How many times have you found yourself standing in the middle of a store with a screaming toddler? Sitting in a school pickup line with a puking baby? ...or feeling like the day can’t possibly get any longer? Join comedians/moms Betsy Stover and Amanda Allan each week as they chat with a different guest (actors, musicians, writers, etc...) about the moments in parenting that broke them and possibly drove them to drink. It’s an advice free zone where the hosts and guests tell heartbreakingly honest and often hilarious stories of child rearing chaos. This show will leave you cringing through laughter, knowing that things could always get worse, and hopefully feeling less alone in the messy journey of parenthood.
