Celebrating Life’s Firsts the #BetterFirsts Way
We are choosing My First Bear Paws Cookies to help us along the way with a creative snack for toddlers.
How many firsts do you experience in life? As an individual, as a couple, as a parent? If you can calculate that in your head then bravo! Because that is one massive number.
Truth be told, it’s a little daunting to think back on all those firsts. All the uncertainties and yet here we are, hopefully still in one piece! As parents, we’re not only experiencing firsts ourselves, but also through the eyes of our children.
What Did We Get Into? Oh Ya It’s Called Parenthood
Being a parent, it’s like being given a bike without training wheels and everyone just expecting you to hop on with ease and start gliding down the road of parenthood. But if you’re a parent like me, you know that it’s just not how it happens! We fall, we have embarrassing moments, and of course we are experiencing our child’s “firsts” for the first time as well.
There’s uncertainty and sometimes massive fails, but what if I told you we can have better firsts? Maybe that means a little more grace for yourself or child, or maybe that just means making a “first” more special with a delicious and nutritious snack break.
It just so happens that the youngest member of our family is going through a “first” moment right now, and I can’t tell you how excited we all are!
The Last Firsts | The #BetterFirsts Way
So I’m here to share with you another last-first as our youngest transitions from her crib into a full-sized bed. Seven years…. It’s been seven years since I assembled that crib in the nursery, and now taking it down just seems to have opened the flood gate of memories. So many precious memories… (sigh)
But. And this is a huge but, I can’t tell you how much it warms my heart to see our little girl thriving into a young lady. That’s why making this transition into her first big girl bed is so important to me that we get it right, for her sake and mine.

Transitioning Evelyn into her first big girl bed hasn’t been the easiest. Especially when it comes to nap times. Did I mention we are potty training? Ya, we are… so we’ve also been dealing with poopy accidents mid nap time….parenting can be so glamorous!

Taking Our #BetterFirsts Moments To The Ocean
Evelyn also recently experienced her first ferry ride to Vancouver Island. And how did we choose to make this a better first moment? Haha do I really even need to say, these pictures sure speak for themselves!
It was so great! Not only was snacking a fun activity to do mid voyage, but it also kept her mind off of the bitter wind on deck.
Honestly, whether you’re experiencing a new moment with your first child or your last, each moment counts. Being present. Taking it in. There’s nothing better than being right in the thick of it with the little ones you love so dear.
