In the last episode of the Mommy Shorts Show (for now!), Randi Zuckerberg comes over to discuss her new tech-friendly animated series on Sprout called Dot. But first, I have to pry Mazzy and Harlow away from their iPads so that they’ll say hello. Easier said than done.
I’ve also got a brand new segment I like to call “Mike on the Street.” It consists of me begging my camera-shy husband to participate on my show and him reluctantly walking around Washington Square Park asking complete strangers about their potty training experiences and doling out packages of Pampers Easy-Ups. Probably not a situation Mike ever thought he’d find himself in when he married me.
Something that didn’t make the cut? Mike accosting a tall blonde woman and prodding her for tales of poop and diapers. “I’m sorry, you want me to talk about what?” she yelled back. “POTTY TRAINING!!!” Mike screamed in her direction as she kept walking. “NO, THANK YOU!” she yelled as a crowd watched their exchange. That tall blonde was Karlie Kloss, aka Taylor Swift’s best friend. Mike had no freakin’clue. One day, I’ll have an epic outtake reel.
Hope you enjoy this episode!
While we were filming the interview, Mazzy spent the majority of the time drawing. It wasn’t until Randi was packing up to leave that we all realized Mazzy had drawn Dot, the character on the front of her book. Pretty masterfully, I might add.
Another favorite moment that wasn’t caught on film was Randi and I exchanging and signing our books for each other. I’m not sure who suggested that but I sincerely hope she enjoys my book!

The new Pampers Easy Ups Training Underwear are designed with a 360° stretchy waistband that makes it easy for toddlers to pull up and down. They are super soft to feel like cotton underwear, but you can be rest assured, they still have the great leak protection of Pampers.

This episode was sponsored by Pampers Easy-Ups but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
My 3yo is fully potty trained but we still use easy ups at night just because I don’t want to deal with any middle of the night accidents. Worth the cents spent for the ease of mind.
I love Mike’s segment! I’m so glad he was such a sport about it. It’s nice to see him on camera too
Me, too! I love Mr. Mommy Shorts!!!
Love your YouTube channel! We just started potty training, so please pray…
I love Mazzy’s drawings. Amazing details!
I can’t wait for the end of season bloopers reel! Yes, please!
I love the mommyshorts show! I hope we get more episodes in the future. I’m curious what you had to negotiate with Mike to get him to do the video 🙂 He did great–approaching total strangers is no small feat.
Subscribed! Please post an outtake reel.
Subscribed! Love your show!
Mike was a good sport! The cheerio trick is an oldie but a goodie!
Yeay! Nice show, really funny. And Mike sound definitely have a segment in each show…he is a natural! ?
Picked me, please!
Great show! Can’t wait to see the new Dot show!
I love these videos. Can’t wait for my girls to see Dot!
She seems so sweet – but Mike stole the show!
Trying to start potty train my 2.5 years old boy, acccck I’m nervous! I loved your video, cute! Subscribed to your youtube channel.

Potty training is my enemy.
Mike is a great sport. Don’t feel bad, I have no idea who Karlie Kloss is either and certainly wouldn’t recognize her on the street.
My coworker doesn’t let her kids play video games, but she does let them play on the phone and ipads. I don’t get the difference! To me, a Nintendo seems much more harmless!
Forgot to mention, I’m in the midst of trying to potty train my 2 year old. Today he told me he had to go potty just a little bit too late — as I took off his pants and diaper, a ball of poop fell out onto my hand. O_O
Looking forward to watching Dot!
I love the mommy shorts show! And those pampers easy ups would really help with potty training my daughter!
I hope the show comes back soon!
My 3 yr old is working on potty training and boys are so much harder
Not potty training yet but we are a dedicated Pampers house!!!

Subscribed! Definitely looking forward to that blooper reel! 😀
I dread potty training. I just don’t know what to do about it.
i’m dreading round 2 of potty training. i wasn’t stellar at it the first time around. yikes.
Loving the extraordinary family series on your YouTube channel!
And my almost 4 year old has no interest in potty training. :/ but in a way, diapers are just easier, so I try to take it in stride.
Love all of the shows!! And I agree, tiny shoes are hard to put on!!
Love your YouTube channel Potty training is already taught with simple steps
I love tech, but I’m scared to let my kids use it because I see all these zombie kids zoned into iPads and who can’t function without a game in front of them. That’s my fear so a limit on screen time is a must for me! And loved the mommy shorts show!
I’m a you tube subscriber. Great show!
Just subscribed to your excellent channel!

You would find this hilarious!
My hubby and I have had to make recent cuts to our expenses due to him taking a new job working as a paramedic. Sadly, because we have two kids in diapers right now, we thought that cutting costs on our diapers would be a good place to start (we are a Pampers family because we have NEVER had a leak with their diapers). So I marched my butt to the local Dollar Store and bought some cheap diapers to try out. I took a box of them to the kid’s daycare and realized that my youngest was being sent home in Pampers (when I knew we had ran out). So, I told her teacher that we had switched to the cheap off brand and that some poor kid was being sent home in Dollar General diapers. Those parents must be so confused!
Subscribed! Love you, lo e your family!
I’m subscribed – just need to watch more! LOL!
We still use Easy ups at night, even though the kid is completely potty trained during the day. Not gonna lie, we use Easy Ups because of Thomas the Train.
Subscribed and Happy (late) Birthday, Harlow!
I feel for Mike, that would not be my fave job either! he’s a good sport though!
subscribed and so sorrry about your iphone and laptob 250 would be a blessing right now
I love Randi! Can’t wait to read her book
I subscribed already. Onyinye Elochukwu
I love your videos.
subscribed! Can’t wait to see that outtakes reel. =)
I have been potty training my lil one for over a year, the only time she was really good about using the potty was during your book reading in Skokie.
We still use training pants at night for my almost-4-year-old. So much easier than changing the sheets every other night!
Your family sets such goals for my family. Hope we can win someday!
Subscribed ✅ trying to potty train my 2 year old son✅Losing my mind in the process✅
Thanks for all you do, it is so reassuring to know I’m not alone.
My almost three year old little guy still isn’t potty trained and has no interest! My daughters were both fully trained by this age so even though he is my 3rd, this is new territory for me. Maybe some “big boy” training pants would do the trick!
Super impressed by Mazzy’s drawing!
