I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for WaterWipes. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I don’t always get dressed in clothes presentable to wear outside of our home. When I try a little, and especially when I wear a skirt or a dress my children always seem to notice. Putting make up on and fixing my hair usually results in some sort of natural disaster happening in the house, but when I’m done…I’m royalty.
“Wow mommy! You’re beautiful, you’re a princess! ” – My 3 year old son. Never mind my hormonal breakouts, the dry shampoo that just won’t mix in (making my 3 day dirty hair look grey), or the mismatched socks and the fact that I can’t find my other shoe. Never mind all of that because I AM a PRINCESS.
That’s what they think of me.
My sweet children think that I am royalty. That I am special and worthy of all the things.
Even when I think I’m failing. Even when I don’t think I’m measuring up to the “perfect moms” I see around me. Even when Daniel Tiger was playing on the tv for 3 hours that day. Even when I yell.
If sweet Jane could talk in full sentences she would probably say,
“Mommy, I love you. You are my safe place. You provide comfort, nourishment and familiarity. I don’t care if my outfits match, and I’d rather not wear bows in my hair. I have no idea what other mommies are doing, I just want to be with you. I love it when you read to me. Even better when you sing to me. I’m your special princess, and you’re my special queen.”
I am royalty because I am theirs and only theirs.
WaterWipes has challenged you and I to change the conversation. To truly think about what my children would say about me. To take a step back from social media, mommy comparison wars, and focus in on them. Check out this video to help change the conversation!
It’s been an honor to be a WaterWipes mom these past 6 months. To help promote a company who is cheering moms to be themselves and stop the judgement. As the only baby wipes brand that are completely chemical free containing only 2 ingredients ( water and .1% grapefruit seed extract), water wipes have become a staple in our home. I encourage you to find your nearest WaterWipes retailer here.
