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
So Daddy Poppins is mid school run; the sink is full of dishes, the breakfast is in full flow, the dog is going ballistic at the the patio door window at some birds in the back garden and Daddy Poppins is regretting his late night gaming and craft beer session with every second that passes. Then a shriek from upstairs cuts through the breakfast melee....
The Bear: I'll kill you!!
Daddy Poppins: (pauses think 'what did I do?') What?
The Bear: I just sat in pee!!
Daddy Poppins: (*kind of remembers stumbling round in the dark last night trying to find the toilet and 'letting fly' in hope, waiting to hear the porcelain or water sound rather than feel the splash of warm liquid in his shins) Your own pee or someone else's? (He bravely ventures)
What I've learned from watching Boss Baby 3 times a day for a over a month..
- My second child went to baby business school too
- My little Boss Baby loves Boss Baby
- It might be repetitive but it gives you an hour to get shit done
- If you watch too much Boss Baby you will ponder the correlation between the cuteness of babies and dogs
- You'll get tired of Boss Bay before your child will
As expected it took about an hour to get there from Waterford. I must admit my first impression was "This is the best Carlow has to offer?" Now, granted I had only pulled up in the carpark and was very HANGRY!! it was 2pm and I hadn't eaten yet. Essentially it appeared to be a tourist gimmick in a garden centre in a run down industrial estate!!As expected it took about an hour to get there from Waterford.

But boy was I wrong!!

Don't worry I'm not going all educational on you. I'm talking about kids shows so good that you'd watch them without the kids.
So when they've bored you to tears with the likes of; Peppa Pig, Tellytubbies, Postman Pat and Paw Patrol you should try wean them onto this list of Daddy Poppins favorite kids shows (for adults). These cartoons will keep both parents and kids interested (with plenty of adult humour that will fly over their heads and give you a good chuckle). I've picked these shows from whats currently available on TV before you guys start screaming about your childhood favourite. So without further adieu, let's list these bad boys.
Being a stay at home dad and dad blogger I'm part of many Facebook dad groups and parenting Instagram communities and it's clear to me that as schools wind down for their summer breaks that this is 'Sports Day Season'. I see all the lovely pictures of kids racing and holding up medals. Lovely, smiley, happy kids.
