While I’m obviously no expert (Y chromosomes pretty much exclude me from experiencing the… “miracle” (?) of childbirth first-hand), I’ve learned a lot about motherhood through everything I’ve seen Sarah go through in our nearly 3-year journey as parents so far.
As soon as that first baby hits the scene, they teach you how to grow, learn and love more than you ever thought possible. There’re plenty of moments when you don’t know where you’ll find the strength to make it through the day, but they’re balanced out by profound moments of happiness that’re hard to describe when you don’t have a little “you” to look after.
Pampers is celebrating more than 50 years of parents relying on their products to care for their babies’ happy, healthy development with a new #ThanksBaby video, capturing the moment when a baby’s born and perhaps the most unpredictable journey humanly possible starts its course. For me, though, even though I’m still figuring it out like I’m doing it for the first time each and every day, I can barely remember life before my boys, and with it this good, I’m okay with that.
#ThanksBaby — Our Lives Wouldn’t be the Same Without You.
When a baby is born, a Mom is born, and that in itself is cause for celebration. The very act draws you into a world full of changes—you start with a little bundle devoid of words, but showering you with unconditional love as they make sense of the world around them, and though the journey ahead’s shaped by equal parts joy, challenges, and the emotions that come with the territory, I think many Moms—and parents in general agree that they wouldn’t trade it for the world.
See y’all Wednesday—if you’ve never done a Twitter party with me, I promise: you’re in for something else entirely.
Until the next, I remain,
Disclaimer: Pampers compensated me for this post and Twitter Party as the premier Dad (read: only Dad) of their Pampers Baby Panel, where we share stories of how Pampers products have made child rearing even a little bit easier.
