Splish Splash The Baby Shat In The Bath

Warning: If you feel unwell, have a weak stomach or generally don’t like poo talk, then do not read on. I repeat do not read on. OK, if you must, but don’t say I didn’t warn you… So, the thing which I’ve feared the most finally happened on Tuesday. No, I didn’t drop the baby as I walked […]

Review: Routes To Reading Baby Bookshop

Ever since Baby L was born, we’ve been keen to develop a love for books from an early age. On the whole, this has gone pretty well as she’s been very interested in looking and touching the books which we’ve put in front of her cute little face during the day. Reading a bedtime story hasn’t […]

The DADventurer’s FA Cup Adventures

Much like Aston Villa’s journey to the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley, I too had my own adventure at the home of English football on Sunday. Not only did I get to see the club I’ve supported since a kid beat Liverpool to book a cup final date against Arsenal in May, but I was also given […]

Family Photoshoot Fun At Ashridge Estate

Since becoming a dad, I’m very rarely found without a camera in my hand. I sometimes like to think that I’m a professional photographer, but the truth is that I’m no David Bailey. Still, that hasn’t curbed my enthusiasm for snapping anything and everything Baby L related. As she seems to change on an almost hourly basis, I’ve taken […]

Review: Mamas & Papas Armadillo Flip XT Pushchair

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Since becoming a dad, nothing gets me going as much as a pushchair – well, that and the missus of course. A nice shape, beautiful curves, very flexible and supports the baby. And that’s just the missus! I jest of course. Since giving birth, the missus is no where […]

An Open Apology To My 8-Month Old Daughter

After the ‘success’ of writing an open apology to the missus back in October, I thought I’d take a leaf out of my own book and do the same for Baby L. When I say ‘success’, I mean that the missus didn’t leave me despite me being a dick, so the public display of affection, gratitude and guilt […]

Getting The Sprog’s First Baby Passport

The missus and I aren’t the most extravagant when it comes to spending money, but one of the areas where we (i.e. the missus) are quite susceptible to splashing the cash is on holidays. In our nine years as a couple, I hate to think about the money which has been spent on flights, hotels, food and […]

Review: Konfidence AquaNappy and NeoNappy Baby Swimwear

As a kid, I fondly remember going swimming. Most Sunday mornings, my dad, bro and I used to head to a local pool to get our swim on and frolic in the water (when I say ‘frolic’ it was more likely to be trying to emulate wresting moves in the pool). The thing though is that […]

Giveaway: Win A Champagne And Chocolate Hamper (Worth £89.99)

I don’t know about you, but I’m not the greatest husband in the world when it comes to being romantic and buying the missus little gifts to show my affections. Don’t get me wrong, I’d like to get her the odd present as a surprise, but I really struggle to come up with ideas that she’d want […]

This shares some of my most ‘useful’ tips on how to survive a wedding when you’re on your tod with a baby. Check out the extract below and read the full post on Honest […]
