The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

Today's Happy Hour guest is my friend Amber Rose Zimel, and I just love everything about her!  Amber Rose and her husband, Adam, have five kids - four boys and one girl. They are also adoptive parents and their youngest was born in Ethiopia. Today Amber Rose and I talk a lot about parenting since between us we have nine kids. She is someone that I look up to a lot in parenting, so it was a joy to talk about raising kids with her. 

Amber Rose shares her story of becoming a mom as a teenager and how her and Adam have then grown their family since then. We talk about talking with our kids about the big S word - sex. We both talk to our kids when they are young about this subject in hopes that we will be their influencers and not their friends.

We also share what books we're reading and just how dang hard this job of parenting is! You will love our conversations!
