Family comes first. Here we'll discuss things we're struggling with as well as ways to strengthen and improve your relationships with your family members.
I was so excited when Snaps asked me to be a part of the writing included on her new website. The opportunity to write about adoption to an expanded audience is something I was eager to take part in. That being said, I had *NO* idea what specifically to write about. I didn’t want my first post to be too heavy or negative. At the same time, I didn’t want something that’s just fluffy and feel-good. After several days of thinking about it and talking with my wife (she’s awesome, by the way), I decided on a simple topic based on the questions our family hears most often, both on Twitch and in real life: Five common phrases things every adoptive family hears, that probably don’t come across the way you think they do.
I have a two-year-old daughter who is pretty much the most amazing human being on this planet (sorry everybody else). My husband and I had our daughter after most of our friends and family already had kids, so we had it all figured out! (insert sarcastic eye roll) We knew everything we weren’t going to do as parents and everything we weren’t going to let our child do.
I have a two-year-old daughter who watches Disney Jr. pretty much all-day long. Now before all the hater moms jump on me and say “well that’s too much TV time” keep in mind the TV is on in the background while she jumps around playing with her toys, reading books and completely terrorizing the house. Also keep in mind I really don’t care about your opinion on TV time for my child.
