Post by Danielle, Creative Director at The Land of Nod
At Nod we have a little saying…Celebrate Tuesday. We believe that memories aren’t just created in big epic events like over the top birthday parties or holidays, but rather in the small spaces between the hustle of the everyday. For example, the best part of your day might just be a belly laugh from your toddler over toaster pancakes. Even though there are dirty dishes in the sink, syrup in her hair and you’re running late, if your little one laughed, that day’s a successful one in our books!
Of course as parents we’re all grateful for our children and the joy they bring us, but that doesn’t mean that we’re not sometimes at our limit, totally frazzled and the thing we’re celebrating on a given day is simply that it’s finally, mercifully, bedtime. And that’s okay. We like to call this our no-judgement journey through parenting. Celebrate Tuesday for us isn’t about creating another thing that parents feel they need to live up to. Certainly we all have enough of those pressures in our lives. But rather, an opportunity to find the joy and humor in the everyday. The sweet and silly moments between the madness and chaos of raising a young family.
So, I invite you to Celebrate Tuesday with us. Tag #celebratetuesday on Instagram, and follow along on the blog as some of our friends share how they’re celebrating the awesome ridiculousness of the everyday with their kiddos.
