Parenting is Unscripted. No matter how well-planned, life moves in unexpected directions and brings new adventures with each and every day. With Rock Father's Day coming up fast, Cardstore from American Greetings and Life of Dad presented me an interesting question: What would the life of THE ROCK FATHER be as a "reality show" - but told in 15-seconds? I think it might look something like this...

DadmirationTrackerTo celebrate those unscripted moments, Cardstore has a fantastic selection of customizable cards (for Father's Day or any day), and my little ones and I ordered three of them - one for each Grandpa, and all to be delivered this week - and each containing our own mix of photos and notes. You could do it, too!

If you need a Father's Day card, the countdown is on, and the cut-off to mail those cards is this Monday (that's June 9)... should you want to be as certain as possible that the card will get there in time.
Special Offer: $2.49 Father’s Day cards with code CCG4527! (valid 6/3 – 6/9)
Following up the fantastic #WorldsToughestJob video that they did for Mother's Day (which you've probably seen, since it has nearly 21 Million plays), the crew over at Cardstore has produced a new one for Father's Day - one that captures those unscripted moments - by holding an audition for real actors, but tossing the script to see how each Dad would handle a situation in their own, unique way. 
You could call it, "Dad Casting"

Celebrate the special Dad in your life with a card. Just like The Rock Daughters did...


Disclosure: THE ROCK FATHER partnered with Cardstore from American Greetings and Life of Dad, LLC for the #WorldsToughestJob Dad Casting Father's Day promotion and was compensated for his involvement. Virtual metal fingers! \m/ \m/
