One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa are packing our bags for Camp Mom! Camp Mom…an exciting opportunity to save money and spend quality time with your children! It's as easy as staying up after the kids go to bed and outlining a syllabus of science, art, and movement activities that children of any age and any interest level will totally be into. Don’t forget meals! Be it Mom, Dad, a sitter, a grandparent or the dog next door, the counselor is in and doesn’t want talking after lights out. Plus Biz gets parenting tips and Theresa has a reminder.

Biz and Theresa explore the pros and cons of our kids sharing good news with each other. “I know you got a goody bag at the party but how about you don’t tell your brother?” “I am so proud of you for your hard work on your project. You deserved the prize you got. Don’t tell your brother!” How do we find the balance of celebrating good news with our kids while avoiding the jealousy and greed that often follow? Plus Biz tells it like it is, Theresa isn’t going to pack a snack and we talk to trans and queer artist Noah Grigni, illustrator of Theresa’s new book It Feels Good To Be Yourself.

Find out more from Noah on Instagram at ngrigni or on their website at Noahgrigni.comIt Feels Good to Be Yourself is available now wherever you buy books.

Biz and Theresa revisit board games and card games and delve into the ethical questions and lessons that arise. Do I let my kid win? If they realize they made a mistake, do I let them have a “do over” during the game? Do I teach one child to let another child win? There isn’t always an easy answer…it’s just how the game is played. (Boom!) Plus Biz can see Katy Belle is about done, Theresa’s village gets a new job and we talk to Dana B. Myers about reigniting some intimacy in our lives.

Biz and Theresa wonder if we can still claim Superbrain or if our brains are just broken now from all the continuous input. Is it a “natural” result to feel like we are failing at many things because our brains are learning so many new things? Plus, Biz has nothing to talk about and Theresa has a mother’s day report.

Biz and Theresa wonder if it’s “cool” to be drawn on by our kids. Do we set limits or are we totally broken and therefore willing to have a portrait of the cat drawn in sharpie on our faces if it means 10 minutes of silence? Plus Biz feels like an idiot, Theresa is sooooooo relaxed and we welcome back Emily Oster to talk about her new book Cribsheet: A Data-Driven Guide to Better, More Relaxed Parenting, from Birth to Preschool.

Biz and Theresa wonder if we should stand up for our partners when our kids show a preference for us. “I don’t want Papa to take me!” “I love Mama more, it's just a fact.” We get that this is developmental in many ways but maybe, on those dark days, our resentment might cloud our response. “Well, of course they love me more, I’m president of everything!” Oops. Maybe we are the jerk. Plus Biz gets scarred for life, Theresa does not know when to hold ‘em, and we welcome back graphic novelist Lucy Knisley to talk about her new graphic memoir Kid Gloves: Nine Months of Careful Chaos.

Listen to Lucy's previous OBM appearance on episode 255.

Follow Lucy on Instagram at lucyknisley and on Twitter @LucyKnisley and on her website at Lucyknisley.com. Her graphic memoir Kid Gloves is available now.

Biz and Theresa pat ourselves on the back for past parenting decisions only to realize that now, we’re not sure those choices were right. “They are just clothes. I won’t be mad if you play in them and they get dirty.” Fast forward a month….(internal monologue) “Am I ok with her wearing THAT while playing in mud?” Do we speak up or cram it down and seethe? Plus Biz ate that bunny, Theresa isn’t nice about Easter and we talk to Zibby Owens of the popular podcast, "Moms Don't Have Time to Read Books."

Connect with Zibby on her website at Zibbyowens.com, on Facebook at Moms Don't Have Time to Read Books with Zibby Owens, on Instagram at zibbyowens, and on Twitter @zibbyowens. You can listen to her podcast Moms Don't Have Time to Read Books wherever you get your podcasts.

Biz and Theresa wonder how long we should let something go on that our kids are doing. It's easy enough to say “okay” to our child’s collection of rocks, but when are there too many rocks? At what point do we draw the line? Do we worry that peers will think our kids are weird or is it just about our personal comfort level? Plus Biz thinks some games are weird, Theresa takes a break and we welcome back Courtney Wyckoff, founder of MommaStrong.

Biz and Theresa get stuck holding the bag…and the water bottles, and the half eaten sandwich, and the “art” and the toddler. Where in all those parenting books did it warn us that there would be so much carrying? Perhaps it's less about the stuff and more about feeling like a haggard and broken coat rack left outside? Yeah, probably. Plus, Biz does not know, Theresa gets a clue, and we are beyond psyched to have Judy Greer (Married, Archer, Let's Go Luna!, Ask the StoryBots, and soooo many more) on the show this week, talking about being a step-mom and so much more. 

