For October's Parent Profile, Itzy Ritzy is proud to introduce you to Brandon, and his beautiful family!
Name: Brandon Powell
Family: Wife Jolie, son Jax, son Hudson & daughter Evangeline
Occupation: Family Owned Business - Oil and Gas
Brandon's kids & what they are into:
Jax - 6, who we like to call "Boss Hog" loves baseball and has a huge sweet tooth.
Hudson - 4, our Class Clown plays T-Ball and tries to do everything his big brother does.
Evangeline - 15 months, our little girl who we call Evan brings so much joy to our lives and has completed our family.
Other cities where Brandon has lived:
Brandon's one piece of advice for someone about to become a first time parent:
You can do more than you think - they need you more than you think. I finally got it after our 3rd and have had the best bonding with our little girl. Find laughter in it all...and never forget their age.
The one thing that surprised Brandon the most about becoming a dad:
The spontaneity that comes with having kids. There is never a dull moment.
Brandon's parenting trick:
Each child is their own person - therefore they all cannot be approached the same way.
Brandon's favorite sports team:
Texas Rangers and the Boston Red Sox
Brandon's favorite one-on-one activities with his children:
Playing catch or watching a movie together.
If Brandon could go anywhere tomorrow on an all expense paid vacation, where would he go and with whom?
I would take my wife back to Cabo where we had our honeymoon 10 years ago. We have not been anywhere since...
Something else we should know about Brandon:
Becoming a father is a gift that we get to enjoy for just a short period of time. I feel so lucky and blessed to have been given the chance to be a dad to my three wonderful kids.
