"Yes that but then there's other stuff that i'm pretty sure the summer camp spreadsheet would not happen if it were not me doing it. One thing that we have found works well is to also divide based on energy. So i am basically terrible at night. I mean i when he's not here. I by default have to handle it. And oddly i think the kids know terrible and kind of humor me a little bit so that helps but when he is here he tends to put the kids to bed. He deals with any shenanigans of kids. Getting out of bed like he just knows my tolerance for that is so bad that he kinda does it so that is one also say i would say positive one that takes advantage of kind of natural difference in our energy level at that time of day. Yeah i'm trying to split the sleep disruptions more evenly right now having some challenges with it. Although you know what. I'll do i'll go sleep in the guest room and michael is in the room with henry in the closet right some nights and but i love to sleep past six and so last night i was in the gas stream. And i'm like please give me till six. And so they appear in my room and he's like no. It's morning he has the baby and then i was like let me. Just go. look at the clock it was it was five forty five so it was close but it was not six just like ahmad couldn't fifteen minutes two more minutes i do feel like and since the oscar did ask about what quickly becomes unequal. Unfortunately i always felt lake. Ns is not his fault. But i felt like baby care was just typically where we would fall apart partly because you know if you are nursing and that is the most easy kind of reliable way to soothe your baby then. Only one person is able to do that. And then sometimes that just sort of extends over to lake just end up being the baby wrangler so there have been times when i have had to say like and this is more applicable when our kids were younger but i would just be like. I have been with the one year old the entire day. And you've been doing fun stuff with the big kids. And we need to like consciously trade and then he does and he's like. Oh yeah you're right. But i think that would be a natural one where we tend to kind of fall apart. And that's not our intention but it just kinda happens or used to happen exactly but you know having discussions about it always good. I mean obviously this could be a topic of a whole episode but I think in general making sure that you are aware also of what your partner is doing because this does happen sometimes is our past guests. Tiffany do talked about in her book that she and her husband made the list of things that you doing. You know she'd made the list. I and it's like i'm doing fifty things that you're doing to and it's been like well. He could list fifty things that she hadn't even thought of so it was. You know there are. There are things that happen. Like our bike tires get inflated balls get inflated plants appear in the backyard like these are just things that happen and i don't even think about it and so you know i could then say like oh gosh why was i up at five forty five instead of six is because he was up since four like he was up with the baby four gave him to me at five. Forty five like apparently you know gave him to that but it was you know it. It's just you want to make sure that before you think. Things are terribly unequal. You take a good look at what is really happening and see what they think might be on equal to and i'm glad you mentioned dropped the ball that is my favorite division of labor parent book. Because you can hear the love in their relationship as she talks about it and it has a certain playfulness but at the same time. It's really powerful. So you should have your partner in yourself. Read that apparently in their case the one getting up with their baby all the time like she slept really deeply spoke. There you go splits differently. Different ways all right so. Our next question is navigating the transition from one to two heads. sarah was joking about this. We have a particular. They're sort of ongoing best of both worlds and we always laugh about fathers who make the joke whenever there had going from. Two to three of liga will go for man demand zone defense. It's like up that implies that you never had both two kids on your own ever because if you were doing on defense right so thank you for sharing with us that you have never had your children to yourself but okay yes you could make that joke. I love it. I love it it. It is a best of both worlds trope or something to have a little bit of snark that particular statement so yes i agree i do feel like so we laura oh we could talk about two to three or three or four forty five. I'm like i don't know the ladder a couple of those but i found zero to one the hardest by far because all of a sudden your life is not about about you. It's about many other things and wanted to the second hardest two to three the third hardest so maybe does keep getting eat. Maybe the answer is just have lots and lots easier but actually to me. There's a really big difference between adding child when you have like three or four year old and then adding a child you have say like an eighteen month old or twenty month old. I say give yourself a break if you're going to have a baby and toddler and know that that that time is short because they're toddlers quickly gonna age out to preschooler and things will get a little bit better and then your baby will be a toddler screaming. Newborn things are going to get better but higher the help give yourself a break. Don't expect things are going to be perfect or easy like high personally found that we have very challenging time and it wasn't the two kids particularly it was twenty two month old zero year old or twenty six month old and six month old or whatever you know we had so the spacing is going to play a role and know that that's going to be temporary because they're not gonna stay both tiny and toddlers forever And that is the time to ask for help. Whether that is from friends family members or people that you employ. Yeah i mean. I would say i. I don't even really have any many memories of when jasper four sam had just turned two and ruth was a baby. I mean i clearly that time happened but it was just a you know you get through it one way or the other and to recognize that that is probably not going to be your most relaxing period of life. When if if you have for instance two hundred two or two under three hundred two and a half. Whatever i mean these are these are just really really challenging times. Yeah the the baby is actually. You can put the baby down and like especially if the baby isn't mobile. They're not going to go anywhere. they're not going to get into trouble. So you might be better off focusing on your two year old at that point and you know viewing dot is the more immediate pressing issue and the baby will then command more time later in life when that's happened get very good at like nursing while walking around my other. They think you this nice idea of people at first time children. They're like..

