Toddler L Appears In Lilly And Sid Spring Summer 2016 Collection

Back in May last year, I wrote about how Toddler L – then named Baby L – had been on a photoshoot with Lilly and Sid to model a few items from their upcoming Spring Summer 2016 collection. After a nearly 10 month wait since we got a sneak peek of the range, it’s now in stock, which […]

Dad Blogger Turned Dad Vlogger

I was up late the other night working. Ok, let me correct that slightly. I was up late the other night attempting to work, but was instead watching TV, faffing on social media and thinking about how I should probably head to bed. As the last Family Guy of the night was ending and I […]

Overcoming Water Wobbles During Baby Swimming Lessons

It only feels like the other day when we started swimming lessons with Water Babies, but we’re actually approaching the end of our fourth Chapter in the pool. To date, we’ve done Chapters 1 and 2, the underwater photoshoot, and Chapter 3 on two occasions. In a few weeks time, we’ll then move on to […]

Review: Lakeland Furniture Leather Dining Chairs

Since Toddler L – then named Baby L – started weaning at six months old, we’ve tried to view mealtimes as one of the most important parts of the day.

For instance, we’re just a few minutes stroll – or make that […]

Making My VERY First Magazine Appearance

I hate to sound self-indulgent, but I think it’s sometimes important to celebrate your successes. So, in my least boastful tones, I quickly wanted to share with you some pretty cool news as I’ve recently featured in a magazine. I know what you’re thinking. Yes, it’s about time I got that call from Playgirl, but unfortunately […]

I’m A Daddy With Mummy Guilt

I’ve seen quite a few posts by mum bloggers talking about the phenomena known as ‘mummy guilt’. In a nutshell, this is the negative thoughts that many mums feel and experience because of what they do, or what they don’t do, for their little ones. Reading through these posts though, it strikes me how ‘mummy guilt’ is […]

Changing Perspectives As You Become A Parent

I was pretty naive to this whole parenting lark before becoming a dad. It was hardly my fault though. I’d never really been around babies or toddlers prior to the sprog being born 17 months ago, so it was just a thing I’d never experienced. Much like ordering the vegetarian option at Nandos. With very little […]
