Episode 7 | August 9th, 2018

May can be a hectic month for any family with young children in school. The current school year is ending and summer is about to begin—but some families have more to do to prepare for the next school year than others before they can go on their family vacation.

In episode 7, Mollie and Jarrod reflect upon Wren and Fox’s recent school year, their children’s progress, prepping for the upcoming school year, and the many changes and challenges they have faced together as a family.

“It was just really amazing to watch a kid that at the beginning of the year didn't even want to make eye contact with his peers—To see his friends interacting with him and him taking turns, I mean, he was a 4½-year-old kid at the bowling alley that day, you know?”

– Mollie Glasgow

“We feel like Gemiini is really giving Wren every advantage that we can to help her be a success when she gets to school. We feel really confident about where she's at right now.”

– Jarrod Glasgow

Episode 9 | November 6th, 2018

This new school year is a little more hectic for the Glasgows than years past. With three kids coming home with homework each day, Mollie and Jarrod were worried about how they would balance everyone's homework needs. After putting a strategy together, they figured out how Gemiini could help!

"We wanted to be able to put our picture with it so it's not like some abstract thought of a 'mom' or a 'dad.' We wanted Fox to know that we're his mom and we're his dad."
