Spawned Episode 9: You Are Not a Crappy Parent

This week on SPAWNED, we talk about sending our oldest daughters off to sleepaway camp, the good, the bad, and the hilarious. And wow, we’ve gotten so many amazing emails from our listeners thanking us for giving you new-ish parents hope that it does get better — so we thought we’d share our own newborn stories and advice for surviving these years. Hope our walk down postpartum, leaky boobed, sleep-deprived memory lane can help you! And as always, we close the show with our cool picks of the week, which includes a funny discussion about adult popsicles. Hmmmmm. Take a listen right now to SPAWNED...

Spawned Episode 8: “You let us watch death, mom!”

Don’t be afraid of the title of our most recent episode of SPAWNED. To be fair, Kristen did let her kids watch death, or as you might know it, The Princess Bride. It actually led to a very lively discussion about kids and media. How do you know what to let your kids watch and when? And why are we so much more freaked out about some things than our parents were? Plus, we share a few of our online dating stories and quiz each other on our Dating Instant No’s which we actually disagreed on! We’d love for you to take the quiz...

Spawned Episode 7: Kale, no.

On our newest episode of SPAWNED with Kristen and Liz, we’re chatting about Liz’s some-number high school reunion (her stories are hilarious) and we discuss a few surprising benefits of turning 40. Then, we tackle the tough topic of picky eaters, sharing ten of the extremely confusing and sometimes contradictory rules from experts about dealing with it — along with some of our own techniques which may or may not be working all that well. Ah, parenting!   Take a listen here: Or go right to Spawned on iTunes or listen via the Podcast app that comes totally free with your iOS device.   Links from SPAWNED Episode 7...

SPAWNED Episode 7 (because we skipped 6): PANTIES. AGAIN.

We know, we know, we’re talking about panties again on our latest SPAWNED with Kristen and Liz podcast episode. But this time, it’s literal grown-up panties at the request of a listener, not metaphorical ones like we did a couple of weeks ago. We chat about whether kids seem to be growing up too soon these days, plus as always, our cool picks of the week. Take a listen here: Or go right to Spawned on iTunes or listen in the Podcast app that comes totally free with your iOS device.

SPAWNED Episode 5: Girls Toys vs. Boys Toys.

It’s that time of the week! Our newest episode of SPAWNED with Kristen + Liz is live, and it’s a fun one. Well, we think they all, are but we had a really good time with this one in particular. Join us as we talk (and yes, rant a little) about summer birthdays and why it’s okay to be a total Type B mom in the birthday planning department. Then we take on the whole girls toys vs. boys toys premise, which bugs the heck out of us, as our regular readers know by now. Fortunately we can laugh about it. A lot. We even came...

SPAWNED Episode 4: Grownup Panties

We’ve got our newest episode of SPAWNED with Kristen + Liz up today! And first we want to thank you for all the support. It’s been so nice seeing your emails, your tweets, your comments, and your kind reviews. Some not even from our own parents. This week, we’re talking about email etiquette and some of our own pet peeves. Note: Please don’t send us angry emails, Comic Sans fans. Or can you at least send them in Helvetica? We’re also answering our first listener question from dad James, who’s having some serious playdate problems. We’ve been there, so we discuss...

Spawned Episode 3: Boobage

It only took us three episodes to talk about boobs, which led to our first explicit rating for it. Aw, new milestone! In this episode of Spawned with Kristen + Liz, we chat about bathing suit shopping (ugh) and the crazy things people say to Kristen when she’s out with her four kids (and well, to all parents, no matter how many kids they have). Liz is still kind of floored. Bonus: Liz schools Kristen on the correct use of the word schlep. You’ll hear why.   And we just wanted to add that we’ve been so thrilled and touched by your response to our SPAWNED...

Just a couple of months ago we were talking about how much we love being guests on various talk shows, radio shows, and yes, podcasts, that maybe we should have our own. How fun would that be? We love listening to our favorite podcasts while we’re driving, while we’re working out, while we’re trying to avoid working out… you...
