Great podcast! Been listening for 5+ years now. Love the practical advice of parenting little kids in their earlier episodes (like episodes 1 through...oh...300 or so, they have so much GOOD and unique content!) and am loving the more theoretical advice and content of parenting older kids in their more recent episodes as well as seeing real moms shift from little kid focus to raising big kids and how that affects them as people. Love this show, look forward to it every week.

This is the first podcast I listened to on Castbox! I just listened to episode 299 and it made me feel really good about the way a lot of things are going in my house. Thank you so much! My husband and I have six kids ranging from 10 months to 9 years. Our youngest daughter was born at the start of the pandemic so everything has been a big adjustment.

hi guys! I wanted to share with you some funny facts and a few tie ins to this episode. I am a fairly new listener but I love you guys and your chemistry! my favorite podcast so far! anyways, I have never taken much interest in the Royal family, and as you were all talking about celebrity pregnancy buddies I remembered that Kate and I were pregnant at the same time! Honestly I didn't pay much attention to this, but my husband and I kept hoping that they didn't steal our name - or everyone would think WE copied THEM! my son's due date was May 9 and he ended up being born on April 23, same as Louis! and of course they wait days to announce, so we were in suspense. We named our son Marshall so they do not share a name. another fun fact is that our other name for Marshall was Harrison! little Archie's middle name. I figured you guys would find all of that a little interesting. Have an awesome day!