This is Week One of the #MaxFunDrive and you can join or upgrade your membership and get awesome thank-you gifts at maximumfun.org/donate -- AND WE THANK YOU.

Biz and Theresa discuss family scheduling. Once all of the basics are set, like school/daycare drop offs and pick ups, work, doctor appointments and groceries, adding extra activities like classes and play dates is enough to make us want to go out for milk and never come home. Whether our kids thrive on doing many activities or we subscribe to “not over-scheduling kids,” a lot of brain space is taken up just by getting everyone where they need to be. Don’t forget to schedule time to do the scheduling! Plus, Biz is quarantined, Theresa is left to pick up all the pieces and we talk to Jennifer Traig about the absurdity of parenting norms, and her book, Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting.

Jennifer Traig’s book, Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting, is out now.

Biz and Theresa wonder if answering honestly is the right thing to do when our kids ask questions like, “Do I overreact?” Or should we lie, lie, lie so as not to shatter their confidence?

Biz and Theresa discuss being emotional sponges. Even if totally stationary, we are somehow able to reach maximum absorption. So how does one go about getting a good squeezing? How can a parent tell when to step back and when to step in when our kids are riding an emotional roller coaster? Plus Biz was reminded parents exist and Theresa won’t carry that load.

Biz and Theresa try to answer the question posed by many kids looking to have more freedom, “What’s a kid gotta do to get mature around here?” We often tell our kids that when they are “more mature” they will get more responsibility, but what does that mean exactly? Plus Biz was there, Theresa leans into Netflix and everyone gets rilled up about parental inequality with guest Amy Westervelt, author of Forget “Having It All”: How America Messed Up Motherhood— and How to Fix it.

Find out more from Amy at her website amywestervelt.com, follow her on Twitter @amywesterveltand on Instagram at amywestervelt. Her new podcast, Drilled, can be found wherever you listen to podcasts. Her book Forget “Having It All”: How America Messed Up Motherhood— and How to Fix itis out now.

Biz and Theresa discuss how confident we feel in our parenting choices…that is until someone else is suddenly there, watching! Maybe it's at the dinner table or in the car, we have worked hard to make these places the perfect balance of controlled chaos with minimal amounts of soul sucking. It works! It makes sense! Then a friend or relative comes to visit and even if they say nothing, their presence alone can suddenly makes us feel like a weirdo. Great! Plus Biz has a new insight, Theresa wakes up on the job and we talk to Mary DeMocker about her new book The Parents’ Guide to Climate Revolution: 100 Ways to Build a Fossil-Free Future, Raise Empowered Kids, and Still Get a Good Night’s Sleep.

Connect with Mary on Twitter @MDeMocker, on Instagram at marydemocker, on Facebook at Parents' Climate Revolution, or at her website at marydemocker.com.

Biz and Theresa try to define “mom hair.” Simple? Practical? Low maintenance? Inevitable disappointment when it doesn’t make us look like we don’t have kids? We can agree that calling it “mom hair” is just another way to insult moms. Plus Biz makes a discovery and Theresa is getting really good at this…still.

Biz and Theresa are hearing a lot of the phrase: I want it! What do we say to our kids when they have a "case of the gimmes" or are constantly telling us about all the stuff they want? In theory, a simple, “No, you can’t have that,” should be enough…but when is that ever enough? It's exhausting and annoying and giving in would be easy…sooooooo easy, but there is probably a life lesson our kids need to learn. Ugh! Can we hide in the bathroom while telling our children no? Plus Biz has a wish, Theresa is gearing up and we talk to Kate Schatz about her latest book Rad Girls Can.

Find more from Kate Schatz at her website Kateschatz.com or Twitter @kateschatz. Her book Rad Girls Can is out now.

Biz and Theresa ask the big question…is there anything we like doing together as a family? Togetherness, a word that goes hand in hand with family and yet, in practice, seems hard to achieve (unless you count everyone sleeping in the same house as togetherness). Is there a small window where we all like doing the same thing or is the secret in accepting that there is no perfect togetherness scenario? Plus Biz gives an update on feeding her kids, Theresa is a great mom and we talk to Manoush Zomorodi & Jen Poyant of ZigZag.
