Fiction writer Patti Callahan Henry tells a story cataloguing the ways she's screwed up as a mom, and how these moments become stitched, along with others, into the tapestry of the experience of parenthood, or what she calls "the daily-ness that changes everything." (Her latest novel, The Bookshop at Water's End, is out this July. Rock it!)
Katy and Alison talk about their own screw-ups, what being the best parent we can be actually means in that space of "the daily-ness," and that weird moment of catching a glimpse of at your growing kid and thinking, "Wait. Who are you, again?"
