006 | Perception vs. Reality, Parenting Adults | The Transitional Mom Podcast

12/9/2019
More
Who would have thought parenting would get more difficult when your kids become adults? I sure as hell didn't… When they're so close to becoming an adult and then they're in the midst of early adulting, it is hard to remember they don't need us to fix everything or take away all of their pain. Sometimes holding space is the only immediate solution. The rest is not for us to figure out. Cheers. Thanks for listening!

005 | No Perfect Mom | The Transitional Mom Podcast

12/2/2019
More
Seriously, I thought I had this mom thing in the bag before I became I even became one myself. Then the mom thing happened and then they grew up or maybe I grew up. Parenting and perfect should never go in the same sentence. There's no such thing as a perfect mom, nor do you want to be one, trust me! Cheers. Thanks for listening!

004 | Coparenting Part II | The Transitional Mom Podcast

11/25/2019
More
I thought co parenting the second time around would be easier, especially understanding the approach my (now) husband and his ex wife wanted to do together. And yet, sometimes emotions run off in a direction we don't expect or when you're in the moment what you want to do and what you actually do differ greatly. Kids give you a run for your money and sometimes the frustration seems never ending. Wishing hard might work; however, everyone reacts and response differently when shit hits the...

003 | Coparenting Part I | The Transitional Mom Podcast

11/18/2019
More
When you lean into co parenting and it works until it doesn't anymore. What do you do? There's only so much you can control and the best you can do is doing everything you can to stay consistent. Life changed for us when more humans entered the world. The love for all involved wasn't lost; however, life changed and we didn't adapt well to the change. Co parenting is possible for all. I truly believe it, especially if you're committed to wanting something different and willing to put in the...

002 | Single Parent Does NOT Equal 100% Responsibility | The Transitional Mom Podcast

11/11/2019
More
Single parenting is hard. Hell, parenting is hard. But single parenting doesn't = 100% kid responsibility. Creating boundaries are important even when we don't feel the other parent won't do whatever it is as well as we can. As long as saying 'no' or 'not this time' won't create a situation that would physically or emotionally hurt our children or saying it's okay to say 'no' or 'maybe another time.' Proactive negotiation can also help define boundaries. When we go in always saying 'yes'...

001 | No Instructions in Parenting and Partnerships | The Transitional Mom Podcast

11/4/2019
More
A little early exploration of parenting and relationships. Just because you have kids together doesn't mean you are partners or family. Pieces and parts might feel like it; however, we need to come into a relationship at 100%. Doing so doesn't make us bad, it just means we're not ready. Life gets real and things don't turn out as planned, so we live, learn, move on and just keep in mind that there are no instructions to parenting or relationships and sometimes doing the best you can is all...

Parenting is challenging. Whomever told you it wasn't, lied! Single parenting is even more challenging and when you transition into co-parenting and step parenting - worlds connect and collide. Hi, I'm Stacy and I find people fascinating and life as a parent, fabulous (most days)! I've navigated parenting, single parenting, co parenting (twice) and step parenting. Some days I really mess up the parenting thing and other days I rock it. Focused on creating a community through real and raw and...
