You live your life. You move it all along, pretty much doing what you feel like doing, what makes you happy, or what you think you need to do to get to some goal in your life. You have a plan, you have your family and friends, and you are pretty comfortable with how you can and will navigate your life.

Then…things start to change. You’re getting a little off course. You find a girl, you fall in love, and you get married. You then have to worry about her and factor her needs and wants in with yours. You have new goals and a new path. You then get acclimated to this new life and you are once again cruising along (relatively speaking at least).

After a little while, guess what? Life changes once again…in a very, very big way. Yes, you know what I’m talking about…you are having a baby. Talk about a MASSIVE game changer. This is the big one, no doubt about it. Your world is turned upside down. You can’t sleep, you are crazed, you literally are taking care of a tiny human, and their existence depends completely on you not messing up (too badly). It’s daunting, but it’s a rebirth or sorts. When that baby is born, a dad is born, too and so is a whole new way of life. You are the apple of that baby’s eye, you have finally felt and see what unconditional love it all about. You start to get all misty eyed when you look at your little one. You start to feel and think things that you never have and never thought you have. You start thinking about your kids and life. Tissue commercials make you choke up.

On Father’s Day and every day, Pampers is giving thanks to babies for making dad feel exceptionally special and empowering him to discover new roles in life through fatherhood. How good is that?

As part of the celebration, Pampers has released a new #ThanksBaby video that captures the amazing relationship that is created between a dad and his baby when a baby is born and the beautiful journey of fatherhood begins. If this video doesn’t warm the cockles of your soul, well…

Doesn’t that make you love your kids even more? If you’re not a dad, maybe it doesn’t seem quite so bad, does it?

Kids have a way of making you feel young seeing things through their eyes…and old as you see them grow up so quickly right before your own eyes. It’s really quite a trip and one that, without a doubt, changes everyone. It’s a trip, and one that I wouldn’t change for anything in the world.
