P Is for Pride

P Is for Pride by Greg Paprocki introduces readers (and those listening)...

Disclosure: I have partnered with Life of Dad and Pampers for this promotion.

Father’s day every year has me reminiscing about my fatherhood journey up to that point. This year I’ve been remembering how little Mr. Dude was at the beginning. How we went from strangers to friends. Take a small photo journey with me as I remember those first couple years with him.

The Saturday morning smiles.

The airplane ride to London.

The things I’d do to keep him asleep.

The 5K we did…

Those early days of fatherhood with my first were such a change from the child-free days. My priorities flipped. He taught me the importance of slowing down and paying attention to life around me. Work is important, but family is more important. Beautiful moments are happening all around us and he taught be to focus on them more. He was so little. My first mini me.

We bonded quickly and he loved to imitate me in every little thing. 

I’ve always done my best to take care of my family and provide them with the connection that I valued so much from my parents as a kid. When a baby is born, a dad is born. This Father’s Day, Pampers celebrates that incredible feeling little ones bring to the hearts of dads through unconditional love. 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.

Pampers has released a #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.


Pampers honors dads for just being dads and thanks them for all the amazing things, big and small, they do to help little ones have a better, loving, more fulfilling life. For more than 50 years, moms and dads have trusted Pampers to care for their babies’ happy, healthy development. Pampers offers a complete range of diapers, wipes and training pants designed to provide protection and comfort for every stage.

Wes has been a constant companion to me in the kitchen since he was little.

He is there when I’m working from home.

He’s been all smiles for years when babywearing. 

That time we got a new router and he “helped” get it setup. 

Or just sleeping on my shoulder.

Now both of my boys bring me joy and stories galore. I can’t wait to share more with you about how thankful I am to them for that.
