Not one to turn his nose up to donning a frock for his daughter, Glenn Urquhart is a dad with a whip-smart tongue and a big heart. Working as a freelance director, writer, editor, gaming and Sci-Fi nut, he tackles life and parenting head-on as one of the guests on The Parent Panel.
He shares five of his musings on life with his partner Jemilah and daughters Laurelei and Wren.
1. What is your favourite thing about being a parent?
All of it. Including the carnage and the chaos.
2. What’s your favourite thing to do with your children?
Just hang out with them and do whatever they want to do, reading, playing, using my testicles as a bouncy castle.
3. What is the thing you miss most about life before you became a dad?
Not being able to write whenever I want.
4. What has surprised you the most about being a parent?
How I stepped up and became more responsible.
5. What does 'me time' look like for you?
Red Wine, Sci-fi, No pants.
