"it makes her angry that those that can don't"
Sensible and undoubtedly wonderful woman.. The best advice I was given was do it, because if you don't, you'll be 40 odd and be wondering why you didn't.
Thanks she is indeed a wonderful woman.
I wouldn't have married her otherwise
she gets so pissed off with people saying "oh its a bit cold/wet/hot to go for a walk when its the one thing she loved doing whatever the weather and now her legs just won't work it breaks my heart to see he look at the hills as we drive past knowing she will never get out on them again
Really time to grow the **** up sunshine...
my daughter is seventeen months now and between having a job and looking after her theres not much "me time" left over. I'm sure there are dads with lots of other interests but I doubt they're particularly good Daddys.
enjoy the time you have left your life as you know it is over once the sprog arrives. your new life will be rewarding and challenging and probably leave you no time to fanny about bird watching.... enjoy.
Although I understand what your pushing at, I'm not sure I totally agree!
I know 2 people quite well who have children that have said their hobby's & fatherhood have made them better husbands. 1 has triplets & frequents here, he has still continued riding/running/skiing and his wife has also carried on her sporting pursuits. His take on it is time management & I agree from other experiance.
My Brother in Law is also a keen Runner & birdwatcher with 2 children now aged 14 & 11 and at no time did him or his wife (county level netball & swimming) give up on any pursuits. Both of their children were included in their activity's and have individually found their own love of sport & nature.
