Sanity check

Betsy and all her guests give me my weekly sanity check as a mom of 3 boys. I listen and think “oh thank god, it’s not just my kids” or “oh same girl!” Thank you for being open and honest about the DAILY trials of parenthood!!

Used to love it

I really used to love this podcast and found it so relatable but it’s so dang political now and the constant mask and vacc talk is exhausting. I get it’s what is happening in the world and affects how we parent but a lot of people listen to these types of podcasts for entertainment and it’s just very negative anymore. I’ve had to unfollow it again and did this the first time about a year ago during the election for the same reasons. I thought maybe they would have calmed down and it would have gotten silly and light hearted again but it’s not.

Getting a little too political and uneducated

Lately Betsy has been a little too political for my liking, she is pro-vaccine and pro-masks but loves to send her kids to any camp or school available! Just to let you know CA is one of the only states that is pushing masks soo hard, and also your Gov is wine and dinning sans mask (if you forgot). I love how your guests are sitting in silence while you borate people who are actually asking questions, and doing their research. Also Betsy stop complaining how poor you and your husband are!
