One of Elizabeth’s besties, Mary Elizabeth Ellis is back with her hilarious stories and full of heart insights to the aftermath of childbirth (bubble of peace to anyone who is pregnant for the first 25 mins!) why she’ll take placenta pills and of course their good/bad funnies! Then they give their unqualified advice to listener questions about pelvic pain during pregnancy, how to handle a kid who will not eat solids, and how to address a potentially touchy situation with a nanny regarding attention and care. Enjoy!
Elizabeth and Andy segue from dreams to haunted mansions (shout out to Elizabeth’s mom and the Demenil Mansion in St. Louis!) to why Ruby is wearing lentil soup before they dive into a bunch of awesome questions. They give their unqualified advice on whether to go for your goals even if it means suffering financially for a while, how to handle a mom friend who oscillates from needy to flakey, whether or not to spay/neuter your pup (YES TO THAT!) how to handle the fallout after a miscarriage and lack of communication in a marriage, whether wedding etiquette requires a dinner out after the wedding, how to handle a rocky relationship with a bipolar, alcoholic mother, what to do about hurtful comments from the in-laws, and lastly how to handle a familial childcare situation when it may strain a sibling relationshp? Enjoy!
Our cohost today is mom to a 2.5 yr. old, storyteller extraordinaire and author of “Gawky” and soon-to-be released “Long Story Short” MARGOT LEITMAN! We discuss the challenges of sleep troubles plus our good/bad/funnies (including a super funny about toddler love as well as a train debacle) before giving our unqualified advice to listener questions about how to help parents with their parenting issues when you are the nanny, and how to explain death to a child in a way that they understand at the age of 4. Enjoy!
Elizabeth and Andy dive into listener questions today right off the bat because there are so many great ones! They discuss therapy, sexual frustrations in a relationship, whether or not to make a long distance relationship work for your career, and then a doozy regarding how much to let your untreated bi-polar mother into your life after a traumatic childhood. Enjoy!