"One hundred ninety six airing in early may twenty twenty one. This is going to be an all mailbag episode taking listener questions. Some people sent in via instagram. Some through email even an audio question. Now that sarah has really cool setup maybe you can just quickly remind listeners. How they can send those. Yes i embarked upon from cast initially but then realized of course it can serve both purposes. So that we're not calling the recording right now. I guess no we will. We're going to slice it in you. Guys are gonna get to hear it of course. So we'll be airing the actual audio question. And if you'd like to submit an audio question just click on the speaker icon. I'll see if i can send it to laura for her to embed into her show notes. But i will just a hedge our bets. I will remember on tuesday to also include it on my blog. So as this airs you can go to my blog post on the shoebox dot com and there'll be a reminder of how to submit an audio question you just click on the speak pipe icon and you can use whatever on your phone or computer whatever quarter. The questions are limited to ninety seconds. Because i don't currently have the pro version but pro tip. You could always extend your question by leaving. A second question really is longer than ninety seconds and honestly most questions. Don't take longer than ninety seconds to ask anyways what i've learned. So they may want to think about changing their business model. But until then it's a great way for you to fifteen seconds and then you have to pay more a little bit more revenue but yes we would. We would welcome more. I think it's really fun to actually hear voices all right. Well then we could go ahead and play that question then if you are set up to do that. Let's let's go for it. Hello sarah hi. Laura my name shretha and i've been listening to the best of both worlds since two thousand eighteen and i find it very enjoyable and insightful. So thank you for the great content one strategy. That you've discussed in the past is to plan the next week and not just for work goals but also for personal goals. I've always done basically planning of my work goals but a few weeks ago i started planning my personal goals as well on friday afternoon. Planning sessions and balladur a great job in planning and completing my work related goals. My personal goals seemed to have a problem. There either overly ambitious like creating a capsule wardrobe in a week. And i don't finish them or extremely mundane and they feel like a to do list like changing our the bug in the porch light and it doesn't feel fulfilling ben so i ended up feeling frustrated at the end of the week instead of being satisfied. So my question is how do i set the right scoop for my personal goals so that it feels like an accomplishment. Anoc like gordon and not like box checking any advice for setting the size of these weekly personal goals would be great. Thank you very much alright. So that question was about setting the right level of goals for our weekly goals laura. Do you have thoughts on that. Yeah well i mean this is obviously the challenge of estimating how much we can get done taking into account what life is like and what i will say is. This is very difficult. Time estimation question. In addition to a goal estimation question and time estimate is difficult. Many people do not know how long things they do quite regularly take. We're even talking things like commuting to work. There are people who don't actually know how long it takes them to get to work. I that seems a little silly but there are plenty of other things that people do all the time and don't know how long they take and it's it's the same thing with setting goals for what constitutes a challenging but doable sort of week. I would say aim low and the reason is because if you set lower goals and you get through all of it like you are always free to go pick more stuff like there is no rule saying well. Okay if you accomplish everything by the end of wednesday you have to take the weekend off. I mean he could of course but you're obviously welcome to go find some other stuff than