Kids are great. Except when they’re not. Sometimes, children can just be angry little creatures of fury. Sometimes kids can be lovely. Other times, they just snarl, and make you wonder why is your child angry.
If you ever wonder why your child is angry, this may be the thing for you.
Simply spin the wheel below, and the mystery of your child’s anger will be resolved!
Or they could just be tired.
Are there any you would add to the above?
Obviously there may be other reasons, and if you’re worried, Sofa would suggest to seek advice from a trained professional – not a spinning wheel.
As my Gran had her 100th Birthday celebrations over the last weekend, we decided to make a thing of it, risk the small one in a hotel room, and actually have a break away together.
It, was, awesome.
The small one loved exploring the new surroundings, she slept (woo), I also got to take the small one around places I explored around about her age.
The picture above, is of St Mawes in Cornwall. A gorgeous little village south of Truro.
If I’m an organised little blogger, there may be a proper post about what to find in Cornwall, coming soon.
The other week, I came across an offer to pick up some VR glasses. Now while they were only the cardboard glasses you can get, they are still… kinda cool. They still show you a little bit of what VR can do.
After trying them out, Mrs Sofa and I chatted about how VR could be used, and if VR could be used to help train new parents in… well parenting*.
Here’s our ideas for VR games that could be used to train new parents.
- Nappy Change: How quick can you change a nappy? Multiple goes unlock bigger and messier poo’s.
- 300 Metre Challenge. Experience the blind terror of carrying a small child to the nearest toilet – before time runs out.
- Child Chase. You find yourself in a supermarket. Your child has just ran around the corner. The game is to find a route to your kid before untold destruction is unleashed on the shop… and you have to pay.
- Sleep Deprivation Quiz. Live the life of a tired dad on a night shift at work. Can you tell the difference between sleep deprived related hallucinations, and real life?
- Toy Hunt. You find yourself in a large open world layout of a local town centre. Somewhere in one of the shops is your child’s favourite toy. Find said toy, before the time runs out!
- Night Feeds. Can you put the current amount of mixture into your babies bottle? Was it four spoonfuls? Was it three? Do you remember? Are you still asleep? Are you still hallucinating??
- Supermarket Race. Can you race around a supermarket, before your child runs off / throws self on floor / steals sweets / hides in the freezer…
- The Zip Wire. Join in your child’s zip wire fun at the park! Don’t fall off!!
- Chocolate Challenge: Can you open the packet of chocolate without your child hearing? (Spoiler. You will never be able to – You CAN NOT BEAT THIS GAME!!!!)
- Tidy Up Hell: This game places you in a room with shelves against the wall, and stuff on the floor. Each time you turn around to deal with the other shelf, you realise that what you have just picked up – is back on the floor.
See how long you can last repeating this before you scream and rage quit.
Have you got any ideas, that you would add?
*Or at least be a tool in putting people off having kids yet.
Are you a fan of the Go Jetters theme tune?
Fan of Heavy Metal?
Well, “Slay Duggee” have taken a go at the Go Jetters theme tune…
After refusing to let him into the house, I was asked by the Little One to go out with her into the back garden to say hello to this chap.
As I looked at him, he look up at me and meowed. Almost to ask, “Why don’t you let me in?”
Looking for a last minute Father’s day present?
Are you too focused on being a dad / mum, that you’ve forgotten that you have your own parental figure?
Dont have time to pop to the shops?
Try printing this voucher – and giving it your dearest father figure!*
*Obviously please don’t blame me if he turns around and asks where his socks / chocolates / alcohol has got to.
There are some places that, while pretty, probably aren’t great for. At least.
Not without the right amount of Hayfever meds.
This was taken minutes before by nose erupted, I wouldn’t stop sneezing, and my eyes… were almost begging to be scratched out…
Anyway. A quick trip to the chemists later, I know have Piriton to try out.
Stopping for a moment to enjoy the stillness over The River Exe, just before running after the small one on her bike.
Sorry to anyone who we almost ran over! The small one is still learning to steer…
The view when you find yourself off the normal path.

The Kick Song from Hey Duggee.
Just in time for The World Cup
May possibly sound like another song.
