So, how do you have the “perfect” family? I can tell you what not to do. Don’t have very high expectations. Instead, be realistic. Drink when you feel you need to! Can I get an Amen here? (I mean, that didn’t happen to be me drinking, I’m just using it as an example.)
“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”
My biggest pieces of advice if you don’t have a perfect life, just go with it.

Let me know.
