Our Story Begins:
Parenting Problem Or Matter Of Perspective?
How many of you have gotten that “look”?
You know which one I’m talking about . . . although those of you who are the “average” parent – the 2.5 children with the picket fence and golden retriever in the yard – you have no idea what I’m talking about.
I first started getting that “look” after the twins were born. To review: I have four kids: two girls, Abbi and Hannah; twin boys, Noah and Sam. Their ages go from almost 18 to 13 to 9. It wasn’t always easy, it was a difficult road.
Why? A year into marriage, very young, just determining our new life as a couple, Andrea got pregnant. She freaked out – and that’s an understatement. I didn’t and in 10 months we had our first child.
