But now she’s playing the real life role of a mom and she’s just released her second book called Situation Momedy: A Very Special Episode in Toddlerdom.
In our conversation, we’ll talk about how she started acting at an early age and what advice she has for parents with kids who want to act. We’ll talk about how the fast-talking skill she developed on Blossom has helped her as a parent. And we’ll talk about how real world parenthood compares to the family sitcom.

About Breaking Down Parenting: A ParentNormal Podcast
Since this episode was originally released, the show has evolved into Breaking Down Parenting: A ParentNormal Podcast. It’s a show that’s for imperfect parents by imperfect parents. Hosted by humorist and imperfect parent of three Chris Cate, every episode breaks down a topic that causes parents to break down, such as putting kids to bed, potty training, the terrible twos, homework, clothing, discipline, cleaning up, cooking for kids, and so on….
By the end of each topic breakdown, parents will hopefully realize they aren’t alone in their struggles and that the craziness all parents go through is actually quite funny when it’s looked at in the right light. After all, the mission of the show is to help parents laugh when they want to cry.