to fill the rest of your week if you feel. It was an inadequate week in some way shape or form but the more common centers the other way that people try to cram too much in and then they don't get to it all and then they feel discouraged. And it's not just about the discouragement part of it. It's that you might not have chosen the right stuff to do i. If you don't really think through what you're going to get through. You may have chosen stuff. That could have been done next week. You might have chosen stuff. That was not quite as urgent as the stuff you didn't get to and then you've brought yourself all kinds of problems so aim lower than you think you're going to get to then see what happens. I would suggest any given day cannot accommodate more than three may be five tasks that are not set appointments so that might be a good way to kind of aimed for like if you've got four meetings than set yourself three other tasks around those meetings. If you've got one meeting maybe could do more like five but if you have a good sense of how the weakest shaped like that then you can allocate each goal to a particular time and if it's like wait. I don't think that's gonna fit. That's a good sign that it's not going to fit. Yes so the time. Sort of modified time blocking approach is what you're suggesting. It sounds like now this person specifically and i apologize. Because laura was not able to hear the entire question right now i summarized it but they were asking about goals in particular in addition to work goals and how to make sure that they're not like too trivial so they just feel like little tax but not too much where they overwhelmed themselves. And i don't have a great answer other than trial and error. I mean if you pick a goal one week and it just seems like too much than think about. Whether that might be a specific goal you want to divide into pieces for example. You guys know i was working on doing an organizing program of my home and it quickly became evident that doing one step every day. It was not going to be doable for me. So i had to figure that out by trial and error and then decided you know what i'm going to a couple of these actions per week and so i learned by doing that would be a meaningful amount for me that didn't feel completely trivial but wasn't overwhelming. So i i'm not sure we're entirely going to be able to answer this question for you except to give you permission that it's okay to play with things and especially learn from the times that you do choose to many things how you might be able to break those down to make them more manageable to fit the time for a week. Yeah i must say that. On weekend days. I tend to choose one or two things that i want to aim for on the weekend beyond kind of life maintenance If these little personal goals. I want to tackle more than that. It's just not going to happen if you have a busy life. I mean that's just reality. And then maybe one to two much smaller things for during the week that you could tackle in the evenings so that just as a general rule of thumb and so apologies for having gone on about work related time estimation not having heard actual question do the magic of podcasting. It's gonna get spliced in later so now you know how the sausage is made around here although interesting answering questions that people didn't ask is kind of a time honored media training technique that when you learn how to do for instance television or radio interviews the goal is always you know people ask a question but you have kind of your set stuff that you also want to say and generally you can get to what you want to say if you pay attention to people who've done a lot of television radio whatever is attend to answer stuff that didn't get asked that is very interesting and definitely makes me think back to some of our guests interviews especially are more polished guests where it's like. Wow how did they work their book in there like i asked about what they had for lunch. Yes well number two. Let's move on sarah. How do you organize your reading life. I think you should answer this. Because i basically do not so.

