I felt the magic of SAM with Poise® Microliners as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #LifesLittleLeaks. All opinions are my own.
It’s the holidays and stress levels are to the max. My life has changed so much over the years of parenting. With my first I was so adamant that everything fell into place. These days, I realize how quickly they grow and how much those moments with them are missed. I’m learning to laugh out loud–and after a handful of kids, it’s not always flattering to my bladder.
I’ve learned to go with the flow of things–more or less.
When an opportunity for a celebration arises, I want to be ready, living the moment. Like when we visited my sister and all the cousins were meeting for the first time. We gathered around the firepit and then someone suggested marshmallows and before long it was a moment of imagination as everyone roasted pretend marshmallows and dreamt of s’mores!
I’ve learned to accept what I cannot change.
Like the time, when we were getting ready to fly home from the holidays and everyone was dressed for the plane. My last, exact words, were, “DO NOT GET DIRTY!”
Within a few moments all of the cousins, and all but one of my children were in the house, quiet as a mouse. A headcount had me asking, “Where’s Miss M?” to which all heads turned to the lake.
I ventured towards the lake to discover my daughter, like this:
That’s right. Covered in MUD! Her shoes were soaked through to her socks. Her jeans a murky vision. Her white shirt splashed with soggy dirt. I could have been mad. There was a time when that seemed like the only possible action, but instead, I just started laughing. I laughed hard. Miss M thought I’d lost my mind. She whimpered, “I didn’t mean to, Mom!”
I knew this.
She had fallen out of the boat trying to get on to dry land.
I just kept laughing and gave her a hug and said, “You’re the last little stinker I thought I’d have to worry about!”
I use to hold back on the loud, spontaneous laughter. I have an issue with bladder leaks. It’s normal, I’ve had a bushel of kiddos and, like every other muscle in my body, this one is weak too!
I’m keeping my laughter loud thanks to Poise Microliners. I love these discreet LBL protection lineers that keep me dry and comfortable all day long. They aren’t bulky like a diaper or those crazy hospital after-delivery pads. I appreciate thin–it’s something I’m not–and to see such a tiny pad hold so much is incredible and let’s me laugh out loud with confidence!
One in three women experience LBL. These little leaks can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughin and exercise. I’m the one in three and I rely on the shockingly thin and surprising absorbent Poise Microliners feature SAM (Super Absorbent Material) to help women manage life’s little leaks with confidence.
Poise Microliners give me the confidence I need to not sweat the little stuff, like when my son insists on a double chocolate dipped cone in the dead heat of North Carolina’s summer and he can’t eat it fast enough and we stop at a light and look over and see this—
I know I can laugh out loud. Live in the moment and not worry about my bladder leaking.
These days, I’m enjoying motherhood a whole lot more. I’m more confident in myself. I’m more aware of how little I have with them as “little” and I’m not going to waste it on holding my joy in. I have POISE and I’m ready to kick back with my Diet Coke and let life happen!
