One Bad Mother Episode 80: Mom Ruts, plus guest Jill Barber

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!)

Biz and Theresa discover the answer to the question, “Who is the first birthday for anyway?” It's us! So, where's our bounce house? Biz’s younger self is disgusted with her older self’s view on Halloween candy, Theresa may have a screw loose when it comes to finding appropriate toys for her children to play with, and we ask you to declare if you are Team Pouch or Team Dirty Banana. Plus, we talk making mom friends (and dad friends!) with one of the creators of the new website MomMeetMom.

On a very special Halloween episode of One Bad Mother, we talk zombie-apocalypse-readiness! (...A.K.A. emergency preparedness!) Clearly, we are prepared to have a three-day-supply of water and eat people. Theresa solves bedwetting forever and Biz spins a genius moment out of anything that will spin. Plus, we summon the ghost of John Hodgman to judge us as moms, only to discover that the real monster is the creator of baby food puree pouches!

Biz and Theresa wonder what you're supposed to do when you can’t take the time for yourself that everyone wants you to take unless you have the baby with you. Is it possible to have restorative time for ourselves...while we're with our babies? Plus, kissing in kindergarten, everyone is being a dick to mom, and we talk with Lisa Mourgess about parenting techniques, homeschooling, Down syndrome, and what it's like to have seven kids.

Shaun Wiley

Biz and Theresa wonder how we find time to discuss family business with our partners, or -- shock of all shocks -- simply talk and connect with our partners?! How is it possible two people can live in the same house and not find time to talk? Oh, that’s right. We have kids. Plus, Biz gets comfortable with being a “plain old mom” and Theresa takes a chance and talks with the parents of Simon's playground "bully." And, we talk about why so few men take paternity leave in America with our guest Shaun Wiley, Professor of Social Psychology at The College of New Jersey.