"We have a family one which was a tip. I think we got from a listener a long time ago. We have a sarah and joshua unger that we think josh accesses it directly. But i actually forward a copy that to my mean inbox. So on the plus side. It means you can have multiple inboxes without having to check multiple inboxes like i never go in there to check on the minus sign. It makes responding really confusing because it'll funnel to your main inbox than when you respond. You don't realize that you're like using your own. And i don't know there are a little bit of complications that are added to that. But if you ever have considered getting like a family address it's nice to know that you can actually just four that to your main inbox. At least edgy mom short. Other email Well we read. This book called a world without email from county which is quite quite a bold title To have a world without email. I mean did you have any sort of like adult life without email you. I mean we were sort of right on the dividing line of where email was of something people always used. Yeah i don't think i had built life without email even in college. There is email so there always email. There's always but i think i mean. He admitted that the title was a liberal. Little overreaching if he kind of named it with the book was really about it was sort of like a world without the hyperactive hive. Mind mentality which can talk about what he means by that. Which i actually think is a fantastic descriptors and i've been using it more and more everyday Conversation publisher described this hyperactive high. Hyperactive hide mind. Is the idea that in knowledge work. We're going to get stuff done by painting each other all day. Long whenever we need somebody for something and that like basically like. We're just going to somehow as a group move forward. Various projects without any organized way of communicating needs to each other other than like ad hoc continuous email and chat conversations and like honestly to some extent. That's what i see happening. I mean we'll be like trying to plan an event and it's like i'll get emails mental even get like text on my phone while responding to the amount and it's just okay. This could have been like. Let's have a fifteen minute face to face conversation about like what we're gonna do at the event and move on and instead it's like ping ping ping ping ping all day long. And then oh. Let's look this person in. And now i've become a supervisory role so now i'm like getting like randomly. Cc'd on stuff and it's like oh we're just gonna loop like what does that mean like. Do you want me to supervise this. You just want me to be aware of it. Do you want me to police this in some way or is it just for my information. And what does that even mean like. While i'm going on a tangent but i there is something about the continuous conversations that are happening and sort of the expectation of very rapid response. Time both in email anthrax and now through some clinical chat applications that have like another layer where hyperactive high of mind is what it feels like. Like of buzzing around kind of sort of moving in one direction but in a very very inefficient manner. So i really liked that descriptive. That's what it means to me. Okay yes so a world without email he talks about the history of will and how technology sort of creates its own paths of how people use it. So it's not somebody designed email in a certain way it's just that whatever was the easiest way for it to be used winds up being how it is used especially taking into account human nature. One of the stories in there is when ibm i introduced. Email its headquarters. There was an attempt to figure out how much people would use it right so as they were building. The server capacity for people send emails. Said well how much people use it okay. Well let's add up like the voicemails the memo's if anyone remembers the inter-office memo it's in this grubby vanilla folder. That's like military nothing but it's grubby. It's like everyone's touched it. The little friends are falling apart. That you have to wrap around you right. The next person's name and cross out the gross discussing that's what people use emails definitely Anyway so the voicemails. The interoffice memos the scribbled notes. They're like okay. Let's add up. See what the amount of capacity is we to. That's what they said. The server four they blow through it immediately because people realize oh i can just send an email instead of going to find this person talking to them and so what would have been a fifteen minute conversation. As was says now ten back and forth emails which requires more capacity. people discovered that they could copy other's the dreaded cc as that came to be and so he quotes cal quotes an ibm employee. Saying basically in one week there was gained and lost the entire presidential productivity gain of email because of all of a sudden you went from something that was definitely better than what came before like sending email is so much more convenient in many cases than Playing phone tag with somebody all day. It's so much more convenient than those horrible folders re cross out the name. Send the document than onto the next person but people didn't use it necessarily rationally. They used it in a way. That was creating this. hyperactive high. Mind where you go back and forth ten times instead of having one conversation and you add other people because why not. there's no cost to it. it's friction lists communication at scale. And so it's a fascinating idea so we have to get quick break and when we get back. We're gonna talk more about those mail folders..

Despite the fact that kobe has continued to take a hold of societies around the world. Some upside companies have continued to create upcycle goods. As i did my research. I found an online source called the good trade and allies was some companies are doing when it comes to up cycling. I really loved that. Each company they outlined in these articles had their own stories about how they started and the of goods. They have as well Is that they are all based on fair trade and fair wages wherever they are located the price points for these companies seem reasonable in this will make them consumer friendly. They are jewelry designers crafters and artisans in clothing designers. Among this group. It would be unfair to say that this is an all inclusive list of what is going on with up cycling in particular alike that in many places where exactly would have been thought of as simply practical thing. It has now become as i see up cycling as both are in function. This is what i wanted to come across when i first started this broadcast that just because something is practical it does not mean that it cannot be also beautiful artistic An overall a product.

