Although Lindsay has absolutely no regrets about her family's coparenting situation, she's run into her fair share of skeptical strangers.
"When people judge our situation, I have to pause and think before I speak," she said. "Which is very hard for me to do. I want to ask them if they are happy with their living situation, if they're divorced, and if their kids happy? I have learned to deflect all negative comments, and I speak the truth."
She also tends to raise a very important point in these conversations: her kids couldn't be any happier with the arrangement.
"Our kids are happy and they don't have to deal with the 'divorce shuffle' bouncing back and forth between homes," she explained. "They have stability and they're well cared for."
She added that the blended family lifestyle has been especially beneficial for Lucas.
"Lucas has autism and that is so hard to deal with," she said. "He can't cope with change and we're lucky to be able to live this way. We all want what's best for our kids. Some people just don't get it, and that's okay. My goal is to open their minds."
As for the challenges that come with having a blended family? According to Lindsay, there aren't a ton. But occasionally, their parenting styles can be conflicting.
"There aren't many cons to having the three of us parents living together, or it probably wouldn't work," she said. "The challenge is for Mike, Chris, and me to always be on the same page. We are for the most part, but sometimes Chris gives in too much, Mike can be too strict, and I am all over the place."
As the only adult woman in the home, Lindsay wouldn't be surprised if Chris and Mike found her hard to work around from time to time: "From 'the dads' point of view, I'm sure they both find living with me to be quite a challenge because I'm a take charge kind of person. However, I like to think that I get things done."
