Happy Healthy Hip Parents

I've been a Mom for just under five years. There should be a celebration for parents when we reach that milestone.

Among family, friends, colleagues and clients, I know some pretty amazing Moms and Dads. Many of us don't get the recognition that we deserve for our sleepless nights, endless worries and countless miles of carpooling our drooling, crying, adorable kids from doctor's appointments to soccer practice, play dates to birthday parties.

Most parents may not think of themselves worthy of a Parent of the Year award, but they're definitely Happy Healthy Hip Parents 24/7.

High school friends I've been reacquainted with online, parents who blog while their kids are at school (or sleeping), and friends who I've met at play dates and Mommy's groups, will be highlighted here over the next few weeks.

I look forward to sharing their stories and giving props to parents who raise happy, healthy, hip kids - one of the most rewarding jobs you could ever have.

I agree, as parents we spend a lot of time celebrating the children's firsts, birthdays etc, but from time to time we should give ourselves a pat on the back.

Parenting comes so fast I guess we for get to look back and see what we have done. Now we're so busy trying to make sure we do things right. But it is all fun and I agree it is important to be a happy parent.

Thanks Leah and Orlund for stopping by. I'm guessing that the two of you are happy, healthy, hip parents yourselves.

Let me know if you want me to include you in the parent profiles.
