Shanna discusses spontaneously transitioning her 19-month-old to a toddler bed and bemoans her daughter’s new 5:00 a.m. wake ups. Also, in the special segment “Internet Insanity,” the moms report on hilarious and questionable TikToks as well as some very uncool Facebook algorithmic behavior. Finally, they reveal their BFPs and BFNs for the week. Shanna’s toddler is 19 months old, and Laura’s toddler is 18 months old. Laura is 11 weeks pregnant.
