My name is Lee and that little troublemaker you see there is Ava.

We’ve got this sort of tag-team thing going on here. A sort of good cop, bad cop, little and large, slim and not-so-slim… tall and… well, you get it…

I’ve been journaling our journey through this new world of ours over on Instagram and have been making a point of keeping it as real as I can. Yes, there may be a little photoshop wizardry on a few photos but that sick you’ll see – that’s real. Very real and so is me getting pulled apart daily by an ever increasingly active tornado of a toddler.

You’ll read about me not having a clue, asking endless questions and quite quickly realising that there are some things those books and YouTube videos just don’t tell you…

So that’s where I come in and that’s where this post comes in. Yes, it’s only 10 but at least it’s a head start. I’m currently working on the other 934, 454, 210 things you’ll need to know – but I’ll save that for a future article!

When my kids were little, I was constantly finding stickers on my shoes, back of my pants, etc. This discovery usually took place once I got to work.

Or an object of envy. Looks like a pretty cool dad to me.

Ahh, the 'joys' of parenthood. My dad used to say that not everybody makes a child because they want them; some makes them because they NEED them (to take care of them when they're old).

It's not being a Dad that makes you look uncool.
