Biz and Theresa finally go there and talk about in-laws, oh my! Before we put our foot too far in our mouths we get insight into many of the issues created by joining families with Dr. Ruth Nemzoff, author of Don’t Roll Your Eyes: Making In-Laws into Family. Plus, we bust out some epic listener calls, including a working mom's video conference call that goes terribly wrong and a mom whose baby would probably sleep through the night if it weren't for dad's extraordinarily loud peeing!

Rank #3: Ep. 271: It Sucks Right Now And Yes, I Know I’ll Miss It!! Plus TTC with Janet Manley from Romper

Podcast cover
Read more

Biz and Theresa ponder the often tossed around phrase “You’ll miss these years when they are gone!” We wonder, how helpful is that really? Signs point to “less helpful” as we discuss how dismissive it is of our present difficulties. Is anyone suggesting that by forcing ourselves to find every moment magical or by never acknowledging how hard parenting is, that we will somehow get to skip the heartbreak when our kids get older and don’t need us as much? No! That's not a real thing. So why suggest it? Let's just all agree both the present and the future as parents will be hard for totally different reasons and show both some respect! Plus Biz is never alone, Theresa brought donuts, and we talk to Janet Manley about "Trying," Romper’s digital series that follows five women’s attempts to conceive.

Janet is on Twitter @janetmanley, and you can read Romper's digital issue "Trying" at romper.com/the-tryers.

Rank #4: Ep. 119: What Happened To My Personal Space?

Podcast cover
Read more

Warning! Our show goes a lot of places this week. Luckily they fall into neat categories! (see our trigger warnings note below)

This week, Biz and Theresa talk about personal space, which is a thing our kids like to act like they've never heard of! Plus, Biz finds something new to love and Theresa prepares to send her youngest off to daycare. And renowned author, childbirth educator, physical therapist, and doula Penny Simkin joins us to discuss actual helpful ways to prepare for a first childbirth experience as well as ways for those who have suffered sexual trauma can prepare for childbirth. 

Trigger Warnings:

Opening Segment: Safe but some high emotions about childcare decisions

Topic Segment: Mostly safe, but does touch on surviving sexual trauma and how a child who doesn’t respect your space can effect you

Interview: Two warnings. 1. It does talk in detail about preparing for child birth while being a victim of sexual trauma. 2. Additional risk of questioning your birth choices if one is sensitive to that. 

Rant: Normally fine, but after the previous segments, it might be a tough one!

Wrap up: Biz and Theresa try very hard to bring it all together!

There is no clever way to say it. This week, Biz and Theresa talk about miscarriages. Theresa shares her experience and together we explore what it's like to go through a pregnancy loss, or have a friend experiencing pregnancy loss, in a culture that doesn't seem to offer much in the way of acknowledgment or support. Clinical psychologist Dr. Jessica Zucker, whose focus is on women's reproductive and maternal mental health, joins us to talk about her own miscarriage and her efforts to make this a less taboo topic with her #IHadAMiscarriage campaign.

Biz and Theresa take another look at the emotional land mines that lurk around every corner with kids. Everything going well? Wonderful! Wait! Is that a tomato on their dinner plate? RUN!!! It's hard to be on the receiving end of a meltdown by a child who is still developmentally figuring it all out. It also feels bad to live in a constant state of trying to predict the future in order to avoid meltdowns all together. Maybe it's just hard all around and hiding in the bathroom is the way to go. It is almost Thanksgiving! Plus Biz would like less inspiration, Theresa’s ears hurt and we talk to author Libby Babbott-Klein about her new book, Baby Feminists.

Biz and Theresa discuss the power of the phrase “calm down.” Yes, we want our kids to calm down, but why does it trigger gross feelings from our own childhoods?

Biz and Theresa make a shocking discovery…there is living with kids and then there is parenting and they require totally different skill sets!

Is it that parenting is hard or is it that living with kids MAKES it hard? Regardless, it's one more thing to add to the list of things we are all doing a good job with. Plus Biz questions the motivation behind some Thanksgiving books, Theresa is still in the fog and we talk to Alli Harper, founder of OurShelves, a diverse children's book box service and advocacy effort.

Rank #18: 281: Am I Supposed To Want A Vacuum For Christmas?

Podcast cover
Read more

Biz and Theresa face the hard question many women may find themselves needing to answer around the holidays: “Am I supposed to want a vacuum for Christmas?” Gift circulars that advertise gifts for the whole family suggest that kids want toys, dad needs a new television or gaming console to escape the noise, and then there is a picture of a vacuum. Now, who could that be for? Are we supposed to only want gifts that can support the family in a practical way? Similarly to how we feel paralyzed on the rare occasion that we have free time, moms can find it equally hard to know what to ask for in terms of a gift we might really like that is solely for us. Despite what commercials might say, it’s probably not a vacuum…whatever “vacuum” means to you. Plus, Biz and Theresa can’t remember anything and think maybe it’s a good sign!

Plus, Biz brought the fudge, Theresa makes some changes and we talk to Jen Lumanlan of the podcast Your Parenting Mojo.

However, we also find communities and support on the wild, wild web. In a time when isolation is a real experience for parents, the internet may be the village we need.

Podcast cover

Biz and Theresa explore the limits of our power as parents. Kids have pretty big ideas about what we can do and it's a life lesson learned that we can’t take them to Ancient Egypt to dine with cats. But what about the more realistic needs and wishes we can’t meet, like that must have outfit, guitar lessons, or that birthday gift they really want? How does all this crushing disappointment make us feel? Hint: Not the best. Plus, nature comes to Biz, Theresa has too much on her brain and we talk to clinical psychologist Darcy Lockman about the Myth of Equal Partnership. It's a doozy of a show.
