Children … They provide us with a sense of pride that is unmatched.

Raising kids truly feels like the reason we're placed on this earth.  We learn from them, we grow with them and the bond that is formed is a blessing from God.

Children are also QUITE annoying, sticky and interrupt you constantly.

The Stickiness of Parenthood

In this session of the Marriage, Kids and Money Podcast, I chat with Clint Edwards about this conundrum of loving and hating your kids in the same day.

Clint is a writer, an author and mostly, a guy who just tells you how it REALLY is when it comes to marriage and kids.  

His brand of honest, raw and hilarious writing has been featured in Fast Company, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Huffington Post and even Good Morning America.  

Clint is currently a staff writer at Scary Mommy.  If you haven’t checked out Scary Mommy and you have crazy kids like I do, it is a great place to laugh to keep your sanity through parenthood.

For the past year, I’ve been a big fan of Clint’s blog called I have no idea what I’m doing:  A Daddy Blog.  Again, another excellent place for parental levity.  

Late last year, Clint put out a book called This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.  It's a series of short funny stories about Clint’s life as a parent.  I frightened some fellow passengers on the plane with how loud I was laughing while reading this book.  If you have kids and a sense of humor, you will think this book is priceless.

Enjoy!
