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..

My 10 minute love affair with the TV!

Once upon a time I enjoyed a great relationship with my TV, spending most evenings in front of it watching some drama or other. We used to love the apprentice, I’m a celebrity and the occasional sports game. Then we stepped our affair with the TV up a gear when we knew the little one was due.

Heisenberg, weaning and cereal..

Weaning has begun at home, so what have we learnt so far?
