Being a mom is one of the easiest and one of the hardiest jobs you’ll ever do. As I was informed this morning from my 3 year old, today is NOT Mother’s Day. It is Patrick’s Day. I did have to wrack my brains on that one and figured out he thinks today is St. Patrick’s Day! Instead of arguing with a stubborn 3 year old, we are just going with it. And these types of conversations are the joys of motherhood. My husband is pouring concrete in the yard. The kids are sitting next to me on the couch and watching cartoons on a lazy Sunday morning (Madison just got up about 15 minutes ago. Now, if the 3 year old could figure out how to sleep in, life will be great). However, the unconditional love you get is well worth every minute of motherhood.
This year, in honor of Mother’s Day, Johnson’s is introducing the “Treasuring Everyday Joy” campaign, which encourages Moms to take a moment to pause and reflect on the happiness motherhood has brought them. As a trusted partner to Moms for over 100 years, Johnson’s wants to hear about the special moments you have shared with your child. And, in an effort to help ensure all families have the support and ability to generate their own special moments, with every “promise” (“like”) made at facebook.com/johnsonsbaby, Johnson’s will donate $1 to the March of Dimes. Also, start looking through the baby books or get out your camera, since Johnson’s will host a series of photo contests on its Facebook page beginning in May. Selected monthly winners will receive one of a variety of prizes and be eligible for the $25,000 Grand Prize, to be announced in January 2012.
My kids are here to due to the research that March of Dimes has done on preterm labor (and how to stop it), so it’s a cause that stand behind fully. Little did I know that the 6 years I walked for the March of Dimes when I was a kid in school would benefit my kids when I was an adult!
I wrote this while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Johnson’s and received Johnson’s Baby products and a promotional item and to facilitate my post.
