Aya de Leon

Biz and Theresa wonder if we're overstepping our boundaries when our kids' friends ask us questions about the way the world works or need our help solving a problem. Are we "parenting" other people's kids, or is this just what they mean when they say, "It takes a village!" Plus, Biz is inconsistent in her feminist teachings, Theresa's kids are taking "dress up" to a new level, and we talk with author, activist, UC Berkeley faculty, and mom Aya de Leon, about how to talk with our young kids about racism, inequality, and activism.

Biz and Theresa get down to the nitty-gritty of sibling bedroom-sharing: fighting, space-sharing, sleep schedules, and more! Biz is afraid to try it with her kids and Theresa knows no other way. Plus, Biz is cooking beautiful meals for her children to reject and Theresa has been whined at one too many times.

Biz and Theresa are glad to be back from vacation and are ready to talk Kid Hangovers! Can they be cured by hair of the hotdog? Is there any way to help our kids recover from a night at Nana’s or the Chuck E Cheese birthday party or is this where they have to gain insight from experience? Either way, comparing this process to a hangover makes it less painful. Plus, we talk with Julie Falatko, author of the delightful children’s book Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask To Be In This Book) about getting work done with four kids and the importance of giving yourself permission to do it.

Show: 
One Bad Mother

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!

Biz and Theresa get honest about bribing our kids. It's the thing you're not really supposed to do but it seems like everyone kind of does and -- dare we say -- it maybe kind of sort of...WORKS! Eek!

Biz and Theresa try to remember what we thought being an adult was going to be like when we were kids and wonder if we lived up to those expectations. Well, Biz did eat three boxes of fruit roll ups because “she could” so that was something! We also discuss what we may or may not be able to do to help our kids become adults. Surprise! It probably involves work. Plus Biz goes on a field trip, Theresa tries to talk about something nice, and we call Dr. Dan Siegel, co-author of The Whole Brain Child, to talk about how we can help ourselves and our kids by considering how our brains work.

Julia Aziz

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.

Biz and Theresa hash out the possible reasons why Biz can’t stop saying “no” to EVERYTHING her kids want to do, even when there is no good reason for it. “No, you can’t play with that toy that is totally yours and is actually fine for you to play with! Wait, I mean, ok.” Plus, Biz feels cheated by TV again, Theresa survives an epic public temper tantrum, and we ask why so many kids were eating cake in the 50’s?! And, we have an incredibly helpful conversation about talking with our kids about sex and gender with sexuality educator and author Cory Silverberg, whose wonderful new books include What Makes a Baby and Sex Is A Funny Word.

Dr. Katie Gies

Biz and Theresa try to decide how important OUR style is when it comes to what our kids wear. And does what they wear reflect on the job we're doing as their parents? “I swear my two-year-old really does love vintage! HE picked this out!” When "should" our kids be dressing themselves and what "should" we be doing to help? (If your kid isn't already dressing herself, eh, she probably will once she's in college.) Plus, Biz bears witness, Theresa can't see, and we talk to veterinarian Dr. Katie Gies about how to pick a family dog and how to prepare your pets for a new baby.

Has exhaustion led to a lack of caring about the answer to any of the above questions?

Biz and Theresa admit there are some (ok, MANY) times when we behave almost exactly like our toddlers. Shouldn't we have more patience for their shenanigans when the reality is we totally "get" why they're acting out most of the time because we'd like to stomp our feet and throw things, too? Plus, Biz gets through a challenging experience with her kids and Theresa is confused because things seem to go smoothly for a whole f*cking hour! And we're joined by Courtney Wyckoff, creator of MommaStrong.com, an online strength conditioning resource for all phases of motherhood and all fitness levels, and she is so insightful and inspiring that we totally fall in love with her.

Biz and Theresa just want to have a good time this week while simultaneously not talking about being a parent! So, we talk about some remarkably not-kid-related stuff, from karaoke to what we'd do with a million dollars to favorite childhood memories. Don't worry, we can't spend an ENTIRE show avoiding the whole parents-of-young-kids thing. This episode has genius moments and failures, and some honest status updates from life at home, where Biz's family has put her to the test with multiple illnesses and Theresa's two-year-old is dong a great job...being a two-year-old.

Biz and Theresa discuss the ways our kids' appearance and actions do or do not directly reflect on us as their parents. Why do we take credit for certain traits but shrug off other traits as being influenced by others or "just the way they were born"? Is it important for kids to reflect positively on their families or more important for them to be their own people and make their own way? Plus, Biz takes responsibility for her words, Theresa is excited, and we are joined by Helen Ellis, author of the new collection of short stories, American Housewife, and more importantly, Biz’s sister, to talk about not having it all!

