Today a TV crew came to my house to do a shoot for a story on daddy bloggers and on our blog tacklenappy.com for the Project. It was amazing that we were approached to be on the show and even more amazing that we managed to survive the filming without a tantrum from Kid X.
Another footy season has begun and for us Melbourne supporters, another long year lies ahead with very little chance of any movement up the ladder. However tonight’s post is not about my lament at being stuck as dees man, it’s about how I watch footy has changed for good since becoming a parent.
I am suffering from PBCS – Post blog conference syndrome.
Today it’s bloody hot and uncomfortable. The kids are whinging, the parents are whinging, the pets are whinging, and in fact everyone is. So what does a family of whingers do for entertainment? Go out to a massive public event and cook in the hot sun, of course. This should give us enough whinging ammo to last until the end of this March record breaking hot spell.
Not since Harold and Kumar decided to venture to White Castle has there been a more hastily put together attempt to get somewhere. The boys from Tacklenappy.com are trying to get from Melbourne to the Digital Parents Conference 2013 in Sydney on March 20-21. It's the conference for us as we are digital parents (perfect fit hey) and we are getting new business cards and want to personally deliver these to parent bloggers and where better to do so than at this event.
Here’s the tough bit, we don’t have tickets, accommodation, transport or money but apart from that we are set.
