So we’re back and at it and recording our podcast.
A lot of people (our mom) kept begging us to start again, and who are we to deny the people what they want?Continue reading “Season 2 Episode 1: Let Me”

With great power comes great responsibility.
And as women, we have this incredible power to create human life. And the responsibility? Raising those lil babies into kind humans.
But when it’s your first rodeo, it can be a little intimidating. We all go into this with preconceived ideas and expectations of what motherhood (and parenting in general) will be like.Continue reading “Advice For New Moms”
Keeping score in a relationship is, unfortunately, all too common. It becomes even more obvious when it’s the third time this week you’ve done dishes or you literally can’t remember the last time your partner initiated sex.Continue reading “Are You A Relationship Score Keeper?”
Shawn’s job requires him to travel a lot. Usually it’s within the States, but this past year he has almost exclusively been traveling to China.
He usually has to be there for 3-5 weeks at a time, which can put a damper on our dynamic.
And for those of you that doesn’t listen to the podcast (yet), our dynamic is that of two co-dependent dogs. (please refer to season 2 episode 2: China, please don’t take my man).
When Shawn was interviewing for the job he has currently, they told him that it would include traveling. As an (almost) newlywed, he made it known that he didn’t want to constantly be on the road going from installation from installation at the drop of a hat. They agreed that he shouldn’t, and wouldn’t go through that– especially since
he had a really awesome wife he didn’t want to be away from he was going to be newly married and in a new state.
They said they understood that marriage is important, especially in the beginning years. They’re formative and can really set the tone of the marriage. And our tone wasn’t going to be Lonely Melissa, that was for sure.
As a follow up to Criticism v Advice, we talk about saying sorry to your spouse. We all know that it seems like the hardest thing to do, but we discuss why that is… and why we hate doing it. We discuss some of our biggest fights, who
is the weaker spouse usually says sorry first, and we give some advice on how to apologize correctly.
We’ll be the first to admit that it’s not easy or fun, but it’s a necessary skill in marriage (and all relationships).
