There's few things that fill our hearts with more joy than celebrating the achievements of our children.
So, we can see why Chezzi Denyer (and husband, Grant) are bursting at the seams over their daughter Scout taking out the top prize in the Bathurst Eisteddfod.
As the gushing mum took to Instagram, she praised her eight-year-old daughter not only for winning, but for the way she has handled a recent Inattentive ADHD diagnosis.

"Little Sailor D, couldn't have been more proud of you this weekend. Not because you tried really hard. Not because you practiced so much. Not even because you won the 9 years Champion...," she began in the post.
"But because this year after discovering you have Inattentive ADHD and as a family making some big adjustments to help you more with this, your understanding of yourself and the pride you took in overcoming your fears gave you so much more confidence up on the stage."
She then added: "I'm always proud of you, but I'm so much more in awe of you after this weekend."

Followers flooded Chezzi's Instagram with praise for Scout and rightly so, proving you can do anything you put your mind to.
It's the first time Chezzi has spoken about the diagnosis, which is said to affect around one in 20 Australians.
ADHD, the common abbreviation of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, can come in three types; predominately hyper-impulsive, predominately inattentive and combined.
According to healthline, inattentive ADHD typically affects concentration and organisational skills, whereas hyper-impulsive typically affects more physical traits such talking, fidgeting and an ability to sit still.

Chezzi recently opened up about her own health battle with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a pregnancy complication that can cause severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss and possible dehydration.
The mother-of-two, soon to be three, revealed she'd been suffering with the illness since falling pregnant.
"I've had it each pregnancy. With the girls I got bad about 8 weeks... but this time much earlier. Can't keep food or water down. Profusely vomiting. Severe nausea. Feeling faint and dizzy. Waking through the night to throw up," the mother-of-two admitted, alongside a selfie showing her hooked up to a drip, clad in a mask.
