Hallmark produces safe, family friendly movies. Youve Got a Friend is one of those movies that was originally shown on television in 2007. Its being released on DVD this week and if you want to win a copy of this very safe for the family movie keep on reading. Youve Got a Friend stars John [...]

Its not that the show was that awful, its just that I didnt really like anyone in the show that much to sit through the majority of the people that I didnt like. The dads were hapless, some of the kids were spoiled brats and the women came across as knowing that their men would fail miserably. I could listen to Jeff Foxworthy recite the phone book and hes the one strand that kept me entertained through this show.

Low brow humor 101, subtract a word and insert the word Poop. Some people love Everybody Hurts and others think its an adult contemporary mess that puts them to sleep. Now that were potty training, more often than not I hum the chorus Everybody poops, sometime
., while Toddler Mojo is on the potty.
I dont know the rest of the lyrics, Ive heard them countless times, but now it always degenerates into Everybody poops and so should you

Many doctors have noted however, that women have varying PHs and that it is the acidity of the urine that determines the colour change. There is no hard evidence proving that the PH in a pregnant woman changes according to the gender of the baby.
Cravings, Drano test and Chinese calendar are just three more baby gender testing methods that fall under the broad heading myths and old wives tales.

The Yellow Horsey has been with us for almost 6 months. In toddler toy playtime this is possibly an epoch that has never existed. We purchased the yellow horse with a Little People farm. Toddler Mojo still plays with the farm occasionally, but The Yellow Horsey as hes come to known as has been to three states and is with him most of the time.
Its quite the miracle that hes never been lost.

If you feel guilty about not being able to be at home with your kids, then you may take out that guilt by being more controlling. The unfortunate, old mantra on the double standard of womens work also factors into things. If both people work out of the house then the household tasks need to be shared. When they arent thats when the teeter totter of house work moves, jealousy, resentment , sniping and the lack of physical contact that made you parents in the first place starts to happen [..]

Dads are not angry all the time. My anger is always here but its graduated into several levels. These levels can be accessed at any moment, even skipping levels and going straight to rage at the drop of a hat.
If my son is doing something silly when I ask him not to its merely an annoyance. If hes throwing something when Ive asked him not to its a different level and if hes about to walk into a parking lot thats where the rage kicks in.

If youre not familiar with the Power Rangers you dont have kids that watch Nick or are between the ages of 5-11. If Sid and Marty Croft had more ninjas, a bigger budget and access to CGI they wouldve been doing it back in the 70s.

Im a big stop-motion fan. I admire the hard work and dedication it takes to create the art form. Having said that, there are good stop-motion films and bad ones, it all boils down the script and story. While the story in ParaNorman is common at first glance, its well paced, not predictable and laced with enough older jokes to keep the adults entertained.

I gave the book to some wise 9 year olds and asked them what they thought of Marlow and the Monster. Even if youre different it doesnt mean that you cant still be someone elses friend, a sage 9 year old told me. As an adult reading the book my main takeaway was that the monster isnt as bad as you think he is and that hes actually quite different than what you think.

My eyes rolled when I heard the premise. Had Tim Burton directed this movie it wouldve been about some freaky, misunderstood garden boy with a dark secret who just wants to fit in and looks like Johnny Depp. Timothy Green also has shades of Forest Gump in that youre always rooting for this character and their eccentricities. Thankfully, The Odd Life of Timothy Green is based on a story by Ahmet Zappa and Director Peter Hedges play it slightly magical and not weird at all.

If I was 28 years old and my mother was fighting my battles for me Id be mortified. Shut up mom, sit down and let me handle it please, youre embarrassing me and exposing holes in my arguments. The legal elements, if there are any in this case-will play out in the courts.

He loves this toy. He takes the yellow horse that came with the farm everywhere-I mean everywhere. When he takes a nap, the farm is in the crib with him. The farm doors make animal noises, the sliding doors on the side make noises and there are other critter noises it makes when you push things.

