The Uncool Dad dresses as Chewbacca and gets ridden by his three-year-old for Halloween
Soho isn’t really the first place that comes to mind when planning taking your children trick or treating. With such a “lively” atmosphere, you wouldn’t be blamed for raising an eyebrow if you saw families doing the rounds with hopes of filling their bags with sugary swag.

So without further ado.. Continue reading “The Uncool Sneaker Dads Vol. 2 ft Jack Brint”
The Uncool Dad on the perils of wearing white sneakers around the kids
We were walking down Oxford Street – myself with the Missus, the two minis and the mini-mini in his tank (ok his pram. But it’s a solid piece of baby ride hence its nickname). The pavement was wet from the prior rainfall. And then it happened – the moment when I was ready to set my step-son’s Pokémon cards on fire.
