Best Birthday Ever at Music Stars and Masters

Published on July 7, 2014

Share

I walked past Music Stars and Masters in the Westside Pavillion Mall many times and wondered “What happens in there?”. Well, let me tell you, I am SO glad I finally stopped one day to ask! Critter’s birthday was fast approaching and I didn’t have any plan yet, and of course there’s the added self [...]


The REAL New Year has started, finally…

Published on January 22, 2014

I can’t ever get my act together in the New Year until I get through the PBS Winter Press Tour, which, for me is a biannual week of joining my fellow PBS Kids VIPs together with the Television Critics Association to review the new season’s offerings from PBS. Yesterday I hugged Abby Cadaby, Count von [...]

Thank you all for all your kindnesses, comforting comments and private messages with regard to my last post.

I am still swooning from all the creative inspiration that I found this year at the PBS Annual Meeting. The PBS Kids VIPS were guests of PBS so that we might bring our readers more information on new AND tried and true programming on our favorite station!

I had SO much fun planning the Critter’s birthday this year! I had the good fortune to arrange that the Story Pirates would perform at the party, and can honestly say that I have never been so excited to share something fun and new with our friends and family.
I first saw the Story [...]


Jenni Pulos, Multitasking Mommy-to-Be raps Koala Kid, K-I-D!!!

Published on April 28, 2013

Usually I am so exhausted from getting to all our activities that the Critter and I just hang at home on Fridays, but I could not resist an afternoon at the zoo for a screening of Koala Kid – a soon to be released animated feature on DVD, and HUGE deal: to be able to [...]

I’ve always wondered what the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books would be like and am so excited to finally see! I will no doubt go crazy trying to take in all the literature and programming, including visiting our friends at the HUB Network for a special screening a new episode of The Littlest Pet [...]


Hopping into Spring Break

Published on April 9, 2013

Share

As y’all know, I LOVE holidays, and Easter is my favorite – I think it’s the colors and all the cuteness. This year was a real milestone for us, as we have now started attending a church that we really like. We decided to make this shift from non practicing to practicing Christian behavior because [...]

Before I post about the awesome Easter and Spring Break we’ve been having, I HAD to share these photos that have been waiting to be seen. I am so fortunate (and grateful!) to live in a place that has SO much to do. The captions tell the story…


Sid the Science Kid premiere – Hooky in Hollywood

Published on March 23, 2013

While it certainly would have been a worthwhile event for the Critter to play hooky and skip school, we had the good fortune that his school had what is mysteriously referred to as a “Pupil Free Day”, so no such infractions had to be committed. It was a great morning in Hollywood for a premiere, [...]
