So, I’m a dad – I guess that’s pretty obvious from the title of this blog. I have two daughters – one is currently three-and-a-half and I see her at weekends, while the other is ten months and I see her every day, as we all live together.
The idea behind this blog is twofold:
1) To enable and encourage me to write regularly and not about things that I write every day at work. Although it might sound fun to tell people what you think of Sienna Miller’s latest red carpet outfit, believe me, it gets boring!
2) Being a dad is not talked about that much. Everyone, probably naturally, concentrates on the mum’s role in bringing up baby, as it were. Poor old dad is usually left to bring home enough money to buy weekly groceries and fund the endless supply of nappies, clothes and toys, to name but a few things. I want to try and redress that balance in somme small way, but posting my musings about being a good, hopefully, dad.
I probably should have started this a year or so ago, as I’ll have nothing to say about the early months, but hey, both of my girls have a lot of years to go and a lot trials and tribulations to go through. I’m sure there’ll still be plenty to comment about.
That’s it for the moment – I’ll be back with something new soon!
