    Let Mama Be Mama: Finding Ourselves

    Let Mama Be Mama: Finding Ourselves

    In this episode, Elizabeth & Stephanie first address a major oversight from the previous episode (we forgot to add a cooking show!), then move on to discuss the challenges of finding "me time" in a world of kids' schedules, activities, pets, cooking, cleaning, and general momming chaos.
    Being a mom often means setting everyone else's priorities before our own. But what if we take a second to remember what makes US happy? (Even if it's in that 5 minutes of alone time we get a day). Let's reflect, reconnect, and brainstorm to help us, even in small ways, find OURSELVES once again.

Enjoyable and Entertaining

I am a mom of older children and I am thoroughly enjoying this podcast! You don’t need to be a mom of small toddlers or teenagers to enjoy this... the content is relevant and smart for all to enjoy! Thank you you two!

Thanks for being real, ladies. I’ve listened to every episode and can’t wait for the next. Super funny and authentic. Makes me almost want a pet and definitely want more wine! Cheers!!

You don’t have to have kids to listen!

I don’t have children, and if you’re in the same boat as me, never fear— there is still much to enjoy about this refreshingly honest podcast! A variety of topics are covered, from mom stories to favorite shows, and the hosts, although good friends, are different enough to share various points of view. Highly recommended!
