My name is Matt Ross and I am a stay at home parent and daddy blogger. I have two children, one is The Boy who insists on following me everywhere and has a hankering for diggers and biccies, the other is this blog, don’t ask me to choose a favourite a parent never tells. Mrs Under plays the role of photographer, proof reader, bread winner and beautiful wife and she does them all very well.
I come from England, which begrudgingly makes me a ‘Whinging Pom‘, and came to Melbourne in 2008 in search of sun, sea and sport. I have since come over all snobby about bikes, coffee and food which pretty much makes me a regular Melbournite. Australia is now our home and a very nice one it is too.
I blog because I love to write, not the love you declare when your fifteen, in a park and drunk on cider, real true love. There was a whole other me before parenthood and there is a whole other me now. Prior to proudly wearing the Stay at Home Parent label I had a lovely shiny Modern Man label, I love that label and don’t want to give it up, so as well as writing about parenting from a Stay at Home Dad’s perspective I write about food, fitness, fashion and travel with little people around. I am the Dad who insists on having his cake and eating it……I really like cake.
I hereby promise to write regular posts, neglecting my fatherly duties in favour of writing how amazing it is to be a father. I will try to make sure they are relevant and free of tedium. I will refrain from all manner of preaching or teaching in favour of light hearted observations. What I want in return is for other parents to visit this Blog and feel compelled to share their stories and love for their own children. Mums please use the blog as an opportunity to get into the inner sanctum of the male psyche and join us on our journey through Dadhood, alternatively you can have a good laugh at how pathetic we are.
