In the dad spotlight is Benny the self proclaimed party animal that turned his back on that lifestyle to become Daddy Poppins. Thanks for featuring in the Dad Spotlight and sharing your story. Let’s start with Daddy Poppins,tell me about your children and the party lifestyle. Yeah, it’s true, before becoming a dad I was interested in where my next pint was coming from to be honest. I was also interested in Friday at 5ish. Bring on the weekend! Things have changed dramatically and I’ve gone from the party lifestyle to being a full time stay at home dad. [gallery layout="justified" size="medium" ids="13696,13695,13694"] I’ve 2 little beauties; Ben, 7 going on 14 who loves dancing and talking really loudly about minecraft. And Bella, soon to be 2. The original Boss Baby who rules the roost, sleeps when she wants and demands your phone every second of the day. Sounds very exciting! I wish I could spend all day with my girls, how did you find the transition from working dad to stay at home? I really enjoyed my job and it really was the toughest decision. The quality of family life didn’t work so it all worked out for the best. Don’t get me wrong, I’d like to make a sideline in blogging/social media to help out with the bank balance and have a presence on the various sites. Www.daddypoppins.com, www.twitter.com/daddypoppinsblg, and www.instagram.com/daddypoppinsireland come find me. Oh I have already and love your content especially on Instagram. Keep up the good work! With two children that sound amazing, what was it like to bring them into this world? Did you have any complications? I was there for both, Ben’s was an emergency c section it was scary. I was left in a corridor outside the theatre for about 5 mins (but it felt like 5 hours) and I expected the worst. Thankfully Bella was a natural birth which was a lot easier to handle (for me that is ?). Ben’s birth was very traumatic no one can describe what’s it like. You have to go through it. The corridor was horrible and there was a moment when I thought ‘I want my child but don’t want to lose my wife’.
