Elizabeth and Andy discuss the recent doc that helped her feel that there is a god in this otherwise seemingly dumpster fire of an existence in Trumpland! An added bonus of discussion about sexual assault, and the recent scandals. Then they give their unqualified advice to listener questions about whether or not to take depression meds during pregnancy, how to heal hurt feelings over a pregnancy reveal, and how to find a therapist who is effective when you have no time and no money? Enjoy!
Elizabeth and Andy discuss their future podcasting endeavors as well as the moments in life that make them feel most content/present! Then they give their unqualified advice to listener questions about dealing with an immature roommate who won’t take responsibility for her actions, and how to navigate a parenting challenge with a partner who doesn’t see eye to eye with you on what to do? Enjoy!
To all of our listeners – thank you from the bottom of our hearts (and wine glasses) for being along for this incredible podcast (life?) journey. You’ve taught us so much about being better mothers and humans and that compassion and kindness and love conquer all. With incredible parents like you out there, our children are in good hands and the future is bright! We’ll think of you with gratitude for every good/bad/funny to be. With so much love and respect – Elizabeth and Vanessa.
Elizabeth and Vanessa get into our very last questions – giving their unqualified advice to listeners about whether or not to get involved with an infant niece when your brother has become an absentee dad, how to handle precocious children who comment on “big tummies”, the love is there in droves, but when does the “like” kick in with newborns, how to address severing ties with a toxic mother to your child now or in the future, whether to invite out of town family to a baby shower, what’s more important – healthy food or non religious pre school, how to navigate choosing a baby name that is more of a nickname, how to broach the subject of periods with young daughters, and what are the first steps to take when you first get a positive pregnancy test? Enjoy!
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?
