Today’s giveaway was inspired by Miss L and her current love of a certain book. As it often happens, the words “I quit” started floating around our house in recent months. They were followed by temper tantrums of stubbornness and general unpleasantness all around. So I thought of a few ways to try and work around this new mantra, and Rosie Revere, Engineer was step number one. It was a book that a fellow parent had recommended and once I flipped through it I knew it was perfect.
And thus, Rosie entered our lives and introduced Miss L to perseverance in spite of what others think. To follow through and finish and not to give up. And that path led us down more… such as finishing a virtual 5K no matter how sore our legs are nor how far away our house is… you start something then you can finish it.
And just last Sunday, when I was joking with Mr. M and threw my hands up in the air and said, “I give up!” a little voice turned to me and said, “No quitting Mommy!” That’s when I knew that the lessons were getting through and that work we were doing was paying off!
So for the little tike in your life, today’s contest winner will get a copy of Rosie Revere, Engineer!
