Parenting Roundabout

  • Weekly Roundup: State Special Olympics, “Bridgerton” S3, “How to Make Custom-Fit Bras and Lingerie,” and Scary Advice

    18 JUN. 2024 · On our latest weekly roundup, Terri went to the New Jersey Special Olympics, and now will never hear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPAbx5kgCJo from Moana the same way again. What we're watching: We're into the second half of Bridgerton season 3 now and watched two episodes: 5, "Tick Tock," and 6, "Romancing Mr. Bridgerton." While thrilled to be engaged to Colin, Penelope is now juggling her secret identity, her fractured friendship with Eloise, and some serious scheming from Cressida. Catherine's library find this week is a follow-up to a previous find, https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/weekly-roundup-mulch-season-ripley-bridgerton-s3-the-sandalmaking-workshop-and-helpful-robots. This time, we're learning ​https://www.amazon.com/How-Make-Custom-Fit-Bras-Lingerie/dp/093253838X (or, rather, discussing why we won't be doing that, thank you).  In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we discussed https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/proud-parent-moments (June 19, 2023), https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/scary-advice (June 17, 2020), and https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/ambiguous-kid-speak (June 19, 2019). ​ Next week, we'll discuss the final installments of Bridgerton, season 3: Episode 7, "Joining of Hands," and episode 8, "Into the Light." Until then (and anytime you're in need), the https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog are available.

  • Weekly Roundup: Wildlife Interactions, “Ripley,” “Bridgerton” S3, “I Can Only Draw Worms,” and Sticking With Zoom

    11 JUN. 2024 · On our latest weekly roundup, Catherine's dogs are getting a little too close to nature, while Terri's pup seems, thankfully, not to follow in the footsteps of her predecessor. What we're watching: In the final episode (for now) of Ripley, "Narcissus," Tom's got a pretty good thing going in Venice, including a new friend played by John Malkovich. On Bridgerton's season 3, episode 4 ("Old Friends"), it's finally time for the carriage scene everyone's been waiting for—although Terri thinks Lord Kilmartin's gesture is far more romantic. Catherine's library find this week is an earthworm-themed two-fer: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/552675/i-can-only-draw-worms-by-will-mabbitt/ by Will Mabbitt and Thttps://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/612631/the-worm-family-has-its-picture-taken-by-jennifer-frank-illustrated-by-david-ezra-stein/ by Jennifer Frank, illustrated by David Ezra Stein. In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we discussed https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/lets-keep-everything-on-zoom (June 11, 2020), https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/we-need-a-parenting-ghostwriter (June 13, 2019), and https://parentingroundabout.libsyn.com/speed-round-talking-or-texting (June 16, 2016). ​ Next week, we'll discuss the next two installments of Bridgerton, season 3: Episode 5, "Tick Tock," and episode 6, "Romancing Mr. Bridgerton." Until then (and anytime you're in need), the https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog are available.

  • Weekly Roundup: Home Improvements, “Ripley,” “Bridgerton” S3, “The African Svelte,” and Situational Adulting Skills

    4 JUN. 2024 · On our latest weekly roundup, home improvements continue (in the Midwest) and are regretfully declined (in New Jersey). What we're watching: In episode 7 of Ripley, "Macabre Entertainment," Tom does some scrambling in Sicily but pulls off another escape in the end. On Bridgerton's season 3, episode 3 ("Forces of Nature"), it's time for the old suitor switcheroo as Lord Debling shows an interest in Penelope and Colin comes to his dang senses and sees what's been in front of him the whole time. Catherine's library find this week is a nonfiction charmer called https://www.harpercollins.com/products/the-african-svelte-daniel-menaker?variant=39935678283810 by Daniel Menaker, with illustrations by Roz Chast. In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we discussed https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/life-skills-lessons-wed-like-to-see (June 7, 2021), https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/emergency-contact-forms (June 5, 2019), and https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/episode-221-privacy-policies (June 4, 2018). Mentioned: The https://www.amazon.com/Ostrichpillow-Original-Microbeads-Patented-Versatile/dp/B00B4S6SLW/. ​ Next week, we'll discuss the final episode (at least for now) of Ripley, called “Narcissus,” and episode 4 of Bridgerton, season 3 ("Old Friends"). Until then (and anytime you're in need), the https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog are available.

