This is a guest post by Dad, Simon Gamack from The Dad Zone Podcast
As a Dad, there’s nothing more coveted than Dad time. A moment that’s 100% just for you.
Like that one time you got home early from work, wife and kids were out, empty house… so many possibilities. It felt like walking into Wonka’s chocolate garden for the first time. A world of pure imagination.
That feeling of elation and wonder, which only lasted 4 minutes until everyone else got home, is why I’m writing this. I want to help you experience this amazing sensation. I’ve developed a list, nay a guide, nay a survival manual on how to capture the dad’s equivalent of Moby Dick. (We all know what Ahab really wanted. Why else would a man go off to sea, chasing a giant white whale unless he wanted some alone time. He probably had twins).
1. “I’ll do the dishes tonight babe”
Whether you have a dishwasher or you are the dishwasher (as is the case in my castle) this play is a win-win. Not only do you get a solid 35-40 mins of QDT (quality dad time) but you also get brownie points that can be redeemed at the concession stand for super bouncy balls and mini slinkies.
