What do you get if you cross a love of Mancunian mega-band Oasis with a hatred of teaching your child letter sounds? Too slow, the answer is my latest parenting song: Teaching My Kid Phonics.Read more
Where to begin the explanation behind our Let It Go parody song? Oh, I know. My son has never been a sleeper, and when he started teething things got really, really bad. Pain relief medicine helped, but he refused to take it without a fight until I began singing the brand name of the children’s ibuprofen we were attempting to give him (Nurofen) to the tune of Let It Go.Read more
‘Tis the season to write a funny Christmas song. So that’s exactly what I’ve done. My latest parody number is called The 12 Days of Christmas – Toddler Style, and it’s designed to be sung to the tune of, yup, you guessed it, The 12 Days of Christmas. Well, don’t just sit there. Laugh, sing and share, or I’ll tell Santa to put you on his naughty list.

Which is a long-winded way of me saying, “I’ve written about going on a dads’ night out again.” This time in the form of a nursery rhyme that’s sung to the tune of A Tisket, A Tasket. Enjoy. Laugh. Share. You know the drill.

Oops, I did it again. I played with your heart, got lost in the game. No wait. That’s not what happened at all. In reality, I simply woke up this morning with another fantastic new nursery rhyme in my head. It’s about kids and phones, it’s designed to be sung to the tune of ‘This Old Man’ and it is printed above. Enjoy.
PAW Patrol? That’s so last month. This month, my entire life revolves around the Poo Patrol. What’s that? You’ve never heard of the Poo Patrol? To quote Michael Jackson, you are not alone. Most people haven’t the foggiest who this stoic band of pant-saving parents are. But this lack of exposure ends right here and Read more
