Introducing MOANA #DisneyMovie

Walt Disney Animation Studios' new feature film "Moana" is about an adventurous teenager who, with help from demigod Maui, sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and save her people. If you have been around A Busy Mommy for the last 10 years, you know that I adore Disney.  This preview landed in my inbox yesterday and I couldn't help but share it.  I'll be at the theater opening night for this one! Three … [Read more...]

Finding Dory in Theaters June 17th {Giveaway}

Ok.  I'm gonna come right out and say it.  I have been waiting for this movie FOREVER. I love Nemo.  I loved Nemo from the moment I first watched his movie.  Every single character, every part of the story line... loved it all.  I have watched it countless times and when they first announcd that Finding Dory was in the works a few years back, I let out a little squeel.  Or maybe a big one. Either way. It's Disney... It's Dory... and I … [Read more...]

On Sibling Rivalry… #StreamTeam

I thought I was being smart. With nearly five years between them they should really have nothing in common. Nothing to fight over. To be perfectly honest I thought that with such a huge gap between them, they would barely be aware the other exhisted. Except maybe at meal times. That, however, is not at all the way it turned 0ut.  From the moment they wake up to the moment I split them up to go to their own rooms at night... they bicker. … [Read more...]

7 Days until Fuller House! #StreamTeam

What ever happened to predictability? The milk man, the paper boy, and evening TV!  TV was a lot different then.  Way back when... when I was a kid.  Channels went from 2 to 13, one was in french, one was local TV and there was a TV guide station in there too.  Our options were limited to say the least. If we weren't going to be home to see a show, we had to program our VCR to record the show... and hope that the programming worked. I mean, who … [Read more...]

I Resolve To Relax, Grow… and Watch Netflix #StreamTeam #NewYearNewView

I have been noted to say. "I don't watch TV... I don't have time." To be completely honest - I don't.  But there is a certain feeling one gets when they put work on the back burner long enough to enjoy a great movie, or binge watch their favourite show.  Lately - I've been doing just that.  I pick up my knitting ( no, it's not just for old people) and I grab my iPad, and I curl up next to the fire place.  Usually it's The Good Wife I'm … [Read more...]

But Mom…Just Five More Minutes #StreamTeam

It happens like clockwork.  Bath at 7pm, snack at 7:30.  At 10 to 8 we start our journey up the thirteen stairs to the bedroom. Step one: "but mom, it's not bed time yet." Step two: "but mom, I'm not sleepy." On the landing we turn..."But mom, just five more minutes?" It's the small victories that make them happy.  The little triumphs that let them feel as though they have a little control over their lives. "Ok, sweetie.  Just five … [Read more...]

So Here Is What I Love About Netflix #StreamTeam {giveaway}

All the TV shows I loved as a kid are on there! I suppose 'oldies' is a relative term.  But being an 80's baby means I grew up with some fan-freekin-tastic TV shows.  Epic...no, Legendary shows that to this day still make me spit milk out-my nose laughing. Every evening around dinner time,  The Fresh Prince of Bel Air was on our screen...when I was younger than that, it was Diff'rent Strokes or The Facts of Life. "ya take the good - ya take … [Read more...]

The More We Learn Together #StreamTeam

I am outnumbered.  Three boys and one girl...just me and a house full of testosterone.   The thing about my boys is they're all very similar.  They are Know-It-Alls.  They fall asleep listening to documentaries.  They obsess over topics until they know them inside out and backwards...just ask my 4 year old how many moons Jupiter has ( 6 according to him) or the names of all the small parts of a Grandfather clock..he knows them all.  His brother … [Read more...]
