Giveaway 09: Modern Baby Owl with Numbers

It’s almost mid month but let’s get going with this month’s giveaway!

My daughter Leela turned 3 in March and I took her to see a dentist few weeks ago for the first time. It was a casual visit to get used to the dentist environment. Sit on the chair, open her mouth, get familiar with equipment etc. etc. As far as we can tell she had no cavities. Woohoo! On the way out, Leela got some small toys and a balloon. She was happy. Then the front desk person told us that there is a contest. If you guessed how many marbles are in a jar, (they were mixed with floss and other plastic toys)  and you are correct or closest you win a stuffed animal. So I looked at how much space 10 marbles take up and guessed a number. Then I thought it was ridiculously large number, so I tore that piece of paper and guessed again with slightly smaller number and dropped the paper in the box. Well, I got a call from the dentist office yesterday and Leela won the stuffed animal contest! which of course means I won the contest because MY guess was the closest. For some reason, this made me feel extremely happy and proud. I told my husband when he got back, he wasn’t too impressed with it. (“oh that’s great honey! ..by the way..”) I told Leela she won a stuffed animal, but she was not impressed at all, she’s just too young to get the whole concept. I’m a bit disappointed that I cannot share my excitement of my tiny proud moment with everybody, so I decided that this is what I am going to talk about, and this is what you all have to share in order to win this month’s giveaway.

In order to win the giveaway, answer this question: What was your tiny proud moment?
And leave your answer in the comment section below. This time I am going to say it’s optional to leave your email or not. Either way your emails will not be public and only used to reach you if you win the giveaway. If you did not leave your email address then you have to contact me if you win after winner’s announcement. The giveaway will be open until April 30th and the winner will be announced on May 1st.

Thanks for playing!

    a little while ago my 2 and a half year old daughter was playing with a couple kids that are close to her age and they were being kind of mean. one snatched a book from her hands and another was pushing and being rough. So i was on my way across the room to help when i heard her little voice repeating our rules for at home “hey you guys lets share the book” and “oh no pushing isn’t nice”.
    no one else seemed to think this was significant, but i was so proud.

    Lovely giveaway! I’m very bad at guessing numbers, so good job :) ! I just realized my proud moment; I’m proud of myself for after some hard work, being able to quit my medication and staying positive at the same time :) . <3 Nikki

    My “tiny” moment was when a museum called me to ask me if I’ll be interested to have a photo of my crochet robot in their catalog of an exhibition about robots!

    I was so proud of myself when I set up my little business on Etsy! This from someone who didn’t know beans about such a thing! I have a funny dentist story about my kids…we gave them $5.00 if they didn’t have any cavities when they went for their check-up. Daughter came out…no cavities. Son came out…no cavities. Youngest son went in and a few minutes later the dentist came out into the waiting room and shut the door. He was laughing as he said said “Your son just told me if I said he had no cavities, he would give me $2.50!” I guess my son thought the chances were slim that they would all have no cavities and he was taking no chances but believe it or not, he didn’t have any cavities either.

    Hmmm…. seems I have a lot of ‘tiny proud’ moments lol!
    Perhaps the most recent was completely re-organizing our attic. Things are SO much easier to get to & organized- lots of new, efficient bins. Floor space practically tripled & I got rid of things we don’t need. It was also amazing I did it alone in one night & moved quite a few heavy things myself while pregnant. I’d planned on that being a task my husband would help with, but he obviously didn’t realize that since he acted like it was no big accomplishment and on par with doing the laundry. lol!

    I think I have a little proud moment every time I learn to make a new recipe. I never learned how to cook from scratch until we moved overseas and it always makes me so happy when I can make something that we might otherwise miss from a favorite restaurant back home!

    Since becoming a mother 17 months I’ve tried vey hard to be the Martha Stewart type of Mumma like my Mum, Grandma and Nan and alot of these amazing WAHMs that I follow through their blogs…I unfortunately still suck at being one of those Mumma’s but I had a wee bit of a triumph the other week when I decided I was going to try and sew my daughters button back onto her cardigan…and would you believe a week on the button is still holding fast (even if it be by only a thread :) )

    I probably have a million tiny proud moments everyday. No one is quite as enthralled with my accomplishments as I am. Yesterday’s was knowing the last names of the two Dicks who played Darren on Bewitched in an internet quiz.

