Parenting With Playdate Planet – The Funny Truth About Parenting

On this week’s show, two very funny moms and I take a look at parenting behind the scenes: what most of us are really thinking and feeling as we spend our days wiping noses and checking for ear wax.

Karen Bergreen is a stand-up comic who you may have seen on Comedy Central or at one of the comedy clubs in New York City. As a married mom of two boys and a couple of hermit crabs, she turned to writing as a means of cutting back on travel time. She’s now published two entertaining comic mysteries: Following Polly and her latest, Perfect is Overrated, about a former assistant DA who finally snaps out of her postpartum depression when mothers of her daughter’s pre-school classmates start getting knocked off.

Jenna McCarthy is an internationally published writer whose work has appeared in more than fifty magazines, on dozens of websites, and in several anthologies. She’s very funny, she’s given a TED talk, and on top of that, she’s the author of several books that highlight her honest and humorous take on life, including The Parent Trip: From High Heels and Parties to Highchairs and Potties and her most recent, If It Was Easy They’d Call the Whole Damn Thing a Honeymoon: Living With and Loving the TV-Addicted, Sex-Obsessed, Not-So-Handy Man You Married.

If these ladies sound like fun, they are! So make sure to tune in to hear their hilarious take on being a mom, and then check out their websites to read more. As usual, I will be blogging about this topic and sharing my humorous parenting moments at Playdate Planet’s Blog.

Hope to see you there!
