I’ve been a bit quiet recently. But I’ve had my hands full. Sometimes both of them. At least for most of the time I’m not at work.
It’s a daunting thing having two babies that can cry at the same time and who currently have absolutely no regard for anything apart from getting exactly what they want. But it’s wonderful and life-altering in a good way too. Of course it is.
I’ve been chatting to a couple of wise old men about the ‘baby blogging’ and they’ve convinced me that it’s not the best idea in the world. At first I thought they were just being grumpy old farts. But then they made me realise that at some point I’m going to have to stop. And I thought about it. And they’re right. And I might as well end it now, before I’m in too deep. Crackunit is too public, it’s too open and it’s not really fair on the girls.
I think the realisation that I had to stop came when I almost posted an ‘Identical or Not’ poll on Twitter. I caught myself going one step too far. Using them as link fodder. I felt like a terrible dad.
As I said before we had lots of lovely people write amazing supportive messages as a result of earlier posts, which has been great and helped us get through the tougher times. Thank you all again, for everything.
Of course I’m going to use the internet to post pictures of them and stuff like that, but I’m going to keep them separate from this blog, and I’m going keep it for friends and family and the kinds of people who should see pictures of your children. If you are a friend or family and want to be included on my family-spam drop me a line.
And in a few months when the girls start blogging I’ll add them to my blogroll if they ask nicely.
Bye bye say the girls…
