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…

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…

Thinking About Home Education – The Positives

Recently I’ve really started to think more about the idea of home education. And I mean really think about it. I know it’s something that I want to look more into because I can feel myself getting excited by the prospect of doing it.

To have the freedom to pursue what she wants to become without the suffocating hold school sometimes has. What I’m going to do here is merely list…

12 Weeks Paternity to Address the Gender Pay Gap?

On the back of MPs calling for 12 weeks paternity leave, the Guardian have gone with the idea that it will help address the gender pay gap. Whilst I’m all up for having 12 weeks paternity, my question here is quite simple: What Does The ‘Gender Pay Gap’ Have to do With This? I’ll be honest. I would’ve loved having 12 weeks paternity leave when Isabelle was born. In total, I had six weeks off. But four of those weeks were spent on the sick due to postnatal depression. So that doesn’t exactly count. But bringing it in because it’ll help…

Avoiding Negative Association With a Baby

The other day Ross decided to shave his hair off. Ok, so it’s not that dramatic. It’s not as though he had hair down his back. And he only went with a number three all over, so he’s not bald. But to Isabelle, it was a huge difference. I think it’s safe to say she didn’t like it. But luckily Ross knew enough about avoiding a negative association by letting Isabelle come to him in her own time. Here he is with his new hair: Isabelle spends time with Ross everyday. Obviously. Yet something so simple as a haircut had…
