Alex Salmon: It's a Dad's Life

News: It’s a Dad’s life with Alex Salmon – April

8th May, 2018, Alex Salmon

I’ve been reliably informed by my fiancée and mother of my two children that wherever you look there are accounts of what it is like to be a mum.

So when I was asked to give an insight into my life and then let others read it, it filled me with a mixture of bemusement and sheer dread.

Would people want to hear my sleep-deprived ramblings and subsidiary to that, would I actually make any sense?

But I like throwing caution to the wind. So here goes.

My name is Alex Salmon, I’m 30 years old, I live in Lowestoft, and I’m a dad. Pure and simple.

I’m losing my hair by the second, I barely sleep and my days are spent trying to fathom out why children’s tights were ever invented, and other pressing issues.

The days of me going out till the early hours are long gone, I get splattered with food, deal with very unpleasant smells on what seems like an hourly basis and I would love to know why I end up resembling a drowned rat every single bath time.

All that said, my daughter, who is four, and my son, who is one, have completely changed my life. Every day there’s a moment that makes me stop and appreciate all I have, even when I have a Brussels sprout hurled at my head.

In short, I love fatherhood - it’s the best job in the world.

But if you are reading this boss, not as good as my job as a manager at accountants Stephenson Smart.

I’m based at Beacon Park in Gorleston and have been there since I qualified. I love my job, have some great clients and I look after everything from corporate to personal tax.

I guess working with numbers makes me well qualified to be a dad.

I’m very good at calculating the time it takes the kids to listen to what I say and then just completely ignore me.

Over the coming months my musings will continue - if I actually manage to keep awake….
