Join parenting writers Terri Mauro, Catherine Holecko, and Nicole Eredics for a daily look at the things parents are talking about, complaining about, and obsessing about right now.
Morning People vs. Middle-of-the-Night People
Some are morning people, some are night owls, and some do their best work in the middle of the night. We think it's too bad that the early birds run the world. Mentioned: The Start School Later campaign [https://www.startschoollater.net/].
What We’re Watching: ZEP “Zoey’s Extraordinary Distraction” and Veronica Mars “My Big Fat Greek Rush Week”
On our entertainment-themed Round 2 this week, both our current watches have us worried about how the season will go. Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist seems to be floating away without the weight of Zoey's father's terminal illness. If it's going to be fun and fluffy, it needs to be shorter--and more fun and fluffy. Next: "Zoey's Extraordinary Dreams."
On Veronica Mars, if the season-long mystery is "Who is the Hearst College rapist?", we're not sure we can stick around. We'd rather go back to the charismatically evil Aaron Echolls, who was so central to the two previous seasons. Next: "Wichita Linebacker."
New Milestones for Older Kids
As our kids get older, we have to look at milestones in new ways. What are we looking forward to with our adult and nearly adult children? Mentioned: Last week's family shout-outs [https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/family-shout-outs]; a milestones discussion from 2016 [https://www.spreaker.com/episode/18923162].
Speed-Round Sunday: Phone Case Preferences
Our case choices at the moment seem to be style over substance, but a big fat protective case can't fit in your pocket.
Second-Listen Saturday: What a Shame
We go beyond dogshaming.com (Hey, that's Nicole's dog, Missy!) to put others on notice for their shameful behavior.
Roundabout Roundup: Jackbox Games, NordicTrack Studio Cycle, and The Bible in a Year Podcast
On this week’s Roundabout Roundup: Catherine discovered the new-to-her suite of Jackbox Games [https://www.jackboxgames.com/]. Nicole invested in a Nordic-Track exercise bike [https://www.nordictrack.com/exercise-bikes/s22i-studio-bike], which she is using to cycle down memory lane. And Terri is virtuously listening to The Bible in a Year, in podcast form [https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-bible-in-a-year-with-fr-mike-schmitz/id1539568321].

Best Advice with Friends!!
Thanks to these four ladies, my commute is fun. I love how they share their thoughts about parenting and aren't afraid to get into the reality of life. It's like having coffee with a group of great friends! They keep it relavant, fun, and real. This is the only podcast I listen to daily.
I like listening in on their conversations.
