Another podcast from the newly-mommy'd Elizabeth Laime - host of Totally Laime and Totally Married! Why? because there's no bigger melting pot of emotions than motherhood and that needs to be broadcasted! Totally Mommy is an honest discussion about all the good, the bad, and the funny that being a mom has to offer. Write in with questions & tune in between diaper changes every Wednesday!
146 - Thank You And We Love You!
To all of our listeners - thank you from the bottom of our hearts (and wine glasses) for being along for this incredible podcast (life?) journey. You've taught us so much about being better mothers and humans and that compassion and kindness and love conquer all. With incredible parents like you out there, our children are in good hands and the future is bright! We'll think of you with gratitude for every good/bad/funny to be. With so much love and respect - Elizabeth and Vanessa.

Probably my favorite podcast ever
Becoming a mother is no joke and I was so lucky to discover this podcast soon after becoming one. Since then, over 3 years ago, I’ve listened to every episode twice - once after my first born and again after my second. Elizabeth is hilarious, comforting, poignant, and just plain entertaining - just what this new mama needed (twice). I miss this show (and all the other laime podcasts) a ton!
Late to the game...
Just found this Podcast through Coffee and crumbs. I am bummed that I am late to the game and it looks like this podcast no longer has any new episodes… But that just means I'm starting from the beginning and I love it. I'm a working mom and it is so nice to have this type of real talk and mom talk. I am also about to check out their other podcasts. Anyways love it!
Love this podcast!
I love this podcast! So entertaining. Thank you for bringing light to my days!
