    #15 The One Where You Regret Having Kids

    #15 The One Where You Regret Having Kids

    You wanted this kid. You hoped, prayed for, begged the universe, and waited for entirely too long to have this kid. So why, now that he's here, are you low-key regretting the choice to have kids at all? Does that make you a bad mom? Nope. It makes you a human. A human who needs to grieve. It's okay to miss your old life after you have kids. They change everything. Gwenna talks about her grief struggle after becoming a mom of three and has a few ideas on how to wade through your own. 

    And, for something completely different, Gwenna interviews author Janet Lawless Christ about her new book Nugget the Nomad. You can win a copy of this adorable children's book - head to Instagram, MommaCusses.com or just listen for the deets.

    #14 CEO of Momming... & Yarn

    This week's episode finds us talking with Nicole Snow, founder & CEO of Darn Good Yarn. We talk about running a company and maintaining your sanity. Spoiler: We don't actually tell you how to do it because we don't know but we do talk about it. We discuss the unique origins of her multi-million dollar yarn company, the dreaded Mom Tax, the power of the Mom Voice in the boardroom, and whether quantity time with your kids is more valuable than quality time. 

    As always we need to thank our sponsors for their continued support of The Momma Cusses Podcast and The Fox Sisters for the use of their song, Stuck on You, as the intro and outro of their podcast. This week's Small Business Shout Out goes to HouKreative Creations at thestickponylady.com.

    #13 Mommy's Not Okay & That's Okay: Momming & Mental Health

    #13 Mommy's Not Okay & That's Okay: Momming & Mental Health

    This week we speak with Crystal Hardstaff, The Gentle Counsellor, about momming and mental health. Too often moms feel that we are unable to address our own mental health concerns for fear that we'll be shunned or shamed. Moms are supposed to be all things for all creatures and that's just not true. We are human, complete with flaws. We need to take care of ourselves to take care of our children. From addressing postpartum depression and anxiety to really nailing down a solid self-care routine, we owe it to ourselves to take care of our own needs as moms.

    As always, many thanks to our sponsors for their support and our listeners for tuning in, sharing the podcast, and leaving u s ratings and reviews. This helps us grow and we can't say thank you enough. Be sure to visit MommaCusses.com for full show notes and resources.

    #12 All in a Daycare's Work - Things Your Provider Wants You to Know

    If you work out of the home, chances are pretty great you have had, do have, or will need a daycare. This week we speak with Megan Faldet, a daycare owner and provider. We discuss how to begin the arduous process of finding a daycare, what questions to ask, how to build a solid relationship with this human who will be helping care for your child. We also swap stories of our kids saying really awkward things at even more awkward times. 

    As always, many thanks to our sponsors for their continued support. Be sure to check MommaCusses.com for related articles, more great content, and all our social media links.

    #11 - Anti-Vaxxers & You: The One About Vaccines

    On this week's episode, we talk with Dr. Savannah Sparks, a board-certified pharmacist, and stout vaccine proponent. (I know! Look at us all fancy talking to people with advanced degrees? WTF?) Savannah is better known as @rx0rcist on TikTok. This week we chat about some of the biggest myths surrounding vaccines, how to talk with moms on the fence about vaccinating their littles, and the need-to-know bits of flu shots. 

    Note: This episode had a lot to cover and is a little longer than our standard fare. This episode also marks the move to a weekly episode! Yay more Momma Cusses Podcast stuff.

    #10 - It's Either This or Murder: Choosing Co-Parenting

    #10 - It's Either This or Murder: Choosing Co-Parenting

    It's hard when a relationship ends. It's even harder when you've created or shared spawn with that person and you can't just ghost them. In this episode, we chat with Ashley, the founder of The Conscious Co-Parent. A breakup requires grieving and we discuss how to ride that rollercoaster - both the one you're on and the one your ex has to ride. Choosing what's best for your kid isn't always easy and the decision to co-parent takes work. A lot of work. And curse words. A lot of curse words. But, in the end, if you and your former partner can make it work, it's definitely worth the struggle. And, apparently, it does get easier.
