TRADITIONAL FAMILY: Mom’s Secret to Stretching the Dollar – Daily Fiber Films

traditional family funny video

Daily Fiber Films is a collective of writers, actors, and filmmakers- all working professionals- who do these projects for “the love of the comedy game”. We develop the script and then on the day of shooting, actors are encouraged to go with the instincts and improvise. TRADITIONAL FAMILY is a great example.

The lead, ERICKA KREUTZ, is an amazingly talented actress and improvised most all of her dialogue. You’d probably recognize her from tv roles and about three national commercials running right now. If the relationship between her and the baby seems genuine, that’s because it’s her son, Beckett, in his first on camera role. He was a natural as well!

Customer Review: OBaby! Easy Entry Sex Swing ~ Lauren Krueger

First of all, let me express my confusion and disappointment that this product is only available for purchase through something called “Amazon Dom.” The free shipping I usually enjoy through regular Amazon Mom would have gone a long way towards making me a happier customer. After all the price of the product was what initially drew me in, as it is considerably less expensive than any other baby swing on the market. Saving money is very important to me, as a new mom! :)

But I guess you get what you pay for, and maybe I should have expected something was wrong right from the beginning. When the name of your product has a glaring typo in it, that’s a serious example of carelessness. And while black is, I suppose, a “[uni]sex” color, green or orange would have been a little cheerier and baby-appropriate.

Let’s talk about the product’s functionality. This swing has consistently received 5 stars from everyone else, and I really don’t understand how that can be. The packaging has a cartoon of a sassy, playful mom on it (trying out the swing, herself!), and that gave me confidence that I would be able to assemble this swing on my own. At first glance I noticed the rugged construction of the straps and handles, which were indeed big enough to fit my own hands and feet. Clearly my five-month-old daughter, Meadowlark, would be able to use this swing well into her teen years! [Read more...]

Linda Roy Records ~ Wry Generation…The…Who?

My teenage son and I were watching the concert for Hurricane Sandy Relief while The Who were onstage.  He knows their music.  His father and I are musicians and we make sure our kids are schooled in the classics, lest they end up with the misguided notion that John Mayer’s got it goin’ on or something.

So when the question came, I was caught totally off guard.  “Who is that?

“What do you mean ‘who is that’, it’s The Who!”

“Who?”

“Them! The Who!”

“Who, them?”

And so it went; own rendition of “Who’s On First”. [Read more...]

List Price: $28.00 Eligible for Super Duper Save Me Shipping

About the Author:

Timothy Ferriss, called “The Superman of Silicon Valley” is author of  “The 4-Hour Body“, the #1 New York Times best seller “The 4-Hour Workweek.” as well as the newly released “The 4-Hour Chef.” Now Timothy has broken down lifestyle barriers for his mommy readers with his newest book release – “The 4-Hour Mommy Week.”

Description:

Kids, kids, kids.  All day, every day, right? Being a mom doesn’t have to be a 24/7 soul-crushing grind. Do you really need to spend hours on end cradling babies or tiger-momming your tweens?  That sort of outmoded helicopter parenting only leads to a downward spiral of juvenile detention, herpes and an obsession with Maroon Five. It doesn’t have to be that way.

And that’s why Timothey Ferriss wrote “The 4-Hour Mommy Week.”

Excerpt:

What’s the secret to being the best mom you can be? Surprisingly, it’s by spending less time with your children.  How do you do that without being brought up on charges?  It’s incredibly easy! Everyone’s a great parent to a kid they never see! [Read more...]

Because she’s a writer, too

My four-year-old and I are sitting across from each other at the kitchen table. I’m on the Mac, writing as usual. She’s coloring. At least, until she puts down the crayons and pushes away her Dora the Explorer coloring book. She has a question for me.

 Mom? Can I have a pen and a piece of paper? I want to write a story.

“Once upon a time there was an elephant who every else thought was crazy, like that mean old kangaroo who really needs a time out, but he was really nice and trying to save those little Who-people on that clover flower. His name was Horton and that mean old kangaroo who needs a time out just didn’t want to listen to Horton about the little Who-people on the clover which isn’t a good thing to do because mean old kangaroos should always listen to crazy elephants named Horton about little Who-people who live on a speck on a clover.

The Mobile Mommy Office

Mobile Mommy OfficeWork-at-home moms.

I know there are a lot of us. And I’m always reaching out to others asking for A Clue as to how to make time for the Trying to Make a Career Out of This Writing Thing while still making time for Buttercup. I’ll admit I’ve sat her down in front of the TV for day-long PBS Kids and Nick Jr. marathons more often than I’d like to think, and yeah sure it’s educational, but still….

There’s gotta be an easier way, right? A way that doesn’t involve hiring a baby sitter with money I’m not yet making to come over and play with my daughter while I stare at my laptop for hours and allows for the best of both worlds where I get to be The Involved Mommy and she gets to Exercise Her Creativity?

But how the hell…? [Read more...]
