Vulnerable. That's what this episode is. In my motherhood communities, we get a lot of questions about step, or bonus parenting. I may not be a stepparents, but I am a stepchild and have been since I was 3. I wanted to open up on this episode and give a unique perspective from the viewpoint of a "bonus kid." Sometimes, the best ways to approach dif…
 
Moms are nurturers by nature and nothing feels more nurturing than providing our kids with happy lives. However, in my never-ending quest in the self-development world, I've realized that fostering happiness is not the same as constantly trying to force happiness onto my children.

We devote many episodes of this podcast to our own thinking, feeling, actions. Why do we do this? Because it is the only thing sometimes that we are able to control.

Remember the days when you didn't know everyone's opinion about everything and they didn't know your opinion about everything either? The good old days.

In this week’s podcast, I semi-plagiarize from a recent summary of sex differences in ASD, written by Drs. Meng-Chuan Lai and Peter Szatmari from the University of Toronto. They delve into why more males are diagnosed with females, and differences in the presentation of those features of ASD that differ between males and females. These include camo…
 
Times may be changing, but homemaking is still important. Why? Because your home is more than the cleaning, the cooking, the momming. A home is what happens inside and outside the walls, separate from the material world. Our homes are intangible, a feeling more than anything. That never stops being important. So what does that mean for modern moms …

We will talk about this and…
