#51 – Naps and Slaps


Laura opens the show describing what every young toddler mom dreads – a skipped nap. Both Caitlin and Laura talk about another podcaster who recently became a mom and reminisce about their own birth stories and the amnesia about labor and early motherhood that sets in after you’re through the hardest first months.  #idontgotthis revolves around our toddlers being sneaky in different ways. Our #igotthis moments find us patting ourselves on our backs for thinking ahead.

#49 – Shade is a Universal Language

**If you’re podcast player downloaded a 15 minute version of this episode, delete and redownload. We mention in the description that the show is slightly shorter than normal, but we didn’t mean THAT short!

Caitlin gives a not-so-great IVF update, involving a moderate amount of uncertainty. Laura recounts a day that went from bad to worse. We talk about the precedents we set when we cave to tantrums.  Today’s episode is slightly shorter than usual, a result of a those curious toddler fingers! Keep Reading

#48 – Toddlers Though

We open the show talking about recent 18 month pediatrician appointments, and the general feedback about talking, weight and development. Our #idontgotthis moments are unsurprisingly about the challenges of having toddlers and their generally wild behavior. Laura’s #igotthis revolves around creatively tiring out a little one.

#47 – IVF Jokes Are Cool, Right?

Caitlin talks about her recent visit to the IVF clinic and wonders whether she made a few too many inappropriate jokes, and Laura’s #idontgotthis may want you to run to the bathroom immediately to wash your hands. We both reminisce about the times we’ve compared and despaired, and how unhelpful comparing children at this age is.

#46 – BUBBLES

Laura covers her terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad New Year’s, but we promise it’s a funny (at least it is now) story to everyone except for maybe Tim. Caitlin updates on the IVF process and her feelings about that thus far. We both go through our #igotthis and #idontgotthis moments, which mostly involve overcoming negative emotions. Charlie chimes in with his opinion on, you guessed it, b-u-b-b-l-e-s.
