Thanks so much Anne! You know I love chatting with you – I think there’s tons of awesome nuggets in there and I plan to re-listen from time to time myself as a reminder 🙂

OMG I am BEYOND flattered. I adore Sara and this was such a fantastic interview— open and transparent, casual and REAL. Thanks for sharing this‚ such an inspiration for moms trying to juggle it all… so important for everyone to hear how NORMAL all these emotions are.
So glad you liked it. Sarah and I had a blast doing it…and what’s funny is we had to cut ourselves off…we talk about this topic REGULARLY…hmmm I see a fun podcast in our future.
I’m with you on Sarah – she’s an amazing mommy and person. Love her!

Loved this interview! I could relate to you Sarah. You are so right about knowing you have a set amount of time to do things when the kids are in school. My girls are 12 & 14 now and it gets even easier, BUT I still have to spend plenty of time with them, especially when they start wanting to be “alone” or on the computer!!!
Thanks so much for a wonderful interview Anne!
