This week we are deconstructing our episode from last week with Angie Martin.  If you haven’t listened to that episode, go ahead and download Episode 53. This week we will be talking about our highs and lows, confidence in ourselves as mothers, and the “mom rhetoric” and were we fit in (or do we?).

Listen as Liz & Kate share:

  • High: Kids understanding you can’t be everywhere all the time
  • High: Stranger danger: lessons seem to be paying off!
  • Confidence in our mothering: have we gotten it yet?
  • Social Media: benefits and pitfalls
  • Involving kids in setting goals for family.
  • Mom Rhetoric: ditch the stereotypes and just be YOU.
  • Mother’s have bent enough, it’s time for society and culture to change.
