Parenthood for Dummies
Being a father is a wild ride. My name is Christopher & these are my observations, theories & comments on life as the dad of my two boys Ripley & Jayden. I write this to air my thoughts & update my friends & family with photos, videos and such like. For everyone else I offer hints and tips on parenting as I learn them. For legal reasons I make no direct reference to my employer or any of my colleagues.

And the Name is...
Ripley Thomas Howarth
Penny put her foot down, probably bored of the wasted evenings talking about potential middle names, so Thomas was the name of choice. I like it, my only reservations are:
1) It is 2 syllables. Ripley (2) Thomas (2) Howarth (2) - doesn't roll very well.
2) R T Howarth ? R T ? Arty! Oh well.. he might be arty I suppose (better than RC which ironically he is at the moment)
3) I wanted Danger to be his middle name :D
As you can tell we have been thinking about this a lot :)
Penny is unwell at the moment. I feel bad, I have to work so Penny is looking after the baby when she really should be resting and getting better. I help as much as I can without it affecting my work + Penny's parents are a great help, I can tell they are really getting attached to Ripley.
