm hoping he'll of grown out of it by the time he actually reaches 13 ). The youngest is 14 months and into everything, he's a really happy kid and was walking at 9 months, he's totally fearless and into everything and is currently trying to systematically destroy my house! But I wouldn't change them for the world.

You should never have to brag about your own kids. If they are as good as you think they are, other people will blow their trumpet!

Don't see any bragging on here at all, just some very proud mums and dads talking about their kids. Very handsome sons Mr Kaza, they look like butter wouldn't melt!!

I want about 3 more but surely they all can't be that well behaved?

newholgate Posted on 7/7 21:18
re: Brag about your kids here.

Then maybe they should have posted on a thread with the title "Be proud of your kids here" rozi. There is a difference between pride and bragging.

If people have posted stuff about their kids on a thread about "bragging" then their intention is to brag, not to show pride in their kids.

DrBuck Posted on 7/7 21:26
re: Brag about your kids here.

All six of my children are so good looking that I am now convinced that i must actually be or have been a quite hadsome chap. It surely can't all be on their mothers side can it?

What's wrong with boasting about one's children anyway? When it all boils down to it they are probably the acheivement(s) in our lives.

And that can't be a bad thing can it?

newholgate Posted on 7/7 21:36
re: Brag about your kids here.

Bragging about yourself/your achievements is even worse than bragging about your kids DrBuck. Same rule applies. If you are as good as you think you are, you don't need to blow your own trumpet because others will already be able to see it for themselves.

DrBuck Posted on 7/7 21:42

My kids are great and infuriating. They drive me mad with their tantrums and their cheek but then they make me feel so alive and melt my heart with the slightest thing like a little hug or the sound of laughter. I can't believe I made them.

I'll brag about my goddaughter. She's 14 months old and is the most gorgeous, adorable, and cute baby ever. I actually cried when I was asked to be her godmother last July

I love showing her off as well, whether it be a quick walk to Bells or a trip down town. I get loads of dirty looks though (as I'm only 16) but ask me if I'm bothered! I really enjoy taking her places as she's a pleasant little thing and is easy to look after.

re: Brag about your kids here.

Grumpette is a fine kid even though I say it meself.
Just turned 15 and full of attitude but not an ounce of nastiness. Smart yet naive. Full of confidence yet occasionally vulnerable. Sensative but can be cutting.
A bonny girl with a big shiny smile.

Just wish she would tidy that bloody bedroom

Despite some perceptions I think the kids of today are for the most part brilliant and sometimes don't get the credit they deserve.


Forgot to add,
The photos are all great but I have to say that I'm smitten by LittleMissBoromart
