I am enjoying the answers to questions that are sent in. I also enjoyed the episode from Colorado when you talked about self care. That person that emailed you and told you that you talked too much about yourself is pretty foolish. It makes me think they are just jealous that they don't have an amazing parenting podcast. Keep up the great work and thank you for being open and vulnerable with us
