A Love Letter to My Son (And a chance to win!)

*This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

I'm not a new mom; I have had 5 babies prior to this last one.  He is, however, my last one.  Because all 6 babies were born via medically necessary c-section, my body can't physically carry another baby to term.  Because of this, I have a special bond with new baby Manny, one that I hope we have forever.

In honor of Mother's Day (my 15th one!) I have written a letter to little Manasseh Jesse Knerl:
Dear Manny,
You are quite the pill.  You cry quite often.  You need held all the time.  And yet, because you have 2 dimples, three chins, and the most smiling eyes I've ever known, I know that you enjoy life.  Because of you, I enjoy life a little more, too.  Thanks for being my "Manwich"...  
Here's a sweet video that shares the sentiment of #ThanksBaby.. like my letter to little Manny:

This Mother's Day, I am happy to see great companies like Pampers teaming up with efforts of Feeding America to help babies and moms get through life healthier and happier than they could go alone.  The plight of poverty is something no new mom should have to worry about.  She has enough on her plate (no pun intended.)  For every view of the video above, Pampers will donate 1 diaper (up to 1 million diapers.)  Please consider sharing the video with friends!

You can learn more about what Pampers is doing to help babies at their website, via Twitter, or Facebook!
