Sh*t My Kids Say # 36 – Get F*cked!

I took RatGirl to the school musical last week and thought we’d make a proper date of it by going out for a meal together first. She wanted to wear her Elsa dress (bloody Frozen!) and so the Missus spent some time putting her hair up before we went out and I realised pretty quickly […]

Dad Rites of Passage # 1 – Conception

This is a big one so it deserves to come first (no pun intended, get your mind out of the gutter!) In the words of my dearly departed and sorely missed Nan-in-Law, “it’s a miraculous thing isn’t it, getting her pregnant. One Splooge and your job’s done!” Wow Nan! Just wow! I bet she’s still having a […]

Superdad Speedbible – A Book Review

Ryan Heffernan, as it says on the back of his book, is an Australian television producer, investigative journalist and writer. Ryan is also a member of The Aussie Daddy Bloggers Network and a damn fine bloke. His website, Superdad Speedbible is awesome!

The Dadrites’ Guide to Standing out like a Sore Thumb on the School Run

This morning I did the school run. I used to always do it when the kids were in kindy but now RatGirl is in school (and I’m a teacher) I just can’t fit it in. This morning though was a bit of a cluster fuck at home and so I called my own school and said […]

World Cup 2014 – The 5 Year Old Pundit

If, like me, you suddenly find yourself wandering around the house in the wee hours of the morning pawing at the TV screen, mewling for more football to appear, then you probably spent the better part of June/July watching every single game of the World Cup in Brazil… but like a 5 year old on a mountain of […]

Dad Rites of Passage – An Introduction

“It seems that it is only the recent West that has deemed it unnecessary to “initiate” young men. Otherwise, culture after culture felt that if the young man were not introduced to “the mysteries”, he would not know what to do with his pain and would almost always abuse his power. It looks like they […]

Daddy Daughter Dates

This morning on Sunrise they had a little feature about Daddy Daughter Dates, specifically, a video of a man who pulled out all the stops for his little 3 year old. Rather than me explain, here is the video… First of all, well-done mate! You are a brilliant father and you’ve created wonderful memories for […]

Sh*t My Wife Does # 15 – Passive Aggression

I’m not 100% sure if ‘Passive Aggression’ is the correct term here to be honest, but I can’t think of a better way of describing it, and ‘Sh*t My Wife Does # 15 Be A Sarcastic B*tch’ just seems unnecessarily harsh! I was in the kitchen with the kids after they had their shower and […]

Lego Dad

The Lego Movie has awoken a sleeping beast. It had been lying dormant for nearly 20 years but now it is back and it is hungry! So very very hungry! I freaking LOVE LEGO! And I think I’d forgotten just how much until recently, but now I have kids and they love Lego too! Let […]

Sh*t my Wife Does # 16 – Teaches the Kids to Fight Dirty

Yesterday evening I got home from a long day at work, with the prospect of more work in front of me, so I decided to attack my children instead of facing it. I chased RatBoy and RatGirl around the house and through the rooms, playing “pew! pew!” with the boy and “hi-yaa!” with the girl. We […]
