Ikea DUKTIG Play Kitchen Review

Ikea DUKTIG Play Kitchen Review

As if childcare wasn’t expensive enough, nursery is costing us a small fortune in ‘extra toys’ that we have to buy because PG is so into them at nursery. Not that I’d change any of it, and I don’t really complain that nursery is expensive because she gets so much out of it. Not long ago PG fell in love with the nursery slide, so we’ve now got a slide. Then she fell in love with role play (probably natural…

All Bunged Up (Again)

All Bunged Up (Again)

As soon as we’re over one cold we seem to get another. Perhaps it’s that time of year (or perhaps other parents should keep their sick children home from nursery. Seriously people. At nursery yesterday there was a kid whose eyes and nose were streaming, had rosy cheeks and looked pretty unwell – and now everyone’s suffering!) Anyway, here I am. Wifey is out with work tonight and won’t be back till late and I’ve got a seriously stuffed up…

And She’s Off! Walking Conquered!

And She’s Off! Walking Conquered!

Our lives have just changed again. No we’re not having another baby (sorry, Mum). PG has suddenly found her confidence to walk on her own. So many things are whizzing around in my head right now this post might be random word mush. Do I no longer have a baby (probably not)? Do I have a toddler now (yes I think so)? Do I now have to be REALLY damn careful with the corner of that TV unit (definitely)? Does…

Calpol Vapour & Nightlight Plugin Review

Calpol Vapour & Nightlight Plugin Review

A whole month has (almost) passed since my last post. It’s been a busy month for various reasons, not least PG getting a stinking cold (which I’ve now got, but who am I to complain). Given that she’s slept brilliantly since she was about 6 weeks old, this was a bit of a shock to the system when it came to nighttime. After a few rough nights of her trying to suck her dummy and breathe through a properly blocked…

One Year Old

One Year Old

Gushing dad post follows, if gushing offends you stop reading now…. If my WordPress scheduling has worked, this post should be hitting your screens exactly 1 year after PG was born. 23:44 on December 30th. We’ve made it. We’re here! Wifey and I have successfully kept a human alive and well (and happy, too) for 12 months. A stonking achievement. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t have any doubt that we’d accidentally cause the little beast harm but I genuinely…

A Birthday Poem

A Birthday Poem

Here is a short little rhyme From a proud dad to his daughter She impresses me every single day With all the things we’ve taught her. To my little superstar A year has passed since you were born, Every day has been just grand. From playing hard with all your toys, To just holding your hand. I didn’t know what life would be like Once we had a kiddy. It really took my breath away When you were born so…
