This Mom's Life

2 moms, 4 kids. We talk about being moms in LA, the chaos that ensues, and the wine that must be drank to cope. Also, we connect with other incredible mothers from all walks of life to hear just how they do it. This is so exciting for us - two moms who love their kids, want to pull our hair out half the time but live to talk about it... because we definitely LOVE to talk.

In this episode, Dana and Nic talk all about middle of the night hallucinations, our obsession with RHOBH's Erika Jayne, the Lifetime Britney Spears movie that none of you have seen, and how babies can be boring.

Our guest this week is the incredibly talented actress and mom Merrin Dungey. You know Merrin best from Alias, King Of Queens, Conviction and most recently, the HBO hit, Big Little Lies.

We talk to Merrin all about balancing motherhood and career, parenting over Facetime, and the different roles Mom and Dad play in a home. We also chat about exercise, cocktails, and the neverending world (and cost) of kid's extracurricular activities. She is such a blast to chat with and we hope you all enjoy! 

Drink: Layer Cake Pinot Noir

Snack: Cadbury Eggs (way too many)

We are so very excited to welcome our inaugural guest, the amazingly funny and talented Heather Brooker, creator of the popular podcast Motherhood in Hollywood. We talk about starting a podcast, tantrums, big hollywood parties, loneliness in the mom world, the life of an actor and of course our favorite-wine & food!

Also, we muse on how the Super Bowl is apparently a good time for "honey-do's", Nic's new diet <hint, it's retail> and going to the gyno is way easier when not pregnant!

Drink: Another day, another MEIOMI Pinot Noir
Snack: popcorn-opolis tease. Lame, no snacks!

In this hump day episode, we go deep, and by deep we mean bodily fluids! We talk all about when your kid gives you the "I need to poop right now" eyes and you're nowhere near a toilet.  We also discuss Real Housewives and Lisa Rinna's bag of pills... and how we never want to take an ambien by mistake when all we really need is a Gas-X. We also hear about Nicole's kinky emails, and how they keep finding their way to her. 

Thanks for listening, we are loving the support! Please subscribe, review and share!

Drink: Caretaker Pinot Noir from Trader Joes - yum!

Snack: Tahitian Vanilla Caramels (TJ's again!) and Little Secrets PB Dark Chocolate
