Suddenly We’re Celebrating Our Baby’s First Birthday

I think we’re both slightly in a state of disbelief. We’re somehow celebrating the fact that our baby has just had her first birthday! Having a One Year Old Of course, a first birthday was inevitably going to happen. But it still feels really weird that Isabelle is somehow now a one year old. Reflecting on the Past Year If I really wanted to, I could turn this into the worlds longest post. But I’m not going to go into every little detail of the past year. I’ve been running this blog since Isabelle was around less than four months…

I Didn’t Hate My Daughter – I Hated Myself

This has been a massive week for me on a personal level. If you’ve read this blog before you might have heard me say that I hated Isabelle when she was born. There are so many places that have that headline. I’m obviously not going to list them all. But for a long time I thought it to be true. And whilst recording a video to talk about the last few days, which saw my letter to Isabelle hit the media outlets, I realised something. I might have hated myself, and not my daughter.

I said a few months back that I was looking for a charity challenge for 2018. Well, I’ve chosen one. And it’s the Wye Valley Challenge with Action Challenge” Before I start, I will say that I occasionally like doing something silly for the mere fun of it. I once walked 100,000 steps for no reason other than I wanted to get the Olympian Badge on Fitbit. I then did a skydive and that was purely because it was on my bucket list. Well this time I’m dipping back into the walking side of the challenges and doing the longest…

Thinking About My Daughters Digital Footprint

When I started this blog, I didn’t really think about my daughter’s digital footprint. Maybe it was because I didn’t expect that I would actually keep blogging, or perhaps it just wasn’t on my mind. But since I’m very much looking at making this a permanent thing, and since it is growing, I thought it would be best that I thought about what this blog might mean for her, and more importantly, her unconsented digital footprint. What Is a Digital Footprint? As you can probably guess, I post photos of my daughter online. Lots in fact. Every time I do…
