One Bad Mother

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.

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.
