I read with interest that Drew Petrie is poised to play footy instead of attend the birth of his second child. We know it’s about personal choice but any sports person thinking of playing on instead of attending the birth, I think you’re making a big mistake.
On Tuesday I took a day off to take Kid X to the Playschool concert at the Ivanhoe Town Hall. It lead to one of those rare parenting moments that help you understand why you put up with all the crying, screaming, being told to go to work and being ignored when you come home after a stressful day at work.
Let’s get something straight from the beginning of this article, Kid X barracks for Melbourne Footy Club. Yep, that’s right- Melbourne, the dees, the old red and blue. She does not barrack for Buddy, the tigers or the pies.
One of the most fun things I do is read kid X a book before putting her to bed.
