You know all of the funny faces you make as a parent? I’m sharing some of my favorites as part of a sponsored post for Cetaphil® #Beautiphil
Parenting comes with immense joy, unbelievable hard work and huge payoffs. It also comes with belly laughs, gasps and a giant side of did-that-just-happen? I’ve captured some of these beautiful, wonderful everyday crazy moments in our family and thought I’d share them with you because I’m thinking you can relate.
When you get the call that your child has been offered a spot at the FREE amazing immersion school you applied to. Well, not the call where they told you because you had to act like a dignified adult on that one. This is the call right after that to your husband. Followed by a touch down style dance chanting “we’re not paying for private school!”
When you find that dirty diaper you stuffed back in the diaper bag while at a friend’s house three…no maybe four days ago? Actually who knows how many days ago. You can’t remember what you ate for breakfast or if you ate breakfast. Did you eat breakfast?
When your mom won’t let you go swimming until your little brother goes down for a nap. Because, rough life. Those eyes and pouty lip are going to work for you for years to come.
The only one who can come close to your sad eye begging skills is the dog. Who needs a bath. When did the dog last get a bath? When did I last get a bath? You know who seems to get all the baths around here?
This guy! When you realize you are happy, you know it and you actually CAN clap your hands. Milestones! Also, you are the cleanest member of the family despite your desire to not just dig in the dirt, but lay down and roll in it anytime you find a good looking patch of dirt or better yet a puddle.
Speaking of dirt and baths, we have a new favorite baby wash. Of the handful that have made their way into the tub this past year I think Cetaphil® Baby Ultra Moisturizing Wash produces the best smelling squeaky clean baby. So much so that Craig, who asks me if my handbag is new when I’ve had it for two years (MEN!) noticed it right away while holding Blake and asked me if I used something different. He then asked me if I left it in the bathroom so he could use it. I’m not sure if he means to use it for Blake or for himself but I can’t blame him. Because I have a secret myself.
I’ve never used baby oil for a purpose other than to grease the floors in my childhood bedroom and go skating in socks with my older sister. 25+ years later my parents have still not forgiven or forgotten. That’s not the secret. That story has been told at holiday dinners for decades. The secret is that I popped this bottle of Cetaphil® Baby Moisturizing Oil open just to take a whiff and see how it felt.
I don’t do well with strong fragrances or goopy feeling products and can’t even go near the candle aisle in Target. This my friends smells amazing and feels amazing. Forget Blake. This bottle right here is all mine. Okay, maybe I’ll share because I love that it’s gentle enough to use on his soft sweet baby skin but powerful enough to moisturize my dry neglected skin and doesn’t break the bank. I’m not surprised since Cetaphil® is recommended by more dermatologists than any other brand and the baby line is paraben free, mineral oil free, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested.
And maybe being selfish once in a while is a good thing. Yep, I took five minutes to put the moisturizing oil on my own legs, arms, feet and hands, actually got dressed, did my hair and headed off for a family date night at our favorite local beach resort. It felt Wonderphil™. Even though I was still chasing a newly running Blake it was nice to feel…dare I say a little bit Beautiphil™?
