Since my dear old mum is an avid reader of this blog, sex is a topic that I have (so far) refrained from writing about on YOU THE DADDY (for the record, in case she’s reading this, I’ve only done it once, and even then it was purely for procreative reasons). However, in every lovely relationship, sex is hugely important and something we should all be talking about more openly. So, to save my blushes (and ensure my mother doesn’t look at me differently from here on out),… View Post

In case you hadn’t already realised, relationships are hard work. No matter how long you’ve been together, or how in love you are, you have to put in hours of hard graft if you want to keep the romance alive. It may sound simple enough, but as we get older, as our jobs get more high pressured, and as we inevitably throw a couple of sprogs into the mix, making quality time for ‘just you two’ can become an almost impossible task. Which is why, for my wife… View Post

With snow forecast up and down the country this week, and a severe bout of bronchiolitis knocking down our little ones left, right and centre, anyone hoping we’d seen the back of winter will be sorely disappointed. Dashing any hopes of an early spring, unfortunately this February looks set to be one of the coldest on record, making it more important than ever to keep our kiddies (and ourselves) wrapped up toasty warm this month. So, for anyone on the lookout for some new cold weather gear for… View Post

Exactly two years ago today, I published my first ever blog post as YOU THE DADDY. It wasn’t anything special. Just a marker in the sand, talking about how excited/terrified I was at the prospect of becoming a father. As I said, it really was nothing special. But it was a start. We’d found out we were expecting our first baby just a few weeks earlier…and I desperately wanted to talk about it. To shout it from the rooftops. But since you’re not meant to tell anyone your… View Post

I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit it, but our little boy Teddy, is a biscuit addict. He literally can’t get enough of them. Even just say the words ‘Jammie Dodger’ in his vicinity and he’ll be begging at your feet like a lost puppy that hasn’t eaten for a week. Of course, as modern parents who know full well the health concerns (and hyperactive after effects) of giving your child too much sugar, we don’t give in to his biscuity demands very often. But from time to time –… View Post

YOU THE DADDY by You The Daddy - 3w ago

Let me start off by saying, I’m no petrol head. Sure, I love driving and take great pride in my car. But try to engage me in a conversation about horse power, tyre trims or how fast your motor can get from nought to sixty, and I’ll gloss over. Because until recently, all I really cared about was having a car that could get me from A to B. One that I could rely on, that would start in the morning (whatever the weather) and wouldn’t cost an… View Post

My name is Giles, and I’m an addict. Not to drugs, alcohol, or sex (God forbid) but to something almost as damaging to one’s family life and all round mental health. Social media. And judging by the fact that you’re reading this, I’m guessing I’m not alone. For me, Instagram is my weakness. It’s the first thing I look at when I open my eyes in the morning, and the last thing I check at night, not to mention all the times in between (which are far too… View Post

There are blog perks. But then there are BLOG PERKS! And as perks go, they don’t come much bigger than getting invited to the opening night of Cirque du Soleil’s incredible new family-friendly production, OVO, at the Royal Albert Hall. Having thrilled more than 5 million people worldwide since the production premiered in Montreal in 2009, OVO (meaning “egg” in Portuguese) is a headlong rush into a colourful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot… View Post

After 16 months of fatherhood, I thought I’d avoided this most dreaded parenting milestone; baby’s first poo in the bath. “Oh, that’s never happened to us,” I’d say smugly. “I think we’re well past that now.” I was wrong. Dead wrong. So for any new parents still to experience this inevitable right of passage (and for any who have their own baby’s bath poo story burned into their subconscious), here’s a little summary of the emotional journey you can expect to go on when it happens to you… ***… View Post

Yesterday, on my way home from work, I met a girl on the train. She was gorgeous, funny, full of life, with a nest of thick black hair hidden beneath a neat red beret and matching red coat. Her name was Louise…she was 92. I was smitten. After a long day in the office, I settled myself on the 20:18 from London Waterloo, laden with bags full of Christmas presents for Teddy from his Godparents, when in she walked. Pulling a small wheelie suitcase behind her, she sat… View Post
