Open up Bucky's trophy cabinet to learn what Bucky does as a dad and how he does it. You may find the odd sport-related rant as well...he tends to do that.
It's one of those moments that you remember forever, when you tell your family and friends that you're expecting a baby. I still remember the warm and genuine embraces I received from my mum, dad and sister. I recall visiting friends with the sole purpose of breaking our news and thinking to myself 'they know exactly why we're here'...and of course, they acted surprised even though they weren't. Recently one of my dear friends and his partner broke the news that they are expecting their first baby and I can't tell you how happy Quigs and I are to hear the news. There's so much we want to tell them but I don't want to bore them shitless with war stories about my experiences as a father. Instead I decided to write my great mate a letter, one that he can refer back to when the time is right, and you never know, perhaps he'll write me a letter in twenty years time saying 'you were right'...actually, he's more likely to write a letter in twenty years time telling me how I could done the job better myself. But that would be OK, that's how he is and we love him for it.
Welcome to Chubba's Pool Room, where you will not only find a a dodgy dart board, but many great insights on being a dad. Just don't hit the back of the billiard queue on the wall will ya, his missus hates that.
What is the worst job as a parent, its obvious isn’t it. It’s looking after a sick baby/toddler. Apart from the abundance of spew and poo, your heart melts as your child transforms from an energetic (and sometimes over-excitable) little person to a miserable cranky sad version.
Now and then one of our talented TackleNappy friends writes an article for us. If you have something to say and would like to say it via TackleNappy please contact Chubba or Bucky. We just ask that you don't use TackleNappy as a vehicle for political, religious or offensive content. Over to you...
