Can We Be Happier as Moms?

Can We Be Happier as Moms?

Is motherhood supposed to be nonstop fun? And if it's not, are we doing it wrong? We asked our listeners what having a "happy motherhood" means to them.

What does it mean to have "happy motherhood?" And is it even a realistic goal to have, given the ups and downs of being a parent? We asked our listeners about their tips to help new parents have a "happier" first year.

Molly and Blaire discuss:

  • The perils of Mom Instagram
  • Ways to make extra room for joy in your early motherhood
  • How to sit in discomfort

Managing your expectations was a key theme in the answers we got - so many moms want everything to be perfect, so they are inevitably disappointed when they don't get their twins out the door in matching outfits every single morning! But guess what? No one is perfect, even though it may seem every other mom on Earth has it more together than you.
