Our Life in Photos: Rounding Up The Month of March

We’re back with another month in photos roundup! As you might be able to guess, this is going to be five photos that reflect on the month of March. No messing. Let’s go. “Seriously dad, it’s cold!” You might have noticed, but March saw the UK get hit by the Beast from the East. And there was no chance I was going to miss the opportunity to take a decent picture of Isabelle enjoying the snow. I’m not always the best at reading Isabelle’s facial expression, but I’m going to guess this one says “OMG this is the best day…

Artificial Feeding: Offensive Term or Are People Easily Offended?

In an article posted by the BBC, a hospital has been criticised for using the term artificial feeding in regards to how people might want to feed their baby after the birth. Not only did they refer to feeding a baby formula milk as artificial feeding, but they also used the term ‘artificial milk’ several times throughout the letter. If you want to see the letter in full, then here it is: So I’m here to ask two simple things. Is it wrong to criticise the term artificial feeding?

Teething Sometimes Turns Me Into a Bad Dad

Last night I really didn’t like my daughter. She was a teething, screaming mess and instead of looking at her with concern and sympathy, I just thought she was a dick. Basically, I wasn’t the best dad I could’ve been. In all honesty, I was a pretty bad dad. Don’t get me wrong, I know I’m not that much of a bad dad. The vast majority of the time I’m really good with Isabelle. But like most people, I do have my weaknesses. Right now, that’s when she’s crying excessively. And excessive crying comes hand in hand with teething. Teething Sometimes…

What are the Concerns About Home Education?

Don’t get me wrong, and excuse the phrasing, but I love jumping balls deep into stuff. Once I like the idea of something, and I want to do it, I bloody go for it. Rachel once wanted to open a wedding dress shop, so I ran with that. Ultimately it didn’t pan out. But I don’t want to do the same with this. Home education is something we have to put a lot of thought into. And luckily for us, we have time. So I’ve already done a post about what I love, now it’s time for one about my…

#MySundayPhoto – Building a Future Library

This isn’t the first time I’ve left a post to the last minute. Actually the very first #MySundayPhoto that I did was all done on the day. And that’s what this one is. This photo was literally taken this morning. And my plan was to write this as Isabelle napped. Instead I’m writing this one handed with her in my left. She’s teething like crazy and still isn’t sleeping. Not that I mind, but she really could do with drifting off whilst I write this up. We’ll see how it goes. I guess I’ve taken this picture this week as…
