As parents we’re asked to juggle: ALL THE THINGS. Are there any balls in the air that we can allow to drop? Or are they all glass?

Connect-Disconnect-Reconnect

In this vulnerable post, I share a little bit about how I’ve moved from connection, through disconnection and back again to reconnection in my couple relationship.
