If you would have told me that Iโ€™d be parenting a pre-teen so soon I would not have believed you! โฃ

One of the things that we talk about often is how thankful we are even in the midst of COVID-19. โฃ

โฃ

We are thankful because for some, this season presents challenges for girls in obtaining their basic necessities. โฃ

โฃ

This Fall, Always continues their mission to show girls they are#SupportedAlwaysby starting with a donation of 4 million pads and by partnering with various experts to create virtual activities that can help girls grow in confidence, wherever they are. โฃ

โฃ

The global pandemic has brought about all kinds of insecurities. โฃ

โฃ

A recent study conducted by โฃ

@Always_brand revealed that, since the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 1 in 3 young people feel less confident because theyโ€™ve missed after school activities and nearly 1 out of 3 parents are worried about their ongoing ability to afford period products - an issue known as period poverty.โฃ

โฃ

When you purchase a pack of Always pads@cvspharmacyyou will spark a pad donation to Feeding America network of food banks! โฃ

โฃ


In addition to grabbing a pack of Always, join Lyric and I every Wednesday for the#SupportedAlwaysInstagram Live sessions. โฃ

โฃ

These sessions will help girls continue to stay involved in the activities they love. โฃ

โฃ

For everyone who joins or watches a session, Always will donate a monthโ€™s supply of period products, up to half a million products, via our partner@womenssportsfoundation, who is helping girls stay active all over the country!โฃ


Lyric my 12 year old has been the best big sister a mom could dream of.. Iโ€™m so thankful for her stepping in from time to time to just love on the little ones so that I can zero in on things that wonโ€™t get done without me. โฃ

โฃ

I asked her why she was being extra sweet.. she said โ€œoh itโ€™s Because I love you mom.. and oh mom thereโ€™s this video game that I want from GameStop that ....โ€ โฃ
