Such a Proud Mother…

Today my pride in my son knows no bounds.

Today he found a way to thrill my heart beyond its bounds.

Today he did something that I had only ever dreamed would be possible.






I kid you not.

He was neither asked, nor expected to vacuum. In setting up his newly repaired computer he noticed the desk was dusty so cleaned it thoroughly.

That’s not even the best bit…

When he had finished

he packed up the vacuum cleaner


put it away.

The smile has not left my face all day.

  14. Wow. I am speechless with admiration.
    That’s quite a young man you’ve raised.

  20. And now you’ve punished him by broadcasting it to the world! Hmmm maybe his friends don’t read your blog?
