Add Water and Stir- Motherhood is Great, But…

On the 16th episode of Mimi and ABM get real about being new parents!

Parents can really enjoy and adore their kids; however, the day to day juggle of parenting and mothering, specifically, can be challenging.  Finding the right place and ranking for kids in our lives is hard and can result in bad hair cuts, dye jobs and buying sneakers from the grocery store.  In this episode ABM and Mimi talk about their transitions to motherhood, what they miss most about being footloose and fancy free, and what they are doing to maintain their sense of self as individuals, moms and partners to the people in their lives.

As always, the ladies will dish during the Wine Down on the latest TV dramas, along with sharing shout outs and recommendations!

Got something you want to anonymously vent about your parenting transition?  Do it safely here [no worries it goes to ABM’s email] and we’ll shout it out during the show.  If you’re unashamed of your vents, drop a comment below, hit ABM up on Facebook or Twitter!

Watch the show on Thursday, February 19th at 9:30pm EST/8:30pm CST on Google Hangouts!  Or you can catch the show later on YouTube, Itunes or Stitcher!
