I’m sharing Teddy Soft Bakes in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™ #myfirstTeddy #discoverTeddy
Parenting can be hard. That might be the only thing all parents can agree on.
Just when we think we have one thing under control, something new pops up, especially as our kids get older.
It’s easy to focus on the mom fails (or dad fails) and forget that we are actually doing something right.
So, I’m trying to recognize those good moments. Those moments that make me feel like I’m on top of my parenting game (or at least make me feel better about those fails):
When my kids want to spend time with me. Long gone are the baby and toddler days in my house, where my kids were seemingly attached to me at all time. But wanting to cuddle up on the couch to watch a movie or when they take my hand when we’re walking: those are sweet moments. And a child who asks if we can sit out on the deck and read together totally makes my day.
When someone else compliments my kids. Look, all parents think their kids are pretty awesome(even though we know they all have their less than stellar moments), but when someone else compliments them on their behavior or attitude or manners, I feel like maybe I’ve done at least something right. (Because I know this gives me the warm and fuzzies, I try to notice and tell other parents something positive about their kids, too)
When I get to see my kids doing something they’re excited about. Seeing their dedication and enthusiasm is pretty cool. Whether it’s soccer, baseball, running, or chess, I’m a proud and happy mom when I can see them in their element.
When my boys get along. There are less than three and a half years separating my three boys from oldest to youngest. That can often mean they’re arguing or annoying each other. But then there are those moments when they stick up for one another or just plain want to spend time together.
When my kids agree on something. Related to when they get along, but this is that magical moment when they all agree on what movie to watch or what they want for dinner. There’s no need to go to a vote or figure out whose turn it is to get their say.
For a snack, my kids always agree on Teddy Soft Bakes, a delicious treat with chocolate or vanilla filling. Discover Teddy and discover a snack your kids will agree on, too, from the time they try My First Teddy. And since these treats have no high-fructose corn syrup, and no artificial flavors or colors, that’s another mom win- we have to take those where we can!
