Mr. Josh (Babe)

Josh Allen is Kim’s husband and the father of her two children. In daycare he is known as Mr. Allen AKA BABE! Babe, because the kids mimic what they hear. When Kim calls for Josh, if he is on premise, she calls him Babe; and the kids repeat what they hear!  Babe, in his early twenties was a professional soccer player and gave up the cleats to peruse a corporate life. He currently holds a prestigious position at NASA as a system safety engineer and on the weekends, he coaches youth soccer teams. With his natural abilities as a father and coach it is no surprise that he steps in as needed at Joyful kids In Care daycare.
