One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa admit that when we have those “what if I hadn’t done this or that” moments it may be tied to unrecognized guilt. Like most parenting guilt, while it isn’t true, it still feels bad, so is there any benefit to it? Plus Biz is not in a happy place, Theresa is in a happy place and we talk to James Breakwell, the exploding unicorn himself, about his new book Only Dead On The Inside: A Parents Guide For Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse.

Check out James on twitter @XplodingUnicorn and you can find his book Only Dead on the Inside: A Parent's Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse online and in booksellers near you!

Biz and Theresa discuss our kids’ budding independence…or lack thereof and wonder how much we, as parents, are to blame for it. What do you mean ignoring our children's desire to do it themselves because we have no patience could be part of it? Weird. Plus, Biz is visited by the ghost of resolutions past and thank you notes, and Theresa “wuvs" baby talk.

Biz and Theresa realize that our childhood memories of the holidays combined with our visions of what we want our kid’s memories to be makes for one bad tasting fruit cake of guilt. The sensation that time is fleeting is really ramped up over the holidays, and we try to take a step back to focus on what is really important…presents for us! Plus Biz knows they aren’t doing it at her and Theresa has a house check in.
