#118 – Ask a Linguist!



This week we interview Dr. Kaitlyn Tagarelli, who has a Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics from Georgetown University and is currently teaching The Psychology of Learning and The Psychology of Language at SUNY New Paltz. We discuss language development milestones, being bilingual, how much you really need to talk to your kids, and why in-person conversation is so much more valuable than videos.

#117 – Demonic Bowel Movement



Laura is having trouble remembering that everything is a phase (despite our having talked about it on this podcast several times!) and Caitlin still isn’t sleeping (but it’s a phase!). Charlie shits a demon and Caitlin turns David on. Also, the boys are driving us nuts by asking, “Why?” and Caitlin is finally making some headway with potty training.

Head to Episode #104 for Laura and Tim’s take, and #88 and 90 for our completely unprepared guesses on what it would be like.

#114 -Self-care, Mother’s Day, and Sleep



We open the show by talking about how we fit in self-care these days. The answer is wishy-washy! Mother’s Day snuck up on us again (happy belated!) and our kids aren’t sleeping great. Laura gives a breastfeeding update (get ready to drink!) and Caitlin almost Something-About-Marys David.
