Power Dad!


Father's Day is just around the corner-- next weekend, June 15th to be exact. While I'm glad dad's do get a day all to themselves to be celebrated, we should really be thanking them and cheering for them all-year round, ya know?

For the years of playing "Pretty, Pretty Princess" with their two daughters… jewelry and crown and all.
For driving us to countless school events, friend's houses, practices, vacations… you know you felt like you had a chauffeur as a kid.

For always being the one who said yes to "treats" like cookies and ice cream… even when mom had already said no ;)
For taking us to church each week and teaching us what it really meant to be a Christian… and for always setting that example.

For instilling in me a love of sports. Sure there are more important things in life… but gosh darnit, sports are fun!
For disciplining us when we needed it… and for hugging us when we needed that too.

When I think about my Dad, I just think of him as a "Power Dad" because it seems he can do it all. I'm looking forward to celebrating him next weekend and letting him know how much he means to not just his immediate family, but all his extended family and really anyone he meets, too. My dad has never met a stranger, that it the absolute truth. He is a loved guy and I hope he knows that!

So now that we've determined my dad is awesome-- I'd love to hear about your pops too! Oral-B at Target is hosting the Power Dad’s Smile Everyday Sweepstakes with over $1,000 in prizes starting June 2! To enter, just share a photo of you and your Dad on Twitter or Instagram using #oralbsweeps between June 2 and June 15. You could win the Father’s Day Power Bundle which includes the Oral-B Black ProfessionalCare 1000 Rechargeable Toothbrush, the Braun Series 7 760 shaver and a $250 Target GiftCard!

Yes, you saw that last part correctly-- $250 to Target where I'm sure you and dad could enjoy a nice little Father's Day shopping spree together! So what are you waiting on for? Get your photos Twitter and Instagram ready and share with the world how your dad makes you smile :)
