We want to set an example of honesty and integrity for our kids, but what happens when we're confronted with a situation where we may have to bend the truth a smidge? A true moral dilemma, and one where we all have very differing opinions. Let's boil this frog together and see how it goes!
It's all fun and games until it's dinner time, at least for some of us. We hit the verbal buffet today; we rap about our kid's first taste of real food, the struggle to get them to eat (or do anything for that matter), questionable child contracts, and all the accoutrements in between.
Bins on bins on bins of kid stuff crammed into every nook and cranny of your home? Yeah, us too. The big question we dig into is if you love it, hate it, or just gave up and let the tidal wave of cheap consumable goods sweep you away into the vast expanse of the cluttered sea? Oh, and we also learn about Sukkot.
Our past shapes how we parent and forms the values we wish to pass on to our children. In this episode, we share an honest, vulnerable conversation about our paths to becoming the fathers we are now. Both joy and trauma prove to be powerful teachers.
Ever been in a situation with your kid(s) that caused you to feel that deep, gut-wrenching fear that stays with you? Yeah, we have too. Protective mechanism, overactive imagination, or there-is-no-fear-here, we're here to talk about it.
Winning isn't everything and losing provides some of our most valuable lessons. We rap about our experiences trying to teach our kids these principles and the importance of sportsmanship. Also, we'd like to ask the age old question: checkers or chess?
Anthony went and done did it, after all of our talk about having a plurality of children, he's expecting a new little one! We rap about the multiple baby experience, the influence of siblings, and the worst baby names of the year. Congrats again to Anthony, and your ever-burgeoning family, we'll be here for moral support!
We all took time off from work to fully experience that wonderfully exhausting, scary, and joyous time with our new family upgrade, and we're here to talk about it. Plus, what it was like having to manage Baby #1 while Baby #2 was rapidly approaching and upon arrival; never a dull moment.
Hootenannies, pirate ships, relay races, bubble tea, and pillow forts are all part of our repertoire of semi-useful tactics to get our little bed hogs to wind down and settle in for the night. This week we discuss our nighttime rituals, the unexplainable phenomenon of a small child having the ability to take up an entire king size bed, and how one of us was lucky enough to keep their little one sequestered to her Big Girl Bed at night. Honestly, we love every moment of it, and know that if we blink, it'll be all over way too soon.
