Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 11

It’s getting real now. I’m up to 11 episodes of Show & Tell Tuesday. At this rate, I’m going to have 12 episodes soon! I’ll be honest, though. I kind of ran out of time to do a video at home like a real show & tell so instead, I took it on the road. As soon […]

Have a Ball on National Ice Cream Day!

National Ice Cream Day

Have I got some good news for you… It’s Sunday! And while that might typically mean the day when the weekend comes to a close and everyone prepares for the work week (and in some cases, the school week) ahead, the third Sunday in July stands for something different. It is, indeed, National Ice Cream […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 9

Show and Tell

This week, I’ve got something HOT to show you and it’s all because of a book I’m reading. It’s called “Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat?” (Answer: yes). So as I’m going through every single corner of my house, I’m asking some hard questions and coming up with some easy answers: IT’S GOT […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 8

Show and Tell

You guys. This is my EIGHTH episode. Another five episodes and it will be like I just filmed a major network series while I sit and anxiously hope it gets picked up as a mid-season replacement. (Note to entertainment network executives: My agent is, um, on vacation so you can send all your inquiries directly […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 7

Show and Tell

It’s as simple as this. I’ve got some stuff I want to show you so every week I’m doing it old school. It’s time for Show & Tell! Because some people like a good video prompt now and again, I’m encouraging you to participate. If you want to do so, I only have a few […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 6

I’ve been making videos SIX STRAIGHT WEEKS in a row! I’d say that makes a link-up better than any I know of. I tried doing this strictly through YouTube but they’ve decided that video responses and link-ups just aren’t as cool as they used to be. So here’s a glimpse at Episode 6 of my […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 1

You know how kids have show & tell in school? Actually, kids don’t even have show & tell very often anymore. God forbid they should talk about anything non-school-related when there’s learnin’ to be had. But let’s face it. Kids like to show off the cool stuff they have. Not to make other kids jealous […]

Getting Your Kids to Talk at the Table

Kid Conversations

From the moment my son learned to form words, he has literally never. shut. up. I’m not complaining. I’m a talker. I come from a family of talkers. I’m also a nervous talker. When it’s quiet, I feel the need to fill up the silence, which I find really odd because when I’m alone, I […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 4

This is it, folks. The last video from the celebration. And it was quite a celebration. I know there are plenty of naysayers out there. I know there are people that just don’t get the Disney magic. That’s cool. You can just go about your lives. But for those of us that went and want […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 3

  The days are getting longer and my evenings getting shorter. So the time it takes to edit a video is getting rougher. Especially tonight. Tomorrow morning, I have to (voluntarily) be up and out by 5:30am. Honestly, it doesn’t matter if I’m on East coast or West coast time, 5:30am is still FREAKING early! […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 2

Today was the BIG conference day and what did I learn? A lot. But let me start with the obvious. I’ve learned that shifting to West Coast time and spending a long day in Disney town makes it really really tough to edit and upload a video at the end of the day. Especially when […]
