Ep. 65 - Merry Stressmas, Just say NO! (Repeat of Episode 12)
Hey friends! How has December been so far? Can you believe how fast it is going? Literally two weeks until Christmas - blowing our minds! For the next four weeks, we will have a bit of a different schedule around here. Mommin’ Aint’ Easy is taking off! This is our first ever time-off since we started in September 2017! Today and next week, we will be replaying two of our fun Christmas episodes from last year. On Christmas Eve, we will have our kiddos on for a short (and suuuuper sweet) episode, and thennnn will be airing Courtney’s favorite episode on her birthday - December 31! Speaking of that…. stay tuned to our Instagram THIS WEEK. We are having a holiday giveaway! Keep checking for the details, but the prize is the book, Intentional Parenting, by Sissy Goff, David Thomas, and Melissa Trevathan!! What!?!?! All you’ll have to do is GUESS which episode you think is Courtney’s favorite and then tag a friend (or two) that you think needs to be listening to Mommin’ Ain’t Easy! If you remember from our New Year’s episode almost a year ago, our word for this year has been “intentional.” We think this is a perfect book to wrap up this year!
For today’s episode, we talked all about the stress that can accompany the holidays and tried to encourage each other to get RID of it! It was a perfect part two to the episode before it, where we talked about “mom guilt.” This month is a great time to catch up on episodes you may have missed, or go back and listen to your favorites again!
Let us know how you deal with the craziness and stress (and mom guilt) of the holidays. It can seriously be overwhelming. We hope this episode brings you comfort and reassurance of what really matters!
From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:
Jennifer is totally, completely, utterly into my Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer Heat & UV Protective Primer. This stuff is awesome, you guys. It smells amazing and detangles like nothing I've ever tried. My girls use it, too, but I dilute theirs to 50/50, to conserve, because they love to spray and spray, and spray, and spraaayyyy.......
Courtney is totally into The Crown on Netflix! Who else can’t wait for the next season? It is scheduled to air sometime in the new year. Here is the fantastic article from Elle Magazine that Courtney mentioned about the "Royal Rules," and here you can watch the video she also mentioned where we get to see Duchess Kate have her own mommin-ain't-easy moment!
Don’t forget to order (or check out at the library) a copy of our next book club book - There’s No Such Thing as Bad Weather by Linda Akeson McGurk!!! We are excited to read this and discuss it on January 28!
Have an AMAZING week, mamas!
