September 19, 2022
Shanna receives a mystery package and must use her detective skills to determine where it came from and why, and Laura has to manage her 18-month-old’s intense separation anxiety. Also, in the special segment “Internet Insanity,” they share the wackiest parenting-related things they’ve come across online recently, including a bizarre teething remedy, eerie fetal images and more! Finally, they share their BFPs and BFNs for the week. Shanna’s kids are 3.5 and 6 years old, and Laura’s kids are 3.5 years old and 18 months old.
