In an effort to encourage parents to get out and about and create magical experiences with their kids each month I post a video of the fun Ive had with my own kids to give you a taste of whats possible.
I hope you enjoy it. Love Hugs and Kisses Benji.
My sincere thanks to Conor Pope for such wonderful praise of Before you Sleep during Late Lunch Live interview on TV3. That deserves a big hug, Thanks Conor
Check out some of the pictures you sent into Adam
March 2015: Spring is in full swing Don't be a bum get out and have fun
"This book is so profoundly powerful that the whole world should know about it".
"I would like to thank you for the beautiful stories you have created and the impact the stories have had on our lives."
"I got a copy of your first book "Before You Sleep" from my cousin and to say that I was blown away would be an understatement!"
"Just wanted to send you a personal note as your book has touched the hearts of everyone in our house".
"I'd like to thank you for reminding me of the important things in life".
Feel free to have a look at some recent messages I received from some happy families.
Having read a parenting article on Mummypages.ie about what parents should not say to their kids I felt compelled to write a response. It is very easy for a blogger to dish out advice of do's and don'ts pressurising parents who are already trying to do their best with Political correctness without offering any solutions or putting situations in context
There is always time to have fun as a family this is what we got up to in the dark days of January.
Molly and Robbie always have such great fun when they are out. This is them in a show shoe shop when they started dancing to the music that was on in the shop. Enjoy...
We've all heard the expression, "You need a licence to have a dog but any fool can have a baby."
Now, admittedly I am one of those fools and I have had 4 babies so I'm glad they haven't brought in that law because if the
y did my kids would be off to the pound probably with half the kids in the country.
Before I start my blog I just want to say sorry it has been a while since my last blog as over the past 2 weeks I was away in London promoting and at present Jackie is away leaving me home alone with 3 nutty kids and no instructions, but at least were having fun.
"Quick Quick!" "Hurry Hurry!" "Come on we're late!" Give it to me I'll do it. No! you'll hurt yourself. Be careful I've just cleaned up. I'll do it you will only spill it. No! you'll make a mess. Don't do that. Stop shouting. Stop running around you'll break something. Be quiet your making too much noise. Look at the mess you've made.
Now look what you made me do!
All Sound Sound Fimilar?
Also where is the nearest stockist of your books... I’m in Blackpool

This was the little bit of magic we found on our family walk today. These are the unexpected magical moments that visit our children’s lives that wrap them in a blanket of happiness wonder and inspiration. To experience these “Kisses” from heaven all we need to do is to walk out the door and let the moments find us inspire us and fill us with Love Hugs and Kisses.

So! The run is done. I’ve just finished making pancakes for all the kids (and me) yum yum! Then it’s a walk in Killiney followed by roasties and Gravy. That’s a family day filled with love hugs and kisses in our house. What’s happening on your love hugs and Kisses day? #pancakes #sundayfunday #sunday #family #funwithkids #love #happiness
This video came up on my news feed as being more powerful than any John Lewis Ad. It’s touching and emotional for so many reasons. But watching it has made me think again of how powerful and important Adam’s message is. I have lived through and know the pain of this kind of loss represented in this video for real. Just like the mum in this video I told Adam he was loved every day and had to say good bye. To say the words I love you to some one you love is just as important hearing someone tell you they love you. For me telling Adam how much I loved him is just as important as the man in the video hearing it from his mum. Fill you life with love hugs and kisses because with them comes memories emotions and happiness that fill thy emptiness when someone we love is gone. Love Benji
A little Message from Adam to remember this Black Friday. Love Benji
"It's time to sleep my bundle of joy, I love you much more than a Christmas day toy, Even much more than a Christmas Eve night, Sweet dreams my love I kiss you good night." Fast asleep half way through Adam saves Christmas. Precious moments.
I bought the books online following recommendations from a very good friend and what a discovery! I absolutely love them, they are beautiful, my baby girl is only three months old and she seems to love Adam 😊😊😍😍 I would suggest, if you haven't done so yet, to translate them to different languages. Reading the story behind these books makes them even more beautiful. Thanks you for sharing, from a brand new mum.
These books are so amazing and beautiful❤my son loves me reading these to him he has the full collection each one is magical and touching. They all have there own special meaning. My wee boy is four and he simply loves them. Such a truely inspirational person keep up the good work we both hope there will be more books xx

There are many ingredients to raising happy children and often different children need different ingredients. But of all the things we fill our children’s lives with, Nature and outdoors garnished with love hugs and kisses will always be found in the mix for raising happy children. Enjoy your next family walk. Benji #family #nature #familywalk #happykids #bedtimestories #happiness #familyfun #lovequotes #instakids #instababy

OLD MEMORIES OF THIS PITCH FLOODING BACK WITH A MAGICAL ATMOSPHERE AT A RUGBY MATCH IN MEMORY OF MY SCHOOL RUGBY COACH NOEL TURLEY, A MASSIVE INFLUENCE ON SO MANY. LOVE HUGS AND KISSES NOEL RIP Benji
I just wanted to say thanks as you helped start my child's love of reading from a very young age. When he was little we bought your books and read them to him and then we had another little man who also had them read to him. Once they got big enough they started reading them by themselves. You were in their school on Thursday and my eldest who is 11 couldn't wait to meet you and have his book signed.. . His brother wasn't in as he was ill but you signed his book too and mentioned it was a 1st edition 😂📙 which he was thrilled with. So I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to come to their school and make them very happy with signed books.
I can't really believe it's been 10 Years since I published Before you Sleep. Its been a beautiful and sometimes hard journey filing the world with Love, Hugs and Kisses through Adams message.

This means that every time someone purchases an Adams Cloud book not only do they help fill the world with Love Hugs and Kisses but you also help bring a little bit of magic, support and love to thousands of children and their families who have worry, illness and hardship visit their home. To help spread Adam's message and fill the world with happy children Fluff has very kindly agreed to deliver all Orders for 2 or more boosk free of charge world wide in November. I am really hoping you can help share this news with your friends and family Lots of Love Hugs and Kisse Benji