    My tiny proud moment of today was realising that I don’t have to break my new year’s resolution of only buying what I need or buying secondhand in order to redecorate, but I can actually make a lot of stuff myself from things we have around the house.

    Love this clock…ah-dorable!

    I guess my tiny proud moment is anytime I overhear my son say “Yes, please” and “Thank you” without being prodded. I’m trying my hardest to drill manners into that little gentleman, so when I see it working…I beam!

    My tiny proud moment was when I succedded in having a girl after 3 (yes, three)boys!!! It wasn’t easy convincing my dear husband it will work this time…it took me 2.5 years to ask nicely, beg,threat etc till he gave in completely.Although she prefers to be a boy :(
    needless to say she is her daddy’s princess….I am sooooo proud of myselg for not giving up!

    Melissa says:

    I am bursting with tiny proud moments as my daughter has become such a lovely young lady. She graduates high school in June and will be attending a small (out of our state) women’s college in the fall. I am so proud of her for knowing herself well enough to find the “right” place, and once found following through with her decision even though it means leaving a boyfriend and many other friends behind. She is bright, articulate, quirky and full of fun and she overwhelms me with pride.

    I am hopeful that my pride in my daughter will qualify me for this giveaway, even though it is not exactly a “tiny moment” as requested, cause that clock would look SUPER in her new dorm room! Thanks for the chance. ;-)

    My most recent tiny proud moment was winning our office’s Placement of The Week prize. It’s awarded to the best PR media placement of the week. I’m the office manager and don’t usually participate, but I did my first round of pro bono media pitching surrounding a non-profit event recently. It felt good to be recognized!

    My tiny proud moment was having dinner on the table, toddler happy and the house clean as my husband walked through the door, so we could go for a walk after he finished work yesterday! A tiny moment indeed but I felt proud on the inside!

    Gorgeous clock and competition!!
    Of all my tiny proud moments the one that comes to mind was just the other day when I wasn’t feeling well (6 months pregnant.)My daughter rubbed my back and said ‘It’s ok mummy, bubby coming soon, then happy’

    Blythe says:

    My tiny proud moment happened just this morning when I dropped my children at kindy. We walked in to my little guy’s room (he’s 2 next month!)and straight away a sweet little girl came running over. She was shouting his name over and over again, kissing his legs and laughing. She was so excited to see him, and he was thrilled to see her, he was giggling away. As soon as I set him down on the floor was all shy and put his head between my legs. But that was my proud moment, knowing my tiny little man has a sweet little friend, who loves him!

    Julia says:

    I have many of those tiny proud moments, but I feel so proud of my 2 year old son when he’s ready to go to bed and gives me and his dad a kiss each, then climbs into bed and says “good night” (and expects us to leave so he can fall asleep). He does this without us asking for it, so that makes it extra nice.

    Fiona says:

    Thanks for the chance to win- the clock is gorgeous. My tiny proud moment happened only today when my 2.5yo son helped to feed his younger brother (15mth) his lunch instead of mucking up. I was so pleased that my efforts to help him become more conscientious of his little brother have finally paid off- oh, until tomorrow! Who knows! Let’s take these little proud moments and hold on to them. xx

    Michelle says:

    The one that comes to mind to me is after teaching myself how to crochet I just finished a huge single bed blanket for my sons bed. I promised it would be on his bed when he got home from his school camp and even though that would only give one month to do it, I did!! hey for me!

    Kate says:

    Proud moment? Being a nice mommy today after very little sleep because of a sick baby girl in the night. It’s 9:30 am and I’m already ready to go to bed for the day… but instead I’ll take care of my 3 yr old and my sicky.

    Three and a half years ago I moved to the States and had no friends, no family and no job. I made very good friends with cake. Cake and I did everything together. Cake made me happy. About 6 months later I found a job, made new friends, still miss my family and started to make my house a home. I started on January 10th of this year on a new life regime and have lost 24 LBS todate. Cake and I are still on speaking terms, but it’s more of an affair than a friendship. I haven’t cured cancer or saved the world, but it’s my victory and I’m proud.

    I was proud of my two year old last night. We sing songs before bedtime and as she tried to sing along with me she would take breaks to kiss on her daddy! Love that sweet little girl!

    My tiny proud moment is when my 2 year old son asks with concern “What happened Mama?” when I give a shriek when I’ve knocked myself against something.

