They got a great APP, so you should download that too. So let's get into it. Why did I want to be a dad? That's probably the number one question that everybody asks me. Like you're good dad. What made you want to be a dad? What made you think you wanted kids? What made you want to be so involved in their lives? So I'm going to take the story back. When I was young, I didn't know that I wanted to be a dad or a good dad. You know, my parents got divorce and I was really, really young and then I had a step dad. It was kind of an asshole. So I didn't I didn't really want or desire to be a parent, and then I went to this summer camp called Mount Cross and Santa Cruz, California, just south of San Francisco, and a buddy of mine invited me to go because he was going to be a summer camp counselor there. And it was like a couple weeks before the camp was going to kick off and they needed people, volunteers, to come fix the camp up, painted, fix the trails, do all that kind of good stuff. And my buddy said, hey, you know, why don't you come hang out for the weekend, come up to this summer camp? You know, we'll do some chores, they give you some food and and I was hesitant. I wasn't, you know, plan on going to do some free work. It's some summer camp. And then he said the key words, there's going to be lots of girls. I was like, I'm in, count me in. That's my spot. You Know Your your nineteen, twenty years old. There's really nothing else on your mind except young ladies. So I went to mount across. I went there. I went to go help build, you know, hiking trails and fix up the cabins and paint everything and clean up the camp so to it'd be already when the kids got there for the summer. And, low and behold, we show up to the camp and my buddy bounces off with this girl that he had met when he was in summer camp years prior. So now I know...

...nobody. I'm sitting this summer camp all by myself and I, you know, I'm working. They got me sweating out there. I was actually like digging these holes, which was comical because I'm not really much of a handy hole digging type of dude, but I'm digging these holes and lunchtime comes around and I'm looking for my buddy. I don't see him anywhere and I just start playing some pickup basketball with these little kids that are, you know, their parents are there volunteering as well, and I'm playing this pick up basketball game. I'm having a great time. It was fun. And then they ring the bell and we all go up to go get some lunch and I make my plate and I sit down and, as gentleman asked me, he goes Ay, you want to work at this summer camp this year, and I kind of looked at them crazy. I'm like, why would you want me? Like, Hey, I know nothing about kids, don't even know if I like kids. Be You don't even know me. I could be like an axe murder or something, and why would I want to be stuck in a mountains all summer long? And who in their right mind would give me this job you're talking about? And he said, well, I saw you playing with the kids, playing some basketball, and I think you know we're short mail staff and I'm the director of this camp and I think you'd be a great asset. I'm like, holy cow, Mike, all right, cool, you know. How much does it pay? Oh, barely, nothing. Like sign me up, sucker. So I start working on Mount Cross and I'm just having it is God like put me in the right place at the right time and, as we all know, he's got a plan for our lives. And God took this camp, this little tiny camp, and Santa Cruz California, and he put in my life and from that moment on I had a love for children that never stopped. It was bananas. And even like time after that, like people like, Oh, you're going to get married, you gonna settle down, you gonna have some kids. I knew kids were in my life, but the wife wasn't. I'm like maybe I'll adopt, maybe, you know, I'll do something, have some foster kids, but then I ended up getting married and that, you know, unfortunately came to an end after eleven years, but we did come out of that with two amazing kids and that was really like the rebirth of my life. A lot of people say, you know, when they come to Christ late in life, they have another birth. That's like, you know, they're baptized and they're born again Christians or born again this or born again that. I really have to say that the day that I was blessed with my first child, my life change and of course God gave me a little girl, because he's a funny God and he cracks jokes. And then he gave me another little girl, because you know what's worse than one little girl? But two little girls for a guy with the checkered past, really keeps you up at night, even when they're little. So that's that's a little bit about myself and that's a little bit about what brought me to find this love, in this passion for children. The other side of the coin is how I do things completely different, I think. Basically, when I was deciding to be a dad, and of course I read every book, you know, before my ex wife got pregnant and wanted to do everything right the right way. I read all these books and got all this information and basically threw it all out the window. It it didn't make sense to me. I didn't understand a lot of the practices that these people were doing, and so I've thrown it all out the window. I've done things completely different. I've messed up a lot and I've succeeded a lot, and from every mess up I've learned something. It's not every day that you know you drop your kid off their changing table and but you know you learned from not mis Ake. You say, all right, next time, I'm going to always keep