Parenting Vs. Podcast

Podcasting is hard—it’s especially hard with kids around. We parent, discuss life, social topics, and the world around us—all while trying to keep our 3 kids busy, which never happens.

Giving Grace

Time is moving slow and fast at the same time. How is this even possible? Every day begins the same--I wake up between 5:30 and 6. I stumble to the coffee pot then make coffee. I clean the dishes in the sink if there are any. Then I sit on my patio chair outside and watch the sun come up and wait for the chaos and noise that awaits when the all the kids wake up. 

Every. Day. Begins. The. Same. Way. 

It's like groundhog day, but with more masks, and less friends. It's no wonder 6 months felt like 100 years and 1 month at the same time. 

But in all this, it's hard to focus on your mental health. It's hard to get clarity. It's hard to breathe. To take a moment to think. To feel okay. It's hard. Then things begin to pile up, and frustration builds. I don't know about you, but I can take it out on the person that just happens to be in the same room as me. And more often than not it's a child of mine, or my spouse. 

The pandemic has been hard to say the least. 

In this episode we talk about our frustrations that are ongoing. How we're handling. Some honesty on parenting and some honesty on marriage. We hope you enjoy this episode. Thanks for listening!
