One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa try to come up with a list of places society allows us to take our ain't a long one! Are parents doing a bad job of taking kids in public? Or do other people in public just need an attitude adjustment? Plus, Biz has an encounter with a creepy dad and Theresa busts out the bikini! And we get some incredible advice about teaching our kids valuable social skills from etiquette expert Mindy Lockard.

Biz and Theresa love how special our children are but sometimes feel like the need for peace, quiet, and order calls for squashing their special little selves. IS THAT BAD?! Plus, our kids ask us the tough questions this week! And, we talk to women's health expert, labor and delivery nurse, mother of four, and columnist Jeanne Faulkner about her new book, Common Sense Pregnancy.

Biz and Theresa talk about baby/toddler sleep regressions and how it makes us feel when months of blissfully decent sleep suddenly turn to dust in our hands for seemingly no good reason. Turns out  we're MUCH closer to the point of nervous breakdown than we realized! Plus, Biz weeps for the mom life she imagined she’d have, Theresa's son listens to her with horrible results, and we welcome back sleep expert Jodi Mindell to talk us down from the sleep regression ledge.

Biz and Theresa wonder when, as new parents, do we get back to feeling normal again? And what is normal? Maybe it's the day we stop crying at Target or maybe it's accepting a “new” normal. Also this week, we have another case of baby fever! Plus, we chat with pregnant San Francisco-based film maker Haley Jude, who is a conrtibutor to and producer of her own video series, Queer Mama, where she chronicles her journey of lesbian conception and pregnancy.

Biz and Theresa explore the hardest parts of parenting and how "suffering" affects our relationships with our partners. Biz wants her husband to SUFFER LIKE SHE HAS! Theresa has Catholic guilt and wants to spare everyone at her own expense. Turns out we each have our own set of issues and in both cases -- surprise! -- suffering sucks. Luckily our guest, comedienne and actress Kimmy Gatewood, brightens our outlook on things when she joins us to talk about her newborn, her nanny, and her new mom sketch series Milk Factory.
