Biz and Theresa check in on sleep. Why do we think “Problem solved!" when it is really always changing? Why is sleep the one issue that when our kids are having trouble, it feels like we are the ones with the problem? And how do we help older kids who suddenly won’t sleep through the night? Plus Biz works the streets, Theresa is someone, and sleep expert Dr. Jodi Mindell comes back to talk about sleep issues for older kids.

Check out Dr. Mindell's book Sleeping Through the Night, Revised Edition: How Infants, Toddlers, and Their Parents Can Get a Good Night's Sleep and you can find out more about her work with the Pediatric Sleep Council here.

Ophira Eisenberg

Biz and Theresa wonder, “Where do party favors go to die?” The answer? Your house. Kids love them, we hate them, and we admit to fully participating in the madness by buying them and giving them out at our own kids' parties. Maybe giving kids $1 when they leave the party is the cheaper and more environmentally friendly way to go! Plus, Biz lets go of something big, Theresa gives herself the silent treatment, and we talk with comedian and host of NPR’s Ask Me Another, Ophira Eisenberg, about having a baby later in life and letting the truths we set for ourselves be changeable.

You can catch Ophira's hilarious NPR show Ask Me Another every Friday. Don't forget to follow her on Twitter@OphiraE and definitely go watch her standup special Inside Joke.

Eliza Skinner

Biz and Theresa are live from San Francisco Sketchfest with guest Eliza Skinner and we're talking about swear words! Our bread and butter! I guess maybe it's weird to hear a four-year-old sound like a sailor at the preschool interview? OOPS. Are some words just bad, is it more about how our kids reflect back on us, or is it just important that kids at least understand what they're saying and the effect their words might have on others? Maybe a little of all of the above. Plus, we enjoy some delightful audience genius and fails, and, of course, a collective listen to a mom having a breakdown.

Eliza Skinner is an excellent twitter person. You can watch Drop The Mic on TBS every Tuesday at 10 p.m. And don't forget to check out her awesome new podcast Cool Playlist where she invites a guest on to make a playlist for a specific life event. First episode to launch on January 30th!

Biz and Theresa wonder if there is anything to birth order as a determining factor in our personalities or if it's basically as reliable as astrological horoscopes? Does being the second child mean we shouldn’t leave the house today or make new investments? Yes, yes, it does. Actually, we discover something terrible…birth order may have nothing to do with our children or how we treat our children and the expectations we have…that may be all us! AGHHHHHH!! Plus, Biz returns from the mountains and Theresa plays pretend.

Biz and Theresa discuss our kids’ budding independence…or lack thereof and wonder how much we, as parents, are to blame for it. What do you mean ignoring our children's desire to do it themselves because we have no patience could be part of it? Weird.

Biz and Theresa explore why it feels like being inside our homes sometimes makes us worse at parenting. Do we have shorter fuses and less patience because of the clutter and the never-ending list of chores that weigh us down when we're at home? Or...is there something "Amnityville Horror" going on? It's probably the clutter. Plus, Biz can’t remember anything, Theresa gets a visit from the Sleep Deprivation Fairy, and we get some incredibly helpful information and non-judgy tips from Dr. Cyrus Rangan at Poison Control.