    Clea says:

    My tiny proud moment? Sounds silly but my little girl started drinking from a “big” cup today. Made my heart melt to see her little hands gripping that plastic and whooping with joy when she didn’t spill it all over herself for once.
    Love that owl clock. Big time.

    My proudest moments come from my niece. My sister passed away a few years ago, and I am always amazed at how grown-up and strong-willed my niece is at the age of 6. My sister would be so proud.

    My most recent tiny proud moment was being able to make glazed carrots from the CIA cookbook last night. I am not a proficient cook and I find recipes without extremely exact measurements particularly troublesome. The glazed carrot recipe involved sugar, salt, pepper and chicken stock – all of which did not include any measurements at all (add as much sugar as needed???). It turned out great!

    Love this giveaway!!

    My tiny proud moment today…I just did my first yoga class…I’ve always wanted to try it out, but was fearful I’d fall flat on my face and was too silly to go by myself. I finally conquered the fear and had SO much fun. I enjoyed it immensely and cannot wait to go back…just goes to show, don’t let anything hold you back…as the rewards are far greater then the little (silly) fears (esp in this case).

    I recently started a new job. I have hardly any responsibilities and sometimes feel like everyone I work with thinks I am a joke because I have no experience. A few weeks ago there was a contest on how the company could save money and be more cost efficent. I racked my brain for all the ideas I could.

    I sent in my entry and a week later was informed that I won! Little ole me won the contest. I was so excited! Maybe now they will think I have something worth listening to.

    this clock makes me swoon.

    my job is stressful and full of customer service calls that may involve the other party screaming or crying. last week i had an especially difficult woman on the phone whom i talked down and had laughing by the end of the call. i got a thank-you card at work today – a first in my five years at the job. a very proud tiny moment.

    My husband and I both work full time and usually split pickup/drop off for our two children. This Friday we decided to leave early and go pick them up together. My daughter just turned two and she was so thrilled that we and her big brother came to get her all together. In the car on the way home she shouted, “I’m happy!” If that isn’t the definition of everything I have ever hoped for, I don’t know what is.

    my baby points to my face asking what is what when I rock her, and I tell her: hair, nose, eye etc…

    It finally clicked with her when I asked her where her body parts were and she just started pointing at the right ones when she wouldn’t/couldn’t before!

    Kate says:

    My most recent “tiny proud” moment was when I finally finished repainting the second floor of my house. I was in-between jobs and feeling really low, so it was incredibly gratifying to make use of that time – even if my boyfriend didn’t really care that much about the color change (I painted over a really dark blue with an off-white).

    The whole room is lighter, airier, and I know the amount of work that went into it. The cherry on the sundae would be the opportunity to hang that amazing clock on one of the freshly painted walls! ;)

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Just today I heard a song on the radio and named it after only the first few notes. That’s really tiny, but it made me happy. :)

    Michelle says:

    At the Tutankhamun exhibition, my son asked, “why is his Mummy there?” after hearing another visitor discuss the mummified body as a “Mummy”. I told my Son about the wrappings around a body being know as a “Mummy” and that they are not referring to his actual Mother. My Son said something to this effect…”Like when you wrap me up tight with my quilt when I’m not well to keep me warm.” I’m proud my son thinks of my protective and loving actions as synonymous with being a Mummy like protective bandaging on a Mummified body.

    I’m not a very crafty person, so when I made an origami mobile to hang over Owen’s crib, I was pretty ecstatic… sending pictures to family and friends, posting it on Facebook, expecting my husband to come into the nursery and stare at it with me for 20 minutes every day…

    No one really cared as much as I did, but to me it was one small way for me to let Owen know that I love him already and am getting everything ready for his arrival. Still waiting… he’ll probably never remember that mobile either, but it’s a big deal to me.

    Most recent tiny moment? This will seem so sad to some people, lol. But I’m on the rough draft of the next chapter of my thesis, and just finished it last night. When I ran spell check, it didn’t find a single word. I was totally impressed with myself. Tee hee!

    Well I’d have to say just recently we took our first son Nathan to the pediatrician when he was around 7 weeks old for a general check up and he said after giving us a lot of newborn tips and advice – ‘If Nathan was a horse, I’d would bet on him to be a winner’. Nice that this doc, who was with our boy for only about 15 minutes could tell what a champion he was already at 7 weeks! ;)

    My tiny proud moment was hitting the two-mile mark last week on the treadmill. I just started running for the first time in my life a few weeks ago, and I never thought I could ever run two miles!

