Did your Spotify 2022 Wrapped consist of the soundtracks from Trolls World Tour, Brave, and Turning Red? If so, you just may be a Default Caregiver.
In this week’s episode, Tara Clark of and I dive into what it means to be to go-to parent, the one the kids seek most often to solve their problems and to be their ‘Garbage Disposal,’ the one who sacrifices their Spotify algorithm to make car trips more tenable, the one who more often sees a loss of identity as a result of parenthood.
We also chat about how Kate got her start by looking to connect with other mothers and share her observational comedy by building a social media community, how to prevent stress from becoming overwhelm since nothingness is in such short supply, and how comparison traps us while also preventing us from being conscious parents.
And also a moment discussing Mommin’ in NYC, because I can’t resist an excuse to live my glory days in Manhattan!
