This is funny as this Dad refers to how it felt, like he was going back to school himself. How he thought the headmaster might come and tell him off. I can understand that!

There are some great tips here. Again, N is far too young but some of you may find this useful if your little ones have just started school. I particularly like the emphasis in many of the tips on getting involved with the school. Get stuck in as much as you can, I’m sure you’ll be rewarded in many ways.

Take a read. Are any of these tips useful for you?

5 Things Every Stay At Home Dad Is Sick Of Hearing

Not being a stay at home Dad it’s interesting to hear the thoughts of one and see what other people say to him.

Many of these, interestingly enough, non-stay at home dads have mentioned hearing before now too, but not all. What’s interesting though is reading these as a Dad myself. Many of these are just offensive. They’re not funny, not amusing in any way. They are just offensive and show a level of ignorance of the modern world.

Take a read. The first three are particularly offensive.

At times I think every parent needs time to themselves. I also think it’s good for the children to see the parents going out socialising, having time to themselves. It’s healthy to do your own thing sometimes and helps you to come back refreshed for the challenges ahead.

It’s an interesting read this one and gives you pause for thought. Take a look…

It comes to all parents. I’m a long way off this yet as N is too young, but at some point he will stop having a nap. As exciting as that will be and as much as that will save us thinking about fitting in a nap time, it will be some relief when he does stop napping during the day.

However, at times the naps are a time to just sit down and pause. To have an uninterrupted drink. To have a snack. To watch that TV programme that you’re addicted to. These pauses during the day really help you keep going and recharge your batteries. When they stop, it will be non-stop!

Read this dads thoughts for his thoughts on the loss of nap time….
