boots for babies?? [Dec. 5th, 2008|12:51 pm]
Parental Playground

Have any of you bought your babies winter boots? If so, where did you find them?? I want to get Madeleine some winter boots but I can't find any in her size! How is it that they have winter coats, snowsuits, and mittens in 12 month size but no winter boots in that size?? What is she supposed to wear on her feet if she plays in the snow? We need something that will keep her feet warm AND keep out the snow/water.

So I got to thinking (because of someone else's silliness post... yes daisy4u from you)

What is your most favorite silly thing you love to do with your kids?
My most favorite thing we did yesterday...

we turned on some music, preferably something pop-ish or kid-ish ("Please don't stop the music!") and dance like crazy all over the place!  (plus it is how I can sneak in a little exersize, god knows I need it.)

please let me know what you do to be silly with your kids.

MTV True Life is now casting for "I'm Having Twins" [Aug. 27th, 2008|01:53 pm]
Parental Playground

Hi there,
I hope you don't mind my posting in this community, but I work for MTV True Life in New York and am working on research and casting for a new round of episodes, one of which is called, "I'm Having Twins". I'm trying to get the word out about our show to as many potentially interested individuals as possible. We're looking for young women who are pregnant with multiples and would want to tell their story on True Life. I've pasted our casting call below, and anyone who's interested can contact me directly at the included email address. Or, if you know someone you think might be interested, feel free to pass the info along to them. Thank you so much, and have a great day!


Are you pregnant… with twins, triplets, or even more? Were you previously unable to conceive, but with the help of fertility drugs, now expecting multiple babies? Are you concerned about the financial, physical, and emotional toll of taking care of more than one newborn, or the possibility of complications during pregnancy or birth? Is this your first pregnancy, and perhaps an unexpected one? Were you looking forward to an active lifestyle or career that you are now going to have to put on hold? Or is this the first step in creating the big family you’ve always wanted? Have you always wanted twins, and now your dream is coming true? If you’re pregnant with multiples, MTV wants to hear from you.


If you appear to be between the ages of 17 and 28 and identify with any of the above, MTV wants to hear your story. Email us at twins@mtvn.com. Please be sure to include your name, location, phone number, and a recent photo.

We need your help coming up with a good unique name for our scrapbook forum. Right now it's called scrappers haven but that isn't too unique. Once we collect some good name we will start a poll and have the names voted on. The winner will receive a scrapbook goody bag.

Stop by and check out the scrapbook forum. Contests, challenges and swaps will be starting soon!
