    A Family Stay-cation?

    A Family Stay-cation?

    I am always on the look out for low cost or no cost things for single moms to do with their kids. As a single mothers we don't always have a lot of money to spend on taking trips or vacations. So during the summer we have to get creative at times to give our kids a fun vacation. I came across an article that SEEMED like a great idea until I dove into it and let's just say their ideas were not that great!

    Trauma & Our Kids

    Trauma & Our Kids

    Whether we like it or not, our children are experiencing traumas that we never had to growing up. School shootings, lock down drills, living through a pandemic and being isolated from 'normal' life for a year... it all can take its toll. Not to mention if they have experienced any other kinds of trauma. As their moms, we may not always recognize the signs of trauma in our kids and what we think is bad behavior may in fact be a trauma response. This weeks episode is all about trauma and our kids - and how we can help them through it.

    Overturning Roe v. Wade Is A Bad Idea

    Overturning Roe v. Wade Is A Bad Idea

    I know this topic is one that is VERY charged and one that many people have very strong opinions about. Myself included. Please know that I respect whatever your personal opinion is on the topic just as I would hope you would respect mine. Personally, I am very pro-choice but not only that I am very pro 'your right to choose what is best for you, your life and your family' no matter what that choice is as long as it doesn't infringe on my life.
    I will fight for your right to practice whatever religion you choose to follow, even though I am not a religious person. I will fight for your right to marry whomever makes you happy, even though I don't believe in marriage. I will fight for your right to choose to NOT have a baby for whatever reason you are choosing, even though I personally don't know if I could make that choice. The point is that we be allowed to HAVE that choice.
    Todays episode is all about why overturning Roe v. Wade would be a very bad thing and lead to problems that I don't think many have fully thought out.

    Removing Your Limiting Beliefs with Suzie Wheeler

    Removing Your Limiting Beliefs with Suzie Wheeler

    Our life consists of a bunch of beliefs and habits. Most of them come from childhood conditioning and experiences.
    What habits do you have that are getting you closer to the love you desire, the life you desire?
    Most people break their trust with themselves. Once we promise to do something a bazillion times and don't, subconsciously we have zero faith in our abilities to become more, to have more.
    We rarely question our thoughts and desires, instead we are simply attached to them.

    When Will Smith Asked 'Who Are You?'

    When Will Smith Asked 'Who Are You?'

    Everyone wants to talk about the Slap Heard 'Round the World, but instead of addressing that I want to talk about a recent article about Viola Davis and what happened when Will Smith asked her this question. Will Smith told her "I will always be that boy who's girlfriend broke up with him"... and she thought no matter her accomplishments, deep down she was a little black third grade girl who got chased home by a group of white boys. This made me stop and think... 'who am I' ... what in my past was that defining moment that influence me so profoundly that it would stick with me years and years later?

Able to relate on many levels.

When you said a different kind of tired I heard you. As a solo parent of 2 boys and one with special needs, it was a struggle after my husband passed last year. Truly a blessing to found this podcast.

Not an incubator?

Grow up. It’s not the child’s fault that a woman doesn’t use birth control, birth control and condoms, refrains completely, etc. Take responsibility for your actions. As a mother…not religious, not alt right…I find it super troublesome that you have a podcast about mothering, but are ok with women killing babies inside them, simply because they don’t want it. I hope you don’t have the same disdain for your own children. Smh.

Not knowledgeable

I am all for freedom of speech and everyone entitled to their own opinion but I will have to give 1 star in regards to her commenting on how the unvaccinated are a potentional risk to her and her kids and that it affects her so ya ---she has an opinion about it. What a bold statement to say- isn't the vaccine for the hopes to protect others not ourselves? Catch 22. You do not have the right to comment so casually about whether or not you think someone should or should not get the vaccine injected in their body. #1 that is confidential information and a violation of HIPPA #2 you are giving out medical advice and you're clearly not a doctor so to give out advice like you're less likely to die if you get the vaccine is absolutely unprofessional and unethical-- as if you did you research you will see the adverse cases from the vaccine and just how many have dropped dead after their dose of vaccine yet still are categorized under a "covid" death. Do you know everyone's medical history? Do you kno the exact ingredients of the vaccine? Do you know what spike proteins are? Do you even do your own research aside from Google before you post these life changing opinions that no one asked for? Or are you one of those sheeple who doesn't question what they're told......well in all actuality you are the road block to unity. Wake up you sleeper
