"It takes the stress out of my day knowing they are having fun and sharing these special early months together as I know a lot of babies don't get to spend much time with their dads."
"While he might not remember to change the kitty litter and empty the bin every day he remembers to tell his daughters and myself that he loves us morning, afternoon and evening and that is so much more important."
"I couldn't be more proud of him, he's an amazing father!"
"His daddying job ends when he tucks our twins in at night and reads them a story....Unless they wake up during the night."
"Lee has pitched in with practically everything, he changes nappies,baths children, does laundry, cleans floors, runs the kids around to their varying sports events and cooks dinner more often than I do."
"He is adored by his little daughter. From the time she was born, nothing has been 'too much trouble', spending quality time with her – playing, reading and always there to give her encouragement."
"Honestly...all in all, I couldn't ask for a better father for my children. And I think the world should to know. That's why I'm nominating him for your father of the year competition."
"Stephen totally looks after both Oscar and me, he's an awesome dad who totally spoils his family! Oh and did I mention when not at work Stephen always changes the poo-ey nappy?!"
"Kev does the cooking every night after coming home from work, doing bath & bed routine. He always tries to make these as interesting as possible even now that I am 14 weeks pregnant and suffering from nausea. He has cooked and cleaned up every night for the past 8 weeks. He must be sooooo knackered."
"On weekends he gets up at 7am (without waking me) for our daughter's first feed of the day just so I can sleep in when he needs it more than me!"
