Finally at the interplanetary pinnacle of the Blueyverse, and Gotta Be Done has gotta wonder - can words ever do justice to sublime Sleepytime?

Well, we hope so, because Kate and Mary have just rambled through an hour's worth!

We wax lyrical about bedtime (it's kind of a solar-system-sized deal) and the politics of parenting, share lunar theories about moon rabbits (they've got Saturn surrounded!), describe what we see when we look into the sun, and reveal which Bluey genius had the idea for the perfect Holst score. 

Prepare for tears - not least because this is our final recap for the current season! Huge thanks to all the listeners old and new who have travelled with Gotta Be Done for the past 90 episodes and 78 recaps. (If you've missed any, what a great time to dive into the archive!)

Stay in touch on socials folks, and keep calm and watch Bluey. We're off to sleep in our own beds. (Well, hopefully!)

Gotta Be Done is ex-journos and Melbourne mums Kate McMahon and Mary Bolling, as we deep-dive every Bluey episode, with plenty of detours into mama life, childhood memories, and everything else we're bingeing, too!

We all fail Mum School sometimes - but damn Mary and Kate are glad there are no adjudicators in our respective showers at the moment!

Get ready to deep-dive pedagogy, feel weird about balloons in baths, and hear a lot about unconditional love - what we're feeling, and the book Kate's reading too. Also, Kate sings! 

Big love to all the people out there parenting, teaching, and wrangling every type of balloon/child. Hope we can all take Chilli's guide-on-the-side wisdom.  

We might just go start again tomorrow. 

(One non-failure and non-episode-relevant thing to get excited about: Mary is on Hard Quiz! No spoilers - except all over our socials! - but if you're in Oz watch here, and everyone else preview here!)

"Things pop up that you can't control. You just have to go with it."

Yet another message for our times - or is locked-down Gotta Be Done just at the point of co-opting any encouragement we can get?

Beyond Chilli truth-bombs, Helicopter has Bluey at her steely-eyed best, and Mary and Kate are loving the parade of colourful characters reminding us of school life. Also, the delights of Longreach (including these amazing Bluey LEGO designs!), distant memories of bushfires (what year is it?) , and baby Joe playing a velociraptor!

Finally, discover the heights of Mary's rage when a childhood game is destroyed. (Looking at you, The Floor Is Lava.)

"Bye-eee!"

Sooo, been up to much? Oh that's very interesting!

Gotta Be Done definitely hasn't been up to hair maintenance, so what better time to tackle Hairdressers? And also, whether Mary and Kate would let the kiddos touch our hair, or even hang us from a tree and rake us (don't worry, Bandit clearly consented!) 

From judgey stylists to George of the Jungle and when parents need to find ears too, it's the full Gotta Be Done treatment! Plus, Mary can't remember the name of the movie with McLovin' (it's Superbad), Kate isn't sure why the music's familiar (tell us if you know!), and we share our new obsession with Bluey TV Tropes!
