Milestones are something all parents pay attention to. Whether it’s to monitor our children’s progress, or completing our kid’s baby books (Does anyone actually finish those?), milestones are important to every parent. If I’m to think about a particular memorable milestone involving my own children, I would have to say that walking for my first born, my son, was a stressful one. He was a late walker, well over 18 months in fact. He could cruise the furniture, but simply refused to walk. I wasn’t really worried about him until my doctor told me that I should absolutely be concerned. He sent me to a specialist, who was also concerned. He then proceeded to tell me that my son needed x-rays and blood taken from the heels of his feet. I made an appointment and left. The next day I cancelled it, and I’m glad I did. Two weeks later, the little man who refused to walk, was running around like a champ.
Cheerios is also currently celebrating milestones, would love to invite you to enter their contest. You can go to www.cheerios.ca until December 15, 2010, to upload a favorite photo of your child – in doing so, you will 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! And one grand prize winner will win $10,000 RESP from TD Canada Trust.”
You can also enter a mini “Milestones” giveaway here as well. Leave me a comment below, telling me about a memorable milestone involving your children. One winner will win a Cheerios playbook (I actually bought this for my kids years ago, because they loved Cheerios, and they loved playing with it). This contest ends Friday, October 29th, 2010.
Disclosure – I am participating in the Cheerios Milestones program by Mom Central on behalf of General Mills. I received a gift card as a thank you for my participation. The opinions on this blog are my own.
