This week Julie and Gina get real about all the stress of handling parenting relationships with a partner and how exponentially challenging it is during week number 748 of the pandemic.
"It's not like it was all that easy before."
"All our creative secondary systems of support are maxed out by now."
"There's a typical joy to bringing kids back to school for their connection and socialization and for our family scheduling needs and that built-in relief isn't there this year."
"A lot of folks rolled into the pandemic with small issues unresolved (or in typical chaos and crisis) and then added a pandemic on top."
"It's never going to be a waste of time to show up and connect with your partner."
