One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa talk about a thing that keeps happening where our six-year-olds are going along, having The Best Day Ever, and then suddenly something switches and they decide their day is ruined and it is all Mama's fault. Sure, our kids' emotional regulation skills are in the process of emerging, but that doesn't change the fact that it really sucks to get yelled at! Especially after we just spent hours facilitating play dates and/or engaging in quality time activities with our kids. Plus, Biz chooses Curtain Number Three, Theresa loves antibiotics, and we talk to John Kenney about love poems for people with children.
