15. Are You a Bad A$$ Mom or a Bad Mom? Perspective is EVERYTHING
3211

EPISODE 15 is all about perspective!

An ER Doctor shares her decision to go back to work vs being a mom. Her decision isn't what is getting heat though... it's what she said about Motherhood.

Social Media is a tough place to be a mom. People complain about all the fakeness on social media but then when someone is honest they’re vilified for it. 

Is Guilt even real? It's all about perspective...

3488

Anxiety

#STAMPGATE is back baby!! Brandi give us an update on Miss _____ and you will not believe the balls on this one... I mean honestly!!

Brandi also went to a "Postive Parenting Conference" where they talked about how to prepare for baby #2. To say Orly and Ami disagree with the "expert" is a massive understatement. MASSIVE.

Stress and Anxiety are everywhere these days. We're going to talk about how we struggle with it and how we try to shield our children from it.

And lastly, we'll talk about a little something called a Fecal Transplant....just wait for it.

9. Nursing in Thigh Highs, Kids who Quit and #StampGate!!
3231

If you post a photo on social media should you expect and accept the judgment that comes with it? You are posting it publicly after all. One photo inspired this conversation and it gets good.

Quitting is a big topic today. If your kids are doing an activity FOR THEM and now FOR YOU, then should they get to decide when they're over it? Or do we need to teach them to follow through with what they start?

An ongoing story begins to unfold today!! STAMPGATE is here and it gets intense.

7. FANCY SCHMANCY PARTIES FOR KIDS, "MOMMY" FRIENDS + CRUEL TEACHERS
2671

Welcome to Episode 6 of Mommy Group! If you're liking the show, we hope you'll screenshot your phone and share it with your friends! 

And 5 star ratings and reviews are also a super helpful way to push our pod up in the search results... jus sayin'. ;)

TODAY

Kids' parties are ridiculous....RIDICULOUS we tell you!! Some parent's are trying to out-do one another, others are barely able to afford their parties and then there's the worst part of it all..... PARTY FAVORS! (Insert eye roll emoji here please***)

"Mommy Friends" was a topic that took us all by surprise. Brandi and Orly have very different views and Orly may or may not lose her cool.

A teacher was blasted for writing "Pathetic" on a kid's paper and it prompted a conversation about the responsibility / role of teacher's in our kids' lives. Should they be nurturing or tough. Can they be both?

6. Sexy Moms, Drinking Problems and Close Calls
2961

Today we're talking about how our "look" is expected to change AFTER having kids or after reaching a certain age. Is it empowering to still dress sexy and youthful or do you just look thirsty AF?

Anne Hathaway talked about how she quite drinking for the remainder of her son's childhood and it got us thinking about our own relationships with alcohol. Some of us partake on the reg and some of us don't but we get into it. 

Jenny Mollen shared something that we've all been through, but rarely share; Those close calls when our kids get really hurt but COULD HAVE gotten REEEEEALLLLY hurt. We each shared our own close calls that shook us and hopefully it will make you feel less guilty, if you've had a few your own.

5. Breaking Traditions, Cultural Appropriation and $ Between Friends!?
3061

Megan Markle got us thinking about the importance of keeping traditions alive WHILE still making things your own.  Is that even possible? Should we sacrifice something we may want in order to keep an important tradition alive in our family? Is the tradition bigger than us?


Kim K is always called out for Cultural Appropriation but it prompted a conversation about the difference between "appropriation" and "appreciation." It's one of the most confusing topics right now but also one of the most heated... We get into it.


Ya know that friend that somehow NEVER buys a round. NEVER pitches in her fair share, NEVER pays you back? Yea, us too.  The conversation started because Kathie Lee is claiming Kris Jenner own her some money and then we realized...."Stars They're Just Like Us!"

4. Baby #4, That Postpartum Bod and a $1500 Glam Bill!?
2432

1) Chrissy Teigen talks openly about her "new" body and it's got us thinking...

Should we strive to get back to our pre-baby body or embrace all the changes and settle into the "new us" ?

2) Kim K is having baby # 4 and it got us wondering, how does the average Joe and Jane manage it!?

She can afford all the help she needs or wants... but wtf about us!?

3) Sarah Silverman put Hulu on blast when they charged her $1500 for her Emmy's Glam. 

Just a healthy reminder that it costs THOUSANDS of dollars to look like they do on the red carpet...so chill with your personal expectations.
