Whose job is the worst job in the world?

What is the worst job as a parent, its obvious isn’t it. It’s looking after a sick baby/toddler. Apart from the abundance of spew and poo, your heart melts as your child transforms from an energetic (and sometimes over-excitable) little person to a miserable cranky sad version.

An Open Letter To A New Dad

It's one of those moments that you remember forever, when you tell your family and friends that you're expecting a baby. I still remember the warm and genuine embraces I received from my mum, dad and sister. I recall visiting friends with the sole purpose of breaking our news and thinking to myself 'they know exactly why we're here'...and of course, they acted surprised even though they weren't. Recently one of my dear friends and his partner broke the news that they are expecting their first baby and I can't tell you how happy Quigs and I are to hear the news. There's so much we want to tell them but I don't want to bore them shitless with war stories about my experiences as a father. Instead I decided to write my great mate a letter, one that he can refer back to when the time is right, and you never know, perhaps he'll write me a letter in twenty years time saying 'you were right'...actually, he's more likely to write a letter in twenty years time telling me how I could done the job better myself. But that would be OK, that's how he is and we love him for it.

Parent Spaceship Log 142332

I have been stuck on this parenting spaceship for over 3 years now. We were on course but in the last 10 months our ship has lost our way and communication with the mothership is getting harder and harder. We are becoming more and more isolated and more and more desperate to be rescued.

For most of us the Sunday before mother’s day is just another day, a day when dads and some mums might actually take our kids out to get the mother’s day present for next Sunday. There are some families that this day is so very important to, for other reasons.
