Hi.

We'd love to hear from you!

Ep. 105 - Happy 2nd Birthday to Us - with our Special Guests, the Nathans!

Ep. 105 - Happy 2nd Birthday to Us - with our Special Guests, the Nathans!

Hello mamas! Guess what today is?!?! It’s our second BIRTHDAY! Happy birthday to us! We are thrilled to be turning two years old and can’t believe we are heading into year three! Mind blown. We are so grateful for you, our sweet listeners. This has been such a fun project for us, and we truly love every minute that we pour into this podcast. THANK YOU!

If you remember last year’s birthday, we had a big live celebration! This birthday, we’re keeping it in the family and brought two super special guests around the table with us… the Nathans! (For those of you that a new-ish, we are both married to a Nathan.) We all talked about our favorite episodes from the past, our favorite book club episodes, and our favorite podcast club episodes. We even discussed what “totally intos” we are STILL totally into!

We mentioned Ep. 1 - “Comommunity”, Ep. 35 - “The Nathans Take Over!”, and Ep. 32 - “Camping with Kids” in our chat, as well as the book Boyd: The Fighter Pilot who Changed the Art of War by Robert Coram. We shared our stories, talked about what our “dream jobs” would be, and answered a few questions out of Would You Rather…for Kids and Their Adults! by Ciel Publishing. It was a great conversation and a great way to celebrate two years (and kick off our third!)!!!

Some of our favorite episodes from this past year (and a few from the first year) were:

Ep. 87 - Women’s Reproductive Health with Dr. Amanda Yunker

Ep. 92 - Talking to Your Kids About Puberty

Ep. 11 - Mom Guilt!

Ep. 37 - An Interview with Jennifer’s Special Guest, Mai Thi!

Ep. 25 - A Discussion on Foster Care with Katie Finklea

Ep. 19 - The Enneagram & Mommin’ with Beth McCord

Ep. 86 - Mommin’ WIthout a Mom, an Interview with Jennifer’s Mom, Jackie

Ep. 57 - Cultivating Creativity with Special Guest, Mindy Thomas

Ep. 95 - Blended Families with Kyleen Baptiste

Ep. 101 - Perinatal Care with Emily Pardy from Ready Nest Counseling

Some of our favorite books from this past year were:

There’s No Such Thing As Bad Weather by Linda Akeson McGurk

Make Something Good Today by Erin Napier and Ben Napier

Margin by Dr. Richard Swenson

Tell Me More by Kelly Corrigan

How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish

The Whole-Brain Child by Dan Siegel & Tina Payne Bryson

And our favorite podcast episodes we listened to were:

The Lazy Genius

The Perils of Over-Parenting

From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:

Nathan S. is totally into jalapeños again! Listen to hear how he’s making them this season! Hit us up if you’re local and want a jar!

Nathan M. is totally into his new-to-him 1990 Mitsubishi Pajero - he’s a right side driver now!

Jennifer is STILL totally into golden kiwi (it’s back in season!), Hot Ones, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and her Micellar Cleansing Water.

Courtney is STILL totally into just about everything she’s talked about, but for sure Downy Wrinkle Release Spray & Aldi!

Y’all, we cannot TELL YOU just how thankful we are for you. What started out as a conversation between the two of us has turned into a pretty awesome “comomunity”! Our heart is to encourage community and friendship… growth and learning… with a lot of storytelling by us and other mamas… and a whole lot of FUN! We promise even MORE amazing episodes to come in this next year - we can’t wait for it! Thank you for hanging with us every week! Have a great week, mamas!!
