Daddy vs Chips XI Though the twins are not yet two, the ‘terrible twos’, it appears, are upon us. Though the tears and tantrums started some time ago, over the last two weeks I have been introduced to a new terror: The Tantrum In Public.
Daddy vs Chips X. Today, Da-Da-Da attended his first dance class. This was something he never wanted to do, but was forced into by the terrible twosomes drunken pirouetting to everything from Nicki Minaj to In The Night Garden.

After his last outdoors failure, Ma-ma had bought the twins some super-sized chalks to prevent mess. Having buttoned Cillian in his stylish gilet and zipped up Saoirse’s spotty fleece, the… Continue reading Fun in the Autumn Sun
