Thanks to her precious little ones, Aurie hasn’t slept in years. So that is the focus of this episode. Aurie and Marci chat about why kids won’t go to sleep (even though they desperately need it), sleep tips that work on some kids and not on others, and share a foul-mouthed (but on the money) look at what really goes through sleep deprived parents’ minds.
And because they like rabbit trails, they also cover the new sport of stair luging and favorite Netflix binges.
You can determine if you are a Jennifer Garner parent or a Samuel L. Jackson parent by checking out these two YouTube videos that we talk about in this episode. They are readings of the book Go The F#@! To Sleep.
WARNING: Foul language ahead. Ship the kids out of the room, and if you don’t like hearing the F-bomb, this is not for you.

Love Hart of Dixie. Well, hated the last season. They had to end it too soon so it ended weird. I stopped watching NCIS as there was something else on at that time my husband preferred and we didn’t have DVR or Netflix yet. I keep meaning to pick it up again. Thanks for ruining the info about Zeva dying. I didn’t actually know that yet! lol 😉
One of my friends owns that book and has to hide it from her kids. haha!
My mom took the girls last week. She had the week off from work. But the toddler was puking before she went, the kindergartener puked while there, both my parents got it, and the only two full days I had to be home alone…my husband stayed home from work with the same bug. I got the girls back Saturday…and they haven’t slept since.
I thought I did my time with the toddler. She was up 8-12x a night the first year of her life. Nope. Now the older one keeps having bathroom emergencies in the middle of the night (this stomach bug is the gift that keeps giving) and the toddler is in a nightmare phase. Hey, at least I didn’t get the bug!! 😉
I’m so sorry about telling you about Ziva!! You will still be shocked and possibly cry even though you know it’s coming. Ugh! Sick non-sleeping kids are the worst!! So, you can feel Aurie’s misery. As the parents of teens, they will eventually sleep. All.The.Time. That is until they want to do something with their friends. – Marci
