And we’re back… slowly the wheels of normality are starting to turn again. Having twice the amount of daughters and half the amount of sleep is feeling more and more normal.
Daddy Bloggers taking over the world…
Please excuse the following shameless self congratulation and promotion but daddy bloggers have made a little bit of a blip in the blogosphere in the last couple of weeks. There’s been comments about daddy bloggers being the next big thing, the next marketeers target and the about to wooed by the corporate world. Although I’m already picking the paint colour on the new family Aston Martin I’m not letting it go to my head!
Seriously though, there’s a bunch of guys that like to write honest, funny, painful and unusual posts in Australia at the moment who happen to be going through the challenge that is – kids. What interests me is, what do you (mainly ladies and mums) think about it all. Are we imposters? Are we “the next big thing”, are you a fan? Is there something we offer that a mum can’t or are we all just bumbling around making the same mistakes as each other?
If you’d like to see what all the fuss is about or if you’re in the mood for a slightly different perspective on the very similar situation, catch up with some daddy bloggers over at daddybloggers.com.au
Swearing Mums, FFS!
I have a guilty pleasure. For the last couple of Friday’s I’ve been avidly reading DearBabyG’s FFS posts. Since finding it, I look forward to my Friday morning coffee, giggling to myself about the comings and goings and frustrations in the DearBabyG house. Once you start clicking you won’t be able to stop yourself. A couple of my favourites;
- I have been passing the ex wife on the school runs this week … FFS
- I decided to wave at her. She didn’t appreciate my friendly gesture … FFS
- Tingling turned into a burning sensation but I bravely pushed past the pain because the kids were running late and Maggie and Sol the Chihuahua were wreaking havoc under my feet … FFS
- About 30 minutes later when I finally had a free moment to check my eyes I realised I had put ‘Nair’ under my eyes instead of eye cream. Similar tube … FFS
But there’s more than good casual swearing! Seriously, the more you flick around, the more you will like Sarah’s take on the world. With everything from her stand on choice to what she hates about Christmas, it’s worth spending some time poking around her part of the blogging universe.
