One Bad Mother, Episode 247: Witnessing Crushing Disappointment

One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa talk about how hard it is to watch our children deal with big disappointments, like missing their first sleepover because they’re sick! Not only do we want to comfort them, it also brings up our own crushing memories… “Mama! Why did you not buy me those Monkees tickets!!! WHY!!!??” The good news is this feels like a parenting situation we can handle. If we survived, it probably means our kids will too (…unless it’s Monkees tickets). Plus, Biz wonders if it’s real and Theresa is in a hell of her own making. Eek! This is not our most uplifting episode! But, we’re getting really good at this.
