This week we are deconstructing our episode with Melanie Lippman. If you haven’t heard, go back and download Episode 45 to learn about how she listened to her intuition and didn’t back down while advocating for her child (even though tears were involved). Tune in today to hear our highs and lows, how we’ve attempted to put ego aside, and admitting the bad habits that show up in our kids.


Listen as Liz & Kate share:

  • High: Putting our mom-self out there and it working out!
  • Low: Exhaustion and lack of well-rounded nutrition while growing a human.
  • How we put our ego aside as moms.
  • When our experiences don’t live up to our expectations.
  • Children should have warning lights.
  • Bad habits our children are picking up from us.
  • When we’ve had to advocate for our children.
  • Personal experience with early intervention evaluations & services.
  • Being a passive parent.
  • Braces for a 7 year old?!
