3 Activities to Test Your Parenting Skills

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fisher-Price . All opinions are 100% mine.

I’ll admit it – before becoming a parent, I judged other parents. I would often find myself thinking things such as “I would NEVER let my child…” or “As a mom I will NEVER….” Fast forward a few years and I often find myself letting my kids get away with just about anything (within reason). Sometimes saying “yes” just helps avoid unnecessary tension in my home. Yes, every trip to the store with my son is made in his monster rain-boots and clothes of choice (usually pajama shirts and shorts). Long story short, I will never judge another parent again. Think you have what it takes to be a parent? Test your parenting skills with these 3 activities.

3 Activities to Test Your Parenting Skills

1. Make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with one hand. Life with kids means one thing – learning how to accomplish your daily tasks using just one hand. This often means that I have to hold my baby girl with one arm while I make lunch for my toddler son.


2. Change a diaper in 10 seconds. Trust me, with a squirmy little baby, it’s harder than it sounds. However, as a parent, you have little time and a lot to accomplish so it’s important to get the job done quickly.

3. Set up a play yard. With most play yards, this can be a daunting and frustrating task. However, with Fisher Price’s Night & Day Play Yard, setting up a play yard has never been easier.

My friend wanted to see if she possessed some mad parenting skills. Completing the activities above, she reports that thanks to Fisher-Price”s Night & Day Play Yard, setting up the play yard was by far the easiest task.

Perfect for lounging, playing, and sleeping, Fisher Price’s Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard is perfect for home and on-the-go. Its light weight (16 lbs) design and easy assembly make this the best play yard I’ve ever owned. Not only does this play yard offer a comfortable night’s rest, but I absolutely love having a safe designated area for my kids to play. Most play times end up looking like this (yes, my son loves putting my daughter’s bow over her eyes).

Not to mention, I love that the bottom is super close to the ground. This way, I don’t have to worry about my son climbing out in the middle of the night. What more could you ask for in a play yard?

Fisher Price’s Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard is available exclusively for Purchase at Walmart.

This is awesome and so hilariously true! Two years into twins and I can safely say I have mastered them all!

You get pretty good at changing diapers when you have a little one. It can be so tricky when they will not stay still.

I remember the days of one handed sandwich making. This looks like a great play pen. I like how easy it is to set up.

I think that diaper changing should be an Olympic sport. Really, it should. Every mother on the planet does it at some point, an you have to do it in record fashion in order to get other stuff done.

I've also mastered the art of living with one arm! A squirmy baby can basically turn you into an invalid!
