Fisher Price: Moments of Joy

I am mom of young children.  I have also fostered other young children.  To give you an idea of my house, I am pleased to announce that for the first time in 6 1/2 years, my house is diaper free.  Oh yes, you read that correctly.  At one point I had three children in diapers. I think I permanently smelled like poop for a year during that, by the way. 

My house knows toys.  The toys I choose to buy for my kids are usually ones that I know will be able to handle the level of participation that this offers, plus is a brand I trust.  I had Fisher Price toys as a child, as I know many of you did as well.  Some of my moms favorite photos of me have me playing with my googley eyed Fisher Price phone. 

Those are moments that became precious memories for her.  I have the same kind of moments.  The ones that I know my young children will likely not remember when they are older, but I will never forget.  Those moments of joy.  Not the posed photo moments.  Those real life moments.  When the lighting is horrible.  When I only had a crummy point and shoot and didn’t know a thing about photography.  But the photo captured my child’s joy or my joy in my child in that moment.

Fisher Price has a new program called Moments of Joy.  Upload your moments and share.  You could win $1000 just by uploading your moments.  You will automatically be entered when you share your photos.  You share on your blog, on facebook, on twitter, and on Instagram, so why not show off your sweet kiddos over at Fisher Price, too. 

You can upload your moments easily directly on their facebook app, too.  You know you are on facebook multiple times a day (don’t deny it).  While you are on there, head over to Fisher Price on facebook and like them, too.  The app is very quick and easy to use. You can sign in with Facebook, Instagram or Fisher-Price. Then pick whether you want to upload a video, photo or story. You can even upload straight from Instagram! Then add a description, who is in the photo and you are all set. Official sweepstakes rules can be found here.

Five weekly winners will be randomly selected for $100 gift cards, along with one grand prize winner selected at random to win up to $1,000 of Fisher-Price toys!  I don’t know about you, but that sounds awesome to me. 

Here is one of the photos I shared.  This is one of those photos that has a story behind it and is so precious to me.  Charley was obsessed with being like her brother.  She would run in his room and get his clothes to wear them whenever she could.  She would dig into the dirty clothes hamper to grab his underwear (her favorite thing).  She had not interest in potty training, but loved his underwear.  Makes me smile just looking at it.

Now she would not do that to be like her brother.  now she would do something similar, but her intentions would be to torment and tease.  Oh how the times change.  Winking smile Look at how little she is!  It hurts my heart just to see it.  She is now riding a bike without training wheels (because she cannot let Cole be able to do anything that she cannot do).

Here is another one of Cole and his best buddy Roxi.  Roxi is no longer with us, so this photo is very precious and no doubt will be one he will cherish, even if she was moving and blurry.  *Sniff*  Roxi was my baby before I had babies.  *Sniff, sniff*

Share your moment.  Share that perspective.  Share that brief glimpse.  So many other moms will appreciate seeing it just as much as you will love sharing it.  I want to see them.  So when you share come by and let me know, or tweet at me so I can go over and see them. 

Disclosure: I was provided information of the website, promotion, and giveaway by Fisher-Price and was compensated for this post.  This compensation in no way effects my opinion or love for Fisher-Price products or the company.  I loved their products as a very young child and now purchase them for my children.  This post and my involvement with them in relationship to this post has nothing to do with that.  I would recommend their products any time and place to anyone.  Period.
