Do you Need Mom Reassurance?

2:14 PM

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for JOHNSON's Baby. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

I'm pregnant with my 6th child, so you would think I would have outgrown "mommy insecurity."  Still,  it pleases me to get the occasional "you're doing a great job with your kids" or to hear that I've inspired someone else with their own parenting.  Is it a bit selfish to need reassurance?  Sure.  But it can go a long way in giving me confidence needed to do the tough job of mothering.

Do you often wish you had more reassurance as a mom?  Do you sometimes struggle to feel like you're doing the right thing in your heart -- even though you know you are in your mind?  As moms, we have a huge opportunity to support one another and be there to give one another an "atta girl" when we are most vulnerable.

I remember very recently finding out about our current pregnancy.  It was not something I was prepared for, and yet, I found myself searching to hear anyone tell me anything other than "Oh, you're having ANOTHER ONE?  Don't you know how those babies are made?"  I just once wanted to hear "Congratulations!  That's wonderful! Babies are a blessing."  I also struggled with fear over what a 6th c-section could possibly do for my health.

It was on my lowest day that I read a Facebook status from a friend I hadn't seen in ages.  She had posted Scripture that seemed to address my concerns and insecurities so well.  It was: "Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory!  Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.  And God granted his request. - 1 Chronicles 4:10"

See, others know what you're going through in some way -- even if they don't fully understand your specific struggles as a mom.  And you, too, could inspire another mom by giving them reassurance, encouragement, and prayer.  One way to do this is through a Johnson's Baby Cares Card! Not only can you encourage others with your message, for every card sent, shared, or liked, Johnson's Baby will donate $1.00 to Save the Children, up to $150,000 to benefit early childhood education.

Will you send a card?  Even though I had a fabulous Mother's Day, there are so many other days during the year where it is important to show our appreciation.  Who will you send your card to?
