Me: Gwen, alam mo kung anong song yung may lyrics na “…I’ll be there to save the day…”. Hahanapin ko kasi sa Spotify eh.
Gwen: One Call Away po, meron po ako sa tablet ko…
The inevitable just happened, I woke up one morning and the baby I just held in my arms yesterday is now 5 years old. Jeff and I often tells this story to Gwen, that when she’s still a baby, we wished that she’s big enough to talk and walk so that we’ll know why she cried, what she did, etc… But now we would tell her otherwise… that we miss her being a baby, we miss carrying her, I miss waking up at night to breastfeed, etc.
Before, we watched Peppa Pig, Charlie and Lola, and other nursery rhymes on YouTube. Now, she requested me to make her own YouTube channel. Shopping for her clothes will take forever because there will be debates between Mommy’s style, Daddy’s style, and her style, guess who won?
At the recent Safeguard Pure White Body Wash event, I was reminded again what big kids can do. They can read maps and know their way home, they can tie their own shoe laces, and they can choose their own OOTD.
Ever since Gwen started to go to school, she became more and more independent. I also have to give credit to her school, it’s a progressive and church-based one that has a really holistic approach. I’ve seen improvements in Gwen’s social and emotional skills. She also gained confidence to say what she wants and thinks.
I know in my heart that as she gains independence and her world is getting bigger and bigger to explore, I have to slowly let her go.
Bigger horizon to explore entails bigger protection too. Baby washes for my big kid just don’t cut it, that’s why just like the entire family, she is now on Safeguard. It is trusted by moms and recommended by health experts for over 50 years.
Safeguard now has Pure White Body Wash that provides the superior germ protection and also maintains the skin’s natural moisture shield. When a person’s skin is dry, it is a sign that this moisture shield has been damaged. Invisible to the naked eye, this dry and cracked skin makes it easier for harmful germs to attach to your skin more easily. Safeguard Pure White Body Wash removes germs and prevents the regrowth of germs — all with a formula that is dermatologically tested to be as gentle as water.
I thought Gwen will not like using the body wash because it’s not pink and its packaging is not cute unlike most kiddie soaps and body washes are. But she enjoys using it and loves the rich lather (Gwen calls it bubbles) even if she just squeezed a small amount in the bath lily.
I think I found another reason for me to happy about Gwen being a big kid, that means savings for me not buying another baby soap because the whole family can count on Safeguard Pure White Body Wash.
Safeguard Pure White Body Wash is available in 720ml (PhP 219), 400ml (PhP 145) and 200ml (PhP 85)
