This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Tony’s Pizza, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #tonyspizzeria http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV.
I have some wonderful news! My son has finally turned a corner when it comes to his eating habits! After months of therapy, and a lot of tears on both our parts, my little guy is sitting down and eating the same food that we are. After the first week this happened I burst into uncontrollable tears. It was like all the stress of dealing with a son who was labeled a failure to thrive and who refused to eat just came bursting out. Some nights are a little bit more difficult than others, but overall things are a lot better.
We wanted to celebrate his remarkable achievement of eating dinner with his family for a month with a fun game night and his choice of dinner. Guess what he chose? His favorite meal of all, pizza! I just downloaded a coupon (while supplies last) for 75¢ off on any 2 TONY’S® multi-serve pizzas so we headed on over to our local Walmart to pick up a couple for our family game night.
My husband just taught Jonah how to play “Go Fish” with his Lightning McQueen playing cards. This is his game of choice and so I obliged when he asked if we could play. After his little sister went to bed, we shuffled the cards and played a few rounds while the pizza was cooking.
Another of our favorite games to play as a family is UNO Moo, a preschool version of the card game. I love this game because it teaches young children their colors, and in our case how to be a good winner or loser. This is a great game for those nights when you don’t have a lot of time on your hands. You can play a quick game in a couple of minutes.
The star of our game/pizza night was the Tony’s pizza. We love Tony’s Pizza, it is affordable and delicious. A crispy crust, topped with real cheese and sauce that is made from real, flavorful tomatoes, what more could you ask for? The size of the pizzas make it perfect for families. One was the perfect size for the kids (in their choice of pepperoni) and my husband and I got to pick the one that we felt like eating (bring on the meat-trio).
We love having game nights and movie nights to celebrate the little things. My little man felt like a million bucks when we were playing games and eating our pizza. He even wanted to take a selfie of the two of us eating our Tony’s pizza:
I have learned somewhere along the way that we need to celebrate the little things in life. Eating delicious pizza and playing games is one way I can make my son feel special.
