Are you a Stay at Home Daddy or a Working Daddy?

  • Working Daddy

Would you have it any other way?

  • I only know one way, but wouldn’t mind being a Stay at Home Daddy at one point in my kids’ lives.

Do you co-change dirty nappies? Even the very smelly ones?

  • Of course. I’ve cleaned poop and pee off the walls too!

A little fairy gives you the possibility of breastfeeding? Are you going for it or do you run away?

  • Yes, definitely. I would love to really know the pain and struggle my wife went through and be able to better understand it. And, breastfeeding is a bond us dads will never understand.

What is the one must-have item for a daddy?

  • A big jar of patience.

How many kids do you plan on having?

  • We have two and plan on having no more.

Lads’ nights? How often do you have them?

  • I play ice hockey once a week with the boys.

Your children’s favourite achievement?

  • For my four-ish year old daughter it was being the “snack sheriff” and “special helper” in her Junior Kindergarten class. For my two-ish year old boy, it’s likely going to the potty all by himself – but he loves and smiles through most days.

What is your best memory with your kid(s)?

  • I feel like every day is a memory. I remember both their births like it was yesterday. I also remember my daughter being maybe 5-months old and I was sleeping on the floor in her room. She had a cold and we were worried (first kid). At some point she woke up and looked through her crib and saw me lying there, looking at her. A huge smile and look of surprise came across her face. The look was like “you’re here!!!!!”.

Name one thing you miss since being a daddy?

  • More weekend time to enjoy a newspaper and a good cup of coffee at a coffee shop

Weight gain, before pregnancy, during, after and now? And we mean YOU DADDY, not the mummy!

  • Throughout

Dream holiday with your kids?

  • Peru

Dream holiday without your kids or even without the other half? (You’re allowed to dream)

  • Japan

How has your life changed since having kids?

  • I like to think I am the same person, just with more responsibility, knowledge and life experience.

Finish the sentence “It makes my heart melt when…”

  • When my kids play/communicate with each other

Favourite beers brands and football team?

  • Rochefort (Belgian) and Toronto FC (MLS)

Huggies or Pampers?

  • Pampers

Have you always wanted kids?

  • Yes

Best part of being a dad?

  • It’s almost impossible to accurately capture “the best part of being a dad”. From the warmth and pride when they rest their heads on your shoulder as you hug/hold them, to them being captivated while you teach them something new. And, holding their hand and them squeezing it tighter as you walk into a busy place/new situation.
