Hi My Loves!
First of all, Happy New Year! Can you believe it's 2015 already? Where did the year go? I hope 2015 is all treating you very well so far and continues to bring you everything you hope for.
I have a very special post today because it's something I love doing…. the opportunity to give back to people who may not be having the easiest, breeziest life at the moment. As most of you know I am a member of the Pamper's Baby Board. Every year they have their Gift of Sleep campaign and this year they asked me if I would like to participate in it again. Basically by using Pamper's Baby Dry diapers, you are able to get more sleep due to your baby not waking up because they feel wet. So by gifting Pamper's baby dry diapers to a Mama, you are gifting them sleep, which we all know is so hard to find when you have little ones :)
Be sure to check out my GIFT OF SLEEP post from last year!
Pamper's is a very generous company and always goes all out. They sent a very lovely package of all sorts of diapers in many sizes, as well as wipes, a Sleep Sheep, a soft blanket and a very generous gift card of $100. They simply asked for me to give it to someone who I felt could use a little sleep :) It couldn't have come at a more perfect time because one of my dear friends is having a little bit of a tough time. She has 3 children, a 5 year old, 3 year old and a 1 year old. She is also 30 weeks pregnant and her husband has been on bed rest due to a back injury for the past month. He owns his own construction company, so he can't work due to the pain. I can only imagine the stress they both have and I can't imagine having to put on a happy face for the children while you are already exhausted from being pregnant as well and having 3 little ones running around. So I immediately knew who I wanted to give my Gift of Sleep to. Not only is she an amazing person in general but she would never ask for anything and she is always there with a cheerful smile and would do anything for anyone.
Here's everything Pamper's sent.
Phoenix and Lily thought it was the coolest lamb ever. It has lots of different noises that help to soothe your child. Lily had a heartbeat monitor up until just a month of so ago and it really helped to keep her sleeping and napping really well. I highly recommend trying one out if you have a light sleeper like I do. It's a miracle haha!
We wrapped it all up and the kids were very excited to take it over to our friends. It's always fun to get presents as a child but I love watching my kids get just as excited to give presents to others.
Trying to get both of them to stand still and look at me was not happening, so here you go. Haha!
The next day we took it over to my friends home and she was so surprised and excited and grateful. Whether she uses the money to take a little spa time for herself, or maybe a date with her hubby… or even to pay bills or buy some new baby stuff, I don't know… but I do know that it will help and the diapers will definitely ensure that when that new precious little baby comes, she will get some sleep while he stays dry in his diaper :) Ahhh…. sleep. Sweet, delightful, sleep :)
Happy New Year again and thanks so much to Pamper's for allowing me to do this for my sweet friend. Your generosity and kindness is much appreciated and I am so thankful to be a part of such a wonderful company.
Have a great day :)
And don't forget….
