It’s Thanksgiving week for our American listeners, so many of us have gratitude on the mind. While we are always grateful for the big things, like family and our health, thinking about the little things that work well can particularly nudge us toward an optimistic mindset.
In this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds, we talk about little things we are grateful for in various categories, like technology, kid-related matters, and consumables. We were also grateful to be recording together in person! Sarah and I recorded this episode (and next week’s) while sitting on a couch in her hotel room in Key Largo during our recent retreat. We are grateful for the technology that allows us to run a podcast together from afar. But it is also nice not to have to use that technology sometimes.
In the Q&A we address a thorny topic: when partners want different numbers of children. A listener wants a third child and her husband does not. What advice do we have for her? We welcome your advice on either addressing a partner’s concerns, or making your peace with a smaller family.
