    Fun Mom

    Fun Mom

    It’s the last episode of the season, and today we’re chatting about what makes a Fun Mom™. Confession: two out of three of us struggle with this, but we’re tapping into our younger selves and discovering what makes us feel light and free. Everything from riding scooters with our kids, to simply creating spaces that empower them to find the magic themselves. Whether you’re the mom dancing around the house wearing a feather boa or the mom simply orchestrating opportunities for delight behind the scenes, we hope this episode helps you embrace whatever type of unique fun YOU bring to your family. After all, fun is the opposite of frivolous—it’s rooted in joy, and we could all use an extra dose of that.

    I Would Have Done That Differently

    I Would Have Done That Differently

    Today’s episode is a bit more vulnerable than our regularly scheduled programming. We’re sharing a few honest stories about moments we wish we could take back, change, or at the very least, do over. While we don’t want to live in a perpetual state of should’ve, could’ve, would’ve—these moments have refined us and taught us something, which is why we’re sharing them with you today.

    Our Favorite Books of 2022 (So Far)

    Disclaimer: You may fill up your Amazon cart by the end of this episode (we did). Today, we’re talking about our favorite books of 2022 (so far) and what we’re excited to read with our feet up in lounge chairs this summer. From novels, to classics, to non-fiction books that challenge us to live more peaceful and joyful lives, we’re covering all sorts of categories—but we seem to be finding our groove in food memoirs?! Here’s to stories that shape and change us in the best ways. Can’t wait to hear what you’ve been reading, too.

    TIHWD: Traveling with Kids

    TIHWD: Traveling with Kids

    With summer around the corner, today we’re sharing our best tips and tricks for traveling with kids. From packing an extra pacifier (in a different suitcase!) to always, always, always packing plastic bags—these travel hacks are, of course, inspired by personal experience. We also share our favorite mantras, lessons we learned the hard way, and the travel MVPs we’ve added to our bags of tricks over the years. Plus, you’ll hear Ashlee and Katie gasp in disbelief at Jill’s gross-but-heartwarming story about something a stranger did for her at an airport.

    This episode is sponsored by our favorite travel MVP of all time: SNACKS. (Just kidding. We have no sponsors. This episode is brought to you by our Patrons. As always.)
    Whether you’re heading out for a long weekend or an international adventure this summer, we hope you have a memorable time! Don’t forget: just say no to supersize Gatorade.

    Praying for Your Kids with Shekea Moreno

    Praying for Your Kids with Shekea Moreno

    We’re honored to have Shekea Moreno on the show today, shining some light on the holy work of praying for our kids. We chat about why prayer is so important in the first place, some ideas for what to pray about (besides the one we all know a little too well: our kids’ obedience 😉), and maybe most importantly, the reminder that prayer is what tethers us to God’s presence, and that’s what we need most in motherhood.  This show is brought to you ad-free by our generous and loving Patreon community.

    We Can't Be The Only Ones

    We Can't Be The Only Ones

    From less-than-perfect dental hygiene to hoarding half a dozen beverages on the nightstand, today we’re dishing about the little quirks that make us who we are, inspired by the “I Can’t Be The Only One” chapter of Amy Krause Rosenthal’s Textbook. Join us for a number of (mostly shallow but occasionally deep) confessions, including but not limited to: throw up foods, the sheer satisfaction of carrying groceries in from the car in a single trip, and our complicated feelings around Botox and TikTok.  This show is brought to you ad-free by our generous and loving Patreon community.

I am addicted

Hello Ladies,

I just wanted to let you know that I love your podcast and I listen to it everyday, new and old episodes ❤️. All the ladies are so Authentic, and real. I am a mom of 3 grown children and 2 grown bonus children. I have 2 grandsons that are 6 years old, they are 6 month apart cousins.

I wish I had something like this as a young mom it would have changed so much. I can relate to so much and maybe thats why I enjoy listening so much. Even though I haven’t been a young mom for years it heals a lot of things inside knowing I wasn’t actually alone all those years.

Keep doing what your doing.

Love this podcast!

I have enjoyed this podcast for years!! A kindergarten teacher actually recommended it to me during summer tutoring (disclaimer she did not have children at the time) I find it so helpful in my parenting journey. The hosts point out the topics that you already know (sometimes you don’t know!) but it is super helpful to hear that other moms encounter the same struggles and that I honestly feel the mission of their show each time I tune in.

Not the same C+C vibes

I used to LOVE this podcast. It was light hearted, honest and relatable - all while being funny! The new cohosts are just not the same vibe and honestly it's boring and feels overly scripted. April, Ashley and Indiana just had such great chemistry, that's hard to get. I come on the podcast and listen to the old episodes.
