Pairing people with pooches on Z Living's newest Tuesday night show, Finding Fido, is something I'd wish I'd come up with. I'm not even going to hide the fact that I wish I'd thought of this concept for a show. It's awesome. How often do people get a dog, without doing research, and the dog [...]
Wedding weight loss transformations happen on Z Living's show Altar'd, and an important episode plays on Valentine's Day at 8 PM. Much of my life was spent overweight. Right before I was to be married, I was a little heavier again. I'd had Little Miss in November of 2006, and my wedding date was a mere [...]

Remember when fall television season started all around the same time? September rolled around, school started, and all your favorite shows fresh new episodes began. Pure joy. Absolute bliss. NOW? Fall television season trickles in slowly, like an I.V. drip in the hospital's emergency room. It's torture. I guess it's what happens when premium channels [...]
James Patterson is one of the most well-known, and well-loved, authors in the world. I mean, he's a native of New York, so of course, he's fabulous, right? American authors like Patterson are few, and far between. However, his novels are too sophisticated for my kids. They aren't old enough to handle Alex Cross, and [...]
We're creating meaningful family time with FiOS every day. However, earlier this month, the kids truly appreciated mommy's dedication to their love for dancing! Little Miss and The Boy are dancers. Yup, that's right, BOTH dance. Little Miss has studied ballet, tap, and hip hop. She's now only doing hip hop, while her brother started [...]
Six Kindergarten aged kids + Two parents = Growing Up McGhee. Get ready, these little walking, talking tornadoes are all five years of age, and taking on Kindergarten, water parks, flower shops, and basically, the world!

No matter how cool you think you are, you're never as cool as Alice Cooper narrating the Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood app. Sorry, it's just the truth. Rock legend narrating an iPad app? It's just downright cool as all get out. Shut up and take my money, please. If you haven't experienced this [...]
You don't have to be a gamer to fall in love with the super cute duo of Ratchet and Clank, that's for sure. I'm certainly not a gamer, and I totally believe Ratchet and Clank rock the silver screen in their new movie, Ratchet & Clank. Ratchet and Clank rock the silver screen Understand: I'm [...]
It's a little over a year, and my kids continue to bug me to play the LeapFrog LeapTV system. Now, with our home back together following a horrible flood, they can play the active video gaming system whenever they want to in their very own playroom! Again, LeapFrog has amazing timing when it comes to sending [...]
Pixar, I expect more from you guys! The Good Dinosaur is cute, but it's not at the level of your previous works of art. Visually, it's breathtaking. However, the story....unique idea, not as well executed as one would have hoped it would be. Disney Pixar's The Good Dinosaur When your kids ask to see an animated [...]
No, I don't head to the movies all that often, but once those movies hit the small screen, I'm all about the movies! I love contemporary movies, but I also love the classics. On a cold, winter day, while the snow is falling, it's nice to curl up and turn on a classic! Here are [...]
Whenever a new Kidz Bop album comes out, I'm pretty much forced to get one. I'm addicted to hearing how the Kidz Bop team of writers changes the most inappropriate lyrics, into kid-friendly lyrics. No joke. It's an obsession at this point! Especially my favorite song right now, Honey, I'm Good. Plus, my second favorite on the radio [...]
I was a little worried about Disney Pixar's Inside Out. After hearing from the producer, Jonas Rivera down at Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in May, I so wanted to fall in love with the movie. While down there, part of the experience included seeing 2/3's of the movie. After seeing it, the worry set in. I [...]
What better way to spend a Friday evening during Fleet Week than to head into New York City to see an off-Broadway show? The city was packed, as it was also the start of Memorial Day Weekend. Weather was gorgeous, and even with tourists packing the avenues of New York City, the walk to 777 [...]
Music brings out the best in all of us. Have you seen some of the videos of people singing along to Shake It Off, and having a great time? Even if you don't like a particular singer, or musician, if they come out with a catchy song - you're going to sing it! Don't fight [...]
Music is something that gets me through each day. I listen to it while I drive, while I work, while I clean, while I drift off to sleep. I don't care if I know the words, or not. I sing along loud and proud. If I'm feeling defeated, music brings me back up from the [...]

Disclosure: Disney invited my family, and I, to the pre-screening of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. The fact that the title character in Disney's Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, is totally in love with the country of Australia, won me over immediately. The kid even [...]

Chris Pratt dancing to 80 music.... that. is. all. #guardiansofthegalaxy
It's not a must see in my book, but Disney Planes Fire & Rescue is a cute one for the kids.
It's always a good idea to learn a musical instrument. Start the kids young, make it a fun experience, and it'll benefit them for years to come!
Summer's here, and there's not always the option to send kids to camp. What can you do with them? Free bowling for kids happening all summer long!
Summer's can be hard on parents, right? Never enough to keep the kids occupied. Well, take them to the movies for $1 all summer long!
Disclosure: Disney was nice enough to send me, the kids, and Mr. November Sunflower to see the movie at a local theatre on Long Island. No monetary compensation was offered, just a chance to view the movie so I could give my honest opinion about #Maleficent. Honest to goodness truth? I'm not a fan of [...]
As always, I'm so thankful to Disney for sending me to see Million Dollar Arm with my family. It's always nice to attend without having to pay, however, as always, I'm going to give my opinions - the good, and the bad. Everything here is 100 percent my own! Let's dig in, shall we? What's [...]
