Ben and Aoife enjoyed some daddy-daughter time while I was performing at the weekend
Hope you’re all well. The Sats had a busy weekend with performances in Birmingham and Brighton. We caught up with The Wanted backstage in Brighton ‚Äď a couple of them had just flown in from Malaysia but they were glad to be home and were all on great form.
I made it back home just in time to put Aoife to bed on Sunday night. Ben had been on ‘daddy day-care duty’ all weekend and they had a lovely time together.
He really loves to get out and about with his little girl so they went to the park. Aoife loves the baby swings but that’s as adventurous as we’ve got with her at the moment because she’s still really small. She goes on the slide too but we have to keep a hold of her so she doesn’t wobble off. She goes to Baby Gym and Monkey Music every weekend too so Ben took her to those. We’re looking into Baby Ballet for her at the moment too. I got to try loads of different activities when I was little and I want her to have the same opportunities to find something she loves like I did. I also think it’s really important for her to socialise with other children at least twice a week.
Ben allowed himself some downtime too. He’s got a really good set up actually – we’ve got a room in the house which used to be his ‘man cave’ before we had Aoife. Now it’s partly Aoife’s playroom where she has her day cot but also still partly Ben’s ‘man cave’. There are two TVs in there ‚Äď one is especially for Ben’s computer games and another for whatever anyone else wants to watch. So while Aoife had her day time naps, Ben had a couple of hours off and played computer games. There were toys strewn all over the room when I got back so I could tell they’d been having lots of fun together.
