Biz and Theresa talk about taking our kids to the doctor and giving them shots! Guess who has no emotional issues seeing her kids get shots? Hint: Her name rhymes with Beresa. Plus, Theresa has a problem with sharing and Biz is shocked to discover her son only wants to touch his penis….ever. If that isn’t fun enough, the show wraps up with a call to the wise, funny, and extremely pregnant host of Sawbones, Dr. Sydnee McElroy, for a discussion about vaccines! Best episode ever!

Biz and Theresa talk about our eldest kids' birthday parties, what constitutes a momentous age, and how, when kids age, it means parents age! NOOOOOO!!!! Plus, the Universe reminds Theresa she can’t go anywhere…ever, and must be tethered to her baby at all times. Biz moves Ellis into his own room but keeps the emotional baggage with her. Toni Hammer of the blog Is It Bedtime Yet, Stories From a Mom Who Never Wanted the Job joins us to tell us how well people respond to the idea that she didn’t plan on being a mom. (Obviously, everyone is super understanding.)

One Bad Mother Episode 66: Guest Host Sarah Morgan Talks Motherhood & Baby-Led Weaning

Sarah Morgan

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 talk about leaving...forever. Just kidding. We talk about the joys of dragging a screaming, unhappy child away from...anywhere! You name it: parks, play dates, Chuck E Cheese. How do we deal with it? Hint: cash bribes do not sway two-year-olds. Plus, Theresa learns there are some things more important than the fact that her kids are tired (who knew?) and Biz decides to try to shift gears with her second child. Nicole Kear joins us to talk about her new book, Now I See You, a hilarious memoir about going blind. We mean it.

Biz and Theresa try to anticipate the ramifications of teaching our kids fart jokes and songs about poop. Are we taking all the fun out of it? Are we creating "that kid" who brings dirty words into their friends homes? Probably yes, and yes. Oh, well! Can't be helped. Plus, Theresa pledges to stop lying about how incredibly (im)perfect her life is, and we chat we the very charming Nancy Lyons about working families.

Biz and Theresa fall back on “making jokes” as our defense mechanism while we tackle the topic of Postpartum Depression, the way the media portrays it, and our own experiences with the ups, downs and way-downs of post-baby life. We then speak with Katherine Stone, founder of Postpartum Progress, who helps us understand postpartum depression and other mental illnesses related to pregnancy and childbirth, including postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD, depression during pregnancy, and more.

Swimming! Camp! Pool food! Sunburn! Magazines! This week, Biz and Theresa reminisce about our own childhood summers and make excuses for not giving our kids perfect summertime experiences. Plus, Biz fesses up to co-sleeping with her baby and Theresa is grateful for city parks because she is losing her mother-loving MIND at home with her babies. And, we chat with Amy Vansant about her new book, the best-selling humor anthology Moms Are Nuts, which is entertaining and cathartic for moms and non-moms alike!

Biz and Theresa want to know why, after all the misery of pregnancy and all the lack of sleep of life with a newborn, we would even think of having another baby. Where does that urge come from? Let’s kill it when we find out. Plus, Theresa compliments her partner and Biz realizes there are no voices in her head except her own. We are joined by author and blogger Dawn Meehan, who is a single mom with six kids!

Dawn Meehan's books are:
Because I Said So (And Other Tales from a Less-Than-Perfect Parent)

Biz and Theresa talk about teething and back up the discussion with so many scientific facts that we consider having the show recategorized from comedy to science. Note: "facts" stated by Biz and Theresa may not be true / may make you less smart.

Plus, Theresa advises you to never leave before the raffle, and Biz gets weird about a comment on last week’s show. We're joined by singer-songwriter Ellen Harper to talk about the new album Childhood Home, which is a collaboration with her son Ben Harper.

This week, on a Very Special Father’s Day episode of One Bad Mother, Biz and Theresa revisit the always-festive topic of Mom Guilt, and try to create a safe space to admit we don’t always like being a mom (eek). Plus, baby vomit! Instead of calling a mom this week, in honor of the holiday we welcome our partners, Jesse Thorn and Stefan Lawrence, into the studio and chat with them about all the changes over the last year and hear their genius and fails!
