Parenting is messy, but how we handle it shows our growth and patience as parents. I haven't and still don't always show grace under pressure, but as I have mothered four boys over a span of almost ten years, I have learned (most of the time, there is no perfect in parenting) to show a little grace and love in messy situations.
Plus these messy situations make pretty cute pictures and memories. This little guy is now seven going on eight. I'm so glad to have this precious memory of his blue iced face on his 3rd birthday. Had we not taken a picture, I don't think I would have remembered.
Here is the same little sweetie even younger and messier. He used to get into everything. Another precious memory I am glad we documented with photos. I am so glad that I am smiling in the photo and handling it with grace. I would rather remember the joy of the little years more than the frustrations.
This brings us to our newest little sweetie as we are reminded to #hugthemess with Huggies.
We went to Family Dollar to pick up Huggies Snug & Dry diapers. Have you heard of Family Dollar Smart Coupons? They are new to me. You simply go to the Family Dollar website and click on the coupons you want to add to your "wallet". It's really easy to do. When you checkout after shopping, enter your phone number in the keypad to redeem your coupons. You can save $2 on Huggies Snug & Dry diapers with the Family Dollar Smart Coupons!
This little guy loves to shop since he has a great view of everything around him from the security and comfort of being next to me in the baby carrier, so we bought a few extra things we needed. Honestly, I haven't done much shopping in Family Dollar in a while and was pleased with the large selection of home goods. I even bought some curtain rods I needed to replace, saving myself a trip to another store.
We also picked up some Huggies One & Done Refreshing Wipes. I love the cucumber and green tea scent and they are strong, but soft on baby's skin. They are also packaged so that only one wipe comes out at a time so you don't have to stuff any unused wipes back in the container.
These are also handy for washing blue iced faces at birthday parties, just make sure you get a picture first!
Since we're getting real here about parenting and messes, I didn't try to edit out the laundry all over the couch or the hamper in the middle of the living room because this is life in all of it's beauty and messiness.
Look at this curious little one checking out his Huggies Snug & Dry diaper. So cute! Huggies Snug & Dry diapers have increased absorbency at the same great value. Now that this little guy is sleeping through the night most nights, I really appreciate the more absorbent Huggies Snug & Dry diapers.
