MOTHERHOOD DVD Review and Giveaway- 2 winners

Photobucket
As you all know, I love to watch movies. Some of my favorites are ones that I can relate to. I think they should make more movies about being a mom. There are some great ones but I have a new one to throw in the mix. It’s called MOTHERHOOD. Raising kids is never easy. Eliza Welsh (Uma Thurman), a stay-at-home mom of two, finds this out first hand on a seemingly endless day when she must plan her daughter’s birthday party, deal with her scatterbrained husband (Anthony Edwards), saver her car from being towed, and write an essay for a parenting magazine before the approaching dead line. That’s motherhood.

Eliza Welch (Thurman) is a former fiction writer-turned-mom-blogger with her own site, “The Bjorn Identity”. Putting her deeper creative ambitions on hold to raise her two children, Eliza lives and works in two rent-stabilized apartments in a walk-up tenement building smack in the middle of an otherwise upscale Greenwich Village. Eliza’s good-natured but absent-minded husband (Edwards) seems tuned out to his wife’s conflicts, not to mention basic domestic reality, while her best friend Sheila (Minnie Driver) understands this – and Eliza -- all too well.

I thought MOTHERHOOD was hilarious. I couldn’t stop laughing. I could totally relate to some of the things that Eliza goes through. I am sure most moms can relate to this movie and would highly enjoy it. It would be a great movie to watch with your other mom friends on a Girl’s Night Out. You could swap your own motherhood stories. I know I have some doozies.

I will share one of them with you guys. My cousin was visiting with her kids when Noah was about 4 months old and he had a dirty diaper. I went to go change it and I noticed that he wasn’t quite finished going to the bathroom so, I closed up his diaper and waited for him to finish. After I changed him, I came back out with Noah to spend some more time with my family. I was sitting there and I ran my finger through my hair, which is something I do often and noticed I had something in my hair, I thought it was spit up. I was wrong. I had Noah’s poop in my hair. My cousin’s kids thought it was hilarious. They even called their dad and told him about it. I’m telling you Motherhood is definitely not easy!

  1. Hi Sheila! Well I don't know if this story counts but here it goes. My mother had my sister when I was 13. So basically when she was able to walk I took her everywhere with me. One day we were out and a lady came up to us and said "You have a beatiful daughter". I go "Thanks, but she isn't my daughter she is my sister." Then the lady says "Well, your mother must have had you two far apart." Duh...I was 15 at the time. We went home and laughed and told my mother. :)

  4. My funniest mom story is the day I found out I was pregnant with my fourth. It was a complete surprise/shock, as just 2 weeks earlier, I had sold all my baby things at a yard sale. LOL

  7. I can't claim this as happening to ME, but it happened to a husband of a good friend of mine...and it's hilarious (I think anyway)!
    Her son was going through a teething phase and was keeping them up all hours of the night--for about a week at the time. Her husband arose, groggy, rushing around for work. He accidentally grabbed the tube of diaper rash cream instead of toothpaste. It wasn't until mid-brush that he tasted something amiss and realized the error. UCK!

  14. When my daughter was an infant, my husband was in charge of watching her while I ran some errands. Imagine my shock when I returned to find them both sleeping on the couch and my daughter using my husband's nose as a pacifier. Needless to say, he had to walk around for several days with a hickey on his nose!

  15. This wasn't funny at the time, but my newborn son had a diaper blowout while we were stranded at Firestone waiting for our car to be worked on. I had to change his diaper and clothes in the yucky bathroom floor. I put like 20 paper towels on the floor because I naturally forgot the diaper changing mat in the car that was now suspended in the air. After cleaning him up, he also became hundry and we had our first nursing in public experience in front of several male car mechanics. I know look back at this and laugh & think I did a pretty good job that day;)

  16. I don't have a really specific one yet. The funniest thing that's happen is my daughter threw up all down the front of my shirt at the mall. Needless to say, I bought a new shirt.

  17. The little one had a new friend over to the house for the first time. He could not find me; I was using the washroom. Nevertheless, they opened the door and was introduced with, "That's my Dad." Thankfully, I was seated.

  18. We were at a restaurant and the waitress was asking what we all wanted to drink. When it was my turn my daughter interrupted and told the waitress, "My mama only drinks at night." You should have seen the look on her face. I mostly drink at night (iced tea and juice) because all my kids are always snatching my drinks all day long. She didn't know that though LOL.

  19. I know I have a ton of funny stories but the only one coming to mind is one of those situations where my husband hoisted my son up over his head and my son proceeded to spit up right in my husband's mouth. Gross but yet funny!

  25. When my daughter was 5, she was playing in a peewee soccer league. I was standing at the fence with a group of parents watching a game one Saturday morning. Right in the middle of the game, she ran up to the fence and said, "Mama, I think I forgot to put on my panties this morning!" I said, "Well, we can't do anything about it now so go play soccer." We parents were laughing to the point of tears.

  29. My children were always early birds and I have a hard time getting up in the morning. One evening I had been painting the hallway and left the paint cans on a table with the lids well sealed. The next morning when I got up I found that my 3 boys had decided to paint their bedroom. It had wood grain paneling that I had to cover because their painting only went up 3 feet.

  30. It is always fun when you have to take a little one with you in the bathroom stall. But remember kids have no tact. At all. My daughter who was about 3 and she made a few comments about my BM. "Are you going poo poo?" "Are you done poo-pooing yet?" "It stinks bad!" etc. etc. Kids are too funny!

  31. We were at a Math Bee where my middle son Scott was participating, my youngest son Danny was with me, I had let go of us hand for a second to cheer on Scott, when I looked down at Danny, he had grabbed on to the lady next to me, holding her hand, she was laughing and we watched for a few minutes, Danny was shocked when he looked up and noticed he had the wrong mom.
