This woman drags me out of shell. She makes me a better version of myself and is probably the only reason I have any adult friends that aren't my family. The collective hive mind that is the 'local mums' have not only driven us reclusive dads to talk to eachother beyond comments about the weather but also brought us together as a community and I'm eternally grateful they made it happen. This evening we held our first Christmas drinks party with friends and neighbours and it wouldn't have taken place without them, So here's to the mums – The one that organise the social calendar. The ones that put themselves out there and the ones that make the effort. To the mums that schedule play dates, that make picnic suppers and that do the stocking fillers without being asked. To the mums that pay attention to the detail and that make Christmas magical not only for the kids, but for everyone around them. You've thrawed this Scrooge's heart and actually made me feel festive! .#shecompletesme #tothemums #socialnetworkers #festivepissup #wherearethekids #fatherofdaughters #dadlife #hohoho #instadad #fod

With the chaos of Christmas day behind us and the 26th spent in a cheese coma, we find ourselves nestled in the festive gooch – that lull between Christmas and New year's. Its also now known as the official day that parents watch their off spring try and master their newly acquired modes of transport with all grace and coordination of a clumsy 3 legged giraffe thats suffers from an inner ear infection that effects balance and a severe hangover. While out today, literally thousands of small people where on bikes, hoover boards, roller skates, scooters and skateboards, swarming in all directions, closely followed by parents shouting a combination of "look where you're going, keep your head up, bend your knees, you're pedalling the wrong way, it's only a bump, concerntrate, no were not going home yet, and use your brakes!" Then of course we have the pleasure of carrying both them and said mode of transport home when they're cold. Happy 27th everyone. Hope you haven't run out of plasters. #useyourbrakes #keeptrying #imcoldgetmeoutofhere #cheesecoma #dadlife #instadad #fatherofdaughters #fod

T'was the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring…..apart from the 4 hyped up children who have main lined festive spirit intravenously & are massively over excited at the prospect of a large guy dressed in red, breaking into our home and leaving presents in their bedroom. Father Christmas is getting advocaat this year as daddy forgot to buy sherry and now I'm banished to the "wrapping room" for the next 2 hours to pay for my sins as once again, I've last everything to the last minute. Good luck everyone, merry Christmas and here's to hoping you don't see your children eye balling you from the foot of your bed at 3.38am shouting "he came, he came!!!

AD: For any parent, filling the time in the steep run up to Christmas day can be challenging, so to get my eldest girls out of the house, to keep them occupied and to stop them ransacking the place while not-so-discretely looking for an early glimpse of their presents, we headed off to London yesterday to take in a show. But I’m not talking about the traditional ‘he’s behind you’ and pie throwing pantomime , oh no. Instead, we immersed ourselves in 2.5 hours of escapism at the @SchoolofRockUK and got to enjoy spending some time together without the small people who drain most of my attention. Ok, I managed to embarrass my eldest with a picture outside of me playing air guitar, I didn’t get a look in when it came to sharing the intermission snacks and I had Marnie welded to my lap for the entire second half of the show but it was totally worth the journey – the kids on stage were incredible and the girls even stopped being teenagers in training for a while & got swept up in the magic of it all & clapped along to the music at one point, which is my book is a win! If you’ve seen it, what did you think & if you haven’t, why not?! #AD #Imintheband #SchoolOfRockUk #airguitarforthewin #mygirls #daddydaughtertime #fatherofdaughters #dadlife #instadad #fod

I don't know exactly where @mother_of_daughters is or who she's with, but I do know she deserves a break, so with her out of the picture of the weekend, I find myself spread a bit thin. With human cloning a while off, I've still not mastered the art of being in 3 different places at once, therefore I'm relying on the older girls to help, yet despite best intentions, sometimes their 'help' isn't exactly what you'd hoped for. I asked Marnie to get the twins into bed while I made milk & when I returned 2 minutes later, I found them curled up my bed watching octanaunts. Not quite what I meant, but you take what you're given in these situations. Any examples out there of the kind of 'help' you getting from the small people in your lives that actually results in more work for you? #whenkidshelp #thanksforthehelp #lefttoourowndevices #meandmygirls #fatherofdaughters #dadlife #instadad #fod

