We love our fathers, especially those who have the secret identity of the heroine. One of those secret heroes is our friendly and heroic neighbor who just knows how to balance being a father, a blogger, and a hero. Three threats!
Stop, do we have a conversation with Peter Parker? However, as that would be nice, we have someone else (at least not a myth). Introducing, that dad named Skip Brooks.
Skip Brooks is the founder and editor of the men’s clothing blog Alexander Grant, describing himself as a preppy and quirky father. During our conversation with him, he reveals why he likes to wear a Spiderman T-shirt under his suit and how much to strengthen his confidence in him (let’s just hope he wasn’t caught swinging from the roof of the house to the roof).
We also learned from her conversation that her family knows just how to make Dad’s Day feel like a second birthday. We couldn’t help but explode with the awesome “awn” as he called his children his father’s best gifts.
As you might expect, the interview has become a memorable one and gave us insight into the life of my heroic father.
Well, we can rely on Skip Brooks to save the day. Keep reading to get the full interview.
JUMP BOOKS: FATHER, HERO
Is there an effort to celebrate Father’s Day especially?
Even though they are young (3 and 2), my wife somehow kept the kids excited on Father’s Day. It’s like a second birthday.
Do you have a favorite Father’s Day gift?
My kids are Alex & Avery.
How does your weekend become a style?
My dad’s weekend style usually includes polo shirts, jeans, and a cap.
What is your favorite book to read to your children?
Where Wild Things Are. I have read it so many times that I know it by heart. I will call them and repeat the letter over the phone if I can not make their bedtime.
What advice from a father would you give to other fathers?
Fatherhood is not a spectator game. For the first few months of their lives, the world of children revolves around the mother (for many obvious reasons). Make sure you do not sit back during their first few months because they are important for their development. I changed almost every diaper at first as a way to meet Alex and Avery. Aside from giving mom a break, it creates a sense of confidence and confidence that Dad will always come to save the day.
Do you want your children to pursue a family business or career?
I would like them to be legal but I want them to explore other options. For me, it could be a doctor or a lawyer but I want my kids to dream out of the box and use every opportunity of their skills and hobbies as career choices.
What is your time to be proud (so far) of being a father? Come home every day for the song “Daddy”.
Do you have an inheritance that you look forward to receiving? My rookie card by Dustin Pedroia.
