Family of Fine-Tuned Females



E68 – Today is a little indulgent as we talk about singing talent within our family. What can I say? A proud mom, an auntie, and a grandma are all involved! You’ll hear Charlotte’s sweet little voice singing James Taylor, and a conversation with our mom, Joyce Carter, on how she came to be a music major with a full scholarship to the University of Arizona. Find out our connections with Linda Ronstadt and Bing Crosby, and hear our grandparents’ WWII love story! We finish by discussing parenting with takeaways for me to connect my kids to nature and to spend more quality time with them nurturing their talents and gifts.

Mom the Type A Cowgirl



E41 – Mom’s in town and she’s busy! We hear about how she moved from Idaho to California for a few months, a dog and cat’s awkward first date, and projects she’s working on. She shares stories about a trick roper, seeing the hand of God, and Weens pulls some cow talk out of her. Then we get into Type A Personality talk. Are you Type A like Mouse and Mom? Do they like being this way? What is it like for Weens to be around them? We have 5 steps for you to balance out your Type-A-ness if you so dare. Take a listen and join the family!

Ever wear the wrong undergarments on a date? Is it a deal breaker if the guy wears a sweater with shorts? We have some stories to share! We also get into yoga, meditation, spelunking, and couples’ karaoke. These hard-hitting topics and more on www.MouseAndWeens.com.
