Nikki Spo on Motherish with Pamela Silva and Karen Comas

This week's episode of The Know with Nikki Spo is a different little vibe  - an episode within an episode! I had the privilege of joining the renowned podcast Motherish, hosted by Pamela Silva and Karen Comas. Together, we delved into the wild, wild world of motherhood, sharing our own "Motherish moments" and connecting on a deeply personal level. Our conversation revolves around the challenges we've faced as mothers, providing a comforting reminder that we are not alone in this journey. We are forming a strong, supportive community of women who are coming together and having open discussions about both the glamorous and the not-so-glamorous aspects of motherhood. Tune in for all the Motherish talk!

“I feel a lot less alone in this whole process of mothering and everything.” - Nikki Spo

“As we grow we heal and we evolve. We live in the real world. We carry the parts of us and the experiences we had into our adulthood.” - Nikki Spo 

“We're breaking so much generational trauma while we educate our children.” - Karen Comas

“The best way to prevent child abuse is educating the parents.” - Pamela Silva

“We can't educate our children if we're not educated about it ourselves.” - Karen Comas

“I don't think anybody ever is healed. I think it's a life's work. I think it's an ongoing process. And I reserve the right to be wrong still, you know? I make mistakes, I'm going to mess up because I'm still a work in progress.” - Nikki Spo 

“I believe that girls challenge you in different ways than boys. We're the same right, we're both women.” - Karen Comas   

“We want our kids to see us happy and to see us feel good about ourselves and feel good, but sometimes it is challenging. It’s not as easy as it sounds” - Pamela Silva 

“We should just love ourselves and be careful. When they tell you not to cry when you're pregnant because the baby feels it, well they feel it too when they're not in your womb, you know? And we need to keep that mentality of being so protective of ourselves and what we expose ourselves to through their lifetime.” - Pamela Silva