When I was single I had some horrible dates. One such horrible date had me picking up said girl at her friends house and going to McDonalds. Halfway through the date, which up until this point had lasted 10 minutes, I said, This isnt working out. Do you want to go home now? Im so thankful to be married now.
Do you have a story or tip about getting ready for a date?

All of eyeglasses since then have been similar. Depending on your demographic you would say that they looked like Buddy Holly or if youre a bit younger, Drew Carrey.

The animation is similar to anime, with lush, detailed backgrounds and scenery. As with anime, the facial features are the weakest, but are still much sharper than some animation and it is leagues above here anime used to be. We saw an episode with a 5 year old and they werent too keen on it. The 6 year old though seemed to like it much more. Consider that Im a couple years older than 6 and Iron Man: Armored Adventures can be enjoyed by a wide range of people.

It generated a couple good laughs from me and it was an enjoyable movie. However, Im a middle aged guy who sometimes thinks too much about marketing and pop culture. I took my 11 year old niece to Ice Age with me. She is close to the target demographic
there I go thinking too much again. Heres what she thought about the movie:
Ice age 4 was a fantastic movie! I would recommend it to everyone!

It certainly is better when Bob Saget or Tom Bergeron introduces a clip of you getting kicked in the groin. Then you win $100,000 and the searing, dull throb has subsided to a dull, sly grin.
That is the only situation where getting kicked in the groin is funny-and then its only funny if you win buckets of cash. Cartoons, The Three Stooges and idiots on YouTube have led popular culture astray in thinking that this is fun to watch or enjoyable in any manner.

First off, let us correct some vocabulary. You adopt a pet, you dont buy one. If you buy a pet then youre looking for a disposable item that doesnt have roots. Adopting a pet is serious business and you need to involve the entire family for this long term commitment. Its a semantic issue, but one would expect that a site like CARE 2 wouldve encouraged adoption, rather than buying a dog.

To me it looks like an airbrush painting of a bikini, something that youd see at a carnival or a novelty shop. They were probably selling something like this near the Jersey Shore or Myrtle Beach last summer and the media or parents didnt take notice.

One of the things I like best about using the PowerTouch with Aquatec to shave is that you dont need expensive solution to dunk the shaver into. All you need to do is open up the razor and clean it with tap water. Occasionally you need to use the little brush to clean the foil, but that is it.

As someone who reads the book to a curious toddler I like the book because its fun, short and full of colors and activities that make reading it fun. Toddler Mojo would agree in that he likes the pictures and can read some of the words, but we keep the pop out aspects of the book away from his toddler hands. Arlo Needs Glasses will also help kids get familiar with glasses and learn that some people, or even dogs need to have glasses.

In hindsight, we didnt sell potty training well enough to Toddler Mojo. He needed to know that this was something new and not scary. We sold it as big boy diapers. Since the initial try we explained it to him as big boy underwear, emphasizing more of the big boy elements and less on the diapers. Diapers are for babies, he correctly pointed out to us.

I use it when my wife is out of town to watch action movies and my wife uses it when Im out of town to watch musicals or feel good movies.
My wife just watched Joyful Noise the other week. Personally I find the title ironic because its highly likely that I wouldnt have found the movie joyful at all. She, however, loved it and its happy story of a church choir gave her a respite from the chaos of two noisy children.

Merida is a Princess who is the object of three clumsy suitors. Her father is trying to get her married ASAP and holds a series of Highland Games to determine who the best man is for her. In reality Merida is a better warrior than all of the men, has a big fight with her mom and runs off to the wood where she meets a witch.
Just before halfway through she meets the witch and the movie takes more of an old school Disney animated approach. PLOT SPOILER

When I first picked it up I grimaced and laughed, my wife asked what was wrong. This feels like a toy, hold it, I said. The device is so light weight that I didnt think that it could cut anything, much less my facial hair. It didnt get better when I turned it on, because it doesnt make any noise. It's not that my cordless shaving devices need to sound like they're gas powered, but I was certainly expecting something other than nothing. Sure Ill try this light weight shaving devi [..]

