Dad Blog Posts of the Week – 6th April 2018

It has been a couple of weeks since I’ve been able to write a summary like this as we have been on holiday! Our first holiday with N! Clearly I’m going to release a post all about that so N can remember it when he is older (well, when I say ‘remember’ I mean ‘learn about’ since he was 10 weeks old!). Still, I’ve kept my eyes open to what others have written and here’s some posts that have caught my eye.

I’ve been reading blog posts on this blog for a while now and I’ve subscribed, so when I read the title of this piece it very much made me take a step back from what I was doing. Sadly he has had a stroke. It really makes you think that it can affect anyone at any time, and it makes you consider your own lifestyle and gives you a wake up call.

I’m reading a book to N every night now. In part this is because I enjoy it, but also because we want N to get used to a bedtime routine for the future. As such, I loved the idea that this Dad and his family came up with, to try and recreate a book called ‘Maisie Goes To London’. This is great and I’d love to do this in the future with N.

Kids will be kids, and babies will be babies, and both love some random stuff that is generally free and about to go in the trash, frequently boxes it seems (a bit like Rocky our cat). I look forward to N starting to interact with items a bit more and seeing what he takes an interest it. This is a post about his eight month old son and what he likes to grab and look at, such as baby wipes and light fixtures.

With the new GDPR regulations coming into force in May, data privacy and online privacy in general is very much on my mind at the moment. As such, this post caught my attention as it’s something I and Clare have considered many times with regard to this blog and the data privacy of N. As such I’m careful what I write. Todays social media however is so common it’s hard to avoid and something teenagers really need to be very conscious of. What goes online stays online so I’ll be teaching N all about that when he’s older.

I do enjoy a good poem. I’ve written a couple (one called An Ode To Sleep and another on Mother’s Day to I Love My Mummy) and I enjoy reading them and seeing the creative side of other bloggers. This is a great poem all about being a Dad and what it means. It doesn’t all quite apply to me yet as N is so young but I’m very much looking forward to experiencing it all!
