The Spirit of Australia

The Spirit of Australia

I’ve been meaning to post this for a few days now, but I’ve learnt that travelling with a baby overseas makes blogging a tricky assignment. Thursday last week was a glorious day. It’s hard to complain when you have so many reasons to be happy. Thursdays for most of us (myself included) would normally mean slogging … Continue reading

Ergo Baby: the way forward

Ergo Baby: the way forward

Out with the old and in with the new. As mentioned in an earlier post (Mum’s Shopping Spree), we recently purchased a ERGO Baby Organic Baby Carrier based on reviews online and from word of mouth. The BabyBjorn was initially great and I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. The thing is though, our … Continue reading

Eggs, carrots and milestones

Eggs, carrots and milestones

In Australia, we’re currently enjoying our 4-day Easter long weekend :) It’s great! And as much as we’re not into dressing Jayden up, his aunty brought over a pairof Lindt bunny ears which were so small that no one else could wear them… except Jayden! I know traditionally the Easter Bunny brings yummy chocolate eggs… … Continue reading

My supernatural innate abilities (essentially my spider-sense and the like) have always kept me from making a fool out of myself (most of the time). Alas, my powers have disappeared. Like Samson, I cut my hair and … Continue reading

Bath time bubble bliss

Bath time bubble bliss

Mom’s shopping spree

Mom’s shopping spree

My dear wife came home the other day with a huge grin on her face and a rather large haul of shopping. She was proud of her purchases… and I was too. No it wasn’t groceries and to my amazement, it wasn’t the latest Zara clothes or a few new pairs of shoes :P It … Continue reading

Baby Passport Photo Hell

Baby Passport Photo Hell

A very busy week has just passed and the biggest highlight of my week was the decision to go overseas with my wife and Jayden for a close friend’s wedding. We were originally not going to travel because the thought of travelling with a newborn was an experience we were not totally enthusiastic about. We’ve … Continue reading

Debut Dad Exclusive: The Q&A Scoop!

Debut Dad Exclusive: The Q&A Scoop!

I think there are quite a few posts around in the blogosphere themed around answering a set of questions and posing a different set of questions to some of your blog’s followers, essentially paying it forward. I have to say that I like the concept and enjoy reading about the people behind the blogs and … Continue reading
