One Bad Mother

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 wonder if it’s “cool” to be drawn on by our kids. Do we set limits or are we totally broken and therefore willing to have a portrait of the cat drawn in sharpie on our faces if it means 10 minutes of silence? Plus Biz feels like an idiot, Theresa is sooooooo relaxed and we welcome back Emily Oster to talk about her new book Cribsheet: A Data-Driven Guide to Better, More Relaxed Parenting, from Birth to Preschool.

Lucy Knisley

Biz and Theresa wonder if we should stand up for our partners when our kids show a preference for Mom. “I don’t want Papa to take me!” “I love Mama more, it's just a fact.” We get that this is developmental in many ways but maybe, on those dark days, our resentment might cloud our response. “Well, of course they love me more, I’m president of everything!” Oops. Maybe we are the jerk. Plus Biz gets scarred for life, Theresa does not know when to hold ‘em, and we welcome back graphic novelist Lucy Knisley to talk about her new graphic memoir Kid Gloves: Nine Months of Careful Chaos.

Listen to Lucy's previous OBM appearance on episode 255.

Biz and Theresa pat ourselves on the back for past parenting decisions only to realize that now, we’re not sure those choices were right. “They are just clothes. I won’t be mad if you play in them and they get dirty.” Fast forward a month….(internal monologue) “Am I ok with her wearing THAT while playing in mud?” Do we speak up or cram it down and seethe? Plus Biz ate that bunny, Theresa isn’t nice about Easter and we talk to Zibby Owens of the popular podcast, "Moms Don't Have Time to Read Books."

Connect with Zibby on her website at Zibbyowens.com, on Facebook at Moms Don't Have Time to Read Books with Zibby Owens, on Instagram at zibbyowens and on Twitter @zibbyowens. You can listen to her podcast Moms Don't Have Time to Read Books wherever you get your podcasts.

Biz and Theresa wonder how long we should let something go on that our kids are doing. It's easy enough to say “okay” to our child’s collection of rocks, but when are there too many rocks? At what point do we draw the line? Do we worry that peers will think our kids are weird or is it just about our personal comfort level? Plus Biz thinks some games are weird, Theresa takes a break and we welcome back Courtney Wyckoff, founder of MommaStrong.

Biz and Theresa get stuck holding the bag…and the water bottles, and the half eaten sandwich, and the “art” and the toddler. Where in all those parenting books did it warn us that there would be so much carrying? Perhaps it's less about the stuff and more about feeling like a haggard and broken coat rack left outside? Yeah, probably. Plus, Biz does not know, Theresa gets a clue, and we are beyond psyched to have Judy Greer (Married, Archer, Let's Go Luna!, Ask the StoryBots, and soooo many more) on the show this week, talking about being a step-mom and so much more. This is Week One of the #MaxFunDrive and you can join or upgrade your membership and get awesome thank-you gifts at maximumfun.org/donate -- AND WE THANK YOU.

Biz and Theresa discuss family scheduling. Once all of the basics are set, like school/daycare drop offs and pick ups, work, doctor appointments and groceries, adding extra activities like classes and play dates is enough to make us want to go out for milk and never come home. Whether our kids thrive on doing many activities or we subscribe to “not over-scheduling kids,” a lot of brain space is taken up just by getting everyone where they need to be. Don’t forget to schedule time to do the scheduling! Plus, Biz is quarantined, Theresa is left to pick up all the pieces and we talk to Jennifer Traig about the absurdity of parenting norms, and her book Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting.

Jennifer Traig’s book, Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting is out now.
