I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for JOHNSON's Baby. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating
This Mother's Day, I got to spend it with my love ones! I spent the afternoon with my best friend Jessica and then my family took me out to wonderful meal. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by my family and friends. On Mother's Day this year, I remembered all of the moms who guided me through the first stage of motherhood and I am so grateful for them. Because I remember how tough the first couple of years are, I did managed to send out a few cards using Johnson's Baby Cares to my friends who just became new mommies for the first time this year.
Motherhood is not easy. As moms, we all need assurance that we are doing a good job. For new moms, their kids are not old enough to say "Thank you," "I love you," or "You are a great mom," so the assurance needs to come elsewhere. I think it is important that we support other moms whenever possible. If you could look back and try to recall all of stresses associated with being a new mom, then please reach out to a new mom to let her know that she is doing a good job. Personally, being able to vent to other moms and hear that they were sharing the same troubles I did helped me understand that I was not alone in my struggles. More importantly, these women helped me laughed through much of it. They assured me that I was doing the best I could. I could not imagine what my first year of motherhood would be like without them by my side.
If you know a working mom who is struggling to balance her work and family life, someone who is going through a difficult time, or a new mom who is trying to gain her footing in motherhood, you could give her some assurance by sending her a card through Johnson's Baby Cares. The service is completely free to you, but for every card sent, shared, or liked, Johnson's Baby will donate $1 to Save the Children, up to $150,000 to benefit early childhood education. As such, be sure to send a card to that mom who could use some assurance. Your card will bring a smile to her face and benefit a great cause at the same time!
