The Dad Diaries

I Don’t Need a Valentine; I Need Valentino!

I don’t know about you but when February comes around, I tend to feel a little more lonely; everywhere you turn you see red roses and cinnamon hearts. This pressure to make that 14th day the most romantic night of your life! It’s nauseating! As February came, it got me thinking about my single life. […]

“Prepping for the shower

I have to say that doing something so traditional as a baby shower is really bringing joy to this very anxious time in my life.  As it gets closer to the time, things are starting to get real.  The preparation for twins is intense! Not only am I getting my house ready for them but […]

“The Car Seat

So I never knew that there would need to be 2 sets of car seats.  The first is an infant seat that is used until about the age of 1 and the other is a convertible seat from 1 to about 65 lbs.  There are basically 3 stages of car seat use.  Stage 1: rear-facing […]

“The Stroller

As a single dad, I gotta choose everything. Choosing the right stroller for the twins is hard, especially when you have no idea what the hell you are looking for. So I began reading up about  strollers and decided that I would look for three things.

“My First Purchase

Well I closed my production company, sold my condo, packed my life and moved back home to Toronto.  Here I’ve been building […]

“Exiting with the Twins

A lot of people are asking me, what happens when the twins are born?  How will I get them back to Canada? Well here goes:  The twins will be born with a scheduled C-section, which means that I will be in Kenya for their birth.  Once the babies are born I will be provided with […]

“Brave or Natural?

It’s funny the reactions I get from people when they find out I’m having twins on my own. They are amazed that I would even think of starting this journey. “You are so brave.” I keep hearing. “I can’t believe you’re doing this on your own!” I don’t see myself as brave. Wanting to have […]

“Single Parent and Dating?

I went to the Banksy Exhibition yesterday with some of my single girlfriends, and we talked about dating and being single in our late 30’s. As you get older, it seems to get harder and harder to meet someone, I know with me I get less interested in the compromising that is inevitable in any […]
