We are a big Cheerios family. (No, I’m not talking about the Glee Cheerleaders) Love them for all ages and sizes of people. We like original Cheerios and Apple Cinnamon and Multi-Grain, and of course Honey Nut. We have not been without a box of Cheerios ever since darling youngest daughter was about eight months old. Which brings me to my milestone moment. I still remember giving my oldest daughter her first solid food. The first real solid thing I ever gave her was a Cheerio. No, seriously! Another Mommy friend Lisa leaned over and handed me a couple of Cheerios at Gymboree play and music in London when Payton was about eight months old. Up until then I had been going oh so slow with the food. Cautious first time parent so nervous to introduce foods. Anyways Payton made the most hysterical face I will never forget. We called it “new food face” for many years after. Despite the silly prune new food face, she quickly grew to love Cheerios as do the rest of us. Now Cheerios is running a Milestones Blog Tour and I am a part of that with Mom Central Canada. All you have to do to enter the big contest with Cheerios is: visit their web site: (  and upload a picture of your child. If you win you could see your child’s picture on a limited edition box of Cheerios and you could also win Cheerios for one year. One lucky grand prize winner will also win part of their child’s education – a $10,000 gift towards an RESP from TD Canada Trust. The contest closes Dec. 15th, so what are you waiting for?
Also as a blogger with Mom Central Canada I have been offered some prizes of my own to give to you: One lucky reader will win a Cheerios Play Book, a great toy for reading and learning, a staple of shopping carts everywhere.
For my mini-milestones contest all you have to do is:
1. Leave me a comment telling me one of your child’s milestones.
2. Follow me on twitter @inkscrblr
3. Don’t forget to leave your contact information so we can send the prize to you.
I will draw one name on Oct. 30th. Last day to enter is Oct. 29th.
