Its Monday, which means its the start of a new week. It also means I am a day late with my weekly wrap up.
and while I could give you any number of excuses why I am running late this week, I’ve said from the start I would be honest with you and I simply don’t know why.
The Down Under household had a fairly busy week last week which partly attributed to the missed timeline, but also my thoughts have been thinking outside of just daily posts to keep you updated and trying to think about the bigger picture, big things are coming.
But enough excuses, here it is, the week (and 1 day) that was.
Last weeks Top 10 was all about Twitter (way to many T’s I know), and the hilarious Dad’s that use it to share their real lives with the world. I say real lives as Twitter is where the truth comes out.
Just check out some of these Dad’s and you will know what I’m talking about.
Yes, my single friend with 0 children, I’m sure zip lining in Vegas is most exhilarating, but…
Have you ever had to speed wipe your butt because you just heard a loud crash in another room followed by your 5yo screaming for help and your twin toddlers crying hysterically?

Tuesday the whole family was overtired, thanks a lot Toddler Sleep Regressions
Wednesday started off as usual with our weekly Swimming Lessons and ended up with a hostage situation that lasted a horrific 15 minutes.
Friday’s first stop was the tax man, a boring affair by all accounts, but a well behaved toddler meant it was followed up by a fancy breakfast.
You can read all about it here The Week So Far. . .
If you actually read it you would also know that Mr and Mrs Down Under also had their first child free night in months on the weekend. Why is it that when you finally have the free time without children, all you want to do is relax and sleep.
If you haven’t realised yet this is a Dad Blog, and you can’t seriously have a Dad Blog without the Odd Dad Joke – or in this case, without regular Dad Jokes.
This particular Dad Joke is the perfect play on words, also a good example why you should think carefully about what you name your kids.
So that’s it for last week in terms of the blog. Obviously more happened in the week then I posted about. However balancing a full time job with being a Dad means sometimes there isn’t always time to let the world know about every little happening. If you would like to keep up to date though I’d suggest a quick follow on Twitter @DownUnderDadbg or on Instagram @downunderdadblog
