A Fathers Day Reflection #PowerOfDad
Being a Dad is what I wanted to be when I grew up and it is one of the greatest gifts I have ever received. It did not come easy. Our oldest was conceived via In Vitro Fertilization and my younger two were both adopted. At the time we were “trying”, I always like Why Me? Now, everyday I SMILE and say thank you for choosing me!
Moment number 1 is something my oldest son said recently. When asked if his new friends go to Walt Disney World, he said “No, even though they have passes it’s a privilege.” My wife asked “Is it not a privilege for you?” and he responded “No, we have Daddy and he is ready to go any time we say we want to go.” While I may be a grown up, I love knowing that my children can see the fun loving side of me and know that I want nothing more than to make memories with them.
Moment number 3 involves my Princess. She knows how to push all the right buttons and pull all the right heart strings. Next to my wife, she is probably the best date I’ve ever had. Whether it be our first Daddy/Daughter dance, our Daddy/Daughter day at Disney Hollywood Studios to meet Doc McStuffins or the two of us going to meet Anna and Elsa from Frozen. All were great memories, but none as great as when she and I are in the car blaring the radio. Who would have thought I’d know every One Direction song, but I do and I credit my Princess for that and wouldn’t have it any other way.
My crew is truly special and making memories is key for me. Along with all of the wonderful memories, they also bring out the best in my “Dad Brain”. I’ll be the first to admit I’m not the handiest or most analytical Dad to walk the earth. Dad Brain, for those that may not be aware, is when my kids present me with a problem or scenario that truly seems to have no answer or solution, and all of a sudden the perfect response pops into my head. It doesn’t last long, but it’s a miracle when it happens. One of those Dad Brain moments was teaching my kids to be responsible about brushing their teeth. Instead of filling their stockings with candy, they were gifted with brand new Oral-B toothbrushes. With all of the bells and whistles they were super excited and just got a great report on their last dental checkup. Dad Brain at it’s best!
This Father’s Day, Oral-B is supporting the #PowerofDad by showcasing those moments most important to dads. Those moments where the Power of Dad brings out those smiles we all love to see and well, makes memories.
