#200 – The Naivete Before the Coronavirus Storm

*DISCLAIMER: We recorded this podcast on March 11, which was just before it became abundantly clear to us that COVID-19 was not just on our doorstep, it was in our figurative yard, and in our figurative garage. Therefore you will hear us (and in particular, Caitlin) continue to question the contagion, the responses, the leading edge worriers, and overall what we should have been doing. Rest assured listeners, we have since done a 180 degree shift and are aggressively social distancing. Enjoy our naivete and blissful unawareness about what was about to hit us. Know that we have changed, that it’s ok to change your mind and do better. Please: STAY HOME.  

Caitlin talks about a recent hard night she had with both boys, and how she’s begun snoring. Laura has been enjoying being out in the nice weather (blergh) and recaps Siblings Without Rivalry and How to Talk so Kids Will Listen and Listen so Kids Will Talk.

#199 – Are you in line?

Laura’s washing machine is broken and we talk about corona virus, so you  might think for a moment that you’re listening to For Crying Out Loud. We also get into some hot regionalisms talk, so maybe it’s more like ARIYNBF? In any case, we then give pee-related don’t got thises and Caitlin loves to sing.

We talked about Line v. queue YouTube videoIn this video, he consistently uses “in” for both queue and line.

We start off the episode chatting about our summer plans, as you do in February, and then look forward even further to kindergarten, ever looming over our year. Caitlin talks more about getting Joe evaluated for early intervention. We then spend much of the episode talking, way belatedly, about the Superbowl Halftime Show. Laura reads an amazing fan email, thank you friend!

#194 – Sportscasting

We open the show continuing to talk about refereeing sibling disputes and disputes among young children in general. We cover the latest in parenting advice: sportscasting (also referred to mediation or narrating). Caitlin doesn’t like parenting books and Laura comes up with a good hack on how to incorporate this type of book into her routine. We talk a bit about Caitlin’s favorite ASMR videos, which eat into her reading. Laura’s #idontgotthis revolves around vegetables and Caitlin’s is about…poop.

#193 – Refereeing

A very noisy episode in which Charlie and Tommy can’t seem to play by themselves or with each other, Laura regales us with a story about her broken microwave and Caitlin doesn’t got stuff in the bedroom. We also both had play dates go not-so-well recently.

#192 – Frazzled Hot Mess Mom

We’re dealing with some Christmas aftermath, with Laura attempting to take down the decorations and Caitlin braving the mall for a return. We both bemoan what it’s like to watch an Apple Store employee wander around the store, seemingly aimlessly, while you wait for help with a toddler. We lament the 2 year old year.
