One Bad Mother (general)

This week we talk about crapping your pants because you're scared rather than just because you're 3 years old. Theresa asks the Great Pumpkin for a pregnancy hiatus, Biz loves Halloween, and we talk with Amy Storch, aka Amalah, the hilarious and insightful advice giver of Mom Smackdown. Plus, Biz predicts that by the time this show airs Theresa will have a baby!

Biz and Theresa review and discuss two very different movies about childbirth. We aren't sure which was more painful to watch...the fiction or the nonfiction movie. We also remember that we forgot to say something nice about siblings on our sibling show, and Theresa gets annoyed.
