Pregnancy Awareness Month Event 2013

Pregnancy Awareness Month Event 2013

A few weekends ago I made my way to Santa Monica’s Bergamot Station and attended the Pregnancy Awareness Month 2013 event.  Hundreds of parents were treated to tons of vendors, samples, and demonstrations.  However what grabbed my attention this time was the celebrity dad speaker panel.

Celebrity Daddy Panel

I was treated to the celebrity dad insights and anecdotes of Eric Dane, Ian Ziering, and Balthazar Getty.  The panel was hosted by our good buddy Robert Nickell of Daddy Scrubs and deftly moderated by Kevin Frasier from The Insider.

I half expected Ian Ziering to be the class clown from his 90210 days.  To my surprise, he tugged at the heart strings as he recollected tearing up with his daughters.  Eric Dane was McFunny instead of McSteamy as he kept the crowd in stiches with his one liners. Balthazar Getty advised us to encourage our little ones’ desires by not saying no to them unless absolutely necessary.  Finally, Daddy Nickell spoke about leaving a legacy as two of his daughters currently work for his company.  He also mentioned ages 0-3 are the most critical times for child development so parents have to be especially diligent at this time.

Final Thoughts

PAM co-founders Alisa Donner and Anna Getty wowed attendees with great speakers, products, and prize giveaways.  Congrats on pulling off another fantastic show!  Special thanks to Dr. Greene for fielding my question about organic foods, warning me about pesticides, and the Dirty Dozen.

    Having children is a lot of work, if you do it right! When our children were small, my wife worked part time and I spent a lot of time with them. Both my wife and I did a lot of things with them. It seems trivial now, but it was simple things like talking to them or reading to them (even as an infant). I used to have many “conversations” with our children when I fed them or when we went somewhere. They were always with one of us except for 2 hours a week. It may the reasons for good child development.

    Wow! There must be an event for everything. Pregnancy awareness? Are you announcing another on the way or did I miss the announcement? Or I guess maybe you just like going to all of these types of things.

      No announcement Lee! We just like hitting these events. Learning about new products and hearing from experts. It’s also a great excuse to get out of the house!

  3. Never hear of this but sound like it would be great to attend. Like the fact the panel was all male. It good to give dad credit as well. Having children is certainly not easy but very much worth it. And they grow up fast make sure you spend time with them while you can. I really wish I could have done what Krantcents and his wife did. 2 hours is all the child was without one of them.

      Thanks YDF! Can’t forget dads are apart of the whole process, too. You are so right. They grow up fast. Will listen to your advice. Do you have a lot of kids?
