(Read more about parenting and partners on our resource page and enjoy this week’s articles on the theme.)

From Shannon: “We each have our strengths and weaknesses, and work together to raise our children. I would not be the mother I am without his support.”

Shannon blogs at Pineapples & Artichokes.

Jorje could not have survived the NICU without her partner, Elmo. Here you see a rare NICU visit together.

Jorje blogs at Momma Jorje.

Amy says, “Sledding as a family wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible partnership of my Hubs! We took turns sledding with Abbey and holding Joe.”

Amy blogs at Toddler In Tow.

From Stefanie at Very, Very Fine: Papa takes the swing (co-sleeping) shift while Mama gets some time to herself.

From Lauren: “Sam and I take an equal role in parenting our two kids. We don’t always have the same tasks, but we are both invested in the day-to-day of attachment caregiving as we balance working from home with raising a family. Here Sam displays his fatherly skills by climbing a (low) tree with our four-year-old while babywearing our newborn.”

Lauren blogs at Hobo Mama.

From Lani: “Mama and Daddy baby wearing. We both have loved the closeness and ease of being able to wear ~B~ whether it was a newborn snuggle or a pre-toddler carry. At 21 months we still babywear.”

Lani blogs at Boobie Time.

Joella shares, “Goodbye Kiss: When my husband gets home from work, it’s time for me to go to work. We coordinate our schedules to minimize the time Delilah spends in the care of others. “

Joella blogs at Fine and Fair.

Jennifer says, “From high school sweethearts to parents of three amazing children (this picture was taken last year, before we welcomed out newest addition), being partners has always been a part of our relationship. Our family enjoys many more outings to great places when we can work together! This was taken at Pike Place Market in Seattle, Wa. You can find more of our adventures from our oldest son’s point of view at Little View of a Big World and learn more about us at True Confessions of a Real Mommy.”

From Megan at The Other Baby Blog: “Anabella needs kisses from Mama AND Daddy to thrive!”

Kat at Loving {Almost} Every Moment shares her hubby gardening and babywearing with their kiddos.

Kat and her hubby share the same vision for their family and she is very grateful he is so involved in parenting.

Amy of Peace 4 Parents is very grateful to be discovering the benefits of partnership parenting with her husband, Michael.

From Nada: “My daughter couldn’t have asked for a better father.  My husband is a wonderful provider, a caring man who treasures his little girl dearly.  He hasn’t balked at cloth diapering, babywearing, cosleeping, or compassionate parenting.  He is supportive, protective and caring.  No other man has been his equal.”

Luschka says, “I love listening to my husband and daughter spending time together, whether it’s cooking or playing or cleaning. The way they communicate makes me love being part of a family. “

Charise blogs at I Thought I Knew Mama.

From Rebekah at Liberated Family: “Parenting with my partner and best friend is almost always a joy and is more amazing and fun than I ever imagined parenting could be.”
