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.
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.
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.
