Today's episode is the second in our working mom series! We’re talking with someone who certainly embodies everything it means to be a hard-working mama: entrepreneur and mom to two busy boys, Bailey Neto. She also happens to be our friend and Jenny’s sister-in-law. Bailey is also an amazing (and local!) hairstylist/guru opening her own salon with her business partner this week! How badass is that? Join us as we chat about what it's like for a mom in love with the hustle, but who also...

episode 10: all moms are working moms

Mom life be busy yo. Even mamas on mat leave – ok, maybe especially mamas on mat leave – work their butts off every single day. But whether you’re a SAHM, a mom who commutes, a mom with a side hustle or a CEO mama, ALL moms are working moms. This is the inspiration behind our working moms series, and for our first episode (this one!) we chat a bit about our own work life backgrounds, bringing you both the work-from-home and work-outside-of-the-home perspectives. We discuss equity in the...

episode 9: the one with the dads

This week’s episode of cheesecake & crying is one you definitely don’t want to miss. We’re chatting with none other than our very own hubbies and baby daddies, who didn’t need to be bribed or convinced in any way and fully agreed to be on our podcast of their own volition. We quiz the guys on pregnancy and labour, hear their dad moments (that obviously involve nudity and potty time), and of course share a couple slices of cheesecake. Stay tuned for the blooper reel at the end! xo

episode 8: a fun weekend at the cottage (& other lies)

5/29/2019
More
This week on cheesecake & crying, we chat (lament) about our first weekend away with multiple children, minus the dads. Our idea was to tackle the trip together: safety in numbers! Buuut, it obviously didn’t go as planned. We learned diaper genies and dogs don’t mix, bedtime and floor-to-ceiling windows don’t mix, and most importantly, that unrealistic expectations and children NEVER mix. We discuss our mom “fails” but also reiterate how bad moments don’t make you a bad mom. It’s all about...

One this week’s episode of cheesecake & crying, Jenny chats with mompreneur, yogi, and cheesecake purist, Kathia Fonseka. Pregnancy and postpartum didn't go exactly as planned for her, but she handled it with grace and gumption and now uses her own struggles to help empower other mamas (see, it’s that village we keep harping about). She also shares with us the story behind her latest venture Back to Nature Mama, a line of natural beauty products made with simple ingredients (and that...

This one is for all the mamas who were up taking care of a sick kid all night, but can never take a sick day themselves. For all the mamas who haven’t showered in days, or gone pee alone in years. Who are both the CEOs and the labourers of their household. Who have long days, and even longer nights, but wouldn’t trade a minute of it, because they know the years are short. So here’s to all the new mamas, veteran moms, stepmothers, single moms, working moms, grandmas, nana and glammas. We...

We have a special treat for y’all today on cheesecake & crying. This week’s episode is a spontaneous off-the-cuff bonus show that wasn’t part of our original lineup, but was an idea sparked by a real conversation the two of us had last week that we thought we should also have with all of you. We’re chatting all about holiday and party traditions, especially the issue of PRESENTS, and contemplating how to strike a balance between making events memorable and meaningful without going...

On this week’s episode of cheesecake & crying, we tackle the fourth trimester. Both recently emerged from our second time being swept up in the whirling, chaotic, murky fog that is postpartum, we are here to tell (warn) mamas-to-be what to really expect in those first few months after giving birth. If you’re currently going through this phase yourself, or even if you’re a seasoned survivor, you’re sure to laugh/cry along with us as we rehash our experiences and how this life-changing time...
