Rank #2: Ep. 219: Getting Out Of The House Is Hard Plus Bilingual Educator Keli Garcia Allen

Podcast cover
Read more

Biz and Theresa wonder why it is so hard to get out of the house with kids. Oh, thats right…because everything. You’d think that after at least a few years, all the people in your house who need to get out of the house would accept that this is an event that happens and yet, when when you ask the 3 year old to get his shoes there is a very good chance he will return with rocks. Could it be that house-leaving related stress could be the seed for all parenting stress? Plus Biz gets the facts, Theresa is getting really good at this and we talk to Keli Garcia Allen about raising bilingual children.

You can check out some of Keli's thoughts about raising children in a bilingual household and learn more about the language learning app on the Learn Safari website.

Biz and Theresa wonder which is harder, having to be the more flexible person in the family with our work and personal needs, or adjusting our attitudes to be happy about it? How do we find the energy to adjust how we feel about it if we are always spending that energy being so freaking flexible!!? Which came first, the bitter chicken or the miserable egg? Maybe just talking it to death will help. Plus the walls are talking to Biz, Theresa made it and we talk to blogger and author Lee Wind about LGBTQ literature for young adults and children.

Biz and Theresa share all the things that our kids take forever to do…put on shoes, eat, get out of the car, get into the car, really anything. Should we acknowledge the irony of all the times we say we wish we could slow down or that we wish the world for our kids would slow down while we complain about this? Nope! No time! Hurry up! We can’t teach you how to learn to be bored and to be patient when you are so slow! Sigh. We are getting really good at this? Plus Biz has more cake, Theresa gets ready for an adventure and we talk to Chris Harris author of I’m Just No Good At Rhyming: And Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-ups.

From spending all evening by your child's bed making sure they don't get up to super-nanny-style walking your kid back to bed 10,000 times a night to just plain keeping that crib around long past its welcome, there are dozens of ways to handle toddler bedtime shenanigans and we have yet to meet the parent that finds any of it relaxing. Plus, Biz wonders if all kids go through a "rude" phase, Theresa continues to re-learn that she can't leave her kids alone for five seconds, and we get some advice on personal finance from the lovely Helaine Olen, author, Slate columnist, and contributor to The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and more.     Helaine Olen   http://www.slate.com/articles/business/the_bills.html Pound Foolish: Exposing the Dark Side of the Personal Finance Industry: http://amzn.to/2cERYM9 Twitter: @helaineolen http://helaineolen.com/blog/     Thank you to all our listeners who support the show as monthly members of MaximumFun.org.

Whether you're an introvert spending Saturday socializing at a playdate, you're someone with a balloon phobia blowing up balloons for your kid's party because she HAD to have balloons, or you're the least crafty person on earth but you wake up one morning in the middle of Michael's with your five-year-old and a cart full of pinata-making materials -- we've all pushed ourselves to do things for the sake of our kids. Do we gain from these experiences or are we losing ourselves in this process?  Plus, Biz gets body-technical, Theresa ups her fashion game, and we talk to the delightful Chris Kornelis about his truly very cool new book, Rocking Fatherhood: The Dad-to-Be’s Guide to Staying Cool.

Rank #20: Ep. 215: Why Am I Supposed To Like That?

Podcast cover

Biz and Theresa talk about all the little things we hate that we hadn't thought about in years....till our kids did them to us! Pool splashing, sparklers, being surprised...these aren't phobias or life-threatening but they still bug the crap out of us! So, do we ban them or toughen up? What if we just try to explain rationally to a three-year-old that we'd like them to stop? Yep! That will work! Plus, Biz sees herself in Katy Belle and Theresa returns from the woods!

Biz is joined by guest co-host Drea Clark, producer, film festival programmer, and podcaster. We discuss how motherhood is portrayed in the movies, from the effortless high-heel wearing mothers of the 50's and 60's, to the outright terrible mothers in horror films, and the surprising representation in action movies. Drea gives us a movie mom watch list that we can get behind. Plus, Biz is slipping, we miss Theresa, and we talk to Chloe Cooney about her article, "The Parents Are Not All Right."

Podcast cover

Biz and Theresa ask a very important question: How are you? No, really...how are you? We dedicate the entire topic to exploring this question that, although never has a simple answer, has become even more complicated. Have we figured out how to homeschool? Is there crying in homeschool?  Have we figured out our routines? Is crying part of the routine? Are we tired of questions and ready for complete silence by 3 pm everyday? Yes. Hard yes.  Plus, Biz doesn't want to be competitive, Theresa starts a day, and we talk to Iris Gottlieb about her new book, Seeing Gender.

Find out more about Iris' work on her website at Irisgottlieb.com and follow her on Instagram at IrisGottlieb. Her book Seeing Gender is available now and we highly recommend it!

Ep. 348: It's All Your Fault! COVID-19 Edition

Podcast cover
Read more

Biz and Theresa ponder how the “stay at home” order really amps up the idea that when things go wrong for our kids, it is “ALL YOUR FAULT!!!” “Why didn’t you tell me there was an art assignment? Even though I saw everything you did, you should have told me!” Can we just reply, “We didn’t tell you because we want to ruin your life?” The extra patience we have to call upon is intense and self blame is creeping around every corner. Plus, Biz has a secret and Theresa gets musical.

Podcast cover
Read more

Biz and Theresa talk about a thing that keeps happening where our six-year-olds are going along, having The Best Day Ever, and then suddenly something switches and they decide their day is ruined and it is all Mama's fault. Sure, our kids' emotional regulation skills are in the process of emerging, but that doesn't change the fact that it really sucks to get yelled at! Especially after we just spent hours facilitating play dates and/or engaging in quality time activities with our kids. Plus, Biz chooses Curtain Number Three, Theresa loves antibiotics, and we talk to John Kenney about love poems for people with children.
