    My kids range from mediocre to above average, but I can say they all have pretty good hearts IMO

    Maybe your definition of amazing differs from theirs? :dontknow:

    My kids are pretty awesome and have done some amazing things, in my mind. Like making me a Grandma. I found that to be pretty spectacular...but to the average person I'm sure it was mundane.

    it just seems to be the buzz word for describing one's children today. it's irritating.

    They aren't perfect but they're pretty damn awesome. :D

    It's just a parental thing. At least for most parents I know. Unconditional love & pride. Feel that way about our puppy, too. I'm a sap. :wub:

    The same way a chick with huge tits doesn't have to go around saying she has huge tits parents with amazing kids don't have to go around saying they have amazing kids. Parents probably have a set of them bologna kids.
