We’ve all heard of ‘Bitchy Resting Face‘, well apparently I’ve got ‘Grumpy Resting Face’
There’s nothing worse is there? You know what I mean. You’re doing your thing (reading, on your phone or watching the TV) and suddenly the conversation goes like this…
“What’s up with you?”
It’s the day of my little mans 7th Birthday. So I’ve decided to ask him some questions. I intend to do this every birthday from here on to document the changes in his life. So without further adeiu …let’s get stuck in.
You think you’d know what you’d pick till you start trying to pick them. Do I have enough rock? Easy listening. I have to have something dancey! This one has a great memory attached, Oh! but this is a better song. Oh my god how can I leave that out….ARGH!!!
Ok here goes…..
Here is a tongue in cheek list of advice for all new stay at home dads. You’ll have to read between the lines as to the goings on in this mad house!!
Please note that this advice should be taken with a pinch of salt. Actually scratch that. This advice should be taken with enough salt to induce instant kidney failure.
There was a recent tweet that went around asking you to tweet something from your childhood that kids nowadays wouldn’t understand and it got me thinking…..
So I was just sitting there minding my own business, observing the Friday night ritual known as ‘wine o’clock’ between the Bear and an (as yet unnamed) neighbour. Then…. they got round to the subject of my blog.
Bear: I usually don’t know what he’s put up until one of the girls in my office tells me. Then I have to go and check what he’s said this week.
(quick glance in my direction)
Bear: One of the girls said they loved the blog but…..’He makes ya out to be some wagon?’
Daddy: Makes ya out?…..ha!
(not sure if I thought that or said it out loud, shit they’re looking over, time to slink back into ‘observation mode’… like a tortoise retreating into the sanctuary of his shell)
Bear: Sure look at him, sitting there on his phone probably taking notes. Ya can’t say nothing anymore.
(I splutter out an involuntary chuckle, as that’s exactly what I’m doing)
Bear: This better not go in your blog!!
Daddy: Hahahaha, I promise
