One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa ponder the hardest question we have faced yet, “So, you are stranded on a desert island and you can only bring things your kids like. What do you bring?” Who will prove the greater survivor!? Plus Biz is probably having a wonderful time, Theresa can’t even have "me" time at 4am and we talk to Meenal Patel about her children’s book Priya Dreams of Marigolds and Masala.

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.
