Happy New Year, everyone!

I am so excited for what the New Year has in store for you all here on the Aussie English podcast! But yeah, more about that in the coming weeks.

If you’ve been following along, you know we’ve always done podcast episodes together but now that she’s a mom, she’s barely been able to come to this podcast anymore.

So for the first episode of 2022, I’m sitting with my beautiful wife Raquel as we talk about our two children, Noah and Joana!

In today’s episode, we give you a recount of what’s going on with us since Joana was born. We also talk about the struggles of having to deal with little kids on a daily basis. Some days are better than others but wow, it’s really challenging for both of us.

When you see parents in supermarkets with screaming kids, don’t judge. Have a heart for them.

We also talk about how we’ve been handling things now. We definitely have adjusted, we’ve learned to take turns in handling our tiny screamers.

And what’s even better is that we are now raising not just one, but two bilingual children!

We actually have our own language at home now. Kids will call anything whatever they want, so they invent their own words!

We know we’re not the only ones experiencing this. Wherever in the world you are, do send us a message here on the Aussie English podcast. Don’t feel left out, share the struggle!

Cheers to a better 2022 for all of us!