  • Weekly Roundup: Mulch Season, “Ripley,” “Bridgerton” S3, “The Sandalmaking Workshop,” and Helpful Robots

    28 MAY. 2024 · On our latest weekly roundup, some of the men in our lives are dealing with excessive amounts of mulch (or bark, or wood chips; whatever the terminology, there is too much of it). What we're watching: In episode 6 of Ripley, "Some Heavy Instrument," the law starts to close in on Tom, in the form of Inspector Ravini, played wonderfully by https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4392084/. Mentioned: The https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0508189/ of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, based on a https://www.sparknotes.com/lit/lamb-to-the-slaughter/summary/. On Bridgerton's season 3, episode 2 ("How Bright the Moon"), Penelope discovers that Colin is a writer (!) and the Queen finds a debutante who interests her. Guess what? It's piano-playing Francesca. Catherine's library find this week is another pick from the department of Crafts We'll Never Do: https://www.hachettebookgroup.com/titles/rachel-corry/the-sandalmaking-workshop/9781635862362/ by Rachel Corry. We're impressed at Corry's industriousness, but we'll stick to buying our sandals (and all of our other shoes) at Zappos. In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we discussed https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/secret-handshakes-and-inside-jokes (May 27, 2021), https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/rooting-for-robots (May 27, 2019), and https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/speed-round-weird-things-that-make-you-happy-as-an-adult (May 29, 2017).  ​ Next week, we'll discuss the next episode of Ripley, called “Macabre Entertainment,” and episode 3 of Bridgerton, season 3 ("Forces of Nature"). Until then (and anytime you're in need), the https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog are available.

  • Weekly Roundup: Water Outage, “Ripley,” “Bridgerton” S3, “Abstract Embroidery,” and Connecting With Kids

    21 MAY. 2024 · On our latest weekly roundup, it's Catherine's turn to deal with an outage, as the water main near her home was shut down (by the same project that caused a https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/weekly-roundup-earthquake-and-eclipse-reservation-dogs-s3-luigi-the-spider-who-wanted-to-be-a-kitten-and-adult-kids-homework a few weeks back).  What we're watching: In episode 5 of Ripley, "Lucio," we caught up with the flash-forward that started the series off: Tom dragging a dead body down the stairs of an apartment building, very noisily and bloodily and under the watchful eye of a https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=065NFeCwqcA.  Then we jumped back 150 years to season 3 of Bridgerton, with episode 1 ("Out of the Shadows"). Here, the colors are bright and beautiful and no one is getting hit in the head with anything heavy—although, of course, there is plenty of subterfuge. Catherine's library find this week is from the department of Crafts We'll Never Do. It's called https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/729905/abstract-embroidery-by-emily-botelho/ by Emily Botelho. We also took a detour into a non-library find from the same department of not-gonna-happen: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/742496/tooth-gem-style-by-edited-by-ali-gitlow-and-alexa-johnson/. In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we discussed https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/not-that-kind-of-family (May 24, 2021), https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/connecting-with-kids (May 20, 2019), and https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/speed-round-stuff-we-need-to-get-rid-of (May 23, 2017).  ​ Next week, we'll discuss the next episode of Ripley, called “Some Heavy Instrument,” and episode 2 of Bridgerton, season 3 ("How Bright the Moon").

  • Weekly Roundup: Power Outage, “Ripley,” “Goodnight, Girls,” and Proud Mom Moments

    14 MAY. 2024 · On our latest weekly roundup, Terri reports on a power outage that almost derailed her viewing of Ripley, while Catherine's daughter had a close call with a tornado. Mentioned: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14914430/ (the Jerry Seinfeld Pop-Tart movie) and the upcoming https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12584954/, an "update" of the 1996 movie Twister. What we're watching: Episode 3 of Ripley is called "Sommerso," which means "submerged" in Italian, so maybe you can guess what happens in that one? It taught us that blood spatters look extra-dramatic in black and white, for one thing. Episode 4, "La Dolce Vita," showed us Tom's new situation in Rome. It's not really a sweet life, but it is a double one--for now. Mentioned: TV critics https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-reviews/ripley-review-andrew-scott-dakota-fanning-netflix-patricia-highsmith-1235865914/, https://www.vulture.com/article/ripley-netflix-series-review-andrew-scott.html, and https://www.indiewire.com/criticism/shows/ripley-review-netflix-series-andrew-scott-1234969838/ on the show, and particularly the ages of the actors and their characters. Catherine's library find this week is ostensibly a children's book, but we think it's aimed squarely at Gen-Xers: It's a board book called https://www.hachettebookgroup.com/titles/samantha-brooke/the-golden-girls-goodnight-girls/9780316119634/, starring cartoon versions of TV's Golden Girls. Mentioned: A new version of Matlock, coming soon and starring Kathy Bates. In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we discussed https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/happy-day-after-mothers-day (May 15, 2023), https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/proud-mom-moments (May 17, 2021), and https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/whats-bugging-you (May 19, 2021). The children's book about a mouse that Terri was trying to recall is https://www.katedicamillo.com/novels/tale_of_despereaux/ by Kate DiCamillo. ​ Next week, we'll discuss the next episode of Ripley, called “Lucia,” and the first episode of Bridgerton, season 3! It's called "Out of the Shadows" and we're confident it'll be quite a contrast with Ripley. Until then (and anytime you're in need), the https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog are available.

