#1 New York Times bestselling author and award-winning entertainment journalist LESLIE BRUCE speaks candidly about overwhelming life moments from going back to work after baby, to fertility, to her complicated second pregnancy and recent bedrest. "Supporting overwhelmed mamas" is a tagline of her popular Instagram feed (@leslieannebruce), and as co-author of "Celebrate" with Lauren Conrad, I knew she'd be the perfect mom to talk some sense into me about what she calls the “optic peer pressure” of social media. It's literally her job to get that perfect shot, and she's happy to acknowledge the work and "hair and makeup" that go into it. Her honest and irreverent take on the struggles of motherhood can be found on her blog UNPACIFIED. As an overwhelmed mom myself (stories for another time), our conversation feels like a much needed post bedtime wine hang. Happy listening, Ellie KnausWhat was the most overwhelming moment in your life as a mom? How did you overcome it? We'd love to know in the comments of our @atomicmoms episode post.Show notes coming soon to: atomicmoms.com Listen on all podcast apps! Please subscribe. And please write a review!
