being MVP: My Kid is a Superstar, how about yours? @StanfordChild #YourExtraordinaryKid #CGC

My Kid is a Superstar, how about yours? @StanfordChild #YourExtraordinaryKid #CGC


I have to admit that I am that parent who thinks their child is the best and every little moment and achievement they accomplish deserves praise. Kenzie is now slowly getting into her own and her personality is shining through like the star she is. I believe that celebrating your child for the little things and small moments that may only be shared between the two of you creates a special bond and gives them encouragement for success.


Kenzie loves to dance and sing and while technically she isn't some sort of genius or prodigy, I love her performances and clap like her biggest fan. She is also learning to read and I give her high fives like they are going out of style whenever she finds sight words...in her books, on my Kindle, on my phone, on outdoor signs and more. I am positive that these precious moments of bonding with my daughter will only give her the confidence in her academic and social future. 


How amazing would it be to go to a hospital that is dedicated towards giving you extraordinary care no matter if your visit is routine or rare? Stanford Children's Health and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford has been the top-ranked children's hospital in Northern California for over a decade. They are the largest healthcare provider with an exclusive focus on children and expectant women. What amazing facilities for you and your child(ren)!


When I pick up Kenzie from preschool on Fridays after work (I leave 1.5 hrs earlier on Fridays), it is mommy and daughter date time. We go to the playground, grab some snacks, make ice cream, splash around with water toys, ride bikes and/or do some toy shopping. I cherish these moments, although short, because I am truly focused on her without Mason. She loves singing me the new songs she learned at school as well as showing off her new dance moves. Check out this fun personalized video I made of special moments I captured of her.

“Your kid is extraordinary. Show them how much you enjoy every moment together by creating a special video of your own!"

What small moments do you celebrate with your extraordinary kid?

  3. I celebrate my girls each day and hope that the more time we spend together the more they will cherish those times as they get older.

  4. My daughter struggles with a lot of learning disabilities. So every time she learns something new; or lets her personality shine through even with the difficulties in her communication; those are the little moments we like to celebrate!

  8. I just enjoy sitting back and listening to them practice their instruments. They practice every day because they want to, not because they have to.

  15. Awe... I love that you spend that time making memories with your little one. Thankfully I am home with the kids all the time, so we do things all the time, but sometimes it is nice to spend time one-on-one with each of them... they love it and so do I!

  20. I have baby #2 on the way so I take as many moments as I can to hold my first baby and tell him I love him. I want to remember every moment I can of him at this stage and him being my only baby.

  22. Every milestone that my children reached, or everything new that they learned was special to me and I will always remember it. It is nice to have some alone time together with each child to enjoy.
