Theresa “moms up” getting the newborn out of her bed, Biz gets older, and we talk about cleaning house. Our guest this week is economist Emily Oster, author of Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Is Wrong—and What You Really Need to Know.

Episode 40: Keepin' It Clean

Please share and discuss!

I feel like the gist of this episode is that I totally should not have a second baby.

Yup- we had been thinking about a second, and its starting to sound like a really bad idea. I'm barely holding it together with one!

Really? My second baby has me so tired I have no recollection of what we said.

No, more babies! Babies are cute! Must have more babies! I spent the most recent episodes wanting just one more...

The first 6 months are hard, but then it gets better. My older 2 kids are 25 months apart, and they were best buds as little kids. My 3rd is 3 years younger than the second. Going from 1 to 2 was much harder than 2 to 3.

Also, it helps if your partner doesn't suck. That was one of my biggest problems.
