Papa Time

One papa, five children, and the talks they have together.

Today's episode is another special edition - where the kids get to visit with their cousins from out of state!

I'm afraid we have another episode with bad sound quality, but this time for a different reason. We weren't able to record in our usual corner since there were eight kids to fit around the mic. So there's a lot of wiggling and knocking on the table, and a lot of Violet noise. Hopefully, we'll have better sound quality in our next episode, which will air on July 20th, due to family vacay!

This week Gillian is back to talk to Papa about a variety of subjects, including chess vs checkers, whether or not watching TV can kill you, the rescue of an unusually large woman from a skyrise, a new favorite TV program in the house, and what to do with 100 mansions.  The book mentioned by Gilli: Digger Dog.

We have to apologize for the sound quality being a little sub-par for this episode.

And we're back from our unannounced vacation! We took off to do a bit of summer camping and forgot to schedule a podcast.  

Truxton and Papa discussed the usual wide variety tonight - including fairy eating rats, falling bridges, dangerous animals, and Marco Polo.

Tonight Papa and Violet try to overcome the difficulties that interviewing a two-year-old can encompass. Violet enjoys "squishing" the pop filter (see picture below), which doesn't really help to produce a great sounding podcast.

Gillian lost not one, but two front teeth today! The cover picture in this podcast was taken after the first tooth came out and just before she lost the second. She was pretty thrilled! Naturally, the tooth fairy was a large presence in this episode. Other topics discussed include, how we take our tea and coffee, Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley, and (surprise!) books.

Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaur!

Curious George

Are You My Mother?

This episode is a special episode in honor of Mother's Day which is coming up this Sunday! It is also the first time we have attempted to record as an entire family (except for Violet, who preferred to sleep). 

If you enjoy the podcast, do us a huge favor and rate, review, and subscribe! It truly would help us out.

We talked about many books in this episode, but the main one I wanted to make sure you can find is this coloring book. We love ours!

This conversation between Truxton and Papa ends up being heavy on reptiles. After a trip to the zoo, they talk about the Emerald Tree Boa, the rhinoceros snake, snakes that look just like sticks in the water, anacondas, chameleons, copperheads, spring peepers, corn snakes, and bearded dragons. They do also end up discussing the polar bear.
