This is a parenting episode for everyone. While we've never ever wanted to be the hosts who tell you how to parent (because we clearly don't know what we're doing) we couldn't resist having an expert like Robin come chat with us. The truth is that while we're all doing the best we can, it's possible to be doing quite a few things dead wrong. We talk about resiliency, grit, letting our kids fail, and how those empty compliments we gush to our kiddos may be doing more harm than good. Don't worry, this isn't a shame on you episode. Robin is the coolest, and funny and shoots from the hip. We hope you enjoy a fresh perspective from someone who has seen a lot of sh*t. We sure did!

Shayna and Tracey have been friends since the 8th grade – that’s over 25 years. After college, they each moved to separate coasts for a decade. They were reunited when they decided to leave big city life and settle down with their families in Denver, Colorado and Facebook told them their daughters are 3 weeks apart. After several play dates, some more childbirth, some unsuccessful pumping, and the overwhelming nature of mommy community boards, The Pump and Dump Show was born.
The show launched in 2012 in a bar in Northwest Denver and quickly grew to a bi-monthly, local staple for new moms to have a night out. In 2014, Shayna and Tracey took The Pump and Dump Show on its first national tour and continue to perform every month to audiences nationwide.
