The delivery

So, the boy is more than one-month old by now, and it has been quite a journey, from the beginning. As everything, even his birth was different and contrary to the planned, he’s doing everything differently from the girls.

It started as a normal birth but then the doctors decided that it was time for a C-section – and I was terrified. I hadn’t been used to that kind of things, the girls arrived exactly on the suggested time without any complication, easily, really. And of course, the doctor said three times that

“there’s no need to worry, at all”

and that made me angry, really. Frightened, rather.

What else can you do?

I have been thinking of this for ages – how can I do something for the world, for humanity, for my family – something that matters? And then I just realized, there is one easy-to-do thing: if I learn a lot, I show a good example for my children, that makes them a better people and that may help the world a little bit. And if I know a lot about things, it is gonna be even easier to raise the children.

And besides, learning is one of the best things in the world. I know it sounds like something stupid and it is quite obvious, but I still believe in it. If I’m lucky, I have something like 20-30 years to learn as much as I can and do as much as I can.

End of the nine-month

According to the first date by the doctors, our third child is due to arrive on the 15th of July, so, as I am writing this post on the 14th, we have only one day until the prediction. I know that most of the children don’t arrive on the correct date they are said to, but the first two, the girls, arrived exactly when they had to.

So, you could think our children are very orderly – and they are, right until they are born.

But that is how they should be, shouldn’t they?

Probably my wife is the one who’s the most eager to get it over with, and she has some reasons, I can see that. The boy and her tummy are big, I guess everything is uncomfortable by now, sleeping on this side, sleeping on the other side, sitting, half-sitting, walking or standing, it doesn’t matter, it is not good – although she has been enjoying every little bit of her pregnancy, as she had always done.

Being a father-of-two

I don’t think it was much different from the new feeling, but the knowledge that I would have three kids somehow did transform me. It is not that I had been a bad dad or anything like that – although I must admit I hadn’t been the best of the dads. So far.

I think the responsibility hit me in the head, right on my forehead.

I just somehow felt that I would need to do more in terms of connections, in terms of time spent with the girls, in terms of educating them, and most importantly, in terms of bringing them up to this world.

And that quietly changed everything.

Here we go again

We are not really an “eat-together” type of family. We have given it a go a couple of times over the years, but somehow it has always gone wrong. Well, gone wrong is not the best way to describe it, there’s been nothing wrong, it has just stopped somehow, always.

But we did like it when we did have dinners together.

There is only one rule: everyone at the table has to tell what was good and wrong in her or his day.

And now that we are kind of settled in the flat, Dóri’s at home before the third child is born, we’ve decided that we need this again. Read Full Article

Burn the bridges

So, I have written something like 4 to 7 different blog in my lifetime, but the time has come now, to erase all that from my history and start a new one where I can publish all my stuff in one place. And this was a very good time to do that because now I can connect it to my own and my families development.
My personal and professional development and the families on the front of… well, family front.
We are expecting our third child in something like a month, and this is the time when we can do whatever the best is for the whole family.
We feel like we are facing big challenges, really big challenges in terms of our future, more importantly, our children’s future, so we need to move and we need to make decisions. But the very best thing is that we are all in this together, wife, husband, girls, and probably the soon-to-be-born boy, too.
