I’ve always called myself “Mama Bear” to my kids because I’ve always explained to them that they’re my little cubs to protect. As their mom, it’s my job, my duty and my passion to protect my kids as much as I possibly can in life. It’s a maternal instinct, one that moms know well. My kids are my life, my heart, my everything… so protecting them is my everything, too.
The amazing and incredible thing about life is that that protective instinct is a universal truth of motherhood – in the animal kingdom and in our own. Different species demonstrate amazing feats to protect their young…including (yes, us!) human mothers. Lysol is celebrating a mother’s natural protective instinct by honoring that a mother’s first priority is always the safety of her children – whether she is a bear, a monkey, or a person!
An important way that human moms protect their families is by preventing the spread of harmful germs in the home. With 5 kids, this is definitely something that’s always top of mind for me at home. No one protects loved ones quite like mom and no one protects families like Lysol. Lysol is a leader in germ kill for 100+ years, they offer products that kill 99.9% of germs to help moms protect their kids from passing germs and getting sick. This winter was a tough one for our family on the cough and cold front (let me toss 2 rounds of Strep in there, too!), so I was constantly using Lysol spray and disinfectant wipes around the house to prevent the spread of germs.
This weekend (5/20 and 5/21) at Brooklyn Bridge Plaza in New York, Lysol has opened an open air, pop-up installation with larger-than-life animal structures to celebrate the protective instincts of motherhood.
We had some fun exploring the exhibit and really taking it all in! I loved being there with my own little cubs, they made it that much more special for me! As I said, I’m their “Mama Bear!”
Alex called me a Tiger because I’m Savage! I loved it because I had my savage tee on!!
It started to rain, but as you can tell – these kids didn’t mind!
