🛀 From Chaos to Calm + A Special Surprise Inside! 🎁


"Are you alright in there, buddy?" I asked my 3-year-old son.

Despite being in the middle of one of the sickest weeks of his life... 🤮

He was having the time of his life...

In the bath! 🛀

My wife was busy, straining through flu-like symptoms while she put our youngest to sleep after he had taken himself off to bed at 4pm! 😴

In our home, the past week has been less about routines and more about coping with fevers, conjunctivitis and endless sniffles. 🤒🤧

Amidst this whirlwind, there have been moments that have felt like calm amongst the storm. 🕊

As I navigated through a landscape littered with toys and dishes...

Battling a headache and nausea myself... 🤢

I stumbled upon a scene that encapsulated pure joy. 😲

My eldest, in the bath, was lost in an imaginative world of his own...

Deeply engaged with his colourful companions...

The "Lil Wetties". 🙌

Lil Wettie - Whale Bath Toy

These weren't just any bath toys!

They had become his treasured sea creatures, leading him on an epic underwater adventure in search of a lost friend. 🐳

His focus was intense.

A brief "yep" in response to my check-in, and he was back, diving into his narrative with unwavering enthusiasm. 

These Lil Wetties...

("little" in size and made from wetsuit material)

have now been part of our lives for a lil over a month (pun intended)... 😏


Have never failed to mesmerize! 👀

Night after night, they continue to be the highlight of bath time...

Igniting creativity and stories! 🐢

But they do more than entertain...

They have consistently brought a sense of peace and calm to our chaotic week of sickness... 😌

(still currently in progress mind you 😅) 

Giving us moments to catch our breath and tend to the house...

All while the kids (when they don't head to bed early) are happily occupied! 👏

Our personal experience with the Lil Wetties has been nothing short of magical.

They're quick to dry, mould-resistant, compact, vibrant, and incredibly fun! 

A testament to the creativity and quality of a wonderful Australian business. 👌

(Yep, they're made here too! 🦘)

Dad Jokes of the Week

I took the shell off my racing snail thinking it would make him go faster.

But instead, he's now more sluggish.


Working out is like a drug to me.
I don't do drugs.


I just said "no comment" all the way through the police interview.
I didn't get the job


Dadventure Ideas for this Week

  • Try Aqua Golf 🏌️‍♂️ (A swing and a... splash! Aqua golf is a swing at tradition where the water hazard is the whole point and laughter is par for the course.)

  • Tree Climbing and Picnic at the Park 🌲 (Scale new heights together by climbing a sturdy tree, then relax with a picnic spread under its shade. You could even build a rope swing together! It's the simple pleasures that count.)

Date Night Ideas for this Week

Get back into dating your husband/wife/partner again! No babysitter? No excuse! There is so much fun to be had having date nights at home!

Staying In Date Night Idea:
  • Lion or Beaver 🦁 (Take a personality test together. There are loads to choose from online including animal based tests, letter and number based tests (Myer & Briggs and the Enneagram) and even tests to find your preferred love styles. You might be surprised by each other's results... and your own!)

Going Out Date Night Idea:

  • Road Trip 🛣 (Make a playlist together, grab some car snacks (or go through a takeaway drive-through) and just drive together. Driving can be so peaceful without kids yelling in the back seat. 😉)
