Andy Shaw  I'm a dad of a toddler boy & #twin girls, husband to @saraduchess. I write about being a confident new dad. Also I'd like a nap please.

Well at least Quinn had a good day. #toddlerfashion #twins #babysunglasses #dadlife

Writing partner. Great with babies. Terrible with seeing where she is going. #cockapoo #needsahaircut

That #newdad hustle means staying up late to work on things when it is quiet.
There were days when this would not have been possible because newborns were crying all the time and I needed every minute of sleep possible. Now they sleep in stretches AND I basically reduced my sugar intake by 80%= 🤸🏻🔥🌞

Adding to chapter 5 in my #NewMomsGuidetoNewDads book.
Marriage as a new parent means relearning what you know about relationships. You have to find a way to still treat your husband as the guy you have chosen to spend your life with when some days you both just feel like diaper changing machines.
A great day as a dad can be in direct conflict with a great day as a husband, because there's so much demand on time and energy and focus. Moms feel that too (duh). This chapter is about finding a balance and having realistic expectations so you can maximize the non-kid moments. Sound good?

This is as close as the #twins got to the snow. Because in the spirit of honesty, it is a lot of bullshit involved in getting kids dressed up to go play in the snow so you can take one good photo and then have them cry for 10 minutes because it is cold and then you have to bring them back inside and take everything off. That is 90% of the kid in snow photos you see. Soooo kid near a frosted window pane is good enough. Bless all of you who have a kid who loves it. #parenting #honestparenting #twinsofinstagram #dadlife #instafather #fatherhood #realtalk

Hannah really, really loves talking to @saraduchess on the phone. #twins #momlife #dadlife #toddler #toddlerphonecalls #instakids

What a snow day with toddlers actually looks like. #itsliketheshining #dadlife #snowday #trapped #sendmorechampagne

Intense block building focus today while daddy recovers from springing forward. Someone without kids invented Daylight Savings. #fatherhood #dadlife #twins #twinstagram #kidsplay
