Like an Elephant on My Chest: The Enduring Grief of Miscarriage

(Trigger warning: Miscarriage/babyloss) My daughter's been asking to go to the Science Centre for ages. We took the kids once, but didn't get to see everything, and we've been meaning to go back ever since. So, we decided to wrap up our amazing summer with a visit there on the last Friday of the break. It was so fun. Both kids are at great ages for enjoying the wonders of the place. There's so much to do, so many things to learn. We were having a truly wonderful day together. ...more

A Dad's Perspective on Miscarriage

I get asked quite often why there is a big age gap between kids 2 and 3. There is a 5 and a half year’s difference and people seem to be curious as to why we began our journey through babyhood once again. When I’m asked, I usually smile and say simply, “timing was right.” I don’t mind the question and it is simply a way for parents to keep a conversation going. But the truth is, there wasn’t supposed to be such a big gap…...more
