What is your biggest guilty food pleasure? Cheesy anything, we just love cheese.

If you could launch back in time to the days of feety pajamas and robot night lights, which vintage flick would you pop in to your VCR for the ultimate 80’s experience? Footloose… I learned it was okay to cross the tracks. My daughter will soon learn the ways of Ren and Ariel.

What is the best piece of Daddy Advice you’ve dished to your kiddo? Easy. No shoes on the carpet.

Finish this sentence: “In case I’m senile, please remind me…” Hayley needs her Dora for bed and bring Ryan’s paci just in case

Last but not least, we have to ask… If you were caught in a “Beat It” type street fight with any 80’s action star…. would you rather have Jean Claude Van Damme or Chuck Norris on your side? Without a doubt, Van Damme. Anyone who can win the Kumite is someone you want on your side.
