On Nov. 16, beloved singer, songwriter, children’s book author and new mom, Jewel, gave fans a “behind-the-scenes” glimpse at the singer’s Texas ranch home as shared with them her most cherished beautiful morning moments as a mother with her 14-month-old son, Kase.
The star partnered with Pampers to pay homage to the “Millions of Beautiful Morning Moments” and to engage parents and tiny tots across the nation in an exclusive acoustic sing-along and “live” reading of her recently released children’s book, “That’s What I’d Do.” The interactive session was held exclusively on Pampers Facebook page.
She also shared her favorite beautiful moments of being a mom. Here is what she had to say….
”I’m excited to partner with Pampers to celebrate beautiful mornings. The morning is my favorite time with my baby. I thought it was just me and Kase. I just thought, ‘Wow, Kase is always in a great mood in the morning.’ Then I talked to other moms and realized its every moms favorite time with their baby. It’s something kind of magical – they are just in a good mood, they got a great nights sleep and it’s just fun to hang out with them.”
ON HER MOST BEAUTIFUL MORNING
“One of my favorite morning moments with Kase is getting to read with him. It’s amazing to me how one day to the next he’ll learning something new.”
ON SPECIAL MILESTONES WITH HER BABY
”There’s the big ones. The first time he smiled. And the first time he was able to sing a note back to me back. It amazed me.”
”My best advice for parents trying to balance life and busy schedules is to try and cut yourselves some slack. As parents we hold ourselves to high standards and I think we’re always worried and we feel guilty like we’re not doing enough. All you can do is the best you can. As long as you love your kids and give them that stability, then they’re pretty accommodating.”
“My Thanksgiving Day plans are pretty mellow. I think we’re going to order food in. I think we’re not even going to cook. There’s a great place in town that make home-cooked Thanksgiving Day meals, so I think we’re going to have an easy one. We might even do paper plates!”
