In most families it is normally the parents who are proud of their children’s accomplishments. In my life the situation seems to be decidely reversed… which is probably for the best, as it prevents accomplishments from going to your head. The scientific community seems pretty happy with the arrangement too.
Needless to say I’m hugely proud of my parents who just recieved this notice:
