If Castbox had a rating system, I'd give this 5 stars! Such an enjoyable, relatable podcast. I love listening to TJ & Melissa chat about parenting, share stories and encouragement, and laugh about birth order antics. They keep it real, reminding parents that we're all doing the best we can for our wild kiddos, and we're not alone in some of the silly or frustrating moments when we think, "Am I the only one whose kid is this way??" I look forward to each new episode!

Found this couple through IG Reels and became addicted to the hysterical (and highly accurate) representation of kids. Even though I have 5, I see the stereotypes play out so well. They say they want you to feel like you are just hanging out with friends, talking about parenting and that is EXACTLY how it feels. 🥰
