Ep. 130 One Year Recap of Being Parents: Spoiler Alert – We’re Still Learning!

Parenthood is a roller-coaster of emotions, challenges, and joyful moments that can transform your life in ways you never imagined. In this episode, I’m joined by my husband Joey to pull back the curtain on our first year with our baby, Carter.

Our heartfelt conversation shines a light on the highs, the lows, and the in-betweens of our journey as new parents. We chat about honest reflections on overcoming health scares, finding comfort in shared experiences, and the irreplaceable joy of simple moments with Carter.

This episode is a love letter to all parents and those embarking on this wonderful journey. So grab your favorite drink, settle down, and tune in for an episode full of heart and humor!

In this episode, we cover:

  • The emotional rollercoaster marking our first year with Carter
  • Unexpected challenges we encountered and how we tackled them
  • Small, everyday moments that make parenthood incredibly rewarding
  • The reality of managing expectations as first-time parents (perfect balance is a myth)
  • A fun interlude where Joey shares his thoughts on our favorite wines. Because, let’s face it, parenting also means finding those rare moments of downtime!