    I was going to school for graphic design last year when my brother passed away. I ended up having to leave school and put college on hold for a while. I was really disappointed, so I decided to try and teach myself some things. Every time I “get” a new trick or technique I feel so proud of myself. Its exciting to do things on my own and feel like I’ve really accomplished something! :)

    My tiny proud moment was this week when I installed a new dishwasher! My daughter helped as her hands were small enough to pull the hoses through the hole into the cupboard under the sink. We both stood and watched as we tested the first cycle. I catch myself looking at it and thinking how much I love my new dishwasher!

    We planted a cherry tree last year and now it has 3 tiny cherries. I feel very proud to have succeeded in not killing it and even getting 3 cherries that I have gone around telling all sorts of people (all of whom probably think I am insane for bragging about my wondrous crop).

    Tiny proud moment = any time I cook something new and my husband tells me this should become a stable in our dinner rotation. I feel so proud!

    I also feel proud of the little one heading our way in August. This clock would be *perfect* in his nursery. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    My proud moment was having a classmate ask me when I would start teaching my craft. It has taken me quite a while to see that my work is actually good enough to have someone else want to emulate it.

    My tiny proud moment was when my husband declined an order of radish cake (his favorite) when we went for dim sum last week. I asked him why and he said that the one I make at home is better. That means I have now perfected my mother/ grandmother’s radish cake recipe, made from scratch.

    my tiniest proud moment was this weekend when my son (finally) called me mama. my little boy has a rare brain disease called tuberous sclerosis that causes seizures, tumors to form throughout the body’s organs and severe developmental delays. in his three years of life, he’s never been able to say mama due to severe impairments to his speech and cognitive function. but as a mother, i’ve been determined to help him understand what mama means. this weekend he looked into my eyes, touched my cheek and said mama. something so many mothers take for granted = a tiny, beautiful moment of pride for me.

    My most recent proud moment is right now. Looking at pretty things on the internet because all the laundry is folded AND the dishes are done. Sadly, this might be a first, too!

    My 2 year old likes to watch the short teletubbies theme song on YouTube if I am ever naughty enough to sit down at the computer while he and his brother are up and around. My darling 4 year old asked why the teletubbies didn’t talk properly, so I told him they are just young, mostly 1 and 2, to which he asked well why do they live by themselves?

    My tiny proud moment was teaching myself to quilt in the endless empty hours with a newborn, producing my first quilt from scraps for my little baby girl and it being chosen and published in a quilting magazine! It was also chosen for the July pinup in the magazine’s annual calendar! Two (three counting the actual quilt) special items that I have secreted away to show my daughter one day. I just hope she’ll be just as proud as her mummy…. :)

    I would say my little proud moment happened when my 6 year old told me “it’s ok mummy…I still love you even when you make mistakes”.

    proud(est) moment to date: snagging my husband for keeps. he is the kindest, most generous and loving man I have ever met. I am proud to be his wife.

    Staying positive while my newborn son is in the NICU. It helps to have a supportive husband and sweet daughter to keep my mind occupied. I love the clock and it would be perfect in Spencer’s nursery.

    I would have to say I have tiny proud moments daily! With 3 girls there is always a moment one of them makes me proud. The appreciation for the small things has made me most proud today.

    Tiny proud moment today goes to my five-year-old son. He caught a butterfly in the backyard and brought it in the house. He was amazed, absolutely overwhelmed that he caught it. He was VERY proud of himself. He asked to keep it and we agreed as long as we released it later. The day went by and it was time to release the butterfly that he kept by his side all day. He began to cry, he told us how beautiful it was and he wanted to keep it. We explained why we couldn’t keep him and as tears ran down his face, he opened the container and his beloved butterfly flew away. Is this tiny…yes. Am I am proud…VERY. :)

    My tiny proud moment is when I was inside the hospital ward to see my wife give birth to my baby girl. That is the proudest moment as a father and to feel how hard is my wife to give birth and how a little star arrival in this great world. My wife feel Owl is one of the animal that can bring her luck and I hope that this can bring me luck to win the clock that can give this as a gift to my wife and my little baby.
