The Daddy Tag Challenge
Thanks to the Frenchie Mummy blog! I was challenged on Twitter to take #thedaddytag challenge.
Well here I am, I can’t back down from a challenge!
- Are you a Stay at Home Daddy or a Working Daddy? That’s a trick question. If I had an Uncle Ben, I’m pretty sure he would’ve already told me, “With great power comes great responsibility.” (Yes, I added a cheesy Spider Man reference) So, to answer the question, I’m a stay at home dad by day and Super Dad by night.
Would you have it any other way?
The days are long and the task is difficult. I don’t think the streets would be safe without me though, so I guess that’s a NO.
Do you co-change dirty nappies? Even the very smelly ones?
As stated prior to this post, I keep the streets clean at night. (Read Episode 1 from my blog for the reference, “Super Dad Awakens”) Even the nastiest criminals I come across are no match for Super Dad’s ass whooping, swiping, and scooping abilities. (oooh.. he said ass.. relax, I’m thumping my KJV… yes that’s a “church boy” reference)
A little fairy gives you the possibility of breastfeeding? Are you going for it or do you run away?
I’d be pretty stoked just to magically squirt liquid from my “man pepperonis.” How awesome would that be? Increased super powers? “Don’t mind me mam, I’m just pumping my pepperonis.” -100xp for the Dad Mom
What is the one must-have item for a daddy?
A sense of humor and ability to laugh at the face of danger. (and by danger, I mean not knowing what the heck you’re doing, while trying to maintain your sanity, while figuring what your purpose is as a Super Dad… all while slowly losing your man card and man privileges)
How many kids do you plan on having?
I could use a nap. What was the question?
Lads’ nights? How often do you have them?
Just brought the twins home over a month ago and been stuck here since. Lad’s night? What are those and where are you hiding my laddies? (Laddies? I’m from the US, but I’m pretty sure that’s a word for bro’s? Maybe? Sup Ladies?? 😉
Your children’s favourite achievement?
I once flipped over my handlebars and continued to flip and flip and flip, when I was going as fast as I could down a giant hill. Luckily I had my helmet on. After I safely arrived home from the hospital and regained the ability to talk, I was able to brag about how I survived flipping over my handle bars multiple times.
Ohhhh.. we’re talking about my child’s favorite achievement. Ok, uhhh… Achievement… Gracie managed to spray poop all over her clothes, blankets, desitin bottle, nurses hands and down the inside wall of the incubator while she was at the NICU. That was impressive. “10/10 for explosive action and wildly entertaining!” – The Dad Mom Reviews
What is your best memory with your kid(s)?
The first time I held them and they looked into my eyes. Awwww!!! (Tears rolling down your face… The Dad Mom can be serious…)
Name one thing you miss since being a daddy?
I’ll put this in plain English. Starts with S and ends with X. I blame it on all the crime fighting at night. I used to chill in my lair whenever I wanted. (and by lair… you know what I mean… cue Cialis theme song) Now I have to schedule lair time 2 weeks in advance and hope that the beacon in the sky isn’t lit at that very moment (and by beacon in the sky I mean sharp screams of death and hunger in the night)… also all of the stars must align, the recycling needs to be sorted (foreplay), my business socks must be on, she has to be wearing that baggy old T-shirt from work… now we’re making love for 2.. making love for 2 minutes… (Thanks Flight of the Concords! “Business Time”) Next Question?
Weight gain, before pregnancy, during, after and now? And we mean YOU DADDY, not the mummy!
I’ve actually maintained my weight. Pretty sure it’s because I never get a chance to eat and by the time it’s ready, someone is screaming or fussing. 2 hours later, I get to eat my cold food, only to be interrupted again by the beacon light from Hell. “For the love of God, I just want to eat!!!” Said me, NEVER! (sarcastic voice)
Dream holiday with your kids?
Dream holiday without your kids or even without the other half? (You’re allowed to dream)
How has your life changed since having kids?
I have a life? lol. It’s definitely a new #dadventure. My friends are now imaginary and I’m a Super Dad. So at least I’ve got that going for me… (drags feet and sings.. “all by myself, don’t wanna be all by myself anymore..”)
Finish the sentence “It makes my heart melt when…”
I accidentally step into a lava pit.
Favourite beers brands and football team?
Ciders and Vikings Football, SKOL!
Huggies or Pampers?
Pampers but only because my wife told me. (she doesn’t own me… faint cries of a lost man card in the distance)
Have you always wanted kids?
Yes, girls that look just like their mommy. I got 2! Who’s #twinning now??!! (not really sure why I just said that loudly and psychotically.. slowly….losing…sanity… where am I?)
Best part of being a dad?
I’ll finally have friends in the house that will act my age. 🙂
(Thanks everyone.. I’ll be here all week, month, year, decades… more faint cries from the distance..)
