I wrote about my experience with Poise Microliner as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #PoisewithSAM
As the years go on, my daughter seems to think I’m less and less “cool” and more often than not, I’m just “mommy, you don’t get it!!” I swear I thought I had at least 6 more years before this happened! Well, it’s here and it’s now, so I try to show ways that mommy does get it and mommy is cool. Well, kinda cool anyway.
1. Be a little Bold… in lipstick and in life.
I always had this thing against wearing red lipstick. I was always afraid of sticking out my already full lips and having my lips and I be the focus of attention. I realized all it took was the right red and it transformed me to be bold, bright and…don’t I look cool? Heck yes. Red lips- try it.
2. Always be prepared.
OK, so this doesn’t sound cool, but trust me… it is. You see, this mom is always on the go and the last thing you ever want while traveling to and fro and trying to look cool is a leaky bladder. Poise helps me look cool while also keeping me dry. It’s itty bitty, so no one can tell you’re wearing it. Try it out yourself with this free Poise sample and thank me later.
3. Know when to act a little goofy…
Us moms can get a bad rap. We’re the rule makers, the ones that make everyone get up on time, eat their veggies and send everyone off to bed. But this mama knows that sometimes, you gotta get goofy or, you gotta get your “Ears” on!
4. Expect the unexpected….and unusual
5. Always Be There…
No matter what, whether your kid thinks you’re cool or not, the coolest thing you can do as a parent is just be there. They aren’t always grin filled ad joyous, but just being there is enough to show you care.
My daughter may never think I’m a cool mom, but maybe, just maybe, with these 5 tips. she’ll be less mortified to hang with me. Maybe.
