Happy New Year 2011 from Two Peds in a Pod

We know the first time your child rides a two wheel bike or loses a tooth is a momentous occasion. In honor of January first, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite, lesser known, firsts. Have we missed any of your favorites? Please add to this list.


First time he tries peas


First time she walks on sand or grass in bare feet


First time he sees snow


First time she explains to you how to work your computer


First time she sleeps through the night (if ever)


First he calls grandpa on the telephone


First poop in potty- remember saving it to show your spouse?


First time she buckles herself into the car, with no help from you


First time she sleeps over someone else’s house


First time he gives you a handmade gift


First time finding the restroom by himself in a restaurant, and you allow him to “got it alone”


First time you leave her home alone to babysit herself


First time he is too old to qualify for the restaurant’s kids menu


First time she shaves her legs or first time he shaves his face


First time your teen drives herself to a sports practice


First day your youngest starts kindergarten



We wish you a year filled with many successful “firsts.”
