“Dad, Dad, Dad!!!”

The excitement in Mal and Silas’ voices was next level.

I swiveled in my chair to face the boys, ripping my attention away from my computer screen.

“What is it, boys!?”

They had just arrived home and I
  could tell that wherever they had been
they’d had a BLAST!

“We picked oranges!

    And patted chickens!

      And saw a tractor!

        And had a picnic under the trees!

          And ATE oranges!




                    They were…


“Wow, That sounds like SO much fun!!” I said enthusiastically.

  genuinely had FOMO. 🥲

That’s weird...

Usually, it’s the other way around…

Larissa then bounced excitedly into the office (looking as gorgeous as ever), with a massive grin on her face.

“It was magical, we
had so much fun!”

Yep, serious FOMO… (post fomo?)

…Wait is this what the mums feel
  after we dads come back from a Dadventure?...

“We picked so many oranges,” she continued,

“and the branches were
  nice and low so the boys could even pick some!”

Silas, our 2 year old chimed in:

“I pulled this orange!” He yelled as he proudly presented a great big orange half the size of his head.

“It was weally, weally hard! I pulled so hard that I fell over on my bum! But..

“I did it!”

His eyes were bright with excitement as he thought back over the memory of his accomplishment.

“You did so good, Silas!” Larissa added encouragingly.
“And they even taught us how to
  cut the oranges correctly.”

“Huh? What!
  Who’s been keeping this from us!” I looked at her quizzically.

“Yeah, it’s true. We’ve been cutting oranges…

“The wrong way!”

A few minutes later we were eating oranges in the kitchen trying out the orange grower’s secret orange-slicing-hack.

And I can vouch for it!

But more on that later…

What I couldn’t get over was how excited they all were.

Not about the orange slices (although that was exciting), but about their:


Yes, family adventures are awesome.

Almost as awesome as Dadventures. 😉

But mum trying out something brand new, just her and the kids…

Like many, our family thrives on routine…

But, incorporating new
  experiences into our routine has been one of the BEST ways our family has found to create fun and memorable moments together.

The kind of memories the
  kids will truly remember and think back about for YEARS to come.

They’re memories that will help form the foundation of your relationship with your kids.

Think about it.

What fun memories of your
  parents do you have from when you were a kid?

I can guarantee that many come from when things were done different.

Still waiting on that secret orange-slicing-hack?

Simply cut your orange into wedges CROSSWAYS. Like, NOT end to end, but straight through the middle, so each hemisphere has its own navel / belly button thing… This way each wedge has multiple bite-sized segments that easily pull away from the skin for easy eating, less mess, and fewer strings stuck in your teeth! Give it a go and let us know what you think.
And if you’ve always been cutting oranges this way, hit reply and let me know! I’ve been eating half
-time orange wedges for years and I’ve never seen this before now!
