Chatting with Casey S01E05

Everything falls a little behind when it comes to Father’s Day.

On the third Sunday in June each year, Father’s Day falls smack in the middle of a million other things. The first glimpses of summer for those of us too used to dealing with winter. Wrapping things up in the last days of school, especially if you have exams. Or if you’re the busiest Dad Blogger in Toronto, it means trying to fit thirty hours into 24-hour days, realising that while trying to do everything might be possible, it probably isn’t healthy.

Chatting with Casey 0005—You Don't Want to be That Guy—The Flight Pack

With plenty of content this week showcasing my life as a Dad, I wanted to try something a little different for Father’s Day. With the help of some of the contacts I’ve made so far, I put together a couple of interviews looking at different aspects of fatherhood. ROGUESTORIES’ Gloria Chik talked about the Flight Pack, a modular toiletry kit for travel that’s both super-stylish and functional. And Chris, a Wish Dad with the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, who let me know all about the organisation and what it means to him and his family.

My goal is to get us thinking about fatherhood in ways we normally fail to consider—I feel like this episode’s a step in the right direction!

Enjoy it!

Until the next,

Sounds like everything is going good with your new adventure. Happy to read that. Still sounds like you’re super busy though, lol. If it makes YOU happy…!
I feel the same about Father’s Day as I also remember the day my Gramma passed away. Obviously not the same date but it was on Father’s Day regardless. Then there’s the end of school for the kids which includes trips & Gallas (Graduation, Concerts, etc), a long-weekend followed by another long-weekend (QC) & dialysis 3 days a week. I’ll be glad for July, lol.

Can’t to read more of your chats Casey!

Hey bud, sorry it took me a bit to get to your comment — as you can tell, the hustle is all too real over here!

We’re one step closer to the summer, right? I’m writing this as Father’s Day’s wrapping up and most of the madness is behind me ? Still much to do, but one by one getting them off the list.

One day at a time! Good luck!
