One Bad Mother (general)

SAND! Biz and Theresa dig deep to talk about how sand is everywhere and probably full of cat pee but we're going to keep going back for more regardless. Plus you're going to hear Biz roar, Theresa is a brand new person, and we talk with artist, writer, comics creator and father of five, Ben Hatke.

Biz and Theresa open old wounds and share some of our most mortifying moments from childhood! We wonder how these experiences will come into play when our own kids inevitably experience embarrassing moments of their own. Plus, Biz hangs ten, Theresa watches it all go down the drain, and we talk to Catherine Newman about her new memoir Catastrophic Happiness: Finding Joy In Childhood’s Messy Years.

Biz and Theresa explore what it's like when we have a lot of hard days in a row. You know, when you think you're almost over the hump of one problem and then three new ones crop up? It's enough to make a sleep-deprived mama cry...and we do! Plus, Biz's six-year-old now knows the word "sexy" but not exactly how to use it, Theresa longs for a commune lifestyle, and no guest this week means Theresa has extra time to unburden herself and get some validation from Biz, and we discover a new OBM mantra!

Heads up! There are some discussions about miscarriage in this episode, so please be forewarned if that's a trigger for you. Or, maybe NAPTIME is a worse trigger?! We wouldn't blame you if that's the case. Naps or the lack thereof can be a real son-of-a-somethin' and despite a cumulative four kids and nearly twelve years of parenting between us, Biz and Theresa don't necessarily have the answer to the question, "How do I get my kid to take a nap?" Luckily, we get a visit from Julia Aziz. Her book, Lessons of Labor: One Woman's Self-Discovery Through Birth and Motherhood, is a wonderful reminder that we don't have to have all the answers all the time.

Biz and Theresa hash out the possible reasons why Biz can’t stop saying “no” to EVERYTHING her kids want to do, even when there is no good reason for it. “No, you can’t play with that toy that is totally yours and is actually fine for you to play with! Wait, I mean, ok.” Plus, Biz feels cheated by TV again, Theresa survives an epic public temper tantrum, and we ask why so many kids were eating cake in the 50’s?! And, we have an incredibly helpful conversation about talking with our kids about sex and gender with sexuality educator and author Cory Silverberg, whose wonderful new books include What Makes a Baby and Sex Is A Funny Word.

Biz and Theresa try to decide how important OUR style is when it comes to what our kids wear. And does what they wear reflect on the job we're doing as their parents? “I swear my two-year-old really does love vintage! HE picked this out!” When "should" our kids be dressing themselves and what "should" we be doing to help? (If your kid isn't already dressing herself, eh, she probably will once she's in college.) Plus, Biz bears witness, Theresa can't see, and we talk to veterinarian Dr. Katie Gies about how to pick a family dog and how to prepare your pets for a new baby.

Biz and Theresa get deep and talk about...stickers! Where do they get stuck in YOUR house or car? Is permanent sticker damage to furniture avoidable or inevitable? Has exhaustion led to a lack of caring about the answer to any of the above questions? Whatever the answer, just like the sticker on Biz's childhood luggage says, "Keep Truckin’.” Plus, Biz wins big, Theresa has a toddler sleep update and PeachieMoms.com founders Amanda Edwards and guest Jen McLellan join us to talk about body love for mothers.

Biz and Theresa admit there are some (ok, MANY) times when we behave almost exactly like our toddlers. Shouldn't we have more patience for their shenanigans when the reality is we totally "get" why they're acting out most of the time because we'd like to stomp our feet and throw things, too? Plus, Biz gets through a challenging experience with her kids and Theresa is confused because things seem to go smoothly for a whole f*cking hour! And we're joined by Courtney Wyckoff, creator of MommaStrong.com, an online strength conditioning resource for all phases of motherhood and all fitness levels, and she is so insightful and inspiring that we totally fall in love with her.
