Advice For New Moms

With great power comes great responsibility.

And as women, we have this incredible power to create human life. And the responsibility? Raising those lil babies into kind humans.

But when it’s your first rodeo, it can be a little intimidating. We all go into this with preconceived ideas and expectations of what motherhood (and parenting in general) will be like.

Are You A Relationship Score Keeper?

Keeping score in a relationship is, unfortunately, all too common. It becomes even more obvious when it’s the third time this week you’ve done dishes or you literally can’t remember the last time your partner initiated sex.

Long Distance Relationship

Shawn’s job requires him to travel a lot. Usually it’s within the States, but this past year he has almost exclusively been traveling to China.

He usually has to be there for 3-5 weeks at a time, which can put a damper on our dynamic.

And for those of you that doesn’t listen to the podcast (yet), our dynamic is that of two co-dependent dogs. (please refer to season 2 episode 2: China, please don’t take my man).

Episode # 031 – Comparison Kills

Have you ever look at someone else’s relationship, family, closet, [insert your “thing” here] and thought to yourself “dang, they really have it made.”?

Today we’re talking about how comparison can really kill your relationship and happiness in one fatal swoop. We confess what we get jealous of, how it has taken tolls on our relationships, and how we have to remind ourselves that it’s all for show when it comes to the Gram, Facebook, and wherever else you can post those deceiving little pictures.

Episode # 029 – Exercise? Extra Fries.

Today’s episode is about exercising… or lack thereof. We tell you about what it’s like working out with your spouse, and how being a competitive can really put a damper on the bonding experience that some people have when working out with their loved ones. We also talk about how our men can, and have, made us feel like we needed to hit the gym– and I promise you won’t hate them for their reasoning. Or presentation of that fact (even if we did). And finally, we’ll share how being married, or a relationship in general, does not help in the accountability department. Especially if you’re married to Marie.

And as promised, we also included an at-home, no-equipment workout for all of our interested parties. And I included a video as a demonstration on how to do some of the moves if you’re unsure what they look like.

*And maybe later on, and if anyone would even be interested, I’ll include an “Intro To The Gym” video for all you ladies and gents that want to venture into the weight room but aren’t sure where to start or what to do. –Melissa (obviously)
