Mario Kart Parenting

This is a follow-up to my last post about computer games and children, though this time I’m taking a slightly different look at things. Okay, a very different look at things. It seems every celebrity who has a kid these days espouses a particular philosophy of parenting – they say ‘this is the way you should do it, […]


Hide and Seek – A story of depression and dads

The man comes home from work, pulls the car into the garage and sits there for a moment. He doesn’t turn off the engine. The radio is a low hum he isn’t paying attention to. He never heard a single song on the drive home. Through the screen-door he sees his kids bouncing up and down […]

What music do you let your kids listen to?

Kids and Gaming

A wormhole wee-wee phenomenon?

The Wee-Wee from Nowhere Phenomenon

Phenomenon or unexplained mystery? I’ve heard of weird and unexplained incidents happening around kids but we’ve never experienced anything that I would categorise as beyond the norm. Until now. This morning during breakfast we had a very strange and creepy incident happen, that still has my head reeling. Checking and double-checking between Mumma and I to […]

Boo with Parcel

Treasures Nappies

“Beauty” I say, rubbing my hands together as I seal the deal for a sponsored post that comes with free nappies and a couple of bucks. The intelligent people at Treasures chose me, yes me, to try out their moisture moppers, to road test their kaka catchers, to rate their rear-waste disposal support units.

I Awoke in a Daze – Two Sentence Horrors
