    What a lovely list and a great post for Father’s day.

    Thanks for hosting #bigfatlinky

    Thank you Jemma…. I could have written a thousand! I hope you had a good day :)

  3. Mumma McD

    Oh the smiles! Heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time :) Lovely list!

      The problem is that once i get Ted to laugh – i keep doing it until he’s bored! serious case of over-kill. I just love it so much :)

    • Al Ferguson

      Thank you. What would be on your list?

    A fab list Al! My husband loves being a dad. He is a step father so has not experienced the early years. It would be great for him to have the opportunity one day. I will have to get well first.

    That’s a lovely list! Love the last one about writing his adventures. That’s so true! Happy father’s day (about a week too late!) and thanks for hosting the #bigfatlinky

    • Al Ferguson

      Thank you very much. I hope you all had a good day :)

    There’s nothing better than those snuggles into your neck. My 3.5yr old still does that. Heaven

      I hope beyond hope Teddy never stops!

      Such a challenge- my carpet is now green and orange stained!!! AHHHH

  7. Lucy at Occupation:(m)other

    I’m not a dad but particularly love being silly without judgement…i am going to try to continue this for AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. Until my son disowns me probably. And number 10…you’ve summed up exactly what i feel when I introduce a new experience to him, i’ve been trying to find the words to explain it and that’s it. Lovely fathers’ day post. #bigfatlinky

    • Al Ferguson

      Cool, I’ll check it out :)

  8. International Elf Service

    What a lovely list – it’s so easy to whizz through the days and it’s so lovely to stop and reflect. Ted will love reading that list when he’s older!

    • Al Ferguson

      I hope so. He’ll have 1000’s posts to read.

  9. Hannah

    What a lovely post. I particularly love what you wrote about your wife since she became a mother. #bigfatlinky

  10. Joe Rawlinson

    I love the comments and insights my kids make that help me see the world in a different perspective. It is refreshing to see things through kids’ eyes. #bigfatlinky

  11. You Baby Me Mummy

    Aww you are such a softie! What a gorgeous post, I adore reading about your and Teds relationship. Thanks so much for linking up to #TheList x

    Spot on Al… other than dinner time I couldn’t agree more. Dinner time is great as far as the social aspect goes..the 4 of us sitting at the table and sharing our favorite parts of the day and a few laughs is great but man my boys can be challenging at the table. The oldest will eat anything but doesn’t want to feed himself and the youngest wants to feed himself but is super picky.

    Making them smile is great. That moment I walk in the door after work is amazing and I couldn’t agree more about falling more in love with my wife. I also really enjoy bath time and teaching them new things and those pay off moments when they catch on. Nice post Ted!!

    As a father of a 9 months old boy, i must say it is fun to read your top 10 list. Almost like you are copying my thoughts haha. Guess all father’s feel like this :)
