As a mother I am so excited when my son does things that make me proud. He is the smartest little boy I have ever met. He knows all of his letters (can point them out and can say most of them). Knows about 10 or more shapes (can point them out), and knows numbers 1-10 (can say about 5 and can point out the rest). Every time he does something amazing like this I want to shout it out. But I don't want others feeling like I am bragging about him. I mean lets face it. Everyone else on facebook likes to post videos, update their status, or post pictures when their kid does something good. So why do I feel a hesitation when I want to post something online or even bring him up in conversation. I am his mom. I should be proud to talk about it. But I don't want to hurt others feelings because my son is so much more advanced. It doesn't help that many times if I do say something about what he has done another mom makes a comment "wow, I need to start working with my kid more". At that point I don't know what to say.
Thanks for letting me vent. Any advice would be appreciated.
