Strong & Happy!

This is my daughters picture, (she's 8) she is 'Happy and Strong' as a girl who CAN beat boys! In this picture, she's stronger than a boy (who is a Prince, and she's a Princess) (She hates when someone says "You run like a girl" because she doesn't see what girls can't do, that boys can. Which I love, she thought this up on her own, and said "Mom, I'm just as strong as boys, so I'll be a princess, but a princess who is stronger than a boy. Maybe people will think, 'Wow - shes as strong as a girl" <-- her words. :D)



This is from a contest posted by Janice, of 5 Minutes for Mom (a fantastic site that caters to a lot of different things, tips, advice, they have 2 stores) But the contest is here "Strong and Happy" drawing contest!
Have your kids (but you can only enter one picture) draw what makes them 'strong and happy', then go to 5 Minutes for Mom and add your site to the link at the bottom, make sure you blog about what you're doing so other Moms and Dads can get involved too! This is possible thanks to Yoplait, they're sponsoring the contest - and entries are accepted for 2 more weeks, so get crayon-ing!
