Last week, Becky emailed me this song, with a little note that said “Happy (almost) Father’s Day. Thanks to you for making me a mom and thanks to ALL of our babies for making you a dad.”
Today I want to thank our babies (even though they aren’t really babies anymore) for making me a dad. 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 have partnered with Life of Dad and Pampers for this promotion.
Here are 10 things that I never thought I would do, before I had kids
1- Eat a meal in under a minute, standing.
2- Cheer when someone burped.
3- Let my kids watch more than 20 minutes of TV a day.
4- Become something that I wasn’t…
This #ThanksBaby video by Pampers pretty much says it all: it captures the amazing relationship that is created between a dad and his baby when a baby is born… I knew that I had to share it because it shows the wonderful journey of fatherhood begins.
5- Talking about myself in third person: “Daddy loves you!”
6- Talk about my kids to everyone that I meet (“Look. Look at this one. This is where he put spaghetti on his head and laughed for like five minutes)
7- Feel the need to announce that I was going to take a shower… and then announce it again… and then ask everyone “Where am I going to be if anyone needs me?”
9- Read the same story 40 times.
10- Love anyone as much as I love our kids.
That’s why I like working with Pampers. They honor 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.
Join me by tweeting why you are most thankful for baby with the hashtag #ThanksBaby.
