It should be absolutely no surprise to anyone at this point that Coffee is an essential ingredient of my day here at Rock Father HQ. With that in mind, the folks at Life of Dad and Starbucks asked me to show off a Starbucks VIA Moment on Instagram (Hey! I’m new there, give me a follow!), and that’s what I did. Roughly 10 seconds of life as a Work-at-Home Dad with a mischievous 4-year-old slapping the camera away, and an angry 14-month-old crying and screaming at me. Yes, that’s just one example of a Starbucks VIA Moment (along with rockin’ into the wee hours) when a quick cup of coffee is required. Watch mine below, then share yours for a chance to win some fantastic prizes!



Starbucks VIA Ready Brew is available in a wide variety of flavors (I’m big on the Italian Roast right now) from plenty of locations. Check out for full details, and to make YOUR VIA MOMENT. Ready to share it with the world? Visit Life of Dad until August 31, 2013 to submit your video for a chance to win a Starbucks Gift Card ($100/$200/$500 up for grabs).
