Quack and Field - Book Review

by , in
A week ago I received two copies of a new series of books called Quack and Field. These books are designed for children aged 3-7 years and aim to get them interested in sports.

These books are authored by Rob Foster and the artwork is by Jon Wotton. You can find the Quack and Field website here

When my son Joseph (5 years old) first saw these books, he said, "Wow! Who are those for?" 

"Me, obviously", I replied. 

"But I got sent them for us to read together and you can keep them as a special present once we have read them"

"Aw, cool dad"

Yes, yes I am.

Alice's Adventures - Growing Up

Hey everyone, I'm back! I haven't written a post for a while because daddy has been doing his stupid blogging challenge. You should have seen him when he got 1000 followers on Twitter. What a sad, really tall man.

That's me, some say I'm cheeky. Maybe I am, maybe I'm not.

At the end of September, I turned 1 year old. Go me! I'm learning new words all the time but my stupid mouth only says "hiya" constantly.

Hey, guess what? I started walking! Woop Woop. As you can imagine, mummy and daddy are really happy about my new found ability. Daddy was especially happy when I managed to walk up to the window sill and grab his phone then drop it on the floor. When I took my first few steps, mummy and daddy were clapping and I admit I was pretty chuffed with myself. Mummy was videoing it and then daddy put it on Facebook like I'm some performing monkey. He'll do anything for "likes" that guy.
