When TODAY Moms first reached out to Blair McMillan, we spent nearly an hour dialing, then dialing again, only to hear a busy signal on the other end of the phone.
“Sorry about that,” McMillan said with a laugh, “we don’t have call waiting.
Or an answering machine for that matter!”
What? No call waiting? No answering machine? What is it, 1986?
Stay-at-home dad McMillan, 26, is what you might call a pioneer, although instead of trailblazing ahead, McMillan has decided to take a step back.
McMillan and his girlfriend, Morgan Patey, 27, live in Guelph, Ontario, with their two sons Trey, 5 and Denton, 2. In April, McMillan had a frustrating conversation with his eldest son.
“It was a beautiful day and I asked Trey if he wanted to go outside,” shares McMillan. “Trey didn’t even look up from the tablet he was playing on and told me he didn’t want to go. It got me thinking that when Morgan and I were kids, this kind of technology didn’t exist and we were always playing outside.
