Give the Gift of Manhood with this Old Spice & “Dadsong” Video {Plus, Giveaway}

“This post and giveaway were made possible by Double Duty Divas and Old Spice. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.”

Do you want a good holiday laugh? This “Dadsong” video on the Old Spice YouTube Channel is such a funny way of showing the differences of a relationship between a mother and her son vs. a father and his son. As mothers we our sons are our babies. No matter how old they get we want to keep them close and keep them as little as we can. As a mom of three boys I can tell you this hits the nail on the head pretty good. I cried harder when Johnny turned 10 then when I turned 30. Dad on the other hand was not the biggest fan of the newborn stage but when those feet finally hit the ground he was the first one to let go and trust he could do it on his own.

Since then not much has changed. At 14 Johnny has grown into a, um, grown boy that I can be proud of. I know he’s not a little boy any longer but I think that even when he’s grown with children of his own I’ll always consider him my baby because essentially he is. I do, however, need to realize that he’s growing and changing.

I try to leave most of those talks to Dad. He’s proud of how big he’s become and the older my boys get the closer their relationship grows with their father. As a mom I’m pretty proud of all of them. I know we’re raising our boys right and they’ll later become men we’re proud of too. To help with that uncomfortable passage into manhood as a mom I just slip a bag full of Old Spice products in his room and let him figure out which ones he likes best. I figure since his dad won’t use anything but Old Spice I might as well just start with what I know works.

Santa also likes to share his favorite Old Spice products with him now that Johnny isn’t wishing for a stocking full of hot wheels. Now he fills it with lots of great products from Old Spice like these:

  11. Dawn Monroe says

    Kinda.I think kids grow up to fast but Im ready, lol. Out of six kids we have one 17 year old boy still home and Im liking being an empty nester.

  12. I think the Mother is going through Empty Nest Syndrome and she wants her Little Boy Back. I think the Father is ready to let go and have his Son be a man. I can relate to both. It’s like a Tug of War with your emotions. Cute video.

  13. sandra davis says

    With 3 boys, I completely agree. They have grown up way way too fast.

  20. Betty says

    I agree – definity
    There does not seem to be a real depth to age. Just yesterday they were experiencing that long list of firsts from smiling to crawling to the first tooth coming out. Then it seems like we are blindsided by their heading off to college.

  21. Brittany Koelmel says

    I absolutely agree, and these commercials are my favorite, theyre so funny

  22. Jackie says

    Yes, I agree. I think when a boy starts caring what he smells like, he is growing up. But he’ll always be mommy’s boy. Cute video!

  30. Leela says

    Yes, they do.

  31. sandra says

    yes, I agree!

  32. Yes, I have three stages of boys in my house so I can totally agree. I have a toddler, a 7 yr old who thinks he can use it too (Oh geez leave the house if he sprays it) and of course my 17 yr old who doesn’t go anywhere without it. They grow too quickly, this school year I will be watching my oldest graduate. I just wish there was a freeze button on life.
