My name is Simon. Once I was a TV producer but I’ve been a stay-at-home dad to my daughter since 2012, when she was 6 months old. I still occasionally work in TV, am a freelance writer, and a blogger.

I’m also a geek and this stay-at-home dad blog highlights how I’m sharing my love for sci-fi and superheroes with my fangirl daughter. I think little girls should aspire to be more than just princesses, that pink should be one of the many colours they enjoy, and that all toys are gender neutral toys.

I love being the stay-at-home dad of my awesome daughter, and I hope to share a little of how amazing that is along the way.

  1. Hello! Found you on Weekend Blog Hop. I’m with you against pinkification, but my daughter would have none of it! It’s a girl’s thing and I’m trying very hard to sway her away from all of that. Still, she would have none of it! :p

    Nice meeting you and your blog looks interesting! 🙂

    1. Thanks, you too 🙂 It’s all about encouraging choice in the end, and if that’s what your daughter has chosen then so be it. My daughter’s only 3, so still plenty of time for her to try a different path.

  2. I love your blog. I always hated pink growing up, probably because I was expected to like it and me being defiant by nature, pink just wouldn’t do. No, instead, I went to purple and purple is still my favorite color ever! Go to my blog and you will see. While I never actively encouraged my boys to seek out girls products, I never discouraged it either. My eight year loves My little Pony and has all of the plushies. He’s at an age now though that he is getting embarrassed to show them to his male friends so when one of them said he liked My little Pony too, it was awesome! It made him feel better. WE also love superheroes but also love monsters. Once when he was three, he begged me to polish his nails so I did. Visiting from #weekendblogshare

  3. Great blog! I think that just as important as it is that girls need not be pink princesses, boys should be encouraged to play with other toys than action figures.
