As a mom I have gotten to experience so many amazing firsts with each of my 5 girls and every time is special and magical and part of this amazing journey called motherhood. While I would love to tout my supermom powers and take credit for doing it all perfectly I know with out one particular person this journey would be so much harder and more complicated and that is my husband.
My husband is a pretty incredible man and an even better dad, without him I really do not know how we would have made it this far all in one piece. He is such a major support system taking over when I am tired, exhausted or just overwhelmed. I still remember after having my first baby I literally did not get out of bed for 2 weeks. My husband brought me all my meals up stairs even made late night runs for strawberry sorbet (my favorite). He did nightly kangaroo care with our sweet girl and embraced babywearing even though it terrified him.
He was a born natural at this parenting thing and now 5 girls later he doesn’t bat an eye at taking all 5 to an indoor waterpark by himself. Oh yes you read that right BY HIMSELF while I was off attending conference sessions. His support is endless and boundless and I am not sure it is possible to thank him for all he does. With every birth he takes 2 weeks off to be home and be my support as well as to give himself bonding time with the newest member of our family. He is just that fantastic.
Pampers asked me if I would want to celebrate someone in my life who has been a great support during all of babies firsts and I knew immediately who that person would be, my husband. My husband loves music and Starbucks coffee yet he never spends any money on himself, he puts all of his time and money right back into our family. Treating me and the girls, he does that a lot, but treating himself never. My husband loves listening to records and recently his vintage receiver that was his fathers stopped working and I knew repairing that would be a priceless gift to him, I found a local shop that can repair it and as we speak it is in the shop, he is so excited. And because I know I love a little treat now and again I bought him a Starbucks gift card so that he has no excuses to not treat himself now and again.
I am so grateful to Pampers for forcing me to slow down and really think about those that are my greatest supporters and champions in this motherhood journey. Thank you Pampers for helping me say thank you in a grand way to my champion supporter, my husband!
