SINGLE FATHERHOOD!

Boy's night out!
Ok...so I am forced to become a good father...often a good thing comes out of bad...


The fact that a trigger happy shrink, Dr. Roberts, who freaks out and decides to commit my post natally depressed wife without any regards to the trauma to her family??


My wife freaks out also just thinking that she'll have a night of r and r...(the way the shrink puts it...) she goes for a ride with the doctor to the ER room with no clue that she would be an involuntary patient committed to a coastal loony bin!!!





So Daddy and son just try to make the best of it...






I have just had some very serious intensive training into the domestic engineering of being a parent to a growing baby!! Thankyou, to my cousins, Jane and Louise to help me with the shopping and how to get a schedule going, how to wash, how to organize the house ,






just in case one of the N ozzie SSocial workers threatens to take our Colin to a foster home!

We have to show them that we are organized and overcoming our issues...Like a game of chess we have to become disciplined and not yell at each other...It is a science of discipline and just inner grit and intestinal fortitude!!






"Like a candle used to light another candle, the connection with spirit that results when one person joins hands with another is greater than if each person were to stand alone. People who take part in a circle find that their power increases exponentially while with the group. Like a drop of water rippling on the surface of a pond, the waves of energy produced in a circle radiate outward in circular motion. While one person may act like a single beacon that emanates light, a circle of people is like a satellite dish that sends out energy. There is power in numbers, and when the commitment is made by many to face one another, clasp hands, and focus on one intention, their circle emanates ripples of energy that can change the world. " from the Daily OM




My extended family and our new Aussie Godmother, Annette,came through!
She has been wonderful helping and helping cousins, Jane and Sally, get our family through this...It was emotionally traumatic putting your untidy habitat on the beach for full exposure to the family....I know, I know,, any ex's out there will be just shaking their heads wondering if I will ever get it together...

I swear my paradise abode is far cleaner than the others...(or maybe I just haven't spent long enough for the cobwebs and clutter to multiply like roaches...is that too reaslistic a metaphor???)






One good thing is that this country is all about helping our mates!!!



Losers who keep getting back up are heroes in Aussie folklore...
ie...


The unofficial national anthem, "Waltzing Matilida!"



the swagman = a homeless bum walking from one billabong and Koolibah tree to the next!
Ned Kelly= outlaw hero who kinda was a Robin Hood until he was finally shot dead..

I become teary eyed thinking of how our new friend helped us out so much...totally selflessly! We will ask her to be our godmother and take her and her husband out to dinner at the surf club!
