Mom and Dad Made a Podcast: What Happens When Your Kid is Expelled from Preschool

October 10, 2018

Last week Owen started preschool and last weekend we got a call from his teacher letting us know they thought it was best if we didn’t come back. Unfortunately, the co-op we had chosen to begin with operates on a smaller staff and seeing as though this was Owen’s first school experience they felt like he was too much to handle. They also told us we should see a specialist. Tune in to get the full story.

5 Ways to Keep Your Home Safe While Traveling

September 19, 2018

Since Zack and I moved in together in college, he’s been a nervous nelly about leaving our home when we go on vacation and has always insisted that we, “leave a light on so people think we’re home.” He certainly had the best intentions, but since, we’ve learned that this can often signal the fact that no one is home just as much as a consistently dark home can if someone is watching close enough. While this line of thinking is definitely a step in the right direction, as our family has grown and we’ve welcomed more and more travel into our lifestyle, it’s become increasingly important that we take a more thoughtful and strategic approach to our safety.

We dive into Shannon’s backstory, balance, what she’s learned this past year after having no choice but to slow down and what’s in store for Natti Natti this fall.

Mom and Dad Made a Podcast: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck About Parenting

August 30, 2018

Okay, clearly this is a clickbaity title, but it’s only because we both just finished reading The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson and felt there was so much of the book that could be applied to parenting too. Because, honestly, this book isn’t about not giving a fuck. It’s about choosing what and what you don’t give a fuck about, which in our opinion, is a pretty important life lesson. Tune in as we run through our thoughts on the book, how it helped us gain some new perspective and why we think you should give it a read! Download, listen and subscribe here.

After a Year in the States We’re Heading To Europe, Again

August 28, 2018

This weekend we will be packing up our backpacks once again and heading to Europe. This time we won’t be selling all of our belongings, bringing our pup to our folks or moving out of our apartment, we’re just taking a normal vacation. It feels serendipitous that our first stop in Europe will be Paris (also our first stop on our long-term international travels last year). I have butterflies just thinking about it.

Mom and Dad Made a Podcast: Guest Episode with Dan Carney!

August 22, 2018

On this episode of Mom and Dad Made a Podcast we shoot the shit with Dan Carney, fellow stand-up comedian and friend of Zack’s. In just under three months since Dan moved to NYC he’s worked his way into Stand Up NY as a comic, marketer and together, Zack and Dan produce Stand Up NY’s newest show, Super Giant on Friday evenings. There’s a whole lot of banter on this one, but we still attempt to keep a parenting focus with current events, comedy and a handful of travel tips with our trip to Europe around the corner, all while giving Zack a pretty hard time.

An Early Morning Family Adventure and Reflection

August 9, 2018

This post was sponsored by Hudson Tailor.

Monday marks a huge change for our little family. If you listened to yesterday’s episode of Mom and Dad Made a Podcast or read this post you know that Zack is starting a new job that will require him to be at the office from nine to five Monday through Friday. This job will help foster Zack’s long term career, will provide stability and benefits for our crew and we believe will be a healthy, much needed change for our family. As challenging as change can be, we are over the moon excited and are looking forward to what this means for our family in the future.
