This week on One Bad Mother, Biz and Theresa explore the question, “Are we treating our partners like children?” If you're not sure whether this is something you do, try sharing a kayak with your partner and seeing what comes out of your mouth. Plus, Katy Belle stops by for a visit, Theresa shows Buzz Lightyear who's boss, and Chris Routly of DaddyDoctrines.com joins us to talk about marriage, gendered expectations of parenthood, and the value of supportive community for 'at-home' dads.

Yes, we are a comedy show, but... There is no clever way to say it. This week, Biz and Theresa talk about miscarriages. 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.

Biz and Theresa try to come up with a list of places society allows us to take our kids...it ain't a long one! Are parents doing a bad job of taking kids in public? Or do other people in public just need an attitude adjustment? Plus, Biz has an encounter with a creepy dad and Theresa busts out the bikini! And we get some incredible advice about teaching our kids valuable social skills from etiquette expert Mindy Lockard.

Biz and Theresa talk about baby/toddler sleep regressions and how it makes us feel when months of blissfully decent sleep suddenly turn to dust in our hands for seemingly no good reason. Turns out we're MUCH closer to the point of nervous breakdown than we realized! Plus, Biz weeps for the mom life she imagined she’d have, Theresa's son listens to her with horrible results, and we welcome back sleep expert Jodi Mindell to talk us down from the sleep regression ledge.

Biz and Theresa wonder when, as new parents, do we get back to feeling normal again? And what is normal? Maybe it's the day we stop crying at Target or maybe it's accepting a “new” normal. Also this week, we have another case of baby fever! Plus, we chat with pregnant San Francisco-based film maker Haley Jude, who is a contributor to Elle.com and producer of her own video series, Queer Mama, where she chronicles her journey of lesbian conception and pregnancy.

Biz and Theresa explore the hardest parts of parenting and how "suffering" affects our relationships with our partners. Biz wants her husband to SUFFER LIKE SHE HAS! Theresa has Catholic guilt and wants to spare everyone at her own expense. Turns out we each have our own set of issues and in both cases -- surprise! -- suffering sucks. Luckily our guest, comedienne and actress Kimmy Gatewood, brightens our outlook on things when she joins us to talk about her newborn, her nanny, and her new mom sketch series Milk Factory.

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.
