January, the time of year when we start to reflect on what was and what is to come. As you may recall, I was a Fisher Price Mom in 2012 and I’m excited to announce that in 2013 my role has changed as I am now a Fisher Price Play Ambassador. I’m excited to share this journey with you.
2012 was a wonderful year full of blessings for our family and as we embark on 2013 we are filled with hopes and dreams for our family and our little ones.
As we get ready for 2013 the biggest milestone we foresee is our baby girl starting kindergarten…EEK, cue the tears. We have molded and shaped Jane into the little girl that she is today. We have read to her, played with her and allowed her “guided freedom” to begin to learn about this thing we call life. This fall the big yellow school bus will arrive at our doorstep taking Jane (and us) into the next chapter of life.
Wow, that is a scary thought…
As much as I want to slow down this milestone, I know that my hubby and I have done our best to ensure she is ready for this.
We realize the importance of educating our children prior to them going to school. Our youngest can write, recognize her own name, count, etc, etc and we know without a doubt that she is ready for this journey…even if we are feeling a little apprehensive.
There are many learning tools and resources that we have used to help Jane become the confident, independent child she is. Fisher Price has great resources that help children reach the next educational milestone in their lives and Jane has learned many new concepts through play.
As a parent it is normal for us to strive for our children to get as much of a leg up as they can. My husband and I admit that we are guilty of pushing our girls to do their best and to us that means that they TRY their best and have a GOOD ATTITUDE. They don’t have to be first, but if they tried their best, then we as parents are as proud as can be.
Lets all help our children as they get ready for this year.
What are some of milestones you foresee your child(ren) reaching this year?
