Ep. 127: Big Feelings
December 7, 2020
In this week’s special segment “OMG I’m Freaking Out,” Laura and Shanna have big feelings about inadequate toddler proofing and unusual children’s toys. Also, Shanna talks about being thrust into potty training by her take-charge toddler, who has decided it is go-time, and Laura discusses her toddler’s response to stressful times, which reveals itself in big feelings and big meltdowns. Finally, they reveal their BFPs and BFNs for the week. Shanna’s toddler is 22 months and 1 week old, and Laura’s toddler is 21 months and 1 week old. Laura is 26 weeks pregnant.
