Separation Anxiety – Why Is Our Toddler Suddenly a Koala Bearby

As the dad to a breastfed baby I’m pretty used to being the least favourite parent. I’ll admit that at times it’s bothered me and I haven’t liked the fact our daughter VERY CLEARLY prefers my wife. But it is what it is. Then all of a sudden we’ve entered the wonderful world of bastard separation anxiety! Now I’m the walking physical form of Satan and our toddler is a koala bear. Or koala bearby. See what I did there? Like a baby, but a koala? I’m totally making koala bearby a thing by the end of this post. Separation…

How My Social Insecurities Affects My Ability to Make Friends

Truth be told, I suck at making friends. So much so that I wouldn’t really class myself as a person who has any friends. LIKE AT ALL. I didn’t even have a best man at my wedding because there was literally no one I could ask without sounding like a total weirdo. Scratch that, it sounds much better if I just say “I was marrying my best friend.” Yep. That works. Either way, I have a lot of social insecurities that does a lovely job of hindering me from making actual friends. So let’s talk about me and my wonderful…

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that our daughter prefers her mum to her dad. To be honest, it’s not even close. I know that I am the least preferred parent. And the vast majority of the time I have been totally fine with it. But I’ll be honest and admit that lately it’s started to get to me. Being the Least Preferred Parent – Sometimes it Sucks! I suppose I should start this off by saying that a huge part of the reason I’m the least preferred parent is because my wife still breastfeeds. When you’re the…

Mental Health Update – A Few Months into Being on Antidepressants

I’ve now been on the antidepressant fluoxetine for over two months, and I thought I’d ramble away for a little bit about how I’ve been doing since starting back on antidepressants. Mental Health Update: A Few Months into Being on Antidepressants This isn’t my first time around on antidepressants. I could bore you with my 3 year history of being on and off with taking antidepressants – and truth be told I’ve just deleted 400 words that may as well be titled “The History of Ross and Antidepressants” – but I want to keep this about what’s going on now.…

8 Months In and We’re Still Not Pregnant

Well we’ve steadily been plugging away – pun fully intended – for the best part of 8 months now, and as of this writing there has been no sign of a positive pregnancy test. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t feel like we’ve been trying for that long. We’ve basically been contraception free for 8 months. So that kinda counts. But with Rachel still breastfeeding, she’s hardly appeared the most “fertile.” So I thought I’d do what I do best, and come on here and ramble away (#RossRambles) for roughly 1000 words about this whole “trying to get pregnant” thing.…
