Thank you to Pampers Premium Care for inspiring today's discussion.We make a LOT of promises as mothers don't we? Earlier this week I talked about my own experience becoming a mother. On a daily basis, I feel like I make a lot of promises…..to myself and to Lydia…..simple ways I can make her life better.
Next week, I'll be (gulp) hosting my very first twitter party. I'm teaming up with some other amazing moms and Pampers to talk about our promises as mothers. We will be sharing our commitments to ourselves and our little ones AND giving away some pretty amazing prizes that will help YOU fulfill your promises to your little one.So what promises am I making to my little one? I promise to teach her to love herself. As women, I feel like we leave childhood filled with self doubt. From body image to career choices, I see the 5th grade girls at the school where I am a teacher leave with less confidence than they entered with as kindergartners. My most important promise to my little lady? To teach her to love her strengths and accept her flaws. To teach her to love the strong women in her life, and be a wonderful friend to the girls in her circle. To teach her to be kind, graceful, and strong. If my little girl can leave elementary school with at least half the confidence she has right now…..I'll feel like I've fulfilled my promise. That smile when she sees herself in the mirror? Her happy statement that “I look beautiful today”…..let's keep THAT. And let's encourage her to be beautiful on the inside too.What else do I promise? To take care of her health and well being. From feeding her healthy meals to using the best baby care products….I want to insure that Lydia is happy, healthy, and comfortable. Doesn't every mother want that?One of the simplest ways I'm doing THAT? By using Pampers Premium Care diapers I'm using a product I trust. I trust that Lydia will be kept dry and comfortable, and will be surrounded by materials that are safe for baby skin. Pampers Premium Care diapers are cost effective, easy to use and readily available (they're on sale at your local Walmart).
So, the twitter party details! (if you've never attended one, they're a BLAST):
