We Did Mother's Day the Pampers Way — an Ode to the Important Women in My Life (Featured Image)

Eventually, when it’s the first of June and I look back at the May that was, I’ll likely wonder how the heck I managed to get through it all. Many of us fret over Mother’s Day and how to show proper appreciation for some of the most important women in our lives, but as fate would have it, we somehow decided it wise to pack Mother’s Day, Sarah’s birthday, our wedding anniversary—and this year, Sarah’s sister’s wedding—all into the same month! Mamma mia!

But I digress.

Busy month notwithstanding, I don’t know about you, but Moms are very important in my life. In a move I appreciate far more now that I’m older with kids of my own, my Dad sacrificed time with the family to work 14-hour days six times a week so he could put a roof over our heads. In a time long before the wealth of children’s programming we have now to watch over the kids of parents who have to work, this meant Mom would have to drop us off at pick us up from our Grandma’s house, who then would make sure we got to the bus so we could get to school. I’m the by-product of a strong network of women who made sure to feed, clothe and care for my brothers and I because they wanted a brighter future for their children that wouldn’t see them torn away from their families due to work.

And that’s exactly what I hope to cultivate for my boys. Sure—the sacrifices of my parents undoubtedly set the stage for a life where I’m afforded the time and energy to stay involved in my sons’ lives, but I’m wholly aware that there’re things I’m ill-equipped or simply unable to provide for them myself. The future I crave for my boys relies on the loving inputs of both their parents, and it all starts with choices made the moment they exit the womb.

Part of this master plan to raise amazing kids is keeping their rear ends safe from diaper rashes and their outfits free of leaks so they can start their lives as comfortably as possible. For that, you’ll regularly see Pampers on their booties, doing their job before, during and after those little accidents with both diapers and wipes to handle the business.

Children are serious business, so we should take our parenting decisions seriously as well. My boys and I spent this past Mother’s Day weekend celebrating the women who’ve held us up, letting them know we couldn’t have made it this far without them. With lives as busy as the ones we have today, it’s too easy to take things for granted, but it’s imperative that our closest relationships aren’t one of them!

I hope the Moms out there all enjoyed their Mother’s Days, and may this prize go to a child who’d love to enjoy what a clean bum can do for them!

Until the next, I remain,

  1. My mom was a stay at home mom and baking with her was always fun.

  2. Something I loved was going to visit my mom at her work. She was an elementary school teacher. It was so great to see how much the other children loved her. Made me appreciate her all the more.

  3. My favorite memory is from when I was a kid. We’d camp out in our living room for movie night with mom. Every mattress on every bed would be in the middle of the floor. We’d laugh until we fell asleep.

  4. My mother was quite ill when I was a child but I have fond memories of her just letting me play with her hair and fix it up in crazy up-dos.

  5. my favorite memory is when my mom and i went on a via rail train trip to Edmonton, it was a lot of fun and it was nice that it was just the two of us!

  6. My greatest memory with my mom is the road trip I went on with her when I was 19. We had so much fun and it was a great transition in our relationship from her being the grown-up and I the child to a grown-up relationship.

  7. I miss my late mother, we used to go shopping every 2 or 3 days, we would pick a place to go and we would go and enjoy the day together shopping, talking and just enjoying the time together. Shes been gone for more the 4 yrs but still feels like yesterday. I am so thankful for memories, pictures, videos and the time spent with her before she passed. thanks for the chance to win