a hand on the second child because she's crazy and she flails around and her sister didn't do that. Her sister would sit there and let me change your diaper like a thousand times in one day and wouldn't even move. But not ava will get to her later. So I do things differently. I'm not the typical parent, which is very unique when you go to the playground. I was a stay at home dad. I'm still kind of consider myself a stay at home dad, even though I do some work to bring an income. My kids are my priority and they come first. My schedule is definitely based around their schedule, their school schedule, field trip schedule, everything, brownies, you name it. My schedule is based around their schedule. So I still kind of consider myself a stay at home dad. And it's funny because when you're stay at home dad and your kids are one or two and you go to the playground filled with a bunch of stay at home moms and you know they're like got antibackwipes coming out the WAZOO and they're doing all...

...this stuff and your kid drops the passive fire and you kind of just stick it in your mouth, suck the dirt off and give it back to him. They look at you different. They like what's up with this guy? But my kid never got sick until they started going to school. So there's that. You know, not for nothing, but there's that. Maybe a new hygiene tip for some of the parents out there. No, not so much antiback and it doesn't smell good as much as you think it does. Not doesn't done smell good. So it's different. I've always done things differently and I've allowed my kids to do things differently as well. I've allowed them to do things on their time. My youngest daughter didn't start talking till she was like almost four years old. I can understand everything she said, but nobody else could, but that was cool with me. I didn't think that she needed any special doctors or classes or any of that stuff. And now anyone who knows ava knows that she done shut up. Kid talks seven until she goes to bed. So it all catches up. But I definitely do things differently. So we're going to take a quick break. We're going to come back to now this song we're about to play. Wendy's about to drop this song. This is the first dance for both of my daughters. The moment there was born, the first time I held him in my arms, I played this song and in case they're listening, will probably listen after school just so they know now this is going to be our daddy daughter dances when y'all get married too, so just remember that, because I don't want to have to keep repeating myself. So here we go. We got a little bit. Isn't she lovely? Me and my daughter's very first dances. Enjoy and we'll be back in a minute. This is dad's swag shown will be back right after this, but we happy. Wow, hold on your book.

Oh, four to one, zero, six, four zero. So what is a dad with swag? I'm sure there's a lot of listeners out there wondering that right now. A Dad with Swag it's basically any dad with a love or a passion or a lifestyle that they embrace and they own it. I have met some of the swaggiest people in my life working parking, lot of tendant jobs. The Custodian at my high school was probably one of the swaggiest people I've ever met. He just had this aura about him that transcended everything, the way he walked, the way he talked, the way he acted. It was just straight swagger dripping out of his pores. So if you're a dad and you have a passion for cars, boats, comic books, shoes, hats, watches, kids, women, men, it doesn't matter, whatever it is, and you add a little something something to it, then you are definitely a dad with swag and we'd love to hear from you. We'd love to have you on the show, we'd love to have you call in, we'd love to have you part of our community. If you know a dad who has some swag to him, maybe it's your own dad. We're going to have a contest later on in the year, probably right around father's Day, we're we could. We're going to nominate and select the swaggiest dad of the year. So if you know a dad out there, maybe it's your husband who's a swaggy dad, or maybe it's your dad or your grandfather, your great grandfather, whoever. Maybe you have a cousin, a brother and uncle and you think they are just kicking ass when it comes to this dad thing, then hit us up once again social media, at your coach Sawn email website, call us in, get all of us anyway that you want. But this podcast, this isn't just for DAD's. Let's be clear. This is for any parent out there, even people who aren't parents. Maybe you don't have kids but you're thinking about having kids, or you're not sure if you want to have kids, or you just want to know why that kids sitting behind you on airplane won't stop crying. Listen to the show. There's going to be great tips, great advice, great information for all aspects of life. I know that I have some guests coming on the show in the near future talking about different nonprofit stuff that they do. I have some entrepreneurs, some young entrepreneurs, coming on the show. I have a young lady coming on the show. She's going to talk about how it's so hard to date being like a thirty something year old girl with no kids in that biological clock is just ticking away and she's going to come talk about like what it's like for women out there in this in this environment, and she has a pretty swaggy dad too, so we're going to get some information on that. That'll be a cool episode. You're not going to want to miss that. But this shows for everybody. It's for Moms, it's for DAD's, it's for grandparents, anyone who just wants to have a good time.

