The stereotypical midlife crisis involves a balding man in a red sports car. Neither Sarah nor I bought a convertible upon turning 40. But mid-life birthdays are a time for thinking about life and what we want life to look like. So in this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds, we open with a discussion of midlife awakenings and Sarah’s thoughts on her recent birthday, attending her 20th college reunion and so forth.
Then we pivot to some listener questions and responses. We share a helpful note from a listener who is navigating the tough combination of parenting young kids while trying to spend time with and care for her mother, who is in the early-to-middle stages of Alzheimer’s. This listener has some good advice on navigating these often competing roles.
Then we turn to some lighter questions on easy meal planning and baby personalities. Do they stay consistent with time?
Please give the episode a listen! And as always, we welcome ratings and reviews. (We are aware that the sound is a little different — we could not get Squadcast, our normal recording software, to work. So it was back to Zoom for this one…)
