Hey, you speak my language! I constantly ask the husband where the sh-sh-thing is so I can air up the tires.
Exactly how wild is mom? If you can place them both in a small bathroom with an enclosed place for them to sleep and have food/water/litterbox available. Go in and sit quietly with them, talk to them or read. I would sometimes lay down on the bathmat and read so I was not 'towering' over them. (though I usually only fostered kitten litters with no mothers...)
Once or twice a day offer canned cat food on a flat plate. Sit with them while they eat it and slowly get closer and eventually able to touch them.
Good luck with your two...
ps...I grew up in Tracy, a bit northwest of Merced.
