That Don Corleone and me.
Like two peas in a pod, we are.
You might not think it to look at us but on the parenting front, at least, we're singing from the same sheet.
Take the following line, for example: "...a man who doesn't spend time with his children can never be a real man."
There's no question that I don't put the hours in.
For me, Marlon Brando doesn't feature enough on parenting blogs.
Until now, that is.
You might have noticed that I'm sporting a rather spiffing badge featuring Mario Puzo's gregarious Godfather.
It's because, I'm pleased to report, I've been named @SAHDandproud's Don of the Week.
If you've never looked in on @SAHDandproud, click here.
You'll not regret it because, as blogs go, it's a blinder, a regular read here at @homedad HQ, and it's an honour to receive such an award from such a fine fella.
The Don award is, I'm told, in recognition of Fiction Fridays, the first meme to emanate from this here blog.
Fiction Fridays proved popular on its first ever outing last week, and I've had messages from several bloggers keen to join in this time around.
If you missed Fiction Fridays, click here to learn more.
The rules, guidelines and official #FF badge can be found here. The first Fiction Fridays post - #FF1 - is here.
I'm pleased to report that @SAHDandproud didn't miss the inaugural #FF and it's no surprise that his choice ranked amongst the @homedad favourites. You can find it here.
Other fabulous Fiction Friday included these from @stressymummy, @mummy_cool, @musodad and @childledchaos.
Thanks to everyone for taking part, I hope you'll join in again this week, and thanks again to @SAHDandproud, whose badge I'm wearing with pride.
