AWAS 027: Showers and Sip & Sees

On the next episode of Add Water and Stir, hosts ABM and Mimi discuss celebrating the arrival of foster and adoptive kids through showers and “Sip & Sees.” Adoption showers can be an awesome way to welcome new parents into the parenting club or to simply to celebrate the expansion of a family.  For friends and extended family, the adoption process can seem even more strange and mysterious observing it from the “outside” so showers can be a wonderful way of offering support to foster and adoptive parents.

On the second segment, the ladies of Add Water will also chat about finding humor in parenting challenges in a 140 characters or less.  Finally, as always, The Wind Down will feature zero chill as ABM and Mimi discuss the messiness that is the VMAs.
