I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Little Remedies. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
I’m sure you have heard the old saying, “Less is More.” Now that I have become a mom, I am finding that to be very true. My 3 year old son enjoys doing fun activities and events, but I find the more work I put into these things, the more frustrated/overwhelmed we all are. He is just as happy going to the park (free) than he is going to an indoor bounce house ($$) or some other extravagant thing.
Because my son loves life no matter how much effort I put into things, I am going to start living by the Little Remedies “Say Yes to Less” mantra. No more stressing over planning events that I feel need to be grand and colorful when he would be just as content with a simpler approach. This also works with areas of our family, not just entertainment.
Take distractions, for example. I am horrible when it comes to telling my son, “One moment, Mommy needs to check her email” or “Just a second, baby, I’m checking my Facebook…” It’s become worse as technology advances, and since he is only young once, I need to put down the technology and focus my undivided attention on him (and soon his little brother) more often.
So, here is my Little Remedies pledge to less distractions!
When it comes to medications, cleaning products, and other items, we have been saying yes to less since our son was born. I have become more aware of what we are giving him or putting in our home surrounding him. Little Remedies is focused on all-natural ingredients, which I love when my kiddo is sick and needs something to help give his immune system a boost.
I encourage you to take the pledge as well. For each pledge that is taken, Little Remedies is donating $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This wonderful organization makes it possible for children to have their biggest wishes fulfilled!
Could you say less to distractions, sugar, waste, or negativity? Take the pledge for yourself and your family!
