Sure the Library's nice, but have you seen Cat Squad?! Okay so technically Mary and Kate haven't met those pawfect pals (here for your puuurrtection!) but they're a great excuse to talk kids TV themes - good, bad and ugly. Hi, Kangaroo Beach!

Meanwhile, is it always the parents to blame for a "spoilt" kid, or can we handball that honour to human nature? We're gonna try!

And of course, Stripe's plush lifestyle needs further analysis - or would that get us in trouble with the law??

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!

It's the first time in a year that Kate and Mary are on the same microphone! (And also one very vocal nine-month-old, how did that even happen?!)

Well, more easily than adult friendships, as we discover in Cafe - why was making friends so much easier in our pub crawl days?! 

From the Latin roots of famous Fidos, to the mathematical impossibility of two kids that both sleep in, to what even is sleep anyway, this episode is as delirious as Bandit on a pre-dawn park trip. Can we get through to brekkie and save baby Joe from the many perils of Mary's loungeroom? It's gotta be done!

Surviving bath time's boredom, mislabeled brachiosauruses and code browns is always tough, so Mary and Kate are thrilled to see Bandit's looking for external guidance too. (Anything's better than adopting the Cobra Kai model, right?!) 

Burger Shop has us wondering where one does source parenting wisdom (spoiler: mainly podcasts) and also money (Rich Uncle Pennybags is our best chance). Also, do kids actually make up games anymore, or just steal them all from Bluey?  

Excuse us, gotta get back to writing our parenting book!

It's 2021, school's back and so is Gotta Be Done - but is anyone ready for all the going-one-way-then-the-other-way growing up it requires?? Going by our torrents of tears in Barky Boats, Mary and Kate definitely are not!

At least some things never change, specifically schoolyard strategies for divining future marriages. (Bluey and Mackenzie sitting in a tree!)

Also in a tree, is it God's Eye or just lazy craft? Then fairy gardens put us on a cool Cucumber Quest, and the perfect (and chart-topping!) Bluey Album sends us to Creek heaven.

Kiss kiss kiss, hug hug HUG! (So rapt to be back!)
