A Letter to my Teen Son #YOPLAITGOBIG 

For those that know me I have kids from toddler to teenager and I am in my early thirties. Most people don’t believe me I have a teenager but I do. He is my baby. My chubby chunk a monk and now he is 14. Its hard to believe that he has been in my life for 14 years or that I haven’t sent him to military school by now. He is just as stubborn as I ever was and we clash often. I am happy he has a strong will though because this world will try to break those that don’t. He is awesome and awesome kids should be told just how awesome they are. Yoplait Go Big challenged us to write a letter to our tweens or teens to tell them how proud we are of them.


Dear Matthew,

I have always been so proud of you. I love you and you will always be my baby

even though you are now a teenager. From the moment you were born, to your first picture,

the first time mawmaw held you, the first time pawpaw held you, your first foods other than breastmilk, and so many more memories.

You always rocked picture days and you were my little piggy.

You loved staying at Memaws just as much as I did and you loved my best friend Shane just like me.

You had to face a lot in your life and we have lost so many family members in such a short period of time.

Yet you have always been a happy, smiling kid who loves his siblings, loves his daddy, loves holidays, and just loves life.

You have an amazing voice and I think you will make it big in whatever you choose to do in life whether it be a mechanic, doctor, lawyer, IT professional.

Go Big!


My teenager is taking technology classes now because he wants to go into IT like his grandparents but the other day he told me he wanted to work on computer graphics. He isn’t sure what he wants to do in life but I know he will rock whatever that is. He always does. Even when its being bad. He throws it out of the park on everything he does especially his singing and social justice. He is always starting funds and clubs for people he feels are getting the short end of the stick.



I love how Yoplait Go Big has yogurt pouches that are designed for older kids. My son wanted both packs my store had but sadly they didnt have the other variety pack. They only had the strawberry and the Peach-Mango/Cherry variety pack. He wanted to try the Mixed Berry type as well. They are made with just the right amount of sweetness and real fruit. He also loves the large gip and rip pouch style of the new Go Big!

  1. I am going to have to try getting some of these Yoplait new Go Big Bars. They look delicious. I will look for them in the store!
