Down­time is at a pre­mium for sin­gle dad Greg Vaughan (Eric), who con­fesses that “it usu­ally doesn’t hap­pen un­til all the kids are in bed.” How­ever, he’s quickly learn­ing the fine art of multi-task­ing. “I use my leisure time to work out, or I take the kids hik­ing or walk­ing with the dogs,” he of­fers. That way, “I’m spend­ing time with them, but I’m ap­peas­ing [ev­ery­one’s needs].” Truth be told, when you have three school-aged boys, many wak­ing hours are spent on an ath­letic field! “My leisure time is watch­ing them grow and, when they have their sports, cheer­ing them on and mak­ing them the cen­ter of at­ten­tion,” he ex­plains. “That’s part of be­ing a par­ent: we sac­ri­fice what we do.” For­tu­nately, the “me time” does come pe­ri­od­i­cally, like when Vaughan trav­els for work projects. “I’ll go out to din­ner more often,” he shares, “and try to spoil my­self in that sense.”
