Having the opportunity to be a part of writing this post on behalf of Cheerios Milestones, really got me thinking. I remember a time when I used to be jealous of the other parents who would be vacuuming their cars out on Sundays like it were a new found religion. Whenever I asked them what happened this time, the response was always the same..."Cheerios!" I was jealous because I remembered all the times when I was a child and would sit with my parents at the table for breakfast and we would all eat our Cheerios while we talked about what we were going to do that day. Now, many years later, and having gotten through surviving my years of infertility, I am happy to be blessed with a backseat mess full of Cheerios from my little girl! It's funny how what seems to be a burden to one can actually be the most simple and glorious thing to someone else.
What's more is that this all has to do with cereal, but in my opinion, Cheerios isn't just any typical cereal. Cheerios has a long-standing history of being healthy and nutritious and is commonly chosen as the first "snack food" for toddlers because of it's shape, size and texture! Lately, we've been going through the MultiGrain Cheerios like crazy! They are super good and it's hard to believe that they're actually good for you because they taste far better than the sugary sweet, marshmallow flavoured cereals that try to pass themselves off as being something you should actually be feeding your family.
The other great thing that Cheerios is doing right now is hosting a Cheerios Milestones Contest! Anyone who enters, could see their child featured on a special edition Cheerios box and possibly even win $10,000 towards an RESP from TD Canada Trust! And all you have to do to enter is capture your child's Cheerios Milestone on camera and submit your photo online. As a Mom and "future tuition payer," this would put a nice little dent in our children's educational future!!!
As for my child's Cheerios milestone, while lately she has taken up the habit of marching all around the house. So the other day she took her bowl of Cheerios that was an afternoon snack, marched around the kitchen and living room, right over to one of our dog's, told him to "sit" and proceeded to feed him her Cheerios! So I guess that Cheerios are great for our pets too because Jake just loved them!
I'm also lucky enough to be hosting a little Cheerios giveaway of my own and one reader will win a copy of the Cheerios Playbook - a super cute book that actually allows your child to use their Cheerios to interact with the book - my daughter loves it!

I wrote this post on behalf of the Cheerios Milestones Blog Tour at Mom Central I received a Cheerios Milestones package and a thank you gift card in recognition of my participation.
I'm a mom and loving every second of it. I'm an infertility survivor and made it through the very worst of days. We had given up on the whole thing until July 18, 2008 when I found out that our dreams were going to come true. My husband and I now have a precious baby girl who was born on March 11, 2009 and three dogs to round it all out. We work hard to try to give our family the very best and at the end of the day still can't get over just how blessed we truly are!
