yup. this is us.

And he keeps me in check as well.

Neither of us is perfect at parenting and we help each other through the tough moments.

Also, if I see he's getting really flustered and things are escalating when they shouldn't be, or I notice he's handling something really badly, I'll try gently to step in and help (or take over) but I always try to do it in such a way that I am not bull-dozing over him.

And, I make a point to tell him when I think he handled something really well, too. So that it doesn't seem like every time I mention his parenting, it's something negative.
