Biz and Theresa ponder the growing sensation that it feels like we work here but it doesn’t feel like we live here. “Here” meaning any state of existence where we can stop thinking about everything and everyone’s needs but our own. Oh yeah, it's one of those shows. Plus, Biz reads aloud, Theresa receives a pleasant surprise, and we talk to Elizabeth Gilbert about her new book, City of Girls, and about the impossible expectations we place on mothers.

Biz and Theresa revisit board games and card games and delve into the ethical questions and lessons that arise. Do I let my kid win? If they realize they made a mistake, do I let them have a “do over” during the game? Do I teach one child to let another child win? There isn’t always an easy answer…it’s just how the game is played. (Boom!) Plus Biz can see Katy Belle is about done, Theresa’s village gets a new job and we talk to Dana B. Myers about reigniting some intimacy in our lives.

Biz and Theresa wonder if we can still claim Superbrain or if our brains are just broken now from all the continuous input. Is it a “natural” result to feel like we are failing at many things because our brains are learning so many new things? Plus, Biz has nothing to talk about and Theresa has a mother’s day report.

Biz and Theresa discuss how confident we feel in our parenting choices…that is until someone else is suddenly there, watching! Maybe it's at the dinner table or in the car, we have worked hard to make these places the perfect balance of controlled chaos with minimal amounts of soul sucking. It works! It makes sense! Then a friend or relative comes to visit and even if they say nothing, their presence alone can suddenly makes us feel like a weirdo. Great! Plus Biz has a new insight, Theresa wakes up on the job and we talk to Mary DeMocker about her new book The Parents’ Guide to Climate Revolution: 100 Ways to Build a Fossil-Free Future, Raise Empowered Kids, and Still Get a Good Night’s Sleep.

Connect with Mary on Twitter @MDeMocker, on Instagram at marydemocker, on Facebook at Parents' Climate Revolution, or at her website at marydemocker.com.

Biz and Theresa try to define “mom hair.” Simple? Practical? Low maintenance? Inevitable disappointment when it doesn’t make us look like we don’t have kids?

Biz and Theresa are hearing a lot of the phrase: I want it! What do we say to our kids when they have a "case of the gimmes" or are constantly telling us about all the stuff they want? In theory, a simple, “No, you can’t have that,” should be enough…but when is that ever enough? It's exhausting and annoying and giving in would be easy…sooooooo easy, but there is probably a life lesson our kids need to learn. Ugh! Can we hide in the bathroom while telling our children no? Plus Biz has a wish, Theresa is gearing up and we talk to Kate Schatz about her latest book Rad Girls Can.

Find more from Kate Schatz at her website Kateschatz.com or Twitter @kateschatz. Her book Rad Girls Can is out now.
