Totally Mommy
8 - Testing Boundaries w/ LeeLee Pitts!

Elizabeth's dear friend Leelee is back co-hosting this week and shares The Good (her lil man turned 1! And Elizabeth had an awesome baby shower), The Bad (Leelee's daughter has been out of sorts, Elizabeth's vulva is no beuno) and The Funny (Leelee's husband had a colorful description of their daughter's behavior, Elizabeth needed snack time during a rock show). Then Leelee has some awesome advice (Elizabeth's is mediocre at best :) to listener questions regarding gender disappointment in pregnancy, dealing with sticky Mother In Law situations, how to handle a "gun situation" with the in laws, and what to do when one child resents the other for the amount of attention he requires. Enjoy!

Fantastic Mommy cohost for today is comedy actress Stephanie Escajeda! She and Elizabeth discuss The Good: (Joining in the parent club, Elizabeth having forgotten how hard it was to get pregnant) The Bad: (Being sick when your kid is sick means you don't get to be sick!) and The Funny: (Stephanie's daughter "acting", Elizabeth's pregnancy flirting with a motorcycle dude). Then they answer listener questions about placenta encapsulation, how to avoid nosy people when you are struggling with fertility, and whether or not to drink during the two week wait between ovulation and plus sign. Enjoy!

6 - Define Vulva w/ Amy Biedel!

Elizabeth's long time friend and soul sister in sensitivity & dog rescue is our co-host today! Actress, singer and doula AMY BEIDEL came on and discussed the good (getting certified in childbirth education) the bad (her son picking up her less than pride-filled mannerisms, Elizabeth's swollen undercarriage) and the funny (her three year old being obsessed with anatomy, Elizabeth crying over a touch being the wrong kind). Then they discuss why Amy thinks one of their dog rescue foibles led to her pregnancy before giving their unqualified advice to listener questions about their thoughts on circumcision, how to navigate fertility testing, how to deal with anxiety about pregnancy weight gain, and how to manage a friendship when you are in mommy-ville and she wants you to get drunk at her wedding. Enjoy!

She's a hilarious comedy performer and actress, and has such a great, balanced insight into motherhood - mama to three, MORGAN WALSH comes on and we discuss the good (pizza hugs), the bad (skin problems), and the funny (lunchbox boobs) plus a discussion about cooking with the kids and then she and Elizabeth answer listener questions about whether or not you have to know 100% that you want kids, and whether or not to remain in a friendship with someone who struggles with alcoholism as a new mother. Enjoy!
