Celebrating the #PowerOfDads

~ Thank you to Oral-B for sponsoring this post. My opinions and words are my own.


The above picture is of me and my dad right before he walked me down the aisle. My dad was the ultimate Father of the Bride. The morning after I got engaged, he went straight to the bookstore and cleaned out the wedding planning shelf. From taking me to my dress fitting to keeping my mom up at night by discussing meal choices, he was involved in every step of the way. It was amusing but amazing to see my big Texas dad elbow deep in ruffles.

I shouldn’t have been surprised though. My dad has been there from day one: feeding me at night, giving me a bath, taking me on trips by himself (with three of my friends no less), picking me up and taking me to countless orthodontist appointments. Those were special afternoons in junior high, my dad always treated me to lunch after.

In celebration of Father’s Day this year, Oral-B is honoring dads everywhere with their newest campaign — the Power of Dad. This campaign focuses on the moments and smiles dads have brought to their families over the years. In honor of Father’s Day, Oral-B is making a $25,000 donation to March of Dimes, the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health, dedicated to helping babies get a healthy start in life.

A breakthrough in brushing, it combines the familiar brushing motion of a manual brush with the comprehensive power of advanced triple zone cleaning action, to cover more surface area and remove up to 100 percent more plaque versus a regular manual toothbrush.”

    I love that my dad moved me and all my crap close to 10 times while I was “finding myself” Never asked questions when I needed to move out because I was breaking up with my boyfriend or was failing my semester in college. He is awesome, nerdy and the best.

  2. Such a cute story. My dad took me to most of my orthodontist appointments too!

    My dad has always been one of my biggest supporters… He gave me job opportunities when I was young and helped me learn that I was capable of whatever I put my mind to.

  5. My dad is the most flexible person I know. He has been a solid rock all my life!

  6. I love that my dad is my best friend and my biggest cheerleader. I’m a lucky girl.
