The Daddy Tag Challenge – Mr Button Gives It a Go

 

Have you seen The Daddy Tag Challenge zip zapping across the internet? It’s a fab new challenge created by The Frenchie Mummy. I have had the pleasure of reading a number of these posts over on the #DreamTeam linky. So, after having a good chuckle at ‘The Daddy Tag – “Daddy Pig” makes his blog debut from Dawn over at Rhyming with Wine, I was excited to see that she had nominated Mr Button to join in with the fun. Woohoo!

 

 

the Frenchie Mummy Blog

 

 

As expected when I ambushed Mr Button his first thoughts were:

 

“I have got no choice have I!”

 

“Is that what you are putting down?”

 

“Was that an actual question?”

 

 

Riiiiight…. So anyway Mr Button… here we go.

 

The Daddy Tag Challenge – Mr Button Gives It a Go

 

#TheDaddyTag

 

 

Are you a Stay at Home Daddy or a Working Daddy?

I am a working daddy.  *Smug smile.

 

 

Would you have it any other way?

*Looks up into the sky. I wouldn’t mind being at home. I think I would be a good house husband. *Laughs… then looks suddenly nervous.

 

 

Do you co-change dirty nappies? Even the very smelly ones?

I did. Yes. And the diarrhoea fiasco at Christmas. *Looks at me proudly.

 

Well done Mr Button. This happened when Little Button was 3 months old and feeling very poorly on Christmas Day.

 

 

A little fairy gives you the possibility of breastfeeding? Are you going for it or do you run away?

Sounds so painful.

 

 

What is the one must-have item for a daddy?

A jumperoo… looks fun.

 

Me: For you or the little one?

Mr Button: Both!

 

 

How many kids do you plan on having?

Undecided.

 

 

Lads’ nights? How often do you have them?

Never. Well not in years. Unless you count when everyone comes round to ours.

 

 

Your children’s/child’s favourite achievement?

Walking, and taking her first steps.

 

#TheDaddyTag

 

 

What is your best memory with your kid(s)?

When we got the really big paddling pool for the garden and we both got in. You were are work!

 

Mr Button: Remember I sent you all those photos to your email.

Me: Mmmhhmmm… I do remember. Little Button was thrilled. That was a lovely memory.

 

#TheDaddyTag

 

 

Name one thing you miss since being a daddy?

Nothing.

 

Me: Awwwwwwww!

Mr Button: Actually… I miss quiet time. *Finds this very funny.

 

 

Weight gain, before pregnancy, during, after and now? And we mean YOU DADDY, not the mummy!

Is that for you? Read the question again.

 

Me: Did you get fatter?

Mr Button: *Nods. In sympathy.

 

 

Dream holiday with your kids?

A trip back home to Cyprus.

 

Me: But is that a dream holiday?

Mr Button: Disneyland?

 

 

Dream holiday without your kids or even without the other half? (You’re allowed to dream)

A round the world trip.

 

 

How has your life changed since having kids?

Life has more meaning. *Smiles a huge winning smile.

 

Me: Awwwww that’s such a lovely thing to say.

Mr Button: It’s true.

 

 

Finish the sentence “It makes my heart melt when…”

What did Dawn’s husband say?

 

Me: I will tell you after.

Mr Button: When Little Button gives me hugs and kisses.

Me: Daddy Pig (aka Dawn’s husband) said… when the kids go to bed.

Mr Button: *Snorts with laughter.

 

 

Favourite beers brands and football team?

*Perks up.  Obviously Tottenham Hotspurs. But do I have to choose a beer? I would say a nice whisky and coke on the rocks.

 

 

Huggies or Pampers?

We used Tesco’s. They didn’t leak.

 

 

Have you always wanted kids?

Yes.

 

 

Best part of being a dad?

Having unconditional love. *Smiles to himself.

    Lots of laughs reading this. They’re not half bad, these men of ours! Mr C struggled with the beer question too. Too. Many. Choices! Thanks for the nomination (it was my first ever blogging tag – fierce excitement!) Loved reading about Mr Button and Daddy Pig! 🙂

    Mr Button sounds ace! I have seen the adult equivalent of a jumperoo in town it is a giant harnessed bungee trampoline… maybe if one comes to a town near you Mr Button could be granted his wish! Xx #DreamTeam

    I really enjoyed reading this. We so often hear the mum’s side of bringing up the babies – I love hearing the male approach. I can recommend a trip around the world with the kids – start saving, it’s amazing 🙂 Alison x #DreamTeam

    I got nominated to do this by someone else so really need to get on and do it. I’m intrigued as to what his answers will be. It’s nice to get an insight into their minds aswell. #DreamTeam

    Aww I love this. My husband did it last week and it was so interesting to hear his answers. I love that your husband thinks a jumperoo looks like fun, I often think an adult jumperoo would be pretty awesome! #dreamteam

    Haha!! I would love to get my OH involved but I don’t think he would be as accommodating as Mr Button in answering the questions! He sounds like a keeper :). Thanks for hosting #DreamTeam xx

    Isn’t this just lovely? Bits of this made me giggle such as his ‘winning smile’ and when he snorted with laughter at Dawn’s hubby’s response. I asked hubby whether he’ll do it an to my amazement he said yes. #dreamteam