You know, it doesn't always have to be about the bright, sunshiny stuff that we talked about all the time. You know, this show should be able to have the ability to get down and dirty, get raw. I've already told you that I drop my infant baby off a changing table. I think you know, you guys know that we all make mistakes and from those we grow. Those are probably some of our biggest parenting moments. So it doesn't just always have to be about these amazing triumphs that we have as parents. You know, we could, we could have this forum right here to get open. You know, what's the biggest regret you have as a parent? You know, maybe you forgot to pick your kid up from basketball practice, or maybe you chose was a work trip over your kids birthday party. You know, it's endless, but whatever it is, let's talk about it, let's figure it out, because I guarantee you that you're not the only one. I guarantee you, out of all the billions of people on this earth, a lot of people have done the exact same thing that you've done and we can't beat ourselves up about it. We gotta laugh about it, brush it off and move on. Tell our kids were sorry, we made a mistake and it's time to move forward. Put the past in the past where it belongs.

Oh Fo two, one, zero, six, four one. Hit US up on social media at your coach Sawn or email me, sean at Sean alfonsocom by. We're going to get into the nitty gritty. We're going to talk about my babies. So first we have Isabella, Sweet Isabella, eleven years old, amazing kid. I meant my firstborn, Isabella and I have a very, very unique bond. Before Isabella was born, like a week before she was supposed to be born. Maybe to my memories not that good. As been eleven years now. But I was diagnosed with testicular cancer and we're in like the middle of nowhere, New Jersey, for my ex wife's job, and they're like, you know, long story short, after all these doctors saw me, they're like, we need to like helicopter. You'd a Slung Ketterer in New York because you need help now. And remember my daughters about to be born. And basically I told him, hell no, there is no way you're getting me on an airplane or a helicopter and take me to a different hospital and I missed the birth of the daughter I've wanted for so long. So I said, I don't care what you have to do, you're going to do it here, because heaven forbid you have to push me in my hospital bed into her delivery room. I'm going to watch my kid be born. But God's always got your back, like I know he does, and he handled that situation. He gave the doctors all the knowledge, all the skills that they needed to hook me up, fix me up good. Isabella held on for dear life. She stayed in Mommy's on me for a couple more weeks. So Daddy got better and by the time she came out I was perfectly healed. So thanks to God, thanks to her, thanks to everybody. But we have this little bond, this little special bond that I think I know that she stayed in there a little bit longer because she knew how important it would be for daddy and she cracks me up, that kid. She so she's eleven years old and she has a crush, like an insane crush, like a huge crush, and thanks to dad, like it, lucky me, I'm like a grateful father here, that her huge insane crush is on the Flash, grant Gustin. This this dude who I guess he was on Glee. I don't really know much about him, but he was on glee and now he plays the flash on TV and we're not really into superheroes in my house, but Isabelle is all about the flash now. She has flash bows, flash clothes, everything's the flash and grant Gustin is her man. So if anybody knows Grand Gustin how to hook up with grant or knows maybe grant's got his swaggy Dad, we can get him on the show. Belle would just flit. But yeah, so she has an unattainable crush, which is really cool. Is a dad of an eleven year old, because I don't want her having a crush on a boy that she's gone to school with since she was four years old. I want her to have a crush on a dude that's living in La about twenty years older than her, and she has no chance, Agattin, and I tell her that all the time to just so when the blow does come, when grant Gustin does not take her to prom, it'lls offten the blow a little. And of Grant Agustin decides to try to take her to Prom, then I must off and out blow a little too, because there are no way the Dayton. I'll tell you that right now. An autograph, yeah, kiss on the tree, sure, a firm handshake, definitely. A Hug, possibly, but that's about it, grant, don't push your luck. So Bell, she's crazy. She loves basketball. She's playing...

