Totally Laime, Totally Married and Totally Mommy are the podcast brainchildren of comedy person Elizabeth Laime. Totally Laime is about asking the most important people in comedy the least important questions, Totally Married chronicles Elizabeth and her husband Andy's adventures in marriage (plus unqualified advice to listener questions!) and Totally Mommy is an honest discussion about Motherhood between newly-mommied Elizabeth and her talented parent friends. 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!
Well Laimewads, we apologize. Our fantastic guest today – comedy writer, humanitarian, cook extraordinaire CORINNE MARSHALL came on and it took Elizabeth a full 50 minutes to ask her about her writing career with Playgirl! WTF?! Snafu accounted for this is a super fun discussion about learning to drive at 24, entering domestic bliss, her change of heart after interviewing to volunteer at an ER and the big cliffhanger is… will Corinne deliver Elizabeth’s baby during this podcast? Tune in to find out. Enjoy!
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?
