We asked 3 dad’s these daddy questions in celebration of Father’s Day. Their answers are hilarious!
- How many kiddos do you have? Age?
- What is your favorite part about being a Dad?
- What is the funniest thing your child has either done or said?
- Things no one told you about being a Dad, but you wish they had?
- What advice would you give to new or expecting Dads?

- I have four kids – Carter Action (5 yr old boy), Amaya Rae (4 yr old girl), Dominick Danger (2 yr old boy), and Miles Major (7 month old boy)
2. I love being able to witness their development, exploration, curiosity. And, of course, their unconditional love is ever present!
3. All of my kids have had their quotable moments, tough to choose just one. My favorite current sayings:
2 yr old Dom: Calling Miles “Meatbaaall” (I started the nickname, he’s a big boy)
4 yr old Amaya: “I love you inside and outside”
5 yr old Carter: “I haven’t yawned dad, I’m not even tired” (as he is nodding off)
4. Nothing I wasn’t really told, but the reality of first hand experience is real!! It has gone twice as fast as I expected and it is twice as hard as I expected. The love I feel is 1000 times as strong as I envisioned. Being a dad is a beautiful gift.
5. Create routines. Routines become communication and learning experiences that will
become memories and strengthen bonds.

1. 1 child. 5 months old
2. Playing & laughing with my daughter. Her smile is the greatest thing ever.
3. Barfed in my mouth.
4. The horror of watching child birth because of potential complications. My wife had a smooth labor but hemorrhaged after.
5. Cherish every single moment. They grow up so fast.

- 3 daughters, 17, 19, 27 and 2 grandsons 2, 4
- When I watch my grandkids cause their mother to say things I would say to her. PAYBACK 😊
- One of them was 16 and had a party when I was out of town. Though I had warned her before I left. So the police called me at midnight. When I got home she was freaking out thinking I was going to kick her out.
- No matter what you do, they will rebel against you. Raise them so they have the ability to take care of themselves when they move out and never move back in.
- Do the best you can. Just because your parents did something a certain way doesn’t mean you have to do it that way. Once you think you mastered parenting, the kids change and you are back to knowing nothing.
