All this talk about cooking had me wondering something. Who does the cooking in your family?
In the Lost and Tired family, we don’t have what is likely considered a typical family dynamic. Because of our particular situation and the overwhelming amount of health issues, we have basically abandoned gender roles.
As the man of the house, I do the cooking, mostly because I really enjoy it. I also do laundry, dishes and bathe the kids. I’ve been known to repair clothes and I’m usually the one to go grocery shopping.
This is because Lizze and I are a team.
Because of her health issues, she is limited as to what she can physically do. As her teammate, I automatically pick up the slack and when she’s able to, she does the same for me.
We have found that special needs parenting requires a great deal more than we have ever thought ourselves capable of.
Having said that, we have found success by each playing to our strengths.
How does your family work?
