It’s Been Over A Week & I’m STILL Waiting to See ‘The Greatest Showman’ AGAIN! | Movie Review

  The Greatest Showman (20th Century Fox)

I feel like as a mom, I find myself completely oblivious when it comes to things that aren’t Disney, Youtube or toy related. So when James told me he wanted to see The Greatest Showman first of all, I had no idea what the eff he was talking about. And admittedly even after watching the trailer I was still confused like ehhhhh a movie about the circus?? I guess…. *scratches head*

I’m pretty sure a good amount of time passed between the initial conversation we had about the movie and last weekend when we finally got to go out sans children. So when I excitedly asked what movie we should see and this was the option again, I was confused LOL. I check some reviews and got even more skeptical because if you read the reviews before seeing this movie they are SOOOOO mixed. But, I’m definitely an optimist and now I was even more curious about the movie, so I was interested to see how my few childless hours were about to play out.

I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone that PT Barnum was a pretty horrible man. So if your’e going into the movie looking for an accurate depiction of his character and historical events, don’t bother. The movie itself is LOOSELY based on Barnum’s idea of the circus and focuses strongly on the ideas of acceptance, following your dreams and unapologetically being yourself (‘This is Me’). Nothing in the entire hour and 45 minutes was shocking or unpredictable but I still was entertained throughout the entire movie. And if you’re a music lover?!?! Let’s just say RJ didnt go with us to the movies but he can probably sing the entire soundtrack in order. The songs were amazing!

I dont remember the last time I left a movie and felt THAT excited. If you go into the movie looking to be entertained you definitely will not leave disappointed. And I don’t know if it’s just me getting older, but I definitely feel more emotion when I watch TV/movies now. There were points of the movie were I felt happy, sad, disappointed, angry, romanced and the emotions just never stopped. The casting, acting, music were just ALL on point and I am literally ready to go back to the movies and see this movie a time or two more. If anyone wants to watch my kids for me, you can find me there! 

Have you seen The Greatest Showman? Are you skeptical because of PT Barnum’s History? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! xoxo

The Beginner’s Guide to A Wrinkle in Time | In Theaters Everywhere March 9th 2018

If you follow me on social media (and if you don’t then, why don’t you?) then you know I’m pretty much all Wrinkle, all the time. HA! From the moment the announcement was made to the trailer being dropped I’ve been hype and I don’t think a day goes by that I’m not reminding y’all. In my first post about the movie, I said everyone should be excited because it was all our elementary school dreams coming true but it was brought to my attention via Facebook that there are actually people who have no idea what a Wrinkle in Time is about *gasp* … Let me drop the trailer for you one more time before I get into it.

Meg Murry is a typical middle school student struggling with issues of self – worth who just wants to fit in. The daughter of two world-renowned physicists , she is intelligent and uniquely gifted, as is Meg’s younger brother, Charles Wallace, but she has yet to realize it for herself. Complicating matters is the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Murry, which has left Meg devastated and her mother broken-hearted . Charles Wallace introduces Meg and her fellow classmate Calvin to three celestial beings (Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who) who have journeyed to Earth to help search for their father, and together they embark on their formidable quest. Travelling via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering, they are transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil force. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must face the darkness within herself in order to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness rapidly enveloping the Universe. 

So what exactly IS “A Wrinkle in Time”?

A Wrinkle in Time is the story of Meg Murry, a high-school-aged girl who is transported on an adventure through time and space via the act of tessering with her younger brother Charles Wallace and friend Calvin O’Keefe to rescue her father, a gifted scientist, from the evil forces that hold him prisoner on another planet.


Time/Space travel is a major theme in A Wrinkle in Time and the kids are able to “tesser” through time and space with the help of the Mrs. Ws. Tessering is essentially defined by Mrs. Whatsit in the novel as a mode of travel that uses the shortest route. She illustrates it by having Mrs. Who fold her skirt and allowing a bug to travel across the wrinkle providing a short commute. A complex concept, this is the easiest way that the Mrs. Ws are able to define this to Meg.

Who/what are the Mrs. Ws?

Described as “celestial beings”, the Mrs. Ws help the children on their quest to find Mr Murry and save him from the evil force holding him captive on another planet. Though all once novas or supernovas, they have distinct characteristics that set them apart.

James Earl Jones Returns as Mufasa in Disney’s 2019 Live Action Remake of #TheLionKing

Word spread like WILDFIRE after Beyonce confirmed on Wednesday that a Lion King remake was indeed happening and she would star as Nala in the 2019 film. Of course they BeyHive went crazy and Childish fans everywhere are HYPE to see Donald Glover star as Simba.

