It's gonna be Mei! When I first saw the trailer for Pixar's Turning Red and heard "It's Gonna be Me" playing in the background I was sold. I've been looking forward to this film ever since and now I am happy to report that it is available as of TODAY on Disney+. I know this is a bummer for some, because originally Turning Red was going to get a theatrical release, but on a personal note, since I have young kids being able to stream a brand new film, at home, at no extra cost (other than our monthly bill for the streaming service) is nice. But is Turning Red OK for young kids? I'm sharing my thoughts on the PG rating, the language and the overall vibe of the film - without spoilers of course, in my parent review.
MomLife confession: I rarely eat lunch and when I do it is usually my kids' leftovers of half-eaten sandwiches. I have no trouble getting my kids lunch but when it comes to me it just seems like too much effort! Splendid Spoon makes lunch easy with their microwaveable soups and grain bowls, they also offer juices and smoothies for those busy mornings of rushing the kids off to school. Recently I tried some of Splendid Spoon's Immunity-Boosting offerings and now I'm ranking the ones I've tried and sharing what I loved, what I liked and what I wouldn't want to get again.
Never give up. That's the theme of American Underdog, the amazing and inspiring true story of how Kurt Warner went from not being drafted out of college, to winning a Super Bowl with the St. Louis Rams. I should have known that this movie coming to Digital around the same time as the Super Bowl (featuring the now, LA Rams) that it was a bad omen for the Cincinnati Bengals, but I digress. American Underdog is about football, but is it a football movie? Will your sports-loving kids enjoy it? I'm breaking down the plot, the PG rating and sharing my overall thoughts in my no-spoilers review of American Underdog.

Every once in a while a movie comes along that is so raw and real it stays with you for days. A Mouthful of Air is one of those films. I could not shake the uneasiness I felt after viewing this film. It really brings to light a struggle so many women (mostly silently) have those first few weeks after having a baby. Wanting to appear on the surface that they've got it all together while inside they're drowning. In conjunction with the film's at-home release I was invited to attend a virtual town hall to discuss postpartum depression and anxiety, along with my review I am also including a few tidbits from our discussion as well.
