"Wes we're going out to celebrate and it's my choice. So do you want to go the place we can throw peanuts on the floor or the place with the little iPads we can both play our own games" The joys of parenting 😂 #theychosechilis #screentimeoverload

Sick kid, and sick mom so we are watching a show in bed so mom can just lay down. Rough week of solo parenting. Single parents amaze me. #screentimeoverload #survivalmode

I see dirty feet and hands as the sign of a great summer day for a child these days. Off the screens and into the world.

Some where along our journey here in France there came a tipping point. I can't quite locate when the balance swayed but looking back we saw a change in our mood and stress levels were becoming noticeable. We found that the cause was money, we'd been so keen to 'make it work', I think we'd tried hard to ignore the issue. However, like a good old thunderstorm rolling in and clearing out the cobwebs, an honest sit down and a chat over a cup of tea revealed our need to acknowledge and deal with a deficit in our annual finances. So as the fresh air blew in from the mountains, so did a big dose of reality, inspiring some energy and thought.

Unfortunately, for us Family Unplugged is never going to pay our bills anytime soon so it was up to me to look for additional income elsewhere to bolster my wife's earnings.

Until now I had been a stay at home dad and whilst I can humbly sit here now and admit, it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life, (and I've been a soldier and a police officer!), I was extremely naive to believe I could just step into my wife's incredibly, talented, patient, loving, empathic, intelligent, intuitive, organised and forward-thinking shoes and not fall short.

The up side of this however is the close maternal-like bond I have formed with our youngest son, 'the Last One', which I missed with our other three children. As a man, and a father to four children, you might be surprised to hear me say that this bond is unlike anything I've ever experienced thus far on my journey into fatherhood. Everyday is new as a parent and that's what is so beautifully challenging, surreal, tough and unexpected about bringing up children. I would like to say to all fathers, (and mothers), who are in large part, absent through work, day-to-day, that I have experienced a profound sense of joy and contentment* from being able to spend time caring for my children and I wouldn't have changed it for anything. It has been a gift. (*I won't lie, there were many times when it went wrong too!) Photo Credit: The Glass Passport

As the UK basked in tropical temperatures these last few weeks, as have we on the French Riviera. The hot thick humidity slowed us down to an obligatory daily crawl, (we now understand the meaning of a true siesta). Life became a series of completing essential activities coupled with stillness and simple life sustaining meals. Everyday was a small struggle, uncomfortable and smothering, no relief from the heat, a build up of pressure. Until yesterday that is. Yesterday saw a storm roll over the mountains behind us, over our heads, and off towards Italy. The thunder brought amusement and shrieks of terror from our children. While we the parents enjoyed the patter of rain through the trees and let the cool air envelope us. With fresh winds, a tinkle of rain and much cooler temperatures. Life as we British knew it resumed, but not for long, summer is coming.

We are so British still when it comes to the weather. We criticise the cost of our electric heaters in the winter and then when it comes to the saving of electricity due to the lack of air conditioning in our house we also find this a source of discontent. We have been here less than a year though and we should allow our Britishness in some respects, to disappear in a dignified way.
