Last Chance To Order For Mother's Day 2023! 🎁

Making Mum's Day Diary with dad and kids

When I was a kid, I remember waking up on Mother's Day and making my Mum a breakfast menu. I wasn't much of a chef, but I'm pretty sure I put pancakes on that menu (😅👨‍🍳), as well as easy things like toast and cereal.

When Mum woke up I excitedly took my menu in and said I'd make her anything she wanted. 😍

You know what she chose?

"Cornflakes and muesli, please Jeremy." I was shocked.😲

"But Mum, that's what you eat every day!"🤔 I protested. "Don't you want something different today? I'll make you anything!"

She smiled and thanked me, and still chose cornflakes and muesli.🥣

When I was 20, my Mum passed away. 💔 I still miss her every single day - I think I always will. And even more so now that I have two amazing boys of my own. I really wish she was here to walk this parenting journey with me. 💔

So as I reflect on what Larissa (my wife) and I are doing here at Dad Certified, I realise just how important it is -

We're all about family. 💓

Some people call us a diary company but we're not. We're all about building confidence, deepening family bonds, creating memories, and recording those memories. 👏

Needless to say, if my Dad had gotten something like a Making Mum's Day Diary when I was a kid, and I had filled it out with menus and drawings and adventures and photos with my Mum - well you can imagine how much I'd treasure that now. 🏆💓😊

So, although this is my business and this could easily be seen as 'salesy', I want you to genuinely know something -

I believe in this product.🙋‍♂️

I created the Making Mum's Day Diary because I think that mums are worth celebrating(!!)🎉, and I think that dads are doing an amazing job and could use a helping hand to lighten the load sometimes.🙋‍♂️💪

That's what it does. It makes unforgettable memories, easily. 👏🙌

We genuinely hope that the Making Mum's Day Diary blesses your family and changes your home for the better, just as our other diaries have already for countless families across Australia. ❤😍

Oh, and can you guess what I eat for breakfast every single day?

Cornflakes and muesli. Like mother, like son. 💓

Cheering you on 🙌

Dadventure Ideas for this Week
  • Car/Motorbike Show/Museum 🚗 (There's nothing like a classic car. Introduce your kids to what you used to ride around in as a kid and even show them what came before. A fun day out for all!)

  • Bus Ride 🚌 (It might sound boring to you, but this is actually really fun for kids who have never been on a bus before! Great for young kids and great in any weather (as long as you don't have to wait in the rain). It's not about the destination but having a fun destination, like a new park, and ice cream place or even the sops, makes it a lot of fun!)

Date Night Ideas for this Week

Keep the spark alive with some of our date night ideas this week 😍🔥 (Even without a babysitter!)

Staying In Date Night Idea:
  • Video Game Marathon 🎮 (Grab your favourite snacks and line up your favourite co-op, pvp or party video games. Set a timer so you don't get stuck on any one game for too long. If you don't own a console or PC, download some easy two-player games on your phone or tablet.)
Going Out Date Night Idea:
  • Glamour Night 👠 (Comfy clothes are great for parenting but take this chance to get dressed up nice and go out for cocktails or a fancy dinner. You’ll feel great!)
