“How’s Parenthood?” – “Horrible.”pepsoid

Wed, 04 Apr 2018 09:36:14 +0000

9 Years, 8 Months, 2 Weeks & 5 Days into Daddyhood – so sayeth my daughter, in relation to playing The Sims 3! Which, is turns out, is a pretty good way of teaching her about, in the case of her particular sim, the joys and trials of single motherhood. She (her sim) is always […]

On the Impracticalities of Doing Things That Are in Songspepsoidimg_1577-1

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 09:18:18 +0000

9 Years, 6 Months, 2 Weeks & 5 Days into Daddyhood I sometimes find myself thinking (overthinking) about the meaning and practicalities of things that are sung about. For example, in this song that my daughter has been listening to/singing quite a bit recently… … there is a lyric that goes like… “If you ever […]

9 Years, 6 Months, 1 Week & 2 Days into Daddyhood Every so often I think about writing a blog post about how I don’t contribute to this blog so much these days. And then I think… What’s the point in writing if all you have to write about is your lack of writing? And then […]

The Real-ness of Santa pt2pepsoid

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 13:52:23 +0000

8 Years, 5 Months & 3 Weeks into Daddyhood Following ‘The Real-ness of Santa’ I think it is possible that I now feel more sad about the loss of Santa than my daughter. I’ve been looking at some of my old blog entries (was it really 16 months between the latest entry and the one […]

The Real-ness of Santapepsoid

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 16:48:36 +0000

8 Years, 5 Months, 2 Weeks & 6 days into Daddyhood After repeated pertinent questions pertaining thereto, Mummy and I reluctantly bit the festive bullet yesterday and broke the news about Santa. I followed up with this letter, hoping to explain things further: ‘Dear Talise, You’re such a beautiful, special girl, who Mummy and Daddy […]

Nature Mandalas, Nests, Hexagons, Bees & 42-nesspepsoid

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 08:21:35 +0000

7 Years, 1 Month & 4 Days into Daddyhood My daughter has recently been ‘compelled’ to create what she calls ‘nests’ –       … which is quite a Zen-like, paganly spiritual activity in itself. But then only yesterday someone commented on a six-year-old blog post I was following, in which the  author describes creating […]

6 Years, 3 Weeks & 6 Days into Daddyhood I have my doubts about the educational value of some children’s TV programmes that purport to be educational – or have an educational element. Examples are thus… Dinosaur Train – where carnivores wander pleasantly around their environment, eating convenient piles of carrion that just happen to […]
