In part 1, Jen and our guest host Katie Roy were very honest about some of the hardest emotional hurdles they've faced with our kids - as well as how hard it can be to get help, because as a mom you feel like it all comes back on you. And those are some things they’ve faced even before we had a pandemic, and all the other craziness of the world! In part two we’ll talk about some of the more acute struggles our kids are facing, and how we can try to help our kids through this stuff and also hold onto our own sanity!

 

This is the season 1 finale! We'll return with a HUGE surprise the Tuesday after Labor Day! In the meantime, please take a second to rate, review, subscribe, and share with your mama friends!

The Kids Are Alright-ish - Part 1

July 27, 2020

Throughout the course of the first season, the focus has been on the moms - how we're doing, how we cope, how we unwind, how we take care of ourselves... but today, it's all about the kids. We have special co-host Katie Roy - who is mom of 2, a therapist-in-training, and Corri's sister! The girls get real about the struggles their kids have faced - on an on-going as well as more acute basis (cause... pandemic + all the other stuff). Katie gives us some ways we can help ease their stress and anxiety at home, how to recognize when it's time to get professional help, and how we can hold on to our own sanity while making sure the kids are alright-ish!

Sanctimommy & The Mom-Shamers

July 14, 2020

Mom-shaming. It’s SUCH a thing! And with COVID keeping us all at home and bored.. the opportunities for sanctimommy trolling seem to be increasing! Shawn Johnson, Maren Morris, and even our new mommy Kaela have recently been shamed pretty hard core! Who shames moms the MOST? What is a “sanctimommy?” Do dads get shamed, too? And do we even shame ourselves? The girls talk all this, as well as who might just have license to give unsolicited advice…(hint: it’s not strangers). Whether it’s about how you labor, whether you nurse, your sleep training methods, your methods of discipline, or any random thing someone wants to point out - the shaming can be about absolutely anything, and it is oh so REAL. Tune in to hear how Corri, Kaela & Jen have been shamed, and how we might be able to turn the shaming tide…

Co-Sleeping With the Enemy

June 23, 2020

Some parents swear by co-sleeping, while others swear it's dangerous and should be avoided. Right now, Jen is in a the middle of a co-sleeping crisis! Her precious little 2-year-old is keeping her up ALL NIGHT...Which is making Kaela, a new mom who has been co-sleeping, very nervous - will the baby ever transition to a crib now that snuggling with mom has been the routine? And does she even want that to happen? 

The girls talk pros and cons of co-sleeping, when the cute little baby in Jen's bed became the enemy, and why each of them chose the sleep method they did... Jen's was a decision made because of painful loss, Kaela's from new-momma protective instinct, and Corri's (her babies were bassinet/crib sleepers) out of being an anxious rule-follower. 

They also unlock the key to weaning with a new invention that just might be genius... (nipple dip, anyone?).

The Birds and the Bees - How To Have “The Talk” With Your Kids

June 9, 2020

The dreaded "TALK"...how in the world do you talk to your kids about their privates, puberty, and sex!??? For some parents, the idea of their kids asking about how babies are made has them terrified...including Corri & Jen, who have kids at an age where the questions are popping up more and more frequently! So they talk to Collins Foster (http://www.fosteringsuccessllc.com), an expert at how to approach this awkward subject! When is the best time to start the conversation? Should we use correct terminology? Which questions should we answer? How detailed should we get? And how can we help our kids hang on to their innocence, while also making them feel educated and empowered? The girls also share how they found out about the birds and the bees... DISCLAIMER: If you haven't had The Talk yet, you may want to make sure the kids aren't listening to this episode with you!
