The ladies celebrate Easter with some vodka infused jelly beans. Opinions on this week’s drink were mixed.
“Mommy’s Easter Basket”
* 1 part Vodka infused jelly beans
* 3 parts champagne
* Squeezed lemon wedge
Tawny – Chickens, Book – Heaven Is For Real
Krissi – Delicia (alcohol)
Lindsay – Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy (podcast) and Hyster Sisters (app)
Beth – Justin Timberlake – “The 20/20 Experience”
During the fabulous find portion of the episode, Lindsay talks about her recent hysterectomy – four days in the hospital, bleeding, the pain, and going back to work. I bet you didn’t know one of the end results of a hysterectomy is a baby…just a different kind.
Tawny brings up a tragedy in our local area. A mobile-home fire in Sherrard, Illinois killed a mother, a daughter and three of the daughter’s friends that were over for a sleepover. There is a fund at a local bank to help the families through this time of loss. If you would like help the families, donations can be made to the Viager Family Fund or the Harker Family Fund and mailed to:
1st Community Bank
PO Box 455
Sherrard, IL 61281
For the second episode in a row, we have a listener-submitted topic. Emily asks:
Hi ladies I have a topic for you for on of your shows(if it hasn’t come up before) and hopefully I can benefit from the discussion…my son is 16 months and has been sick off and on, never really recovering fully, since October! He used to be such a good eater and sleeper and now doesn’t do either well! A few questions…does anyone have good sleep tricks, recommendations for immune boosters, and attitude adjustments ? Love listening to you girls, feel like I’m spending time with my girl friends!!!
Krissi talks about some of the long illnesses her kids have gone through and suggested considering taking the little guy to a chiropractor. Lindsay and Beth talk about the eating issues they are going through with their kids and they consider the possibility that it’s an age issue.
This also leads into some discussion on the benefits of Vitamin D, bioflavonoids and child constipation. Then Krissi utters would could be the best quote in the history of this podcast, “I have done way more things with my kids’ butt-holes than you want to know about, people.”
The ladies then get into the sleep/bed-time discussion. This isn’t the first time we’ve talked about this issue and it probably won’t be the last. It is something that parents and their children deal with for many years.
Patrick takes Mimi and Peanut to their check-ups and…Junior ends up needing surgery from the appointment. Beth’s friend had her baby in her hallway this week. She was in the shower and felt like she had to push and was able to make it to the hallway.
Then we get into the “attitude adjustment” portion of Emily’s question. Options discusses are: naughty chair, dropping kids off at “bad girls school”, the Spazz Patrol, and threatening to kill the Easter Bunny.
