Going Back To Work

Posted by James | Posted in First Few Weeks, My Timeline | Posted on 12-11-2012

I love my job. I’m lucky enough to get paid for a job I enjoy, and I don’t take for granted the fact that I do not dread Monday mornings. That said, I’m gutted to have to go back to work today.

First day back from paternity leave has been tough. This morning I honestly had a lump in my throat as I left my wife and 2 week old son in bed while I went to work. But, I suppose someone has to pay for the nappies, clothes, toys and everything else that a baby needs.

Welome to 1st Time Daddy

Posted by James | Posted in General | Posted on 14-02-2012

This site is dedicated to all the first time daddys out there!

I became a dad for the first time in October 2012, and I can honestly say it’s been the best thing I’ve ever done. There’s been tears, sleepless, and a few lost hairs along the way, but it’s all been worth it.

I started this website to share my own experiences of becoming a dad, from the pregnancy, birth, first few weeks, everything I have come across or learnt that might help others.

I hope you enjoy my little website, and I welcome any feedback or comments to my email address – [email protected]
