My Knight in Cardboard Armor – Belle’s Enchanted Tales at Walt Disney World New Fantasyland

knight in shining armor

You’d think after waiting in line for Belle’s Enchanted Tales at the New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World my girls would have been upset that they weren’t picked to be in the story.  But, they were more excited that my husband was.  And he kept that castle safe!

Sometimes a Picture Really Does Say it All

I wish we had a real Parents Association office so I could hang this on the wall:

Once Princess Leia, Always Princess Leia

Wordless Wednesday was never this geeky.  I know.  When my husband saw this he said, “Truly there are no words.”  Actually, he said, ” That is the geekiest thing I’ve ever seen.”   I’m OK with that.  I spent all of kindergarten with my hair in two side buns.  I saw Star Wars 26 times in the summer of 1977 – and the first time it was with my dad in Times Square at the old Astor Plaza Theater. I was 5.

And so yesterday when I was at the holiday showcase event for Xbox360 Kinect and R2D2 was there – for real people – I could not resist taking advantage of having a hooded sweater coat with me and posing like this.  What you can’t tell from the picture is that when I did that the prerecorded message of Princess Leia saying, “Help me Obi-Wan you’re my only hope,” played from deep inside that lovable droid.  Now I don’t feel so bad that I missed all the fun at Comic Con last week.

Thank you GayNycDad for taking the pic!!

KidzVuz 2.0 A Site is (re) Born

Consider this a sonogram of sorts.  A sneak peek at what is about to launch on to the web on Monday, October 3rd.  You can see our current version of KidzVuz now.  But, here’s a Wordless Wednesday of what’s about to launch.

KidzVuz is a site exclusively for kids ages 7-12 where they can create reviews about tech, toys, books, movies and with the new site – travel, food, pets and sports.  So, basically everything a kid would ever want to talk about.  It’s anonymous – user names only – safe and completely moderated.  Also, IT’S REALLY COOL!!!

So get ready for the big launch on Monday and join us for our Twitter launch party on October 5th at 10pm where we will be hosting awesome giveaways and talking about kids using technology to get creative.  Let’s empower our kids through tech, rather than scaring them!

Who You Callin’ a Rust Belt? A Michigan Wordless Wednesday

These were all taken on a walk through my in-laws garden.

Wordless Wednesday: It’s Not an Episode of Hoarders…

It’s everything we own piled into one room so our renovation can begin.  Pretty scary.

Film Set on my Doorstep

Walked outside my door and saw this parked on the street.  Plus an entire street of classic 60s cars.  Don’t know what they were filming but it’s the perfect reminder that you never know what you’re going to bump into in NYC.  Plus, I wish they’d bring back the checker cab.
