Dr. Katie Gies

Biz and Theresa try to decide how important OUR style is when it comes to what our kids wear. And does what they wear reflect on the job we're doing as their parents? “I swear my two-year-old really does love vintage! HE picked this out!” When "should" our kids be dressing themselves and what "should" we be doing to help? (If your kid isn't already dressing herself, eh, she probably will once she's in college.) Plus, Biz bears witness, Theresa can't see, and we talk to veterinarian Dr. Katie Gies about how to pick a family dog and how to prepare your pets for a new baby.

Biz and Theresa get deep and talk about...stickers! Where do they get stuck in YOUR house or car? Is permanent sticker damage to furniture avoidable or inevitable? Has exhaustion led to a lack of caring about the answer to any of the above questions? Whatever the answer, just like the sticker on Biz's childhood luggage says, "Keep Truckin’.” Plus, Biz wins big, Theresa has a toddler sleep update and PeachieMoms.com founders Amanda Edwards and guest Jen McLellan join us to talk about body love for mothers.

Biz and Theresa admit there are some (ok, MANY) times when we behave almost exactly like our toddlers. Shouldn't we have more patience for their shenanigans when the reality is we totally "get" why they're acting out most of the time because we'd like to stomp our feet and throw things, too? Plus, Biz gets through a challenging experience with her kids and Theresa is confused because things seem to go smoothly for a whole f*cking hour! And we're joined by Courtney Wyckoff, creator of MommaStrong.com, an online strength conditioning resource for all phases of motherhood and all fitness levels, and she is so insightful and inspiring that we totally fall in love with her.

One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa just want to have a good time this week while simultaneously not talking about being a parent! So, we talk about some remarkably not-kid-related stuff, from karaoke to what we'd do with a million dollars to favorite childhood memories. Don't worry, we can't spend an ENTIRE show avoiding the whole parents-of-young-kids thing. This episode has genius moments and failures, and some honest status updates from life at home, where Biz's family has put her to the test with multiple illnesses and Theresa's two-year-old is dong a great job...being a two-year-old.

You can now purchase a Jumbotron message on One Bad Mother! Details are here.

Biz and Theresa discover the joys of homework. How does our history of loving or loathing homework play into what we want for our kids? Who is homework for kids under age six *really* for? If my kid pastes the square into the circle, are we out of Harvard? Plus, Biz becomes the Big Ketchup house, Theresa becomes an aunt, and we talk to former NCIS agent Heather Ryan about empowering ourselves and our families to stay safe.

Biz and Theresa discuss the ways our kids' appearance and actions do or do not directly reflect on us as their parents. Why do we take credit for certain traits but shrug off other traits as being influenced by others or "just the way they were born"? Is it important for kids to reflect positively on their families or more important for them to be their own people and make their own way? Plus, Biz takes responsibility for her words, Theresa is excited, and we are joined by Helen Ellis, author of the new collection of short stories, American Housewife, and more importantly, Biz’s sister, to talk about not having it all!

Trigger warning: Biz and Theresa talk about online parenting discussion groups! How is it possible these places can range from amazing lifelines to awful wells of judging and hostility? Why do we go to parenting message boards and why do we stay? How can we dodge the landmines? ("I was just looking for some toddler snack ideas! How did this post become about vaccinations?") Plus, Biz is paralyzed, Theresa's car breaks down on family vacation, and we get to know Brian Gordon, the very funny and charming creator of Fowl Language Comics.
