… And a bit of a disclaimer I guess.
I just want to start by saying that this website is going to make up an account of how life goes for me and my wife now that we’ve got our first child. It’s all going to be from my perspective, giving you an honest insight in to my thoughts on parenting and all sorts of other (mostly) related topics. This is not a guide on how to raise your child or an accurate depiction of how every pregnancy and the time thereafter will go. We all have our own experiences.
Keeping all that in mind, this blog won’t be for everybody! Whether that’s because its an account from the perspective of the dad, because of the language I use or my writing style. I’m writing this for myself and if it helps anyone else or keeps them entertained – each time it does my writing gets that much more purpose and I feel that much happier about doing it.
When I write, I often go on tangents… Usually they have nothing to do with the original topic, and most of the time they will circle back round to what I was talking about. I write as I think, and I don’t tend to proof read – I want to keep this as raw and honest as I can, however because of that, be warned… I love me some colorful language! If you ask me, the odd swear word here, there and everywhere in between makes life that little bit brighter.
Having said that, it’s not a trait I’ll be wanting to encourage with the kid… After all I’m not an animal… We’re civilized in these parts! To this day I have never sworn in front of either of my parents. I think I’ll have to keep them away from this little website!
So, you might want to know a bit about me, to put the site and our situation in to perspective… On the other hand, you might not give a shit about who I am or what I’m doing here, instead trying to figure out why you’re still reading this. But just in case you are still reading, there’s not a huge amount to tell.
I’m really just a normal bloke… I’m a bit fat, but not too much, I’m far too lazy to shave but also cant be arsed to keep on top of having a well kept beard, I’ve got tattoos (and plenty more planned), when I drink I’m partial to a bit of spiced rum and coke (especially Sailor Jerry, Morgan’s Black or Kraken), I like to think I’m a pretty good cook, I’m a metal head at heart with a soft spot for Kylie and I’ve got an unhealthy obsession with the Walking Dead, the Big Bang Theory and Bruce Campbell!
I think there’s a good chance that many of these things will rear their heads over the course of me writing for this blog, so hopefully they’re things which you can get your teeth in to as well.
