Could Jenna Bush Hager be any more delightful? We think not.
When Southern Living Editor-at-Large Jenna Bush Hager gives parenting advice, we listen. Recently the TODAY show anchor sat down with comedic moms, Cat & Nat, in Toronto for a Facebook Live session. Along with Bush Hager, Cat Belknap and Nat Telfer, TODAY Parenting Team contributors sure how know to bring the LOLs—infusing a talk show-style setup with a jolt of happy hour fun. Watch below.
After a laugh-out-loud segment in which the duo offer Bush Hager a too-spicy Canadian bloody mary (a “Caesar”), they dive into a variety of engaging topics. First, the conversation steers towards birthday celebrations. Bush Hager doles out some helpful advice, saying, "I believe that less is more the younger they are," said Jenna. "Because if you start expectations really high, what do they want for their Sweet 16?" (Coincidentally, we also think the same rule applies with anniversary gifts for your husband.)
