Put on your sequined vest and don’t let the band kids snub you— you’re show choir royalty with this week’s guest, Sydnee McElroy ("Sawbones")! It’s all about singing, the raggle-taggle delights of high school theatre, and the long road to figuring out that it doesn’t take dress slacks and a pair of heels to prove you’re a grown-up.

Biz and Theresa get stuck holding the bag…and the water bottles, and the half eaten sandwich, and the “art” and the toddler. Where in all those parenting books did it warn us that there would be so much carrying? Perhaps it's less about the stuff and more about feeling like a haggard and broken coat rack left outside? Yeah, probably. Plus, Biz does not know, Theresa gets a clue, and we are beyond psyched to have Judy Greer (Married, Archer, Let's Go Luna!, Ask the StoryBots, and soooo many more) on the show this week, talking about being a step-mom and so much more. This is Week One of the #MaxFunDrive and you can join or upgrade your membership and get awesome thank-you gifts at maximumfun.org/donate -- AND WE THANK YOU.

One Bad Mother, Episode 296: Scheduling Nightmares! Plus, Parenting Norms Throughout History with Jennifer Traig

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Jennifer Traig

Biz and Theresa discuss family scheduling. Once all of the basics are set, like school/daycare drop offs and pick ups, work, doctor appointments and groceries, adding extra activities like classes and play dates is enough to make us want to go out for milk and never come home. Whether our kids thrive on doing many activities or we subscribe to “not over-scheduling kids,” a lot of brain space is taken up just by getting everyone where they need to be. Don’t forget to schedule time to do the scheduling! Plus, Biz is quarantined, Theresa is left to pick up all the pieces and we talk to Jennifer Traig about the absurdity of parenting norms, and her book Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting.

Jennifer Traig’s book, Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting is out now.
