AnchorMOMS: The Podcast, Episode 102

Tell us you’re old without telling us you’re old. Katie complains of back pain while Karen struggles to put her teeth in. The AnchorMOMS talk about the perils of aging (at 30 something). Perhaps the ladies are getting old before their time because they’re suffering from “momsomnia”. What it is and how you can grab some extra zzzzzs.  Also, dozens of questions to ask your kiddos to get better answers than just “good.” American Academy of Pediatrics and many other experts are declaring a mental health emergency for US youth because of stress, isolation, and loss of loved ones due to the pandemic. Recent data shows that more than 140,000 U.S. children have suffered the loss of a primary or secondary caregiver during the pandemic.  And Karen travels sans kids and there’s an unexpected payoff for the whole family.Mums The Word: Nuuly Thrift!Ever shopped at an online thrift shop?
