Facing Life’s Challenges Like a Boss, Norm of the North, Giveaway, #‎BreakTheNorm‬, ‪#‎IC‬, ad

My family has been so excited about Norm of the North since we first saw the Norm of the North trailer. We are not the only ones that are looking forward to seeing Norm of the North (in theaters starting January 15, 2016). This big-hearted, and talkative polar bear from the Arctic has been winning hearts all across the world. A little introduction to the movie might be in order. Norm of the North leaves the Arctic behind, along with his sidekicks, to venture to NYC. They are headed to the Big Apple. Norm is on a mission to prevent his beloved home from being overtaken by developers. What a huge challenge this lovable bear has gotten himself into but I’m happy to say he faces it like a boss. It’s not always easy to face challenges and I think he’s very brave to do so. Norm of the North encourages kids to face new challenges of their own.

Alyssa and Abigail decided recently that they wanted to start taking gymnastic classes. It was a bit scary for them but we all encouraged them to try it. In the beginning they were shy about meeting complete strangers and being front and center with kids they didn’t know. Pretty soon, they quit being afraid of making mistakes or falling in front of everyone and they embraced this new challenge LIKE A BOSS! They’ve been moved up twice in the short time that they’ve been taking lessons and I’ve since bought them gymnastic equipment so they can practice at home. I am so proud of them for doing what they wanted to do even though it was something they had never done before. They now live and breathe gymnastics and I’m thrilled for them. The girls have moved beyond their comfort zone and I am sure that they are starting to realize that life’s greatest rewards often stem from taking chances. I’ve faced challenges myself that required me to move beyond my comfort zone and I bet you can think of some challenges yourself that you weren’t too sure about in the beginning.

Let’s shake things up just a bit. Gather the kids around and get out of those chairs…

We received some goodies from Lionsgate featuring Norm of the North which you can see below. The girls want to add to their memorabilia and I’m sure we will as we find more Norm of the North products.