  • Weekly Roundup: Fun Fundraisers, “Ripley,” “Dogland,” and Kids in Public Places

    7 MAY. 2024 · On our latest weekly roundup, a delicious fundraiser benefitting the library where Catherine works prompted us to talk about clever ways to solicit donations (and how involved parents get in the process). What we're watching: We started Netflix's Ripley, a series based on the 1999 movie https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0134119/, with episodes 1 ("A Hard Man to Find") and 2 ("Seven Mercies"). In the series, the characters are aged up and the color is drained out for a you-can't-miss-it moodiness. We didn't love it (listen in to hear why) but we'll keep going. Catherine's library find this week is from the quirky nonfiction category: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Dogland/Tommy-Tomlinson/9781982149321 by Tommy Tomlinson. It's a perfect audiobook for Terri, except she'll miss out on pictures of doggies. In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we discussed https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/kids-in-public-places (May 10, 2023), https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/gestures-of-generosity (May 9, 2022), and https://parentingroundabout.libsyn.com/speed-round-if-money-was-no-object (May 12, 2016). Mentioned: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0218839/; "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pLNTewIfrg"  by Walker Hayes. ​ Next week, we'll watch the next two episodes of Ripley, “Sommerso” and “La Dolce Vita.” Until then (and anytime you're in need), the https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog are available.

  • Weekly Roundup: "The Tortured Poets Department," "Reservation Dogs" S3, "Monster’s New Undies," and Social Media Habits

    30 ABR. 2024 · On our latest weekly roundup, our resident Swiftie gives her review of The Tortured Poets Department. Mentioned: The video for the song "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3zqJs7JUCQ," with Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles (of Dead Poets Society ... get it?).  What we're watching: We came to the end of Reservation Dogs and we're so sad about it. But the final pair of episodes ("Elora's Dad" and "Dig") were a beautiful celebration of family and community and the perfect way to go out. Catherine's library find this week is https://www.samanthaberger.com/books_monsters_new_undies.html. Check out a https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofjSmncbJaU so you can appreciate the rhymes from Samantha Berger along with the illustrations by Tad Carpenter. Plus, a follow-up to previous library find Butt or Face: There's a sequel, https://www.karilavelle.com/buttorfacehttps://www.karilavelle.com/buttorface! In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we discussed https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/pre-pandemic-peeves (April 29, 2020), https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/trade-in-values (April 29, 2019, and the https://parentingroundabout.libsyn.com/speed-round-the-hardest-thing-for-you-to-give-up-forever (May 2, 2016). Mentioned: Seinfeld https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLnuBQDcbD4; https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4103724/. ​ Next week, we'll start watching the new Netflix series https://www.netflix.com/title/81678765.

  • Weekly Roundup: Thesis Defense, “Reservation Dogs” S3, “Obit” Documentary, and Prom Season

    23 ABR. 2024 · On our latest weekly roundup, Catherine's daughter defended her thesis project, and Catherine actually got to watch it from another time zone. What we're watching: Reservation Dogs creeps closer to the finish line with another pair of lovely episodes, "Wahoo!" and "Send It." We enjoy all the interactions among various generations and among both the living and the spirit worlds. Catherine's library find this week is an older documentary entitled https://www.obitdoc.com/, which highlights the work of obituary writers at the New York Times. Mentioned: The Times' https://www.nytimes.com/spotlight/overlooked and another NYT-related documentary, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1621444/. In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we discussed https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/dental-dilemmas (April 24, 2019), the prom (https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/prom-palooza and https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/the-last-dance), https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/tensions-and-transitions with adult kids (April 26, 2023), and https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/generation-gaps (April 27, 2023). Mentioned: Taylor Swift's new album, "https://store.taylorswift.com/products/the-tortured-poets-department-standard-digital-album." ​ Next week, we'll return to Reservation Dogs for the final two episodes of season 3, E9 ("Elora's Dad") and E10 ("Dig"). Until then (and anytime you're in need), the https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog are available.

  • Weekly Roundup: Earthquake and Eclipse, “Reservation Dogs” S3, “Luigi, the Spider Who Wanted to Be a Kitten,” and Adult Kids’ Homework

    16 ABR. 2024 · On our latest weekly roundup, we belatedly share our experiences with recent natural phenomena. Don't worry, Terri survived the Great New Jersey Earthquake. Mentioned: Catherine's report on the https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/episode-183-kids-these-days. What we're watching: Thanks to our two-by-two watch schedule, we got a perfect pair of Reservation Dogs episodes this week. "House Made of Bongs" flashed back to 1976, and a fateful outing for Maximus, Bucky, Brownie, Irene, Mabel, and Fixico. Then "Frankfurter Sandwich" reassembled several members of that generation to spend time with Cheese out in the woods. Catherine's library find this week is the recently published https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/746920/luigi-the-spider-who-wanted-to-be-a-kitten-by-michelle-knudsen-illustrated-by-kevin-hawkes/ by Michelle Knudsen, illustrated by Kevin Hawkes. Arachnophobes should look away, but everyone else will be charmed by this adorable critter.
