Big Time Adulting on Let’s Discuss!

“Get yourself a snack and have a great day!”

On this week’s Let’s Discuss, Caitlin Murray of Big Time Adulting joins me to discuss why toddlers treat people like a**holes.

We talk about other stuff, of course! We discuss how hanger is a real emotion and how it presents in children and adults alike; how Caitlin and I both, if we aren’t eating, we are thinking about the next time we get to eat; and the trauma that is taking energetic and beautifully wild children out in public spaces.

We also discuss building validating communities where we can vent, seek credible advice (note I said, “seek,” not where we receive unsolicited advice), and be vulnerable. And, as always, boundaries get discussed, because we all need them.

Spring 2023!

Had so many DMs about this one, I had to put it on the grid!

Yesterday was the first day back to campus for KU! Come on, Spring 2023!

Enjoy our facilities team being hilarious and clever on their toilet signs. I’ve always loved this one, finally had to share it!

Christmas in January…

Bought it. Hid it in my office. Fully forgot about it until January 13th.

YourGoodEnoughMomma made it through the holidays and also never gave her husband his Christmas gift!

Have you listened to #LetsDiscussWithMeg, Surviving the Holidays, Parts I & II yet?

I know it’s January, and also, it’s never too early to get mentally prepped for 2023.

Only 345 more sleeps ‘til Christmas…

It’s important not to judge…

The important thing is not to judge, kind of overall, right?

More genius from @glennondoyle and #WeCanDoHardThings!

As I always end the show, taken from #TedLasso, Be Curious, Not Judgmental!

Spring Semester, let’s go!

And we’re back!

Almost. 😉

Prepping for my new semester at KU, teaching SW 811: Clinical Practice Strategies II!

I’ll be using a number of texts, including the DBT Skills Training Manual by #MarshaLinehan and the Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders by Barlow, et. al. I am thrilled to spend some time in these texts and to have another opportunity to learn and grow alongside future social workers! Let’s go! Rock Chalk!

For 2023!

Borrowed from friend of the pod, @drjennhardy, I’m not a fan of giving advice, especially on social media, but here’s one I’ll give you for free!

Follow more therapists on @instagram!

If you’re a mental health professional, please drop a note below in comments so my followers can check out what you have to offer! Let us know if you specialize in a topic, if you have certain areas of expertise, or if you have a broader scope of discussion.

I can’t wait to hear from you all!

Modern Mom Probs | Let’s Discuss!

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!

Out Of Office!

Well, Your Good Enough Momma was 2/5 for Santa’s presents fitting in our stockings. What can ya do? 🤷🏼‍♀️

Wishing you pockets of joy, non sequitur championships, mini breaks to the grocery store, and solid exit strategies this holiday season, whatever your celebratory plans may be.

I will miss y’all for a few days but will be out of office for the Christmas holiday!

Much Love, #YourGoodEnoughMomma

Let go…

Easier said that done, but we all have to start somewhere!

One whole year!

#LetsDiscussWithMeg has cleared the 1 Year mark! Over a year of sharing with y’all, and we have so much further to go!

Big thanks to everyone who has listened, supported, sent messages, and of course, to my sponsors! @yumblekids @myboogieboard @momandaofficial