But can we take a minute to appreciate the legend James Earl Jones? Jones will be reprising his role from the 1994 animated film as Simba’s father, Mufasa. How freaking dope is that?!?! As big Disney Junior fans in here we watch The Lion Guard daily and its always too different for me to hear Mufasa in someone else’s voice. I couldn’t imagine my kids growing up, seeing this new movie (RJ will be almost 5 when it comes out!) and knowing Mufasa’s voice as someone else. I am super super excited about this and LOVED that he is returning to his role. I can’t wait to see how Jon Favreau (director of “The Jungle Book,” Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man”) plays this out. 

The Lion King roars into theaters everywhere on July 19th 2019! 

How are you feeling about a live action remake of the Lion King? Here for it? Let me know in the comments. xoxo

Serena Williams Forgets the 1st Commandment of The Internet – Thou Shalt Watch What You Say or Be Druggeth for Filth!


In an interview with Australian magazine Stellar, Serena is quoted about her feelings on giving birth saying, “I am about to be a real woman now, you know? It’s going to be something incredibly impressive to go through”. 

Baaaaaaybeh! Fans and haters alike are BIG MAD at that quote. While I don’t think Williams was necessarily trying to take away anything from women who don’t give birth whether by choice or not, she forgot the golden rule of being in the spotlight, choose your words carefully! Nonetheless Williams had a fun-filled weekend celebrating “Baby O” and I’m sure the impending arrival of baby makes it so much easier for the champion to brush off the negativity.

[SWIPE LEFT] #MommyMondays- #SerenaWilliams and her baby, slaying.

The Emergency Plan – Same Sex Couple in Doc McStuffins Episode Causes “Controversy”

  Image via Screenshot

Image via Screenshot

Over the weekend an episode of Doc McStuffins entitled “The Emergency Plan” aired featuring a doll family that consisted of two moms and two children. In the episode, the doll couple (voiced by Wanda Sykes and Portia de Rossi) is separated by an Earthquake cause by one of the other toys in McStuffinsville because they do not have an emergency plan and concludes with them creating one after being reunited by Doc and her team.  

While many praised the episode for its inclusion and diversity we know, theres always one. Organization ‘One Million Moms‘ has their panties in a bunch over ‘The Emergency Plan’ accusing McStuffins creator Chris Nee (who is an out lesbian) of pushing “an agenda” and veering away from family friendly content. They even go so far as to urge other “conservative families” to write to Disney urging them not to air the episode with the ultimatum being Disney not being allowed in their homes for “fear” of seeing commercials, reruns or previews of the episode. Dramatic much? 

I can’t speak for anyone at Disney but I’m sure they’re paying One Million Moms no mind. Check out “The Emergency Plan” on Disney Junior or watch online here. As always, leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Breast is Best ….. For the Whole School Apparently!

You ever wonder if some people actually do the things they say or if they’re just doing it for Facebook fame or to go viral? That’s exactly how I felt when I saw the original posting on that mom posted to Facebook asking for advice after she did this:

SOOOOOO many questions here. But I wanna start by saying if you’re friends with me on Facebook then you know I’m not opposed to breastfeeding AT ALL. I go HARD for breastfeeding. But I just need to know why? Why did you this lady think it was ok to share the liquid from her body with her child’s WHOLE school? Are there no corner stores where you live ma’am? Milk is sold EVERYWHERE! 

Why are you putting milk in your brownies to begin with? I don’t work at a bakery or anything but uhhhhhh It’s definitely not a required ingredient as someone pointed out to me when I shared the first post I saw. 

How do you know what kind of nutrients someone else’s child needs and who are you to make that decision for the parents with your boob juice?! And how did another mom “find out?”. Did she taste said breast milk when she purchased one of the lactating brownies? I just need answers. I’m sure at this point she’s glad that she was kept anonymous in her original post because some people would have given her an earful! I’m just gonna share some of the funnier responses to lighten the mood in case you’re just as annoyed/disgusted as I am. 

Sooooo, how are you feeling? I’m wiling to bet it’s not hungry LOL! Lemme know your thoughts in the comments!

Ciara Took Her Infant on a Toboggan and Social Media is BIG MAD as Usual

Seriously, can Ciara do ANYTHING without being attacked? CiCi shared a post of her family going down on the toboggan at the Great Wall of China and all the sancti-parents and Facebook trolls came out in full force to let her know just how bad of a mom she is:

APPARENTLY she is completely oblivious in the act of keeping her own child safe or making any decision about her own life for that matter *HARD eye roll*. Most of the comments were about Sienna but people were even upset she had Baby Future on the ride with her hubby. 

I’m gonna go with this person’s opinion….. 

Mind your business! That’s it. If you wouldn’t take your child on a toboggan then that’s amazing for you! It’s not YOUR child. But… as we see all the time in the media poor Ciara can’t do much without receiving heavy criticism. 

What do you think? Lemme know in the comments below!
