I can’t think of a single mom I know who doesn’t worry. Is my son too shy? Will that leave a scar? Am I volunteering in the classroom enough? What am I going to make for dinner since I didn’t get to the store again? Are my kids fighting too much? Should I have let them watch that extra cartoon today? How are his pants already too short again? The list of everyday concerns feels never ending.
So imagine if, How will I pay for diapers? was on that list.
Not, Oh man, how did I not realize I was down to five diapers and now I have to run to Target again for the third time this week. Ugh, how will I find the time? No.
Not, Can you believe she grew out of size 3 when I have a brand new pack and now I have to buy size 4s…these things aren’t cheap. No.
But, How will I pay for diapers?
Honestly, I never really thought about the fact that I’ve never once had to worry about the answer to this until I met Lisa from Help A Mother Out. And this Mother’s Day week, she and her organization are doing their best to ensure other moms won’t have to either. The hope is that with one less basic thing to worry about, these moms will be able to move forward and create a better life for those babies. Just like Katelyn has. I hope you’ll take a minute or two to hear her story of hope.
If you’re inspired to give a gift this Mother’s Day, click here to learn more. And if you have diapers the little tushies in your home have outgrown, please consider donating them to one of the Help A Mother Out drop off locations. (If you live near me, I’m happy to add them to my collection and I’ll drop them off at Day One soon!)
Happy Mother’s Day to each of you! May it be as worry free as possible (then again, we are moms).
