I’m interrupting my usual caught-my-eye schedule for some shameless self promotion. Well not just self, there’s actually a few people I’m promoting; a rag tag bunch of daddy bloggers, men who are willing to put it all out there in the spirit of self deprecation this Christmas.
Think of it as a blogging version of a male nude calendar. We’ve got
- Mr January: Tork at Torkona
- Mr February:Ben at beingadad
- Mr March and Mr April: the boys over at tacklenappy
- Mr May: fortyearoldad
- Mr June: melbournedad
- Mr July: Your’s truly, slightly Bond like in appearance (seriously, it’s like we were separated at birth
- Mr August: Matt over at daddownunder
- Mr Rest of the year: reservoirdad (because most posts have him ‘nuding’ up in some way, shape or form)
The way it works is that we, this merry band of men ask you, our readers to suggest a post that we must write. We’ll answer any question on any topic. For example, I’m sure Kelly has been asking herself “kev, how is it that you make parenting seem so effortless”, Kylez has been dying to know if Matt will hand deliver his veggies and Catherine has been pondering what it would take to get both the tacklenappy boys over for some lady gray action.
Ok, so this may not be exactly what these ladies are thinking but nevertheless here’s their chance and yours to get that question off your chest. The why do you, how do you, what if you style question you’ve always wanted to ask but never dared to find out.
We’ll collate the questions and then divvy them up amongst the calendar boys, hopefully with some hilarious responses. So my question to you is… what is your question to us?
Have a cracking weekend- looking forward to what you come up with. Cheers, Kev

Ok, I have some ideas, but as this is a ‘once in a lifetime’ scenario I’m going to mull it over a bit more today and get back to you later on 🙂
The cast of the Full Monty! This is an opportunity to good to waste so like Catherine I’m going to have to think about it. I wasn’t familiar with all of these bloggers so thanks for introducing them. Love hearing the male perspective on this parenting caper.
Any question hey?
Who looks the best in a floral apron?
Hydrangers or chrysanthemums
I’ve been pondering what to ask but I keep coming back to sex (sorry). What I’d like to know is how DO men REALLY feel about that sacred place and everything it goes through with childbirth? Do you watch with fear and misery wondering how you’ll ever go there again? And afterwards, do you have a hard time feeling that spark again after seeing everything stretch to oblivion? Do you ever have flashbacks during sex?
And, you know, apart from that (because my mind isn’t ALWAYS in the gutter) do you honestly respect what it is that we go through during childbirth? Do you realise the enormity of it? Are you in awe of what we’re capable of? The pain, the endurance, the recovery?
I guess that’s really 2 questions. You like?
ok so we’re going straight for the big ones!! Good question, exactly what we’re after. I’m sure one of us will be able to provide an insight
I was thinking the same thing Kel. My hubby likened watching our daughter being born, as a beautiful experience, but also similar to watching your favourite pub burn down! 🙂 LOL
I like it – I was up the talking end so my pub is still functioning 😉
Love it Jodi, he must have been thinking “I used to love going there! Nnooooooo!” lol
Oh! I love this idea!
Oh you guys are so brave, any question!! I’ll need some time to think about this!
Ok… I’ve got one. Are men ACTUALLY visually impaired, like, some kind of male pattern blindness, when it comes to locating objects inside the home? Or is it a different kind of brain/space time continuum thing going on while the eyes are moving around? This sounds stupidly sexist given you guys are raising your families and probably have a better idea where stuff is than most (don’t hate me! please!), but I seem to spend my life yelling out the location of objects that are RIGHT IN FRONT OF THAT MAN’S FACE. Also, please, as well as the posts, can we have an actual calendar?
I’m sure this has something to do with our reptiliian brains, hunter gathering instincts and time management 😉
Great question – consider it on the list
it’s always in the last place you look..
Whose idea was this again???
This is a great idea! I have been thinking about what question I want to ask on and off since I saw it on FB. Still thinking!
Get your questions in quick girls, voting lines close tomorrow at noon. So far I’m really hoping I dont have to write about leaky boobs!
Looking forward to whatever slings towards Mr January hehehe..
Hey – since you’re all men and I assume you all have penises, why don’t you weigh in on the great circumcision debate? It’s a doozey! Or do men not talk about stuff like that?
And, quite obviously, Matt is just dying to talk about leaky boobs. He won’t shut up about it!
Bahaha! I love this! I do hope you all know what you’re getting yourself into!
My question is: What’s your top 5 tips for dealing with a sleep deprived, hormonal wife who’s into her first month of motherhood?
You have 10 seconds…GO! 🙂
Ok, so I’ve been thinking and thinking and I think I am now a little late to the party. So here’s a bonus for you if you need any extras… what is the best piece of advice you’d give a soon to be first-time Dad? And also, what was one thing you thought you knew to expect but ended up catching you completely off guard about being a Dad.
