A-Z of Parenting

So you’ve decided to become a parent? What do you need to know? Well, regular readers will know I usually cut to the chase. I’m not a ‘word mincer’, I’m not going to pretend it will be a string of… 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.

Witchhunt for Witchhunter

An 86-year-old woman murdered in a “targeted” fire attack on her unique ‘candy home’ last Saturday has been named by the Enchanted Forest Police

Ima Notawitch (known locally as ‘the witch’) was killed during the dawn blaze at her property in the centre of the Enchanted forest. This ‘colourful character’ ‘mysteriously appeared’ in the area in recent times and proceeded to painstakingly construct a home from gingerbread and other candy based materials in the hope of finding favour with the locals, mainly working class fairytale folk. 

MOFM: CONFIDENCE IS KEY TAG

I would like to thank Cheryl from Mummy of 5 miracles for creating this tag. Firstly, she is great, I love her honest reviews and the way she doesn’t take life seriously (bar how seriously she takes being the best mother she can be). It’s clear from her blog and the way she is that her family mean the world to her and I’m sure the feeling is reciprocated. I’ve no doubt she’s a wonderful mam and if you haven’t read her posh chicken recipe then do so, (it’s not your normal recipe). Secondly, I think she’s come up with a really great idea with this tag and the fact that she thought of it as a way to instil confidence in others through praise and honesty (about what she perceives to be her own flaws) shows what a kind hearted person she is.. We’ve chatted on twitter (you can catch her here) and always had good fun and #bantz (as the kids say) but I never knew she enjoyed my blog. I honestly thought we’d just ended up in the same ‘twitter tribe’ and that was it. If this tag hadn’t been created I’d never have known that she loved my blog. It really made my day.

I’ve turned into my Mother

I read an article previously that said you turn into your mother by the age of 27. Now granted this ‘article’ (and I use the term very very loosely) was probably in one of the various women’s magazines I buy my wife to stay in the good books (by keeping her up to her neck in celebrity gossip, instead of thinking up jobs for me to do).

I’m 37, a full 10 years off but it has definitely happened. I don’t know why its taken me an extra 10 years, maybe its because ….I’m a man? maybe its because 30 is the new 20 (again women’s magazines told me this) who knows! Maybe its because I secretly* read women’s magazines (also white jeans are making a comeback in summer 2017, but that’s a story for another day).
