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.

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 #5: Ep. 161: Two-Year-Olds Are Emotional, It Turns Out

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! You're welcome, guys! Happy 4th! We'll be back in two weeks!

Podcast cover

Biz and Theresa realize maybe we have never left “the forest” and that the forest has been tricking us this whole time into believing it's a nice place! We look at the sometimes insane and always exhausting techniques that we implement in order to get our kids to do things. As we jump though hoops everyday to get our kids to function, we can't help but wonder, "Is this just my life now?" and “Is it ever going to get better?” Well shit, maybe it won’t. Also on this happy show, Biz has a worst first and Theresa doesn’t do mornings.

Biz’s four-year-old still eats only a handful of things and Theresa’s four-year-old still has sleep problems. We've treated these issues as though they'll inevitably resolve on their own over time, but two years later we're beginning to wonder if maybe our kids won’t, in fact, “grow out of it.” (Insert horror music!) Plus, Biz is back from Bama, Theresa  remembers that toddlers are hard, and we talk to author Jill Castle about feeding our kids and her new book Fearless Feeding.

From swordplay to walking the plank...I guess we're all culturally cool with our kids admiring and identifying with this one particular violent and morally-corrupt lifestyle. LOL! But yeah honestly we're fine with it, guys. Getting a group of kids to yell "ARRRRRRGH!" never gets old.

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.

Rank #18: Ep. 150: My Life Is An Actual Sh*t-Show

Podcast cover
Read more

Biz and Theresa explore what it's like when we have a lot of hard days in a row. You know, when you think you're almost over the hump of one problem and then three new ones crop up? It's enough to make a sleep-deprived mama cry...and we do! Plus, Biz's six-year-old now knows the word "sexy" but not exactly how to use it, Theresa longs for a commune lifestyle, and no guest this week means Theresa has extra time to unburden herself and get some validation from Biz, and we discover a new OBM mantra!

Podcast cover

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? Plus Biz and Theresa never get bored of saying thank you to our listeners and supporters, and we talk to Shayna Ferm and Tracey Tee of the Pump and Dump Show about their new book Parentally IncorrectTrue Tales by Real Moms About the Fcked Up Things Their Kids Have Done.
