Hi everyone. Over the past several years a collection of our listeners have been pledging to support Biddy Bedtime Stories through Patreon.com. They have been doing so by contributing a certain dollar amount for each new episode of Biddy Stories.
By supporting Biddy through Patreon, these generous folks receive a little something in return. Starting in September, we will be introducing something new. For each dollar amount level that a Patreon supporter pledges, that family will be afforded the opportunity to have a special message recorded for their family by anyone in the treehouse. These messages will be written by mom or dad and be emailed to us for one of the treehouse gang to read.
These messages can be words of encouragement, congratulations... most anything. For those pledging $1 per episode, they will have the opportunity for 1 special message each month. Those pledging $2 can have up to 2 recordings per month.... and so on.
So, if you're interested... and who wouldn't be?!.... visit our website, www.biddybedtimestories.com to find out more. In advance... WE THANK YOU! And, to all of our current supporting listeners... well, without your generous support this podcast would not be able to reach a single person.
Sincerely, D, Biddy and all of the treehouse gang.
Douglas toys with the idea of reversing the rolls. He wants Biddy to be the serious person and for himself to be the silly one. It doesn't go to far. However, Douglas does show Biddy, just how funny he can be.
Arts and crafts projects are so so much fun to do. Often times... it's not the thing you make that's so much fun... it's the fun in just making the project. But, no matter what you make there are always some favorites. Among them, glitter and and googly eyes.
Last night Biddy was not interested in recording the story Douglas had written. She thought it was too boring. And, that the punch line was weak.
But, Biddy has agreed to record the story on one condition... that she be able to wear a roll of toilet paper on her head.
And so... here is last night's story done with Biddy wearing a roll of toilet paper on her head. Little did she know the roll of toilet paper would come in handy. Why? Listen to tonight's story and find out...
Thanks go Koo Koo Kangaroo for the use of their song!!! Brian and Neil are wonderful fellow Minnesotans!
Have you ever heard someone say.... "Trust Your Gut"? Well, tonight Biddy and the gang trust their gut. Douglas wrote a story that they really don't like too much and so they all decide to try improvising the story. It doesn't go terribly well. So, Biddy decides to go with Douglas' story.... on one condition....
Biddy decides she wants to start a call in radio show. She wishes to help people with their problems. On the surface, this seems like a very good thing to do... but, we soon find out that our dear Biddy has a little bit of trouble understanding people. This could lead to giving the wrong advice if she's not careful. Will it work? Let's find out.
Tonight, Biddy and the gang have ordered and eaten SIX Extra large Pizzas! They are sitting around the floor, moaning and groaning because they all have eaten... way too much!
Or... have they?
Here are Biddy's 5 lessons for each kid.... hoping that it can make a difference and make every day a better day and YOU a better YOU!
For thousands of years the night sky has filled humans with wonder and delight. Tonight Biddy and Douglas are star gazing at the constellations. One of the constellations in the northern part of the sky is a very special constellation. So special in fact that it has three names. Three names that have three different and very special meanings... in particular... one life saving name.

Everyone feels a little misunderstood every once and a while. As the treehouse friends are sitting by the shoreline of the like, Wyatt starts to open up to how misunderstood he feels as a raccoon. By the end of it all, he finds out that he's not the only one who feels this way. And... wether he likes it or not... it's all going to end with one BIG HUG!
When you're feeling down and a little board, sometimes people say you're feeling... Glum.
Tonight Biddy is feeling glum. That is... until, she starts saying the word 'glum' over and over again!
It's a rainy day. Biddy and Douglas are looking out the living room window as the rain falls down and the thunder rolls. Biddy starts to wonder, why does the thunder come after the lightening flashes.
After much discussion, Biddy starts to understand it this way... Light travels by the speed of Duck and sound travels at the speed of 90 year old Douglas.
Now that school is out for the summer, kids everywhere might be going through a little bit of withdrawal as their day to day routines are now gone. Moreover, they will be missing their friends and teachers too.
As summer begins, it's time to remember that each summer day can hold it's own routines. And, by keeping a little bit of structure in a kids day, it can help them feel more emotionally stable as well as having a sense of purpose and security. Routine is a wonderful thing for the human (and duck's) brain.
And so is Poutine on a Ritz!

Family Movies - Do you have in interest in learning how to make 3 to 4 minute videos that capture the emotions that you feel as a parent right now... would you like to learn how to do this on your phone.
All the time.
I'm thinking of producing a new podcast that helps parents use the phone in their pocket to make movies that will last for ever and carry with them the emotions and poetry that the parenting life presents.
What do you think?
Would you like to know how? It's not as daunting as you think. Or, does everyone do this?
Let me know.
