What is the coolest thing that you have done in front of your kids that they thought was amazing?

On The Show:

The Lunch Break hosts, Art Eddy and Jon Finkel share their incredible dad moments as they hear from other dads what they did that amazed their kids. We can’t wait to hear your stories.

Here is what our viewers said: 

Brian WincheraukWe adopted two kids 5 years ago. Suddenly having 2 kids and a very small table we ordered one from Ikea and when I was putting it together my son who was 4 at the time came out of his room and asked if he could help me. Whenever someone came over he would tell them he helped build the table with his dad.

Peter ChagnonI once tried to grab a jar of olives out of the fridge and it slipped out of my hand and I accidentally juggled it with the celery and cream cheese…my kids thought that was cool.

Mike Cody I “pulled” a quarter from behind my kid’s ear. She’s also 2 1/2 sooooo.

Shawn BaronI have two boys and one girl there four, two, and one. My coolest dad moment was when I taught all three of them how to fist bump. 

Brent Bloom Took my 3 daughters fishing with half their softball team. A huge fish yanked the pole off in the water and I dove in after it. You should have seen the girls eyes when I pulled it in and handed the pole to the first girl who wanted to real the monster in. 

Sean Patrowich 2 things. First when my son ran his first Spartan Race for kids and I ran along with him and urged him to do the obstacles when he was little unsure. The look on his face when he got over a wall or carried a heavy bucket. Neither of us will forget. Also, I had a small part in Creed 2 and when he saw me in some of the clips and promo shots and couldn’t believe it. Then he got to tell everyone in school.

Tim ShawI rappelled down the side of the hotel tower at Caesars Windsor in Windsor, Ontario Canada to raise money for disabled children! 385 feet. 

Tom Vore I wrestled spider-man in a pro wrestling match.
