Do Good

Pampers and Russell Wilson Share Love On Father’s Day 2017

I love being a dad. It was a game changer. I love seeing people happy, too. That’s why I was psyched to have partnered with Life of Dad and Pampers for this. 

Father’s Day Good

One last bit of awesome from Pampers, and their amazing Father’s Day 2017, I’d love to share with you. Pampers is great at sharing love, kindness, and goodness around. They do it all the time, seriously. I know it first hand from all the work they’ve done with my wife Vera via Lady and the Blog. They know they have a good thing and they want to share it with people that might need it a little bit more than you and I do. Timing is everything and Pampers really seems to deliver the goods, literally.

So this past Father’s Day, Pampers decided to team up with the great Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson to visit Seattle Children’s Hospital and share some important goods (diapers and more), tickets to a Seahawks game, and some good feelings.

I love that Mr. Wilson got in on the action, too. It’s nice to see such a megastar sharing the love, too. You can see the smile of the dad’s faces when he walks in the room…bearing gifts!! This is just a priceless thing to see and the video really hits home. Since becoming a dad, I get all mushy with all the feels when I see things like this. It makes me want to get out and do good, too.

New Pampers Easy Ups Diapers Rock Potty Training – Here Are 7 Tips

Tracking Pixel
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Procter & Gamble (P&G).


Potty training. It can be easy or it can be tough. Typically, it’s not the smoothest experience in the world. How could it be? One thing is for sure…it’s a big deal for you and your toddler. The key to it all, whether it’s your first child or your fifth, don’t get discouraged. You have to stick with it and do your best. It will happen, just remember that!!

This time with Caleb, our third potty training run, was much more casual than the first two times. Vera and I didn’t push it. We didn’t roll up all the rugs and give him underwear day 1. We didn’t got completely nuts or make Caleb completely nuts either. We just let it happen at his pace and, guess what, it worked! I’m happy to report, even though he still wears New Pampers Easy Ups at night, we have a potty trained boy!


To get you going, here’s my 2 cents and a few potty training tips from me to you:

  1. Don’t start potty training your children until you think they are ready, it’s better for everyone if you wait until your child shows signs of interest
  2. Engage your child with books and movies about potty training, it makes it that much more fun
  3. If you have older siblings, bring your youngest along and have them watch what happens in the bathroom
  4. Don’t be afraid to make a big deal about small wins, they will be so happy
  5. I rewarded number two and I’m not ashamed to admit that, toys and candy always do the trick
  6. Let your other kids get involved, your little one will really love the fact that they are
  7. Purchase potty training diapers that are fun and have characters your children love, you don’t have to push the underwear right away…they play a vital role in potty training


You want to know why number 7 is so important? First, it’s a logical and pretty awesome stepping stone to pee-pee and poo-poo independence! Your little one can easily pull them down and pull them up as they take care of, um, business. (FYI: 60% of moms say pulling pants up and down is hardest task for toddler). You know, Pampers Easy Ups are preferred by 50% more moms for being easier to pull up and down.


The Easy Ups look, fit and feel like real underwear, so they feel big, but still have superior leak protection just in case. Another plus, I would tell my kids, “You don’t want to pee pee on (insert cool character name here), do you?” Of course they did not, so my job was much easier! Plus…Thomas the Tank Engine…I mean, c’mon.

Pampers Easy Ups were always our go-to training pants. Just think about this – there are over 10MM moms preparing to, or already in the process of potty training their child each year. While “quick training” is popular in articles, in practice potty training takes an average 90 days for a child to master, so if it seems like it’s taking forever, it’s probably not. Oh yeah, don’t forget the wipes. Those are so important in so many ways…seriously.

Fatherhood & Family

Celebrate Your Rebirth As A Dad With Pampers #ThanksBaby

Screen Shot 2016-06-18 at 3.59.34 PM

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).

Screen Shot 2016-06-18 at 4.07.13 PM

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.

Bambo Nature: 25 Years of Certified Safe & Eco-Friendly

Bambo Nature 2

If you have kids, you deal with diapers. Dirty, stinky, messy diapers. I know, it’s not a crowd pleaser, but it’s life. Deal with it. I am in the middle of it, but I was out of it and saw the other side…and I know it can be a pain in the neck.

So, if you have to use diapers, why not use well-made diapers that have an eco-friendly conscience?? Bambo Nature, made in beautiful Denmark, has you covered on all angles. Feel good, people…

The setting of criteria is based on an assessment of impacts during the whole life-cycle – all the way from raw material to production, consumption and waste.

  • Abena requires a reduction on energy consumption. Bambo Nature Baby Diapers are manufactured on Abena’s newest and most efficient diaper machine.
  • Abena adheres to requirements on resource consumption.

Enter To Win: Pampers Wipes Baby Basket Prize Pack


Wipes, anyone? Diapers? I know about these two products all too well…and who does it better than Pampers? We are a Pampers family. We love how soft Pampers wipes are for Caleb while standing up to the mess, never shredding or tearing. They are tough, just like little Caleb. Plus, Caleb loves the taste (that was a joke). The stronger the wipe, the less you have to actually wipe…which is just a better deal for everyone, isn’t it?

My wife, Vera, is a part of the Pampers Baby Board and flew to Cincinnati to visit P&G headquarters. The entire Pampers Baby Board got to vote on which designs they liked best and Vera’s designs were chosen! She’s pretty psyched, so I thought it would be cool to share it with you guys.
