MAN ALIVE

These are the further adventures of a Man who became a Dad and who together with his wife and daughter embarked on a way of living which was not typical. As parents we decided we were going to raise our daughter equally, meaning we would both reduce working hours to half-time and each care for our daughter half the week each. Simple. 50/50 all the way. Well, maybe not so simple, because as a Man holding the baby half the week I found myself in a largely female world which was not used to male presence, and as a new Father I was not used to negotiating the culture and practicalities of being a new parent. What follows will be a series of events, anecdotes, laughs, sadnesses and quite tricky experiences and challenges I faced. How I managed and what I learned from those experiences, how it changed me and what I am still learning, I hope might be helpful to others.
