Daddies Up All Nite

August 13, 2012


Thanks to the support of the staff at work – many of whom I have never even met – I have finally embarked on my new parenting/Daddy project via another blog. The idea of Daddies Up All Nite kind of came about almost a year ago when I realised I could just focus on Daddy-style […]

Because Red Looks Cool On Me…

August 4, 2012


Levi has a fascination with glasses. My glasses. I’ve worn glasses for almost 24 years of my life and have easily gone through 10-15 pairs in my lifetime. That’s not counting the sunnies I have paraded in my walk-in robe, and also a couple in Thumper. Levi has slowly learnt Daddy wears them most parts […]

Spinning Around & Around & Eating A Belt…

July 7, 2012


Kids do the funniest things. They really do. Here’s an old video of Levi at nineteen months of age in October 2011.

“The Bear Was Looking For His Honey When…OH LEVI…..”

July 6, 2012


Levi still enjoys 300mls of milk every night before he gets tucked into bed. Unfortunately the milk may not agree with his dinner and tonight was one of those nights. Everything came right out while we were reading to him. I remembered watching my son turn purple a second before he chucked. Oh the joys […]

Aquila Style: Boys & Their Toys (Week 5)

June 18, 2012


“The nappy box becomes a thrilling concert experience. What used to house a brand new vacuum cleaner is now where Levi plays peekaboo and hide-and-seek with us. A microwave box is converted into a fine-dining extravaganza at a prime restaurant.” Hello and thanks for returning to The Marching Jester. The June issue of Aquila Style […]

Aquila Style: Colour My World (Week 4)

June 5, 2012


By this point, Levi is shrieking with urgent delight, sensing the imminent adventure. He has waited an entire night in anticipation of this very colourful occasion. Morning Melbourne, have you all been well? In this week’s column Levi’s fondness for colours and crayons results in daily messy pre and post-meal affairs. Regardless, he’s happy and […]

Thank You Uncle Ken & Aunty June! (video)

May 30, 2012


My brother Ken and his missus June sent Levi a fire truck for his second birthday. An excellent choice too, as Michele and I were thinking of ‘upgrading’ his cars at home. It arrived almost two weeks late. Not a good day at the office, Australia Post! Ken and June, just wanted to thank you […]

Aquila Style: Confessions Of A Vegetarian Toddler (Week 3)

May 29, 2012


Once he’s satisfied he has cleaned out the meat, he actively pursues the rest of his meal with the two-handed gusto one would associate with eating fried chicken wings. Morning all, what’s everyone having for breakfast today? I’ve got my usual steaming cup of mocha and a small bowl of cereal. Not much of a […]

A Brief Recap – December 2011

May 25, 2012


Evening Melbourne. It’s the coldest May in 12 years and suffice to say I’m all rugged up with the heater cranked up. Michele and I have just put Levi to bed. The cheeky fellow only had 30 minutes of sleep this afternoon so he was an absolute wreck by dinner time. I thought I’ll play […]

Aquila Style: Precious Moments (Week 2)

May 24, 2012


Almost immediately a wave of regret and shame came crashing down on me. My little boy had accomplished something great and immediately he thought to show his parents. Evening Melbourne, I hope everyone’s at home with their families tonight. Warm dinner, good company, heater on with the prospect of a few hours of quiet relaxation […]
