I’m sitting here, reflecting on my 6th year of fatherhood, attempting to choose my favorite moment. I can’t define any one specific memory. I’m sad, but proud. It’s been a fantastic year.
So maybe I share the moment I cried this weekend.
Rhys loves his Jake and the Neverland Pirates show. It’s one of the few television programs that captures his attention. Rightfully so – Jake is cool!
We knew we wanted to do something around Disney this year (for vacation) and had heard character appearances at the resorts were difficult to manage. Based on several recommendations, we booked a Disney cruise.
Fast forward and there he was, day two of our vacation, in all his pirate-y goodness. Jake turned a corner and caught my youngest’s eyes. His joy was almost too much to handle, a smile from ear-to-ear and a deep blush overcame him. It had become apparent that Rhys was meeting his hero. I had to duck away to wipe my tears.
These are moments I live for. I want my kids to always be their happiest. I want to always support them no matter the hurdle. To me… this is the true power of dad.
When it comes to being a dad, it’s the little moments that power the biggest smiles. So this Father’s Day, Oral-B is celebrating fatherhood’s little moments and the dads that bring smiles to their families every day. Here is an excellent video about the #PowerofDad.
In their second year of their Father’s Day program, P&G Oral Care has partnered with March of Dimes, a leading organization for healthy, happy families that celebrates mothers and fathers every day. P&G Oral Care is also joining forces with members of “Football’s First Family,” New York Giants’ quarterback Eli Manning, his father Archie and his daughter Ava – to celebrate fatherhood’s little moments.
Give dad the special gift of a beautiful, healthy smile this Father’s Day with an Oral-B power brush with a $7-off coupon. Engineered to perform, the new Oral-B 7000 BLACK is Oral-B’s most technologically advanced and sophisticated brush yet. It’s the stylish, sleek, precision-engineered gift for the gadget obsessed guy.
I partnered with Oral-B and Life of Dad, LLC for the #PowerofDad Father’s Day promotion and was compensated for my involvement.
