It’s week two into parenthood and we’re back and at ’em with the listener questions about feeling sexually dis-satisfied in a year long relationship, what to do on a road trip to St. Louis, how to help a friend you think is being destructive sexually, whether it’s possible to raise healthy kids as vegetarians, how to gracefully accept help from friends when you are down for the count, what steps to take to successfully start a freelance business, how to tell if a relationship is platonic or something more, how to handle a noisy dog when it’s time to get intimate, and how to cope when your girlfriend is going through a personal crisis? Enjoy!
He’s an all time fave guest on Totally Laime (check out his first episode – #26) and he’s back after four short years where he’s dominated entertainment. The hilarious and talented actor from The Mindy Project and Happy Endings, ADAM PALLY came on and “pally’d” Elizabeth and Andy by discussing fatherhood, whether or not he’s able to celebrate the wins, and why he can’t keep any blunt or sharp objects in his house. Enjoy!
Laimemoms, today is a special day! I could NOT be more excited for this – For the first time ever in our over 400 podcasts I have the one, the only, MY SISTER! on as cohost – Anna-Marie Claassen, mom to Wright and Turner (my fave boys on the planet) is here to discuss The Good: Dance parties like no one’s watching, me being ready to roll into this motherhood thing!, The Bad: I’m missing our Mom a ton, Anna-Marie’s 3 year old is too wily for her to discipline, and The Funny: The things this toddler says! And Elizabeth is definitely bringing fast food into her health conscious birthing center. See if you can tell our voices apart! And Enjoy!
Introducing Theodora “Teddy” Mae Rosen! Laimeweds, we are in the throes of new parenthood – the elation, the exhaustion, the philosophical and the poop. We wanted to share our journey getting here with you all – the birth story, the feelings, how the animals are doing and what life has been like on this other side. Apologies if we’re a little “slow” or “spacey” or “crying a lot” (elizabeth) ~ all of our energy has gone towards loving, obsessing over and staring at our perfect little bundle! We’ll be back in our usual action someday… in the meantime, TEDDY! Enjoy!
In case you missed the hullabaloo on instagram and facebook, our new roommate has arrived! Theodora “Teddy” Mae Rosen came into the world as 8 lbs, 8 oz of pure awesome. We finally understand what all the fuss is about, we are beyond in love with this little one!
So, for the first week update… Even though I’m having a hard time physically with the sloooow healing and yes we are sleep deprived, honestly it’s been the best week of our lives. We’ve just cozied up with this little love nugget and are alternating staring at her and cuddling her and feeding her and changing her. Andy has been incredible about taking care of all the house stuff/cooking/Ruby out so I can focus on feeding this creature and healing my bod. We’ve got a good thing going, this little family of ours… it helps that she is spectacular!
This week has felt like an eternity and also it went by in a flash. We’re already sad about the inevitable passage of time and the fact that we can’t just freeze her as she is a huge bummer, but we’re also dying to see what comes next from Teddy. Facial expressions? A thesis on global energy? The sky’s the limit. She’s already sweet, adorable, hilarious, inquisitive and gorgeous. BTW, Did you see her cheeks? AHHHH!!
We’ll be giving the full scoop on Monday’s Totally Married – the labor, the delivery, the feelings, how Ruby and Ramona are taking things, all of it. Can’t wait to share with you all, thank you SO much for all the love you’ve sent our way, we have felt it big time!
