A Show for the Dads...

VH1s summer series "Dad Camp" takes the focus off moms-to-be for once, and puts it squarely on the shoulders of some dads-to-be who could stand to spend some time in erious parenting boot camp. VH1 describes the show:

Each couple at VH1 DAD CAMP has a major dilemma: she's pregnant... but he's not ready or willing to accept the duties of fatherhood. Dealing with guys who drink, smoke, and don't have jobs (but do have anger issues), VH1 Dad Camp takes on one of our nations greatest concerns. In June 2009, father of two Barack Obama issued a call to the nation's dads to "step up" and take responsibility...VH1, 3 Ball Productions, and Dr. Jeff Gardere have answered the call..

You can watch the whole series online!

Busy mom? No time for movies?

We know that motherhood is a full time job, often on top of another full time job. Many mom's can't find the time to have a cup of coffee, let alone sit down and watch an entire movie. If you fit that description, this is the site for you! Movie-a-Minute boils even the longest films down to their essential schtick. Take, for example, their recap of King Kong:

Robert Armstrong:
I have to put a dame in my movie.

(kills 47 villagers and Manhattan)

Robert Armstrong:
Dames. Nothing but trouble.


We love it! Whether or not you've seen the films, this site is worth your (limited) time.

The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms

Our post today is brought to you by Lorraine Regel, co-author of one of our absolute favorite new books for moms and moms-to-be.

Having a baby is easily the biggest lifestyle change I have experienced. It has been like entering a whole new world, without a map, guidebook or phrasebook. Luckily, after only a few weeks adrift in ‘Baby World’, I was lucky to find some fellow castaways and soon built up a lifesaving band of mommy friends. Chatting with this group I discovered a whole lot more truthful and helpful info than I did reading the typical baby book. The group was soon discussing the nitty-gritty about how difficult breastfeeding really is and how explosive baby poo can be; sharing tales of vaporised sex drives; admitting that it’s fairly common to pee your pants at this stage postpartum. Quite often it’s not an answer to a problem that brings relief, but simply knowing that what’s happening is normal; other moms have been there. It makes you feel a whole heap better to have a comrade and being able to laugh about your woes with other moms might just save your sanity.

So when fellow new mom Erica approached me suggesting we collaborate on a baby book, I immediately saw the chance to get these ‘no one told me’ topics out in the open. Why not make a practical, helpful and humorous survival guide covering the things no one else tells you?

The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms is a practical, visual and amusing book that is primarily a compilation of all the ‘I wish I had known’ comments from our mommy circles, bolstered with useful tips, expert advice and know-how. Through a humorous style and fun cartoon illustrations we hope to raise a smile from the reader even through the pain of chafed nipples; regardless of the fact that she can’t sit down except on a doughnut cushion; even when she hasn’t slept more than four hours in the last forty-eight.
The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms by Erica Wells and Lorraine Regel (John Wiley, Canada) spills the dark and dirty beans on what it’s really like to survive that first incredible year of motherhood - available now in book stores across Canada and soon to be released in the USA.

Great Blogs!

Need some more reading? Two more of our favorite mom blogs:

Katie's Nesting Spot
"Welcome to my own little online nesting spot! This is where I blog about my efforts to create a place of refuge and retreat for my family, where we can raise our daughter to be a happy, creative, and indpendent kiddo aka ER. I blog about our everyday life with a two and half year old, our attempts to cook at home more, crafting, learning, and homemaking."

The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms
"Once Erica gave birth to her two treasured children she decided to take a break from the corporate life and spend time writing about her wonderful experiences with her two little ones. She now enjoys the challenges of being a Mortgage Broker by day and published author by night. As the co-author and co-founder of The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms, Erica is passionate about motherhood and a champion for women’s growth and development in her local community, on the web and across all aspects of social media.

Lorraine doesn’t claim to be a parenting expert in any way, but she has one important credential: she admits to excelling at being a clueless new mom. Having recently worked her way through the trials and tribulations of the first year of motherhood, she describes it as easily the biggest upheaval of her life and knows first hand the importance of support, friendship and comradeship during this period."

And You Thought Your Cravings Were Weird...

In her field studies on the island of Pemba, which belongs to Tanzania, Young observed that it is mainly pregnant women who experience cravings for earth. "It’s like an addiction. There is even a word for it: vileo," she says.

So says this article from Der Spiegel, the German newspaper, on the fascinating worldwide phenomenon of pregnant women craving dirt. Compared to that, pickles and ice cream (even together!) doesn't seem so bad, huh?

Sex vs. Sleep -- Which Would You Pick?

Two awesome mom bloggers answer the question (posed by Desperate Housewives' Teri Hatcher!) about whether they'd rather have eight hours of great sex or eight hours of great sleep. Which would you pick? (And no, the sex cannot be with Brad Pitt, or Robert Pattinson, or whichever shirtless sparkly vampire star hangs around your dreams.)

Thank You For Being a Friend, Rue!

Sadly, Rue McClanahan (of "Golden Girls" fame) has passed away.

Superhero Mom-to-Be!

So we at Moody Mamas think that all moms should be considered superheroes, but this story about Kerryn Munro (5 months pregnant at the time) takes the cake! It's part Crocodile Hunter, part Wonder Woman! Here's the over to the link to see what this amazing mama did to save her husband:

Lawrence Munro was on an evening stroll with wife Kerryn and their dogs when the pair stopped to rest on some rocks, dipping their toes into a shallow part of the White Umfolzi river on a game reserve 125 miles north of Durban.

Moments later, the Nile crocodile launched its assault.
