Funny work-from-home dads & best friends screenwriters Joe Ballarini and Adam Sztykiel (my husband) riff on:
- how fatherhood has changed them
- how much us moms scare them
- and how they’d man-handle the apocalypse (God help us all!).
We also share:
- Sabrina’s latest antics (!!!)
- the dads’ opposing views on “maternal gatekeeping”
- marriage after kids
- Joe's epic Dad-urdays with his adorable, half British baby Theo
- and what they hope to remember most about these intense early years of parenting.
Plus, we talk about the inception of Joe's brand new middle grade novel series, A BABYSITTER’S GUIDE TO MONSTER HUNTING (published by fancy pants Harper Collins), the first of which will be released this June. Expect to see it in theaters as well, as Montecito Picture Company and Walden Films are producing Ballarini's film adaptation.
I’m so proud to report that it has fantastically written, funny, and super empowered female leads (#girlpower!), and I cannot wait for Sabrina to be old enough to read it.
Here’s an #atomicmoms parenting question to chew over: would you feel comfortable leaving your child sleeping in a hotel room if you stayed on the premises and had a monitor? Share on instagram (@atomicmoms) and our “Atomic Moms” Facebook page.
