Brag On Your Kids Day

I came across a blogger today who had a great idea. She gave us permission to brag on our kids! Too often we try so hard not to be "that mom" who tells anyone within earshot how wonderful her kids are, that we don't brag on them at all. Or worse, we only share the "bad and the ugly" (not the good) in hopes of being relatable. So today, let me tell you how wonderful my kids are:

Reed is best defined by his athletic ability. He amazes me with the natural talent that he has at many sports, but especially basketball. He is so fun to watch on the court! He has never shown interest in playing any organized sport other than basketball (and homeschool soccer), but I am pretty sure that if he gave football or baseball a try he'd excel at those sports also. (Yep, I said it. I'm allowed to brag on him, remember??)

Reed is funny. He's learning quick come-backs and one-liners just like his Dad, and is getting pretty good at them. Lord, help me!

I'm sorry, (no, I'm really not) but Reed is handsome. So handsome. I adore his flawless skin (envy it, really), deep baby blues, those lips... I could go on and on. Let's just say I think he's gonna turn a few heads in the next couple of years. And I won't like it... just being honest.

Miles is an entertainer. Loves the spotlight. Keeps us in stitches. He is in his element when he has the attention of everyone in the room. This year he was the only Kindergardener who tried out for a part for the children's musical at church. And he got a little part that is right up his alley.

Miles has a beautiful singing voice. Perfect pitch, right on key. Often after we've put him to bed at night we'll hear him in there singing to himself. Love those moments.

Miles is a good friend, and everyone wants to be his friend. On any given Sunday in Kids Worship, there are 4 or 5 boys his age fighting - literally pushing and shoving - over who is going to sit beside Miles that day. And he eats it up.

There you have it... my kids rock. To participate or to read about someone else's awesome kids, visit It's Almost Naptime.