Is it just me or does doing an internet search for Halloween costumes just result in pictures of slightly slutty witches, cats, zombies & dead cheerleaders (that wouldn't look out of place in a bondage catelogue), a sweaty brow & a hastily deleted search history? At least the simple task of picking pumpkins hasn't been sexualised yet. But it does provide its own challenges, namely 1). steering @mother_of_daughters away from what we dubbed the 'Instagram section' – the aesthetically pleasing small white, grey & speckled pumpkins that cost more than a nice lunch out (which I failed at dismally, see stories ), 2). Applauding the girls 'excellent' selection of squashed, mouldy pumpkins they dragged across a field, knowing full well they won't make the final cut & will be quietly dumped before we pay, and 3). Spending £35 on hotdogs only for them to eat a bite before announcing they 'don't like the favour' leaving me to costume a families worth of pork based goodness washed down with cold chips & wobble back to the car. Ok, that was an upside & look at their faces, you can't put a price on making your family happy. #deletedsearchhistory #halloweenissosexy #instagrampumpkins #mygirls #hangingintheboot #fatherofdaughters #dadlife #instadad #dadlife #fod

After having my half term parenting skills not so subtly called into question by Netflix who kept consendingly asking "Are you still watching Paw Patrol?" and exhausted all creative Duplo & science experiment based wet day entertainment (see stories) , it became apparent by 4pm that we should leave the wake of destruction behind the front door & leave the house. Rather pleased that I consciously avoided the stereotype of dad's dressing their kids in no more T shirts & warm thoughts all year round, I made the fatal error of putting them all on wheels, inadvertently creating my very own (rather intimidating) 'girls only' version of the Hells Angels. Our cruise through the park caused OAPs driving off into bushes, large dogs testicles retract & families unfortunate enough to be walking in the opposite direction to us to part like the red sea on speed as my yells of "Use the breaks, not your shoes – mummy will kill me!" Were ignored by my offspring, echoed around the park & dissipated into the autumnal breeze, before turning around an hour later, we 3 scooters over my shoulders. Oh I do so love half term. #comingthrough #webringthenoise #scooterhellsangelscrew #halfterm #mygirlgang #solofortheday #fatherofdaughters #dadlife #instadad #fod

As a father of daughters & a family made up of 83% girls, I feel a big responsibility to make sure that all the women of varying sizes in my life grow up in a world where they are seen as equal and not objectified, so today after reading that sexual harassment in public is on the rise, my blood began to boil as the sad fact is that it's a proportion of my sex that's to blame. Call it locker room mentality or toxic masculinity or just call it being classless dicks – its certainly men that have to change. New legislation is all well & good but that only comes into effect after the act of harassment is committed. What we need is strong men to stand up & bring about a culture change and to not be afraid to say "that's not right" when they see or hear something that they know to be wrong, even when amongst friends. If they don't they are reinforcing that behaviour & are complicit in making life uncomfortable for another human being. Every woman is someone's daughter, sister, wife or mother and more importantly a person, so don't let tossers belittle them, threaten them or make them feel worth less than they are. Men – we have to be the change. #formydaughters #fodandproud #noplaceforharrassment #standupandspeakout #mygirls #fatherofdaughters #fod #dadlife #instadad

To V or not to V, that is the question. And the V I'm referring to that makes many men wince is of course Vasectomy. While watching Marnie hack away at a frankfurter this evening like a trainee butcher who'd misplaced their prescription glasses, I couldn't help but think about @mother_of_daughters post about contraception last night & how if our family is truly complete, then it's my turn to step up. But as I've written about in my book (see stories), my anatomy is battling my common sense. I know after 12 years of Clemmie being the one to take responsibility for contraception and putting up with a flow of hormones coursing around her body, that I need to just get it done, but what if after WWIII I'm called upon to repopulate the planet & am then held responsible for letting the human race die out when I can't complete the task. What if it's like chandler's nubbin and I loss my sense of humour. What if I feel less of a man? All stupid things I know, but this is what goes around in men's heads. So who out there has had it done? Us fellas need to talk about this more openly so I'd like to start a dialog here to normalise something that alot of men are scared of. #toVornottoV #vasectomy #fodforthesnip #traineebutcher #frankandbeans #timetotakeresponsibility #dadlife #fatherofdaughters #instadad #fodv

No, this is not a background extra milking their scene in some low budget B movie horror film. It's the moment when I was getting headshots taken for my book & Ottie decided she absolutely positively couldn't give me a moment to myself – transforming my moment, very much into her moment. Clemmie scooped her up seconds later & I can laugh at this now but it does remind me just how hard it can be to achieve the simplest of tasks when a wailing child is within close promixity – thanks @philippajames for catching the memory & exposing the realities behind the image you see in the book!
