In order to maintain my sanity I filled my life with projects. Projects gave my life a meaning beyond looking after Small and the house. They were something with a defined goal that I could aim at. They were a way of dragging some feeling of achievement back into my life; some way of proving to myself that I was still capable of doing something. Providing the project went well.
- Making things.
During my internship (internment?) every room in the house has been decorated at least once. The garage has been converted into an office and a utility room. The garden has been completely remodelled. Beds have been constructed, one in the shape of a train and another as a caterpillar and I have written this book, some cycling books and some children’s novels. Thus I try to maintain my self-confidence and my sanity (although, after reading this book, you may feel the latter is a forlorn hope rather than a reality).
Not so much a parenting guide full of advice, more the reality of parenting kids and being a house husband and father, written by a stay at home dad to three children.