...basketball now. She was playing golf before that. Didn't like soccer, one of the only kids in America probably that didn't like soccer, and I was all jacked up. I'm like, I'm gonna be her soccer coach. Me and my Buddy Brett, we like. He has a son Asher. We are the coach of the team. We put our kids in. As soon as I put Isabel in the game, she'd raise her hand and she'd be sub I'm like, are you kidding me? You can't sub out of the game you just got in. She had wanted nothing to do with soccer. She didn't like the running, she didn't like the kicking, she didn't like anything about soccer. So we hooked up with some golf. She had an amazing golf coach. He actually is here locally in Phoenix, and not a lot of our listeners probably are in the Phoenix area because this show goes worldwide. But if you are in the Phoenix area or you ever come to the Phoenix area, you got to hit up the Phoenician and check out coach Mike if you want like a little brush up on your game. Dudes, awesome. So he was Isabella's golf coach and she liked that for a while, but now she's in the basketball and she's playing basketball for her fifth grade basketball team. Actually, tomorrow is there march madness. Their own little I guess they call it April madness. Their own little championship bracket that they got going. So she's got a game tomorrow at thirty in the morning, which will be fun. Dad's going to be hitting up to barbecue. It's going to be a good day of basketball games and all kinds of stuff, and I volunteered to barbecue. That's like a typical dad job to when there's like volunteer requests, I usually volunteer for like two things. I'm either in charge of the games or on barbecuing, or I'll bring snacks. That's about it. Other than that, I'm really like not too useful at anything else. I remember one time I try to do be in charge of the arts and crafts at a school party. Did Not go over well. Let's just say like paint and places. Paint never should be like one kid done glued her hair to her hand. It just was not good. So I'm must stick in my lane. I'm going to keep it with the Games and the barbecuing, because I can work a grill like none other. So Isabella is like a preteen now. You know, she's changing, which is cool, and our relationships changing, which is pretty neat to she started to become her own woman and I think this is a specially as a dad, is like a really important time for me to be around and be engaged in her life because, like I've told so many people, our daughters will let men treat them the way that they see us treat women and the way they see us treat them. So if we want our daughters to be strong women and strong lovers and independent thinkers, then we need to show them that. We need to step up his men and show these young ladies that they can do all things and they could be anything for themselves and for anyone else. Is Funny because I'm a firm believer and like opening doors for women and even when I was dating, like a lot of girls would open their own doors and it Piss me off and I never really I didn't like it. Wasn't a good look. I understand that you could open a door. I know you're physically capable of opening the door, but let a man be a man. Let me do it, open the door for you every once in a while, say thank you, give them a nice smile. Done mean nothing, done mean you can't do something. Doesn't mean that I'm stronger more powerful than you. It just means I want to be respectful. So I got a trick. My Daughter's eleven years old. I still keep the child locks on on my car. There is no way my kids can get out of my car and less daddy comes and opens the door. And I hope that when they're dating they will sit their ass in their seat to the man walks around that car and opens the door and if he doesn't, they'll stay seated, plain and simple, because they windy's over here cracking up. She's you man. Yes, she's done this is hilarious, but it's true. Men We have to we have to be men, and we have two jobs, really, maybe three. One, protect our women, to support our women, and three, open a damn door every now and then. It's not too hard, it's really easy. So she's just crazy preteen and she's changing. She doesn't know, like if she wants to be a daddy's girl or is she wants to be in love with grant Gustin. She doesn't know if she wants to play with my little ponies and barbies or she wants to be on like instagram. It's cool. It's a pretty cool age. So if you have an eleven year old twelve year old kid out there hit us up. I'd love to hear the similarities in the differences and our kids, I'm sure. I'm sure...

