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 ….
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.
Daddy Poppins would officially like to apologise to, first and fore mostly; Beck, Society in general, anyone involved in any kind of video production, musicians as a whole, people who’s images he may have borrowed, and last but by no means least…. you
We’ve all heard of ‘Bitchy Resting Face‘, well apparently I’ve got ‘Grumpy Resting Face’
There’s nothing worse is there? You know what I mean. You’re doing your thing (reading, on your phone or watching the TV) and suddenly the conversation goes like this…

Did you know that you can get cake delivered? I mean actually delivered, right through your letterbox. Waiting for you or whoever you’ve ordered it for when they arrive home from work.

Here is a tongue in cheek list of advice for all new stay at home dads. You’ll have to read between the lines as to the goings on in this mad house!!
