Episode 061: The ever changing seasons of motherhood w/ Meagan Francis


Motherhood, like life, is a series of ever-changing seasons. There are ebbs and flows, and sometimes curveballs we didn’t expect. The key isn’t to learn how to avoid the changes, but how to roll with them.

I had the pleasure of inviting Meagan Francis on the show today, a mom of 5 and one half of the wildly popular podcast The Mom Hour. We talk about her start in the mom blogosphere and our similar takes on the often dangerous “hot mess mom” culture.

Meagan throws down a lot of truth and doesn't hold back. Our conversation was honest and open about the realities of motherhood and how to get through them without being a martyr.


  • How Meagan got started with her first blog and how it evolved over time.

  • The changes she went through last year and how she has learned to navigate through them.

  • Our conversation about chores and delegation in the house and why it doesn’t have to be as difficult as we’re making it.
