My child has more of a social life than I do. Fact. I think if you ask most parents, around 99% will agree with this. The past weekend saw me in attendance at 2 parties on the same day - mostly due to my own bad planning! Anyway, as I was sat conversing with the other mums who had called round or stayed with their little ones, it occurred to me that there weren't many Dads present. Granted, the Dads of the birthday children were there, and the odd token one to look after the sibling of the invited child, but none on their own. When I asked Mr C about this, he simply shrugged and said 'it's not a Dad thing'.
