Everyone else is tickled pink

Children adore being spoilt by their grandparents, but is it too much?

VERITY LUSH: Don’t blame gran for kids munching on e-numbers

Apart from our dog Ralph, I’m the only male in the house.

I live with three females – my partner Serena and our two girls. So I’m outnumbered.

When our second child Alyssa arrived, I instantly knew that our house would forever be a girlie house.

So that means the universal colour of femininity, pink, is everywhere.

Right now I can see three dollies on the floor, all with pink outfits on.

Caitlin and Alyssa are in their pyjamas: both pink.

On the other side of the room is Alyssa’s high chair and you’ve guessed it…pink!

Even when I get in my car, there are two pink car seats in the back.

At the minute we’re in the process of deciding what colour to paint their bedrooms.

No need to wonder what colour has been put forward.

I don’t dislike pink but I feel it’s time to reclaim a bit of masculinity in the house.

Or at the very least look into building a shed at the end of the garden where pink will be banned.
