Raising a child is quite the experience. While there are plenty of peaceful, relaxing moments spent cuddling with our little bundles of joy, there are also frustrating moments, funny moments and so many moments that, for whatever reason, we remember for the rest of our lives. That’s the inspiration behind the new Fisher-Price Million Moments of Joy campaign and this contest celebrates all those over-the-top moments of parenthood, from the heart-warming to the hilarious!
Just visit www.fisherprice.ca/momentsofjoy and upload a picture, video or story that celebrates your OVERwhelming moments of motherhood and you’ll be entered to win one of eight prize packs worth approximately $200! Each pack contains a My Little Snugabunny Bouncer, a Laugh & Learn Dance & Play Puppy and an Ocean Wonders Aquarium and will help you enjoy all those magical moments with your little ones!
Personally, one of my most memorable moments was the OVERtired time right after my youngest son was born. The pregnancy had been harder on me than before and the hospital had, for the first time ever in my many visits there, been horrible. I knew from past experience that my labour was likely to progress quickly once it started, but the nurses seemed certain there would be plenty of time and left me in admissions for over an hour as the pain swept over my body in waves and I writhed silently on the bed to avoid disturbing the three other women the room. I’ve always been so impressed by the caring staff at our local hospital in the past, so the feeling of being ignored was new to me and rather terrifying.
Sure enough, just after finally entering the delivery room, I was in the final stages of labour. Minutes later, my baby boy was in my arms. The worry, the fear and the pain was all forgotten in that moment and all that I could think about was how happy I was to be holding my baby and how badly I wanted to go to sleep. The stress had drained me more than the pain and I fell asleep cuddling my baby soon after.
Motherhood is full of OVERpowering moments like my labour experience with my youngest son and sharing them in the Fisher-Price Million Moments of Joy campaign may just win you a fabulous prize pack for your little darling. So check out www.fisherprice.ca/momentsofjoy and enter your moment of joy for a chance to win. The contest opened March 5, 2013, so there are only six weeks left to win one of the weekly prize packs!
