She began her naturopathic and homeopathic journey by the sheer drive of wanting to show up differently for her family, patients, and community.

Episode 7- Loxie Needs Disney Rehab
Todays episode is all things Disney! Loxie has been asked a lot by her followers about all her disneyland tips (since shes there everyweek or so it seems). We thought we’d put it all here in one helpful episode. On theme, Chelsea shares a win about our “most extra mom’s day at Disneyland ever”. Then Loxie shares a Disney day that everything failed and fell apart, including her dress. Then- Loxie made up a Disney lyric trivia game that Chelsea hated… because she lost. Then we got into the bulk of the episdode- not only does Loxie talk Disneyland and California Adventure- but she also shares her tips about taking toddlers to Disney and how to manage the stress and plan ahead. There’s a lot of nuggets in here that can be applied to any trip to a theme park. Disney Cheat sheet: 1. Pack food and snacks 2. Download the App 3. Avoid too much sugar 4. Plan your day ahead- pick your priorities 5. Save eating and snacks for while you are in lines 6. Follow Magic Kingdom Mamas @magickingdommamas 7.

Episode 6- Sleeping With Natalie
We are Chelsea, style blogger & mom to Annabelle and Isla, and Loxie, activist & mom to Britton Belle. We are the Mom Mafia and we welcome you to spend an hour with us- kick back, unwind and maybe have a drink– because raising little people is hard and we want to help you make it easier- by giving you the two things we believe new moms need the most – Comedy and Community. Todays win and fail is about how Chelsea accidently gave A an ouchie, but made up for it by coming in clutch for Loxie. Then they welcomed their guest, Natalie Fitzgerald, a sleep coach who we decided is truly doing Gods work. BIO: This woman truly does “gods work”. If you had a child like mine, that was not one of those magical unicorn children that allegedly exists who just come out of the womb sleeping through the night… I don’t buy it – than you have undoubtedly been in the depths of exhaustion and despair like I was when I finally admitted that I had no idea what I was doing and that it was time to bring in an expert. This woman is the most sought after sleep coach in San Diego and beyond. She has three little munchkins of her own and is my favorite “expert” - because even though she is the master of schedules- she still admits that having kids is hard and loves to let loose with us on a moms night out. And that is why we welcome her to the mom mafia with open arms- our sleep goddess- Natalie Fitzgerald.

Chelsea shares a fail about how things always end up in her mouth and Loxie shares a total “mom fail” of not believing that her two year old actually could be right and isn’t just manipulating her. In lieu of a game for the week, we talk about two hot topics: The Royal Wedding and Mother’s Day! For their topic this episode, we wanted to discuss a huge difference between us – our birth plans! We both are very happy with our birth plans and our birth process(es) – but we both went about it in opposite ways.

We are the Mom Mafia and we welcome you to spend an hour with us- kick back, unwind and maybe have a drink– because raising little people is hard and we want to help you make it easier- by giving you the two things we believe new moms need the most – Comedy and Community. To kick thing off, Loxie was totally cheap but actually loved it and shares that win. And Chelsea talks about what happens when she gets an Amazon alert that her husband just bought an item called “Pony Up, Daddy!” We were inspired to make up a game this week inspired by our guest, Jordie called “What the CRIKEY does that mean? While hanging with Jordie - we noticed she had different slang vernacular for baby related items so we asked her to prepare a list of terms that are unique to her homeland and have us guess what the term is in “America”. After Chelsea won the game, we got into our real topics for the day and first we had to figure out how Jordie ended up here in San Diego and what the process is like to move continents with two little people. She also explains some of the differences she has experienced between parenting/Mom culture (discipline, rules, food, etc). Then we got into travel, Jordie is a very brave woman and has great advice on traveling alone with 2 kids and how to master jet lag. Jordie also joined us for Mom Hacks- Loxie contributed another cheap hack but this time travel related.

And Loxie started this week- because her win is actually at Chelsea’s expense…. THIS WEEKS GAME: In the last 24 hours have you: 1 point for each time you used Food/treats to bribe your kid, everytime you snuck a snack you didn’t want your kid to ask for a bite, for every hidden/taken batteries out, one for each time lied to your kid about what was in your cup or what you were eating, for every time you watered down whatever was in your kids cup (juice, lemonade), and Chelsea contributed a special bonus questions. How many points did you get?! I don’t know what we win…except that I am just glad I am not alone in these and so we are all winners just to know that we all lie to our kids….

TRAILER: Mom Mafia
Mom Mafia is a new podcast launching this week that gives moms the two things they need the most: Comedy and Community. Although it seems illogical, bringing a human into the world is a really isolating experience. After having our babies, we realized that perfection is boring and it is so easy to get sucked into a world of “I suck at this!” and “Everyone else makes it look so easy”. That is why we created Mom Mafia, a weekly podcast and digital brand that talks about what mom life is really like- the fails, the hacks, and the laughs. We will also be bringing on guests that are experts or have experiences we think are worth sharing. Because no one has time to read that book- we need the 10 minute cliffs notes. Please subscribe to the podcast, leave us a review and follow us on Instagram @mommafianation. xo Chelsea & Loxie
