Motherhood DVD and Blu Ray

MOTHERHOOD
DVD & Blu Ray
94 minutes PG-13

My family and I received the movie MOTHERHOOD starring Academy Award®-Nominee Uma Thurman (Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction) in the crazy new comedy, MOTHERHOOD.  MOTHERHOOD is loaded with bonus features, includes revealing interviews with Thurman and co-stars Anthony Edwards (“E.R.,” Zodiac) and Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting, “The Riches”). MOTHERHOOD takes us on a journey  through the chaotic day of Eliza Welsh, an urban, stay-at-home mother of two, who comes to realize – in between birthday party fiascos, playground politics and life’s daily messes – what it really means to be a mother.  Following its Sundance Film Festival premiere last January, and its 2009 theatrical release in over 20 major markets, MOTHERHOOD will be available on both DVD and Blu-Ray on February 23rd, 2010. 


Eliza Welch (Thurman) is a former fiction writer-turned-mom-blogger with her own site, “The Bjorn Identity”.  Putting her deeper creative ambitions on hold to raise her two children, Eliza lives and works in two rent-stabilized apartments in a walk-up tenement building smack in the middle of an otherwise upscale Greenwich Village. Eliza’s good-natured but absent-minded husband (Edwards) seems tuned out to his wife’s conflicts, not to mention basic domestic reality, while her best friend Sheila (Driver) understands this – and Eliza -- all too well.


Shot entirely on location in New York’s West Village, MOTHERHOOD takes place in a single day that pushes to the tipping point Eliza’s fundamental fear she’s lost herself. Starting at dawn, her to-do list is daunting: prepare for and throw her daughter’s 6th birthday party, mind her toddler son, battle for a parking space during an epic alternate side parking showdown, navigate playground politics with overbearing moms, and mend a rift after posting her best friend’s confession on her blog. On top of it all, Eliza decides to enter a contest run by an upscale parenting magazine. All she has to do is write 500 words answering the deceptively simple question, “What Does Motherhood Mean to Me?”   And, it’s in the process of trying by nightfall to put these thoughts into words that don’t “sound like bad ad copy,” Eliza rediscovers her own voice and realizes what is truly valuable in her life. 




My thoughts...


My family and I enjoyed watching MOTHERHOOD. Uma, Minnie and Anthony did a wonderful job with MOTHERHOOD. I applaud Uma(character) for being able to juggle so many activities in one day. I prefer a tamer lifestyle myself. lol The movie felt real and I believe many parents will be able to relate to it in some fashion or another.


Warning: This movie has some profanity and sexual content references as does most PG-13 movies. I would recommend this movie for ages 13 and up as the rating states.

Mom's Bible: God's Wisdom for Mothers by Wolgemuth

NCV Mom's Bible, NCV

God's Wisdom for Mothers
Hardcover SRV $29.99


Mom’s Bible: God’s Wisdom for Mothers gives women an awareness of just how precious and vital they are in God’s plan for the family.


The Mom’s Bible: God’s Wisdom for Mothers with notes by Bobbie Wolgemuth is  beautifully designed inside and out, written in the New Century Version. This Bible is a wonderful devotional to help encourage  and give strength to moms of all ages and stages on a daily basis by using God’s Holy Word.

I  like the reference to “You Can Be A Great Mom” because there have been many times in my life that I have felt that I am not the best mom and I am sure you have or will feel that way in your life too at some point. I was thrilled to learn of the Mom’s Bible because I wanted a more personal interaction with my daily Bible reading and this was just the best news ever. I have browsed through it and I like what I see and read from the inclusion of the many wonderful features.

If you have small children, the section on “Questions Kids Ask” will be a blessing to you. There is one question that you may want to share… What’s An Idol? Since, many families including Christian families watch American Idol this is an excellent question to ask and answer. You will find many questions and answers that you may have wanted to ask but kept it to yourself.


Thank you,

Silikids: Siliskin Glasses


Boy am I one excited grandmother. I just learned about this wonderful company called Silikids. Silikids was created by two moms just like us. They were concerned about many of the same health and environmental issues that we keep hearing about so often. (BPA-Free) Silikids took it upon themselves to create fabulous products for children that are hypoallergenic, free of germs, mold and toxins using silicone. They have many stylish products like Siliskins, bottles, bibs, knee pads, cups and glasses.

Siliskin Glasses

I received the 6 oz. lilac Siliskin Glass to review.  It retails for $7.95. There are a few other color choices as well. Please take advantage of the special 10% OFF promotion at www.silikids.com using the promo code silibaby.

I like this new silicone safe product. I immediately took it out of the box and examined it. I read the simple instructions on how to use a Siliskin which included a simple illustration. I began by removing the Siliskin cover from the glass and followed the instructions for putting it on a glass or bottle. You will find some warnings and cautions listed on the instruction sleeve as well. Please be sure to read all of the details when you first begin using Siliskin products.

Safetytat - just in case



Safetytat - just in case

The Tat That Brings Kids Back!

 Did you know?

    * Over 2000 U.S. kids get lost every day.
    * 90% of families will experience losing a child in a public place.
    * 95% will forever remember the trauma of getting lost.


What are Safetytats? Safetytats are special ID tattoos designed to help keep your child safe if they ever get lost. Safetytats also provides tattos that help alert to a specific allergy or special needs of your child. When should you use Safetytats?

Great for:

  • Airports
  • Camp
  • Field Trips
  • Museums
  • Traveling
  • Zoos


Safetytat's are simple to use and easily applied by just peeling and sticking to your childs arm. Every pack comes with a special pen to write your mobile number. You can purchase extra marking pens at Safetytat in a two-pack for only $1.50. The tattoo lasts up to two weeks. To remove, just peel off like a bandage. For more information: Visit Safetytat at http://www.safetytat.com/faq/.

While visiting, check out the new Safetytat Tattoos that are being released just in time for Valentines.



My Thoughts

My four year old daughter has enjoyed showing off her new tattoo. We received the Just Kisses sampler that sells for $9.99. There are 18 - 6 each of 3 designs: 18 Tat Kisses, includes 6 each of 3 messages: I LOVE YOU!, HUGS AND KISSES, and YOU ARE SO SPECIAL.  Actual size: 1.25" x 1.25" Also, we received the Quick-stick write-on! Tattoos by Safetytat. We think that Quick-stick write-on! Tattoos are a wonderful idea to help ease your mind when traveling with small children. My husband and I were discussing the idea that they should put these in vending machines. We read on their web site that they already have their products at many retailers such as Six Flags Over Georgia. We recommend Safetytat Tattoos for parents, caregivers and others that work with small children or special needs people.


Thanks to Safetytat our readers can receive 10% on a purchase of $15 or more. Please use the promo code:  LovingHeartsDesign. This code is case sensitive, please type it exactly as posted. This offer expires on February 14th, 2010.


Win Safetytat Tattoos:  Two of Loving Heart Designs readers can win a sample package of Quick Stick Write-On! in their choice of boy, girl or multi design pack. Visit Safetytat, let us know which Quick Stick Write-On! design package your prefer. Remember to leave your email address in the comment. RV $7.99 - $9.99
