One of the things I love most about my kids is that they tend to bring out the kid in me. I love to wrestle, joke and tease with my kids, and it always makes me feel younger to spend time playing with them.
As many of you know, my wife and I are about to bring another child into the world, so what better way to celebrate than to have a CONTEST!!!
There are two ways to enter the contest:
1. Write a blog post describing what kinds of things help to "bring out the kid" in you. It doesn't have to be your kids - you don't need to be a parent to feel young again - it can be anything that helps you feel like a kid: memories of childhood, going to the fair, certain foods or drinks, you get the idea. Provide a link back to this post in your entry, so that Technorati can pick it up and I can track it. Just to be safe, come back here and leave a comment with a link to your post too. It can be either a written, podcast or video entry!!!
2. If you don't have a blog, you can still enter by leaving a comment here with your story (you will need to leave an e-mail address though, i.e. johndoe at gmail dot com).
The contest will run from Monday, May 19, through Sunday, May 25, 2008. Winners will be announced on Monday, June 2, 2008, and the winning entry will be republished here on Discovering Dad with a link back to the winner's site, if applicable. Links will be published to all winning entries. The most creative and inspiring stories will be chosen as winners!
1st Prize = A brand new Nintendo Wii game system
2nd Prize = Pinata jammed full of Nestle Crunch bars
3rd Prize = Box of Nestle candy
*note: Due to sponsorship restrictions, the top 3 prizes are only eligible to U.S. residents only. Sorry, but rules is rules people. But wait....so that my International readers don't feel left out...I'm personally throwing in a $25 Starbucks gift card to the top International entry!!!
1st Prize (International) = $25 Starbucks gift card
I'd like to thank Nestle Crunch for sponsoring this exciting contest, and I encourage you to visit their For the Kid in You website or Facebook page to get some inspiration for writing your entry.
All winners will be chosen by Jeremy Biser, Publisher, Discovering Dad. All sponsored prizes will be fulfilled by Nestle Crunch via Olgivy Public Relations.
I'm very excited about this contest, as staying young at heart is something very important to me. I look forward to reading your entries, and PLEASE OVERWHELM ME!!! I'd love to get hundreds of entries - the more the better!!!
Good luck, and have fun!!!
