Have had a rough two weeks to be honest and this post has been pending during that time, few domestic issues and a baby who has not slept well with her teeth and a cold/flu……..what is sleep?!? Anyway on we go……..
As I approach the end of my 16 weeks being a stay at home Dad to Sarah before becoming a working dad I thought I would capture some of the highlights in number form, feel free to click the links included which helped my reflection,
1 broken bone in hand (now healed but proved a challenge with an 8 month old http://wp.me/p5DoG8-1W )
16 weeks being a stay at home dad.
112 days away from work.
13 rhythm and rhyme classes (after much scepticism, http://wp.me/p5DoG8-a 2 missed at Christmas and 1 with broken hand, above)
1000 nappies changed (rough estimate, certainly felt like it!)
1/2 a stone gained in weight. (not sure how with the above output!)
4 new teeth for Sarah, ouch. (None for me)
Countless hours sleep lost (especially with above)
100 miles walked together (Sarah mostly slept whilst I pounded the beat)
2 Audiobooks listened to.
11 years worth waiting for to have a Christmas off work in retail.
1 car seat group moved up into.
Comical moments, countless, http://wp.me/p5DoG8-1Q
3 new words spoken (gaga, papa, mama) along with never ending mumbles
The time we had together to bond… PRICELESS!
1 little cheery face I will miss during the day
What happens now with me going back to work full time,into a demanding role in quite a period of transition, no one knows. I want to keep my blogging journey around fatherhood going and that is what I will aspire to do,
Thanks for reading
