Summer here for another episode of the Everything Always podcast! Welcome! Today, I’m going to talk about some things you should know before blending your families. What I mean by “blending” is when you officially turn your, and your new partner’s, families into one by co-living and co-parenting.
To be honest, when Michael and I officially merged our families into one, there were some things we did wonderfully – and some things we could’ve done better. Now we want to share the five main things to be clear on before blending.
We hope this list saves you some trouble and allows your family to blend as beautifully and seamlessly as possible. By building a foundation for your family, your kids will feel so much more love, confidence, and security. So, grab a pen and listen in to find out the five main things to establish before blending families.
