#179 – It’s Decorative Gourd Season



Laura recaps her visit to the Zoo’s dinosaur exhibit and how fun but also tiring that is. We continue the talk of doing things our kids may find fun but we find are also tiring when Caitlin talks a little bit about her visit to the farm for apple picking. She mostly, however, just works to keep Joe off of her furniture during the episode.  Enjoy hearing us chasing him around!

#176 – We’re Back..AGAIN!



Things are a bit noisy on this old school, in-person, toddlers in the background version of Hey Mama! Charlie is having a rocky transition back to preschool. But the good news? We ran a 5k! Although we’re quick to point out that our kids even manage to ruin that.

#174 – The Highs and the Lows



Caitlin talks about how David is being angelic at the moment, and Laura tells us a story of Tommy giving her a morning sleep gift. Speaking of sleep, Caitlin has a mini-meltdown about Joe’s sleep, but has gotten out of it. We are super proud of our boys for well-behaved self-directed play.

#173 – Fights and Bikes



Caitlin recaps David’s birthday and an epic fight that ensued with planning the party. Tommy seems much more fearful than Charlie and maybe it’s affecting his sleep? But also he and Joe are agro.

#172 – Computer Glitches



Laura talks about her recent summer family trip, and why it seems like there’s less relaxation time this year with a young toddler  vs. last year when she had an infant. Caitlin feels like a hot mess mom and her computer has decided to have a crappy day – which is ALSO why she is only in half the episode! Her audio cut out so enjoy the second half of the episode with Laura riding solo.

#171 – What?



David can’t seem to understand Caitlin, and it’s really annoying. Laura is looking forward to a trip with her family, and Caitlin recaps a recent family party that was kind of exhausting with David. Plus Caitlin is trying Whole30 again, and Laura fails at gifts (again).

#170 – Preschool & Playgrounds



We open the show with final thoughts as preschool comes to a close. Caitlin talks about her own issues with playground dynamics and what is developmentally appropriate and what is rude.  Our #idontgotthis moments revolve around messes…some gross, some just annoying.
