The other day while I was getting Fern “un-stuck” from the spot under the rocking chair in her room where she crawls approximately 18,000 times a day, I started thinking…babies have a whole lot of “problems” that are unique to them…kind of like “first world problems”, but instead they’re “baby problems”.
If I were to have a conversation about this with a friend, it might go a little something like this:
“Fern got stuck under the rocking chair for the 18,000th time…baby problems.” Or maybe, “Fern smells like a loaf of garlic bread thanks to her mullein garlic ear drops…baby problems.” Or even, “My baby is pissed because I didn’t pick her spoon up off the ground after the 13th time she threw it…baby problems.”
Well, I thought it might be fun to do an Instagram photo challenge (like the “Parenting For Real” Photo Challenge I hosted awhile back) all about baby problems and I’d love for you to join in and I’ll choose my favorite photos to post here on Babble!
Find out the challenge details after the jump!
The challenge starts tomorrow (Monday, 11/12) and the goal is to post your “baby problems” all throughout the week (Monday 11/12 until Sunday 11/18) and then I’ll choose my favorites to share here on Monday, November 19th!
To join in, all you have to do is:
*Upload your photos to Instagram
*Use the hashtag #babyproblems with each of your photos
*Make sure to tag me (@thelittlethingswedo) so I see your photos – I don’t want to miss any of them!
This was a really fun way to connect with other Instagram parents during the last photo challenge, so I look forward to more of the same this time around and I hope you’ll join me!
