Daddy Uncool - 15th Nov 16

Just before Halloween, Blondie was “in the zone”, pretending to be a witch and threatening to turn me into various animals. You know, the usual stuff. At some point she decided I was a ghost, so I made a “wooo” noise at her. This...

Is there space in my heart for two?

Gregory Stanton - 21st Oct 16

Below is an unedited outpouring of my thoughts, and emotions, sure it jumps around a little and I may take an odd tangent or two but its real. Having spent an afternoon on the delivery suite at St. Georges thinking that our little man...

The decimation of never

Bradley Gerrard - 27th Oct 16

Before we had our daughter we really wondered what all the fuss was about where being in control and ‘doing the right thing’ was concerned. Yeah, we know it’s going to be difficult, we retorted to those striking a cautionary tone aimed at helping...

From Lad to Dad: A Story of Male Body Insecurity

Paul Webster - 12th Oct 16

I have never liked my body. There, I said it. I look at myself and I don’t see a trim body shape, that is well within a healthy BMI. Instead I see an untoned, pale and scrawny frame, with a few podgey bits due...

Do I Want to be A Hipster Dad?

David Coppi - 25th Aug 16

As a new dad, I desperately want to be cool in my daughter’s eyes. Sure, she’s only nine months old but there will come a time when she’ll work out what sort of dad I am. At the moment I’m the skinny jeans, faded...

Father Into The Future

Ian Watson - 7th Oct 16

I’m a relatively old dad. At 46, with a 22-month-old I’ve found myself in a weird situation. Most dads are a single generation away from their kids but technically I could have grand kids my son’s age. How will I relate to him and...

So…what’s it like being a dad?

Bradley Gerrard - 16th Sep 16

The benefit of knowing someone who has experience of something you’re about to go through is usually a fantastic thing. They can answer all your questions and reassure you it’ll be fine if you try to do this or avoid that. But a recent...

You’re exceptional but not the exception

Bradley Gerrard - 22nd Jul 16

It’s common to think everyone else around you with children is dealing with it all so much better. Why is it you imagine they must be coping with those multiple wake-ups with ease and grace compared to your bitchy altercations with one another at...

The 1st Haircut

Jack Lemon - 21st Jun 16

By all accounts my son has a fairly impressive head of hair. When wet it can reach as far as the middle of his back. But things were getting out of hand. I’m all for the ‘surfer’ dude look but the boy has to...

Is it A Boy or a Girl?

BonjourMini - 28th Jun 16

We decided that we would go with the surprise option on whether we would find out the gender of Mini or not. So here I pose the question, will it be a ‘Girl Mini’ or a ‘Boy Mini’ and the responses we get to...

All-too-absent Father

Steve Gray - 18th Jun 16

  19 is a great age to make a career choice!  You’re young, fearless and full of ambition!  But what happens later on, when you’re life and circumstances have changed?  When you’re no longer just looking-out for number 1?  How do we cope when we have...

A new world: A letter to my daughter

Bradley Gerrard - 24th Jun 16

I’ve woken up this morning to a country I don’t recognise, my love. One which has voted to leave the European Union in the belief it can be better outside. To say I’m disappointed is an understatement but an even more overwhelming emotion is...
