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.
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!
Well that’s breakfast done…
Second post: The kids fed the dog Escargot… Gourmet and thrifty. These kids are smart thinkers.
Drinks before bed… no worries
Dinner is served… Eat up kids
In case you missed it… That’s two chocolate muffins, ANZAC buscuits (or cookies for our American readers), marshmallows and green and yellow M&Ms.
Second post: The kids left Nan Nan a little surprise gift in her bed.
A double black espresso should warm the kids up before bed.
Wow… who knew Slurpees were so much cheaper than water. #bargain #winning
Ponytails sorted the easy way…
Ssssslithering sssssnakes should help the kids sssssssleeep sssssssoundly.
No toothpaste? No worries… just use Nutella kids… and don’t forget to rinse with coke. We Can’t have any Nutella left on your teeth before bed
The best thing about a sugar coma is the peace and quiet. #winning
So my wife finally comes home from her trip and this is how she responds…
Family detox #MumIsHome #FunPolice #Vitamins #PartyTimeOver #StopEncouragingTheMan #AllABitOfFun
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.
