Best of Both Worlds Podcast

Jun 25, 2019

This episode opens with an in-depth analysis of the challenges of big kids vs little ones, and then we delve into Laura's summer spreadsheet (fun!), and then we get into the challenges, benefits, and myths about having kids in different stages of life.  Some things are tough (spoiler alert: toddlers are hard no matter what!) but others haven't been nearly as bad as we feared!  We also discuss the strategies we use to make sure each kid gets some individual time.  In the Q&A, we answer a listener question about adding a third kid to the family -- specifically, does it get easier after the baby phase?
