I plan to add a page to this blog that is just about mums and dads; because we are not just mums and dads — we are couples, and individuals, too. We have working lives, ambitions and aspirations. We may have several children, elderly parents, or other responsibilities and commitments. We have interests and needs of our own. We still have relationships and (I’d better whisper this) sex drives. What we may lack though is time, energy and babysitters.
I don’t claim to have the answers to juggling all of this whilst maintaining your identity and relationships. What I plan to do is to discuss some of the challenges that Tim and I have faced (and still face), and how we try to meet them, in the hope that it will ring a bell wit others in a similar situation.
