What a delightful story with cute illustrations & a surprise ending. “What Do I Do Well” uses a simple & easily relatable situation to help children discover their own self-worth and value as a member of the family unit. The main character is a second grader who explores things she does well in order to introduce herself to her new classmates on the first day of school. This charming story was written by Patricia Franklin, a nationally certified teacher recognized for her contributions to the arts & activism toward justice for all in America. Included at the end of the story is a list of questions to help parents engage in discussion with their child/ren. After reading this book, go to the FaceBook page to post your thoughts & something your child has chosen that he does well. www.facebook.com/whatdoidowell.

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Gerber’s 3rd Foods® Lil Bits™ Recipes & although MotherStucker was compensated for writing it, all opinions are 100 percent mine.
My daughters are eaters. Always have been. In fact, when Mini-Me (pictured to the left) finished these photos today, she devoured the “Sweet Potato Apple Carrot & Cinnamon” Gerber’s 3rd Foods® Lil Bits™ Recipes. Clearly she isn’t a baby — but as an experienced Mom — I know great baby food. Great baby food leads to great eating habits for life. My oldest daughter (now 13 years old & 5 ‘ 10″ tall) packs her own school lunch every single school day complete with a healthy snack to enjoy before volleyball practice. Before she could pack her own lunches & snacks, she enjoyed baby food MotherStucker picked for her. She also learned to chew to ease her transition to table food with a little MOM encouragement 😉 That’s exactly why MotherStucker encourages YOU to participate in the #GerberChewU Instant Win Promotion at http://bit.ly/1JP1u9x for YOUR child. It’s a WIN – WIN!

♥Corn & Butternut Squash
♥Butternut Squash & Potato
♥Sweet Potato Apple Carrots & Cinnamon
MotherStucker appreciates that Gerber tested 30,000 spoonfuls of Lil Bits™ Recipes to develop perfectly sized bits to help babies master chewing. 80 taste tests were held with 700+ samples to ensure that Lil Bits™ Recipes had a baby-approved taste. Experts analyzed over 20 hours of video footage & spent 150 hours of analysis & coding on chewing/mashing. Thankfully Gerber is filling a gap in early childhood nutrition with Lil Bits™ Recipes – A new & exciting category changing innovation!
- As older babies develop side to side movement of their tongue they can begin to move small, soft pieces of food to their jawline for mashing, the early skills of chewing.
- Children who have not been exposed to “lumpy food” that require mashing and chewing before 10 months of age have experienced difficulties transitioning to more advanced foods.
- Introducing pureed foods with advanced textures at the Crawler milestone is highly recommended for children to explore and feel multiple textures within the mouth without having to manage numerous separate food components.
MotherStucker knows experience is the best teacher. My Mini-Me & Teenage daughter are growing into amazing young ladies thanks to good choices & great nutrition & I’m excited to continue this motherhood journey with YOU!
