The Princess Dress #DadsWay

tide_downy_bottlesI know sooo many dads that dress up their little princess in the same dresses daily.  Between the tea parties and just running around playing soccer in their little princess dress…. its those moments that make daddy daughter time great!

What are those moments in your life? I want to hear about them – leave a comment here – go on twitter use hashtag #DadsWay

Everyone has a story that describes how his or her dad is truly unique. If you would like to help Tide and Downy celebrate dad’s way this month, go tell a story about your dad on Twitter using the hashtag #DadsWay. For every tweet sent out using #DadsWay, Tide and Downy will donate $1 to the National Fatherhood Initiative.

These days with a baby at home we’re using Tide Free & Gentle which is dye and perfume-free. It removes more residue from dirt, food, and stains than the leading free detergent so they say… I’m pretty happy with the level of clean we’re getting on all those spit up on baby clothes.

So I loved this movie! My Son loved this movie (he’s 4.5years old) we saw the 3D version and it was some great 3D that had him standing up at points trying to catch some of the 3D effects.

Why did I love this movie – it was a very cute story about a family and really that centers around the father. Grug is a total caveman…. but he’s the protector the strong guy.  It’ll bring a tear to your eye when you watch the movie… The movie is great about making you laugh the whole way through.  The relationship between Grug and his Mother-in-Law makes you giggle but the heart of the story is Grug having to deal with Eep growing up.

I really think this was one of the best Dreamworks Animated movies ever! The movie has an amazing cast of voices and even cuter characters who I hope ends up with their own spinoff cartoons – keep you eyes on Belt truly one of the funniest characters in this movie.

IMG_3977-resized-600If you dont possibly think this movie could be amazing for dads – I’ll prove it to you that the National Fatherhood Initiative gave Grug an award.

Take the family and go see this movie and if try to tell me you dont come out saying…
