New Bath Routine – Shampoo!

July 29, 2012


Michele and I recently introduced a new addition to Levi’s daily bath routine. A Johnson & Johnson’s shampoo, no less. I’m aware I once discussed how ineffective Johnson & Johnson’s products are and owes it’s popularity due to it’s brilliant marketing. So far the shampoo has kept Levi’s head feeling nice and smooth and smelling […]

Doodles On The Wall

July 28, 2012


On one side of the kitchen wall is a colourful kaleidoscope of Levi’s art pieces. My mother-in-law Caroline has lovingly pinned them up to showcase Levi’s handiwork; most of them are artwork done on weekday afternoons when both Michele and I are away at work and Levi isn’t in creche. There are still many more […]

Goodbye Cotton Buds, It Has Been A Great Relationship.

July 26, 2012


This is a tub of humble, everyday cotton buds that sit in a nondescript see through plastic container. It resides in my bath drawer, which also houses my hair wax, aftershave and every essential manly bathroom gimmick. It’s also the same tub I’ve been refilling my cotton buds into and the same tub I’ve been […]

Happy (Belated) Birthday, Toby

July 24, 2012


Mr Bojangles – that’s his pet name – turns six this year. Michele and I have been slack and we actually forgot about it completely. As usual, it’s an annual cheeseburger treat. Three days too late! Levi is now old enough to understand the concept of birthdays and candles. Like all birthdays he’s been to, […]

Peanut’s Fortnightly Belly Show – Episode 5 (24 weeks pregnant)

July 23, 2012


Michele and I spend most parts of our evenings – after tucking Levi into bed – with our hands placed on Michele’s belly. Peanut has so far been far more active than Levi and the last fortnight has seen many ‘hi fives’ for Mummy and Daddy. Well, I’m guessing it’s Peanut’s hand. It could have […]

Walking To Mummy & Daddy & Standing & Crawling… (video)

July 22, 2012


Like all parents who have been capturing their children’s growth, development and magic moments on camera, Michele and I have amassed thousands of photos of Levi and several hundred video clips. Mr Moo isn’t even 30 months of age and he’s already a natural on the camera compared to his parents who have a combined […]


July 14, 2012


I spend a lot of my ‘free time’ at home staring at my laptop. So much so Levi has associated one end of the dining table as ‘Daddy Chair’. The Curious Mr Moo loves wandering over to me to check out what I’m doing. Most times I’m running multi-billion offshore operations and shipping my income […]
