August 17, 2017•34 min
On the show today, Jane talks to successful author Kristin Quinn, who has accomplished what most young mothers only dream about – having a thriving business plus the ability to spend time with their children. (In her case, Paigely, 6, Decker, 3, and Riggs, 4 months). Business-wise, Kristin writes Misadventures in Mommyhood, a popular blog with over 50,000 followers. Her subjects range from baby products to motherhood to advice on parenting and lifestyle. Furthermore, she has been featured on multiple TV and radio shows, is an ambassador to a handful of major corporations and brands, and has won multiple awards for her writing. Kristin and Jane talk about some of the issues all mothers face, her favorite stories about bringing up her babies, the role of grandparents, and how she manages to fit all that she does into her day. She also shares how-to tips and tools that range from the importance of taking time for yourself, traveling with kids, the benefits of seeking support from others, and even the comforts of swaddling.
