When Good Enough Parenting is Actually Awesome {Podcast}

Imagine yourself having coffee, or dinner, with a couple of girlfriends discussing the not-so-fun moments of parenting that make you feel like a sh*tty parent. In today’s humor-filled podcast Laura talks to two TODAY show producers about the need for more humor in the toughest job on the planet: being a parent.

Our guests, Alicia Ybarbo and Mary Ann Zoellner are Emmy Award–winning producers at NBC’s TODAY show. They are the coauthors of Sh*tty Mom: The Parenting Guide for the Rest of Us and Today’s Moms: Essentials for Surviving Baby’s First Year.

Alicia and Mary Ann have a terrific personality and you’ll instantly feel like they are your girlfriends from way back!

We also define the term “sh*tty mom” and what it means to be one. By the way, Laura is totally happy to be part of Alicia and Mary’s sh*tty mom club. We all have our moments and feel like we aren’t doing enough or we are totally doing something wrong. We, as moms, need to remember that we are doing a great job, it’s a hard job, but we cannot be so hard on ourselves all the time.

Don’t let the title scare you! We have all been there. Most of the time, what we are already doing is good enough and is actually awesome parenting!

Their First book: Sh*tty Mom: The Parenting Guide for the Rest of Us was a New York Times best seller and this second book: The Sh*tty Mom for All seasons really brings home how fun (and temporary) being a Sh*tty Mom can be.

Some of the things we discussed on the show:
