The Negatives Of Technology When Parenting In The Digital Age

The other day, I wrote a post about how I think technology can help when it comes to parenting. You can have a full read of the post here, but for those too lazy to click, I basically said that you have loads of information at your fingertips, it helps give you ideas (recipes, messy […]

The Sexual Innuendos Hiding In Our Nursery Rhymes

We were in the car the other day as we were going away for the weekend. As has become customary on long journeys, we were blasting out nursery rhyme after nursery rhyme as one of the ways to keep Toddler L entertained. As each of the earworms burrowed into my brain and made me seriously consider whether to […]

The Positives Of Technology When Parenting In The Digital Age

I was watching Terminator Genisys the other day and it got me thinking about how much we use technology in our daily lives as parents. I don’t want to give the story away, but in this particular film, we learn that Genisys – which later becomes AI system Skynet – is a global operating system designed to […]

From Dad Bod To Rad Bod (The Bigger And Better Sequel)

So for those that have read my blog for a while, this may all feel a bit familiar. In fact, I can probably guess what you’re thinking – “Oi, Dave, I recognise this blog post title. Are you so out of ideas that you’re now having to regurgitate your own content? You dick.”. Well, you’re partly […]

A Toddler-Free, Dads-Only Trip To Topgolf In Watford

I may be stating the obvious, but having a kid changes things. Take something like hobbies. Over the years, the number of activities I’ve done has slowly declined. This hasn’t been on purpose, but a mixture of things – moving out of London, having a kid, friends getting partners, becoming older etc – just makes your […]

Sharing My Favourite Holiday #DadMoments (Plus Win £1,000 Thomas Cook Gift Card!)

With Father’s Day approaching, it’s time to celebrate all things dad – although I’m sure you also do that for the other 364 days of the year too! With this in mind, I’ve teamed up with travel agent Thomas cook to not only share some of my favourite holiday memories of my dad, but also bring […]

Looking Back On Our First Family Trip With A Baby To The Seaside

The other day, I was attempting to organise our photos. At the start of the year, I had a disaster and lost loads of our digital data – I dropped my laptop when playing with Toddler L and subsequently broke the hard drive. Bugger. To make things worse, when I went to get a backup […]

School Half-Term Holidays: The Bane Of The Preschooler Parent’s Life

It’s the beginning of June. The sun is shining, there’s not a cloud in the sky and my pasty legs are on show. BUT, there’s a problem. We’re not outside enjoying the weather – instead we’re ‘stuck’ inside watching Peppa bloody Pig. No, we’re not ill and I haven’t misplaced the house keys. Instead, the reason for our entrapment […]

Mugging Off Dads: “It’s Not Easy Being A Mother…”

The missus WhatsApp’d me a photo the other day out of the blue. I’ll admit, it shocked and surprised me as she’d never sent me anything like it before. Her snap was dirty, rude, obscene and pure filth. After a few seconds of trying to comprehend what I was looking at, the image had the affect […]

Why, Why, Why? Entering The Toddler Question Phase

Toddler L has recently hit the question phase. Pretty much everything she says is some kind of question. Whether it’s enquiring about the world around her, questioning our authority or just being annoying, “why” has very quickly made it to the top of her favourite words list. In fact, I’d hazard a guess at it […]
