Elizabeth and Vanessa share their good/bad/funnies (Sitting up on own! Love of plants! / Unravelling the sick perks! A long toddler instructions list! / You want ice cream, you got it! Not interested in what’s for dinner!) Then they give their unqualified advice to listener questions about how to navigate a former friendship for the sake of the kids, which guardians to choose for your children, how to handle awkward family christmases that aren’t good influences for children, what’s the appeal of unmedicated birth, whether to continue a blog about motherhood and if it’s disrespecting your child’s privacy, how to explain makeup to a three year old without guiding him/her into patriarchal stereotypes, how to work from home as a mother and structure your days, and what to do with a facebook happy mother in law whose political views are offensive?
Elizabeth and Vanessa discuss how life perspective gives us, well… perspective! They give their unqualified advice to listener questions about how to set “birth time” boundaries with a best friend, whether to trust an OBGYN who is playing “fast and loose” with the Clomid :), what gift to give to a friend to make car trips with her toddler a little easier, how to navigate toddler street safety with your spouse who is not on the same page, what to do about a friend who is taking advantage of your generosity as a babysitter, and how to decide when to take the plunge with pregnancy number two after having suffered from PPD? Enjoy!
Elizabeth and Vanessa discuss what exactly the term “laying pipe” might mean (Vanessa’s still not quite clear…) and then their good/bad/funnies! After that they give their unqualified advice to listener questions about what things to consider in your life to prepare to start trying to get pregnant – financially, emotionally and physically, and how to navigate a friend who always has negative “just you wait” advice when it comes to motherhood? Enjoy!
To kick off another super happy snappy podcast, Elizabeth dives into her crippling fear about death (don’t worry, she’s going to a therapist!) before she and Vanessa share their good/bad/funnies (Feeling Feelings! Camping Success!/ Sleep Troubles For Both!/ Mama Went Poo! Oliver’s “Bits”!) Then they give their unqualified advice to listener questions about how to handle family’s annoying comments comparing your baby to a cousin, what to do about a friendship that doesn’t quite fit in with your life since becoming a mother, and what is our take on around the house nudity? Enjoy!
Elizabeth and Vanessa discuss their good, bad, funnies (routines! dog and kid walk! / Prolapse! tantrums!/ pumping noise! Penis butt! ) before really going big on a fantastic listener question about spanking, and whether there is a better way to discipline? Enjoy!
