Episode 11

Our co-host today is the fantastic DANIELLA LIBEN PALLY – mom to two year old Cole and one year old GG – two adorable kids with the most gorgeous eyelashes ever invented! We talk The Good: (Cole saying I love you, Elizabeth made a new mom-to-be friend), The Bad: (Getting parenting judgement at the farmers market, Elizabeth has a very big kiddo ready to come out of a very small place) and The Funny: (GG finger painting on the walls with her poop, Elizabeth is once again bad at domesticity). Then they dive into giving their unqualified advice to listener questions including the path through infertility, how to manage feelings when you aren’t able to have kids but everyone around you is, what tips mothers might have when flying with infants, whether or not to wait until you are financially secure to have kids, and how to navigate taking time for emotional/mental self care when you are a parent? Leave comments/feedback at – Enjoy!

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question regarding parenting with depression and anxiety. We’re trying our best to carve out time for self-care. Love the shows!

A suggestion for the infertility question. It may sound crazy but look into and research the moons cycle in comparison with a women’s menstrual cycle. My husband and I were trying to have a baby for about a year.We too were surrounded by friends and family getting pregnant so easily. It was hard to feel happy for everyone when we were hurting for the same thing. I wasn’t ready to revert to medical intervention or to the idea that something was wrong with us. So I began my research. I stumbled upon lunar fertility. It’s theory: when a women ovulates during a full moon is when she’s most fertile and best chance to conceive. Might be coincidence or it may have worked but we finally conceived and it was during a full moon while also during my ovulation period. I now have a beautiful 6 month little girl. Just something to look into. Best of luck to you!

Hi, Elizabeth!
First off, congratulations on your new baby girl! I’m a new listener to your podcasts, and I’ve heard you discuss problems cooking on your shows. Have you tried using a crockpot? As a new mom, I find using the crockpot invaluable, and there are so many options for things you can fix in the crockpot. Here’s a link to a great crockpot blog:

I really loved Daniella’s honesty and laid-back parenting approach. It seems like a lot of your guests are very “LA” and have similar views on things, it was neat to hear someone who was more relatable to people in the middle of the country 🙂 Thanks for getting such a wide spectrum of guests!
