Meagan and Sarah recap their week at the Mom 2.0 conference in Pasadena, including that one time they lovingly accosted a breastfeeding mom in an evening gown, that other time Meagan had to be forcibly removed from a Rent The Runway dress, a sweet listener encounter, and more hijinks.
Singer-songwriter and mom of two Sarah Sample joins The Mom Hour co-host Sarah Powers for a chat that feels like two old friends catching up. That’s because Sarah and Sarah ARE two old friends–of 25 years! Musician Sarah talks honestly about creativity in motherhood, being a traveling working mom, and making big career shifts in your mid-thirties, PLUS you’ll get a hilarious peek into what one of your favorite podcast co-hosts was like as a teenager.
Moms need tribes, right? So we’re told. But what if friendships in motherhood are a little more dynamic, evolving, and complicated than just finding the right group and sliding on in. Join Meagan and Sarah for a thoughtful discussion about what it really means to “find your tribe” as a mom, PLUS we offer 10 kinds of friends we think every mom needs. Enjoy!
Join Sarah as she chats with Christine (who is also a blogger, podcaster, and author) about the launch of Brave New World Designs after the 2016 election, what it’s like to go from being a digital creator to a maker of physical products, the cross-section of activism and creativity, and what it’s like to own a business with her husband.
We’re taking listener questions this week, all around the topics of working outside the home, staying at home full-time, and the tension the often exists no matter where you spend your days. (Spoiler alert: Two moms with totally opposite schedules both wrote in to say that 4:00pm is a totally brutal time of day.)
Meagan and Sarah are both working more than we have in a long time–and our work schedules have changed recently. In Episode 140 we talk about what’s working (ha!), what isn’t, and how things have evolved since the drop-a-toddler-off-at-daycare years.
