Change the Conversation with WaterWipes

I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for WaterWipes.  I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

My Kids

We’ve been listening to a lot of Christmas songs in our house these past few weeks.  There’s a lot of piano and guitar and homemade maracas shaking.  There have been Christmas play rehearsals during dinner and endless amounts of dancing.  Dancing, dancing, everywhere!  We’ve transitioned to Pandora so we can listen to it alllllll day without growing tired of the same songs over and over.

Christmas is a wonderful yet hectic time of year.  Our family is six months into our renovation and move.  …we live in chaos.  But it will end soon!!  That’s what I keep telling myself anyway.  Despite the packing boxes in our living room, the fact that I packed our gingerbread cookie cutters and the blender for our egg nog milkshakes, and that we had to go to the new house and get our Christmas tree tonight. sigh…there are plenty of beautiful things and people right here.  In the middle of this mess.  Just look at that video above.  Pure, unadulterated joy.  That’s what I’m choosing to focus on today.

Do you recognize that face up there?  Yep, that’s me.  I’ve been fortunate to be a WaterWipes ambassador this year and from fall fun days to messy moments at home WaterWipes has been there and had my back.  These chemical free baby wipes are amazing!  Their gentleness makes them the perfect baby wipe, face and hand wipe.  If you haven’t tried them yet, what are you waiting for?  Go here to see which locations in your area sell them.

If I could change the conversation I would encourage moms to focus on the beautiful moments that are in life.  Sure there are a lot of messy moments but there’s a lot of joy to be found when you can appreciate the beauty while standing in the middle of a mess.  Trust me, I should know.  I mean, did you see my living room? 😉

  1. What a great reminder to focus on the moments during the season. I sometimes get so wrapped up into what is next on my list, I forget to be thankful for that moment I just had.

  2. I love the idea of changing the conversation on motherhood. It’s always best to remember the wonderful times when you’re cleaning up poop.

  3. I just love water wipes! I am so glad that they are chemical free! We use them for so many things!

  4. I would have loved to have had Water Wipes when the kids were little. I get so caught up in the day to say stuff that I lose sight of the important things in life.

  5. There are so many wonderful memories I have with my kids. I hope that they cherish them as much as I do. Thankfully I am able to get messy & get in on the fun.

    I really appreciate this post. It is so very important to remember the great times of being a mother. Children grow up so fast and we need to be thankful for the special moments we have with them every day.

  7. It’s awesome how useful Water Wipes are for messes at home and on the go. It’s really nice to know that they are safe for sensitive skin.

  8. What a good reminder to enjoy life even when it’s messy. No I can get caught up and everything trying to get the house clean for family.

  9. What a great idea. We love Water Wipes for on the go.

  10. Water wipes made a huge difference for my friends little girl. She was always getting diaper rashes with the other wipes. They make a great baby shower gift.

  12. I love your advice to focus on the beautiful moments in our lives! That’s what I try to do everyday, mom or not – that’s some great advice! I also love the idea of having a pack of waterwipes around in case of emergencies of any kind!

  14. I love that these wipes are chemical free. I wish they were around when my kids were babies!

  15. I wish that Water Wipes were around whenever my son was a baby! But, they seem to be great for everyday use, too!