Assuming that it really happened, what is it with celebrities having naked pictures of themselves on their phone? At the intersection of celebrity and vanity there is a void where common sense dies and naked pictures are taken. You can be a hot, sexy parent- Im all for that; but parading your idiocy and lack of common sense does not help your children.

A Perfect Pet for Peyton is a good book for you to read with children aged 7-10. The younger set will enjoy the challenges of the vocabulary, in addition to the numerous animal pictures. The older kids will learn that people express themselves in different ways. At the back of the book there are also some questions to help guide you through a discussion with the kids.

Im reminded of some sage wisdom that was laid down by one of the members of The New Kids on the Block. I forget the exact quote or where I read it but its a good reality check for most things, including getting older.

Is your favorite scene when theyre in the blimp talking about the next man? Your favorite scene could be when theyre tied up together in the fire pit with the German Army in the other room. Regardless, this is one of the best father/son movies out there. Its light, breezy and packed with action. I cant wait to watch it with our son.

However, with just a little more effort your yard can have the illusion of being semi-professionally maintained. We mowed two quick exterior paths along the exterior of the yard and then mowed down the middle. When one half of the yard was finished we went to the largest swath of grass and continued doing the other side.

Amount of redeeming content on E!=0. Im all for the occasional brain candy and I dont want to judge; but E! makes the programming on Spike TV look like mensa-esque in comparison. When you write just sayin its essentially a cowards way of saying Well, I disagree with you but Ill do it in a smarmy way that doesnt require an intelligent response from me.

When I got home I described it to my wife and she was confused. So, its a movie about the origins of life, robots and aliens? she said. I obviously did a poor job of explaining the plot to her. Its been a couple of days since I saw it and I can now say its awesome. The movie is deep, makes you think, but also has great action, robots and aliens. Dont see Prometheus if youre expecting an alien, action packed sequel to Aliens.

For the past two and a half weeks I havent shaved. Not that I want to share my bathing and shaving habits with any readers, but I do like a good challenge. Shaving wasnt a challenge per se, but the folks at Phillips Norelco challenged a couple of guy bloggers to ditch the blade and try going electric. For the record Ill also accept any challenges that revolve around duct tape and/or bacon.
My first step was to grow the facial hair. That step is easy for me, but very difficult for my [..]

My wife and I havent discussed this yet. Granted this is part of the equation that led us to this, but having a child who can barely talk ask you what this is-was not expected.

When Toddler Mojo turned 26 month he started to request this book. Winnie Pooh, was his request as he brought this very large book to us. The stories are a bit more difficult for us to get through, but he loves them. For a while he was sleeping with the book. Wed go in there at night to turn off his light and his face would be jammed up against a heffalump. Side not for parents: you know you read this book a lot when you start to order a hefeweizen, but say heffalump.

We did put the vinegar mixture in one of the large spray containers that used to belong to a name brand weed killer. That was a mistake. White vinegar makes things rust easily, add salt to that and it does it even quicker. The spray container has small metal screws inside it which rusted the moment that the mixture went across it. It even stained concrete. That stain does fade a bit with time, but its still there after a couple weeks.

As the stay at home parent I brush Toddler Mojo's teeth twice a day. Once we finish with that we have just enough time to eat and go back to sleep. Brushing the teeth of a toddler is like trying to force an octopus to use chopsticks to eat fish. It requires lots of patience, calm words and upper body strength to securely hold them down.

Its book that youll read aloud to your child. The sentences are short enough so that you can put lots of emotion in each one. As a parent that reads aloud to two children, there is nothing quite as draining as reading a long sentence to squirmy children.
R.W Alley does the illustration and if youve read any childrens book youll recognize his style. Its very detailed with realistic figures and Alley makes good use of the page space.

