You've heard of the "'tween" years, but Biz and Theresa think there's another awkward in-between time that comes earlier and doesn't get as much attention. Those years after infancy but before total kid autonomy...Why didn’t anyone tell us they would be a little repetitive and boring…I mean magical in their own unique way? Plus Biz starts camp early, Theresa stops getting out of her chair and we talk to Seattle based writer Ijeoma Oluo about embracing being wrong.
