Our lives are like a show. We get to write it, produce it and play it out for our utmost joy! It is no wonder we fell in love with Kelly Lester’s Show “Let’s Do Lunch!” on Easylunchboxes.com. Turns out, my daughter responds to great old fashioned entertainment. Because of this show, she now packs her own lunch for school the night before. True Story. Thank you Kelly! http://www.easylunchboxes.com/
Sometimes videos have no point. Just like CANDY. (Charlie & the Chocolate Factory reference) And just so you know, I VLOG even when I wake up with a busted blood vessel in my eye. I think it is a good look for me. Creates sympathy. Wait… did someone mention CANDY? Oh… yes. We LOVE the Double Rainbow Guy on YouTube! Wait, this Vlog is a helpful parenting video for entertainment on a budget. When your kids are bored with Disneyland…or your wallet is empty from said land.
I am not a parenting or child behavior expert. I have “Go To” Peeps for that and they know who they are. But I couldn’t wait to share this amazing thing that happened when my daughter discovered the electric fan for the first time when our air conditioning went out. I just found her in the hallway and grabbed my video camera. I did not script her. Does the fan have mysterious powers over our children? You be the judge. And please feel free to share your personal experiences.
How do you take the “mystique” out of defending yourself from violent predators? Well…I put my favorite gal pals in the Dojo with my Sensei and several other amazing black belts. The result is women learning how to defend themselves in a non-threatening place of complete support. Having FUN with it helps alleviate the “fear” of an attack and allows the participants to access their inner power. Then we go out for Sushi and Kocktails and some much needed “Girl Time”. SERIOUS FUN… Seriously ready for anything.
In the studio with Michael & CC getting the form down for the last song “My Kitschy Kitschy Girl” on my “Life is the Party” project. Elizabeth was home from school with a bad cough. Notice the rag around her neck keeping it warm with VICKS! Can you guess who I wrote that song about?
We don’t just watch movies together, we watch them a hundred times until we have every cool line memorized. There are some real gems in movies that we translate into our lives. We call it “Cartoon Wisdom”. I LOVE when these quotes come out of my daughter’s mouth “out of the blue”. Can you guess which animated feature Elizabeth’s quote is from?
