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.
An Open Letter To A New Dad FeaturedTuesday, 14 May 2013 09:34 Published in Bucky's Trophy Cabinet Written by Bucky 2 comments
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.
We're already 8 months in with our newest family member Boo and not a day passes where I don't think up some stupid, far-fetched idea for a blog post relating to this beautiful little girl and the experiences we've shared together. Here's a bunch of random thoughts I've had recently.
Today marks 10 years to the day since I married the greatest women on the world. And she is just that, the world's greatest women.
Kids movies. They can be the ultimate baby sitter for an hour and a bit, but they can also be the ultimate torment for a parent who’s simply seen or heard a movie so frequently that you’re ready to turn the DVD into the ultimate frisbee, flingnig it across the back fence for the neighbours doberman to play with.

It's official, my kids are not only more attractive than I, they're a whole lot smarter....or is that a whole lot more cunning? Those who know me personally are undoubtedly thinking "No shit Sherlock" but not even they realize just how conniving my little chickadees can be.
