When I became a Father for the first time back in 2009 (on our 10th Wedding Anniversary!), I entered into the job without much by way of expectation. I was excited to be a Dad, but there wasn’t any real or definitive outlook for how the experience would actually be. I didn’t enter into Fatherhood with the “fear” that some seem to put forth, nor did I have any grand plans for how those first days would be. Sure, there was preparation (and a lot of nesting), but I steered clear of the parenting books, and somehow managed to miss the fact that “Parent Blogging” was even a thing.
What I’m saying, is that my wife and I entered into parenthood by winging it. Actually, she was probably better-prepared than I.
With Fall comes new Fashion for the little ones, and today my friends at gDiapers have officially unveiled their Fall 2013 Collection of super-cute eco-friendly diaper covers and matching outfits. As in the past, gDiapers and The Rock Father are celebrating the new release with a rockin' giveaway. We're giving parents a chance to WIN their choice of the gLotus Dress and gPants, or the gVeggie Tee and gPants!
Father's Day is a special day for me, not because we "need" a holiday to celebrate being a Dad (I do that every day), but because of the significance that this weekend will forever hold for us personally here at Rock Father HQ. It was two years ago today that I flipped the switch on this website and posted my first entry as THE ROCK FATHER. While this site celebrates it's 2nd Anniversary, this weekend also marks my 4th Father's Day as a Dad, and more importantly, the 1st Birthday of my youngest daughter, who turned one yesterday. Yep, she rocks so hard that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian had to copy us and pop out their little one on June 15 as well.
Summer in America - time to break out the Red, White and Blue, get outside and enjoy the great outdoors, and have some fun with the family in the pursuit of happiness. In the spirit of summer, I've once again teamed up with my bum-covering friends at gDiapers - the makers of adorable cloth diaper covers with disposable, biodegradable (in home composts) inserts - for another giveaway. This time around, we're giving you a chance to score the all-new Grandstand Stripe gPants for your little rocker!
The good folks over at gDiapers are launching their 2013 line of Spring gStyle this morning, a collection of super-cute coordinated tops and bottoms for boys and girls. If you're not familiar with gDiapers, they're a popular line of adorable diaper covers with biodegradable disposable inserts. They rock, and I dig 'em.
Calling all gMoms and gDads, or anyone interested in more eco-friendly diapering options for their little ones. The folks over at gDiapers have just launched their limited-edtion Global Love gPants, "a soft vanilla diaper cover artistically designed with 'fill the world with love' in blues and greens, colors reminiscent of our planet." The gPants from gDiapers are super-cute diaper covers with 100% biodegradable* disposable inserts. Look at the new one below.
