I’m Robert, a husband to Sherrianne, a son to my parents, a brother to my siblings, a nephew to few, a grandson to a few, an uncle to many, a friend to many (I’m sure you get the picture by now) but most exciting and rewarding of all……a Dad to J and R!
There is honestly nothing better. I know, it’s a cliché in many respects BUT being a Dad truly is the best feeling in the world.
I decided to start this blog to document all the things that go on with these crazy sons of mine. And also to make sense of it all. Things move so quickly when children are growing up and we all make decisions based on our current circumstances, but often, because it does all go so quickly we don’t learn from it. We stumble through trying to make sense of things as we go and trying to guess what the best way to deal with things is. So I suppose this is my way, selfishly, to understand what on earth is going on.
I have the added joy and complexity (!) of being a Christian. How does God want me to live? How does God want me/us to raise the boys? How does God want me to operate within my family? All questions that I grasp at times, but also really struggle to juggle (like what i did there?) at times.
So I suppose what I’m trying to say is, I document random selections from my thoughts, feelings, conversations and adventures with the main man and occasionally make you smile. While I’m doing all of that, I’ll hopefully help a few other Dads/mums/parents along the way. Although I am by no means a parental expert…… I’m a novice.
