Very interested

I am the first borrower from my local library of the Becoming mama book, and found the link for this podcast in the back. Just listened to my first episode on Montessori for toddlers. I like the positive tone and wide variety of topics.

Not good boooo ,

Love this podcast, we aren’t alone!

As a stay at home mom of young twin girls I’m always in the trenches of motherhood! Right now I don’t have other mothers to confide in face to face. It’s so comforting to hear other mothers talk about motherhood and make me feel understood and not alone. Learning about others experiences and ideas is also so fun. Go mamas! What an amazing club to be a member of.

Love this podcast

So many episodes of this end with me choking back tears. I love hearing others talk about Motherhood and what it means to them, and Liz asks such great questions. Keep talking about hard things! The Kristen Bell episode prompted me to write this...it was so meaningful. Also - PLEASE interview Amy Schumer! 🙌❤️
