A podcast for the parenting community - discussing everything about parenting from stuff going on with the kids to things happening with the parents. Touching on the funny, the fantastic and sometimes the serious. To paraphrase Paw Patrol 'No topic's too big, no story too small!'
School's Not Out Forever
We're back after a year off from podcasting to talk about Olivia's first day in big school (who cried, who didn't, did we remember to pick her up on time...) and Thomas' first day in preschool (the child who repeatedly eats dirt is apparently smart enough to be in preschool nearly a year ahead of schedule). Enjoy it while you can...it's probably going to be another fifty five months before we record another one.
Divide and Cuddle
We did a semi-Parent Trap and split the kids up. One with the mother, one with the father - a weekend of peace and bliss and fun and memories. The ladies went off for a night in a hotel while the boys basically reverted to caveman norm and lounged about eating junk food. Plus the reason for Karen and Derek getting divorced is revealed...
Is this the end of the endless
This week we have a chat about prepping for school as best we can with the crazy lack of proper guidelines. Also Derek gets insanely excited about the fact that the kids are going back to creche for a few days each week - something about being able to read emails.
We're back after a Covid (Karen) Hiatus - not that we had it, just that when you aren't doing anything you don't have a lot to talk about. This week we talk about meeting our parents for the first time in months and the prep for school. There is also a shameless plug for another podcast and a short discussion on how Karen avoided doing the editing - despite it being her turn!
In the middle of Covid we said goodbye to Montessori. When we left the creche back on 12 March, over three months ago, we assumed we would all be back and life would be normal again within a few weeks. Fast forward, a more severe lockdown, restrictions we could never imagine having to endure and no sign of any school setting before breaking for summer, we faced into the reality that Olivia's time on Montessori was to be cut dramatically short. This week we talk about the Covid graduation she had and the amazing work by her Montessori to celebrate the occasion in the strangest of circumstances.
Let's talk about racism
George Floyd, he had a name. We need to talk to our children about racism.
