Parenting

Loving the podcast , two is easy compared to three , but twins is hard AF ! Having four myself and two with special needs managing it all and doing all the parent things is hard . I love that you are taking on the changes in “traditional families “ . As relationships change and we open up to varied relationships there is nothing typical about it . We are parenting in a special needs marriage. I grew up in a Co parenting situation we started with two kids and ended with 4 and I am adopted definitely not a typical family!
