I knew it would happen eventually. My wife, Sarah, turned to me and asked when The News is next running its Cute Kids competition as she wants to enter our son, Freddie.
I know I’m biased being his father, but I do happen to think he’s rather cute.
Can I believe I’m saying these words?
For years I’ve rushed through those pages of smiling kids with disinterest, as I do with the school reception class pics.
But now my situation has changed.
I’ve started looking through Freddie’s wardrobe for the outfit he can wear for his photoshoot.
I’d be so proud if he won and I reckon he’d thank me when he’s all grown-up!
