What if your child said they were gay?

by , in
I have been asked a few times in the last five years since I have had kids, "what will you do/say if your child is gay?"

My answer would simply have to be nothing. Why would I do anything or say anything? My only question would be is, "are you happy?" If the answer is yes, then I'm happy. I think nowadays being gay isn't something that is as taboo/frowned upon/discriminated against as much as it used to be. It's still there as there are plenty of idiots out there but I don't think it is as bad. I think people are becoming more open and understanding to people around them. Being a straight man though means I have nothing really to base this on 

Am I right in thinking this? Are there any people out there who are gay who think this is true? Or is it still something that you get discriminated against for?

bakerdays review

by , in
Anyone that knows me is aware that I love cake. I also hate post. So when I was asked last week if I would like to review a cake by post, as you can imagine I was in a bit of a quandary. I soon snapped out of it, after all, it was cake!

I wasn't disappointed.

Below is my review of bakerdays letterbox cake.

Dads: What you can expect from a teenage daughter

by , in

As most of you will know (because you all read my posts, right?) that I have two children, one boy and one girl. My little girl is 14 months old, she is a long way from her teenage years but it still doesn't stop me from thinking about it and how I am going to react to certain aspects of it. This is why I wanted a guest post from someone who I knew had a teenage daughter. My first and only choice for this was Jeff who blogs at A Dads Tale
When I started up my Twitter account and became a Blogger, Jeff was one of the first people to follow me and talk to me. I asked Jeff a few days ago if he would be interested in writing a guest post for me, he agreed and thanked me so much for thinking of him. The pleasure Jeff was all mine.
This is a great post, I know you'll all love it. Especially if you have young daughter's who are yet to reach their teenage years. I have certainly learnt something. Dad's, take note.

How do you deal with sibling Jealousy?

by , in
My children are 5 years old and 14 months old. As most parents will know who have two children, it is hard to split your time between them to keep them both happy. Especially if one is that bit older were they take it personally.

How do you deal with jealousy?

Peppa Pig - 5 Questions we need answering!

by , in
As parents, we all know that the children's TV show Peppa Pig sucks, big time. Yet our darling little children seem to love the show, much to our annoyance.

I found out a few months ago that theirs a Peppa Pig world! FML. I'll consider that as a bucket list item crossed off. If I manage to never go that is. As much as we hate the show, we all probably know the words to the "bing bong" song and the "flying high in the sky"song word for word. Thanks, Peppa creators, thanks.

I have 5 questions about Peppa pig that I think we deserve answers for.

Guest Post - 5 Things I miss about my life before children

by , in
The other day I asked my wife Kerry to write me a post on the 5 things she misses about her life before children. If you want to check out her blog click here. You can also follow her on Twitter by searching for @burnettkerry

Below is my wife's post. Enjoy.

5 things I miss about my life before children.

Our children are 5 and 1 and we wouldn't change them for the world.....well maybe just a little, if the tantrums and biting can stop thank you, that would be lovely! I love my life the way it is but sometimes when I'm knee deep in spew, and having to face a nappy that's exploded out of the sides and is seeping down Alice's legs, or when my oldest is crying that he doesn't like me because I have given him 50/50 bread instead of fucking white!! I cry a little for my old life...just for a few moments.

Does this make me a bad mum? Hell no I'm sure it makes me normal!!

The other day my husband asked me to write a post for his blog "5 things I miss about life before children". So, here goes.
