One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa take another look at the emotional land mines that lurk around every corner with kids. Everything going well? Wonderful! Wait! Is that a tomato on their dinner plate? RUN!!! It's hard to be on the receiving end of a meltdown by a child who is still developmentally figuring it all out. It also feels bad to live in a constant state of trying to predict the future in order to avoid meltdowns all together. Maybe it's just hard all around and hiding in the bathroom is the way to go. It is almost Thanksgiving! Plus Biz would like less inspiration, Theresa‚Äôs ears hurt and we talk to author Libby Babbott-Klein about her new book, Baby Feminists.
