Biz and Theresa reflect on 2015 and look back at the resolutions we made a year ago to see how we did! (Surprise: it's a real mixed bag.) Then we talk about all the awesomeness that 2016 has in store, from our kids gaining more independence to us recommitting to doing stuff we actually WANT to do to all the great sleep we're sure we're going to get (ok, maybe not all our expectations are 100% realistic but we can dream)! Plus, we get a visit from pediatrician Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson who helps us get our priorities straight when it comes to our kids' health and our relationships with our doctors. Happy holidays! This is our last show of 2015 so thanks to all our listeners for an amazing year and we'll talk to you in 2016!

Don’t listen with your kids because Biz and Theresa talk about Santa this week! Are we LYING to our kids? Or, creating a joyful and magical fantasy world for them? Regardless, this is a great chance to talk about all the different ways people celebrate the holiday. Plus, we invent a new holiday this week! The first ever "Step Back Day" will be Monday, December 21st! HOW WILL YOU CELEBRATE? And, we talk with Candace Wahl of the blog Our Misconception about infertility and hard choices.

Biz and Theresa talk about kids' books and outside of a few, how totally horrible they can be. Is it ok to just skip pages or not even let our kids know some classic children’s literature exists? What about books about TV shows or merchandise -- “And then the little Hot Wheel saved Christmas!” HUH?! Plus, Biz is desperate to hear "those three little words" from Ellis, Theresa is on the other side of Oscar’s surgery, and we have a blast talking about children’s music with performers Andrew and Polly.

Some people know they want kids and some people know they don’t, but what if you don’t care one way or the other, is that even an option? Biz and Theresa say it's actually a viable one! We hash out what goes into making those big decisions in our lives. Plus, Biz's littlest turns two and Theresa gears up to take one of her kids in for a surgical procedure.

Biz and Theresa wonder why we have this feeling that we're supposed to spend the holidays happily cooking traditional favorites in the kitchen with our children by our sides, when in reality that seems utterly impossible. Is it us? Is it our children? Is it the media? SOMEONE MUST BE TO BLAME! Plus, Biz has an exciting "mom moment," Theresa is still in the darkness, and we chat with the charming and talented Amy Helm about her beautiful new solo album while she sits in the school parking lot waiting to pick up her kids!

Biz and Theresa talk about school lunches and wonder: how did we go from, “Yay, my child ate something to keep him going!” to, “I AM A FAILURE AS A MOTHER! I LEFT THE CRUSTS ON THE SANDWICH!?” Regardless, it is probably time to throw lunch guilt away with your retainer. Pauline Campos of AspiringMama.com and the new memoir BabyFat, joins to talk about post-birth body image.

Biz and Theresa talk about all the reasons we love playgrounds and all the reasons we fear them. Isn't it OK that some parents are following their kids around and others are letting their kids run free? Why do we feel so judgy and so judged?! Plus, Biz reaches a point of acceptance about the seemingly never-ending challenges that her youngest child poses and Theresa makes her LAST cup of coffee (sob!). And, we talk with the lovely and charming Anna Lefler, author of the enjoyable new novel, Preschooled.

Biz and Theresa get into the spirit of Halloween with a discussion about costume pressures for kids and a whole other set of costume pressures for us moms. Should we give up and resign ourselves to sad witch hats? Plus, Biz just finished running the annual elementary school carnival and Theresa celebrated her two-year-old's birthday by taking him on a six-hour plane ride. And Jena Pincott joins us to talk about debunking myths about pregnancy in her wonderful book, Do Chocolate Lovers Have Sweeter Babies?: The Surprising Science of Pregnancy.

Biz and Theresa explore how intoxicating it is when we see our kids having fun and, just like being intoxicated, how bad it feels when we try to capture that buzz again and just can’t. Plus, Dr. Jessica Zucker returns to talk about postpartum anxiety and anxiety surrounding miscarriage, and shares with us her beautiful new line of pregnancy loss cards that we hope will reduce the stigma associated with miscarriage and grief.
