With the Thanksgiving Holiday just gone by I am sure that a lot of us were thinking about all the things in our lives that we are thankful for. I know I was.
Of course one of the most precious things I am thankful for is my daughter. In my eyes, just like any other mother, I think my daughter is amazing and I love her so much that I cannot even put it into words.
Naturally as I thought about my precious one, countless milestones came to my mind. Milestones that I will never forget!
*I remembered the first time I ever saw my daughter on the day she was born and to this day I can hear the little cry she let out as she entered the world.
*I remembered the first time my daughter said “mom mom” and “I love you mom mom.”
*I remembered the first time she walked on her own, it was on Mother’s Day!
*I remembered the first time she realized that underneath the wrapping paper was a present.
*I remembered the first time she went pee in the potty,which is still a work in progress 🙂
*How about when I learned that she did not like orange juice with pulp because she told me she did not like the “wrinkles” in the orange juice.
So many thoughts went through my mind as I sat and counted my lucky stars to be alive, have a wonderful partner, family and daughter.
Cheerios has been a part of so many families, including ours, for years now, whether it was the first finger food you gave your child, part of an art project, or is still your families favorite cereal and they recognize the importance of milestones to parents.
Cheerios is currently running a Cheerios Milestone Contest where they are asking that you share your Cheerios Milestones. Here is what you have to do if you want to enter:
*You will have to go to the Cheerios Milestone Contest site and upload a picture of your child illustrating one of their Cheerios Milestone moments. It could be the first time they ate Cheerios, art they did with Cheerios or any Milestone as long as it is a Cheerios moment.
*By entering a photo you could have your child featured on a special edition Cheerios Box and WIN $10,000 towards an RESP from TD Canada Trust!
(By entering a photo, you’ll be entered for a chance to be one of 20 finalists to appear on a special edition Cheerios Box and win Cheerios for a year! PLUS one lucky grand prize winner will walk away with $10,000 towards an RESP from TD Canada Trust!)
*Contest closes on December 15th, 2010.
Here is another bonus for readers of Expecting Mom Parenting Blog; if you share a milestone with us in our comments section, you will be entered to win a Cheerios Playbook.
Only one entry per person for the Cheerios Playbook. The Cheerios Playbook contest ends October 29th, 2010. Only one Cheerios Playbook is available so one lucky reader who leaves a mini milestone as a comment on this post will be chosen as the winner.
Good luck with your entries for both the Cheerios Milestone Contest and for our Cheerios Playbook contest.
