THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Review: SoCozy Salon-Quality Hair Care Products for Kids #SoCozyBTS

I'd like to think that when it comes to those "dad stereotypes" that are out there, I tend to not fit the bill. There is one, however, that I will fully admit to being a part of: I am a purveyor of "Dad Hair." I'm also not proud of that fact, yet my own hair has often been unruly over the years. I've had it gloriously long - did the 90s shoulder-length thing for awhile, and currently have it short and a little bit rockin'. I also once sported a dreaded mullet back in 1993. That's another fact that I'm not proud of, but I assure you it was a very fashionable, and somewhat enviable style in Iowa back then. Now, with two daughters, I often find myself serving as their stylist, and the results have thus far been mixed. With Back-to-School in full-effect, I've added some new tools to my arsenal with an assortment of SoCozy salon-quality hair care products for kids, several of which were sent to Rock Father HQ for me to put to the test... complete with COZY'S COMPLETE GUIDE TO GIRLS' HAIR.

Giveaway: Win a 4moms mamaRoo Infant Seat from PishPoshBaby!

I'm still impressed at how far baby products come in such a short period of time. Five years and two kids into this whole "parenting" thing, and the new products out now often trump what my wife and I had for our girls just a few years ago, and one example is the 4moms mamaRoo - an infant seat that blows away typical "bouncers" or "swings" by emulating the motions of real parents - Moms and Dads like YOU. Now, PishPoshBaby has teamed-up with my friends Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro to get one lucky reader hooked-up with a 4moms mamaRoo of their own - and they've invited THE ROCK FATHER to take part in spreading the word on this great opportunity to win a fantastic prize for your little "new release."

Cool Mashup: PINK FLOYD + LEGO = Another Brick in the Wall

TeeFuryPop culture mashups are always a lot of fun, and TeeFury has been one of the leaders when it comes to putting those mashups on your chest in the form of a t-shirt.

Known for their limited-time offerings of just 24 hours a pop, once in awhile a shirt comes back by popular demand, and that's just what happened with "Another Brick in the Wall," a design mashing the iconic multi-colored bricks of LEGO with the title of the 1979 album and 1982 film by PINK FLOYD.

#OrangeTuesday Arrives: The 2014 Halloween Season is Here!

THE ROCK FATHER is a paid 2014 BuyCostumes Halloween Brand Ambassador

And like that, Labor Day is finally behind us and #OrangeTuesday has arrived! What is Orange Tuesday, you ask? It's the new Black Friday - the official start to the Halloween Season, and that day is today. It's true, I'm an unapologetic fan of Fall and Halloween (I was an October baby), and my little ones are turning out to be as well (that picture up top is Addie at just 14 months back in 2010). In fact, as far as I'm concerned, Halloween is the #1 Holiday of the year with Christmas it's only A-list partner (my wife said I couldn't mark the boxes with Easter & Valentine's stuff as "B-List Holiday Decor"). 2014 is particularly special, as the folks at BuyCostumes have invited me to join their crew for the next ten weeks - bringing you more frightfully-good seasonal content than ever before, with spook-tacular goodies from BuyCostumes peppered on top of my already fang-tastic treats for the year. Yeah, I'm a bit punny - but it's Orange Tuesday, so let's celebrate with a jump on the Halloween Shopping Season. Are you ready?

Back-to-School with RUUM American Kid's Wear #GurneeBTS #Ruum4Fall

Shop RUUM American Kid's WearWhen I last checked-in from our Back-to-School shopping adventure at Gurnee Mills, there was one store left that I wanted to hit - one that's been a staple of my seasonal fashion coverage for kids for over a year now, RUUM American Kid's Wear. What's become crystal clear over the past year is that we have one very fickle young fashionista in five-year-old Addie, who will quickly accept or reject an outfit or item (even ones that Daddy and Mommy really like), but 2-year-old Finley is a little more easy-going, at least for now. With new Fall collections (including Modern Rocker, Woodland and Back to School) in-stores and online at RUUM.com, the folks at RUUM invited us into their store to grab a few more outfits for the girls, and with $100 in Gift Cards and some additional cash from The Rock Father, here's what went down...
