Biz and Theresa get a visit from the Tooth Fairy and discover we're totally unprepared for both the high emotional cost and high monetary cost of a baby tooth these days! Also, Theresa learns all you need is a box and an imagination to lose your mind, Biz has a bright idea that's a failure, and a listener’s rant reminds us that 90 percent of parenting is having to do something you don't want to do. Plus, our guest, Dr. Gloria Walther, is an Early Childhood Development expert and she drops crazy knowledge bombs on us! She helps us with a range of common issues we confront with 3- to 5-year-olds, like sharing, listening, telling the truth, and more. Seriously, you do not want to miss her!

Biz and Theresa discover that change is hard, especially when that change is your precious child starts lying to you...without the courtesy of being any good at it! Sadly, this isn’t one of those phases you can ignore in hopes they will grow out of it, much to Theresa’s dismay. Clearly, the only answer is putting the fear of God into them. No chance of future issues with that solution. Plus, a genius listener leans ON instead of leaning IN and we talk with Jennifer Oxley, co-creator of the PBS Kids show Peg + Cat, who puts a new spin on night wakings with a newborn!

Biz and Theresa tackle toys this week! What's better, eco wooden toys or plastic? Who cares! As long as they keep the kids amused so we have a minute to catch our breath. Plus, Theresa can't answer any more kid questions and Biz just wants to be left alone to brush Repunzel’s hair. Together, we learn that the holiday break may have been a tad too long and no bathroom is big enough to provide much-needed sanctuary from the household chaos.

Plus helpful tips on how to survive, Biz confirms a new mother’s worst fears that it actually is hard, and Theresa proves to be more fun than a Disney movie. Brooklyn artist Jenny Williams joins us to talk about her new book What My Daughter Wore and about keeping our creativity going after having kids.

Biz and Theresa admit we're sometimes in a rut. In fact, as moms we've been in almost every kind of rut there is (other than PODCASTING RUT, obvi). The question is how to get out of them? We propose inventing a new rut that's actually an enjoyable place to be. Plus, Biz gets a free car wash, Theresa discovers a fifth food group called "fruit leathers," and we chat with singer-songwriter (and new mom) Jill Barber, who shares her secret for switching gears between loving mommy and live musician.

Come over to our facebook page where we invite you to share what kind of rut you're in and what you're doing about it! (Or, if you like a tad more privacy than fb allows, post your comments to the episode thread on the MaxFun forum!)
