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 Jennifer Wider, who explains WTF is going on with our libidos and helps us put things into perspective.

Biz and Theresa talk about the big lie all soon-to-be parents tell themselves: ”I will never play kids' music to my kids, only real music.” It's funny how fast we broke down. Plus, excellent parenting advice on how to handle “hitting” games. And, Lisa Loeb joins us to talk about her children’s albums and her charity, Camp Lisa!
