“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” – Psalm 139-13-14
A pack of Baby Care Plus+ Pink came to my door this morning. It’s a complete line of baby powder, lotion, shampoo, wash, cologne and soap. The first thing I did? I took a whiff of each of the items.
Ahhh, the smell reminds me of how children are beautiful gifts from God.
Life with a lone child now is pretty great. I feel like my husband and I just started to get out of the weeds of all the parenting adjustments and have just started having more fun as a millennial family. TJ and I can still serve the church, both able to pursue things we want to do (He’s almost done with his Masters and I’ve been on a series of Stock Trading and Investing classes) and have down time to just read books, go on movies or have a massage. We travel once a year, we go on adventures with our little Kage.
Life has just gotten’ pretty cool and composed. But then, let’s not forget. We prayed for her– Anaiah Karisse.
Anaiah is Hebrew for God has answered and Karisse is Greek for God’s loving grace or favor.
I’ve been carrying her for 36 weeks now. Anytime now, our second baby is ready to see us. I’m scared and excited at the same time.
Everyone says two is a pandemonium and that we can kiss our sweet life goodbye. I feel selfish to admit that all this anxiety roots from the thought of losing time for myself, but honestly? I need that time to be able to share my wholeness to my husband and children.
Lately, I look at Kage and feel pangs of pain from missing him already. Not that I’m afraid I won’t love our second baby. I know I will. But I am scared that having Anaiah will make changes between me and my firstborn. Kage and I have so much fun together right now, play-dating, reading and snuggling. Will we still be able to do that? Or will I just turn out to be a tired and stressed out mommy monster, that I’ll yell at him one day and tell him I’m busy?
But today’s scripture reminded me of a wonderful thing: In 2 Corinthians 12:9, Jesus says, “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
I can always hold on to God’s grace. How can I overcast the fact that He’s never failed to empower me in areas of parenting I couldn’t fulfill on my own.
I might fail as a parent to my children, but God will never fail to be a gracious, loving and effective Heavenly Father to me. Where we are flawed, He fixes and restores and empowers us to be better the next time around.
Chilled parenting may seem impossible, but I know, with God nothing is impossible.
They smell like a mix of fresh powder and Spanish baby colognes. I can imagine it blending well with not only babies’, but even toddlers’ skin. As fate would have it, I’ve been actually on the look out for a new toiletry brand for Kage (and Anaiah) and without bias, I find that this line is a perfect addition to my baby arsenal.
Here are some other things why I’d recommend this baby line:
- They’re hypoallergenic, which means that it’s less likely to cause an allergic reaction to kids and even newborn.
- The cologne has special Hydraplus formula that contains moisturizers, which help prevent dryness.
- The soap is made of mild pH-balanced formula. For me, this is important because within a few weeks of birth, Anaiah’s skin surface will change and a skincare product that is close to the pH level of my baby’s skin won’t disturb its protective layer.
- The soap and wash have Lamesoft Skin Protector, which forms a natural barrier around skin that protects while cleaning for softer and smoother skin.
- The lotion contains 24-hour locked in moisturizers & vitamin E. No explanation needed for this, I guess.
- The shampoo is made with Cetiol conditioners, which moisturizes our babies’ sensitive hair and scalp, preventing dryness.
For sincerity’s sake, I can’t say anything about the baby powder, because I’m against using baby powders on my children in general. But hey, that’s just me.
I highly encourage you, moms, to try out this line. We don’t recommend products lightly here, but I find that the Baby Care Plus Pink products are really top notch. At least have a sniff of them and see if you can resist bringing them to the counter. I’m sure I won’t, so thanks to Tupperware that I simply got them as a blessing.