"You don't have to do her roic to increase your earnings in order to have a comfortable retirement or meet your goals. I think that adds to overall wellness. I know it. I know that once we got stuff in better order that added to my own personal wellness and oddly helped me to feel a little bit more free at work. May because. I didn't feel like i just feel less desperate. Like you feel more like you know. I could do something else if i needed to. I could. i could find another job and it wouldn't even necessarily have to be exactly the same paying job. It just gives you a lot more flexibility and freedom and one less thing to worry about. Yeah no that's a great point Because yeah i mean having a bonus be a bonus is probably wise for one psychological wellness in general That if you live on what you know you will make even if it's not a great year than if it is it's all gravy and You know you don't have to push yourself to for something that that is more variable and that you wouldn't know so that's that's good advice for people whether you're in medicine or not of course the one place that you wanna spend is the childcare talk a little bit about this because when people are like skimping on childcare i mean. What are the ways people do that that make a new adds to their stress. I mean i get tempted myself on my need full time. The kids are and then. I really searched myself. I'm like while it would make every morning very stressful on. Then i'd be on a time clock every afternoon. Like i think having a little bit more than you truly need so that you have a buffer and you know that if you have a meeting that has to happen at six pm tonight that i don't have to stress over. You know who's going to help me with that. It greatly adds to my it. It really takes away from career stress because that does become a layer of career stress. If you feel very very constrained by our hours i recognize. That is a luxury like that. That is not something that everyone can do but probably most physicians depending on their other lifestyle. Choices can afford a little bit of extra kind of buffer zone there and i think that it does add to quality of life and probably increases just general job satisfaction. Because you feel like okay. I'm going to have to work an extra hour here and there but then i can get it all done without like that additional layer of stress of scrambling to figure out what to do with the kids. Yes it's funny that we're talking about this right now because we have a giant snowstorm and that that forces a change in our general childcare arrangements but what we have the four older kids home with us right now doing virtual school although alex is not doing virtual school right now. Because i like i can't supervise it. I'm here doing something else. I will supervise it in the afternoon. But i can't in the morning. So he's just playing his kindle which we found it was hidden in the house but has been found abso. That's an exciting thing for anyone who has reading my blog and wondering about that but this is how it is at the moment with this but it is not something that i could say like. Oh hey since. We're both working from home. We don't need childcare at all. Like that would just be ridiculous. And yet yet i know a lot of people the had to make do with that with the pandemic over the past year or have maybe thought. Like oh yeah. Why don't we try that. I would suggest you not try that if there are other options and yes good. Childcare costs money but one of our themes here on best. Both worlds is that that is actually worth putting money into that. Maybe there are other areas of life that we can cut back on in order to Have that quality of life aspect. Well why don't we take a short break and then we'll be back with more on what Managers what institutions can do..

Know that i love to upcycle things in the kitchen. I should really start a series on this. So here we go Garlic skins are great plant fertilizer. But golly skins are reputed to do much more than that golly skins have been reported use to treat stomach upset including diarrhea. Who knew another it is a repellent against mosquitoes and other insects. Who absolutely hate the smell of garlic. Some of the other things people have been using are onion skins are and one of them. Is that people use them in stews and even rise all to flavor of the rise and then remove before eating unskilled reportedly good for muscle cramps and can be made into a tea for this purpose. Unas onion skins getting are also be used as a t to sleep another great thing about onion skin skins as they can be used to die when boiled both onion and garlic skin have antifungal properties and can be used to elevate just game once. You infuse it in some water and use this water Skins can also be reported to us as a hair dye. That would be interesting. Of course you should definitely do more. Research on any of the uses that had to do with Ingesting any of the Onion garlic skins.

