The Adventures of Daddy and Munchkin
My Wifey for lifey and my thoughts aligned when we both decided to share parental leave and give our Munchkin a equally weighted start to life. I started this blog to share my experiences.

When it came to covid-19 isolation we knew this would be hard on Munchkin. His usual week changed suddenly. Here's how we survived...
Christmas for Munchkin really began early December when the tree entered the house. He’s always been mesmerised by nature and now there was a tree standing in his living room. Then came the shiny decorations, tinsel and most importantly, the lights. Woooah! All the rest of the lights went up around the house and then […]
