The 1000 Hours Outside Podcast

I laughed and snorted and cried and reflected through the entirely of Pam Lobley's book, Why Can't We Just Play - What I did When I Realized My Kids Were Too Busy

This podcast episode has it all. We walk through all the familiar feelings of motherhood and parenting - lonliness, hollowness, fear, pressure, competitiveness, guilt, nervousness but above all love.

Pam reminds us, in a comical way that I've rarlely seen in parenting books, that we don't get these years back. Eras end.

So how can we step off the engine train of activities? How can we follow a clear vision for our family? How can we lower expecations in a good way and remind ourselves that the overwhelm and exhaustion we feel is very normal?

I recommend Pam's book beyond reservation.
