However, while this may be stretching the definition of 'regular blogger' a bit far, I am pleased to say that Clued Up Dads is back in action and I can henceforth promise that posts will be at least seasonal, if not daily!
'So where have you been?' I hear you call (or at least vaguely murmur).
Well, when last we met Baby B was but a predominantly immobile seven-month old, happy to stay in one place and amuse himself with a sock. Today, however, he is toddling precariously around the lounge, smashing the telly remote control against the wall, attempting to escape our clutches at every opportunity, eating American-size portions of food and getting through clothes faster than Lady Gaga.
Which gives you a slight clue as to why my dedication to CUD may have wavered slightly over the last eight months.
The time has, however, been utterly magical and although I may moan with increasing regularity today, I wouldn't have changed any of it for the world (frequency of soiled nappies aside).
'So, why I are you back?' I hear myself call, for the sake of a narrative tool.
Well, this July my wife and I will be starting all over again as Baby B2 (The Sequel) is due to join our ever manic household, and I thought I'd share the journey from hereon in with you all once again.
Are we prepared? Absolutely not. Do we know what to expect? Only the prospect of eternal tiredness.
One thing's for certain though, it's going to be an adventure!
Right then, where's that TV remote?
