What Is Straddle Parenting?

Have you ever …

Changed one child’s diaper during another child’s orthodontic appointment?

Experienced morning sickness while taking a teen to Driver’s Ed.?

Split a cake in half to decorate for two graduations: one from kindergarten, the other from high school?

Explained to your youngest that he’s the new baby’s uncle?

Had your college-age child drive you to your OB appointment?

Planned activities to occupy your preschooler at your daughter’s bridal shower?

If so, you’re in the trenches … you’re a straddle parent!
