The Ultimate Confession Session

THE PLAY DATE WHERE THE ONLY THING WE’RE SPILLING IS OUR SECRETS

. . .

Amanda and Juliet here! Two sisters, total of 4 kids and a whole lot of shit talking. Vodka and Juice boxes is an idea my husband and I (Amanda) came up with after talking in our kitchen one night about how incredibly crazy being a parent actually is compared to the way everybody else describes it. “You should start a podcast” he said.. so here it is. The point of our podcast is to talk about real life parenting, with no judgement and very little censorship. This isn’t us telling you what to do. This is a safe place for moms and parents to let it all out. So Join my sister and I twice a month to complain about parenting and laugh at each other because we’re not alone. The no sleep, public meltdowns, lying , getting your kid to eat, how you’re sick and tired of poop and fart jokes, carpool, and so much more!

Meet Your New Best Friends!

AMANDA & JULIET

We are two sisters from Southern California. Between the two of us, we have 4 very fun, wild, crazy, needy and emotional kids. I (Amanda) have two girls age 5.5 and 1 mo. Juliet, my older and brilliant sister (she typed that, not me LOL) has two boys, ages 4 and 1.5. Both married to pretty awesome guys who never miss a podcast and not gonna lie, have a cocktail waiting for us when we get home from each recording. We were raised by the most incredible mother, Debbie, single mom of five… Yes there are more of us… who taught us to always be true to ourselves while never leaving anyone behind. “It’s not our place to judge. Don’t tear down, but lift up,” were some of the life lessons we were brought up with. After having kids, we kept seeing time and time again, in person and all over the media, how moms judge, compare and tear down … well, we are sick of it. It’s time to tell it how it is. Share our tears, our jokes and drinks with other moms who need a safe sounding board.

Everyone says time flies by so cherish them while they are young… This couldn’t be truer for our next Special Guest Mom, Jennifer Lovely, who has two grown boys. From the beginning to this very moment, hear Jennifer’s story of raising her boys. From marriage to divorce, single mother to step-mother, alone, to thriving. This woman has experienced it all and she has some insight to share.

We know we all struggle with this one. We have tried it all … The calm approach, trying to explain, reason, offer choices, taking things away, screaming, spanking, time-outs to simply walking out. UGH We are all exhausted. We all have guilt. Some ways work, and some ways don’t. So we are getting together, with special guest dad, Ray, who is cool, calm and collective and has some discipline tactics that work really well for his son, and special quest Mom, Jessica, who is looking for any advice she can get for her little man. Amanda and I are about to throw in the towel with our kids, so it’s time to brainstorm and see how to raise respectful little brats.

Another heartbreaking yet inspiring topic for all of you. A topic that so many of us have experienced and that stays with us for life. Join us, with special guest mom, Brandi, who will share her experiences of multiple miscarriages, the emotional and physical effect of such a loss, the change in her body and mental state, to and where she and her family are today.

That’s right, for us here in SoCal, Summer is making its bright shiny presence and we are itching for beach days, pool days, hotel days, road trips, movies in the park and so much more. So tune in with us and returning firecracker mom, Jessica, as we share some of our favorite summer spots and things to do on the cheap … and not so cheap!

Featured Drink

LAVENDER LEMONADE MARTINI

It’s time to get real fancy and make a legit cocktail. We found this Lavender Lemonade Martini from Creative Culinary

Here’s the recipe:

The Simple Syrup:
Bring to boil 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 sugar. Once the sugar is completely dissolved, remove from heat and add 6 sprigs of lavender. Let the mixture cool completely. We actually let the lavender simmer for 5 min and then cooled. Your call.

The cocktail:
Strain the lavender simple syrup into a pitcher, add 1/2 of fresh lemon juice (we got ours at Sprouts) add 4oz of Vodka (or more if you are Amanda) Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add your desired amount for one or two glasses. Shake until VERY cold.
Pour into your martini glass and garnish with a lemon slice and a sprig of lavender.

Drink … REPEAT!
