As I think about Lucy's upcoming birthday, I am completely overwhelmed with emotion. Amazed that this will be birthday #2 since her cancer diagnosis and so very thankful to have spent the past 7 years with one of the most amazing little girls in the world. I was looking at some pictures of when she was little and I yearn to hold her again as a baby. I can hardly remember what she felt like in my arms as a newborn, yet it seems just like yesterday.
And just like that, she grew. How do you make it stop? Do you really want to? I long for those days sometimes, especially with Lucy. When life was simple. That girl has kept me on my toes from day one!
I have to giggle when I think about how far I have come as a mother. Oh, how the little things would get me so worked up. I could make a mountain out of a mole hill better than anyone I knew. When Ella was born everything was a challenge. My desire to be a perfectionist nearly killed me and ruined me of ever wanting any more children. When Lucy came along, I had mellowed out a good bit, benefiting most from throwing away all the parenting books and just learning on the job. Like when I discovered Boudreaux's Butt Paste.
Like every mother before me, when a diaper rash reared its ugly head, I began to panic. For our children, it seemed that as soon as you saw the first sign it was out of control by the next diaper. One day I was walking through the grocery and saw this cute little yellow tube that read Boudreaux's Butt Paste. How could you NOT buy it? To my surprise, it worked better than any other cream or paste I had tried before. I was honestly amazed at how quickly Lucy's rash disappeared. When I told my mom about it, I remember her saying "Boud-what?" Now when I give a baby gift or when I'm asked for new mom advice, I immediately tell my friends about Boudreaux.
Ok. So I have to know. Am I the only one who had a rough go of it as a new mom? I'd love to hear your "ah-ha" moments or maybe you have some helpful hints on how you prevent or treat diaper rash. Or maybe you just have a funny story to tell about your experience with Boudreaux's. Either way, I'd love for you to watch this hilarious video and then add your comments below for a chance to participate in this giveaway!
