Those sweet, pudgy things keep you up at night? News flash: they’ll be adults before you know it. In honor of Meagan’s oldest turning 18 this week, we’re devoting Episode 27 to talking about the adults we’re raising: what we hope for them, what we imagine they’ll become, and just how much control we have over how they turn out.
Episode 26 of The Mom Hour is all about dealing with criticism. Whether it’s in-law tension, the “back in MY day” comments from relatives, or your own inner critic (isn’t she the worst?), we offer our own stories and tips for taking it all in stride.
It’s Halloween week! Whether it’s your first time dressing up a little pumpkin or your teenagers are beyond trick-or-treating, we hope you’ll join Meagan and Sarah as we share stories and tips to make Halloween fun, safe, and totally-not-stressful at every stage.
By popular request, we’re following up Episode 19 (Things We Shouldn’t Have Freaked Out About (As New Moms)) with a show all about the things that stressed us out when we were parenting toddlers. From potty training to introducing a sibling, we unpack our toddler-mom stresses and worries (with the added benefit of hindsight) in the hopes that we can help you worry just a little less.
Feeding a family can be fun or frustrating, simple or complicated, rewarding or full of resentment. The one thing it will always be? NECESSARY. If you have a family, they have to eat, and in this episode we talk about how that works – from grocery shopping to meal planning to gaining confidence as a home cook.
Where Meagan lives in Michigan, temperatures are dropping and leaves are turning. For Sarah in SoCal, people just wish those things were true. Join us as we laugh about everyone’s favorite season to talk about – from Pumpkin Spice Lattes to late-90s J. Crew pea coats.
We also share a few ideas for bringing fall into the kitchen, no matter what the thermometer says outdoors. Enjoy Episode 22, and thanks for listening!
