I need more sleep

Deor has been sleeping in our bed most nights for the last month or so. Maybe it’s been 6 months… It feels like it!  He’s now 26 months old and he is able to throw himself out of his cot and onto our bed where he will punch me repeatedly in the face and kick me…

I'm going to be a new Dad!

The wife and I are expecting the arrival of a new baby boy this Summer (2013). With this in mind, I thought I’d ask everyone I knew (and everyone I didn’t) what I should get in this video: The great thing about becoming a new parent is that I am joining a very large club…
