How outraged are you, I mean really?
How to Survive the Apocalypse
I'm not going to be a cool dad. There, I've said it!
Maybe not news to anyone who knows me, but recently the boys had convinced me otherwise.
Sonny thinks it cool that I can remove his nose then screw it back on.
Luca finds it cool that I can juggle.
I have my 40+ health check this week.
It's not helping with my post 40 denial but it'll be fine because I'm sat here drinking herbal tea, and everyone knows that replacing coffee with Chinese green tea for a couple of days can reverse twenty five years of abusing your body.
We were only in London for a couple of days, and yet Luca somehow managed to pick up the accent as well as some words that were totally inappropriate for one so young.
At first I was taken aback (OK, after initially being slightly amused) but as it continued for a few days it became more than a little disturbing.
At the park this week I was chatting with a lady about her two toddlers who were roughly the same age as Sonny and Luca, and questioned her mental state given she also had a newborn baby.
This last half-term was one of self-discovery. Of sorts.
I discovered my blood pressure is intrinsically linked to their lack of symmetry when building with LEGO, and that I'd never considered myself a control freak until Luca offered to help with MY side of the colouring-in book.
We've loved our early summer but it's also brought with it some new problems. Getting the boys to put suntan lotion on has become such a daily battle that by the time I've pinned the boys down long enough to smear it all over their clothes and in their eyes we might as well be putting pajamas on.
A couple of weeks ago I saw an advert for Gulliver's World and thought what most people do, lets go to Alton Towers! Lets face it, they don't need to advertise as every other Theme Park does it for them.
I love everything about France, even if my last trip was memorable for very different reasons. But then who's not nearly been arrested for human trafficking at some point in their lives? Really, just me?
We found a fabulous deal this year for our summer holiday. A weeks all-inclusive stay at the Yang Apartments in Edinburgh. There was even a holiday club for the boys provided by The Incredible Ben-Presto.
All this and more for the lowly price of their Auntie Jackie's sanity!
Tonka have launched a new range of toys under the umbrella of Tonka Town which I'm sure you'll have seen the adverts for, and they kindly asked if the boys and I would like to review the Fire Station Playset.
Another day, another battle over a Parent and Toddler (P&T) parking space... I really need to direct my anger in a more productive way.
