Back to school blues

Today is a big day in the Dating Dad household; it's back to school day. The day when I pack my children off with their shiny new lunchboxes and polished shoes to go back into school after the long summer break. Of course, this year it's been longer than most summers as it started way... Continue Reading →

Time to talk to the kids about racism

The US is on fire right now. Literally and metaphorically. The murder of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis shocked the nation to the point of action, with millions joining overwhelmingly peaceful protests across the country which have been used by their government to justify brutal responses from "law enforcement" officers. People are being... Continue Reading →

A bit of a break

Time for a midweek parenting tale to break the monotony of dating posts, with "break" being the operative word. I've led a fairly charmed life when it comes to serious injuries. Until I started playing Australian Rules Football in my twenties I'd never broken a single bone in my body. Even now, all I've done... Continue Reading →

Introducing my kids

I'd never done it before, and needed to find a way to process things without paying for a therapist. The title for it sort of popped into my head out of... Continue Reading →

Hurry up and meet her, Dad!

Recently I was lucky enough to go to New Orleans for work. We headed out there early, spent a few days doing tourist and culture stuff (ie drinking heavily) before doing a little work (and more drinking). Meant that I didn't see my kids for a little longer than normal, and so when I returned... Continue Reading →

You go from only being responsible for yourself to having another human life entirely and utterly dependant upon you.... Continue Reading →

Travelling with kids

I've recently returned from our first ever family holiday abroad. Back in the day we never had enough money to go away, but thanks to an extra commission payment I decided to go right ahead and do it. What's that? You think it was instead an excuse to blow my ex's trip to Butlins out... Continue Reading →

Step-off

Recently I found myself chatting with someone I'd met online. The number of kids I have came up as we chatted and flirted and talked about setting up a date, along with the fact that they're not sure they could take on that many and survive. This is not an uncommon issue - probably half... Continue Reading →
