‘Twas a month before Christmas

  With the vomiting bug, we’ve all been knocked for 6 and no blog work has been done ☹️. So disregard the fact it’s actually December and take ‘a trip back in time’ to when I started this modern take on… Continue Reading →

Whats the worst Christmas present you’ve ever received?

There is nothing worse that giving or getting a crappy Christmas present is there? Whether you’ve forgotten someone and had to do some last minute gift purchase in a poorly stocked chemist (or worse still a 24 hour garage on Christmas day!!) or you’ve bought that ‘perfect gift’ and as the big ‘exchange moment’ draws ever closer you realise this isn’t going to go down well. So it begs the question…..

What parents really want (and don’t want) for Christmas

What parents want A ‘real’ gift guide: Sleep (Imagine if I had an affiliate link for this!!). A child-free hangover (Actually, no hangover at all, just the night out without the feeling of dehydrated death that follows). try adding kids to… Continue Reading →

Kids photos and internet anonymity

As a dad blogger I have a choice to make, in fact every parent does, but it’s an especially tough choice for parenting bloggers.

The choice: whether to include personal information and family photos on your blog and social media or not?

What are your thoughts on sharing your kids photos online?

START: Parenting is tough. You are tougher #sponsored post

I’m not the healthiest of humans. My wife (the Bear) often advises people she has 3 kids (a little boy, a ‘littler’ girl and big round old ‘man child’ she unfortunately  married some time ago). In fact, when I advised her I was doing this she said, “That sounds great, are they sure ‘you’re’ the right person to advise people?”, while lifting her eyebrow in that ‘you know what I mean Kebab man’ kinda way.

Scalextric Touring Car Battle #review

I hate ‘bog standard reviews’, you know the kind: I love [insert product name] I think everything about it is [great/fantastic/an income stream*], my kids loved it (even though they didn’t bother take it out of the box/refused to be photographed… Continue Reading →

Toddlebike2 Review

I’m going to keep this short and sweet because both the Toddlebike 2 and ‘the Boo’ (that’s my little lady, who ultimately reviewed it) are both ‘short‘ and ‘sweeeet‘ too!! So one of these arrived in the post awhile ago…. Continue Reading →

OPHELIA – You’re breaking my heart

So the Bear had gone to her mothers with the kids for the day and Daddy P was settling into a nice little FIFA session. No kids. No list. Nothing. Just him. Alone. AHHHHH!!! PHONECALL 1 The Bear: “There’s a… Continue Reading →

What I’ve learned in my first year as a stay at home dad

4 months after I became Daddy Poppins, I wrote a blog on what I’d learned so far. So now over a year in I’ve decided to update that list ..,, here goes ….  

Daddy Poppins on TV

Recently I was contacted by RTE (our national broadcaster) asking if I’d like to represent ‘stay at home dads’ on a panel discussion on a program called Rearing to Go, about parental issues.

Appy Kids Co drinks #Review

It’s the eternal struggle: getting kids to eat and drink things that are healthy for them. “I’m hungry” “OK, have some fruit, dinner is nearly ready” “I’m not hungry for fruit!! I’M HUNGRY FOR CHOCOLATE!!” This a conversation a young… Continue Reading →

Musical Beds

* Disclaimer: this is NOT a review for some amazing new bed which sings your kids to sleep (but if anyone out there has such a lifesaving product I’d love to hear from you). This is just me checking the… Continue Reading →

The Big Bad World versus my own little World

I’ve got a question. And it’s a big one. OK, it’s lots of big ones!! ‪So here’s the deal, I skim through what’s going on in the world then choose to ignore it or possibly make fun of it (it’s… Continue Reading →

The 20 Scariest Horror films to watch this Halloween

Daddy Poppins loves films of all kinds but one of his favourite genres is horror. The following is a list of films he’d watch again (if he’s ever awake enough once his nocturnal kids have finally gone to sleep, that… Continue Reading →

Bloggers and Christmas

I’m a f**kin’ Scrooge. (No, not really). I love Christmas. But Christmas is ‘at Christmas‘.   Early Xmas makes me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry!! 😡 I wrote a post last year about putting up your tree,… Continue Reading →

Waiting for my child to fall asleep (in Meme form)

I might do better with less sleep that a most people but I’d prefer my  ‘night owl’ activities be of my own making and involve more PlayStation, boxsets, movies and craft beer rather than the Gruffallo and ‘baby nightime wind down’ songs (and being used as ‘a human climbing frame’). So as I wait for ‘the Boo’ to literally drop with tiredness, I’ve decided to express my feelings through memes.

brush-baby – dental products review

When I get approached by a company to review a product my first questions are usually: 1. Is it something we need? 2. Does it fit with my brand? (yes, I think Daddy Poppins is a brand, don’t worry this… Continue Reading →

Settling in at a crèche

Firstly and fore mostly, its not Daddy Poppins that needs settling in a creche, even if the Bear may suggest that he ‘needs bloody help‘ on a regular basis. I’m talking about when your kids need to enter some kind of childcare, of course!

Giggle Wiggle by John Adams Toys Review

 Kids these days seem to have their heads stuck in their tablets and screens (and while I think technology, for the most part, is great for society) it seems to me to be generally a solitary pursuit (there’s no face… Continue Reading →
