What is your favorite children’s book, and why?
The Wish;” it’s the story of two elephants that want nothing more than to have a little elephant of their own, but it doesn’t happen right away. They wait, and keep their faith until one day their wish comes true. It gets me every time.
What is your favorite thing about being a dad?
It is making this little human being laugh and smile and watching her personality start to emerge.
How has being part of Chicago Dads Group been good for you?
I’ve been able to develop some quick friendships with other Dads who understand how fortunate we are to have this opportunity to raise our kids on a day-to-day basis. It’s also been very helpful to learn from those that are a little further along on the journey and watch their children develop a few steps ahead of my own.
What has been your favorite Chicago Dads Group event?
My favorite event was the National Baby-wearing Day at the Lincoln Park Zoo. It was so fun to walk around the zoo with a big pack of Dads wearing their kids and promoting it all over social media.
