This is the third of three sponsored posts I am doing leading up to Father's Day. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign.
Technically I became a father the when Duchess was born. But you're never really a fully formed father. You are constantly in a state of becoming. The first time my kid fell and called my name through her tears, the first time I woke up at 3 AM to have her standing next to my bed creepily staring at my face, the first time she didn't need me to sit next to her while she pooped. These were all steps in my never ending journey to becoming a dad. But with each one I become more powerful, more dad like, more cheese filled, and with every #PowerofDad moment I want to yell, "FOOLS, YOU HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN MY FINAL FORM!"
Oral B has a great spot right now that explores this a little more. I really enjoyed it. Check it out here:
Here's my transition to toothbrushes. I was really excited when Oral B asked me to do a post for them and review their new Precision Black 7000 Toothbrush for two reasons. One, my dentist is mad at me and told me to buy one. And two, my wife has the same toothbrush in white and I was jealous. The thing is seriously awesome. I would have done this post just to get the toothbrush. I mean, I'll take the compensation, but the toothbrush would have been worth it.
You can find out more about it here, but I will tell you a few of my favorite features.
It times you.
Brushing your teeth should take about as long as the average Green Day song, about two minutes. The Oral B Black 7000 comes with a handy timer that remotely links to your toothbrush. It also shows you how long you should be spending on each quadrant of your mouth. It kind of makes brushing your teeth like a video game - a video game with gum care!
It communicates with you.
Pressing too hard? It glows read. Need to stop for a second to spit. When you turn it off it kindly tells your timer to pause. The little timer even has a smiley or a frowny face depending on how well you are brushing. I know it is kind of cheesy, but it really makes me think more about how I am brushing.
It works. It works really really well.
So there you go! I never thought I would say that a toothbrush would make a great Father's Day gift, but I also never thought I would find a toothbrush this great.
BTW, we took a bunch of pictures for this post, and I think they turned out great. So I am just going to add them at the end. Enjoy!
|Here is the brush. The timer I told you about is in the lower right. I love Captains arm in the back ground practically saying "Here is an awesome toothbrush!|
|She has gotten much better at putting on the toothpaste.|
|We actually do this every night before bed|
|Captain wanted to play.|
|That's an Oral B too!|
|This may actually be one of my favorite picks of my daughter and me ever!|
Also, here is a gif that has nothing to do with this blog post.
