This week on a spooky Halloween One Bad Mother, Biz and Theresa discover that when our kids are out in public…being kids….everyone is watching! AHHHHH! Are our fears of being judged or that everyone is “over us already” real, or is the Jekyll to our Hyde trying to bust free and ruin everything? Plus Biz beats Halloween, Theresa is visited by a parenting ghost and we speak with Liz Sower of Ghosts in The Burbs.

Biz and Theresa hear our parents everywhere….and it's coming from ourselves! What is it about becoming a parent that brings out the best and worst of those who raised us in ourselves? Is it nature or nurture or just inevitable? Plus Biz has a sniffle complex and Theresa compliments her partner.

Biz and Theresa share all the things that our kids take forever to do…put on shoes, eat, get out of the car, get into the car, really anything. Should we acknowledge the irony of all the times we say we wish we could slow down or that we wish the world for our kids would slow down while we complain about this? Nope! No time! Hurry up! We can’t teach you how to learn to be bored and to be patient when you are so slow! Sigh. We are getting really good at this? Plus Biz has more cake, Theresa gets ready for an adventure and we talk to Chris Harris author of I’m Just No Good At Rhyming: And Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-ups.

Chris' book of poetry is out now!

Biz and Theresa explore the importance of picture day. Are we team “clean faced/hair brushed” or team “It was picture day?” Who cares the most about it, us or our children? What do we do with those pictures…mail them to relatives, frame them, or dump them in a file drawer? No matter what you do, the real meaning of picture day is to have something to embarrass our children with in 20 years. Plus Biz is forever in blue jeans, Theresa is the sleep president and we talk to Morra Aarons-Mele about her new book Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert’s Roadmap to Getting Out There (When You’d Rather Stay Home)

Pick up Morra's new book now and subscribe to her Forbes podcast Hiding in the Bathroom for more of a discussion around redefining success as an introvert.
