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 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.

This week, we take part in The Great Switcheroo, a massive host-swapping extravaganza within the Maximum Fun podcast network! Guest hosts Dave Shumka and Graham Clark of Stop Podcasting Yourself take over for Biz and Theresa and add their own special touch to this episode. Dave and Graham talk about kids and TV and wonder whether it is inevitable that all children will become obsessive compulsive television addicts. (Short answer: seems like 'yes.') They also share genius moments, failures, and hear a happy mom rant! Plus, the guys are joined by a special guest and friend of the show, the always charming Abby Shumka!

Biz and Theresa get crafty and wind up knitting a sweater of self-despair! What was supposed to be a light topic actually leads us into a discussion of our feelings of guilt, jealousy, and inadequacy as moms. Plus, Jessica Shortall joins us to talk about her new book, Work. Pump. Repeat.: The New Mom's Survival Guide To Breastfeeding and Going Back To Work. It is as helpful and awesome as we’d hoped it would be!
