Now I am about 4 months into being a father and I think I am enjoying it. Baby Grumble is quite a happy child and we are sleeping ok. Well I don’t get up when she cries because I don’t hear her and because I work late in to the evenings and go to bed about 2am I am in a proper good deep sleep by the time the little bundle of joy wakes up.
There has not been much that has changed since baby grumble was pulled from the dark depths of Mrs Grumbles insides but there is one small thing that I am missing desperately and I mean I am desperate for it to be here just a few more times.
Eating In Peace
This may sound like something really silly and small but eating a meal at the table with Mrs Grumble in peace and quiet was one of the few things I enjoyed and since Baby Grumble has been here they have not happened.
Its like Baby Grumble knows when we are about to sit down to eat and then decides to turn into this horrible screaming bundle of snot and noise and all I want to do is eat and hear nothing but the sound of my cutlery scraping and chinking on the plate and the whines and moans across the table from Mrs Grumble.
It sounds like a bad thing to say but for 10 minutes of the day I would like baby grumble to shut up and let us have our peace but I think the moment I find out Mrs Grumble was pregnant I should have known that life was going to be different but I never know I would miss meal times so much.
Anyway I hope you are enjoying my journey into fatherhood and I hope you are relating to some of the things I am talking about.
