This October, a teenager joined our family. When we sang “Happy Birthday”, I kept thinking to myself, “When did this happen?” How did 13 years flash by?
And then, I started thinking, not only do I have a teen, I have a tween too. Oh dear! This year, one will graduate from fifth grade and one will graduate from eighth grade. So many great things will happen and I want to let them know how special they both are, so here it goes:
Dear Teen and Tween,
You are now 13 and almost 11
Both of you are a special gift from heaven
I have always told you to be kind
When a problem arises, I know you use your mind
Other parents say that you both are a delight
This makes my heart flutter with all its might
I know that there are times that life will be rough
Have courage and faith because I know you can be tough
Always do your best, I know you can
Take risks, take chances, I’ll always be your biggest fan.
From sports to art to being a friend
I know I can count on your both til the end
Middle School and High School are coming your way
I know your graduation will be a very special day.
A word of advice I want to leave with you
GO BIG – You might say what exactly do you mean?
GO BIG with your thoughts
Go BIG with your deeds
GO BIG with your Kindness
GO BIG with your love for family
GO BIG with your friends
Don’t limit yourself, anything is possible!
GO BIG with your love and all will come true!
I hope this letter lets them know how amazing I think they both are. Not only do I think my tween and teen are amazing, Yoplait thinks that Teens are Amazing too.
I recently purchase the new Go Big. It is a large yogurt pouch designed specifically with teens in mind.
The Go Big pouch is like nothing you’ve seen before, just grip & rip! Very easy, great for on-the-go! Our calendar is super busy. I bet yours is too.
I bet your teen is amazing too. Why not let Go Big spotlight that amazingness?
For a chance to win the spotlight for your teen, go to the Go Big Amazing Teens contest page and share how your teen inspires you.
Go Big will select three teens with amazing stories and give them a platform to show the world! For more information, full contest rules can be found on the Go Big Facebook Page.
Do you know a teen that you would nominate?
