One Bad Mother

This episode was recorded live at MaxFunCon on June 12th! We're talking slumber parties this week so it's time to freeze someone's bra and practice the occult while levitating a friend and not waking up anybody's parents! Plus, Biz is unsettled by the quiet of being away from her kids, Theresa is exhausted from traveling with her kids, and we're joined by singer-songwriter, podcaster and Third Sexiest Man of Seattle 2006, the very funny and charming John Roderick!

It's the week after Memorial Day and you know what that means! Time for another episode of One Bad Mother devoted entirely to your most epic listener calls. Join us as we celebrate everyone from the dad who cooked a needlessly elaborate meal because his fussy two-year-old was in a playdoh trance to the mom who somehow managed to hair-spray herself in the face while trying to compliment her children! Plus, the rants get REAL this week. And Biz reminds us that sometimes society's expectations for parents are contradictory and all we can do is try our best and have compassion for one another. Thanks to all our listeners for providing such amazing content for our show this week and every week! You're all doing an amazing job.

Biz and Theresa get honest about bribing our kids. It's the thing you're not really supposed to do but it seems like everyone kind of does and -- dare we say -- it maybe kind of sort of...WORKS! Eek! Call the parenting judgment police! But, how far can we go with bribery before it backfires? Plus, Biz hits a major milestone with her toddler and Theresa tries not to feel guilty when she realizes she's having quality time with her second child for the first time in months.

Biz and Theresa ask if "parenting karma" is real and if just by saying something good is happening with sleep, eating, potty training….anything…you will JINX it and whatever was good will be bad. Just to be safe….let's say it is true. Plus, Biz doesn't know what actually is easier, Theresa’s kids are clutter prodigies, and we talk to Margot Black, author of Where’s My Award! How to Get Baby Barf out of a Red Carpet  & Other Tales from a Working Mom in Hollywood.

Biz and Theresa try to remember what we thought being an adult was going to be like when we were kids and wonder if we lived up to those expectations. Well, Biz did eat three boxes of fruit roll ups because “she could” so that was something! We also discuss what we may or may not be able to do to help our kids become adults. Surprise! It probably involves work. Plus Biz goes on a field trip, Theresa tries to talk about something nice, and we call Dr. Dan Siegel, co-author of The Whole Brain Child, to talk about how we can help ourselves and our kids by considering how our brains work.

Biz and Theresa jump on Trolley and head into Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and wonder if all that singing is just a way to keep Mom Tiger from having a psychotic break? Plus, Biz needs a break herself and Theresa does The Hustle. We also talk with the wise and wonderful Maureen Campion of MarriageGeek.com and the new book Heal Your Birth Story about helping our relationships survive the early years with young kids and helping ourselves to heal from unresolved baggage about our birth experiences. Happy Mother's Day! You are doing a GREAT JOB.

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.
