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.

Why do you take so many photos of me?!

Many months on from shared leave, I still now continue to share as there are few Dads who do. So here I will share my thoughts, experiences, and the occasional product review.

Well letโ€™s start at the very beginning. I knew that Stephen and Natalie wanted children and would not hang about in producing a little bundle of joy. So it was summer 2018, just 18 months after getting married, that I was handed this envelope. This opened to produce a pop up cube with a scan […]

An average week of Daddy and Munchkin

After a lovely weekend, which of course every weekend is, that dreaded Monday comes around again. Mummy leaves early in the morning and we are left to our own devices again.

Munchkin’s first Halloween ๐Ÿ‘ป

The holidays are one of the things I just couldn’t wait to share with our Munchkin. As an adult who never went trick or treating as a child, I can’t wait to take him in the years to come. For this year though, it was seeing his first glowing pumpkin, and wear all the scarily […]

There’s the NHS website, NHS courses, private courses, staff during pregnancy, after pregnancy and post natal care. Oh and then there is other websites, apps […]

A Solid Six to an Experimental Eight Months

The biggest changes in the smallest amount of time.

Recycle more with Terracycle

If, like me, you want to reduce the amount of plastics that end up in landfill you’ll be interested in Terracycle. Terracycle is a company with three streams of recycling.
