#143 – We Are Thankful, We Swear



We recap Thanksgiving, including how we can’t wait for the kids to be more autonomous and just play while we drink wine and how Caitlin’s mom’s house is a child death trap. Then we lament that our kids are going to get more toys this holiday season. Plus, we have audio issues, so Laura inserts our first DJ sound effect. Enjoy!

#142 – Love Languages



Laura and Caitlin talk more about our spouses than our kids this week! Listen for what our love languages are and what Henry does that bothers Caitlin.  We both idly wonder if our children are tiny psychopaths, perhaps a common worry? Don’t tell us.

The honeymoon is over: we didn’t really miss our kids during our girls’ weekend. Laura has JOMO (Joy of Missing Out) and Caitlin is dealing with some bad behavior from David. A call for listener feedback: How have you dealt with a childcare provider who won’t firmly discipline your kids? Or just won’t adopt your preferred discipline method.
