A huge merci to all the bloggers who completed the Daddy Tag Challenge this week. It could not have been such a success without you, guys! So thank you to all the papas who did it. A lot of people who joined the crew this week know what the blog love means!
This week, I selected Nigel’s post because it is so obvious that he is a very caring and loving dad to 5 enfants! I also really enjoyed reading his sincere answers. With Nigel, you only get the truth and that’s it! Happy reading!
Are you a Stay at Home Daddy or a Working Daddy?
I’m half and half! On a Monday and Tuesday, I’m home with my four year old twin girls and I work Wednesday through to Saturday, sometimes Sunday, although that’s the only day we get to spend together as a family.
Would you have it any other way?
Absolutely not! We don’t have any childcare help so once my wife went back to work part-time it seemed logical to take Monday and Tuesday off to be with the girls and I love it!
Do you co-change dirty nappies? Even the very smelly ones?
Yes! It never bothered me and with twins, there wasn’t any choice! Some days there was poo everywhere!
A little fairy gives you the possibility of breastfeeding? Are you going for it or do you run away?
I would definitely give it a go! I’ll try anything once. What I would like to do is sit in a restaurant and start breast feeding. I’ve never understood these idiots that moan about mum’s doing the most natural thing in the world. Now just imagine the outrage at me doing it, that would be interesting. A moment to savour I think.
What is the one must-have item for a daddy?
A mummy! So when I’m under pressure mummy will be there to take over. Oh yes and my iPhone, well it is moulded to my right hand. Where my hand goes my iPhone follows and of course it’s always there to capture those magical moments of our children growing up.
How many kids do you plan on having?
Had them! All five! I think I have stopped. No Wait! Still tempted to have another one. Who knows, I get so broody when I see a new born, watch this space!
Your children’s favourite achievement?
There are so many and it would be unfair to pinpoint any particular one, but a few are my daughter being selected to play football for Wales and getting into university. My oldest daughter achieving so much in the workplace in such a short time. My son is slowly developing my somewhat strange sense of humour that is very rewarding, and he is now trying to wind me up which is very funny. My older children are now well-balanced adults and that makes me very happy. My four year old twins, every milestone that they achieve is my favourite. Recently they have started telling jokes and generally making up stories which I find very rewarding.
I would love to go to Disneyland in America. You never know one day maybe.
I would never go on my own, so if by chance it was my wife and I, which is seriously unlikely, the Caribbean would be pretty cool.
When any of my children kiss me or say I love you. Simple, and of course ‘dad can I have a tenner?’ Actually, my heart stops when they say that! I must be clinically dead, they are always asking for money.
I don’t drink so no favourites there. My football team is Cardiff City, my hometown and I have followed Manchester Utd for years.
PSST! If you love blogs, don’t forget to check out Nigel’s favourite mummy blogger Twin Mummy and Daddy! Yes, his wife Emily is also a blogger and a good one too! So don’t miss an opportunity!
