I am excited to bring you our first guest blog – and especially this one – from Kevin (AKA Dadsense); a man after our own hearts here at QuickZip – bringing you parenting advice that “just make sense”. Here is now he defines it:
Dad•sense (n): 1)The tingling sensation when someone leaves a light on or adjusts the thermostat. 2) Parenting decisions that just make sense.
He is practical, funny, and real! And, he can change sheets and entertain BabyT – all at the same time, really! Watch it below:
Of course, there would be no one better to give us a real Insider’s Guide to the best Father’s Day gifts – and we’ve brought it to you! Here you go……..
There are always new and exciting electronics available. While dad's hobbies may differ, chances are they all involve a plug:

Sometimes it’s nice just to have some time with the family. Let dad sleep in, make breakfast, plan an afternoon at a ball game, or make a reservation at a new restaurant that you think he will enjoy.
Years ago my dad retired. As I helped clean out the suits and shirts that he would no longer need he passed me a box and said "you might get some use out of these..." Inside were all of the ties (and a perfectly clean ashtray) that I had bought him, nicely rolled and ready for new life. They say the 80s are coming back - my tie collection can't wait.
I have always enjoyed writing, but I never had a central theme. Then when my wife was pregnant I started reading anything I could get my hands on. While there was plenty of information written by mums, I had a real challenge finding a dad's perspective on the force of nature that was to be my son. When T was born I had my theme and my muse. Everyday activities were my colour palette.
Why he loves it:
I have enjoyed watching my son grow and documenting his milestones along the way. Dadsense.ca is an outlet for me, and a resource for the fraternity of fathers who want to be hands on with their children.
