Celebrating Our Unique Family with Netflix #StreamTeam


When my husband and I were married, we joined two very different cultures and backgrounds: Italian and Zimbabwean. Over the years this has meant adjusting to different attitudes towards aspects of the home, meals and even language! I still remember driving the car with my husband and him yelling at me to pay attention to the robots. So of course I looked around the intersection scanning for robots, but what he meant by robots was the traffic lights (oops!).

Eleven years and two children later, we are still growing stronger, becoming accustomed to each others cultures and preferences and blending this into our children. Our children attempt to talk like their Daddy (with the accent) and use his unique words. The only thing I can’t quite get  used to is some of the food items he loves! I dislike meat on a bone (don’t ask it is truly a personal thing that even I don’t understand!) and he loves his meat (ox tail!).

Each family is unique in their own way and while our family brings to it a blended culture many other families bring their own twist on the traditional nuclear family – think same-sex parents and step families. There is no longer the ideal perfect family and this is what makes each family perfect in their own unique way.

    We are also a mixed race/religion family. I am Catholic and Polish and my husband is a Muslim Persian. Ox tail is the best…this is making me salivate right now but to each his own. I did not know your husband was from Zimbabwe, amazing stuff and as always thanks for the amazing read!

    The robots bit was hilarious. lol. My boyfriend and I are from the same race, but we definitely have different views about family. I’m more of a family person than him, so I’m sure it would be an adjustment for the both of us once we get together or get married. I’m sure we both would learn from each other.
