Mom Cars

Featured

This week’s episode we discuss another mom sterotype…the “mom car”. Is it the minivan, monster SUV, or the mid-sized sedan? We go through the list and discuss the evolution of the “mom car” and car safety in general and then what your “mom car” says about you! See where you fit in.

As always, we have some interesting random crap from the internet to discuss, including why you need a good friend with you to help check your tattoo before you officially ink.

If Moms Ruled the World…

Featured

This week’s episode is a little different. We are discussing how things would be if moms were the complete rulers of the world. Sometimes we get serious and sometimes we get funny, but always a good time. Pamela shares a good “mocktail”, while Sarah shares how she “dirtied” it up! As always, some funny random crap from the internet to give you a good laugh for the weekend!

Sarah’s list:
1. Everyone would get an afternoon nap!
2. No one would ever have schmutz on their face
3. Criminals would be taken by the ear to go apologize to whoever they wronged
4. Less violence
5. Less peacocking and more cooperation
6. Everyone would be taxed for being impolite!
7. We would stop seeing women as fragile and expendable
8. Everyone would get paid maternity and paternity leave
9. No one would struggle to find childcare

Pamela’s list:
1. No more daylight savings/standard time – only 1 time year-round
2. Dinner could be made and served by pushing a few buttons on a machine, like on The Jetsons
3. Listening would be a trained skill
4. “Me time” or day or whatever would be a required thing and already in our schedules
5. Therapy or other support systems would be readily available
6. Ensure all homes have an industrial-size dishwasher and washing machines
7. All clothing would be “tumble dry” and all dishes “dishwasher safe”
8. More structure in our daily lives
9. Short wait times and/or lines
