Quarantine Check-in #2

6/13/2020
As the world continues the various lockdowns for COVID-19, we continue our check-ins through Zoom and tell each other how we are holding up. We are both having some good days and some bad days and we know you all are too. Side note, this episode was recorded several weeks ago before the death of George Floyd and the protests going on. We wanted to make you all aware of our sensitivity to this issue and why we did not post this episode last week. As always, we hope our show brings you some...

Podcast Blackout

6/5/2020
Hi, mamas. Sarah here. On behalf of Pamela and myself, I am here to say that Motherhood on Tap condemns all forms of racism and violence. We, along with many others in the podcasting community, mourn the loss of all those whose lives have ended as a result of senseless brutality. To show our support for people of color, we are participating in this week’s podcast blackout and will not be posting our regular episode today. Pamela and I are well aware that we are two white women and that we...

Quarantine Check-In

5/23/2020
We have all been stuck at home now for several weeks due to the COVID-19 virus and feeling a little stir crazy. We decided to "meet up" through a Zoom call and record a check-in episode for you all. Sound quality may not be the best since it was over Zoom and we also had to record really late at night after our children went to bed. We hope you enjoy us discussing the hardships of working from home with kids and trying to entertain them.

Mom Quizzes (Minisode)

4/23/2020
So, we all need a break and some fun, especially right now, so we decided to quiz each other and have some laughs. This was recorded before all of the quarantines happening all over our state and the country, but not a bad idea for a potential Zoom mommies call over coffee or other tasty beverages and quiz each other for a few laughs. We have some links in the show notes where we found our quizzes for this episode. We hope all of our listeners are staying safe and healthy. Thanks for letting...

What Moms Hate the Most

Difficult Conversations with Children

Hello listeners! We are back with an important and uncomfortable topic. Have you ever been eating dinner and your child asks you an "adult" question and you are not sure how to answer it? Should you be honest? How much detail is needed? Is brushing it off for another time smart or could that affect them from coming back to you with other concerns or questions?

Happy Friday listeners! We are new this week with a somewhat controversial topic, participation trophies. We have all seen the memes and jokes about children receiving participation trophies, but we wanted to have a real conversation on the topic and the background behind the trophies, pros and cons, and does it really make our children entitled?
