Every time a baby is born, a dad is born… #ThanksBaby

I have partnered with Life of Dad and Pampers for this promotion.

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.

Happy Father’s Day from Pampers #ThanksBaby

cb4000I sat with Chris Pegula who created Diaper Dude who also is on the Pampers Baby Board.  Part of being on the board is from time to time we’re asked to host special giveaways like this one for Father’s Day.

Pampers wanted to say Happy Father’s Day and create this heart warming #ThanksBaby video. So I asked Chris whats Father’s Days like in his home and give us some tips.

True-DudeIn my household I’m usually the one excited about giving rather than receiving gifts. So when it comes to Father’s Day, it’s a bit challenging to figure out what I need. But if there are dad’s out there like me, then these 3 tips are sure to satisfy the dad who has it all.

I love family time. As my kids are getting older I find we have less and less time to spend together. So come Father’s Day I really appreciate a morning breakfast with my wife and three kids. Be it a simple cup of coffee with yogurt and fruit or scrambled eggs and an English muffin. It’s not about what I’m eating it’s about   the company. Take the time to start the day off right…together.

If you find that breakfast goes smoothly and your little or big ones are in a good mood, a nice stroll around the neighborhood with the kids and dog in tow is another top choice I would appreciate on this special day. Again spending time one on one with those that mean the most to me really fills my heart. So often we are rushing to get the kids to school or daycare or what have you. A day of simply hanging out and taking it all in is a dream. We all need to reboot at some point so why not make it a day that honors you?

Finally, grab a notebook and title the page I love you because. Take the time to share with your wife and kids why you love them and let them share why they love you. You will really appreciate what they have to say. When your finished you have a keepsake that is worth way more than that ol’ coffee mug or silk tie and socks. Meaningful gifts are those that come from the heart in my book. Why add waste when you can gain experience and moments you’ll remember for years to come.

Here’s to a Father’s Day filled with Peace and Love!
