Only Mothers Are Allowed To Be Tired

A listener wants to know why her best friend is now suddenly acting superior after having a baby. It's 'mother martyr' syndrome and it's everywhere. Remember Hygge? That's over. The new hot lifestyle trend is Lagom. Would you let your partner dine alone with a member of the opposite sex? Mike Pence, the Vice President of the United States, has outlined his rules for marriage, and they are fascinating. A white woman was turned away from a multicultural playgroup and it’s exactly the kind of bad press that mums groups DON’T NEED. And saying 'No' is one of the hardest things to do: we have a trick that means you can do it without feeling like a jerk. Plus, S-Town, the book you should add to your pile, and Jessie has just discovered Pinterest....17 years after it started.
