Making a living as a stay-at-home-dad

3d blue background with stock diagram

Staying home with our children can present some challenges, especially with regards to economy. Unless our partners are earning a good enough living to support us all, making ends meet can be tough. I have been doing some searching, and after making my way through all of the scams available at a special price, if you hurry, I found currency trading. In this post I will explain what it is and provide some tips to […]

Staying Healthy All Winter with Type 2 Diabetes Prevention

staying-healthy-all-winter-with-type-2-diabetes-prevention

While eating healthy foods and staying active may seem easy to keep up with during the warmer seasons of the year, making choices to help prevent Type 2 Diabetes is important to follow all year-round. My family became aware of this when my young cousin was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes this past November, which is American Diabetes Month. Of course, we joined forces with thousands to raise awareness that month, but we are […]

Jr. goes to Berlin

Jr. goes to Berlin - Zionskirchplatz

With five days off over Easter, we decided to go somewhere close on holiday. We considered many places and decided upon Berlin, which turned out to be a superb idea. Here are a few thoughts regarding our visit to Berlin. These days, you can fly to most European capitals for a very limited amount of money and in a matter of hours. We booked a flat via airbnb in an area called Prenzlauer Berg in […]

We recently visited some friends and family in London over new years, and took a ride on the London Eye, the best view in town. It was my second time and Jr’s first, what an amazing view.

Where Children Sleep

Where Children Sleep

If I got a grain of sand each time my son pleaded with me to buy him something, I’d have my very own beach. Recently, we bought a book that my son immediately took interest in, one he has already flipped though multiple times, and one that provokes some very interesting questions. Recently, we bought the book entitled Where Children Sleep, written by photographer James Mollison, it looked amazing. After we received it and opened […]

Christmas market in Christiania

Looking for something to do during the month of December? I bet you have plenty to do but if you have a couple of spare hours, take your small people to Christiania in Copenhagen and visit the Christmas market. I remember celebrating Christmas, when I was little, on my granddad’s farm in Oxford, it was magical. The entire family would gather at my grandparent’s farmhouse, 14 children roughly 14 adults, it was spot on. Christmas […]

The kids want Jazz

Me and Lee Pearson

When I ask my four-year-old son, hey Mars, what do you want to listen to? He will almost always answer with a single beautiful word, Jazz! Each time I think to myself, wow, that’s precisely what I would have chosen. Indoctrination? Perhaps, but what a great one! Mind you, he doesn’t always want to hear Jazz, sometimes he chooses to listen to the cowboy. Which cowboy I ask, Johnny Cash he responds. A good friend asked if […]

iPhone App, dad2be

iPhone app, dad2be

Consider the dad2be app as a confident assistant by your side, leading the way to becoming a dad, a survival guide for the dad in need, the dad who enjoys a humorous antidote to keep him smiling, as he finds himself on the bumpy path to daddyhood. What I like the most about this app is that it is very straightforward. As you can see in the screen dumps below, the topics are categorised to […]
