Ashley and Rebecca from The Crohn's & Colitis Dietitians talk about all things IBD-related. In this episode, we are joined by our very own Christa Smith, another IBD specialized dietitian, who we have loved working with, and her 3 year old daughter, Millie.

**Note: In this episode we had many interruptions in internet connection so we tried to salvage what we can. This is why it sounds like you are coming into it mid conversation. Enjoy.

0-9:00
-We enjoy some insights from Christa's daughter. We really appreciate her honest answer when asked if she likes broccoli: "I do but I don't"
-ASMR: sounds we enjoy.. or don't
-We're impressed by the confidence of 3 year olds!

9:00-18:00
-Christa, a busy mom who wears many hats,  talks about what she does when she feels overwhelmed. She tunes out unnecessary noises and tasks, prioritizes and focuses on issues of most importance
- Christa discusses how these parenting challenges can be rewarding
-We agree that asking for help can be difficult. A lot of the time we think, "I'll figure it out on my own."
- Dealing with the ups and downs of IBD made Christa realize that she does need to ask for help.

19:00- 28:00
-Christa talks about the postpartum period and how she paces herself and provides herself with more grace and patience.
-Christa talks about raising children and how they are expanding their family to 4 kids!

28:00- 35:00
- Christa talks about IBD during pregnancy- what her experience was like, the treatments she went through, and why she felt like it was worth the difficulties and unknown.
- We remember when Christa first met Ashley.

35:00- 46:37
- ASMR and movie theaters
- Ashley talks about how she loves her noise cancelling headphones because certain sounds really bother her.
- We talk about icebreakers and what we do and don't like about them
