The Active Father {Walgreens $50 Gift Card Giveaway}

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Lunchbox and Latina Bloggers Connect.  Opinions, as always, are my own.

The children frequently gaze out the window in the evenings, waiting for that special moment of declaring “Daddy’s home!”.  Their daily reunions are always incredibly sweet (and funny!) as both kids pine for their chance to spill the details of their days – a moment reminiscent of my own childhood.

My husband, a small business owner, works incredibly hard for all of us.  His days are jam-packed with messy construction sites, meetings, and drawing plans.


And on some evening, after bedtime books – he illustrates stories for our children based on their dreams.

dad drawing

I love how fatherhood continually inspires his creativity.

He’s an active man to say the least – and on most days his work clothes are immediately tossed into the washing machine.  He’s also a stubborn brand loyalist, who doesn’t like to veer from his steadfast products.  Getting him to try a new deodorant took some coaxing – but he’s officially switched to Degree’s new MOTIONSENSE™ technology designed to protect with movement for up to 48 hours.

The maximum protection keeps my handsome man covered all day.

famA happy daddy – not a stinky one!
