In case you’re new here, or have just recently joined us on our journey through parenthood, we welcomed our first child, Boogie Elijah, into the world on April 26th, 2008. Since then, everything has changed for the both of us; priorities, responsibilities, and life as a whole. Being first-time parents, everything is new to us, and we’re enjoying every second of it…
…which is why we’re at it again! With Father’s Day coming up in a little over a week, we’ve decided to throw a giveaway (like we did for Mother’s Day) in honor of all the daddies out there enjoying what Daddy calls “one of the most wonderful and fulfilling roles ever”, Daddyhood!
[flickr align="left"]2515493429(small)[/flickr]“The day Boogie was born, a realization came over me: I now have a human life that depends on my well being. For that reason, I have made numerous changes, big and small, in my life. I now eat healthier. No more downing three Whoppers, fries, and a bowl of ice cream all in one sitting. I now drive safer. No more rolling through stop signs and racing to beat the light when it turns yellow. I now work harder. Providing Boogie with the best life I can is now my number one priority. I believe that I am a better person because of my son.”
“I love it when I hear his little coo sounds in the background when I make calls to Mommy from work. I love it when he wakes up crying, and all it takes to soothe him back to sleep is his head lying on my chest. I love it how he curls his tiny toes every time I touch his feet. I love it when I touch his cheek with the tip of my nose and he gets excited and tries to suck on it because he thinks he’s at the “boobie bar”. I love it when I put my finger in his little hand, and he clinches on to it tightly and never lets go, as if he wants me to stay with him forever. As I type this, he is lying next to me smiling in his sleep. I wouldn’t give up any of this for the world.”
We have a total of
EIGHT NINE TEN gifts to be given away for Father’s Day! Take a peek at what there is to be won:

How To Enter
There are three ways you can enter this giveaway, and everyone is eligible! You don’t have to own a blog and you don’t have to be a daddy to enter! If you’d like to be included in this giveaway, here’s how:
1. Post a comment explaining what daddyhood means to you. If you’re a mommy, or even if you don’t have any children, explain what daddyhood means to you from your perspective. (Only one comment per person, please!)
2. Blog about this giveaway. We’d love to be able to reach as many daddies as possible so that we can make this Father’s Day a little bit more special for them this year. With your help by blogging about this giveaway, we know that the possibilities are endless!
3. Place our giveaway button on your blog. Please let us know in the comments if you’ve placed a button on your blog so that we can count that as an entry in your name. Whether you decide to place a button on your sidebar or include it in a post, both are acceptable ways to be included. In fact, anywhere on your blog is fine! Here is the giveaway button:
You can enter by just one method, two, or even all three methods. It’s up to you! Each method of entry is worth one entry in this giveaway, for a maximum of three possible entries. This giveaway will end at 5:00PM CST on Father’s Day, Sunday June 15th, 2008, of which comments will be closed at that time. Yeah, we know it’s weird to end the giveaway on Father’s Day. But try viewing winning as “part one” of the gift giving process, and receiving the gift as “part two”! Winners will be chosen and announced here on Mommy Daddy Blog later on that night.
Good luck everyone, and Happy Father’s Day to every Daddy out there enjoying the blessing that is Daddyhood!
