Why did you choose that primary school?

One of the primary schools we’ve looked at for our boy sent him a Christmas card and present, a book. To paraphrase Tom Jones wrongly, is this usual? Did you get any sweeteners from perspective schools and did it sway your decision? Feel free to let me know via the comments or @anunknowncomic Thanks
Ps we did put the school down but it had nothing to do with the gift, honest!

Should you have a spare 32mins maybe on a commute then check out my comedy prongcast. Cheers

Chores & childcare.

My boy likes to hoover so I’ve incorporated it into the long afternoons when I’m looking after him. I don’t know if domestic chores is on any early years curriculum or if it has developmental benefits but the flat is cleaner. Feel free to let me know what everyday things you’ve been able to convince your children are fun. Contact me via the comments buttton or @anunknowncomic Cheers.

How do you swing?

I spend a lot of time in playgrounds (I HAVE A YOUNG CHILD). A large part of that time is spent pushing my boy on the swing. This time has in no way been wasted time as it’s enabled me to witness the different techniques at play. People either push from behind, the front or stand at the side and swing the chain. Which is your preference? For what it’s worth I’m firmly in the push from behind camp. Feel free to let me know your thoughts, either via the comments button or @anunknowncomic

Fiscal planning.

My current financial strategy is based around the fact the football season has now ended. This means I won’t be watching any matches in the pub and spending £6.60 on my pint and a half per game (2 pints if I’m treating myself). The only problem with this strategy is the time I would have been in the pub will no doubt be swapped for family time which is likely to cost me more than £6.60.

Do I look like a roadie?

I stupidly wore a t-shirt with ‘crew’ on the back to a family friendly festival. At the end of the day, after all the bands had packed away, some children including my own were playing on the stage. I was hanging around at the back when one mum asked, “Are you waiting to take the stage away?” Do I look like a roadie?

Alternative birthday presents.

It’s coming up to my boy’s 3rd birthday and his family will generously want to buy him presents but what? He has plenty of toys and yet often seems to find more joy in playing ‘hide the potato’ but if we were to ask relatives to buy him a potato for his birthday they’d think we’d gone mad. Between the books he owns, the library and Dolly Parton who sends him a book every month, he’s fine on reading material.

Obviously I don’t want to stop people getting him something but was wondering if you and your family do some kind of alternative present giving.

Any suggestions will be considered.  You can contact me via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Cheers

How many times can you get chickenpox?

It’s my week off and I had thought I might get a few things done (let’s face it it wouldn’t be anything too significant) but then my boy caught chickenpox for the second time. This has meant no nursery and me on parenting duties. The hardest part is finding play areas where there are no other children and if children do come along I have to scarper which is not a good look.

Apparently it’s extremely rare to get chickenpox twice but before I think about my 6 weeks holiday, I’m just checking you can’t catch it for a third time.
