The parenting site for the rest of us…



Mistakes. Advice. Tantrums. True stories. Nursery rhymes. Whether you’re a tired new parent or a perplexed soon-to-be mum or dad, is here to help (or at least make you laugh).

This exciting new blog is put together by award-winning writer and dad-of-one, Stuart Hood. It’s based around the mistakes he’s made as a parent, the questions he’s Googled since becoming a father, the things he’s doing to try and bond with his son, and the songs he’s made up while trying to rock his baby to sleep, and is designed to help put a smile back on your face whenever you’re feeling low, knackered or clueless.

If you want to get in touch with Stuart, email or send him a message on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

When I think about bibs, I think about my son’s drool. This makes me think about his teething. This makes me think about sleep deprivation. And this makes me think about the time I was tortured by the SAS. True story. I’d love to tell you more, but if I did I would have to kill you. Not really. I’d just not be able to offer you the following deal. If you vote for me in the Fresh Voice category of the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging awards, I’ll publish my tale of, ahem, heroism in the face of brutality. Oooooooh. How exciting, especially since there’s a video I can embed and everything.
Well, what are you waiting for? Vote me and I’ll cough up the goods quicker than I – spoiler alert – asked the nice SAS men to stop hanging me from the ceiling.
