The Workaholic Dad
Your current boyfriend or partner will be the workaholic dad! Let’s face it, your beau is currently always attached at the hip to their work phone. That’s not going to change once they become a Dad! Your kid could be balancing plates on their head while doing a gymnastic move and he won’t even look up from his email.
The Playful Dad
Your current partner will be the playful dad! He’s the dad that will always just be one of the kids. He wants to relive his good memories from childhood and certainly isn’t afraid to make childhood special. He’ll be the type of dad that will do everything his kid does. Swinging on a swing? Done! Hanging out in a treehouse? Consider it a privilege. He’s got a great sense of humor and a true love of being a Dad.
The Hover Dad
Your current partner will be the hover dad! We’ve all heard of helicopter mothers, but your beau will be a total helicopter dad. Wherever your kid is, that’s where your partner will be. Sometimes, he may even want to attach them by a “safety tether” or leash. You can almost always find him in a deep conversation over the peril of wood chips or the fact that the the cafeteria isn’t selling vegan or organic choices. He’ll read every single parenting book and aim to be a total hover dad.
The Geek Dad
Your current partner will be a Geek dad! He’ll be the dad that isn’t afraid to embrace his nerdy side. Dressing up as batman to make your kid smile? He’ll do that and then some. He’ll always do his best to participate in your child’s interests. This dad isn’t afraid to play dress up, act like a kid, or get down on your child’s level. The best part? He’ll be a great partner who never takes life too seriously!
Your current partner will be the coach! He’s the type of dad who can always be found in a pair of khaki shorts giving an encouraging speech or simply hanging out on the sidelines. He’ll be the type that’s always taking photos, bragging about your kid’s accomplishments, and encouraging your kids to go for whatever dreams they have!
