Standing in the hospital parking lot after the birth of his first child, the full force of life's Big Questions hit him in the face: What had he got himself into? Should he call his parents and apologize? And most importantly: Where did he park the car? Dave explores the awe and terror of being a new father as he re-examines his own upbringing in a conservative Catholic family, his perception of parenthood as a kid, and the eternal battle to not become your parents.

"There are few greater favours you can do yourself than join Dave and share these special memories with him but he is only at Lunchbox until April 19 and I have a feeling once word gets out Dad, Day 1 is going to become one of the hottest tickets in town".
