Tales From the Dad Side
Funny and honest tales from a made-to-work Dad of three, wobbling, graying, and laughing his way through parenthood. Armed to the teeth with Nerf guns, full of pie, fighting a chocolate addiction, but genuinely honoured to be at least half of Team Parents (yay!).

You packed?
Boy9: 'Yep'
Unrelated question... Seen my phone, comics, all the house sweets, and indeed BabyBoy2?
BabyBoy2: <Muffled from inside a rucksack> 'Hallo Daddy!'
Boy9: '... No. No... Not seen them...' <Doesn't make eye contact>
Boy9: <Stops playing on my phone> <And chewing>

Right. You can play with my Lego four times, tomorrow, have this car <Points>, £4.82 and the half a pack of gum in my pocket and you will stay in bed?
BabyBoy2: 'Deal' <Spits in hand and shakes>
Where did you learn to do that? Hang on?
<Is confused> Where is your bed?...
And why do you have Boy9's Storm Trooper model?
