It’s been a week

Well having a week with the missus and baby was fun, though a little strange. It’s times like this that we realise plans are important so that we don’t just waste the time.

This is a lesson we learnt by the middle of the week. As the stay-at-home dad I treat weekends as a certain amount of a break. I look after the boy until 11am every weekday, and on all but 2 days a week I also look after him for the rest of the day. So on weekends I delegate responsibility, and I decided to continue that into the start of the week.

Unfortunately my version of delegation is a bit too subtle so we end up just drifting along doing very little, not helped by the little ones bad sleeping pattern at the moment.

We managed to get past all of that though and had a great final few days of the week, including a lovely time in Richmond Park that was only slightly spoilt by the failure of the sun to break through the clouds. My personal fave moment then was seeing the little one, recently found stick in hand, running towards the birds (not in a chasing way, just fascinated). He looked like a little savage stalking prey. That’s my boy!

We also managed to get to the Wacky Warehouse in Greenford on one of the days which was great fun. He generally loved all the soft-play things, clambering around, though wasn’t as happy with the deep ball-pools which he would slowly disappear into…

Rounding out the week with our usual visit to Monkey Music, but this time with Mummy, made it a good birthday week for me overall.

Worthwhile Charity

I read quite a few parenting blogs, some are good, some are bad. In the good section is AllThatComesWithIt.com.

And today he’s written a post that has put me to shame as I finished off a pointless Toffee Crisp. Check out Lydia the chocolate-free lady, and get some cash into that young girl’s JustGiving page.

Back to Nursery

Back to Nursery

So it’s back to Nursery day today, and I’m up at just gone 6am writing this (I was actually awake at 5.30 but no part of my body was idiotic enough to make me get up at that point), planning the day. It was quite a varied week all told. The plan for the week [...]

Back in the fold

Back in the fold

Wow, it has been a while hasn’t it? I am of course talking about the gap since my last blog post and this, and not talking about the last time that the News of the World was just a little amusing jokey paper you would buy for a giggle. After having some initial successes at [...]

7-year Itch

7-year Itch

Saturday marked seven years with the other half. I realise I am so lucky to have finally found this relationship and for it to have blossomed in the way that it has. There have been ups and downs, of course there has, but we’ve ridden them all confident in the choice we made to be [...]

A day of scrapes

A day of scrapes

Today has so far been a day of scrapes. After an early morning visit to the local park, the little one could count one scraped lip area, as well as a scrape and a bump on the side of his head. It’s a consequence of combining his inquisitiveness, with the toddler’s law requiring them to [...]

Having a break

Having a break

This coming Wednesday will be my birthday, my exact age is a secret to save my wrinkly embarrassment. The other half is taking the week off and we are planning on doing lots of things with the little boy, out and about. So I won’t be posting much this week. Enjoy the break!
