Like most moms, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for my babies, although they’re 6 & 8 years old I still call them babies and they will be my babies for ever!
From the day I found out I was pregnant, my babies, changed my life, I remember I started to take care of myself and body like never before, I would even cross the street so carefully, I was afraid I was going to get hit by a car (Even when there were no cars close to me) I started eating extremely healthy, I completely quit coffee although my doctor said I could drink decaf I didn’t want anything non-healthy to be near my babies. I had always being very active and I love to exercise, but the doctor told me that active women and that exercise regularly deliver even healthier babies I was on a mission, since I was already a runner my doctor said I could keep doing as long as the”baby didn’t complain” And he didn’t in fact I think he loved when I ran because he would go to sleep, I ran 5 days a week until the morning I gave birth.
Pampers believes that even though babies are little, they are powerful agents of change. Babies have a profound impact on our lives and on the world and I agree!
Once I had my babies, my life changed even more, as a mom you know our lives were never the same after you have kids, but seeing that beautiful creature I created in my tummy made me want to be a better person, a more kind human being, I wanted to change the world for my baby! Of course I didn’t change the world, but I did change my lifestyle. I kept eating very healthy and exercising, now he could see me on the treadmill and go with me for a run on his stroller and again he loved it! Actually both of my boys love to run because of me!I’m not saying I’ve been the best mom, because I haven’t but in the last 8 years I’ve tried to do my best and to do anything I can to make my kids happier and offered them a better life.
When a baby comes into your life, you want to be a better person for that baby. Babies bring out the best in each of us. They make our lives better. And that’s why there’s nothing each of us wouldn’t do to make life better for babies.
My goals for my kids is for them to love each other, I always tell them they’re best friends forever and they need to always help each other.
I also want for them to love who they’re and how they look, that’s why I exercise with them almost everyday for at least 20 minutes, we ran together, play soccer, swim, kayak, if they want to sky or boogie boarding we do it. Some days I’m very tired and don’t want to do anything but stay home, but I do it for them, so they’re active and find the fun in exercising!
It’s easy to hired a baby sitter or give your kids an electronic so you can have time for yourself, I do it but not every week, even in the summer, I enroll them in a few summer camps but I also plan activities together, although it would be much easier to keep them occupied at a camp from 9am to 3pm, I do it for my babies, so we all keep bonding and have great memories of summer fun with mom!
Pampers has unveiled a new video – The Pampers Better for Baby video- to celebrate the many ways babies bring out the best in all of us. Grab a tissue and WATCH THE VIDEO because you might cry!
As you saw, the video ends with a pledge: “together we can make life #betterforbaby.” Pampers hopes the video inspires people to share what they already do – and what they might begin doing – to make life better for the babies in their lives. Pampers is inviting people to share their pledges using hashtag #betterforbaby. We believe these small changes can add up to a big impact.
Each pledge is an individual promise of how someone can make a little difference in helping to make life #BetterforBaby. It could be something as simple as pledging to sing or read to baby, to exercise more, or to donate things your baby outgrows to charity.
I did my pledge as you can see, do it today using the hashtag #BetterforBaby.
