Why can’t I get on the same love-language page as my spouse? How can I Struggle WELL when my husband comes home from long work trips? What podcast will I listen to now that MSW is ending?! Em is getting one step closer to beekeeping, Kate has a cleaning service...
It’s the shows 7th Birthday! Struggs wrote in with interview questions for us to answer. We are so thankful for our relationship with each other and for the relationship with have with you all! We hope you love this one as much and we loved recording it.
This week we are bringing you a blast from the past with the very first Problem Solved episode! Emily and Rebecca hadn’t met in real life yet (way back in 2016) and it was the beginning of a less lonely podcasting career for Em + you’ll hear a partial Patreon episode that went out just this week. If you want to join the Patreon community, head on over here to receive this full episode and many many more! You’ll also get the unedited video version of each Patreon episode if you want to see all of the bloopers before your very eyes. You won’t regret it, see you soon!
Does it sound appealing to be let off the hook for some mom-related responsibilities? This is the episode for you. Struggs have so many concerns this week and the general theme is burnout. There is a whole lot going on in the world right now and Struggs asked us to ‘go there” so we did! Rebecca is feeling outraged regarding news but shares her own solution with listeners, Em shares the latest way she is Struggling Well with a teenage daughter and Kate is just straight struggling with grief so the ladies gracefully meet her where she’s at. We have THE way to simplify the after school routine, we solved your husbands snoring and we discuss this question: can you be friends with your kids?
Have you ever heard directly from God? How is reemerging back into public going where you are? Those two things are not related but are equally interesting and they are both covered in this chat!
Strugg problems are solved a mile a minute in this episode. Problems like: kids eating non-stop now that they’re home more, piles everywhere, how to gracefully embrace new family members & the dreaded late summer bedtimes.
Why is it so hard to find lyrically appropriate music for kids that’s actually good? How can I navigate a relationship with a suicidal friend? How can I help my kiddo struggle well through a huge disappointment? Help me through the intense energy shift (which is just a nice phrase for total meltdown) at certain times of day.
We solve these and so many more listener problems in this episode. We couldn’t get to all of them, but there were so many relatable ones! We decided we want to bring this segment back every month and start bringing on experts to help us solve them. If you have problems you want solved, email email@example.com and we may get to yours on the next Problem Solved!
Would you like to have an approach to cleaning that and will keep your mind calm, give your kids freedom to play AND teach them responsibility? Well, I am so excited for you to listen to this episode then!
The three of us have such different ways that we manage cleaning the house. I am in the ABC (always be cleaning) camp which is downright exhausting. Rebecca has genius tips about zoning your home that could not be more simple and Kate has a tip that will put a stop to the constantly-giving-direction-to-family-members fatigue.