"Did you. You offer your nannies a raise. When a second kid came into the picture yes and no i see yes because at least <unk>. Especially back then when our second kid came into the picture fairly soon after her nanny had started with us. I was pregnant with him when she came so she kinda knew she was signing for kids. We did yearly raises in those days. And when i say because at some point we hit kind of a little bit of a ceiling where we just started adding other things like increased bonuses and increase vacation time at cetera. I wouldn't say we added specifically because of the second kid but we did increase <hes>. Compensation anyway and i will say that you know just like for a parent sometimes. It's helpful for a caregiver to have the toddler out of the house for part of it so they can focus on the other kid especially if they're going to be doing some housework duties as well so back then. When annabelle was three in cameron was one that was probably one of the hardest parts of her job. Say harder than it is now especially because for the most part all three go to school for a significant portion of the day. But i had alan in preschool at age three even if it was just for four or five hours that really broke up the de for time that she would just have with a newborn time in part. When that new warriner one-year-old even would be napping so just took the load off a little bit so sometimes it doesn't you know it's not an either or plus particularly in non cova times preschools had have benefits to something to consider. That might make things easier for your caregiver. If you're adding more than one can. Yeah i mean. I would say like in general with any. I mean you employ in your work worker at home as well. i mean. anytime someone's job responsibilities increase substantially than than raise would probably be appropriate in our case we had always <unk>. wound up in a cycle. We are hiring new people. Like as i was pregnant with the next baby so it was like. Yeah i like you the they were signing on in negotiating with that in mind knowing the number of children that would be involved in the job and then currently we actually are any wanted to trim hours a little bit over the past year. And that's that's been fine. Because michael and i are both working at home right now. I'm not travelling anywhere.

"Kind of a lesson in the early cova. Which apparently is when you can be pretty. Contagious may not be picked up on the. Pc are although that conflicts. With what i've heard is that the viral load on the pcr kind of correlates. With how contagious you are so again. Not coke expert. But i one hundred percent can tell you that i did have covid type of symptoms several days prior to actually testing positive for cove in fact was testing negative at that time so have contact and symptomatic. I wouldn't necessarily hang your hat especially on early. Negative and just see danger people the pcr. What what that is versus they. Yes so if you're if you're not familiar with the pcr is kind of Basically replicates the viral sequences from the viruses genome. And it will actually it one in our community there. They actually three. You can see if you're positive on all of them. Ours will all positive on all of them. Because i guess they want to kind of like serves as a control and then there's a another gene that they replicate like probably some skin genomic. That's an everybody sampled. That's kind of like you know. The pregnancy tests has two lines will let the the control on anyway so they replicate these genes. And if it if it's above a certain amount than you're carrying enough virus but the antigen tests is a much faster. Tested just looks for the presence or not of a little bit of a protein that is part of the run virus but the one that is a little bit. More sensitive is generally the pcr tests. And how are you guys getting this done where you're going to a testing site like going to your pcp like what was your your setup here. This really varies by location You guys know. I'm in south florida. It's actually very easy for any public individual to get tasks. There's a lot of drive through testing sites. Josh and i did a combination of using the drive through public sites and also since we are hospital employees. If you're a symptomatic on which were in the very beginning you're allowed to go anytime and get a test on in one of the so. It was a combination of those things but our kids obviously are not hospital employees that they use the community testing sites and where we live there. Free and i will say i've been pretty impressed. Every time we've gone to get a test results back within about forty eight hours so it's it's not a terrible turn around and come back on your phone. Just attended found swab or throat swab or what. What's your role at this point. So many cova test of this. Or that i have actually never done an antigen tests and have never done any saliva test. So i'm sure that will be in my future someday. Screenings but the hospital doesn't know swap currently have had many many of those and it's funny because the technicians do seem to vary and the level of aggressiveness. And whether or not they do both nostrils or just one. So i'm like wouldn't it be the same every time but it's not and all the community sites around here. Are currently doing the throat swab. So basically just feels like a strep test for the kids. You might think that the throat swab would be more kind in the young kids. Who don't want open their mouth. It actually leads to much more of a battle situation than a no swan