Being a parent is challenge, but is fun too

My wife and I have two children.  James is just over 3, and Florence will be 1 soon.

Being a parent is fun – but it is hard and challenging too.

This term I am spending about 1/3 of my working time looking after them both – and this has been great fun, and great to be able to spend time with them, take them to toddler groups, do the pre-school / childminder drop off / pick up etc., and be truely involved in their lives.  It has made us closer.

Next term they will spend a little more time at pre-school and the child minder, but I will still be spending time with them during the week – although not as much as a 1/3 of my time.
