Ok — here’s a confession. The Sweeney household is borderline obsessed with the Olympics. Talk about the perfect combination of personal achievement, teamwork, sportsmanship, and a true love for your country!! It’s an amazing event to say the LEAST. I particularly am fond of the women’s events — like Skeleton. Have you seen it before??
The Skeleton is crazy, but so cool. It’s basically head-first sledding to the mega extreme. It takes a lot of skill and a lot of guts…I guess kind of like being a mom, right? Being a mom is certainly a really tough job, especially since each day brings new and interesting challenges. You never really can take time off to rest and recuperate…and you have to practice every day just to keep up! So maybe being a mom is even harder than being an Olympic Athlete…LOL. YEAH I SAID IT!!
But as moms would certainly testify, all of those sweat and tears really pay off in the end, big time!
P&G, Pampers, and Babies R Us want to recognize the achievements of both moms and Olympians! They’ve teamed up with U.S. Olympic Skeleton Athlete Noelle Pikus Pace to do just that!!! The best part of the campaign…we all get to share our children’s milestone moments on Twitter and Instagram with #MilestoneMoments. Check out some of these awesome pics on babiesrus.com/noellemilestones, which is also the hub for checking out more on Noelle as well as the best Pampers products and offers.
Here’s a great video of Noelle:

All of these great products and offers got me thinking about what helps me get through the days…both with my baby Caleb and my “big” kids Natalie and Liam. So let’s see, how do I handle all of life’s moments, both big and small? I think we all need patience, love, understanding, and some pretty cool and useful product…LOL. I personally LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Pampers® Swaddlers and recently Pampers® Extra Protection Diapers (for night time) as well as Pampers® Wipes. Those are a must!
Now that Celeb is eating real food you never know how much you depend on something until you are REALLY using it, like for cleaning up a messy baby feeding session. We buy TONS of Bounty paper towels, Dreft detergent for the kids cloths, and Tide for ours. AND with all the new baby toys we’re stocking up on, we buy Duracell batteries in BULK (AA, AAA, 9V, D)! In the end, it’s all about enjoying your life with your family and really taking in all the little and big #MilestoneMoments.
So, I would love to invite you to share some of your #MilestoneMoments! I would love to see them, and so would the folks at P&G and Babies R Us. They are super excited about this program. Here are some of my recent #MilestoneMoments! It’s of a hodgepodge, but we love them:
Caleb’s First time “Walking”
The First Trip To Macy’s NYC Santa as a Family of Five!
Caleb’s First Christmas!
First Broken Anything!
Caleb’s first teeth!!
I’d also love for you to join me at the Twitter Party! It will be Wednesday, January 22nd at 2:00pm EST, hashtag #MilestoneMoments. From first steps to first words, we’re talking about Baby’s Milestones!
If all of that wasn’t enough..we have a giveaway as well!!! One (1) lucky Lady and the Blog reader will receive an awesome “care package” prize pack including Bounty, Pampers wipes, Duracell batteries, and a nice surprise!!
