...and your name is Tom and you live at 123 Tom's Address Chicago, Illinois... No just kidding! But am I? Let's talk playing with your kids, especially the most boring, tedious, monotonous stuff. But before that, Thomas has some kid news. Oh also, the bonus for this one is very meaty and you really shouldn't miss it. Become a patron!

This one ended up being a pretty distinct two-parter! First up, some Thomas news and discussion of processing when a baby is literally driving you insane. Also, some sleep training talk and various other things. THEN, we get to the topic of reading your partner's phone. Thomas and Eli's opinions are probably boring and not insane, but what about Tom? He could go either way on this one and Thomas and Eli have a lot riding on it. Tune in and find out!

This one started off wanting to continue the "fight" discussion, around the topic of defending your kids or family members no matter if they are right or wrong. From there we branched out into siblings and sibling rivalry, and then somehow got to kids and swearing? And then Eli tells a magic show horror story. YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS the bonus extra story. Another Tom instant classic.   For extended episodes, bonus content, and most importantly, for an AD FREE SHOW, make sure to pledge on Patreon!

Tom gives us some pointers on how to win your typical carwash fight club. No just kidding. This one is about having fights/arguments/disagreements with your partner. Is it healthy?

Tom Curry, Thomas Smith, and Eli Bosnick compliment each other far better than I even expected. The introspection these loveable chuckleheads inspire will undoubtedly help me to refine my tactics on the constantly evolving adventure of parenting. Thanks for everything you guys do! My serious inquiry is only how the hell I'm going to complete my puzzle in a thunderstorm while visiting the most glorious of glory holes?
