We're Ryan and Lauren, mid-30s Texas parents of a newborn baby girl and a 4-year-old boy. We're not full of magical advice—sorry. But we're sharing the daily minutiae of parenting, everything from getting kids to sleep to flying with kids. Sometimes we're full of great ideas, other times we just need a place to vent! (For our kids' privacy, we'll just be referring to them on the podcast as "the boy" and "the girl".)
