There is something about getting your hair done that just makes everything right in the world. I know it sounds ridiculous and even a little shallow. O.K. maybe a lot shallow, but you have to understand I am the heir to a hair dynasty....
Not dynasty like Blake Carrington Dynasty, but my own Mom was all about some hair salon therapy. For her it was more religion than anything else...
Do you remember the jelly bracelets from the 80's? I do. I had them in hot pink and black. Madonna even wore them in some of her videos. I really wasn't suppose to watch Madonna, especially the "Like a Virgin" video, but MTV was the new frontier and jelly bracelets were all the rage. That and some lace gloves with the fingers cut out and, oh yes, remember jelly shoes?
Right now another jelly bracelet is taking the world by storm....
You know sometimes you have these amazing friends. They probably live right around the corner or down the street and maybe in the next neighborhood, but you never seem to be able to get together.
Life is always so busy.
You know your friends are there tucked away in their home down the lane and that gives you comfort. When they call to tell you they are moving to Prague for two years, you then realize, "Oh no! We were suppose to get together more!"
I am a people lover. I have always enjoyed getting to know people in a variety of settings whether it's school, work, church, or travel. Since my childhood, people fascinate me with their stories, their intricacies, and their unique qualities.
For me there is great enjoyment in hearing other people's stories and learning about their points of view, and sometimes through my work telling a small chapter of their lives.
But when people are just plain rude, it is hard to be amused. When they are rude to my children, well, you can just bet all the above warm fuzzy magic goes right out the window. You might have noticed it flying by at around 4:30 this afternoon....
Drum roll please....it's our first Mommy Message TV Skype interview.
Recently Mommy Message told you about a nifty new app for the iPhone or iPod Touch called Tales2Go that allows parents to have audio storybooks at their fingertips anytime, anywhere for their kids to enjoy.
We had a great time on our Mommy Message video interview with Tales2Go co-founder Tracey Weil via Skype. Tracey along with her husband William started the Tales2Go company after seeing a need to find quality audio books for their own three children. In our interview Tracey talks about the inspiration and the features of Tales2Go.
(Our interview fell during spring break for our kiddos, so my Middle Bee who had been working on a craft during the interview decided instead to build towers with plastic water bottles. The sound effects follow. Even on Mommy Message TV, anything can happen when it is live and probably more so when you throw kiddos into the mix. I really needed to have Tales2Go on for my little man. Why didn't I think of that?)
