“The best part of being a dad is learning something new every day. My son has taught me so much. It’s made me learn to live in the moment, just slow down and enjoy life.”

“I’m hoping the weather will be nice and sunny [this Father’s Day] so we can go for a hike and try to spot wild animals. We love looking for kangaroos, echidnas and kookaburras.”

“Parenthood helps us discover [love] is not a finite resource, but rather something that builds and multiplies the more we let it, especially when kids are involved.”

“Fatherhood gives you perspective on life and what’s truly important. It’s great to see how focused and passionate my son is on the future and ensuring we treat our planet better.”

“It doesn’t really matter what we’re doing, no fuss is needed, as long as we are hanging out at home together. After all the stress of lockdowns, any opportunity to chill with family (without home schooling of course) is a welcomed relief! I’m sure we’ll have something big on the BBQ and something cold in hand.”

Christian Bonadio and his son.

“The plan will be lunch with my family and embracing the beautiful gift that is my son.”
