    How to Make Sure You Get What You Want for Mother’s Day

    How to Make Sure You Get What You Want for Mother’s Day

    Unpopular opinion: Sometimes, the gifts we get on Mother’s Day are more work than they’re worth.

    Mother’s Day is right around the corner. That’s right people - gear up for breakfast in bed and the crumbs/spilled orange juice you’ll probably have to clean up for yourself after you eat it. Sometimes the gifts we get are well intentioned but… miss the mark. A massage is ah-mazing, but who is going to watch the kids or pick them up from school? A night out with your partner? Incredible, but are you in charge of booking a sitter and planning the kids’ dinner? And what about the very soft, but not very necessary robe you received AGAIN this year? As Moms we feel SO MUCH pressure to love every gift our family gives us. Today, we’re saying what we’re all afraid to say: sometimes the planning and additional mental load that accompany these gifts make them more of a burden. Hit play and learn how to get what you really want for Mother’s Day this year, not string attached!

    The Mom Food Fight: We Don’t Do Homemade and Neither Should You!

    The Mom Food Fight: We Don’t Do Homemade and Neither Should You!

    Let’s hear it for apple sauce pouches and a side of… guilt?

    We’re sure we don’t have to tell you that social media is PACKED with videos of Moms making some seriously deluxe meals for their kids from scratch, on the daily. Don’t even get us started on the Bentgo lunch box videos. While impressive, these videos can create a LOT of stress, worry, and guilt for those of us who don’t find joy in making meals or just enjoy handing our kids a store bought granola bar. It’s important to know where your priorities are as a Mom and where you want to put your energy - if that’s not food prep (and eventual consumption) for your kids - that is OKAY! We’re talking all about how to let go of the need to feed today and why making homemade everything for your kids isn’t worth it if it’s going to make you more stressed out. It’s like they say when your baby is an infant - fed is BEST and we believe that whole heartedly. Grab your favorite (pre-packaged) snack and take a listen!

    Mama’s Mental Gymnastics: Why Dads Need to Stop Sitting in the Stands with Paige Connell

    Mama’s Mental Gymnastics: Why Dads Need to Stop Sitting in the Stands with Paige Connell

    Picture this: You go to the gym in your free time (LOL) and see a very athletic human maxing out because it’s #LegDay. They’ve got a CRAZY amount of weight on their squat bar and yet they ask for more because, well, they think they can handle it. Now, imagine if all of that weight was to do lists, errands to run, events to get to, things to sign up for, after school activities, and more. That, my friends, is the mental load of motherhood.

    Today we’ve got a guest who is NOT all about maxing out when it comes to squatting your mental load as a mom but rather sharing that weight with your partner. Paige Connell is a working mom of 4 and content creator who brings awareness to the mental load of motherhood and advocates for equitable marriages. As if that isn’t enough, she’s also advocating for affordable childcare (preach!). She has been featured in Scary Mommy, The Today Show, Bloomberg and more! Paige helps mothers put words to their lived experiences so that they can strive for more equitable and happy relationships. The perfect pairing with #LegDay or everyday, this episode is one that speaks straight to the heart.

    Why We Think Screentime Limits Need to Go!

    Why We Think Screentime Limits Need to Go!

    It’s become the most dreaded question at your child's annual checkup: how much screentime does your child get in a day? If you’re like us, you may have lied about it in the past to feel like you’re “not a bad Mom”. We’re here to tell you: not only are you not a bad Mom, but the pressures surrounding screentime for kids are RIDICULOUS.

    That’s right, unpopular opinion today - we are OVER IT! Although a relatively new term in the world of parenting, screentime has suddenly (but not surprisingly) become just one more thing that Moms are in charge of worrying about, managing, and solving. And to be honest… this worry isn’t worth the stress on your mental load. There are all kinds of strategies and quick fixes out there to help you police this behavior with your kids but at the end of the day, we think they end up being a lot of effort, tons of energy, and little reward. Stop fighting the rough fight and relax. Hit play on your screen and let’s do this!
