What a difficult decision we had to make tonight.  All of the entries for the Father’s Day Contest were genuine displays of love for their dads.  We had tears in our eyes for many of the entries and wish we could award each of these dads with the prize.  Unfortunately, we only have one prize to offer for this contest.  The winner is really every dad out there…but the winner of this contest is the response the received from Allison M.  Here is her answer to “Tell Us What You Love About Your Dad!”

What I love about my step-dad: that he stepped into the role of step dad after being a childless bachelor of 30+ odd years with such ease and comfort. I love that he worries about us ‘kids’ daily, despite the fact we are grown adults now, that we have a standing date every summer for a bike ride and dinner out. That he refuses to let me pay for lunch ever. That when he found out he was going to be a grandpa he started planning all the fun he could have with his grandson. I love the strength and determination he showed after losing his foot in a work accident 2 years ago – he has inspired me to never give up, to always look to the positive, and to cherish the loved ones around me. I love that he makes my mom happy and that he loves us as his own.

Thank you Allison M. for entering your dad in this contest.  Please email me for instructions on how to claim your prize.

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc. My business story started a way back in 2001... …after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions. The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources. The Parentguide.ca website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me. I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do! I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
