Illustration for article titled Dadhacker - Does It Really Get THIS Bad??

Before we start, the chap in the video below is not me. My daughter has only just turned 1. She is also getting back into a good sleep routine (letting her have a run around in the park really helps).


The video titles "One man's Saturday morning... for 3 months", is of a guy looking really tired and stressed out, with a very energetic young girl keeping herself entertained in the background. Obviously we don't know the story behind this video; is he is a lone dad struggling to cope (though I know it is just as plausible to be part of a couple and still struggle) or would just prefer to spend his Saturday mornings with a bit of peace and quiet after a busy week at work catching up on some sport.

I feel his pain, but also feel hers. Is it a bit cruel, she obviously needs more attention. I guess there are limits to how much any parent can give. Poor Bottlerocket and poor kid...


Mel wrote some tips on learning to relax, but I guess you need to be able to make the time.. easier said than done.

What do you think?
