  • Life as We Know It Review

    Earlier this week NerdDad and I had a little at home date night! We fed the kids an easy dinner of Kid Cuisine and stopped by the Redbox to pick up a light romantic comedy.

    Life as We Know It’s commercials looked really cute and funny. The set up was that 2 single people who had mutual friends (but weren’t friends themselves) inherited said friends’ baby to raise together. With our 4 kids, we can always relate to baby comedy and enjoy it greatly!

    Overall we thought this was a cute, good movie. As usual, there were high points and low points of this movie. Let’s look at the good first. It was a cute movie with a very cute baby!  The interactions where actually new, unique and funny. For example, that baby had food issues as do most of them. Baby food is gross and you never know which a kid will like. So Josh Duhamel goes baby food shopping. He was opening jars and letting the baby smell them. If she liked them, he put it in the cart and other wise it went back on the shelf. Of course that makes any parent laugh. What shocked me was when NerdDad exclaimed, “That is the smartest man I have ever met!”

    We all have to be honest. This isn’t truly an original story and I think that was a down side overall to the movie. So while you felt good when the movie was over, you felt you have experienced it before. You definitely know where the story line before the writers reveal it. So if you are looking for innovative, it may not be for you.

    Overall it was was a really sweet and funny romantic comedy! If you are looking for a relaxed and fun movie pick Life as We Know It!

    Frugal Homeschooler: Free Educational Dvd’s

    Sometimes homeschooling frugally just means keeping your ear to the ground. Opportunities can just crop up that you need to seize! I stumbled across some educational dvds on some of my homeschool yahoo groups and thought I would share!

    Nasa and the American Museum of Natural History are offering a free dvd and educator’s guide! It is called Journey to the Stars and they say it is available for both teachers and parents. As a homeschooler I am filing as a teacher.
    The History Channel has a new series called America: the Story of Us going right now. I know many people who are dvr’ing it but don’t bother (unless you want to see it now;). They are offering it on a free dvd! You have to request it before July 1, 2010 and they won’t send it until August.
    For both of them you just fill out a form!

    Abe and the Amazing Promise

    Right now my kids are loving my blogs. That is because I got a chance to review the not yet released Veggie Tales: Abe & the Amazing Promise! Here in the NerdFamily we are huge VeggieTale fans. So you can imagine our delight when we popped this in the dvd. The main story is a lesson on patience that is about Sarah and Abraham having to patiently wait for the arrival of baby Isaac (it doesn’t touch on Ishmael or Hagar at all). It is a cute retelling that stars radio personality Delilah.
    My 7 year old’s favorite part was the silly song Sneeze If You Want To! It was completely adorable. The part I absolutely loved was the musical Blunders in Boo-boo-ville about how fast isn’t always best.

    If you love VeggieTales you have to check out Veggie Tales: Abe & the Amazing Promise! It comes out Fed 10th on Amazon but you can preorder it today!

    Flight of the Conchords: the First Season

    NerdDad and I have been watching Flight of the Conchords – The Complete First Season and I have to say that I love it. Going into it I already knew that I really found their music funny but I was prepared to dislike the series. I was afraid it would just be very foul and stupid but surprisingly it wasn’t! It was silly but it was also very witty and just hilarious. I have a feeling that we will be seeing this again and will be waiting to see the second season when it comes out.
