Finding the Right Time

Where does the time go when you have three kids? I can remember back to a time when I was going out at 11 and hitting concerts with friends until the wee hours of the night. I was different. I was unique. I had my own sense of style and I rocked it!  That all changed after kids. My concert tees got smaller and my tolerance diminished. Pretty soon, I was trading late nights out with friends for late nights in with our babies.  I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Parenting  changes a person. Parenting is about sacrifices and sometimes that means you temporarily lose that which made you different.  Now,  I'll sometimes stand in the middle of the house trying to remember "What was that thing I was supposed to do?" only to remember that it was actually using the bathroom.

As the start of school approaches, you might begin to wonder where the summer went but only need to look back in your hard-drive  to remember all the fun you had on vacation this year. The problem with the transition from summertime digs to our everyday uniform often means that we, as parents, especially stay at home parents, usually dress down for comfort.

If we are wearing pants that day, and you are a mom, they are probably of the yoga variety. Spandex is like your own personal Kevlar against any would be spills or errant Starbucks. If you're a dad you've probably put together the standard issue cargo shorts and superhero T-shirt. When we know that we are likely to change a shirt at least twice a day because of spit up and airborne sweet potatoes are in our future, suddenly that orange camouflage we saw in Target is making much more sense.

But there are sometimes, where I am sick of doing a Fred Flintstone and I want to break free of the norm. That's when I realize that the baseball cap and tennis shoes just aren't going to cut it that day. That's when I get crazy and pick some shorts without pockets on the side! When it comes to completing the look with a wristwatch,I know my digital watch just doesn't fit with my look. I want to be seen as the cool dad. I want to be that guy that stands out for all the right reasons.

I don't want to be the dorky dad with socks and sandals. I want to be the dad that people notice. I want what I'm wearing to elicit a positive response.  That's when I ditch the digital watch and turn to my JORD Wood watch for a change of pace. JORD wood watches are unique for their craftsmanship. Made with the finest woods, the contrast in grains and colors are stunning. They are the best watches for men who want to get noticed for flaunting their distinctive style.

Remember back in college when you liked that band that no one else really knew about? You can probably remember a live show at a venue where you saw them play or remember sleeping outside in a line waiting for tickets just to see them. You can recapture that feeling of being one of a kind with JORD wood watches, unique wrist watches for men. When you have ditched that baseball cap for something a little more sophisticated or you are looking to dress up your wrist for a night out, JORD watches are a conversation waiting to happen.

My favorite watch is the featured Dover Series with Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood. It's a watch that just begs to be touched. The pronounced hardwoods balance each other harmoniously yet still contrast. JORD watches are like those bands that no one knew about. They are the visual representation of who you are as a person. It's a watch I feel good wearing and any person in your life would too.
