4) Get rid of both of our cars neither of which is in very good condition and replace them.

NBC Studio Tour and The Commedia Cinderella

We were given a free NBC Studio Tour for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience.
Me - The NBC Studio Tour was so much fun.We followed the tour guides all around, and they told us interesting facts and showed us things. I liked how we got to see the sets of some of the talk shows and Saturday Night Live. We actually got to go on Seth Myers set and the Nightly News set. We didn't go to on the Saturday Night Live set but we got to look at it. I thought it was the biggest single room I've ever seen. I liked that we got to see the control rooms and things. That was cool. One of my favorite things was that we got to learn a lot of interesting facts. For instance, Seth Myers set is on a floating floor. They had to put in extra concrete between his floor and Jimmy Fallon's floor so they don't hear each other when they are taping. There were a lot of pictures of people who were on Saturday Night Live or are on Saturday Night Live now. There was one hall where on one side there were pictures of former Saturday Night Live actors and skits that had been performed on the show, and on the other there were pictures of  current Saturday Night Live actors and skits. We even got to make our own pretend talk show with the people on our tour and it was recorded for all of us and they sent it to us by e-mail. It was a very exciting and interesting tour.*

We were given free tickets to The Commedia Cinderella for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience.
Me- I liked The Commedia Cinderella. It was good. It was really funny. It's not like any Cinderella I have ever seen before. For one thing instead of the Fairy Godmother changing Cinderella into something beautiful she changed her into looking like a clown. Instead of glass slippers, she had clown shoes. Cinderella was not really princessy. She was tough and independent, but she still went for the prince. The stepsisters were really funny especially because they were played by guys. They acted like typical teenagers. They did stuff like try to outdo each other all the time and try to be better than each other. Also, they were gossipy. One of the funny parts was when the Fairy Godmother came in on roller skates to the song Xanadu. I liked that they kept bringing phrases from movies and other stories and bits of songs and other things into the show. It was hilarious, and I really recommend you see it.*

Where-To-Go Wednesday - NBC Studio Tour and The Commedia Cinderella

We were given a free NBC Studio Tour for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience.
What: NBC Studio Tour

Where: 30 Rockefeller Plaza
             New York, New York

Who: Tweens and up

Mom's view: If you want to walk the same hallways, as Matt Lauer and Jimmy Fallon and other NBC personalities, this tour is for you. Who knows, you may even run into one of them. Even if you don't this tour is both interesting and fun. Not only will you learn how NBC Nightly News is put together, but you will have a chance to visit the set. You will also visit one or more of the sets of the NBC Talk shows that tape in New York including The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night With Seth Myers and/or the Saturday Night Live set. It depends which shows are taping at the time of your tour as you will only be visiting the sets of shows that are not taping at the time of your visit. You will also learn interesting facts about NBC and its history. You will even get to put together a mock talk show along with your fellow tour guests which will be recorded and e-mailed to you. You won't need your camera because you are not allowed to take any pictures on the tour. You will need comfortable shows as you will be doing a lot of walking. This is not a good tour for young children as for the most part it is not very interactive and it does involve a lot of walking and a lot of listening to information. The information is interesting for adults and older children but not so much for little kids. Tweens and teens would probably enjoy the tour especially the last part when you get to make the mock talk show particularly if they are interested in going into television journalism some day.

We were given free tickets to the Commedia Cinderella for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience.
What: The Commedia Cinderella

