Holiday Bonus Episode! There are so many ways that family gatherings can stress us out—whether it’s what your family expects of you, what you expect of them, what might be said (or unsaid, or yelled…) at the dinner table, or even just seeing certain family members. Momma B is here with her motherly mental health advice to help you improve your holiday cheer. And get ready for our goofiest episode yet as Momma B & Rebecca put on their detective caps to investigate some cases of holiday hazards. We call it MomNet! On this episode we’ll investigate three cases: The Case of the Solo Sautéer, The Case of the Caloric Questioner, and the Case of the Bickering Bros.

A little more on our three cases for this episode:
And as they say on DragNet, “the names are made up but the problems are real”
The Case of the Solo Sauter: Jessica is a professional cook. Every year, her lovely family assumes she will cook them up the most delicious holiday feast. This has gotten old for Jessica after 6 years of cooking and even worse! getting minimal help with the dishes and clean-up after. How can Jessica change this tradition she’s come to hate without making her family hangry?
The Case of the Caloric Questioner: Fiona is just about to sit down for her fam’s Southern feast. As she reaches for the gravy ladle, her mother leans in and intercepts her hand, “Honey, once on the lips, always on the hips. How’s that diet going?" How does Fiona avoid exploding on her mother like she has in years past?
The Case of the Bickering Bros: Sammy and his brother can't be in the same room
