My #MagnificentLittleMan helping me out with breakfast! (In reality he was being an utter pain for Ruth while trying to get the #twins dressed so we were basically #tagteaming them). #dadlife #twinstagram #twinsofinstagram #dadoftwins #twindad #breakfast #toddlersofinstagram #toddlergram #POTD

Thanks to my beautiful @rufus2612 for a lovely birthday night out. It was great. Just the two of us. Zizzi’s, silly yummy chocolate puddingy goodness and a walk along the river of this great city. #LoveLondon #LoveMyWife #EarlyBirthdayCelebrations #Thames #Chiswick #NightTimeWalks #RiverWalks #POTD

Over a year ago the curtain rail failed at being what it was made to be. It couldn’t fulfill it’s plasticky destiny. Today a new rail rose like a Phoenix out of the ashes.. well off the shelf from #BandQ and this time it didn’t break. And yay the Robinsons had curtains and all was good and winter nights would be warmer and neighbours would be subject to less lounging but children would have a potential new toy for which the window guardians would have to work hard in completing their own noble quest… #firstworldproblems #diy #TheyNeedAGoodIron #warmandtoasty #POTD

There we were doing the bedtime routine and I was looking at my little boy as he so eagerly listened to his moma read the story. His beautiful little eyes transfixed on the page and his curls flopping all over his little head. He looked over at me with a grin and it reminded me of bath time last week when we had a fake code brown. I think the exact words I used were; “It’s a poo, its a poo, Oisín’s done a poo, oh, wait no, it’s a horse, yup just a horse, a toy horse… But that’s not what this is about. Back to his curls and bath time. So after the false alarm we did the usual thing of get them out of the bath and ready for bed. As I carried him through wrapped up tight in a towel I had a nostalgia boom back to a very early and very happy memory of my own bath times as a small boy. Specifically I remembered how my big eldest sister Sandra used to sometimes do my bath. At the end she used to style my hair with a “Super Man” curl as that was how Christopher Reeve had his for the role. While Oisín was so full of smiles and joy it made me remember how I loved those times too. It made me remember how brilliant my sister was with me then. I remember how brilliant she was at being the eldest sibling. She was always kind, loving and brilliant. Now she is an amazing mother to 6 fantastic children and an brilliant wife to her husband and an amazing friend to those who know her well. She’s also STILL a wonderful sister. She is someone I admire greatly and who I have the deepest respect for. Happy Birthday Sandra Holmes! You’re the bestest! I love you loads. #family #love #bigsis #bigsisters #instasis (Photo courtesy of @mostlytom #thanksbro I didn’t ask but assumed it’d be fine in the spirit of sibling love. Love you too BTW.) #POTD

Been a lovely family day and its especially been fun seeing @rufus2612 with her #sister @tagterry (and husband Andrew over from Australia). When they are together it’s fascinating to see how alike they are. #love #family #lastdaysofsummer #GoodGenes #WalleysForLife #POTD

#naptime for the #twins has involved pushing them round in the buggy for an hour and then nearly back to the start and they fall asleep. Currently sitting on a fallen tree resting while they snooze. #dadsofinstagram #DadLife #twinstagram #twinsofinstagram #boygirltwins #WalksWithTheTwins #POTD

I’ve got to a stage of life where everyday I jump out of my skin because I see one of my children’s animal toys and mistake it for a horrific freak of nature that’s trying and kill me. This one was in the bath! #DadLife #dadsofinstagram #parenting #beingdad #ItsOnlyAToy #POTD
