This is basically a show of lies. Plus, we're joined by one of the original ladies of comedy podcasting, the funny and charming Elizabeth Laime, to talk about her new show, Totally Mommy!

Theresa admits there are worse things than the first month with a newborn...such as, all the subsequent months. Biz gets creative with her feet. And, we come to terms with ever thinking just one baby was hard. Plus, we talk peeing your pants with Britt Erikson who is a Pilates instructor with a focus on pre and postnatal care and a postpartum doula. Who knew there was such a thing?

Biz and Theresa are back! This time with more children! After being away for so long without a great deal of social interaction with anyone other than our own children, we have really saved up “the good stuff,” from our latest birth stories to what it really feels like during those first few weeks with a newborn. Special guest, Biz’s baby! Happy New Year!
