Podcast cover

Biz and Theresa discuss the emotional roller coaster that is parenting a two-year-old. Our kids are often intense, clingy, loving, and on the verge of a tantrum. It takes all our energy to stay calm in the face of the hurricane (and let's get real - plenty of times we don't stay calm, and that takes energy too)! Plus, Biz is losing her mind over Band-Aids, Theresa is losing her mind over sunscreen, and no guest this week means we have ample time to indulge in the many ways we're losing our minds over our bananas two-year-olds!

Biz and Theresa demand to know why our kids don’t like some stuff that ALL OTHER kids seem to like. Not liking pizza or coloring books seems like breaking some sort of child law and it seems particularly criminal when the things they don’t like would make it easier for the parent if they just liked it!

Rank #6: 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. Check out our book! You're Doing A Great Job!: 100 Ways You're Winning at Parenting!

Podcast cover

Heads up! There are some discussions about miscarriage in this episode, so please be forewarned if that's a trigger for you. Or, maybe NAPTIME is a worse trigger?! We wouldn't blame you if that's the case. Naps or the lack thereof can be a real son-of-a-somethin' and despite a cumulative four kids and nearly twelve years of parenting between us, Biz and Theresa don't necessarily have the answer to the question, "How do I get my kid to take a nap?" Luckily, we get a visit from Julia Aziz. Her book, Lessons of Labor: One Woman's Self-Discovery Through Birth and Motherhood, is a wonderful reminder that we don't have to have all the answers all the time.

Thanks to everyone who supported us in this years Max Fun Drive! Biz and Theresa fill our own boredom by talking about what to do when our kids are bored. Should we bust that boredom with 10 exciting ways to fill up summer break or just threaten to take their toys away if they are so bored? Both probably will have some sort of effect. The real question is how does it make us feel when we hear those 2 words, “I’m Bored,” from our kids?

Biz and Theresa deal with our kids breaking rules and just being generally "sneaky." We thought it would be cute, a rite of passage for all kids, but - surprise - it turns out it's not as fun when it's happening in your own house. Plus, there's something fishy going on with one of Biz's family's pet fish, Theresa's kids delight in the fruits of their of sneakiness, and we talk about infertility with actor, photographer, and all-around amazing woman Tracey B. Wilson, whose video about her own experience is incredibly honest.

Rank #18: Ep. 296: Scheduling Nightmares! Plus, Parenting Norms Throughout History with Jennifer Traig

Podcast cover
Read more

  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. Check out our book! You're Doing A Great Job!: 100 Ways You're Winning at Parenting!

This week, we take our time and do the deed: we talk about sex. You know, the sex we're all having ALL THE TIME after having a baby? OK, admittedly, we discuss the reasons why it might not be so easy to get back into the swing of things. (Hint: We just had babies.) And we talk with women’s health expert and author Dr. Jennifer Wider, who explains WTF is going on with our libidos and helps us put things into perspective.
