Michael is a stay-at-home dad with two kids.
What is your favorite thing about being a dad?
The best part of being a dad is getting to watch my kids grow up. They are growing up so fast on me. I also love that I get to play with them every day! I love that we get to go out and explore the world together even if it is just playing in the tunnel slide at McDonald’s or jumping in puddles on a warm day or playing at the park and watching them smile and have fun while we play outside. I love observing them as they make up their own games. I also am lucky because I get to spend everyday playing with my kids.
How has being part of Chicago Dads Group been good for you?
I love the Chicago Dads Group because it like a brotherhood of dads. It is nice to hang out with other dads who understand what it is like to be a stay at home parent.
I love the weekly meetups and how all the kids know each other and are like a big family. The kids play so nicely together, because they see each other every week at playgroup.
The Chicago Dad Group has been great for me because it has helped me connect with a lot of great dads who take care of their children.
What has been your favorite Chicago Dads Group event?
The family picnic is one of the best events with Daddy Olympics and lots of fun things to do. My kids loved it the last 2 years and we can’t wait to go again!
