Thank you for the laughs!

I just started listening to your podcast and I loved the first 3 episodes. Our family has 3 boys and they fit birth order well. We love watching your videos. I am also a Christian and love that you share scripture. Thank you for all the laughs.

So light and enjoyable ☺️

Love listening to Melissa and TJ. My kids are grown but I laugh as their stories spark so many memories of when they were younger. As the oldest of four it also makes me smile at my own childhood. Listen and laugh; the world needs more of it!! 🙂💙

Everything you want in a podcast

Hello friends! ☺️
I work for Uber eats and I am a mommy of 3 and a loving wife to my husband of almost 4 years!!
I just love hearing you guys have conversations together as a couple and as parents and as birth orders yourself! And I feel like I’m sitting with you guys and having these conversations cause I absolutely talk back and laugh!! And even tho I’m working, having a great podcast helps me feel like it’s also “me time.” And when I put while you were sleeping on the top of the list of Christmas movies I YIPPED out loud!! Cause it’s one of my favorite movies!! Thank you for normalizing birth order and ups and downs of parenting!!! Amazing podcast!! Thank you for all the happiness you bring to my Uber drives!! Love y’all
