Little Kids: When Your Toddler Thinks You’ve Let Yourself Go

May 03, 2020 • 22m

Having a baby shower is something most expectant mums look forward to… but what does that look like in iso? Would you have a virtual baby shower or just ask for the presents instead? And Leigh shares her frustrations about the free Australian daycare scheme. Are you for or against it? Plus we’re all letting ourselves go a little during isolation, and thankfully a lot of people won’t notice… well, not if you have a toddler like Tegan’s. Little Indi was quick to point out Tegan’s “chooney” was looking “fuller” compared to pre-COVID times.    LINKS:  “Little Kids: How To Choose The Right Daycare For Your Child” https://bit.ly/2YlD2t6  “Free Childcare Isn’t Free” petition https://bit.ly/3d0Cih5  Listener Feedback Survey:  Take our 5 minute survey for a chance to win a $50 EFTPOS gift card https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5566501/ff2ba2d202a9    CREDITS Hosts:Leigh Campbell & Tegan Natoli Producer: Pariya Taherzadeh CONTACT US Share your WTF moment by leaving us a message on 02 8999 9386.

BEST OF TGM: The Neo-Peasants Gave Up Toilet Paper

December 28, 2017 • 33m

While you've all been lazing about on the beach and indulging in leftovers, we've been hard at work putting together a round up of the best bits of This Glorious Mess over the past year.  On today's show, we revisit our fascinating interview with the Neo-Peasants. Meg and Patrick eat roadkill, teach their kids about safety by giving them knives and they traded in toilet paper for family cloth! Plus, if you didn't hear us talk about the woman who breastfeeds her baby while having sex with her partner, you have to listen in (if only to hear us squirm!) Glorious goddess or wildly inappropriate mum? You be the judge. And we've got some excellent kid friendly swear words so you can stop dropping those F bombs on impressionable little ears.  Shownotes Your hosts are Holly Wainwright and Andrew Daddo To buy any books mentioned on our podcasts visit iBooks at apple.co/mamamia, where you can also subscribe to all our other shows in one place.

You Made A Shopping List From My Feelings!

May 17, 2019 • 37m

In this episode, Andrew and Holly speak to Sarah, a woman who got in touch with us to spread a positive message about being a single parent. Sarah decided to have a baby by herself, via IVF, and we chat to her about how she's feeling on the eve of being induced. Plus, it seems even Madonna isn't exempt from the struggles of parenting teenagers.  She believes her relationship with her kids was ruined when she gave them a phone when they were 13. Are you sick of going to baby showers?  Maybe it's time to mix things up.  Some women are opting to have a baby shower post-birth as a 'welcome to the world' party.  Some say it's superstition, some say it's just easier! And in our nailed and failed segment, one of our listeners has a story that had Hol and Andrew cringing.   CONTACT US Your hosts are Holly Wainwright and Andrew Daddo With thanks to Melbourne Mum, Sarah.  You can follow her journey; https://www.instagram.com/ourlifeinmelbourne/ You can listen to our other podcast Before the Bump here;  https://www.mamamia.com.au/podcasts/before-the-bump/ Share your nail or fail by leaving us a message on 02 8999 9386.
