My #MothersPromise

This is a sponsored post with Pampers and Walmart.  All opinions are my own.

I was super excited to get selected to help promote the pampers premium care campaign #motherspromise. This is such a great campaign because it encourages you to make a promise to your little ones and create a craft so that you can keep the promise top of mind.  The craft was a no brainer for me.  One of the first things I do in the morning while feeding my nugget is make some coffee.  This mama doesn't function well until after coffee. If I want to keep something top of mind, the best bet would be to put it on coffee mug.  So that's what I did!

DIY Coffee mug how to:
  • Buy a white mug or light colored mug that marker will show up on
  • Pick your sharpie colors to use
  • Draw your design
  • Let dry for a couple hours
  • Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees
  • Care...Hand-wash instead of dishwasher

My promise to my son is to love him unconditionally and to make sure he appreciates the value of gratitude.  I want him growing up understanding how blessed he is for the life he has.  Never take things for granted.  Always be willing to help those in need or lend a helping hand.  

From the moment Wyatt was born he has had pampers on his bum.  This was the brand of choice at the hospital and as a first time mom, I went with the sensitive line because I had this fear that his bottom would break out in a rash, so why chance it.
  • Pampers premium Care Diapers are available at Walmart and Walmart.com
  • Super affordable
  • Top tier, high quality diaper
  • 5 Star skin care, hypoallergenic, wetness indicator, unique absorb away liner, breathable inside & out, extra absorb channels
I am super thankful for this campaign because of what it stands for.  I challenge you to think of a #MothersPromise and create a way to keep it top of mind.  Feel free to share your promise!

I will just be over here sipping my coffee and hoping he stays Forever Young!

Botox and a Blog

Happy Friday friends!!  Did you notice anything different with your current visit?  We got a facelift!! This has a touch more of a grownup feel, yeah?  That is where the botox part comes in. Get it?  Botox.....facelift....  I did not get botox.  I have no desire to get something injected into my face to make me have a perma grin or surprised look on my face.  No offense to those that do though. However for those that have that resting bitch face, botox might come in handy for ya.  Just a thought.  

Recently I was hard at work sitting down with a customer and i receive this adorable little video from my husband.  Of course he is sending it to me because he is assuming that our child is saying dada as his first words.  I'm in denial and i hear none of the sort.  I suppose you can just add it to one of the firsts of many disappointments to come.  All babies should say mama first.  We carry them and then excrete them.  All the work and no glory.  

How does that saying go?..... When they're little they step on your toes and when they grow up they step on your heart.  Mine of course won't break my heart though, right?
