In preparation for Beth leaving town for a wedding, Peter and Beth record a night early, much later than usual and after an incredibly bumpy Uber ride. Does Peter make it through the recording? It’s debatable. Also, Bryn and Maeven chime in… mostly about farts.
This week Beth and Peter prepare for Bryn’s 5th birthday by rehashing the brown cow cake argument, admitting that they have no plan and then asking the listeners to plan the party for them. Then they prove once again why the podcast deserves reviews titled “A very sexy podcast for parents.”
A new week brings new neighbors, a new bed, and a new appreciation for a lazy day. Beth shares an article about the history of mothers’ lack of alone time, Peter catches up on some old lister mail and Bryn writes a book about the Sun… farting.
After a remarkably stress-free family vacation, Peter’s new medication makes him so crazy that Beth and Peter have to scrap an entire episode, then fight all night, and re-record a day late. It sounds terrible and it was, but things end up better in the end.
For four days, Peter spends the weekend in the Berkshires, the kids with Nana and Granddad and Beth home alone. The result? Everyone has the time of their lives. Peter and Beth then finally spill the beans on that big reveal that they’ve been teasing for weeks.
