The Daddy Tag Challenge #TheDaddyTag

Daddy tag challenge

Today Daddy is answering questions from the Daddy Tag Challenge – a challenge set up by fellow blogger The Frenchie Mummy.

Answering questions for the Daddy Tag Challenge
Answering questions for the Daddy Tag Challenge
  • Are you a Stay at Home Daddy or a Working Daddy?
    • Both – my job is only part time so I’m home a lot, and spend the entire summer with my family (as my work is tied in with the Football season)
  • Would you have it any other way?
    • Yes – I’d much rather be working full time if I could (then I wouldn’t be bothered by the kids so much!)
  • Do you co-change dirty nappies? Even the very smelly ones?
    • Not any more, but I have done
  • A little fairy gives you the possibility of breastfeeding? Are you going for it or do you run away?
    • Yes, I’d go for it – I’d love man boobs!
  • What is the one must-have item for a daddy?
    • Earplugs
  • How many kids do you plan on having?
    • No more!!
  • Lads’ nights? How often do you have them?
    • Rare to never (unless there’s a big football match on)
  • Your children’s favourite achievement?
    • Both kids skiing a black run in Obergurgl this year. Hugo did every black run in the resort. Toby has improved so much since then, he could easily do it now too.
  • What is your best memory with your kid(s)?
    • Our wedding day – Hugo half undressing himself as we took our vows, and Toby screaming the place down because he wanted to be fed by Mummy, whose bare flesh in a strapless wedding gown was too much for our 4-month old to bear!
  • Name one thing you miss since being a daddy?
    • Regular nights out with my wife. We were just saying how we need to get into this trend of having ‘date nights’
  • Weight gain, before pregnancy, during, after and now? And we mean YOU DADDY, not the mummy!
    • No, I’ve always been this fat!!
  • Dream holiday with your kids?
    • Something with a very good kids’ club – with childcare from 8am to midnight
  • Dream holiday without your kids or even without the other half? (You’re allowed to dream)
    • Heliskiing in the Rockies
  • How has your life changed since having kids?
    • You obviously become less self-conscious and less self-absorbed as you have others to think about. Life changes in every way – you can’t do anything without thinking of them first.
  • Finish the sentence “It makes my heart melt when…”
    • when the boys spontaneously come and throw their arms around me and say “I love you Daddy”.  It doesn’t happen all that often, but when it does, it’s lovely.
  • Favourite beers brands and football team?
    • I like to drink local beers – Brewdog IPA is my current favourite. My favourite football team is difficult to say – I do support my local team Hartlepool Utd. I used to follow Aberdeen when I lived up there. I’ve always favoured small local teams, I’m not into big clubs that buy success.
  • Huggies or Pampers?
    • Pampers
  • Have you always wanted kids?
    • It was a heavy price to pay….!
  • Best part of being a dad?
    • Bedtime.

Don’t forget to nominate three daddies to complete this daring challenge!

  1. Some funny answers here. Thank you so much for completing it. It’s so nice to see what a lovely family you are. And you definitely need to have some date nights. The boys seem old enough and I am sure you can go to a nice local Frenchie restaurant. #thedaddytag

      Thanks Lauretta, I was tempted to tag you, but since you said you don’t usually do this kind of thing, I thought I’d better not xx

  3. Aww, thanks so much for the nomination – I have already done it about a week or so ago on le blog! Great to hear the other parent voice and boy wasn’t it lovely to be so free and not to have the responsibility of having children. I love the ear plugs and the special moment of your son’s wrapping their arms around daddy!!!! Thanks for sharing it is great to hear daddy’s answers X
