Introduce A New Generation To Dumbo! #Ad

    There are just certain films which stand out as being an important part of one's childhood because of the impact that they had. In my case, I can say that Dumbo has been one of those movies for me. It definitely was one of my favorites when I was a young girl and, aside from loving all of its characters, I've always been touched by the relationship between Dumbo and his mother. Now that I am a mom, this resonates with me even more.     As a result of these fond memories, I am so excited to announce that DUMBO, the grand live-action adventure from Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, which expanded on the beloved animated classic and sent spirits soaring, becomes available on June 25. An all new generation can fall in love with this heartfelt story when it swoops into homes on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD and Movies Anywhere, and physically on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD - with never-before-seen bonus features, deleted scenes, bloopers and more!     In “Dumbo,” struggling … [Read more...]

Netflix Is A Must-Have Travel Essential! #StreamTeam @Netflix #Ad

    Traveling during this special time of the year can sometimes lose its luster. After all, you haven't truly experienced travel stress until you attempt to do so with your children. Believe it or not, there are challenges involved in planning trips with kids of all ages. Luckily for me, I have a teen and a tween to bring that "interesting" element into any getaway that we plan.     The numbers don't lie, 23% of parents in the US say one of their main concerns when traveling is keeping their kids entertained.

    As a Working Mom, it's always a nightmare when I have had to plan for celebrating my sons' birthdays at school. I end up having nightmares of staying up all night baking enough cupcakes for every student in their classes and wake up in a cold sweat when I realize I miscalculated the amount of cupcakes in my dream.
