    Episode #28 - Adapting To Change

    Episode #28 - Adapting To Change

    If there is one thing we can all relate to (especially this year) is how being able to adapt to change plays a huge role in our lives from childhood to adulthood.

    This week, Katie G and Mark Adam discuss how as kids their friend groups would change depending on which sport they might be playing at the time and how that also applies to changing jobs/moving as an adult.

    On a more holiday-themed note, they talk about the financial struggle with Christmas right around the corner but Katie G reads out some hilarious kids' letters to Santa to put them back in the holiday spirit.

    Episode #27 - Life Is Crash-tastic

    Episode #27 - Life Is Crash-tastic

    2020 isn’t over yet! There are still a few weeks left of WTF moments and this week was no exception.

    Mark Adam tells us about the multi-car accident he was involved in just an hour before recording! Thankfully everyone is okay but this year is testing us all.

    Speaking of tests, Katie G talks about how her oldest step-daughter, Alison, passed her beginners test and now she is mentally preparing to teach Alison to drive a standard. Pray for her clutch.

    Episode #26 - Doing Our Best

    Episode #26 - Doing Our Best

    Sometimes in life, all you can do is your best. Whether it's being a parent/step-parent or just a human in society, we can only do so much!

    Katie G. discusses her hilarious attempt at salvaging a surprise birthday dinner for her step-daughter’s Sweet 16, then tells an interesting story about an impromptu “family reunion” while helping her and Mark Adam’s grandmother move into her new place.

    Mark Adam gives us a lesson in how Manitobans pronounce their seemingly obvious street names. Try pronouncing one... you’re definitely wrong.

    Episode #25 - Live, Laugh, Lockdown

    Episode #25 - Live, Laugh, Lockdown

    The struggle is REAL in 2020 and I think most of us feel that way (except those pesky anti-maskers). Some of us are back in lockdown (or on our way there) so Katie G and Mark Adam discuss their respective situations.

    But this episode is not made up 100% of our hosts complaining FOR ONCE. Katie G provides some ideas to keep us sane through another lockdown including a fun DIY advent calendar for your kids and, more importantly, an adult version [aka booze].

    Mark Adam is also hoping for some tips on how to balance work life with homeschooling his kids. How do YOU prioritize and stay organized? Leave any ideas or suggestions on any of the podcast social platforms! They need all the help they can get.

    Episode #24 - Step(ping Up) Parents

    Episode #24 - Step(ping Up) Parents

    This week continues the 2020 saga of “WTF’s” and “OMG is this over yet?“

    Mark Adam had a rough weekend with both car and computer troubles, while Katie G. just doesn’t know what day it is (classic).

    The struggle of step-parenting is the hot topic this week. Whether bringing your own child into a blended family setting or just getting an "instant family," our hosts discuss how both methods of becoming a step-parent have their own ups and downs.

    Moral of the story? Adulting is hard. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make fun of your kids… we actually encourage it.

    Send your own stories/struggles/funny moments to Mark Adam and Katie G on any of the PaRANTing social media platforms. They need to know they’re not alone… so needy, right?

    Episode #23 - Sarcastic Parent = Sarcastic Kids

    Episode #23 - Sarcastic Parent = Sarcastic Kids

    Join Mark Adam and Katie G. this week as they reminisce about the “good ol’ days” when a stern look from their parents could stop them in their tracks and as long as they were out of their parent's hair, they didn’t seem to be too concerned with what they were up to (when they definitely should have been).

    They also discuss how being a sarcastic parent means you undoubtedly will end up with sarcastic children, which is hilarious but also infuriating. How dare they use our awesome personality traits against us!?

    Speaking of personalities, Mark Adam tells us about a great personality test (the Meyers-Briggs) and how it provides a great insight into who we are as a person, a parent, a partner and a friend. Take the test (only takes about 10 minutes) and let them know your results (Mark Adam is an ENFP or "Campaigner") on any PaRANTing podcast social media platforms! (Take the test at 16personalities.com - #notsponsored)
