Children’s Movies from the 1980’s

This week we are continuing our mini-series of favorite children’s movies. As previously mentioned in our episode covering movies from the 1970’s, there are so many children’s movies out there, so we decided to break them down by decade and eliminated any animated Disney movies. This week is children’s movies from the 1980’s. Pamela was a child of the 80’s, so she breaks down all over her favorites, by genre and tells us who were her childhood crushes!

We get silly again with our random stuff from the internet. Grab a drink and reminisce with us.

How Having Children Changes Your Marriage

We all hear how a baby changes everything, but no one realizes it until they have a newborn and there is a new dynamic in your household. Priorities shift, communication changes, and well…your marriage has changed. It isn’t always in a bad way either. This episode Sarah and Pamela break down how having children changes things in your marriage. Some of it is good and some of it is…not so great. We discuss this touchy subject with a whole lot of laughs and alcohol, of course. And also learn why “it is what it is” is the most annoying phrase ever (according to Pamela).
