Di­ary Of A Bad Dad

One of my many nick­names for Tod­dler­na­tor the Ter­ri­ble is munt­jac - be­cause he’s a solid lit­tle unit and as cute as a but­ton. Imag­ine my shock when I came across a head­line on a na­tional web­site which read “Me­nace of the Bambi thugs: Yes, they look heart-melt­ingly cute.

But be­hind the doe eyes, munt­jac deer are a breed­ing and gar­den-de­stroy­ing ma­chine - and now they’re even killing peo­ple’’.

Ac­tu­ally it kind of fits apart from the breed­ing bit and the killing peo­ple – al­though bat­ter­ing his ‘sis’ over the head with his plas­tic gui­tar left him fac­ing a GBH charge in the court of mum and dad.

He’s cute, he’s got the eyes and he’s a gar­den (and more wor­ringly home) de­stroy­ing ma­chine.

I left him alone in the lounge for a minute and he caused such may­hem that if it hadn’t been for the fact the telly was still there, I’d have sworn we’d had bur­glars.

Oh deer!
