It’s Tough being a Daddy! Cartoons | Jokes & other Funny Stuff | My Life 23 SEP 2011

Chantelle presented me with this Pajama Diaries cartoon from the paper yesterday, with a broad smile on her face. I took one look and enjoyed an instant giggle. This particular conversation has happened more than once in this household already – more often than not, Daddy just has that magic touch…

…much to the chagrin of Mommy of course! :)

Truly, it is tough being a Dad. You never know just how much you need to do right and how much you need to get hopelessly wrong! :P

Jessica Mimicking Mommy Jessica 14 JUN 2011

It’s too cute for words. Not only has our little dribble monster become to big for her bath booster chair that she now gets to sit on her own in the baby bath and happily splash water everywhere, she’s also taken to mimicking Mommy – with hilarious results (and spittle) flying out all over the place! :)

And just in case you want to see what I mean when I referred to our new bath regime, here’s the pics to prove it!

The Coming Age of Aunties and Uncles My Life 14 MAY 2010

So for any of you who have not yet been informed (telephone account is going to be high this month!), Chantelle and I are delighted to announce that we are indeed four weeks pregnant, with the blood test having confirmed all this on Wednesday 13 May 2010.

(Wow, nice turnaround time PathCare!)

As I’ve mentioned before, we literally started trying for a child a month ago, meaning that no matter what happens from now henceforth, at least Chantelle and I now know that conceiving is simply no hassle for awesome people such as ourselves, which of course bodes well when we start planning for the second (and last) addition to our family later on in life – hey, got to get this first one out of the way first – unless it’s twins of course – which I’m rooting for by the way! :P)

Even better news than us being pregnant is that so far everyone is proving to be very supportive, from work to family and friends, which is a great relief for us. As Chantelle’s boss Louise says, “the timing couldn’t be any worse (the guest house’s busiest period is in January), but never mind that, we’re so happy for you!”.

Of course, with a whole heap of our friends circle being currently pregnant or having just given birth, it really is going to be a great time all around and something that I’m sure is going to knit our little circles that much tighter in the long run.

So in short, I’m happy. Very, very happy.

(Overjoyed I would go as far as saying. Even chuffed with myself if I must.)

And as far as Chantelle feels about the whole matter, well you guys can guess how she’s doing (but it won’t be a very hard guess, I assure you.)

So in eight months time, Chantelle will no longer have to borrow baby Zandea to feel like a mother! :)

Besides, now she really DOES have a legitimate reason to boss me around! ;)
