I’m going to take a slightly different approach to this month’s dad blogger round up. You see BritMums Live is almost upon us and each year a tiny percentage of attendees has X Y chromosomes. I thought I’d introduce you to the dads I know will be in attendance. Firstly though, why do dads go […]
About John AdamsJohn Adams is a married with two young daughters. He has been a stay at home dad for almost four years. John started blogging back in 2012 after being invited to one-too-many "mother and toddler groups." This inspired him to write about the issues he faced as a stay at home dad and the gender barriers men face as parents. John continues to write about lie as a stay at home dad. He also writes about every aspect of parenting; schooling, education, pregnancy and birth, childcare and so on. Over time he has broadened the focus of his blog so he now writes about family finances, photography and occasionally covers men's style and fashion. John was originally a journalist. He concedes, however, that was a long time ago.

First of all, an apology from me. I’m a little late in providing this month’s dad blogger round up. I am sure many of you will relate to the reasons why; the Easter holidays. With the beginning of the new school term and the youngest back in the routine of having afternoon naps, I have […]
For all bloggers, dads and otherwise, there has been one very significant and sad development over recent weeks. This is the passing away of Oren Miller. Oren was a US-based stay at home dad and wrote Thebloggerfather. He was also the man behind the Dad Bloggers Facebook page, not only somewhere to showcase blog posts […]
I’ve just published my first ever book. It’s called A modern father (…and dad blogger) and it focuses on my life as a stay at home dad. As the title suggests, however, I couldn’t resist writing just a little about being a dad blogger. Getting the book into print has taken over my life and […]
It’s a new year, but I’m going to kick off this dad blogger round up with an old favourite; Frozen. I don’t know about you, but I am staggered by the runaway success of this Disney blockbuster. Even so, it is easy to understand why it has proved so popular. My kids both love it, […]
This month’s dad blog round up is not what I planned. I was going to trawl the Internet for blog posts all about Christmas. To my surprise, I struggled to find any. For whatever reason, us dad bloggers just don’t seem to be in the Christmas spirit yet! In the absence of Christmas-themed blogs, here […]
Just the other day I attended an event at the London HQ of professional services giant Deloitte. The event had seen my appearance on the BritMums Hangout with Jo Swinson on shared parental leave, and had arranged to discuss family friendly work practices and what employers could do to be more flexible so staff […]
Us dad bloggers can be a reflective bunch. Over the past few weeks I’ve seen quite a few blog posts from dads pondering deeply on various things they have done or experienced. The time of year lends itself to reflection. With all the Remembrance Day commemorations I’ve spent a lot of time explaining the complexities […]
What do you get if you take a psychotherapist, two stay at home dads, one of whom likes to write about feminism and a dad that has a thing for laundry bleach? You get the dad bloggers that feature in this month’s round up, that’s what. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s a real autumnal mix. […]
Go on, admit it; you loved spending time with the kids over the summer holidays. It was, nonetheless, time for them to go back to school wasn’t it? I know I’m not the only one to feel this way. I’ve seen loads of blog posts from mums and dads who are either relaxing or spring […]
This blogging thing has taken me to some weird and wonderful places over the last couple of years. The most unexpected, however, would be the back of a Hackney carriage in Central Paris. This is where I spent last Tuesday, a guest of the French men’s fashion retailer Celio*. I was there for two reasons: […]
Looking around at what the dad bloggers have been writing, it’s quite clear most have been enjoying the summer. There are loads of posts about holidays and days out. This one from Tim at Slouching Towards Thatcham caught my eye. It’s his top tips for visiting LegoLand Windsor and, having been last summer with my […]
Hello and welcome to my first-ever BritMums dad blogger round-up. I’ve been given the daunting task of taking over from the amazing Spencer, who has moved on to other things (I’ll come on to what Spen’s doing shortly). It’s been quite a month for us dad bloggers. Four of the better known chaps, working collectively […]
The other day a mum asked me if I was a single parent. Having seen me at the school gates twice a day, this was the conclusion she’d apparently come to. I couldn’t help feeling the question was a bit on the blunt side, especially as I wear a wedding ring which, I would argue, […]
A few months ago I wrote a blog post saying I was going to do my best to stop feeling so guilty as a parent. I’ve tried my best, but it hasn’t really worked out. Things came to a head just before the Easter break. It was a Friday, the one day of the week […]
This is a happy blog post. No, actually, it’s a very happy blog post about active children. Why so happy? Well, it’s simple really. After the deluge of the past few months I am overjoyed to be getting outside with the kids. I insist on spending as much time as possible outdoors with the […]
We recently had a health scare with Elizabeth, our youngest daughter. I’d received a phone call from her nursery to be told she was presenting some very worrying symptoms. The staff thought it could be very serious indeed but a fraught dash to our GP for an emergency appointment proved it was, thankfully, a false […]
There’s a question I’m often asked by mums when they discover I’m the main carer for our two daughters. The words vary slightly, but it goes something like this; “Is it hard looking after two children compared to having a full time job?” I’ve been asked this question many times and yet I still […]
