    Heart Hero Story #2: Lilliana

    Heart Hero Story #2: Lilliana

    TRIGGER WARNING: This story does talk about loss of a child.

    On part two of this month's "Heart Hero Story" series I talk to Chanel who is the mother of a Heart Angel, Lilliana. Initially, Chanel's daughter was diagnosed prenatally with some heart defects as well as Heterotaxy Syndrome. After being born 5 weeks early, it was later discovered that Lilliana had more heart defects than what was told to Chanel prior to giving birth. But thanks to Chanel's constant research and relentless advocacy for her child, Lilliana was able to get treated at one of the best hospitals in the world for cardiac surgery which allowed Chanel and more of Lilliana's loved ones more time with her before becoming a Heart Angel a little over 2 years later.

    Heart Hero Story #1: Wade

    Heart Hero Story #1: Wade

    We're celebrating Heart Month all February long here on Weird Mom by talking to parents of heart heroes and talking about their experiences having a child effected by CHD (congenital heart defect). This week, I take the time to share the story of my own heart hero: Wade. A chance visit to the Children's Hospital emergency room sparked a whirlwind for me as a fresh new momma. Can you believe all of this took place in one month, one month I already had off from work for maternity leave? God is definitely good.

    Ep. 3.9: Screen Time & Pandemic Parenting feat. Deborah Copperud and Katie Curler from It's My Screen Time Too

    Ep. 3.9: Screen Time & Pandemic Parenting feat. Deborah Copperud and Katie Curler from It's My Screen Time Too

    How much screen time does your child get each day? This is a question seen often in the mom groups around the interwebs. While the amount of time is up for debate, it doesn't have to all be letting your child sit like a zombie in front of the screen. On this episode I talk with Deborah Copperud and Katie Curler who host a podcast called "It's My Screen Time Too" where they watch children's programming and rate it on "watchability" for grown-ups. While quantity of screen time does come up in our conversation, Deborah and Katie really hone in on how parents can make screen time quality. This is especially important as screen time is likely been more extended during this pandemic.

    Ep. 3.8: Kids Are Actually Humans feat. Karena Skibinski

    Ep. 3.8: Kids Are Actually Humans feat. Karena Skibinski

    I'll say it once and I'll say it again: kids are growing humans. Being a kid does not last forever and yet, we often times get caught up in parenting and forget that it's just a stage and not the end result of our children's lives. Furthermore, kids are not our humans to own but our humans to take care of nurture. They go at their own pace because they are individuals that are separate from us. This was a huge part of my conversation with Karena Skibinski (host of "What About the Mama?" podcast). Controlling things when it comes to parenting is just so stressful and it'd serve you to relax a little bit and be prepared to go with the flow.

    Ep. 3.7: Married Elder Teens Make It 10 Years feat. Robert Washington

    Ep. 3.7: Married Elder Teens Make It 10 Years feat. Robert Washington

    Marriage, amirite? Just like parenthood, there are SO many things people just don't talk about when it comes to having a successful, long-lasting one. Arguably, people might even say less about marriage because it is really such a puzzle to find what works for you and your partner. On this week's episode, I invited my husband Robert back to talk about how the heck two elder teens (since we got married at eighteen and nineteen-years old) made it to year ten. If we're being honest, we don't even know but we're here to share some things we wish we would've known  beforehand and things we've learned along the way. 

    Disclaimer: we are by no means saying "do these things or you won't be successful"; all things shared in this episode are our opinions. All we want to do is shed light on a different perspective of marriage in hopes that it may help someone out there.

Give it a listen... if you’re weird enough!

I love this podcast and Chelsie. Fun, relatable, informative resource. Supports mothers to be our most authentic selves and all the juicy weirdness that entails, and to get away from the monotonous, performative mothering we see too much elsewhere. As a mom I tune in to feel in good company. You should too!

Fun parenting podcast

Weird mom is a very fun listen. I like Chelsie's perspective, humor, and relatability.

Totally relatable!

Christie’s experiences as a mom and a black woman are intriguing. She has a way of making you comfortable, even with the uncomfortable stuff. You want to pay attention to her story.

Also I agree with a previous comment: the opening is adorable (smiling-ear-to-ear adorable)!
