The adventures of Jack Jack

The adventures of a first time Mummy and my son Jack.

Loud ‘n’ proud

How many times have you been in the middle of writing a tweet or Facebook status about your child’s achievements only to delete or reword it because others may think you’re bragging or showing off? Loud ‘n’ proud is a blog linky run by 4 wonderful bloggers: 3 Children and It, Mum of Three World, Secrets of the Sandpit and Not My Year Off, where you can shout to the rafters about your or your child’s latest achievements.

So with that in mind I want to blog about my son Jacks latest triumphs. Jack was a pretty lazy baby, happy to be carried everywhere and didn’t make an effort to crawl until he was 10 months old. Since then he has taken off with his development. He is now nearly 21 months old and walks, runs, jumps and holds conversations with me. I’m very proud of the fact he can put his own shoes on and in the morning he pulls his top on, brushes his teeth and hair and washes and dries his face all by himself. I didn’t have the best childhood but that has made me even more determined to make Jacks the best it can be. He is my superstar helping me overcome my social phobia and confidence issues due to my past.

My father had been ill throughout my entire pregnancy and passed away when Jack was just two months old, yet through all of that my little ray of sunshine was there to give me strength. When I was upset or stressed while organizing my fathers funeral my little boy was there playing with my hair or snuggling up close.

I am extremely proud of my son and how caring he can be. If I’m having a down day he will hold my hand and say “Mummy mwah?” before giving me a big hug and kiss. When a cat with a lump on its head wandered into the house during the recent sunny weather Jack gave the cat some fuss saying “awww Kitty”. I can only hope he keeps his empathy and respect for all living creatures as he grows up.

    Such a love post!
    It can be tricky walking the line between being proud of our little ones and it coming across as bragging.
