Gastro got us…💩 + IT’S HERE! 🙌 Making Mum’s Day Diary release date:

Making Mum's Day Diary by Dad Certified plus FujiFilm Intax Mini Camera

It’s Larissa here this week. 👋 Jeremy’s Friday emails are usually his pride and joy – he puts a LOT of effort into them each week so they are fun and valuable for you, terrible dad jokes and all. 😆🤦‍♀️

So why am I here this week writing to you all?


Gastro got Jeremy and the boys good.😳💩

It was a wild 48hrs! I remember someone telling us when we became minimalists that we shouldn’t donate our spare towels because one day gastro would hit our family and we’d need every single one… well they were right! 😅

But, miracle of miracles, I somehow evaded it! 🤯 Which was a HUGE blessing because on Wednesday night I was up ALL night with the boys – I literally slept less than 3 hours in a 24 hour period. 😵


Thankfully everyone is feeling back to their happy selves today, albeit a little tired. 🤪 So I thought I’d give Jez a break and jump on here to chat to you all this week because…


The Making Mum’s Day Diary is releasing for pre-order: Thursday 13th April (shipping: Friday 21st April)!

😍Well, I gotta tell ya, there could not be a more perfect week to announce the launch of this…


Because I spent 3 days cleaning up my boys’ vomit (and, ahem, liquid from the other end😳) and, as if I didn’t believe in this product enough already, now I REALLY, REALLY BELIEVE IN IT!

I mean, Mums! WE ARE AMAZING! 🏆

I have never felt like more of a superhero than I did these past few days… caring for my family literally around the clock, soaking up every sick baby cuddle (the BEST part, right!?), scrubbing vomit out of sheets x1000… 🦸‍♀️

Mums are incredible! 👏 And I think every dad would agree. ❤

So why is this Making Mum’s Day Diary so special?

Ugh, SO many reasons!

  • It gives Mum a DAY OFF (yes, they are possible…) 🤩
  • It gives Dad an easy blueprint of how to spoil Mum on her special day. 👏
  • It helps Dad every step of the way so it’s not overwhelming for him. 😅
  • It gets the kids involved, making it fun and teaching them the lifelong skill of how to show appreciation to their Mum. 😍
  • It encourages Dad to TAKE PHOTOS OF MUM with the kids, so she’s not just always the one behind the camera. 📸
  • It has space for memorable moments and “Get to know Mum” questions and…
  • The much requested, much anticipated MUMVENTURE TIME! 🤩🙌 (including cutout Mumventure cards – both Staying In and Going Out!)


We will also be releasing the Instax Mini 12 📸(a brand new instant camera from FujiFilm!) along with the Making Mum’s Day Diary…

And there will be a bundle!😁 So you can get all set for Mum’s special day (Mother’s Day coming up in just over one month!) AND save money on the camera, so it will be cheaper for you than buying it individually elsewhere.🤗

Well friends…

This one is truly special.
Mums are truly special. ❤
Their love is selfless, kind and unconditional.

😍So let’s give Mum an INCREDIBLE, restful, fun, heartwarming day this year for Mother’s Day…

Because we all know she deserves it.🏆👑

Cheering you on!

Larissa (and Jeremy who is better but doesn't want to look at bolognese for at least a month😅).

Dad Jokes of the Week

I just swapped our bed for a trampoline.
My wife hit the roof.


What did the seal with a broken arm say to the shark?
"Do not consume if seal is broken."


Me: "Can you teach me to do the splits?"
Gym Instructor: "How flexible are you?"
Me: "I can't make Mondays or Thursdays."


Dadventure Ideas for this Week
  • Train Ride 🚆 (Great for all ages. Try catching the train to a new park near a nearby station and get some food out while you're there. Try to avoid the "Quiet Carriage" if you can. 😉)

  • Hot Air Ballooning ☁ (For the older kids. Expensive, but usually a once-in-a-lifetime experience and something they won't forget.)

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:
  • Cocktail Night 🍸 (Find some recipes and the ingredients you'll need and shake it up... or stir. Try something new! *Drink responsibly, you have to parent in the morning.)
Going Out Date Night Idea:
  • Couples Massage 💆‍♀️ (This might be a weekend date, but it will be well worth the babysitter! Enjoy unwinding together and get some TLC for those tight shoulders.)

Cheering you on!
