For this very special episode of Spawned with Kristen and Liz, we dove deep into our email inbox and answered all your awesome questions on the air. And wow, you guys asked some great questions that we bet lots of parents will be curious about, from how to meet mom friends you actually like, keeping kids from cursing, how to talk to a six-year-old about her “boyfriend,” getting out of the school on time in the morning, improving our musical tastes, and more.

You’ll have to listen to see how we answer!

Plus, be sure to listen to the end to catch two very special little guests for our Cool Picks of the Week.

You can listen via SoundCloud right now (why wait?), or just subscribe to Spawned on iTunes and listen in the Podcast app that comes totally free with your iOS device.
