Ep. 36: Potty Time

Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Adira Amram

Biz and Theresa talk about the pressure to potty train and, as usual, we are super, super helpful. (Does "she no longer pees on me or the good rug" count as training? We think...yes?) We also talk to comedienne and singer-songwriter Adira Amram who not only sings our Mom Song but is a new mom herself!

Ep. 35: Birth Control

Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Julie of I Like Beer & Babies

Biz and Theresa talk about birth control and prove, once again, we are IN NO WAY the authorities on anything. But at least we don't tell you breastfeeding is a form of birth control! Theresa has last-minute regrets about not spending more money to make her natural birth more natural and Biz gets her haunted cradle set up. Plus, we talk with Julie of the I Like Beer And Babies blog and we admit we like her, beer, and babies.

Hey, One Bad Mother-lovers! As you may have heard, Theresa's baby has arrived -- hooray! And Biz's baby's arrival is now IMMINENT. So, we're on a reduced episode release schedule for a couple of months. In November and December, you can expect new episodes of One Bad Mother just about every other week.

Come January, we'll be back full-force with new episodes every week, including discussions of how the births went, and undoubtedly some epic newborn-related parenting FAILS.

Stay tuned!

Plus, Biz predicts that by the time this show airs Theresa will have a baby!

Ep. 33: Baby Movies

| 0 comments
Show: 
One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa review and discuss two very different movies about childbirth. We aren't sure which was more painful to watch...the fiction or the nonfiction movie. We also remember that we forgot to say something nice about siblings on our sibling show, and Theresa gets annoyed.
