#125 – We Still Don’t Feel Like Adults



We recorded this episode in Laura’s new house! Yay! We both own houses, have two children, want to be in bed by 10pm…and yet…we don’t feel like adults. Laura recounts the joys of moving. Joe is sleeping a bit better now that he’s out of Caitlin’s room. We both need to do a better job remembering that our children are children and not sassy 28-year-old secretaries.

#FamiliesBelongTogether – Ways to Help

Here at Hey Mama Podcast, we’re a little stunned that we have to say this: children, regardless of their immigration status, belong with their parents. This country cannot purport to have family values at its core and continue to separate already scared and traumatized children from their main source of comfort and familiarity.  That’s not even addressing the questions around who is caring for them and what level of danger they are being put in when they are placed with temporary care.

There is a lot of amazing work being done and resources being offered to those interested in helping.  Here are a few round-ups/lists of ways to help and explanations on what’s happening: Keep Reading

#118 – Ask a Linguist!



This week we interview Dr. Kaitlyn Tagarelli, who has a Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics from Georgetown University and is currently teaching The Psychology of Learning and The Psychology of Language at SUNY New Paltz.
