What do you snack on while watching television: Crackers and dip.

What do you do to relax at home: Hang with the kids. I put my feet up and hang out with them.

When something breaks, are you a fix it yourself guy, or hire someone to help: I am a fix it myself guy and my wife hates it because it doesn’t always turn out the way it is supposed to. Then I might call somebody. 

Favorite Tech toy: My IPad.

What video game player: PlayStation 3

When you get home from a game, what do you do: I lay down, the kids jump all over me.

Favorite way to spend time with your kids: Just hanging out. We play tickle monster. I am the tickle monster. I chase after them and they take off running.

What is bed time for the kids like at home: It’s tough with my two-year old. She doesn’t like to go to sleep when everyone else does. We try to get it quiet so my wife and I have a couple of hours. It doesn’t always work out. It can be chaos.  

What did you learn from your parents that you carried over into your parenting: Patience. That is one of the big things, learn to have patience.

What is the perfect family vacation: It’s going to Disney. We are not going to go for a while. Our youngest three are not ready. Ciara went when she was three and a half and was great, walked all day and slept all night. We tried to do it with the younger ones, but it didn’t work and we are going to wait a while.
