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.

Father of 2 update
Another blog entry, which means - you guessed it - another taxi ride to the airport. It is cold, dark and wet this morning, in fact the rain has caused widespread flooding through my part of England. I am getting over a nasty cold, cough and slight flu, but still feel a bit down in the dumps.
Thought I had better write something on being a double dad; I guess it is easier this time, it seems that Penny is more relaxed, life is a lot simpler when you have the experience of having had one baby already. I have been more helpful this time, conscious of the fact that Penny was so exhausted last time, the problem is I have exhausted myself. Ripley is in his terrible twos now, it is just starting to surface, tantrums, screaming, generic naughtiness, etc. Still pretty cute at this stage :) he always brightens our day and thinks I am amazing today because he heard I was flying in a jet plane.
I am starting a new job which is big learning curve, I have climbed more severe curves in the past but somehow life seems more challanging when you don't feel well and haven't had enough sleep. I am digging deep and pulling out some enthusiasm, but my new job will, initially at least, involve some time away from home and I take home sickness to a whole new level of projectile vomitting.
Anyway, M25 now, motorway hell is just warming up. Only away for 1 day today which is good, because to be honest with you world - I don't have the energy.
