On this week’s episode, Jamilah and Dan answer listener questions from a mom that’s having second thoughts about a second kid and a mom whose kid wants to travel across Europe. As usual, we share our triumphs and fails and offer up some recommendations. For Slate Plus, we talk with Mini Milah, Jamilah’s six year-old daughter, about her new favorite restaurant.
