Today's giveaway is this piece of wall art from our new mom rules: "Try New Things!"
|measures 9x16, made from wood composite and canvas|
Trying new things is always a bit of a challenge for 2 out of 3 of my boys (if we're talking about food.) My most adventurous eater is strangely enough the one most likely to be nervous or hesitant when it comes to new experiences. Sometimes you never can tell who's going to do what or what new thing will be an issue, kids are notoriously surprising like that! Recently it was our 5 year old who struggled with a new thing: he started soccer (which he LOVED and seriously rocked at last year) and was super pumped all the first day right up until he got into the van and then it was tears all the way there and "I don't want to play soccerrrrr!!!" But we carried onward, quickly realizing we were not even going to keep talking about it. We weren't going to get an answer as to why (we never did figure it out and sometimes there is no reason why!) Once he got there he dried his tears, jumped right in and was back to loving it again, just as we knew (ok, hoped) he would! He even got picked up and spun around by a little teammate when he scored a goal!
