Parental Ponderings

Are you a single parent?A dual parent? A new parent wondering “what kind of new hell is this”? Fear not, for you are not alone. In this blog I will be making weekly posts with different stories taken from the last twenty years of my half-arsed parenting so that you, as a full-arsed parent/s, can feel better about yourselves by comparison.

Soon we shall depart for our torrid and mystical journey through the hazy and distant past which has been my experience of raising three young’ns, kids, mud magnets, tax deductions or whatever else you’d like to call them, but first some disclaimers.

All events contained herein and forthwith are based on real events. Real events which I may have embellished, stretched the truth of and gilded the occasional lilly. This means that as horrific as some of these events may sound, there is no need to get the Department of Child Services involved – what they don’t know can’t hurt me and I’d like it to stay that way. The events may be real, but the names have been changed to protect those still undergoing psychological treatment.
