“How do you know when your family is complete?” is one of the most common listener questions we receive. Meagan and Sarah both now have several years of hindsight separating them from the baby and toddler years, and today we’re reflecting on the idea of a “complete” family unit. We acknowledge that it doesn’t necessarily look like what we imagined it would – and that for many moms there is uncertainty and even grief wrapped up in all of this – but we also find much to celebrate about the current and future states of our proverbial “family tables”.

- Sarah refers to the recent More Than Mom: Meagan and Sarah as Kids & Teens episode when she compares how her sibling relationships were throughout childhood to her kids’ sibling relationships.
- We reference the Muscle Memory of Motherhood, however, we’d need a crash course on babies again today being so far removed from having newborns!

Loved this episode. We thought we were done with two kids. 12 years later changed our minds and had three more. This year the kids turn 31, 28, 17, 15 & 13. Yep. An 18 year gap between the first and last. It’s crazy but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Also? Enjoying two grandkids now too.