He (Shankman) also spoke the truth in this very succinct quote, Nothing exciting ever happens in your comfort zone. That quote stuck in my head, yeah, but

Huggies has always kept Toddler Mojo dry. There was a brief period when we tried something else for him; but it was leak central at Urinetown and the population was spreading.

She acknowledges that the relationship between husband and wife is the most important element in a family. My wife is down with that theory too. The last chapter of the book was a little frustrating to read because it details a typical frustrating day in the life of a stay at home parent where nothing seems to get done.

Some days Ill go to Toddler Mojos preschool early so I can watch them play on the playground. The trick is to park just a couple rows back so you can see the playground but your little guy cant see you. There are a couple other parents that arrive early too, all so we can watch our kids. They wont remember the Sports Days or the way they flail their arms and run in circles. OK, neither of those are particularly memorable, but the way he acts now will change a little bit as he gets ol [..]

Sometimes my Bride will surprise me with sweetie, tell me what you love about me. In the guy handbook it should state that anytime your girlfriend or Bride starts a sentence with Sweetie

It helped that Mommy and Toddler Mojo came with me to Orlando. Even though I knew that Id be networking or in seminars for the majority of the time I wanted them to experience the customer service and atmosphere of Disney. They played in the parks of course, but it was the fact that our son walked into the pool, instead of having to be carried, that was the high point of her vacation.

The fight scenes in Haywire are closer, tighter and more realistic than the average spy movie. In that regard, Haywire make you feel embarrassed if you saw Salt, which looks like a kids movie compared to this. Soderberghs direction is too artsy for the first quarter of the movie; using music too much and capturing the mood, but missing some of the action.
If Haywire had more action it wouldve been a much better film. As it stands, it didnt have enough action for a mancave movie, no [..]

Hulk comes to the house through a subscription. The other three I pick up at the comic book store. It would be cheaper to get them through a subscription, but theres a certain feeling going to the comic book store. From an entrepreneur level it helps support small business and thats a good thing. You can also look at other titles that might interest you. For us The Simpsons is always a close 2nd. If any of those DC titles start to crap out well be coming for you Homer.

Dont stop in intersections or immediately after a ride to look at your map. Step to a corner or just before you enter an intersection. Most tourists will stop in the middle of an area and figure out where theyre going and this takes much more time than needed.

If you know where youre going you can also cut through the stores or restaurants that are at most intersections.

You can get ahead of the procrastination ball by ordering some spring flowers for your bride now. Wives like flowers, its a universal truth.

However, wives like flowers is a much better universal truth, they also make her happy and smell a whole lot better.

David Lee Roths appearance was enjoyable, but he forgot the words to many of the songs and his voice was giving out. On many of the songs he simply stopped singing, pantomimed his way out of it or dropped the microphone to his waist. DLR was having fun for sure, but for a concert where tickets started above $150, one should expect fun and professionalism. Eddie Van Halen was obviously having fun, but he didnt stop playing the song or forget any of the chords. One of the refreshing thin [..]

Last year we started cleaning most things inside the house with white vinegar. Add a little dish soap to it, pour it in a spray bottle and its supposed to kill weeds. Most of the organic boards I visited said that white vinegar really works, but takes a couple applications. However, factor in that a gallon of white vinegar costs less than two dollars and if it works, this method is worthwhile.

One issue or instance should not determine how you vote. A person who votes according to one individual issue is an uninformed person whos easily led; and that description goes to those on the right and left.

The 6 month old really enjoys looking at things now. When we read books he sits in my lap now and looks at the pictures with his big brother. He loves going outside and watching the tree limbs move around in the wind. Sometimes when I need a moment to cook or do something Ill put him in the stroller in front of the cats. More Mojo loves looking at anything with colors or that moves. Our cats are white and sleep a lot, but I still think he likes to look at them.

