2.2 DREW RIOS on Unapologetically Pursuing Greatness
We are absolutely thrilled to have our friend Drew Rios of Rogue and Fox Floral Co on the pod today! Many of you know her as the energetic, confident, beautiful friend of MOMHOOD we've all gotten to know from the warm energy she radiates over instagram....but that is only just a small portion of who this powerhouse (floral house) entrepreneur is. From banking to nursing to clothing design to going back to her roots (literally)-- Drew's story is one of inspiration, triumph and redemption. We talk about birth order and upbringing, confronting the truth, standing up for what you believe in, walking away from everything, starting over, her greatest accomplishment, breaking the rules, marriage, foreplay and that's just half of it! We learn Drew Rios is a woman who follows her passion above all else. She is unapologetic about being exactly who she is--- even if it's her need to go rogue from the mundane. There is nothing ordinary about her story so buckle up babes.  Follow Drew at @RogueandFox or by visiting her website RogueandFoxFloral.com  You can follow us on Instagram @MomhoodShow @BrandiMilloy @OrlyShani and by joining our private Momhood FB group.

50. Orly's Daughter Just Called Her Out
Ever been called out by your kid... on your parenting...and you know they're right? What did you do? Orly's daughter straight up called her out on something and we get into it.  If you could go back to that instance and say or do something differently, would you? Why do we parent the way we parent? How much of what we say and do is learned from our parents and how they parented us? How do you know what is best, right or wrong? And what role does our subconscious mind play in how we make decisions in our home?  We really go down the rabbit hole with this one and dig deep to figure out clarity and ultimately what is best for us.  Links from this Episode: LACY PHILLIPS - https://tobemagnetic.com LACY's PODCAST - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/expanded-podcast-with-lacy-phillips/id1419732648 If you enjoy what we share each week and get something out of the content we create together, we would love to see your support for the podcast!

47. Accepting & Overcoming POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION w/ ALI LEVINE
In today's interview we are joined by celebrity stylist and mom of two, Ali Levine. In this real and raw conversation Ali talks about her experience with postpartum depression-how it felt, what she thinks contributed to it, her lowest moments, how she got help, what worked for her, and what she did differently this time around when she had her second daughter.  Most importantly, this conversation is about the importance of sharing postpartum depression stories especially because it affects each person differently, understanding it's more common than you think, that you are never alone and learning what to do if you ever find yourself or a friend feeling depressed after baby. This episode is super powerful and full of tools anyone can use.

46. BRANDI Interviews Her Husband, Mr. A (aka Mr. Amazing)!
We've been wanting to interview our husbands for-ev-er! What better way to learn a little more about us, our lives and our marriages than from our significant others?! Brandi had the opportunity to interview her husband, Chris and the conversation feels like we're all a fly on the wall in their home. It's totally unfiltered, off the cuff, real and raw banter between husband and wife and it doesn't get any better than this! We strongly encourage you to try this out with your partner as a way to connect and do a little relationship "check-in". The questions they discuss are below but you can totally come up with ones of your own. Questions to Ask Your Partner: What is your favorite thing about being married? When you were younger what did you think marriage would look like? What was your favorite part of our wedding day? What is your favorite thing I do for you? How do you show me that you love me? How do I show you that I love you? What kind of mom/dad am I? What do you think our kids think of us? What do you think their favorite thing to do with us is? What is your favorite memory of our relationship? If we had a week alone (and we weren't experiencing a pandemic) what would we do? What is my most annoying trait? Where do you see our marriage in 5 years? in 10 years? in 20 years? What are you excited about most when it comes to the future?

42. How to POTTY TRAIN at 6 Months & Raise Independent Children w/ MONIQUE SAMUELS
When we sat down with Bravo’s Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels it was to talk about her book, “Potty Training Mommy & Daddy: A Guide for Introducing Infant Potty Training As Early As 6 Months.” But within minutes of our conversation it was hugely apparent that this interview was so much more than just how to get our babies potty trained at a young age. This conversation goes deep into purposeful parenting and how potty training as young as 6 months is just one example of the ways we can foster independence in our children. There are so many powerful moments in this interview where Monique shares her parenting perspective and how every day there are things we can do in our own homes with our children that matter and make a difference.  Follow Monique on Instagram @mrsmoniquesamuels @notforlazymoms @milaeveessentials  Visit her website to purchase her book https://shop.notforlazymoms.com  Shop Essential Oils www.milaeveessentials.com  Monique’s Must Have Badgal Mascara: https://tinyurl.com/y3x8b83f Monique’s makeup remover, raw organic, unrefined, cold pressed coconut oil: https://tinyurl.com/yxzxuk93 Orly’s Brow Gel https://bit.ly/3gQyj8X  Brandi’s Handcrafted Wood Toys https://www.harlowandcruz.com/  Join us every Friday during our LIVE Happy Hour Episode for cocktails and conversation at 3:30pm PST on IG LIVE @MOMHOODSHOW https://www.instagram.com/momhoodshow/  Be a part of our private FB group by searching MOMHOOD and follow Brandi on Instagram @BrandiMilloy https://www.instagram.com/brandimilloy/ and Orly on Instagram @OrlyShani https://www.instagram.com/orlyshani/

Today Orly and Brandi share the details of their VERY different birth-stories; Milly + Sonny /  Conor + Blake The details of these stories vary from magical and exciting, to difficult and disappointing but they are each beautiful in their own way. We hope that by sharing our birth-stories you will be reminded that there is NO right way. There will be some tears (both happy and sad) because there's something cathartic about sharing the moment you became a mom! Reliving it can be such an empowering excersize...and if it didn't go as you hoped? you might need to mourn that loss. Voice your disappointment in the experience you wanted, but DID NOT have... and then celebrate the one you did! Because it brought you here. We hope this episode will encourage all of you to share your birth story. We created MOMHOOD partly because of the no-judgement community we wanted to provide and also for the relationships we hope to nurture among our “hood”.

Today we have on Eve Rodsky, the NY Times Best Selling Author of Fair Play, a book changing lives one task at a time! The three of us sat on the floor in Eve's house, and had an incredible and honest discussion about the "Invisible Work" that women do in the home. The idea that men's time is FINITE and women's is INFINITE has lead to an imbalance at home which can erode a marriage from the inside out. Eve's book is a practical system... well really it's a game! A card game that you play with your partner to restructure how you BOTH think about the home and you responsibility in it. ENJOY!!
