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.
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.
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.
