One Bad Mother (general)

Biz and Theresa get so sentimental talking about moms and motherhood that we decide to go straight to the source and call our own moms. (Oh, yeah -- and we spend some time blaming/threatening our husbands for not doing enough for us on Mother's Day! Of course.)

Biz and Theresa reveal some big news and (hint) talk about the first trimester of pregnancy! We also talk with Alice Bradley, one of the authors of Let's Panic About Babies!, who helps us understand what the heck is going on inside of our bodies right now and why IT'S NOT FUNNY AT ALL.

Biz and Theresa discuss the ever-elusive notion of  "time for yourself" and why it is so important. Hint, it will keep you from killing everyone. We speak with super-crafty mom blogger Natasha of LittlePinkMonster.com who helps us learn that it isn't all about glitter and homemade cat bonnets but more about respecting your limitations and allowing yourself time for you.

Biz and Theresa talk about labor pains and we aren't talking about the ones you have in the delivery room. Division of labor! We are joined by stand up comic Carolyn Castiglia (Babble.com and NickMom) who, in her single mom glory, reminds us we have it pretty easy.

Then we talk to comedian Marion Oberle who reminds us we aren't the only two moms in the world by sharing how her breastfeeding experiences were not only different from ours but different between her two boys.

Getting pregnant...again. Today on One Bad Mother, Biz and Theresa try to convince themselves getting pregnant again is a good idea and speak to Maternity/Baby/Child Photographer Martha Larson, a new mom, about how hard it is to take pictures of all those babies who can't compare to her own...you know, how the new baby is ruining her business.
