well, last night was the last of the dads2b groups cole has been going to, dealing with post-natal depression (in both men and women), why babies might cry and ways of dealing with crying babies. for example, did you know that a babies’ cry is biologically designed to raise your adrenalin levels to provoke a response? anyway, the group has been fantastic and any expectant fathers out there, i would definitely find out if a similar thing is going on in your area.

hoping to have a reunion after all the people in the group have had their children to exchange their experiences and to see how useful these past few weeks have been. personally, it has just been great (and very reassuring) to meet with other men in the same situation going through exactly the same doubts, fears (and, sometimes, ignorance).

for those that are interested/curious, the mysterious surprise on sunday was a trip into edinburgh to see hibs v celtic. not the best result (celtic won 2-1), but a game that had everything – goals, disallowed goals, offsides, penalties, a sending off and pizza and sauce! thanks again ryan for a grand day out!
