Hello and welcome to my blog The Full Time Parent. I am a parent myself with my gorgeous children an 11 year old son and a 9 year old daughter that I adore to pieces. I say I have children but really only my son is my child, my daughter is actually my niece but her mum works from 7am to 6pm every day so her daughter is my responsibility before and after school. I am a single dad with my son and my sister is a single mother with her daughter so we are like parents towards our children. We live 5 houses apart so we normally eat together as a family and we function like a family. Both of our children do have contact with their other parent but rarely see them. As a family we are not rich but equally we aren’t poor. We are bringing in enough money to own both our houses, put food on the table, pay bills and taxes and still afford a treat for our children. Together our family is strong and the five houses between us will never keep us apart. You could say my children are spoilt but I see it as giving them more opportunities in the best years of their life.
Now to the stuff about the blog. If you are a parent or want to be you can use this blog as a survival guide, handbook, or a laugh at how my family is so unorganised( I hope I’m not the only family out there that is unorganised). I hope to post on this blog at least twice a week but being a parent obviously throws up obstacles so some weeks there may be 3 posts and some weeks none but we’ll see how it goes. I would love to hear your feedback on how you would do things differently, opinions on things and general stuff. If I see a comment I really like I will paste it into my next blog and put a link to your blog.
So as a start to this strong future, give me a like, comment and follow this so you can read the daily life of a parent with children.
-Stay strong and stay wise-
