  1. Our 2 kids (5 years and 3.5 years) got pedal bikes for Christmas and we are now riding the trails together!! I’m so impressed by these two! ❤️ Would love to have a fun night at the theater with them!

  2. My 4 year old Magnolia has recently begun watching America Ninja Warrior and America Junior Ninja Warrior! She sets up obstacle courses wherever she goes and commentates as she runs through them. We love watching her and can’t wait until she’s old enough to go to the Flipside Ninja Park to really train 🙂

  3. My 13yr old overcame difficult algebra problems after struggling, my 11yr old learned to drive and park gator, and 3yr old has learned to associate ABC’s with actual letters. Each achievement big or small,is praise worthy and makes me happy 😁❤️

  4. My two-year-old most noteworthy achievement lately is his ability to quote lines from Lady and Tramp.

  5. My girls both got hoverboards for Christmas, and now they create coordinated dance routines while ON the hoverboards! This would be right up their alley!

  6. My 5 year old helped clean and reorganize his room, and actually did a lot of the work!!

  7. My youngest got 2nd place in her school spelling bee! My oldest has straight As in her first year of middle school!

  8. My youngest just learned how to ride a bike this past fall and has already been going on 10 mile bike trips on the greenway with her dad!

  9. For months, my son was SUPER nervous about driving. To the point it was giving him anxiety. We put it on the back burner until one day he said he was ready. It’s been several months now and he’s doing an amazing job!!! Practicing daily and hoping we can schedule his test next month. This would be a great way to celebrate!

  10. My daughter was in her first talent show at preschool recently…she loved showing off her ballet moves she’s been practicing!

  11. My five year old son has Cystic Fibrosis and has a hard time gaining weight. He got his feeding tube a year ago and at his quarterly appointment on the 21st finally made it to the 96th percentile!! He also learned to shoot a BB gun this weekend and blasted 6 balloons off of a close line with one shot each!

  12. My oldest just graduated from bootcamp. Marine bootcamp!!! My 2 youngest are both on the honor roll this quarter. Beyond proud!

  13. My son climbs everything in sight! He especially loves bouldering and rock wall climbing. He’d be very impressed by the acrobats!

  14. My son is turning 15 ib the 13. He amazes me with is creations! Anything out of card board! He built a robot, a shoe (that he could wear), masks, key chains, back pack you name it! I’m not even going to start about the legos!

  15. My youngest did not attend preschool like his older brothers, so we’ve been worried about him being behind in reading. He recently joined the AR program at school, and is so proud!

  16. My son Jonas always makes my jaw drop because he gets compliments on his manners from other parents. That will make your heart happy!

  17. My daughter recently has started jumping from her bed into Daddy’s arms. He must be on his toes to ensure he is ready for her leaps

  18. My daughter has learned to skate, really well! And my youngest finally loves preschool, which took a while!

  19. my 18 month old rolled face first down a small set of stairs (3 to be exact). I was mortified but to my surprise she landed on her bottom, upright with a smile on her face! It was more like a controlled tumble down the stairs rather than a fall! I need to enroll her in gymnastics bc she seems like a natural gymnast.

  20. My seven year old is a dare devil on skis & scared us to death when he about flew off the mountain going really fast around a tight curve!

  21. My 7 year old has sold over 500 boxes of Girl Scout cookies…and yes, she sold them, not mommy and daddy!

  22. My 16 year old has successfully completed 2 full weeks of school for the first time in 2 school years!

  23. My 15 year old daughter is randomly opening up and connecting with us and asking for advice. That’s a huge feat, as any parent of a teen knows! Oh. And she is learning to drive and scaring the crap out of me! (Dad will be teaching her from now on…) haha

  24. My daughter loves to tumble, but recently at her gymnastics practice she fumbled on her back handspring. The result was a broken ring finger – broken completely at the base of the finger and knuckle. The X-ray was jaw-dropping to say the least.

  25. My daughter is taking a Circus Arts class. She is so brave to climb up the silks and hang upside down! I’m proud of her courage!

  26. Our 3 year old drew a picture of a person, not a stick person. It had a head, face, triangle body, arms and legs! He JUST turned 3. I didn’t know he could draw like that!

  27. Our younger granddaughter has the most amazing sense of humor for a 10-year-old and has the greatest come-backs to keep us laughing.

  28. My youngest recently competed in her first gymnastics meet. She came home with 4 medals! I beyond proud of her!!

  29. My daughter Sadie amazes me everyday. For an9 year old, she’s pretty selfless. She’s got a fraternal, twin sister with autism. She is no -verbal and is considered severe. Sadie plays & helps me watch Becca in a daily basis. The other afternoon, she slices bananas and put them in a plate for her sister and filled her supply cup with water. She proceeded to sing, dance and play with her. I was so thankful for her at that moment. She performs other fantastic feats such as these on the daily!!! She deserves a special night out to relax and enjoy this awesome show!!!

  34. I have 3 kids of all different skill levels and talents. My teen son volunteered last sat for several hours in the cold and when I went to tell my husband how hard and cold it was he was like “it wasn’t that bad” and he never complained!!! That was amazing.

  35. Having a daughter with a chronic disease who fearlessly endures feeding tube, breathing treatments, chest therapies, etc, and seeing her “normal” brother put her first so often, both of my children make my jaw drop with inspiration, daily!

  36. He made a fabulous 100 day hat all by himself with 100 strips of paper each designed in its own unique pattern.

  37. We live on a hill so it has been difficult to teach the kids to ride their bikes. My youngest got a new bike for Christmas and they have been riding their bikes on our new trails and sidewalks with their dad. I’m really proud of them. Also, my youngest got a 100% on his last spelling test! And my oldest had a great report card!

  38. My daughters are now teens and one is great with trumpet and the other is great at dance. They amaze me daily!!!

  39. My little man would LOVE this show and it would be a nice reward for moving to a higher reading level this montb!

  40. Our 6yo ACTUALLY brushed his teeth, from floss to mouthwash, all by himself, and without us repeating “Brush your teeth!”!

  42. My granddaughter amazes me with her dance, aerobi and scholastic skills everyday.

  44. My daughter takes the act that day feb 25th! A night out would b good way to unwind! I’m proud of her going twice per week for math tutoring in preparation.

  45. We have had a hard year, and my kiddos have continued to love each other and have learned resilience and taught us joy and delight as we have dealt with grief, stress, and change. Seeing them work through learning to have character in tough times is hard but beautiful. And I’m really proud of them.
