Not only did the little one REALLY turn down cake, she turned down cake – after I resorted to the bribery approach to parenting – in front of a load of other parents.
Two minutes later she somehow managed to get hold of my far nicer cake.
It all started with a random moment the other day when, Martin from Father Lee Moments wondered on The Dad Network Bloggers group, “I’ve often thought who from the world of cbeebies I would like on my team in the case of a zombie apocalypse!”
Now with the shops filled with Halloween monsters, and memories of 28 days later playing over (and over) in my mind, my imagination may have kicked in.
Therefore, here is my look at what CBeebies characters*, I would include in my team during a zombie apocalypse.
Duck. (From Sarah and Duck) Back when Sarah and Duck came to our screens, we joined them for a trip to the zoo, which ended with Sarah being surrounded by hungry penguins. Therefore, I would suggest Duck would be a handy companion for anyone surrounded by hungry zombies, he can swoop in, pick you up and fly you to safe ground.
Gem from Swashbuckle. She can apply the pirate dealing skills to the zombie apocalypse. I bet she’ll either be handy in a fight, or at least stealing jewels that can be used to bargain for food, weapons, or petrol at some point.
Tree Fu Tom, from the action packed CBeebies show. Tree Fu Tom. He is one who can channel Big World Magic to rescue his friends, and solve all sorts of issues. He just needs someone to send him the big world magic.
Maddie Moate from “Do You Know?” – Every team needs someone to be the “brains” of the outfit. Maddie Moate from the show “Did You Know?” would be the brains of the CBeebies zombie team. As long as she had the special cameras on hand to show us how it all works!
Peter Rabbit. Picture it. You are surrounded. Zombie hoards are closing in all around you. These aren’t slow slow zombies either, these are crap inducing, rage fuelled zombies that run faster then light. You don’t need to be fast, you need to be proper fast! You don’t just need to be Peter Rabbit fast, you need the updated cbeebies Peter Rabbit fast! Plus I imagine him being pretty handy in finding food.
Well that’s my team to get me through the zombie apocalypse. What do you reckon my chances are?
Check out Father Lee Moments for his take on what cbeebies characters would be in his team during the zombie apocalypse.
Who would you include?
*Obviously I may have played a little fast and loose with the term “character” at points.
Love this from Raised By My Daughter on Facebook.
Remember Goldie Lookin’ Chain? The comedy rap group from Wales that had a hit ages ago with “Guns Don’t Kill People, Rappers Do“?
They’ve released a new track embracing the world of Fatherhood called “Pusherman”…
Probably best not to watch this with Little People that may ask questions…
For people who love a bit of sarcasm…
The Little One is four today. Four! She is growing from a toddler to a preschooler to an actual little person within a blink of an eye. Time seems to be rushing forward, and before I know it she’ll be going to big school and everything!
Taking inspiration from Al over The Dad Network I thought I would blog a list of things that my daughter (probably) wouldn’t remember, but I would.
Instead, I figured I would take a photo of my notes, and save the notebook on a shelf somewhere.
So Little One… Here are a collection of memories from before you were 4.
