  • I love these! It’s so fun to get this side of your group.
    Siblings can be so great. My brothers are my BFFs.

  • This podcast made ME cry! Garance, that message from your mother about making friends with your sister is what did it. I am the mother of two sons in their 30s and while they have never been close, lately things have gotten worse. I may have to sit them down ala “Mama Dore” and straighten them out.

    Also, I was sad to hear that so many of you have divorced parents. Husband and I have been together almost 35 years — we were joking that maybe we didn’t give our sons enough dysfunction to bond over!

    As an only child myself, I completely agree with the comment about “being comfortable at a table with adults”. I enjoyed my parents friends, and vice versa, always going to dinners and parties with them. I was also as happy on playdates as I was in my solitude. It’s all about how you socialize your kid!

  • OMG! I know Natalie too, through her sister! Love this episode!
