Young Parenting Podcast
Everything you need to know about YPP!
Young Parenting Podcast is a weekly podcast where Alyssa and Steven talk about being young parents, as well as outline some of their failures, struggles, achievements, and much more from that previous week.
As young parents, ages 24 and 22, they experience a lot of difficult struggles. Whether they are financially, emotionally, or even proud struggles – yes they exist – they wanted a way to share it with the world.
YPPodcast is their outlet. A way to vent and share their life, in a non-formal, relaxed environment.
I’m a 24 year old father of two beautiful boys. One boy, Zachary Johnson, is a 4 year old, energetic dude that loves toy cars, nerf guns, Minecraft…and everything else toddlers love. When he was 2, he was diagnosed with high-functioning autism. The other boy, Logan Johnson, is 1 month old and loves to sleep, eat, poop and cry. I couldn’t ask for a better life!
I currently make a living through online content creation, specifically as a freelance graphic designer, YouTuber and affiliate marketer. In my spare time, I’m a huge car enthusiast, video game player, and musician.
I’m a 22 year old mother of the said two beautiful boys, Zachary and Logan. I currently make a living by being a private nanny, as well as being a stay-at-home mother. In my spare time, I enjoy all things mommy related…I guess my life is revolved around being a mother. What more could I ask for?
All jokes aside, being a mother is really my full-time job. Having the freedom to be home while I watch my children grow up, not having to adhere to rules and regulations of the normal world – I’m truly blessed.
Shortly after the encounter from mutual friends and McDonald’s, Steven took Alyssa out to Applebee’s for a first date and the rest is pretty much history.
Not long after dating, Alyssa and Steven found out they were pregnant with their first boy, Zachary. He was born on December 25, 2011 – yes, that’s Christmas! About a year and a half after birth, they started to see some developmental delays and got Zachary evaluated. He was eventually diagnosed with high-functioning autism.
When Zachary was three years old, Alyssa and Steven found out they were pregnant with their second child. Unfortunately, things took an unexpected turn for the worse around 14 weeks and they had a miscarriage. While it was a very difficult moment in their life, it brought them closer together.
Exactly one year after having a miscarriage, they found out they were expecting their third child. Nine months later and zero complications, their second baby boy, Logan, was born on April 4, 2016.
