Welcome to planet Dad

Becoming a dad let alone a Gaga Dad, is probably the most amazing and at the same time life wrecking experience one can have!

To make things even more interesting, because why not! My wife and I decided that we will do everything on our own, learn as we go, and set the bar pretty high for ourselves; that is no nanny, no help from our family and parents, no bottles (our kids are 100% breast fed), and no pacifier for the kids. You get the picture!

We are now parents to two gorgeous boys Aylan born on the 18th of July 2016 at 8:30 am, and Yanis born on the 24 of November 2018 at 8:45 am.

We of course went ahead and read a lot on parenting, especially positive parenting and try to put what we learned to good use facing the challenges that 2 young boys can throw at us daily. That said we are far from being the prefect parents, as all parents we try and do our best, we don’t want to portray that image of a perfect family, but one of a normal family that’s trying to raise self-confident, positive, independent kids.

I decided to create this blog GagaDad to share my tribulations of a young dad, you’ll find here some slices of my daily life with the kids, some tips that worked for us, my take on some parenting practices, shopping ideas, and also a way for me to take a step back and look at our life from a meta angle.


My name is Hatim and I am a GagaDad!
