Ep. 267 – Advocating for Your Child Even When It’s Hard
August 14, 2023
Shanna talks about advocating for her daughter even though it wasn’t the most comfortable thing for her to do, and Laura reports on her son’s post-ear-tube surgery progress, including how it has been affecting his sleep at night. Also, in the special segment “They Said What?!” they discuss the funny, outrageous or offensive things people have said to them recently about parenting, including the topics of small talk with strangers at parties and in the locker room. Finally, they share their BFPs and BFNs for the week. Shanna’s kids are 4.5 and 7 years old, and Laura’s kids are 4.5 years old and 2.5 years old.