...it'll be a fun time. And now a little bit about Isabella's personality, because as this show progresses, I'm going to talk about these kids and I'm going to tell you stories and it's important that you get a little glimpse behind the curtain. Isabella is just like her daddy, very, very introverted. I know that, like on the show, I'm going to sound extroverted and you're going to be like, oh my gosh, it's dudes, the life of the party, but that's just because it's windy and I in this spot, like this whole place is empty except her me, and it's amazing view. If this room was filled with like a couple hundred people touching me and bumping shoulders with me and eyeball in me, I would probably be sitting in a corner on my phone or reading a book or looking at a newspaper or pretending I'm like looking at artwork as opposed to talking to anybody. And anyone that knows me knows like a hundred percent that's exactly how I am. I just you know I'm introverted. I need my time, my space, and sometimes, yeah, I could, I could whoop it up and have a good time with the best of them, but most of the time I like to have me time and I like to have time where I can just sit back and reflect and I like to have a lot of indepth conversations and personal conversations. I'm not a big fan of small talk, like I don't really care how the weather's outside, like if it rained on you, tell me how that experience changed your life. I'd be down to hear about that. But other than that, like, I don't really have time for this bullshit like small talk. It's weak. So either come at me like with some good conversation and let's get to know each other and let's dive deep, or just give me a what's up with your head and keep on walking. So Isabella guess that for me, and she's been like that since she was born. Like I remember when she was like an infant and I'd be pushing her around the grocery store and first of all, anytime there's a man pushing a kid around the grocery store, women come to you like you thought having a dog was a good like babe magnet. Like if you have a nice or a nephew or a friend that just had a kid and you're looking to like catch a man or a woman, take that kid out. Guaranteed will attract the opposite sex like flies to honey. So people would come up to us all the time and like anyone that would like look at Isabella or want to touch as Abella, she would like wince and like go and like make this weird noise and just like close her eyes and wouldn't want anything to do with them whatsoever. And then as she grow up and we'd be like in situations where we meet New People, she's always been polite and respectful and she'll always shake hands and she'll always refer to people as you know, Mr Smith or Mrs Smith or whatever. It may be very respectful, but she doesn't talk much and everybody would say, oh, she's so shy. That would piss me off. I don't know if kid people out there have introverted kids, but I'll tell you me, when people call my kid shy, it really like why going pigeon hole my kid? Don't label my kid. Only I couldabel my kid. It's my kid. If she's gonna go to therapy in twenty years, it's going to because a dad, not because of a stranger. So I didn't like that. And the thing about it is she's not shy. Like once you get to once she gets to know you and you get to know her and she's in an environment that she's comfortable with it, she is one of the most outgoing, goofy, crazy kids you will ever meet. Like when family comes over or friends of family come over, or we host like a dinner party or whatever, have some people over, she's putting on like show after show after show, singing song after song after song. She is like out there. But what she is is she slow to warm. That's what I call I labeled it myself, slow to warm. She's not shy. She slowed a warm up to you. She's got to determine whether or not you're cool or not, whether or not she wants to like you or not like you. Maybe you're stranger danger and she needs to get out of there and get out of there quick. She doesn't know yet, so cut her a break. She's slowed to warm, which is a crack up because I have ava and ABS, my baby daddy's little baby girl and Ava's eight and Ava I have called. I don't want to offend anybody, so please don't take this like the wrong way, because I know that there are a lot of families out there to deal with this situation and it's real and there are a lot of families that are dealing with the hardship of this and it's a real hardship and I don't want to belittle that or anything like that, but I've labeled AVA my crack baby. Now, by no means has my ex wife ever done any cracker. She's really not a crack baby. But if you met A va, you would be like, Holy...

