Earlier this week I was interviewing Hollywood mega-stars Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd about the new Ant Man film. Today it’s my turn to appear on the screen, albeit a smaller one. I shot the above video as part of a campaign by Johnsons’s Baby to celebrate dads.
It was a delight to record this Daddy Diary. All too often parenting brands, especially those that specialise on the early years, focus on mums. Johnson’s has gone out its way to acknowledge us dads and I approve!
The true stars of the video are, of course, my wonderful daughters; Helen, aged six, and Elizabeth, aged two. It was mostly recorded over the course of a weekend. In the video we do some finger painting, go on a nature walk, visit the park, go to a petting farm and go for a bite to eat at a restaurant.
The video is one of a series. You can see other Daddy Diaries on the Johnson’s Baby Facebook page. Do go and take a look so you can see some great dads having adventures with their own kids.
It’s no secret that I have recently been bitten by the vlogging bug. If you’d like to see other videos I’ve recorded, please do stop by my YouTube channel.
Disclosure: I was compensated for participating in the production of this Daddy Diary.

Oh John I’ve headed to their FB page and what a touching film, you are seriously the best Dad ever and it was wonderful to see you in Daddy mode as whenever we’ve met it’s been crazy BritMums mode haha! What a wonderful campaign and here’s to many more x
Kind words Vicki. Yes, I was on full-on daddy mode when recording that film. It was fun and glad to see a brand like Johnson’s Baby working with dads.
I’ve just watched this video and it’s gorgeous. Lovely to see you in Daddy action & I agree that showing children the way but allowing them to explore and learn their own life lessons is so very important.
Well done for making the cut with J&J; it’s a lovely campaign
Thanks Tracey, very kind of you to say so. It was great fun to do andthe kids loved being part of it.
Loved this! I heard myself in you! Great vlog and thank you for sharing this with us on #wineandboobs
Perhaps we’re twins??
