Sh*t My Kids’ Say # 47 – Heart Strings

RatBoy is a little behind the eight-ball with his speech, bless him. We’re not entirely surprised when you take into account the fact his sister can talk under wet cement, but this year he started at a new kindy and we mentioned it to his teacher. I simply cannot sing high enough praise for the […]

Dad Rites of Passage # 5 – Fear

This is the year I’m supposed to die It’s bloody stupid I know, but when I was younger I used to joke that I’d become rich and famous at the age of 30, live 3 years of a crazy, hedonistic, action-packed life and then die in a ridiculous way. It seemed oddly romantic when I […]

Budget Birthday Barbarian Battle!

It was RatBoy’s birthday and we were broke. Like, flat broke. Not in a student, ‘I’m broke but do you fancy a night out on the piss followed by a cheeky kebab and breakfast?’ kind of broke, but a, ‘we’ll eat toast for a week so the kids can have proper food’ kind of broke. […]

The Best Parenting Ad Ever (maybe)

The Mother ‘Hood’ Ad I came across this ad today and I think it’s absolutely brilliant so I wanted to share it with you all. There are so many debates and arguments surrounding modern parenting that I often feel some people lose track of what it really means to be a mum or dad… we […]
