This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dr Pepper®. The opinions and text are all mine.
Dr Pepper wants you to appreciate the Wonder Woman in your life and has asked me to share my story. I was excited when Dr Pepper wanted to partner with me because this is an easy topic for me to discuss. My Wonder Woman might come as a surprise to many of you because she’s only 7. Actually, she turns 8 in May! My daughter, Brielle, amazes me on a daily basis, and is very deserving of the title “Wonder Woman” – even as a little girl.
To inspire you to think about the #WonderWoman in your life, you can find Wonder Woman-themed Dr Pepper packaging available at your local Walmart. Whether you’re a fan of regular Dr Pepper, Diet Dr Pepper, Dr Pepper Cherry, or Diet Dr Pepper Cherry you can find themed Dr Pepper beverages to celebrate the release of Wonder Woman in theaters June 2nd.
Let me tell you why my little girl, Miss Bea as I often call her, is so special to me. Brielle is my youngest and she has three big brothers who don’t always treat her like the princess she is. I sure love my boys and they crack me up and keep life entertaining, but my girl has such a huge heart. She is always thinking of others and how she can help brighten someone else’s day. I’m constantly in awe at how thoughtful and giving such a small person can be.
Children are typically self-centered – it’s their nature, right? Of course Bea has her moments and the occasional meltdown, but rarely does a day go by where she doesn’t ask what she can do for me. Beyond that, Bea doesn’t always ask, but will surprise me with a glass of ice water, a hot rice sock for my tight neck and shoulders, and even provides me with foot rubs. I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge what a lucky mom I am to have such a loving daughter who is always thinking of others.
Not only does my girl serve me regularly, but she frequently does things for her brothers without being asked. She surprises her brothers by cleaning their room and making their lunches for them. Would you believe Brielle says she actually enjoys cleaning? How did I get so lucky? My husband and I joke that our daughter, although the youngest, is often our most responsible child. If only her brothers would listen to her, we could leave Bea in charge and not worry about coming home to a trashed house and chaos.
I sometimes have to remind Brielle to relax and go have some fun because I don’t want her to grow up worrying about everyone else all the time. She is so creative and is great at entertaining herself, which is truly a gift of her own. She’s very artistic and can turn anything into something magical. What I often think is trash (and have thrown away), she pulls out and turns it into something amazing. Because she is nearing 8, I just started teaching Brielle to play the piano – a day I’ve been longing to reach, and I enjoy every minute of it. The time I get to sit down and share my gift of music with my little girl, and to see her grow to love music as much as me, is such a treasure. Finally someone to play duets with!
Something that makes Brielle so unbelievably special is how intuitive and loving she is. She’s always concerned for others’ pains and wants to help in any way she can. I can only imagine the woman Miss Bea is going to grow up to be. This girl is going to conquer the world and I am so privileged to be her mother. I only hope I can continue to encourage her in ways that will only help her flourish even more.
I would love to hear who your Wonder Woman is, and why! The Wonder Woman movie hits theaters on June 2nd so I’d say take your Wonder Woman and make a date of it!
