GIVEAWAY: A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 3 — Celebrating the Holidays with Pampers’ #PeaceOnEarth!

To my new readers in Internetland, you may not know that we’re expanding our family next month with another little boy to call our son. While I’ve admittedly been so wrapped up with family, work and my #BloggerLife to think very much on what life will look like with two kids, there’s one thing I know without a doubt from my two years of parenting so far — raising a child is no simple affair, and you’d better be prepared, because they come with a price tag attached almost upon exiting the womb!

But for those of you in the early stages of parenthood, maybe we can ease that sting a little with today’s prize for a Case Cringle Christmas!

Pampers’ #PeaceOnEarth — or — Why Serenity’s So Important in the Hectic Holidays

“If you can’t feed your baby (yeah, yeah)
Then don’t have a baby (yeah, yeah)
And don’t think “Maybe” (yeah, yeah)
If you can’t feed your baby! (yeah, yeah)”

— Michael Jackson, “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'”, Thriller (1983)

Among the various other hats I wear as the blogger behind CaseyPalmer.com, one I recently picked up was joining the Pampers Baby Panel as a brand ambassador, exploring everything the brand stands for and what it can do to help parents in an age where one of the oldest gigs in the book is more confusing than ever.

A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 3 — Celebrating the Holidays with Pampers' #PeaceOnEarth! — Pampers Baby Panel Prize KitAs part of the welcome package, Pampers surprised us with a delivery of enough diapers, wipes and Ivory Snow laundry detergent to last both the boys for a bit, and I can’t express enough how good it feels to know you’ll have one less errand to deal with in those first few weeks where all you’re trying to do is survive!

But enough about me… let’s talk about you.

GIVEAWAY: A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 1 — Keep Your Phone Game on Fleek with the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3!

Ahoy there, Internetland — you couldn’t seriously believe I’d let the Christmas season pass me by without putting out some sweet giveaways to celebrate the holidays, right? Though not as expansive — or admittedly, prepared — as the Techmas event at my buddy Zach’s site, I’ve partnered with a number of brands who have all sorts of things they’d love you to have to ring in the New Year!

The first gift good ol’ Case Cringle has for the good little girls and boys out in Internetland is the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3, a 5.5″ Android smartphone that can do just about everything other flagship phones can do, but at a fraction of the price!

But let’s get something straight from the drop — this phone is not impervious to gravity.

I first got my hands on the Idol 3 back in June when Citizen PR invited me to BMO Field so I could witness an announcement first-hand  as Alcatel onetouch partnered with Toronto FC, and a Dwayne de Rosario Testimonial Match as icing on the cake!

New York, New York, it’s a helluva town… but I was too busy enjoying its people to enjoy much of the sights.

The look of a man on the start of a hectic but ultimately fun trip down to The Big Apple.

Earlier this month, Citizen Canada reached out to see whether I’d be interested in flying out to NYC to interview Black-ish star Anthony Anderson on his experiences Behind the Clean — the numbers and narratives behind what being a Dad really means today, specifically in handling household chores. I hadn’t hit The Big Apple since 2010 when I’d proposed to a certain woman I’m still coincidentally married to, so I figured why not? It’d be a good change of pace!

How little I knew of what would lie ahead….
