It's time for kids to go back to school so it's time for us to get "Back to Mom." We talk about how the first day of school went and why we both need to focus on our health. Plus another episode of "Don't Be That Mom."
In this episode, we mostly talk about the city of Los Angeles' plan for the future of moblity, which sounds great to us. It means more bikes, more buses, and a safer city for pedestrians and motorists. But some people already hate it. We talk about that, too. And we have another installment of "Don't Be That Mom."
In this episode, we talk about how we feel about the end of summer and our kids going back to school. Plus, I share my Canada adventure and the books I've read this summer. Sarah and I talk about how we both have RBF, resting bitch face.
Yvonne has another installment of Is It Worth a Babysitter after she visits a trendy Santa Monica restaurant. Sarah and Yvonne ponder what it's like to work at home when the kids are home for the summer.
It's hard to believe that we're on episode 25 of the MomsLA podcast. In this episode, I talk about how I overcame my fear of being nude (I'm a nevernude) and went to a spa where everyone was naked! But first, Sarah and I talk about how it can sometimes be overwhelming to be the parent in charge of schedules and pickups. (The conversation started after I commented on an episode of She Podcasts.) And we have another installment of Don't be That Mom.
Fun episode this week thanks to Sarah and her recap of Comic-Con. We also talk about inspiration, Harper Lee, and my not-so-fun week last week.
In this episode, Sarah talks about her fun moms night out seeing Magic Mike. (It's just like you thought it would be.) And I talk about medical insurance (almost as fun as Magic Mike!). We also talk about the Queen Mary and California's new Vaccination law. And if you're new to the podcast, we tell you a little bit about what we do at MomsLA.
First, I want to apologize for no episode last week. Sarah and I were at a conference and it seemed like there would be plenty of time to podcast, but unfortunately there was not. So we recap the last two weeks and talk about roadtrips. Sarah went on a college road trip to check out colleges for her son and I went to my husband's family reunion.
Next Sarah and I debate when it's appropriate to jump in and help your kids and when you let them get their own cereal for breakfast. And we have another "Don't be that Mom" except that it's a "DO" be that mom this week.
Yvonne and Sarah spend much of the podcast talking about what they have planned for Father's Day, which is not much. (Isn't every day Father's Day?) But they do talk about what you can do with the Dad in your life. Yvonne shares what she learned about e-cigarettes and Sarah talks about her parenting win. Plus there is another insallment of "Don't Be That Mom."
Summer has started for Los Angeles school children and Yvonne decided to celebrate with a donut tour of LA on National Donut Day. Sarah talks about summer plans and what she has in store for her boys this summer - being bored.
It's the end of the school year and Yvonne and Sarah reflect on all that there is to do to get ready - from volunteering at school and last minute camps. Yvonne comes to the shockig realization that she might be Type A and Sarah reveals how she gets out of volunteering.
After seeing herself on video, Yvonne realizes that she has to forever stop saying "amazing" and learn some new words. She really does need to do that. (And stop saying really and that.) Sarah talks about why it's important to teach kids empathy.
In episode 17, Yvonne and Sarah give a shoutout to their lovely fans. Sarah talks about how she got into blogging and what she loves about her job. Yvonne shares what she misses and doesn't miss about journalism and the perks (and oddities) of being a blogger.
In Episode 16, Yvonne talks about how the increase in the size of her belly isn't because she's eating too many cupcakes, it's because her uterus is filled with tumors (benign, thankfully!). Sarah has a parenting question and shares an Only in LA moment. And Yvonne asks the question, "Why does everyone hate my fitbit?"
In episode 15, Yvonne explains what happened to the last two podast episodes and why the change in schedule. Sarah talks why she believes that food products should be labeled if they have GMO's and Yvonne talks about plastic surgery during the segment, "Don't Be That Mom."
In episode 14, Yvonne and Sarah talk about California's SB277 that would require all children to be vaccinated in order to attend public and private schools. It would eliminate the personal belief exemption and only children who have a medical necessity could opt out. How do we feel about SB277? Find out on the podcast. We also talk about Hillary Clinton and why Sarah wants to BE that mom.
Yvonne and Sarah talk about the California drought and the latest rain, celiac disease, and how you don't want to be "that" mom
Yvonne and Sarah talk about Yvonne's backpacking adventure (or near fiasco) and Sarah talks about how the mom she doesn't want to be is actually her.

In Episode 6, Yvonne and Sarah talk about free-range parenting, the superbug at UCLA, and the cost of braces.
Yvonne and Sarah talk about a Jon Stewart/Brian Williams conspiracy theory, why we’re not interested in 50 Shades, and what we’re doing (and not doing) for Valentine’s Day.
In Episode 4 of the MomsLA Podcast, Yvonne and Sarah debate whether the government should step in and take away a parent’s right to opt out of vaccinations for personal beliefs, if LAUSD should add a week to summer break, and where to get Girl Scout Cookies.