The choreography is amazing. If youre familiar with Jackie Chan and how well timed his fights; you will be in awe of what you see in The Raid. If you like Tony Jaa (and are waiting for him to release another movie) you will be highly entertained.
Two standouts in The Raid are Iko Uwais and YaYan Ruhian. Uwais plays a cop who cant be bought; while Ruhian is Mad Dog, the main bad guys assassin. Uwais displays many of the characteristics that make Tony Jaa and Chan so entertaining. Much [..]

The instructor was a very fit, brunette, Russian woman who looked like Linda Hamilton from T2. For the first part of the class I tried to keep up. If any of my classmates, or more likely me, made a mistake she quickly called us out and said What are you doing, sit down and watch. Her firm was strict, loud and with a Russian accent. She was Anna Chapman in a leotard out to verbally intimidate lazy inflexible American men with bad backs.
Have you ever attended a function where the regula [..]

If the puppy has short hair and looks anything like a Labrador retriever theyll be a 40 pound dog in two years. Look at the puppys paws. Do their paws look too big for their small body? If they do then the puppy will be a big ole dog in the very near future.
Adopting a small dog and adopting a puppy are two different things. Educate yourself before you start the adoption process about what breed is best for you.Thinking about adopting a dog?
Any dog that you adopt should be spayed/ne [..]

Sock Ons are a simple concept for small baby feet. Its a covering that goes over their little baby feet that keeps their socks on. Its a simple concept and Sock Ons do exactly what their advertised to do.
When Toddler Mojo was a wee baby hed consistently kick his socks off once he discovered his feet. We lost more than a couple pairs of socks. Some were common white baby socks, but a couple of them were the more expensive baby socks that look like shoes. Those socks are cute, but it [..]

At times Mirror Mirror makes a play for being contemporary and modern, but then immediately retreats back to fairly tale land. Its frustrating because it give you just enough of The Princess Bride or Enchanted to remind you of just how good, and rare, an entertaining PG rated movie is.
Julia Roberts accent alternates between British and American. Whats more, she sucks the life out of every scene shes in. I like Roberts, shes a good actress, but here shes totally unbelievable an [..]

In her defense she says that her son loves eating from her mouth and will crawl across the room to attack her mouth. However, in the defense of parents Ill say that your son needs to learn how to eat with a spoon. It will help his motor skills, coordination and interpersonal abilities, assuming hes not planning on dating birds when hes older.

You can really feel the water flushing out the gunk between your teeth. That sounds disgusting. But would you rather have the gunk flushed out by water or thrown up into your mouth using string?

Ive always been very lucky to some extent. Of course there were periods where things didnt go my way and I wondered what the heck I was doing. At one point I had recently moved to Key West to accept a radio job. Shortly after moving there the General Manager left town and raided the prize closet, which had air plane tickets and hundreds of other prizes. A couple of weeks after that the owner of the station had the station mail forwarded to his address in Cleveland. I felt like a kid wh [..]

Since that time weve used the Brother P-Touch to create labels for all sorts of childrens related activities. It would be so cool to say that I created labels for my vintage Star Wars collectibles and comic books, but the labels are much more useful for things relating to our toddler. That, plus nobody is getting near my comic book stash.
For example today I made a rice dish for teacher appreciation day. On the plastic storage unit I make a quick label, placed it on the lid and should [..]

Some say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result. If thats the case then Im crazy for Jason Statham. I watch his movies and most of them since The Transporter have been bad. Just when I was about to lump Statham in a pile with all my [...]

Guys will like the action. The alien combat sequences are effective, quick and just violent enough to be PG-13.
Dejah Thoris. Thats the Princess in the movie and shes played by Lynn Collins. Shes the hottest space Princess since Slave Leah. Dare I say
.shes hotter than Slave Leah because Dejah Thoris is also a warrior who kicks butt with a sword.
This is a movie that I look forward to seeing again and hope that a sequel is made. Go into the theater with a light mind and John Car [..]

