A Minute In History: 1-1-11 11:11

 Duke University Students ~ Class of 2011

Today, whatever you are doing, wherever you are, grab your camera and snap a picture at 11:11 (your time). Take the picture of whoever or whatever is in front of you, of yourself, your location, your passion, your activity - anything that captures this minute in history. Upload it to the peaceful parenting Facebook page, or email it to us (peacefulparents{at}gmail.com). We'll collect and display the images in a gallery here for a keepsake glance at one minute in history among moms and dads and kids and babies and the lives we are living as we dive into the second decade of the 21st century.

Update: we received so many "First Milk" photos that this album will be a joint venture - a look into the lives of peaceful parenting moms, dads, and their little ones on the first day of this new year - 1-1-11 - and most of them captured at 11:11! :)

Marie-Pier's photo, taken at Rimouski (Quebec, Canada) at 11:11. "It's our first pankakes of the new year. You can see my 9 months daughter eating by herself her pieces of pankake (with maple sirup). I've always practice babyled feeding with Elizabeth :-) 
No stress, mommy's milk is always the first choice meal!"
