6 – Kids Fly Free?

We’re about knees deep in summer time right now. If you are traveling farther than you can drive in a day, maybe two, you are going to have to face flying with kids. Troy has quite a bit of experience flying with his sons, and Seamus has some experience flying with his oldest daughter (he hasn’t braved both girls yet, but will a couple weeks after this episode). With several combined flights with children, Troy and Seamus have some lessons learned to share.

5 – Picking a House

Buying a house is big. Big investment. Big decision. Big commitment. Big expense. That statement is true no matter who you are and what your family situation looks like. Having kids adds a few degrees of complication to the home buying equation. Seamus offers some tips on what to look for in a house based on all the mistakes he made in picking his first home about 6 months before his first kid was born. Troy, on the other hand, will share his perspective based on not only his own home buying experience, but also his expertise as a residential real estate agent.

4 – Smoke & Mirrors – Food Edition

This is the first installation of a series Troy and Seamus want to do called Smoke and Mirrors. Occasionally we will discuss ways we trick the kids into compliance through various acts of smoke and mirrors. As any parent knows, it is sometimes more about presentation and mindset than anything else. In this edition, we are talking about food. We share some of the tricks we use to get our kids to eat certain tough food and drink.

What are some of your tricks to get your kids to eat what is put in front of them? Can you pass a bratwurst off as a hot dog? Share below in the comments.

And for any brave souls who want to try the Peanut Butter Soup recipe, Seamus’ mom sent it to me. You can get the cookbook here. In fairness to Mable Hoffman, Momma Nelson made some great meals out of this book. The PBS just wasn’t one of them.

3 – Expectant Dad, an interview with Allen Wallace

This is a fun episode – it is the first time we’ve interviewed a guest for the show. Allen Wallace is an officer with the U.S. Army and he and his wife are expecting a baby. In this conversation, we talk about his experience so far in his wife’s pregnancy. You’ll get to hear him talk about how he found out they were expecting, how he navigates a pregnant woman, learning the sex of the baby and how to announce it, a unique use for toilet paper, cravings, the list goes on.

Because we know y’all are wondering, Allen and Josie announced they are expecting a baby girl at their wedding.

*production note* We learned several things about recording three people at the same time. We ran into some microphone SNAFU. The audio isn’t perfect, but you can hear Allen very clearly, which is the importnat part.
