The New Normal Podcast The podcast for multitasking parents - a casual discussion about everything and anything pertaining to life as working parents.

March 9, 2019  

We're back for 2019, after a rather strange and frequently stressful end to 2018! Yes, both Emma and Tess' spouses went under the knife late last year after sudden yet unrelated accidents (just a few weeks apart!). In this ep we digest the aftermath and take stock of what we learned. And we make up for lost time by sharing our summer reads and TV recommendations, PLUS, yet another (hopefully the last) update to Tess' Paid Parental Leave miniseries.

We know our audio recording quality is a bit lacking, but if you love the content, give us some stars on iTunes if you can? What else is there to do when you're forced to sit on the sidelines during the kids' swimming lesson... ;) xx E&T
