Celebrating parenting wins with #dropthecrayon

Have you ever outsmarted, finally figured out or actually got your kid to do what you asked them to?! We don’t drop the mic, we drop the crayon! Whoop whoop!

I finally got my preschooler to eat veggies by putting chopped pieces in an egg Carton and called it the ‘share bin’! As I dropped it off on the table, she giggled with excitement to eat a sugar snap, my husband and I caught each other’s eye and did a silent “boo yeah!”

It’s easy to complain but sharing smart/fun/ridiculous stories of when you did a great job (at the toughest job in the world), well WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE YOUR AWEOMSONESS. Plus, we will all learn some new tricks tactics. So let’s start celebrating when we totally nail this whole parenting thing.

Drop your comment below with your most recent parenting win and remember to use the #dropthecrayon

  • This is such a good idea! My daughter has become such a picky eater. It is ridiculous. When she turns 2 I’ll try this trick (I don’t think she would get it quite yet). What a great idea. I love the hashtag too!

  • Oh, my most recent parenting win was an 11 hour travel day in which my baby fussed for only five minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • glad I can help Zarnia. I’ve just found that even changing the shape food is in keeps their interest. Like shredded carrots vs sliced or whole carrots. Enjoy the ride!

    My daughter is only 4 months old so I don’t have very many tactics (tricks) yet. However, we have a chair we call her poop chair because if she hasn’t in a day or two without fail after twenty minutes in the chair we hear the successful sound of a poop-splosion. Chalk it up to the first of many parenting wins!