because he can't really closer. It's hard to close your nose you can try. But yes yes. I have probably had ten cova tossed by this point in the year. Yeah and so. How does the clockwork on it. Then with your your isolation When you have a family member test positive or when you yourself test positive from the onset of symptoms. How 'cause i know that shifted over the course of this i thought okay. What's out actually can depend on your local department of health. Like the cdc says like fourteen days but then there's like leeway by the various department of health's issues seven or ten. That's kind of interesting like you would think it would the same virus right but our department of health. They they called us so they text you the result. But if you're positive you also did a follow up phone call and ask about contacts and they asked about The kind of give you instructions with like where to seek care if you need it as well as the structures about nineteen and so they said that. I believe it was ten days after the test date and you had to be completely symptom. Free at least seventy two hours which that gets me a little question because it kind of like what about like one cough. Every eight hours Symptom like i don't know i'll cross that bridge when i get there because i'm still i'm still under quarantine so yes it's about ten ten days from from your test not from your symptoms at least in our local that may be different and so this correspondent though at the holidays so you guys were off work for some of it anyway so when the kids were positive and we were negative at first. We're like well. This might be fine because you know nobody's gonna get it the kids get it but maybe they were art exposal. Just get over it. We won't get it from them and then of course we got. I mean i'm assuming got them but yes so. It didn't work out quite as neatly as we thought the other thing. Which was kind of surprise. Is that. I assume the kids could go back to school once. A certain amount of days had elapsed but both our local public school in the private school. That i have cameron genevieve. Currently at require negative pcr. So the reason that. I'm kinda like her is that that can take a week or can actually take months in some unlucky people. It's thought that those people are not contagious. Knows for one hundred one hundred one hundred percent which is why they. They're saying their policies are kind of the side of caution. So yeah we're kind of in limbo right now. I think everything's gonna be okay though. I i will say the online learning is still not ideal in particular for cameron who is in first grade but it is better now than it. Was you know seven eight months ago. So you know will partly because he's learned how to read better right like the word it required going to in person school to do so a very a few months no really i mean he made out of -solutely like you know it was like. Is this a different kid. Like i was very impressed with the progress that he's made since since he went to go back to school. But you know what more lockdowns could becoming especially. I don't know you know we're recording this in in fairly early january it's going to air in a couple of weeks. We know that there's more rapidly spreading variance in europe. Right now probably here too and at least down in florida our schools have been pretty adamant about staying open. I'm imagining that. There are still some sort of threshold that they have so actually feel better knowing that. I'm like okay this time around wouldn't be as bad as last time if did have to go online again. All right. let's take a quick break and then we'll be right back. hey.

"We've both read her book drop the ball. And of course, she's been doing other great things since that came out a few years ago. So we're looking forward to that. But the end of the school year is coming up with its blitz of interviewer activities. Sarah, how are you faring with all that ham? Okay. I've got two different schools this year. And I guess I will for the foreseeable future, actually because of people be in her own little school in quotes next year. But no, it's a lot because there's kindergarten events. And then it seems like the mother's day events. I mean, this is airing pass mother's day, but they're kind of mixed in there somewhere and then a bunch of sort of end of your performances, which happened to come at a very, very busy time for me at work right now as we're trying to finish up a year of residence in onboard new ones. So yeah, I'm I'm mildly frustrated with my calendar right now. Well, it's also that you need, you need to know ahead of time. Because like you, you know, you can't just like easily move patient. Visit I mean it's not. Yes. That's actually a big part of it, if they could just get maybe they just can't. But if if by January we could just know what all the dates were. So I could work around them. It would be wonderful. I can't be the only person that this kind of thing impacts, but somehow the end of the stuff, always seems to get thrown together, and you get an Email in mid April, and then all of a sudden it's like, well, I have patients and the patients have their own things that they've probably scheduled around. So they're not happy to be moved either. So it causes a bit of a mess and you had mentioned in your notes feeling sometimes judged miss an individual air event. Yeah, I'm debating this upcoming event at Cameron school. And I feel like if I don't go. They're gonna say something or at least think something that I know why should I even care..

