One Hull of a Mum (http://www.onehullofamum.co.uk) started a new #linky recently called #childseyeview where you get your kids to take a picture and you get their view on life. A few weeks ago I showed you Bellas first selfie, this week, its Ben's turn.
A few days ago I handed my phone to the little man and told him to take photos of whatever he wanted, i got; baby monitors, his tablet, framed photos on the mantelpiece, pictures of part of an ornament and then the following should up in my camera roll......
I asked Ben about it and he said it was a 'chewing gum mustache' selfie.
So, what have I learned from this?
- Bella takes better selfies
- Ben thinks you grow a mustache on the brow of your nose
- 7 year olds are a bit mad
- He's definitely my kid
- #badlyplacedchewinggummustacheselfie could be a thing (in a weird alternate reality)
- oh, and my child really shouldnt be left alone with chewing gum
- or a camera
4 months after I became Daddy Poppins, I wrote a blog on what I'd learned so far. So now over a year in I've decided to update that list ..,, here goes ....
Recently I was contacted by RTE (our national broadcaster) asking if I'd like to represent 'stay at home dads' on a panel discussion on a program called Rearing to Go, about parental issues.
Daddy Poppins has new video software and wanted to test it out.
Daddy Poppins also had a song going round in his head for the last week.
Daddy Poppins would officially like to apologise to, first and fore mostly; Beck, Society in general, anyone involved in any kind of video production, musicians as a whole, people who's images he may have borrowed, and last but by no means least.... you
I might do better with less sleep that a most people but I'd prefer my 'night owl' activities be of my own making and involve more PlayStation, boxsets, movies and craft beer rather than the Gruffallo and 'baby nightime wind down' songs (and being used as 'a human climbing frame'). So as I wait for 'the Boo' to literally drop with tiredness, I've decided to express my feelings through memes.
Firstly and fore mostly, its not Daddy Poppins that needs settling in a creche, even if the Bear may suggest that he 'needs bloody help' on a regular basis. I'm talking about when your kids need to enter some kind of childcare, of course!
