Owning Your Motherhood :: Erin Moon and Courtney Cleveland [Ep 325]

May 3, 2021 | 4 comments

Long-time friends Erin Moon and Courtney Cleveland join me to share their motherhood stories and how they’ve found their identity as moms separate from motherhood stereotypes. 

There are so many ways to be a good mom and what it looks like for you doesn’t look like it does for me. And I really had to let go of the idea that I had to be the same kind of mother as everyone else… It was so freeing and it seems so simple. I mean, that’s not even how humanity works. So why would motherhood be that way?

We talk about mom superpowers, viewing dinner as optional food exposure and the ridiculousness of keeping track of socks for multiple kids. Listen and laugh along with us as we take light hearted views on the daily grind of motherhood. I’m sure you will relate. 

Don’t Miss: Near the end Erin shares a great idea for creating your own “fake Mother’s Day” on a different day from the actual holiday that I’m totally going to try. 

Happy Mother’s Day to you all! I pray you feel celebrated for all the unique gifts you bring into motherhood.

    I loved this episode! It is so nice to hear from mothers about what it is like to daily be a mother. It was refreshing to hear their joys and struggles without also hearing about the book they are launching or the product that is sweeping the nation. As encouraging as those stories are, sometimes they make me feel like being a SAHM really isn’t enough. This episode felt like going out for coffee with friends and laughing about/celebrating motherhood. I think we all need more of that this year!

    This was great – thanks, Heather! It is always good for me to remember that we are all people – good at some things, not rocking all the things and all kids are quirky. Thank you and yes, more conversations like this would be great (although I enjoy all the other ones as well). I appreciate your encouragement!