Shit, that kid is on crack and she's been that way since she was born an infant out of a womb, came out flying like Superman. From the moment that kid wakes up, total moment that kid goes to bed, she is a hundred miles an hour, non stop, the biggest, brightest smile you've ever seen in your life and she feels that she can solve all the world's problems one hug at a time. From the time it takes when I walk my girls into their school, I take Isabella to her locker first, give her a kiss. Have a great day. It takes it's about a two minute walk. Should take me about two minutes to get from where we drop Isabel off to where we got to take ava. That walk takes a good fifteen twenty minutes because Ala has to hug every single teacher that we pass on the way to her class. Every teacher, doesn't matter, their teachers that have since left the school that tell me the highlight of their day every day was getting a hug from Ava. She gives the best hugs in the world and she's crazy. She is an extrovert, straight up extravert. Ava doesn't care if you were homeless on a park bench or your mother, Theresa herself. She will come up, she will hug you, she will talk to you, she will take candy from you strangers. Please don't give my kid candy, because Abel will take it. If you offer Ava Candy, she's eating it. Hard candy, soft, does not matter you. It could be dirty candy. Ava will take your candy, so be careful when you hand in my kids stuff, please. And Ava likes all kinds of stuff. Ava likes dolls, she likes pony she loves you know, all the stuff the kids. She's really into doc mix stuff and right now she's got like this little doc mix stuff in his car that she likes to push around the house. Cracks me up. Ask her she wants to be a doctor when she grows up. She's like no, I'm like a Vo what do you want to be when you grow up? She's like, Oh, I don't care. Right now, it doesn't matter. Mike, all right, cool, you know whatever, you'll pick something. She goes, maybe I'll write newspapers. Like by the time you have a job newspapers and going to be around kid. I want to think of something else. She's like, well then, maybe I'll be president of the United States. I'm like very cool. I'm like because when like a different dignitary to you know we're not getting along with, comes into the room, just going to give him a big ass hug. Piece right there there it is world bees. Ava Hug them. Yes, she loves soccer. Now, Isabel I didn't love soccer at all. AVA loves soccer. Why? Because she's a crack baby. The kid loves to run, run, run around. That's all she likes to do. She gets out there on the soccer field. Very little athletic ability, mind you, but she is having a the last out there. She loves it and she has the imagination. That is just amazing. And you know she is funny. She her school does this contest where they get a bunch of different grades because the school they go to, they own a bunch of different schools worldwide, and they get like all the second creators and they have to like make songs and then they get all the second grade songs and they vote on which second grader like made the best song and it's pretty cool because they have to like write the music, write the lyrics. I compose this complete piece of music and it's only like sixteen bars or eight bars. It's not long song at all. But it's funny because Ava song was all about food and it was a great song and it got submitted to like the fight. Like she was the top three at her school. That got submitted to the finals and it was a great song. It was so catchy, so funny. But I asked her, I'm like, AVA, why did you write a song about food? She Goes Daddy, we have music right before snack and I was really hungry. I'm like all right. There you go. You know, art imitates life. Way To go. You had a feeling. You wrote about food. A dude's going to break your heart one day. You won't write about punch them in the nose. I'm like this. So you could be like the next Taylor Swift. This can be really cool. So basically, that's my girls in a nutshell, the loves of my life, Daddy's girls through and through everything I do, I definitely do it for them and their happiness. So we're about to hit this next commercial break. This song needs no introduction because you're listening to dad's with Swag, so you know we got to play a little biggie. Here you go, Big Papa.
