Hi, thanks for visiting – my name is Zen. On Wednesday 31st May 2017, my partner Jenna and I became first-time parents to a daughter, Roma Nita Terrelonge.
I’m a journalist by day, but on discovering we had a baby on the way, I wanted to share my journey on the road to fatherhood and beyond.
Most of my friends are yet to become dads. So aside from the obvious use of handbooks, there was little personal wisdom for me to draw upon from a nearby friendly face when it came to shipping out on a nine-month voyage to a new life chapter.
However, I can say the mood swings you hear of are quite real…
On that note, welcome to DADult Life – a blog for parents-to-be, fellow first-timers and those out there already smashing it.
