I'm a Booger and I Just Got Picked

I have some happy news to share. I've been picked! I will be participating in the Moms for Cottonelle campaign! WOO HOO! I, along with 49 other moms, have partnered with Cottonelle to serve as brand ambassadors.

About the booger thing - I apologize for sharing it in such a gross way. Sometimes gross is just funny and borderline cute.  I know this because I am mommy to a three year old boy who proudly marches up to me when he scores an awesome booger after carefully picking his nose.  Some of you will know EXACTLY what I mean!  With a boogie on the tip of his little finger, and a proudly excited look on his little face, I get this: "LOOK! I got a BOOGER mommy!".  Hearing that happy little voice, and seeing that beaming smile on his face, it would be a shame for me to squash it all by saying EWW....GROSS! Instead, I say: Oooh... Let's go show Daddy! Don't worry we don't do this in public!

I'm a mommy now - so I am comfortable about talking about this kind of stuff. Next up I'll be discussing bathroom business!  Perfect timing as we are perfecting the potty with our little guy! Fun stuff! Stay tuned.

My little booger!
Now back to the Moms for Cottonelle campaign. This is a campaign comprised of mom bloggers in support of Cottonelle's "be kind to your behind" campaign. You've seen the commercials, right? HILARIOUS! We are 50 moms strong and led by campaign manager Dino Dogan. We were "hand picked" (giggle) out of 300+ influencers. Even before the campaign launched we've already been having fun!

I just wanted to share my excitement with as much fervor as my young son! Sorry if it sounds "braggy" but being picked made me feel proud and excited! Just like my boy! If you read my blog then you know how bummed I was when I didn't get picked for the 10K step 30 Day Challenge so being picked for THIS has me overjoyed! I'm no longer bummed! Instead I will be talking Bums! Oh what fun!


 
 I am a brand ambassador for Cottonelle. All opinions are my own.

    1. Courtney - thanks! I got picked. My mind works in an odd way... I hear (read) the word "picked", and I can't help but think of picking boogers. Crazy. When you said "sucks you right in" I immediately pictured snot suckers (nasal aspirators)...OH BOY! What's WRONG with me? LOL.

  15. I'm not going to lie, when I read "I got picked" the first thing that popped in my head was, "You can pick your friends, you can pick your seat, but you can't pick your friend's seat"! Haha, gotta love where our minds go as moms, right? ;)
