Answers to a New Dad’s QuestionsDad to be Alan Steinborn from Real Money asks his questions about becoming a father. J from Budgets are Sexy comes on the podcast to share his thoughts and stories on parenthood.

This has got to be one of my favorite episodes and it only has a smidge of finance in it!

The other week when I was in Charlotte, Alan came to me with this idea. He’s a dad to be and he’s expecting his first kid in few months.

He already has a lot on his plate now with running Real Money, but he wanted to take time now to prepare for this huge transition.

He has so many questions that he wanted to ask. Beside chatting with me, he wanted to get a father’s take on it and so he suggested J , who is the creator of Budgets are Sexy.

I was thrilled that J would be willing to come back on. He helped me when I was pregnant with our second daughter and I was anxious.

I felt honored that he wanted to do this on the podcast. Becoming a parent is life biggest transformations and to be able to be a guru, but a guide is a pleasure.

While we did have some serious moments of reflection, we had plenty of laughter and stories.
But most importantly we had an honest talk about the joys, the challenges, and the changes with being a parent. Not just with finances, but with your relationship and finding time for yourself.
