My teen daughter just started her senior year of high school, and I find myself constantly wondering where the time went. I am simply amazed at what an awesome kid she is, and admire her gung-ho approach to life. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed just looking at her daily schedule and can't believe how much she can accomplish in just one day. That girl is going to conquer the world some day. I was recently challenged by Yoplait Go Big to write an open letter to my daughter telling her how amazing she is, and I want to it with all of you today because she really is one of a kind! And, you know, because of mommy bragging rights and all that jazz.
You know what? You are a pretty incredible teen! From the day you were born, you have been a constant joy in our lives. You have so many strengths, and the world is a better place because you are in it. You never cease to amaze us, so we want to share just a few things that we admire about you:
Your Adventurous Nature
You are always up for a challenge. Whether it's riding roller coasters, hiking through the mountains, or kayaking, you hardly ever turn down the chance to explore new things and experience new adventures.
Your Love of Family
You are a fabulous big sister! Even though there is a 5 year age gap between you and Allison, you have always treated her as an equal. I love that she can turn to you for advice and I know you will guide her in the right direction. You are always ready to step up to the plate and help her with her homework because, let's face it, mom and dad stink at math.
Your Work Ethic
Not only are you at the top of your class, all while taking advanced placement classes, you still find the time to volunteer and hold down a part time job. Seriously, how do you do it all? You can certainly run circles around us with all that you accomplish in a day, and we are so excited to see your future achievements! We love you and are so proud of the person you have become!
Mom and Dad
Tweens and Teens have a hunger for life, and new Yoplait Go Big is there to help fuel amazing things they do and to help them power through their day. The large grip and rip pouches are filled with delicious fruit yogurt that's bursting with flavor, and Mariah loves snacking on them with her lunch, as an after school snack, during homework, hanging out with her little sister, or any chance she can get!
Go Big is a great snack for tweens and teens because it contains:
• No artificial colors
• No high fructose corn syrup
• Contains real fruit
• Good source of calcium
• Gluten free
• Kosher dairy
Each multi-pack box contains 8 Go Big pouches, in two different flavor varieties: Strawberry/Mixed Berry and Peach Mango/Cherry. You can find them in the dairy case at most major retailers, except for Publix. We found ours at Martin's Supermarkets and Walmart.