"This episode fifty nine first airing in mid September, very excited to have Jessica Turner on the podcast today. Jessica Turner is the author of stretched too thin. A new book about how working parents particularly working moms can ditch the guilt and feel better about life really celebrate life in all its all about here on best of both worlds as very excited about that as we're recording this, Sarah recently did a post about marking down the days of how mitt, Helen. She was pumping. I will get an update on the whole nursing situation how that has been like a major theme on this podcast. I'm not sure I meant for it to be, but you know, it is something common to many of us that we go through, especially as working parents working mothers in particular, don't think the father is really deal with this anyway. So you all know that I was very conflicted, like how long I'm I going to pomp and I was struggling and I have now kind of decided, and I feel good. Like having a decision made that I'm gonna pump basically until she's one until December first, she turns one, December eleventh, but somehow December first feels more doable. No, there's ten days shouldn't. And I don't know. I'm look at peace with that. I actually made this piece of paper where I wrote down, like how many workdays I have until that time. And I also put little dots on the days that I have patients the entire day because those are definitely the most challenging and it doesn't look that bad. Like it reminds me honestly of like a little like marathon training program. So if I can do that, if and I've done that, this is no worse than that. So it will be really wonderful to regain my freedom at that point. It's decisional feel at peace with a meeting. The truth is I've been enjoying those. I work for days a week and I really enjoy the other three days that I can just breastfeed her in being able to continue that until December is great. And I know some people are able to do that without pumping, but I just don't know that I can and I just feel like I can suck it up for three more months and then be done, but you're planning on, you're not gonna win her. Then you're planning on doing stole like, we'll just see how that happens. Yeah, we'll see how that happens. More organically. I'm definitely not gonna. Just cut her off. We are planning like a triple. I wanna see Casey musk graves in concert in Nashville. Josh at the end of February. So we're definitely doing that. And my thought is we'll probably make it like a three day weekend or so. And that may be like a natural ending point. Maybe. I have tried that sort of sneaky. Weaning go and see what happens. Are not had it work really like you came back and they were like, Nope, still still want it still on it and you still had it? He's done. I don't know. I'm on south by south west when Alex was fourteen months old and I thought that would be a good time to to win by that by he's eating normal food like he's he's only nursing like occasionally, right. Like it's not, you know, around the clock every it's not nutrition. It's more like comfort and and of thing. So I didn't bring the pump with me. It was gone for five days, did not bring the pump with me. I was expressing enough like in the showers just feel comfortable, right. Basically Zappa's doing and if it's too much information there..

"Both worlds. This is Laura MRs episode fifty five. It is airing on August twenty one, which is pretty much our one year anniversary. It's very exciting. We released three episodes right at the beginning to to launch the podcast. So about fifty two weeks plus the three. At the beginning, this episode fifty five brings us right around to where we started. And so this will be our anniversary episode with a little bit of back to school to bits thrown in because you know, we want to be helpful in addition to just copy ourselves on the back, which is always fun. But you know, our traffic has been growing which has been awesome. We could always use more though, right? There are many people in this world who do not yet know about best of both worlds podcasts. So if you're thinking, hey, I would like to celebrate with Sarah and Laura, this weather anniversary milestone. He has Matha you could do. So by telling a friend or colleague about this podcast, you could wish us happy birthday. On social media tag us, that would be great because then people will see as well or even more who you can leave us a rating or review over on items because it really does help. When people are looking at podcasts, maybe somebody's mentioned Ed or they found us research like, oh, should I bother if you've got hundreds of five star reviews people like, oh, maybe I will. So please do leave a rating review. It would be a great way to say happy birthday to us. We appreciate it. We really enjoy doing this and we will remind you that we are free. So there. Now, that's what you can do to repay us. Just what you can do to repay us. If it's a rating review also you can respond to our survey which we will be putting out soon because we want to know what you'd like more of what we could do better. There will be a prize, and I'll think we've exactly decided what the price is. Yeah, he didn't like may idea. Maybe we should. Maybe we can add to that. It'll be my my wonderful husband actually has. He would like to create some best of both worlds mugs. I think mostly just for me and Laura, but you never know. We could also perhaps insurance around rise could be rolled swag. Now said you could win a copy of one of my books, though a number of our blog readers have already purchased my books, and that's a good point to give it to a friend. That would be awesome too. What to get to her for Christmas. So I guess as well. Yes, we were looking back on because we get the stats. I read lips in our host of how many downloads there have been for various different episodes from what. Yeah, yeah. I gotta say like the cool thing is that it's skewed and it skewed to the more recent episodes because we've grown over time, which is so cool. So I mean, we'll talk a little bit about oldies but goodies later. I don't wanna do a disservice for some to some of the ones we did earlier, which actually covers some really kind of basic bread and butter best both worlds topics. But in recent times since we had more listeners are sort of top top ones have been more recent..
