In lieu of a brand-new episode today, please enjoy this October, 2017, flashback. We'll be back with a new Round 2 tomorrow and new speed rounds for the rest of the week.
01:03 Post-Renovation Debrief: Terri's bathroom reno is complete, but it will never be perfect. Just like our reflections in every mirror we encounter.
05:44 We Could Care, But We Choose Not To: We had a bossy parenting article to discuss, but decide to give ourselves a break on that, along with lots of other things parents are probably supposed to be worrying about.
23:09 Friday Speed Round: Missed Milestones: We have also opted not to worry about milestones like riding the school bus, taking photos with Santa, and going camping.
32:30 Roundabout Roundup: Catherine's fed up with kids' water bottles, Terri is talking Dancing with the Stars on Facebook and Annie Barrett's blog, and Nicole is getting the low-down from Urban Dictionary.
42:21 Shameless Self-Promotion: Learn to Skate and World Girls' Ice Hockey Weekend; 8 Tips for Introducing a Student with Disabilities to a General Education Classroom; and this podcast's graphics on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook (a combined project of Catherine, who listens for the quotes, and Terri, who designs and shares 'em).
Thanks as always to Jon Morin for our fun in-and-out music. If you're reading this somewhere without hyperlinks, come to http://parentingroundabout.com for the full recap experience.
