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.

I was looking through some notes from 2013 and one of the things I felt back then was that I didn’t have enough time to do the things I wanted to do. This was 3 years before becoming a dad, so if I didn’t have time then I certainly don’t now, which begs the question, does anyone feel they have time to spare?

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

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.

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?

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

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.

The other day my boy was singing a song we didn’t recognise. It turned out it was a track by Drake. Is Drake now part of the nursery curriculum?

In an attempt to get better quality sleep (I can get to sleep quite easily but I wake a few hours later) I’ve decided to increase the time between using a screen (computer/phone) and me going to bed.
One problem with this is the only time I have to do my own thing is after my boy goes to bed and I go to bed, a time that is getting shorter & shorter. It’s also a time that is also filled with eating dinner, loading the dishwasher and making lunch/ironing clothes for work.
Having said that, the work I currently do in this time has never led to anything so maybe it won’t be too much of a sacrifice.
Feel free to let me know the amount of time you leave between last using a screen and going to bed. Cheers.

I’m not a big fan of weighing myself (I don’t think it’s a good indicator of health) but the other day my boy wanted me to get on the scales and like most things with him it’s easier to do what he wants than not. (good parenting)
Once on the scales I realised I’m probably the lightest I’ve ever been as an adult. This made me wonder if I am ill.
My weight loss could of course be down to me not drinking much lager these days or the fact I go to bed just after 10pm so rarely have supper.
I had previously presumed my general level of lethargy was down to me being tired, something that could be rectified by a few good nights of sleep (easier said than done). Now I’m not so sure.
With this in mind, am I ill or just tired & underweight?
