2015 – Keep doing what you do best!

Oh God – looking at my last date post is a terrible thing – I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that so much time has passed and I’ve done so little on here. Yes – I feel guilty for not giving my blog some major TLC. I mean, it’s 2015 – the chance to start fresh, list down all these resolutions that I want to accomplish by this year, live the dream and get all psyched up about my new beginning. Hell – I didn’t even make the time to list them, so chances are I won’t even be able to achieve them.

My point is – and I think so many mothers and fathers out there will agree – we’re literally kicking butt by making it through every single day with all the other responsibilities that life throws our way. We should all give ourselves a huge pat on the back, maybe treat ourselves to some fatty Hershey Pie for making it this far, going through each day like a fighter and being amazing parents. So to all those who are in my shoes; who feel like they have the weight of the world on their shoulders, from juggling a dzillion things from managing to make a career and a living, to changing diapers and folding through endless piles of laundry – you are doing an awesome job. WE are doing an awesome job. Lets keep doing it the way know best and don’t bother by anything or anyone else.

The Grandparents Frame by JOHNSON’S® Baby

This is by far the best and most meaningful campaign I’ve seen on a long time. Johnson’s Baby launched the ‘Grandparents Frame’ initiative to help bring grandparents closer to their grand children.

Because so many grandparents live far away, some of them don’t get to see their precious little ones for years on end. We all know what a grand child means to a grandparent; my father for instance only smiles when there’s a mention of Yehia and would do anything to make sure that Yehia is well and happy. However, many grandparents aren’t very connected to social media platforms, nor do they get the hang of all the latest tech tools.

So what Johnson did is that they introduced a digital photo frame that you gift to your moms and dads that also pairs up with your smart phone. Everytime you snap a photo of your little one, you can send it directly to their device and then they get a glimpse of their precious grandchildren and watch them grow. 

I love how thoughtful this idea is and how much joy it can bring to a family.

Watch this video, but keep a tissue box within arms reach because I got teary and emotional.
