Nursing & Cursing is a parenting podcast that covers more than your 10 month old's full diaper. Five friends break down all the crazy that comes after the baby. Kids, husbands, sex, money. Everything from the early days of sore nipples and sleepless nights to parenting with a hangover and picking a preschool. Was your kid screaming on the other side of the bathroom door while you tried to find 5 seconds to put your last tampon in? Then this is the podcast for you.
Hi Mamas!!! We miss you so much!!!
This ep is a lil check in/check up and a welcome to our mini season 6 🥳🥳🥳🥳
How was your summer? It’s ok -SAME. If even a mask and 6ft of personal space can’t keep your toddler from somehow being the loudest, closest person in your life, WE UNDERSTAND.
We’re not ok. Somehow there was so summer and there is no school. Just a groundhogs day montage of masks, misery, coffee, wine and zoom. SIGH
And 50 weeks later, Kate is *still* pregnant. And we’re back with some Nails n Fails. All of which are fails. Damn you 2020.
Kids Tell All !
Well mamas, we made it to the season finale of Modern Civilization /Life as We Know It. I mean, the season finale of Nursing and Cursing Season 5. And everything is fine. Totally fine.
To celebrate, we are bringing you something brand new : OUR KIDS!! In this episode, we ask the kiddos :is mom cool? What’s this podcast all about ? Does she ever get grumpy ? Some of them gave us the cold hard truth, and others clammed up, scared of retribution.
And Sarah coins a phrase that will make her a millionaire, or at least get her fine ass trending on Twitter.
Love you mamas so much-what a ride this season has been. See you in the fall! Until then, let’s all manifest a quick and safe delivery for Kate’s babe and A FULLY FUNCTIONAL IRL FALL PLAN 4 SKOOLS!
Parenting is hard enough when you and your partner agree on things(still waiting for that over here, but whatevs) But what about those parenting issues you just *dont* agree on. From: are the kids developmentally on track, to should we say yes to a bedtime snack? Shit is hard.
Do you compromise ? Disagree in front of the kids? Have a low grade hissing fight later? Or shrug and give in ? As usual, We have no idea.
And for our loyal listeners, friends and fans, we are sharing some big news at the bottom of this episode. As always, we love you and thanks for the ride of our lives ❤️
The NO Zone.
Welcome to the No Zone! Mom, can I ...? Nope. No. Not today. I said no. Don’t ask me again. This is your first warning ....cut to us handing out negative consequences for poor choices all damn day. Anyone else feel like they’re just constantly saying no and taking shit away? Kate calls it normal. Ali calls it violent communication and Molly says she needs to process her past. Same ol same ol around here! And welcome back to fails : we got some damn doozies for you this week.
WE LOVE YOU!
This week, Nursing & Cursing is turning our voice OFF and turning ON the voices of Black parents, hosts, educators, authors, scholars, reporters and doctors through podcasts that teach. We’ve compiled a list of other podcasts (and there are so many more) that are helping us stretch and open to new perspectives, voices, ideas, and action steps. Please join us in the learning so we can be better teachers for our babies!

Talking to Kids about Racism With Guest Author Jelani Memory
Hi Mamas. Wow. This week has been a painful and powerful reminder that some conversations with our kids are scary and uncomfortable and can’t wait any longer.
Yes -we are talking about race and racism. As 5 white moms, we know that we have a true responsibility to help our kids confront and contextualize today’s realities in the hopes that tomorrow can be better and more equal for all.
This week, we were honored and excited to welcome author (and FATHER 👋🏻OF👋🏻SIX👋🏻) Jelani Memory to our show.
Jelani wrote the book that we all need right now: A Kids Book About Racism. It’s a truthful, simple, warm, and engaging book aimed at younger kids that has been helping us spark honest conversations with our children.
We got Jelani’s perspective on today’s unfolding events and why it’s so critical to be having these conversations with our kids over and over again as we help them understand and process the world around them. Then we let this bad ass dad go get his 6 kids to bed 😉.
