Introducing goumikids! Learn their Story, and Enter for a Chance to Win a Newborn Starter Kit!

I'm always intrigued by, and in some cases bummed that a lot of the new baby products weren't around when I could actually use them for my own girls. Even in the jumps between the release of our first daughter in 2009 and the sequel in 2012, there was so much cool stuff that didn't exist just three years prior, and here I sit with my youngest now two, and it's really set-in that my days of having a "baby" in my life are over. But, for those of you that are just entering your parenting adventure (or perhaps starting a new chapter in it), goumikids is a new player on the scene - a Portland-based company founded by two Moms (Lili Yeo and Linsey Ebuen), longtime friends on a mission to improve the lives of not only those around them - but Global residents as well.

Celebrity Trainer Nikki Glor & Huggies Little Movers - Cool Tips for Parent & Baby (plus a Giveaway)!

As I'm currently in the midst of my personal Fitness Challenge this year (down 25 lbs) and have Little Finley still in diapers, I was bummed to miss an event I was invited to in Chicago last week - one where Celebrity Fitness Trainer (and Mom) Nikki Glor and Huggies Little Movers were set to show off some cool moves for parents and their "Little Movers" alike. But there is a silver lining! Huggies and Nikki have provided me with the details on three new exercises to share with all of you here on THE ROCK FATHER - each containing benefits for baby, mom or dad, and from Huggies Little Movers.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star - LULLABY HITS OF 2014 Released!

When it comes to lullabies, there is no company more prolific than Roma Music Group and their TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR series. They've released over 160 albums worth of baby-friendly jams for the nursery, each re-working a popular artist (or a collection of them) into "lush instrumental" versions. While we've just reached the halfway point of 2014, they've just released LULLABY HITS OF 2014 (Amazon | iTunes), which I'd sorta venture is probably "Volume 1," and by year's end a sequel will be released - just a hunch. But if you're looking for something a little different for your baby's sonic indulgence, check this out...

Bathtime is Bonding Time for Parents and Kids #AveenoDad #RockFathersDay

“THE ROCK FATHER is participating in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for AVEENO. He received product samples and a promotional item for participating.”

Bathtime is a special time for bonding between all parents and their children. Here at Rock Father HQ, truth be told - bathtime is usually my wife's time with the girls. Since I'm fortunate to be in a position where I get to spend nearly all day every day with the little ones, 8pm generally signals some time for my wife and The Rock Daughters to have some time to splash and play. But that hardly means that Bathtime isn't Daddy time as well. I've given many baths in these past five years, and often times it's when my wife is going to have a long day at work, and I want to get the girls bathed and ready for bed in advance of her arrival.
