So, we all need a break and some fun, especially right now, so we decided to quiz each other and have some laughs. This was recorded before all of the quarantines happening all over our state and the country, but not a bad idea for a potential Zoom mommies call over coffee or other tasty beverages and quiz each other for a few laughs. We have some links in the show notes where we found our quizzes for this episode.
We hope all of our listeners are staying safe and healthy. Thanks for letting us entertain you!

What is a Leap Year?
We don’t always admit that there are things we must do as moms that we completely hate. We want to hide, secretly roll our eyes, or pretend we absolutely love it while moaning on the inside. This episode covers all of that! Sarah and Pamela discuss the things they hate the most with motherhood. Please note, we are not saying we hate being moms or hate motherhood at all! What we are saying is there are some tasks or responsibilities as moms that we do not like/care for/want to do. We think this topic is so relevant now during our social distancing! Grab something good to drink and see if you agree with our thoughts. We would love to hear your own and share them on our show (anonymously, if you want)! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Side note: We recorded several episodes before the stay-at-home order was issued for our state of North Carolina. This episode was recorded back in February, so some topics we discussed will be a little old.
In this week’s episode, we discuss the importance of continuing your interests or hobbies or pursuing new ones while also navigating the world of motherhood. We discuss the research behind the importance and steps on how to get yourself motivated to get started (if you need to).

You have probably heard one before…”you can’t be having a girl, you are carrying too low” or “don’t cut a baby’s hair too soon, it won’t grow back”, old wives’ tales that have been passed down through generations. Do any of these “tales” have an ounce of truth to them? In this episode we cover old wives’ tales for conception, pregnancy, and taking care of infants and these tales are pretty funny. We also discuss some of their origins and whether or not they are completely false. Grab yourself a snack and drink and see if you have heard any of these before. Also, feel free to share any tales we didn’t cover by emailing us at email@example.com.

This week’s topic is a little off-beat as we discuss “mom clothes”. There are always lots of jokes about different “mom styles”, even an SNL skit on “mom jeans” but we wanted to take it a little bit further. We talk about our own styles and what we like to wear, how having children has even changed our style, what other “mom styles” are out there for you.

We have a special treat for you all this week. We have a fun minisode where we quiz each other, including our knowledge of the T.V. show Friends.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy some good laughs.
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!

This episode we are discussing the different worries children have by their age group. We primarily focus on the younger ages up to the tween ages, but offer additional information below to those who have older children. We were both amazed and surprised what children do truly worry about and why at these young ages. We hope this information is helpful to you as you navigate your way through these different stages with your children.
