Parents often talk about the newborn and baby days being the worst when it comes to sleep. I totally agree with that, but because little is said about issues with sleep when the kids get older, there’s an unspoken assumption that all is fine.

L has just completed her first term in Reception. By association, that means I’ve just completed my first term as a school run dad. Although getting her from A to B on time is nothing new for me, the school run and being in the school playground is an entirely different beast. I’ve actually found […]

We all make mistakes as parents. I know I’ve made quite a few over the last four and a bit years since becoming a dad. However, I’ve also been involved in some ‘epic fails’ – a mistake of such huge proportions that it requires its own term to point out my unfathomable shortcomings. My most […]

As L gets older, ‘stranger danger’ is something I’m becoming more conscious about. Increasingly, she’s spending less time with me due to things like school, so ensuring that she’s aware of potential dangers in relation to unknown people is an important lesson to teach.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – babies are annoying. Sure, it’s not their defining feature, but it’s certainly up there as one of the first ten five three adjectives that come to mind when I think of those little, squishy, bundles of joy. The thing is, I’d actually forgotten just how […]

This is Edward Bear. The cuddly, little fella is the class bear at L’s nursery and he’s been staying with us for the last week. Yes, I realise that I’m writing about a soft toy. And yes, I realise that he’s not real. However, despite this, the class bear sleepover has been one of the […]

Friday night saw the missus and I have a much needed few hours away from the kids.
