On this week’s episode, Rebecca, Carvell, and Gabe answer questions from listeners about whether to go back to work after having a child, getting your kids back on track after a vacation, and what to tell your child when you’ve fired her beloved nanny. Plus: parenting triumphs and fails, recommendations, and more. And on Slate Plus this week, Slate editor-in-chief and Culture Gabfest host Julia Turner discusses a bedtime triumph she fears might be turning into a fail.
Also discussed: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Vol. 2.
Outro song: Fifth Harmony, “Bo$$”
