What is your favorite children’s book, and why?
Our family’s favorite to read aloud is probably Paddington. We love these classics that stand the test of time that kids still love decades and decades later. That’s when you know the author was onto something.
What is your favorite thing about being a dad?
Seeing what they turn into. They hand you this lump of a baby in the delivery room and you end up later with quirks and personality and these amazing people who you get to watch grow every step of the way.
How has being part of Chicago Dads Group been good for you?
It can feel pretty isolating–especially as a full-time parent. I think modern dads have been great about building community. It’s nice to feel like there are others out there who share what I’m going through. We have a great group of guys…as fathers but also just as people who are fun to be around.
What has been your favorite Chicago Dads Group event?
Whirlyball for Dads Night Out is always fun. My kids still talk about going fishing last year even though they were bored and didn’t catch anything. The experience was everything!
