I adore spending time with these friends and their incredible children, and every time that I do so, it gets me thinking more and more about what it means to become a parent, when is the right time to make that step (if a couple decides to go that route), and how much life changes if/when a couple decides to become parents.
On this past trip, however, I took this curiosity about family planning a step further, and decided to interview my two friends, Sara and Erica, for the podcast. These two interviews have now become a 2-part miniseries about motherhood, the first of which is up today (obviously).
And let me tell you, I'm so glad that we found the time to sit down and have these conversations (while the children were napping, of course) because I learned a lot by chatting with both Sara and Erica, and I think that each of them put into words what a lot of newer parents experience when trying to figure out how to juggle all of the responsibilities that come with caring for another being.
Here's this week's episode description:
The first part of a two-part miniseries exploring modern-day motherhood! In this series, I’m talking with two different guests in two separate interviews about what it’s like to be a new (or new-ish) mother trying to find balance while exploring parental lifestyle + scheduling options.
In this first interview, my good friend, Sara, shares her experience becoming a stay-at-home mom after giving birth to her first child. We discuss why she made the choice to leave the workforce and become a stay-at-home mom (for now), how her life has changed since making this choice, and her advice for other modern-day mothers (or future mothers) trying to figure out how to make it all work and find balance in their lives.
