My blog usually focuses on Beta Mummy and her practically perfect counterpart, Alpha Mummy, but someone recently asked me if there was a Beta Daddy…
Well, as regular readers will know, there’s no longer a daddy (Alpha, Beta or otherwise) living in my house, but I thought it was only fair to deflect some attention away from my own parental shortcomings for a change, and focus on some Dad-fails.
So – are you a Beta Daddy? Or maybe you fancy yourself as more of an Alpha… I want to hear your stories of when your true Alpha/Beta status has shone through.
Perhaps you had the kids to yourself for the weekend and had all sorts of wholesome activities planned…Baking? A lovely walk? Only for it to go horribly wrong. Maybe you had an unfortunate crotch-head-butt incident which resulted in a trip to A&E. What about other dads – do you find yourself drawing comparisons with them and thinking they’re so much more Alpha than you?
I want stories of poonamis, disastrous trips out and about, vomit (theirs or yours?!), embarrassment, hair removal, beer guts and equipment-malfunctions. Basically, I want your posts to make me feel better about myself!
Love from Beta Mummy xx
