In November 2016 my wife went overseas for a few weeks. While she was away I had some fun with our two kids on Facebook and hence #bachelordad was born.

Day One: 

Bachelor Dad for next two weeks… Whats for breakfast kids? M&Ms with chocolate topping… cereal done, Coke… and a heathy serve of cheezels to make sure we have dairy requirements covered. I don’t know what all those mums are complaining about… this parenting thing is easy as!

Day Two: 

Well that’s breakfast done…

So my wife finally comes home from her trip and this is how she responds…

Of course my wife knows me well… she also came back with goodies…

Hmmm… I don’t remember detox involving chocolate.  #wivesarethebest #mmmmpreztels

But of course the fun didn’t stop there…

The kids have got some work ahead of them once they get home. Let the fun begin #familytradition #bachelordad lives on

And the Grand Finale… 

Our youngest blabbed a day early… So we had to open my wife’s Christmas present tonight… My wife is now the proud owner of the very first 2017 #bachelordad calendar

In case you’re wondering… yes we are still happily married and my kids still have all their teeth.

Stay tuned – there’s more #bachelordad inspiration for Dads all over the world coming soon.
