I fear I'm losing my son

I fear I'm losing my son, I just don't seem to be able to connect with him anymore. We constantly bicker and I am constantly telling him off. He is five years old. I love him so much and I hate that I am always telling him off. Maybe I'm too strict but then he answers back and it just makes things worse.

PND in Dads

Post natal depression (PND) is more likely to affect parents in the first year of a babies life. I never knew that PND could affect dads but after reading a couple of posts on Twitter recently I did a quick bit of research.

There is no single answer as to why people experience PND but can be a number of factors due to the emotional and stressful event of having a child.

The 7 year Itch

The seven-year itch is a psychological term that suggests that happiness in relationships declines after around seven years of marriage.

Kerry and I celebrated seven years of marriage this week. Will the seven-year itch rear its ugly head for us?
Hell no!
Here are seven reasons why the seven-year itch won't happen for me (I can't say it won't happen for her though)

15 things I've learnt about my son

Our children are our lives, they depend on us for everything. We love them unconditionally, even when they're being twats. We spend an enormous amount of time with. How much do we really know about them? Do we ever ask them what they like?

Well I did, I know my son. I know what he likes doing and what he doesn't, but do I know the detail, the everyday stuff that you might not think, such as his favourite colour etc? I asked him 15 questions and he duly answered. You can see his responses below...

Instagram experiment

In this next post of my #BlogLife series, I wanted to try out an Instagram experiment. This experiment was to try and gain more followers and what was the most effective way of doing this.

Odeon cinema and Lego Batman Review

This Sunday I was blessed with a day off from work. Joseph and I both love Lego and we both love Batman so what could be better than going to see the Lego Batman movie at the cinema? Nothing that's right.

So, Sunday morning we got up, had our breakfast got ready and then realised we still had two hours to go before the film started. Damn kids getting up early.

How Twitter can help your blog

Social media plays a big part in the blogging world and Twitter is right up there with the best social media format. It can be a bit daunting though when you first create an account. Here I will try and explain how I use twitter and how I got 2900 followers in 7 months.

In this #BlogLife series, I have already written a post on social media and apps/websites I use to help with blogging. One of the apps that helps me with Twitter is Crowdfire. You can read about that in the apps I use post.
