Yep, that’s right. We’re absolutely chuffed. Chuffed because we’ve been named as a finalist in the MAD blog awards! We’re in the Best Baby Blog category 2015 and we’re absolutely over the moon about it.

To be honest, I’m not just chuffed, but also shocked. There are literary hundreds of great baby blogs out there and to be named as a finalist is nothing less than a shock.

A chuffing shock maybe.

I urge you to take a look at the other 6 blogs in our category. They’re all amazing in their own right, and clearly deserve to be finalists.

Once you’ve had a good look at them all, please cast your vote. Obviously, we would love for it to be for us, (from every email address you have). So if you are a fan of the work we do in the name of Dads all over the world, then please take 30 seconds to spare us you vote.

Here are some cute pictures of Ted just to add to my powers of persuasion… ;)

    Many congratulations on the nomination and progression into the round of finalists! You’ve worked hard to make this happen .

    “Chuffed” still confuses me, but I’ll get over it. Heck, I almost spell things with “u” instead of “o” and “s” instead of “z” now. Might get deported from the U.S. if I’m not careful.

    Make it a great day, and good luck!

    congratulations! I like your powers of persuasion, maybe if labour or lib dems had posted cute photos they’d have done better.
