Ez a négygyerekes apuka az Instagram új sztárja
Simonnak négy, azaz négy kislánya van, és ebből az alaphelyzetből születnek az őrületesen cuki fotók.
why is it that as soon as I come through the front door, I’m immediately forced to strap on my ‘parenting UN’ flack jacket & hard hat and dive into conflict resolution mode? Anya and Marnie are locked in a long, drawn out battle over the disputed lands of the sofa, the sovereignty of the blanket and who has rightful ownership of the much sort after SKY remote control. Sanctions are put in place to relieve the tension but both sides are showing little willingness to back down. The situation escalates – heated worded, threats to hostages safety (soft toys, clothing, sweets). The result – the TV going off and remote is hidden (in the cutlery draw). During all this Ottie played the role of Switzerland and didn’t get involved. Ban Ki-moon could learn a thing or two from me. #wheredoyouhideyourremote #UNparenting #whyamialwaysinthemiddle #familyconflictresolution #adadsworkisneverdone #fatherofdaughters #dadlife #instadad
Nagycsalád így, nagycsalád úgy, az biztos, hogy egyszerre nagyon embert próbáló és szép feladat, ha egy párnak 4 gyereke van. A londoni Simon Hooper 4 kiscsaj (egy 9, egy 6 éves és egy 10 hónapos ikerpár) boldog apukája, és Instagram profilja pont erről szól. De ami igazán szívderítő, hogy nem önti le cukormázzal a valóságot, a képei kellő iróniával mutatják be mindennapjaikat, amelyeket természetesen a szeretet ural. Simon profilja elég gyorsan össze is gyűjtött 176 ezer követőt, ami nem csoda, a képek tényleg nagyon cukik.
Teething is now in full effect and the girls want us to know all about it. An email would have sufficed but it seems they’d rather use their voices to get the message across that they really aren’t enjoying this stage of development. Its not straight screaming, it’s more like the sound a wounded animal might make that just wants to end it all. I can’t blame them though, it’s like a mini scene from ‘Alien’ in there at the moment, just in very very slow motion (and of course teeth don’t then go on to kill you and the crew of your ship so a few subtle differences but essentially the same). #canyoubulkbuybonjela #teethinglikealien #twins #thisisntfunforanyone #doubleteethingisnotdoublethefun #fatherofdaughters #instadad #dadlife #daddydentist
Egyébként az anyuka, Clementine Insta profilja is több, mint 100 ezer követővel büszkékedhet. A mama amúgy nemcsak instasztár, de blogger is, és jövőre jelenik meg első könyve.
we have A LOT of toys for the girls. Some hand-me-downs, some brand new. We offer up the hand made, ethically sourced, non toxic, bespoke blocks made from organic, carbon offset wood, lovingly sourced from Norway. They look down their nose at them with disgust, decide they’re tosh and toss them to one side. Then they go on a rampage to find keys, my wallet, my phone, anything that resembles a remote control and plastic packaging. If that fails, they bug me until i give up the goods. Many mornings, you’ll find me running around the house, quietly cursing the babies, who’ve hidden my cash / debit card and /or keys. guess I should get used to this as I hear teenage girls take the same stuff. #stophidingmyshit #pointlessexpensivetoys #allthebabieswantismywallet #girlstakemystuff #ishouldgetusedtoit #fatherofdaughters#dadlife #instadad
The curse of being called Simon when at a children’s birthday party – I am immediately rolled out for the obligatory game of ‘Simon says’. Of course I take it easy to start with and filter out those that can’t keep up. After separating the wheat from the chaff, we get to the hard core pros who know their stuff. I finally kill them all off with the old stand on one leg, close one eye and stick out your tongue. The remaining kids think I’m taking it too seriously, get bored and run off leaving me looking like a proper tool. I might have taken competitive dadding too far- they’re only 6 after all, oh well. #competitivedad #ifyouplaywithmeweplayforreal #playhard #happybirthday #simonsays #happysunday #fatherofdaughters #instadad #parenting #kidsparty #dadlife
So our little family dynamics experiment begins. The girls left for #campbestival at 7am all excited (which will turn into the being annoying after about 10 mins in the car) so the twins and I are fending for ourselves. I’m sure this whole festival was orchestrated basically to test whether I can keep 2 babies alive, not trash the house and pack for holiday without assistance – we’ll see……..Dad rules have been invoked. ice cream for breakfast anyone? #dadrules #soloparenting #clemmieismoreexcitedthanthekids #festivalwidower #meandmygirls #fatherofdaughters #instadad #dadlife #twins
Why does bathtime always involve cramming as many family members into one of the smallest rooms in the house at the same time? I guess the eldest 2 like it as it’s like a cheap version of the sea life centre. They get to watch these weird pink slippery things splash about and generally contort themselves out of these chairs while sucking the life out of some sponges. Clemmie and I are there just play life guards and crowd control. I should charge admission. Just avoid the dirty nappies at the door and the water EVERYWHERE. Actually, forget it – Health and safety would definitely shut us done. #waterstaysinthebathgirls #bathtime #sealifecentreathome #cheapentertainment #twins #mygirls #theyneverstayinthesechairs #fatherofdaughters #dadlife #instadad
Feeling rather loved today being surrounded by the girls ive created with @mother_of_daughters . Without them i wouldnt be a father, and without being a father I wouldnt be the man I am today – I have alot to thank them for – I’m a lucky man. (Now off to brunch and then being left alone for the day to do what i want to do – perfect). Happy fathers day all. #fathersday #mygirls #daughters #twins #dadlife #lifeofdad #fatherofdaughters #instadad #parenting
