Our Blog Info

Hello, Internet Wanderers, Keyboard Connoisseurs, and Digital Nomads!

Welcome to our little corner of the webiverse, where we’ve got more flavors than a gourmet ice cream shop and our scoops come in the form of blogs!

🌱 First up, let’s dig into our Gardening and Homestead blog – it’s the freshest sprout in our digital garden! If you’re into turning seeds into salads and think that chickens are the new dogs, this is the place for you. Watch us as we learn the difference between a hoe and a rake, and cheer for our victories over the relentless weed armies!

🌍 Got wanderlust? Our Travel blog is a scrapbook of memories with pages still blank for future escapades. It’s “Our Most Loved Destinations” (so far) and “Places We’ll Go Once We Figure Out How to Pack Light.” We share tales from the road, tips on how to charm a TSA agent, and why you should always carry duct tape in your backpack.

🍔 Forks and knives at the ready? The Food & Drink blog is a judgment-free zone for those who talk to their pizzas and believe that a good meal is a cure for anything. Here, we spill the beans (sometimes literally) on our culinary capers and mixology experiments. Get your aprons on; it’s about to get deliciously messy!

🏡 And finally, the General Lifestyle blog. It’s like a box of chocolates, a treasure trove of our latest antics, and the diary of a family that doesn’t know how to stay still. From the saga of parenting (spoiler: the kids are winning), the rollercoaster of business life, to a love affair with houseplants (“Meet Phil, our Philodendron”) – we’ve got stories to keep you entertained and maybe even inspired!

What’s the catch? There isn’t one. Unless you count our DIY attempts – those are definitely a catch-22. Strap in; it’s going to be a fun ride, and we can’t promise you won’t get glitter on you.

So bookmark us, RSS us, or just write our URL on a sticky note. Whatever your flavor, we’ve got the scoop. And who knows, you might just find yourself trying to grow tomatoes, booking a trip to Timbuktu, baking a soufflé, or making your own soap. (Yes, we went through a phase. No, we don’t want to talk about it.)

About The Products We Recommend

At The Parent Perspective we’re passionate about bringing value to our readers through the products and services we recommend. Transparency and trust are the cornerstones of our relationship with you, our valued community.

Our recommendations are always made with your interests in mind. We pride ourselves on our integrity and commitment to honest endorsements. Sometimes, the products we suggest come with no strings attached – meaning we don’t earn a commission. When we do receive a commission from the sales of products we recommend, it’s important to us that you understand how these contributions help us.

The commissions we earn play a crucial role in supporting the operational costs of this blog. They allow us to continue to create content that informs, inspires, and guides you in making the best choices for your needs. Your support through these purchases enables us to keep doing what we love, and for that, we are incredibly grateful.

In our entrepreneurial spirit, we also take pride in designing and crafting our own products. Our journey as business entrepreneurs has led us to create offerings that we believe in and are excited to share with you. When we feature our own products, we will always provide clear disclosure. We are proud of our creations and hope that they resonate with you as they do with us.

Please know that whether a product we recommend offers us a commission, or is one we have personally developed, our reviews and recommendations are always genuine. We will always explain why we endorse a product and clearly state if we will receive a commission or if it is a product we own and sell.

We appreciate every one of you who supports us, and we are committed to maintaining the trust you have placed in us. Thank you for being a part of our journey, and we hope to continue to serve you with content and products that enrich your life.

Warm regards,

Jesse & Tia Parent, Aka The Real Parents

Who We Are

Hey there, Earthlings! Welcome to the zany world of The Real Parents ( Jesse & Tia )The Dynamic Duo – that’s us, the two lovebirds with a penchant for wrangling not just business deals and design dilemmas, but also our two mini-mes who are as wild about adventure as a squirrel is about a bird feeder.

Coming to you live from the mitten state (yes, Michigan!), our family is all about diving headfirst into adventures (sometimes literally), cultivating our own food empire (one tomato at a time), and savoring the zestiest flavors life has to offer (because who wants a bland life, right?).

Our blog is like the family van – packed with travel hacks that could make Lewis and Clark green with envy, gardening gold nuggets that’ll turn your thumbs greener than a grasshopper, and homesteading how-tos that make Little House on the Prairie look like amateur hour.

Not only do we spill the beans on our top-secret travel spots (shh, don’t tell the tourists), mouthwatering bites (calories don’t count if they’re delicious, right?), and all the products that make our world spin ’round (we’re looking at you, multipurpose spork), but we also lace each tale with a dollop of humor, because let’s face it, life’s too short for boring blogs!

Blogging isn’t just what we do—it’s our jam, our salsa, and our soul food! It’s our digital scrapbook where we get to share the ups, the downs, and the loop-de-loops of living this chaotic, beautiful life with you, our extended cyber family.

Oh, and did we mention we’re also business owners and designers? When we’re not playing superhero in the realm of entrepreneurship, we’re crafting designs so enchanting they’d make Picasso throw down his paintbrush.

So buckle up, buttercup! If you’re into getting your hands dirty in the garden, living the vagabond dream, or just want to eat your way through life’s buffet with a couple of Michigander mavericks, you’re in the right place. Let’s laugh, learn, and leap into this blogging adventure together – it’s going to be a hoot!

Stay adventurous, stay hungry, and stay tuned!

Cheers, The Real Parents 🌽🚗🌻🍕
