We celebrated a big milestone this summer – our 10th wedding anniversary. But as we get older, milestones are few and far between. We’ve hit most of them (landing our dream jobs, getting married, having a babies). But kids, on the other hand, have a lot worth celebrating. From bringing home their first pet to going to their first high school dance (hold me when that happens), frame-worthy moments go far beyond the baby books.
In recognition of “mini milestones,” we love this list Netflix compiled a list of movies and TV episodes that highlight a variety of these achievements. Whatever “firsts” your family is celebrating this fall, Netflix can relate.

Mini milestones deserve a mini reward, like the sweet-salty combo of chocolate-covered pretzels. Make them extra special by rolling pretzels in your kids’ favorite treats – from Oreo dust and coconut to chopped nuts and sprinkles, the sky’s the limit. My kids made these at their camp this summer and couldn’t stop talking about them. Click here to learn how to make your own.
