What do you see? A riddle, what’s your answer?

Lots of milestones this weekend for the Pruitt household, some good and some of them questionable (these questionable ones are more like learnings on my part, like not to keep your hot cup of coffee near the edge of a table at the park when your toddler may out of nowhere grow several inches on his tippy toes and dump it down the front of himself, he is fine, but it was traumatic for me and for him as I stopped, dropped and rolled him while dumping a gallon of arrowhead water down the front of him, sorry Erin!)  but some of them wouldn’t have happened had I not been able to see things upside down and in the dark.  I will write about this for tomorrow’s post, but today I pose a riddle for you all and without looking it up online (= cheating) please take a moment to post your answer…I will post the answer tonight at 9 pm PST and tomorrow you will understand just how sometimes things are much more clear when you aren’t looking at them at black and white but rather several shades of gray. P.S. there is actually no wrong answer, so don’t worry about that, I did not get all of them!


Now count aloud the F’s in that sentence. Important, count them ONLY ONCE: do not go back and count them again.


Thanks for playing with ‘mynewfavoriteday’!

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon
