    OK... here my 1st brag:-
    DS8 told me a big boy walked up to him today when he was at Grade 5 math class and said "Hi Shortie". DS8 replied "Hi Tall-y".
    I was proud that he wasn't bothered by it but came out with a way to deal with it himself. smile

    That's awesome S-T! I wouldn't be surprised if the two ended up as friends. At the very least, I'm sure the older boy respected his ability to take in stride. WOW! grin

    Congrats to your DS S-T! It's always amazing when you realize they can take care of it without you, isn't it?

    I love it! Great come back- neutral enough that it couldn't be construed as insulting.

    ok, I have one about DS:

    we have some cabinets that are locked with a magnetic key. Of course DS discovered ages ago how to open them... but a few days ago he actually was trying another of the magnets that we have in the fridge! He is just 2.5...

    My 10 year old son has become very interested in American history and culture, especially from World War II to the present. He knows more about 80's and 90's culture than I remember thanks to You Tube videos and web sites showing popular shows, cartoons, music, toys, commercials, etc. I have enjoyed listening to them discuss 80's and 90's history and culture with his sister, who was born in the 80's.

    I think this is my first brag:

    DD10's poem was selected from our state to a national poetry competition. We found out earlier this week about it and should know in April how she did nationally. Her teacher encouraged her to enter the competition after a classroom poetry assignment. Her classmates made a big deal about it at school (teacher was notified about the selection) which was wonderful to her self confidence.
