As a new dad, every day brings new unexpected parenting challenges that complicate your usual routine. From changing nappies in the most unusual of places to trying to find time to shower, eat or just get some essential dad downtime in the bathroom, parenting is by no means a simple job!
So when an old friend – the ace mummy vlogger Emma from Mamalina – convinced me to step out from behind the keyboard and move in front of the camera to record my first ever vlog, it got me thinking…
While all parents face the same daily challenges when it comes to life with a baby, who manages them better? Are mums born with more innate parenting skills or are dads today taking on more and upping their parenting game? If there was a prize for being the ultimate parent, who would win?! Mum or Dad?
And so, without further ado, I’m excited to share with you my first ever vlog, in which I challenged Mamalina to a series of everyday parenting tasks, to see who can do them fastest…mum vlogger or dad blogger? From speed nappy changing to one armed sandwich making, we cover it all…
But who will win? You’ll have to watch the video below to find out!
