Since becoming a mom my trips to the movie theater have dwindled, significantly. Gone are the days where I see a preview for a movie I'm interested in and then go see it opening weekend. Now I try and remember commercials I see for films I want to watch once they are released for at home viewing. This is the case for Tom Hanks' latest film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. I was enchanted by Hanks' portrayal of Fred Rogers in the commercials and trailers and that's why I'm so excited to share that A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood will be available on digital on February 4th and 4K Ultra, Blu-ray and DVD on February 18th. This family film is rated PG and will be a bit old for my toddler but I know one thing she'll be interested in seeing, the bonus material featurette, Daniel Tiger Explains: Practice Makes Perfect.
Confession: I have not seen Frozen 2. I know, I know, bad Disney mom, bad Disney princess fanatic and just bad Disney fan all around. With two under the age of three, getting to the movies is in a word, TOUGH. We can't even finish a movie at home by the "running time" listed on the back of the cover after the kids go to bed. This is not to suggest in any way that I haven't been excited about Frozen 2 because I have been and I've been waiting to hear when Frozen 2 would be available on Blu-ray and I am happy to share Frozen 2 arrives home digitally on February 11th and on Blu-ray February 25th!
Did you know if you want your child to join a preschool in September you need to be on the phone and registering that January (or sooner)? Let me tell you, I did NOT know that and discovering preschools in my area were on waitlists for the school year starting in EIGHT MONTHS was quite shocking. Having worked at a daycare that also housed preschool classes I knew what I was looking for but I had no idea I was behind on looking. If you are not behind on looking but aren't sure what you're looking for, I have a list of questions you should ask on your next tour broken down into three different topics.
I grew up going to Disney. We went almost every other year and once I hit adulthood my trips tapered off (much to my chagrin). So I love consuming all things Disney via social media, watching movies and TV shows, collectors items, and purchasing gifts for (myself) my kids. I kept seeing social ads for something called Walt Life. An unofficial subscription box services that delivers Disney magic right to your door.
"and at last I see the light".. Recently my second born daughter turned one. I cannot believe it. Where did her first year go? There were times in the beginning when it felt like a slow crawl of days dragging on and up-all-nights but the year really did speed by in retrospect. Now as a mother to 2 under the age of 3, I have gained experience in a lot of areas, one of them being party planning.
