Before I had children so many people were quick to tell me that life would never be the same again. Sometimes those comments were negative and other times they were meant positively. Well, I can tell you that being a mother has been the most rewarding gift that life has ever given me. Is it a job? Of course, but it is a job that I would never in my life think of having a do-over on. The greatest gift I could have ever received this past Mother’s Day was the fact that I could celebrate it with these two cuties! What a blessing it is to be the mom to two these two handsome gentlemen.
Pampers has always been so wonderful to celebrate babies as well as the people who take care of the babies. I was so thrilled to be a part of the latest Pampers Mission which was all about taking care of a brand new mom. While I never had the opportunity to meet this mom, I was able to give a very generous donation to a brand new mom in our local NICU. This particular mom just had a sweet little baby that has several different medical problems. When you have a baby in the NICU all of life pretty much stops. You really just want to be with your baby. Not to mention, it is costly to have a baby in the NICU. Many times parents quit jobs so that they can be with their baby and help care for him or her.
In order to help lighten the load of this particular new mom, I was able to fill at Mother’s Day card FULL of gift cards. There were Visa gift cards to help with different expenses as well as local restaurant gift cards. When there is a baby in the NICU you really don’t want to be home cooking, so parents will spend money eating out and getting back to the baby as quick as possible.
While I didn’t get to see this mom, I was told that she was in tears when she opened the card. I am so thankful that we were able to make a bright spot in her day!
Make sure to see the Pampers #ThanksBaby video that takes you on the journey from when baby is first born. It makes us all thankful for the little ones that made us moms! Make sure to share the moments that make you want to say #ThanksBaby as well.
If you want to check out the video below, you will have a sneak peak into another little Pampers Mission I accomplished. More on that one later this week!