An overwhelming majority of the dads surveyed at least split the grocery shopping evenly with their spouse. For couples that have an oldest child 3-5 only 10% of the respondents dont participate in the grocery shopping. So 90% of the dads with a child in that age group are assisting with the grocery shopping, go dads.

The language of the bill puts the onus on the mothers by pointing out their unmarried status. Another aspect of the bill that has angered people is the fact that Grothman is neither married nor has children. The wording in Grothmans bill is sloppy, but the goal of his bill is noble. I assume that hes trying to legislate something against deadbeat dads that dont stick around once the baby is born. Costa Rica is way ahead of the U.S. in this department. In 2001 Costa Rica passed t [..]

While I would love to say that I started that conversation, it was my wife who started that chat with me shortly before the birth of Toddler Mojo. We sorted out all of the details and properly filed them so that any and all medical situations would be covered in the event of her or my death. In the unlikely event of both of our deaths a close relative will receive Toddler Mojo, More Mojo, the two cats and the two dogs. I can assure that said close relative wants us to live a very, very long t [..]

Dont do this job with your toddler around. We started the job with our toddler helping us with his tools. After a couple minutes (when the WD-40 wasnt around) we got really frustrated and had to turn on Bob the Builder for our toddler. In Bobville I would have talking tools to assist me, but in Casa de Mojo it took us two episodes of Bob the Builder, about 22 minutes to do the job.

Any day now hell start rice cereal. Ive never eaten rice cereal that I can remember, but it sounds tasteless and weird.
I like rice and I like cereal. Rice cereal sounds like a food that somehow got shipwrecked on the Island of Lost Toys. Its two words that separately are good, but together is like a marriage to J-Lo. Cheese cake is like that too.

With digital being the preferred format, I had gotten used to hearing good singles; and then being disappointed when the complete releases come out. The new Van Halen, A Different Kind of Truth is the opposite. All of the apprehension and minor disappointment I had with the single were counter balanced with how good the entire release is.

In 2010 alone there were close to 219,000 plastic surgeries performed on people between the age of 13 and 19, according the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Some of these were treating acne and scars left by acne on teenagers, while the most common was otoplasty or ear surgery, as ears are fully developed in young childhood.

The plot is a big giveaway that this is not your ordinary Hollywood action movie. If the movie were coming from Hollywood the villains would still be Nazis and the hero would realize that were all citizens of the world. The acting was a bit stilted at times, but it was all very real, sometimes feeling like a film class. Did it just seem stilted to me because the lines were being said pretty people? Act of War isnt a character driven movie with lots of dialogue, its action oriented [..]

Its great to be recognized. Dads are often un represented in advertising and television. If a dad is represented all too often hes uncaring, aloof or flat out stupid. Real life stay at home dads are guilty of playing into this stereotype too. Sometimes an over the top representation of a dad is funny, sometimes [...]

I dont want to believe that a parent wouldnt love their child just because theyre gay.
When I was a teen my mother questioned my sexual orientation once. It was 1984 and I wanted to get a Swatch.
"If you get that Swatch then the kids will think you're gay", she said.
Had I been a quippy young lad I would've said "Mom, have you seen the Miami Vice pastel jacket I'm wearing to the prom? THAT'S gay, the Swatch is just a cheap, trendy timepiece."
I also dont want to believe th [..]

The scenery in Arrietty is lush, 3-D and a central character in the movie. At times the background seems to breathe and move on its own, alternating between something that looks like a real picture to one thats partially animated.
If the scenery and background in Anime is lush and detailed the people are round, stilted and took some getting used to. The contrast between the detailed background and the characters that were overly simplified did not prove to be distracting. If anything it [..]

Our two and a half year old goes to pre-school 2 days a week. Sometimes when I pick him up Ill arrive 10 minutes early so I can watch him play with the other kids. It brings a smile to your face to watch your child play when they dont know that youre watching them. I used to do the same thing when our dogs would go to doggie daycare. With children its easier to do because they all of them dont rush the fences, plus their sense of smell isnt as good as dogs.
