The Avocado

The Avocado Parenting Thread is Proud of Itself

Hello fellow parents and caregivers of children!

There are a bunch of new parents here (raises hand) and there are plenty of veteran parents, as well as people who have experience caring or helping to care for children, like teachers, baby-sitters, aunts, and uncles. Coming together will help all of us, whether we need advice, commiseration, or just a space to let it out. Being a caregiver of small humans can be hard, but also rewarding and wonderful, so we can also share in the joys of watching little humans get to be big humans.

Suggested topic: Pride

There’s a line in the musical Hamilton, when the titular character and his friend/arch-nemesis Burr are both singing about their children that goes: “Pride is not the word I’m looking for.” It so perfectly encapsulates what parenting is and how I feel about my kid, but in the absence of any other word, we’ll stick with pride as the theme.

What’s something that makes you proud, of either your parenting abilities or your kid?
