This contest is over. Congratulations to our winner: lilypony!

Here's the first contest in our Month of Mom, our month-long celebration of moms: Four ticket vouchers to Sesame Street Live "Elmo's Super Heroes" at the PNC Arena!

Sesame Street Live makes annual stops here in Raleigh at the arena (formerly the RBC Center) and is hugely popular with parents of young children. It's here from June 1 to June 3. Tickets start at $12 a piece. Click here for more information about the show.

In this year's show, Super Grover has lost his super-ness and Sesame Street needs a hero! Never fear, the fabulous five Super Heroes are here -- featuring Elmo as Captain Fuzzy! Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and all their friends are on a quest to put the “super” back in Super Grover.

There's singing and dancing and lessons about healthy habits like exercise, rest, nutritious food and good hygiene.

I have four ticket vouchers to the show, which are good for any performance at the PNC Arena.

How do you enter to win? One or both of the following:

1. Follow @WRALmoms on Twitter and tweet once about the contest.

2. Answer the following question in the comments below: Do you struggle to get your kids outside, sleep through the night, brush their teeth or eat healthy food? What healthy habit has been the hardest to teach your kids?

This contest ends at noon, May 11. One winner will be picked at random from all entries. The winner's user name or Twitter name will be posted on this post by 9 p.m. May 11 and an email or message will be sent to the winner, if possible. The winner must respond by 5 p.m. May 15 or a runner-up will be selected. Good luck!

    Brushing his teeth and learning to spit the toothpaste out instead of eating it.

    Brushing teeth!!

  • dragonflysong1 May 11, 2012

    Getting my daughter to brush her all her teeth, not just a few swipes on one side.

    Healthy eating for sure. My kids are ridiculously vegetable-averse (ironic, since we're a vegetarian family...). They eat tons of fresh fruit, but they won't eat veggies. I try to sneak them in when I can, keep offering, and try not to freak out about the wasted food, sigh.

    the struggle right now is brushing teeth and eating veggies for 1 year old..for 3 1/2 it's eating healthy

    I struggle most with getting my 3 1/2 year old daughter to eat her veges. She loves meats, pastas, rice and fruit. She keeps telling me that she needs to eat her veges to get big and strong, but she does not follow through with that yet. One day.....

    I will def. say sleeping through the night, and he is 4yrs old. He is a picky eater but at least he eats healthy.

  • stellasmama May 8, 2012

    My daughter eats her veggies and loves them! The only "struggle" right now is sleeping, she cant quite stay asleep as long as I want her too! Brushing her teeth is also fun, she loves to smile big and show her teeth off!

    It depends on what day it is and what is going on. I think that all families struggle with each of these issues at one point or another. The important thing is to focus on the overall picture. We certainly practice and instill all of the items mentioned above, but as long as the kids are healthy overall I try not to sweat it too much if there is a night where a vegetable is not eaten or teeth are not brushed as long as usual, etc. Overall, I have great kids who are well behaved and who do what they are supposed to :)
