As a parent, you’re constantly monitoring your child’s every move. It’s natural.
Your baby said a two-syllable word? Good thing you had your smartphone nearby to record that precious moment. Your little one drew a miniature Mona Lisa on the wall? Hello, Instagram! Capture your baby’s artistic skills at a young age! Just make sure you snap a pic before running to grab a Better Life cleaner from the cabinet. Your 11-month-old took two steps in the living room? Tweet the play-by-play! Your toddler has grown from cloth diapers to training pants? Post it on Facebook, where, if you’re like me, you enjoy posting major life events to your timeline.
Each day, your kids are growing and continuously learning new things. And, as much as you’d like, you won’t be able to experience every little thing your child will accomplish.
If you miss your baby giggling in the other room or humming a song during nap time, don’t fret. Just know that you are raising a genius because your child is learning about the world – on their own.
For this week’s giveaway, we want to know how you’re raising a genius and give you everything you need to tell the world (outside of social media). Three people will win a bumGenius 4.0 cloth diaper in a Genius Series print of their choice (Albert, Lovelace, Irwin, Maathai) and an “I’m a Genius Travel Mug.”
