Do you ever feel ancient compared to a lot of your friends? Or like an innocent little kid? This week we talk about the intergenerational nature of our friendship and why Carrie, a Gen Xer, sometimes feels like she’s on a different plane than millennials Danie and Nicole. We discuss our differing life experiences, how our ages might affect our parenting styles, and why Carrie consistently can’t find her Google docs while Nicole doesn’t know what a Trapper Keeper is.
Even when we are down a host, we still have a lot to nerd out about - namely, books and TV shows. (And don’t worry, we will all be back together soon!) This topic was a listener requested topic and did we ever have fun with it! We definitely nerd out about our love for all things books (hello, goodreads!) and what we are currently binging on Netflix. We also briefly express a concern about too much screen time… but, with quarantining still a thing, decide to not let it get us too concerned.
We did it! We made it to 2021! In this episode we revisit our very first episode - resolutions. (You know, the resolutions we made thinking 2020 was going to be our year!) Carrie revisits her anti-resolutions, Danie realizes her resolutions were about “spending more time with family” and “slowing down” (Nailed it!), and Nicole revisits her creative resolutions. We all mull about what resolutions we cautiously want to make going into 2021.
Congrats, everyone — we’ve almost made it to the end of 2020! In this episode, we reflect on this past year and the ways it changed and challenged us. From travel plans to virtual learning, the struggle was real ... but there were also valuable lessons and silver linings. Here’s to 2021 and a new chapter for us all!
Merry Christmas to all of you from WAF! This week we’ve got a festive little minisode dedicated to Father Christmas himself, the one and only Santa Claus. As is usually the case for us, we all had different experiences with Santa growing up and, as parents, our feelings on how to approach the subject of him with our own kids aren’t exactly straightforward. Do we feel ok lying to our kids about something so big? Is Santa a necessary part of the magic of Christmas? Would we rather just get all the credit for the presents ourselves?
