As the old tale says, “When the mouse is away, the cats will play”… Just like, “When mommies are away, daddies will play.” That’s the hilarious message new fathers and longtime bestfriends, Chris Fabregas and Matt McCarty sent their wives while they were on babysitting duty one day.
Chris Fabregas and Matt McCarty have been best buddies since the eighth grade. Now that they’re both new dads, they’ve come up with a way to combine the quality time they share with their kids.
Here in California, you can take some time off of work and take care of your children. I took off six weeks. My buddy Matt has Fridays off,” said Fabregas, who works as an actor and model.
Each Friday, Fabregas finds new activities to do with his five-month-old son Hudson, McCarty, and his nine-month-old daughter, Victoria.
We’ve been calling it ‘DADDY DAY CARE’. We have breakfast, we go to the beach,'” he told ABC News.
And on one fine day, when these 2 dads left alone with their babies, the moms checked in to see how it was going. The dad’s response was classic! They set up a video camera and filmed themselves adorably dancing with their babies to the beat of Maroon 5′s “Sugar.”
When Matt and I returned back to my house, we turned on Sugar by Maroon 5. Both kids couldn’t stop laughing as we were dancing to keep them occupied. So we decided to get the cameras rolling, have our little ones dance with us, and show the moms that everything was okay!”
The dancing dads sent the video to their wives, who absolutely loved it! After they posted the video on YouTube, it just took the social media buzz. There’s nothing sweeter than a proud dad bonding and having fun with his child.
