I can honestly say my husband Chris enjoys being a Dad and he's great at it. There have been many times where I am just completely wiped out and he has saved the day by taking the kids to do something or keeping them busy while I take a nap. I asked him how he does it!
What are your day-to-day challenges of being a parent?
One of the challenges is making time to spend with my boys. I work full-time and go to school part-time so there are days when I feel so exhausted but I always make it a point to spend quality time with my babies. I think it's important that I don't show or tell them I'm tired!!!
What are your tips for new Dads?
My tips for new Dads are just to relax and don't stress. Remember that you are truly blessed and cherish each moment with your baby. Your new baby will be adjusting to life on the outside, you need to be calm and cool. Don't panic! Remember to laugh!
Don't hide your feelings from them, it's important for your kids to know who you are and how you feel about them. Give them lots of hugs, kisses, high fives and I Love Yous! Yes even when they are babies! (Especially when they are babies!)
What are your favorite things about being a Dad?
I get to relive my childhood with my children - I get to play with them and teach them about toys and characters I liked when I was younger! It's fun to show them movies and cartoons I enjoyed when I was a kid and have your kid like 'em just the same.
This might be hard to believe but I love learning from them - children can teach us so much about life.
The thing I love most about my kids is that they give me a bigger outlook on life that I didn't have before. I love seeing them grow smarter and watching their personalities unfold.
