When a baby is born, a dad is born. This Father’s Day, Pampers celebrates that incredible feeling little ones bring to the hearts of dads through unconditional love.
I think I’m a pretty good dad… I try to gut check things but while there are books written on being a dad, its still all gut. Without Suzanne in my corner, I’m really not sure I’d be half the dad I am today without her loving support. First Suzanne gave me the best gift in the world of be coming a dad… Here are the first shots from the hospital bed of Marc being held by Suzanne after he was born.
I wasnt always a comfortable in those first few weeks… I’m not sure many first time dads are comfortable. I remember the bris, first I was a nervous wreck… dozens of friends and family members in a room celebrating the birth of my son and well the actions that are done during a bris. Suzanne was nervous (maybe the only one more so than me)… but she was a champ… me on the other hand I didnt have a clue… I got to take the first photo of four generations, my son, my father, and my grandfather in a photo. Since this photo was taken my grandfather has passed on, but thankfully he was able to see me grow into the man I am today… see his 3 great grandchildren and know that Marc got to know him.
Fatherhood is a journey… hopefully you grow and learn things about yourself, about the world around you, maybe when it comes time for homework maybe a new trick or two (if you have any for common core – I’m all ears)….
On this father’s day remember… we all were nervous, we all made mistakes, we all have stuff to deal with… but on this one day of the year hopefully you can block some of that out and just enjoy being a dad. Cause the time really does fly… in a blink of a year its almost been 9 years.
Pampers has released a new #ThanksBaby video that captures the amazing relationship that is created between a dad and his baby when a baby is born and the beautiful journey of fatherhood begins.
Pampers honors dads for just being dads and thanks them for all the amazing things, big and small, they do to help little ones have a better, loving, more fulfilling life.
Please join us by tweeting why you are most thankful for baby with the hashtag #ThanksBaby.

With Father’s day quickly approaching I know there are a bunch of people trying to figure out what to get dad… so here’s a round up of gifts from GameStop that almost any gamer or comic book loving dad would enjoy.
At The Honest Company’s summer 2016 product launch we spoke with co-founder and Chief Product Officer Christoper Gavigan. Christopher is a dad of 4, lives out in California and has dedicated the last 10 years of his life to making this earth a better place.
You know by now I love Dove Men+Care, so when Mirum Shopper sponsored me to talk about shopping at BJ’s for Father’s Day and their great selection of Dove Men+Care it was easy to say yes and give you 100% my own opinions.
First start shopping at BJ’s it has saved me a TON of money. You get way more for your dollar at that store then traditional supermarkets. To help with you shopping at BJ’s on the dadarocks facebook page I’m giving away a 1 year membership to BJ’s wholesale club!
Now we all know that most Dads are heroes to their children and Dove Men+Care did it again by making the perfect Father’s Day commercial celebrating that fact.
This year care for the Hero In Dad this Father’s Day by giving him Dove Men + Care items from BJ’s Wholesale Clubhouse by giving dad something new to try… Dove Men + Care is made to help him look and feel his best. My quick tip: Use the Dove Men+Care after shave balm its life altering, if you’ve never tried it before.
