Episode 3.11 Make Baby Cozy

IIIIIII’MMMMM SIIIIIICCCKKKKK and hoo boy can you ever hear it in this episode. Sorry for the garbage voice this weeks folks, and also for the very short episode, but for all my whining and rasping, I’m actually delighted to be sharing with you the new theme for all of our winters: make baby cozy. Coined by former guest of the podcast Baby Groot, this phrase is a reminder to treat yourself with tenderness and care, and to ask for what you need. It’s also tacit permission to baby yourself, to be a baby, to let go, at least for a little while, of whatever kind of hardness adulthood has brought you. As Mary Oliver says, “You only have to let the soft animal of your body / love what it loves.”

  1. Hannah, I really needed this today. I took a sick day because I woke up with a headache and feeling crappy, but I’m feeling bad as I don’t have paid sick time and my income supports both myself and my spouse. When I was still in bed I got this episode in my inbox and reading your permission to baby myself was just what I needed to hear.
