Are you part of the 68% bored by your kids?

Are you part of the 68% bored by your kids?

Coming out of a few months of lockdown I’m glad my rascals entertain me all day every day… From a few years back, enjoy! I had planned to pen a new post today on a different topic but saw this and found it extremely relevant and interesting to me. According to the UK “this morning” show today only 32% of viewers were never bored by their children, http://www.itv.com/thismorning/hot-topics/poll-have-you-been-bored-by-your-children Having been a stay at home dad for 4 months now I…

Rhythm and Rhyme at definitely the wrong time!

Rhythm and Rhyme at definitely the wrong time!

Having been attending rhythm and rhyme for the past 12 weeks with quite a degree of comfort from day one, as detailed previously when i first went http://wp.me/p5DoG8-a , this week was a nightmare. I had to go to the earlier class due to my hindrance of a broken hand leading to me not being able to drive and relying on favours. No big deal or so I thought, it`s routine now……is it not? My problems began when we had our now…

Does having kids mean you are a grown up?

Does having kids mean you are a grown up?

12 Years ago today I went travelling “around the world” as they say, seeing some amazing places and meeting some great people along the way. This morning I was chatting online with the two friends I went on my adventure with. One lives in Australia, one Dublin and me in Belfast. As the chat progressed I mentioned how times changed and one of the guys said that looking at my pictures of my little one (8 months) and the other…

A new beginning, sort of…Updated 260115

Hi Guys, quick first post. I have plenty of blog ideas going on particularly with the broken hand,  the baby being more mobile every day and this (anything but easy) switch to self hosted. Starting to think I should have waited longer but c`est la vie as they say. I`m going to spend a few days when I get a minute making my new site my own so there will be fewer new posts for a few days so please…

Blogging, a baby and a broken hand!

Blogging, a baby and a broken hand!

Late last week I decided that with only a few weeks until I return to work I was going to move to a self hosted blog and give it a real push. Then on Saturday I broke a bone in my hand resulting in a elbow length cast on my right hand, my strong hand. Now this raised several questions, how will I cope being a stay at home Dad with an 8 month old? How will I get around…

Those heart stopping baby moments…….and the comical..

Those heart stopping baby moments…….and the comical..

As parents we have all had those moments when your baby literally stops your heart.. I’m not talking about the obvious cute babble, looks, words or actions which can be heart warming whilst taking you breath away, I’m talking the moments when you quite literally stop breathing for a second when things maybe have went wrong.. An example would be when your baby first comes home and you stare at the monitor at night panicking when you don’t hear/see movement, or…

The blogging 101 reminder and the Kickstart I need!

The blogging 101 reminder and the Kickstart I need!

Hello, Having put today’s date in my diary as the start of blogging 101, which I have never used before, I was both excited and nervous to see it pop up as a reminder on  my phone.  My excitement came form another blogger recommending it as a great way to reach out to more people and increase traffic to my content. Now the nervousness or anxiety I had when I saw the reminder appeared. The reason I am blogging is…
