Dear Maya and Maura,
I have wiped your little noses so many times… and I’ve loved every minute of it! Because I know every moment I spend with you is precious.
When you’re sick, I feel so helpless. I wish I could magically take all the sickness away, even if it meant putting it upon myself! It could be anything… it could be nothing… I’m so used to controlling every situation, and hate it when I can’t.
Whether it means sitting in a steamy bathroom with you for what feels like forever, playing Candyland again and again, watching endless cartoons, or cuddling with you in my bed (kicking your daddy to the couch!), I’d do anything to get you back to your normal, playful selves.
When you wake up giggling, with that familiar vibrancy and sparkle in your eyes, I know you’re feeling better and a huge weight is lifted. Even in difficult times, you always see the joy in life. I’m so blessed to be your mom!
For over a hundred years, mothers (like me and you!) have trusted the JOHNSON’S brand to provide gentle products formulated just for babies. I’ve been using JOHNSON’S Baby Lotion for as long as I can remember! Now, JOHNSON’S Baby Cares, Save the Children and new mom Hilary Duff have joined forces to make sure families who are experiencing difficult times, both in the U.S. and around the world, get the baby care resources they need.
“As a new mom, I am inspired by this worthy cause, which aims to give all moms a chance to not only experience the joy of a healthy baby, but also an opportunity to be together and have moments of normalcy during crisis situations.” – Hilary Duff
It’s hard to imagine not having basic needs for our children, isn’t it? Through this partnership, ‘Baby Care Kits’ filled with essential JOHNSON’S Baby products will be sent to needy families worldwide in times of natural disasters. You can support this campaign by visiting the JOHNSON’S BABY CARES tab on Facebook, purchasing any JOHNSON’S Baby product between now and June 10th, 2012 and redeeming a $0.50 cent coupon at retail stores, of which half will be donated to Save the Children.

It really is hard to imagine babies without having their basic needs. It’s just heartbreaking. Thanks for sharing this information, I am spreading the word to my mommy friends.
