I Love My Daughter, But I Will Always Put My Marriage First

When you become a parent you inevitably have the feeling that your child is the most important thing in your life. You love them unconditionally, at least eventually, and you would do anything for them. Some people even say that their children are now the priority in their life. But for me it’s going to be a little bit different. As much as I love my daughter, I will always put my marriage first. My Marriage Will Always Come Ahead of My Children Before I carry on with any of this, I will say that my marriage will always come…

Dad Diaries #1 – Getting Back Into Writing a Weekly Blog

For those of you who have followed this blog for quite a while, you might remember I used to write a weekly blog. I very creatively called it ‘Isablog’. I stopped as I didn’t feel I always had enough time to write a decent post every single week. Well now it’s back. Although instead of it being called ‘Isablog’ I’m going with ‘Dad Diaries’. Unbearably sexy title, I know! What Is ‘Dad Diaries’ Going to be About? Well I’m glad you’re so interested.

Unfortunately I’m Not Always a Great Husband

Yesterday morning I got a little bit irritated with my wife, Rachel. She had the utter cheek to ask me to get up early with our daughter when I was already awake, so she could have an extra hour of sleep in bed! Which of course, is actually a pretty reasonable thing to request. But unfortunately I’m not always a great husband, and sometimes I’m a bit of a dick.

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 Didn’t Hate My Daughter, I…
