My Twin Girls and Half Term 

My four year old twin girls are on half term this week. This is split between my wife and I due to our work commitments.  I start off with Monday and Tuesday. Monday  is a very long day as my wife has to do a late shift in work and isn’t home until 8pm. I have usually put the girls to bed on my own saying that the girls miss their mummy at bedtime, but they are always very good.  First thing on Monday morning R asked me to get out a table from behind the sofa. I had no… [Read More]

My Sunday Photo 

This week I have two photos. My twin girls will be five years old next Tuesday.  They had their birthday party yesterday for all their friends.  The first photo is the girls blowing out the candles on their birthday cakes.

Mojo Box Review By Fred’s Box 

My twin girls love making collections of toys and will they will usually have a theme running through their collections. So when I was approached by Fred’s Box to review their subscription service I thought this would be fantastic for the girls. Both the girls have different tastes. The one loves superheroes and the other one loves princesses so the Mojo Box was perfect as it has a mixture of mini figures and is designed specially for twins. I knew that they would have something that suited them both. I love that all the mini figures are compatible with leading… [Read More]

When Will You Charge Your Children Rent?

I left school at 16 years of age and my mother was straight to the point. Right son, you need a job because I’m not keeping you. I imagine I timidly replied ok mum! So I got a job and after a full weeks work I was given my first pay packet. It was an incredible feeling receiving my first pay packet and seeing my name written on the little brown envelope with details of my pay. It was awesome. I got home feeling very proud and I couldn’t wait to show my mum and this is where the reality… [Read More]

When Your Children Become Adults 

Image Credit  It’s a bit of a crazy thing to write, let alone live through. One day your children are going to stop being children and are going to grow into adults. Whilst your role as their parent will never be over, it is going to dramatically change. Thankfully this is a gradual thing, from 12 to 20 they develop and you learn to adapt to their independence and strong mindedness. There still comes one moment though, that will stand out against all others, where you realise, you’ve given them all you can and now? It’s up to them. They… [Read More]

Celebrating A Century Of Brilliant Dad Feature’s Tomorrow 

The Brilliant Dad Feature is 100 weeks old tomorrow. I never for one minute thought that when I started it, it would still be going 100 weeks later, but here we are!

The fact that there have been 100, with many more to come is just so hard to believe! When I decided on the questions I knew I didn’t want too many. Just questions that would hopefully make dads think about… [Read More]
