Parents, how do you do it?

I don’t know how people managed to do any work during the pandemic lockdowns with two kids at home. We’ve been struggling during the pandemic with one, but we managed well. Now that we have a second (I guess we needed a challenge), we have literally been actively parenting every single second of each day,Continue reading “Parents, how do you do it?”

Who are you!?

It’s been one week since the birth of my daughter. At first, it seemed like our two-year old son really liked having a sister. He was super cute with her, and really careful in touching her. A real caring brother. Nothing makes a father more proud than seeing a young toddler being so caring towardsContinue reading “Who are you!?”

One afternoon. I think. I hope.

She really came two days too early. I had planned to be finished with everything work-related by the end of last week.

On other days, you know what you want toContinue reading “Some days are better than others”

It’s a bit of a milestone, no?

Today is a special day, as it marks the last day of three months of my daily writing challenge. This post is also my 100th blog post. (I already had a couple of older longer format posts on here from over the years, if you wonder why the maths don’t match up) I started thisContinue reading “It’s a bit of a milestone, no?”

Everything is awesome

Sometimes you have one of these rare days where EVERYTHING seems to go well. The day feels awesome, you feel awesome, life feels awesome. Everything is awesome. Yesterday, for me, was such a day. Obviously, as I wrote yesterday, I missed my covid shot (I convinced myself that this can happen if the opportunity isContinue reading “Everything is awesome”
