*Update: Congrats to our giveaway winners: Janet, who pledged to eat healthier and be a better person and Carol, who pledged to exercise 5x a week (you go, girl!)
As I reach the halfway point in my pregnancy, I have really started thinking about the new little life we’re bringing into the world. I have had just over 3 years experience now as a parent and I have a pretty good idea of what needs to be done to ensure my kids grow up strong and healthy. We’re not full of super healthy habits but that’s something that will always be a work-in-progress and that’s ok.
So, today I clicked over to Gerber’s Start Healthy, Stay Healthy Campaign. I thought, now is as good a time as any to make a pledge to myself and my girls to take care of each of us. Starting with me. I may be pregnant but it’s not too late for me to get into an exercise routine. This is also a good age for my 3 year old to take an interest in what I’m doing. She can join right in with me. We also do our best to make sure she is getting the nutrition that she needs to keep her healthy. It’s amazing how quickly these kids grow! Then, there is our newest family member, a little girl yet to see the world. It will be our responsibility to make sure she is getting everything she needs until she can start making choices of her own.
I created a pledge today for my two girls and myself. I know that I want to be around for a long time. I want to see them grow up and I want to grow old with my husband. It’s our duty to take care of ourselves so we can make that pledge a reality. You can create a pledge too. It’s fun and sometimes just seeing it in pictures and words makes it easier to put into action.
I may be a total pro at this pregnancy and mom thing now (he he he) but I still like to stay current on the newest trends in the parenting and baby world. So, I’ll be spending a lot of time over at Gerber’s Start Healthy, Stay Healthy Resource Center. I still have plenty of questions about nursing and nutrition for my kids and I have trusted Gerber for as long as I can remember.
To celebrate this important campaign reminding us to take care of ourselves and our families, we’re giving away two Gerber diaper bag backpacks filled with a recipe tin and a teddy bear. This giveaway is only open to US residents.