Biz and Theresa talk about all the reasons we love playgrounds and all the reasons we fear them. Isn't it OK that some parents are following their kids around and others are letting their kids run free? Why do we feel so judgy and so judged?! Plus, Biz reaches a point of acceptance about the seemingly never-ending challenges that her youngest child poses and Theresa makes her LAST cup of coffee (sob!). And, we talk with the lovely and charming Anna Lefler, author of the enjoyable new novel, Preschooled.

Guests: 
Penny Simkin

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 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!

Penny Simkin's books are on Amazon, including The Birth Partner, The Labor Progress Handbook, When Survivors Give Birth, and more.

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.

What happens to a friendship when one friend suddenly has a baby, and the other remains child-free? This week, Biz and Theresa tackle questions about friendships submitted by our child-free listeners. From dealing with the crappy things that come out of new parents' mouths to trying to convince your friend that you really do want to hang out with her and her screaming baby, we try to take the pressure off by answering the questions that may feel hard to ask when friendships encounter big changes.

Biz and Theresa talk wishful thinking, including the dillusion that "if only ____[insert complaint here]____ was different," we'd feel better and be better moms. HA! If only it was that simple. Plus, Biz has a super laid-back attitude about Katy Belle taking on more responsibility in the house (......which is not a true statement), and Theresa tries not to ruin motherhood for others.

Also, Theresa learns all you need is a box and an imagination to lose your mind, Biz has a bright idea that's a failure, and a listener’s rant reminds us that 90 percent of parenting is having to do something you don't want to do. Plus, our guest, Dr. Gloria Walther, is an Early Childhood Development expert and she drops crazy knowledge bombs on us! She helps us with a range of common issues we confront with 3- to 5-year-olds, like sharing, listening, telling the truth, and more. Seriously, you do not want to miss her!

Biz and Theresa discover that change is hard, especially when that change is your precious child starts lying to you...without the courtesy of being any good at it! Sadly, this isn’t one of those phases you can ignore in hopes they will grow out of it, much to Theresa’s dismay. Clearly, the only answer is putting the fear of God into them. No chance of future issues with that solution. Plus, a genius listener leans ON instead of leaning IN and we talk with Jennifer Oxley, co-creator of the PBS Kids show Peg + Cat, who puts a new spin on night wakings with a newborn!

Biz and Theresa tackle toys this week! What's better, eco wooden toys or plastic? Who cares! As long as they keep the kids amused so we have a minute to catch our breath. Plus, Theresa can't answer any more kid questions and Biz just wants to be left alone to brush Repunzel’s hair. Together, we learn that the holiday break may have been a tad too long and no bathroom is big enough to provide much-needed sanctuary from the household chaos.

Biz and Theresa admit we're sometimes in a rut. In fact, as moms we've been in almost every kind of rut there is (other than PODCASTING RUT, obvi). The question is how to get out of them? We propose inventing a new rut that's actually an enjoyable place to be. Plus, Biz gets a free car wash, Theresa discovers a fifth food group called "fruit leathers," and we chat with singer-songwriter (and new mom) Jill Barber, who shares her secret for switching gears between loving mommy and live musician.

Come over to our facebook page where we invite you to share what kind of rut you're in and what you're doing about it! (Or, if you like a tad more privacy than fb allows, post your comments to the episode thread on the MaxFun forum!)

One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa explore the ways our consumption of news stories has changed since we've had kids. Hint: it's gotten kinda hard. Also, riding high from the first day of kindergarten and too much coffee, Biz experiences some beautiful moments of parenting clarity! Which we obviously indulge because -- let's face it -- clarity about parenting can be elusive as all hell. Plus, we find out how to make Theresa punch a kitchen cabinet!

This week, Biz is on vacation and Theresa is joined by a guest host! Sarah Morgan is a UK-based comedy writer who also happens to write for MaxFun's own International Waters. Don’t worry, Sarah swears enough to make up for Biz’s absence, but sounds way classier doing it. Theresa and Sarah talk about being away from your family, entitled moms, and baby-led weaning. Plus, Sarah drops a bomb when she says she actually loved being pregnant! Who knew that was possible? We should probably get knocked up again to make sure we did it right the first time.

Biz and Theresa discuss social media and parenting, from over-sharing to privacy settings to ignoring the fear that the internet is going to ruin your child's life. (I know my child is a genius but I did post that picture of her shitting in the tub, soooooo...life ruined?) Biz suggests the best way to get over the fear of not always being there for your child is to sit on them...forever. And, we talk with author and blogger Kelle Hampton, who learned when she gave birth to a daughter with Down syndrome that honesty is the best tool a parent has.