Where: Soho Playhouse
             15 Vandam St.
             New York, NY

When: July 16, 2016

Who: All ages
Mom's view: If you think fairy tales are too sappy, you have never seen The Commedia Cinderella currently playing at the Soho Playhouse in New York City. This show, full of references to other shows as well as movies, other stories and famous quotes, is definitely not just for children. It may be possibly be the funniest version of Cinderella every presented on stage. It is like one of those old cartoons where the story is enjoyable for young children, but a lot of the jokes go right over their heads and are meant for adults and/or older children. While the basic story is the same, Cinderella is a slave to her stepmother and stepsisters, her fairy Godmother casts a spell on her and sends her off to the ball to meet the Prince, the Prince falls in love with Cinderella and tracks her down by her lost shoe; this Cinderella is not like any other you have ever seen. Because of that young girls who are particularly fanatic about the Disney version might not enjoy the show. However. if you like your heroines with a little more spunk, and you want to see a Cinderella who is not just meekly sitting around wishing for her prince to come, but is active, feisty and has a mind of her own than you will love this show.  This Cinderella is a much better much more modern role model for young girls than has been presented in previous versions of the story. However, even if you are not looking for a role model for your daughter even if you don't even have a daughter, it's just a really fun show, and a greatly entertaining way to spend an hour or two.
And that's Mom's view. Tune in to tomorrow's Talking Topics post for Aurella's view of the NBC Studio Tour and The Commedia Cinderella.

Tips for Tuesday: Books: Charlotte's Web and Kids Are Turds Brutally Honest Humor for the Pooped-Out Parent

This post my contain affilate links. If you click on a link and make a purchase, we may be compensated.
Me - Today I am recommending Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. I really liked Charlotte's Web. It's about pig named Wilbur and his best friend, Charlotte the spider. When Charlotte first becomes friend with Wilbur she promises to save his life so that he doesn't become ham and/or bacon. The book has a nice story. I like the characters too. My favorite characters are Charlotte, Wilbur, a goose that repeats everything three times and Fern the little girl who owns Wilbur. This classic is a great book that I'd really recommend reading if you haven't already.
Mom - Today I am recommending Kids Are Turds Brutally Honest Humor for the Pooped-Out Parent by Jenny Schoberl. At times hilarious at times touching, Jenny Schoberl's book really capture the essence of what it is to be a parent. What parent can't relate to using the kids as an excuse to get out of social engagement or the art of  loving gifts just because they are from your child? With short quick chapters, this book is a great read even for the parent who doesn't have a lot of time to read. Just be aware that Ms. Schoberl's language is very frank and she doesn't shy away from cursing and vulgarity (as is evidenced by the use of the term "turd" in the title) so if that sort of thing bothers you, you may want skip this book. However, if you do you'll be missing out on a very funny read.

And that's our view. For a chance to win a copy of Kids Are Turds Brutally Honest Humor for the Pooped-Out Parent see this post:Giveaway: Win Two Humorous Parenting Books!

Monthly, Mash-up April, 2016

Me - My topic for this month is my guinea pig, Maisy. She is so tiny and cute. She squeaks so loud that I can't imagine that such a tiny thing has such a loud squeak. I keep all her stuff in my closet but she doesn't have that much. Every day, I check her cage to make sure she has food, water, and hay. Unfortunately, she has a tiny water bottle, and she likes to drink a lot so I have to fill it about a million times a day. I love to play with her. One thing that I love about her is that if I put her on my bed right away she'll walk over to me and curl up in my lap. Once every week, I clean out her cage by taking everything out, throwing out all the bedding and stuff, and then putting in new bedding and putting all her stuff back. Sometimes, she likes to flip her house over. Instead of going in through the door of her house sometimes she likes to crawl under the back. It is funny when she does that! Guinea pigs are really fun pets.

Mom - My topic for this month is comfortable shoes. I love shoes. I have many many pairs of them. However, the problem is I do not have one pair of shoes that stays comfortable for a long period of time, and that includes sneakers. Since I do a lot walking especially because of all the places we go to review for the blog, I would really like to have at least one really comfortable pair of walking shoes. I think part of the problem is that feet are not really the same size. One is always a little bigger than the other. If one shoe fits comfortably the other is too big. If the other shoe fits comfortably the other is too tight. I also wear flat shoes a lot which I don't think is really good for my feet. Plus, I have a bump on the back of my larger foot which has a tendency to rub against my shoes and become uncomfortable even if I am wearing socks. The most comfortable shoes I own are two pairs of Skechers. They are the same kind of shoe in different colors. The bottoms are super comfortable and the back is high but soft so they don't even bother the back of my foot too much. They problem is the pattern on the top of shoe presses really hard into my foot so after a while these shoes hurt too. And so, the search continues.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.
