Confidence, life changes & closer to home - Sofie Skehan
The idea of a life in L.A. sounds glamorous and exciting and although it definitely has its benefits, as life changes with new babies and new priorities, sometimes we just need to be closer to home.
In this episode of everymum the podcast season 2, sponsored by WaterWipes, we welcome Swedish mum of two Sofie Larsson Skehan back to Ireland, we hear all about why she and her husband TV Host and Cook, Donal Skehan decided that now was the right time to leave L.A., their race to pack up their life and get across the world before the pandemic closed our skies and how as life changes she refocused on what’s important to her to confidently raise her two boys.
We talk about how there is no picture perfect parenting, how brand new people can just appear into your life and become your go-to best friends at 3am, how she learned to adapt to parenting solo when Donal would travel for work and how although routine is needed, sometimes learning to let go and be more open and relaxed allows more fun and adventure in.
And we couldn’t talk to Sofie without of course talk about weaning and food and how she is introducing her boys to love delicious healthy taste experiences – while letting them explore and create one hell of a mess.
