This is not a drill.

The OG everyone-can-relate-viral-social media Moms are HERE. Yes, I'm talking about Cat & Nat: best-selling authors, podcasters, content creators, and fellow-mom cheerleaders.

I am a BIG fan of these two women, and I'm so grateful they took the time to join me for this episode. They are honest and so, so real: you won't want to miss their advice on the different stages of parenting, making mom friends, and yes - even some sex confessions.

Episode Highlights:

  • How "Cat & Nat" the brand was born
  • Changing the narrative of the "Perfect Mom"
  • Parenting advice for a few seasons ahead
  • How your mindset shifts as kids get older
  • Making mom friends - why is it so hard?
  • Setting boundaries online
  • Focusing on health out of necessity, not vanity

From catandnat.ca:

With seven kids between the two of them, Cat & Nat know just how lonely and isolating motherhood can be. So, they set out on a mission to bring women and moms together by hosting dinner parties and events - with wine and without babies. The events garnered huge success in Toronto and were talked about all over, leading Cat & Nat to take things to the next level and break into the online world to reach more people and connect women and moms everywhere.

Cat & Nat's rapidly-exploding community of like-minded moms tune in every day to watch them rewrite the paradigm of “the perfect mom.” With honesty and humor, Cat & Nat dismantle the unrealistic portrayals of motherhood that are often presented throughout social and traditional media. Through their virally famous #MOMTRUTHS videos, which have garnered hundreds of millions of views, their Facebook Lives and Instagram stories, their best-selling book, and iHeartRadio award nominated podcast, Cat & Nat share everything moms think but are too afraid to talk about. Over the past few years, Cat & Nat have taken their #MOMTRUTHS on the road, performing over 100 live shows across North America.
