More in common than I thought

I’m loving this podcast! A friend of mine suggested it to me and I wasn’t sure it was for me because I didn’t have any premmies or multiple births.

But it doesn’t matter!

I’m learning so much from these wonderful women on how just to be a better person. And we have more in common than I thought.

My son has autism, and while he’s quite high functioning, there are still those moments we all share such as despairing about lack of friends, or crying in the shower when it all gets too much.

Thank you Kate and Mandy for your infectious laughs; for advocating so fiercely for your kids; and for sharing the highs and lows. I especially love the ‘what made you laugh/cry’ at the end of each podcast.

You two would be my ideal dinner party guests! 🥰🥰😂🤣

Every parent needs these women in their ears!

I cry and laugh every Thursday! Mandy and Kate you’re an inspiration, joy and blessing to every listener! I can’t wait to see you both live at the comedy store!

Louise Wray ,

Thank you!

This is the first time in 5 years I have felt like I have started to deal with my PTSD from the birth of my twins at 29 weeks and being in NICU for three months and then going on to a chromosome deletion diagnosis amongst many other diagnosis’s. Thanks Ladies. I am thoroughly enjoying your podcasts! I am crying (actually blubbering) and laughing in every episode. From my experiences I can relate to both of you.
