Travels with My Father – Netflix Review

I’ve been crushing on a Netflix originals show and telling everyone IRL to watch. It’s got bad language, and it is completely inappropriate at times, (okay, a lot of the time) and that typically would make it flag it as “not suitable” for MommyUpgrade, but -- I’m...

Movie Review: A Wrinkle In Time

Usually when a movie sticks with me, it’s because I really liked it. I wish I could say that about Disney’s Wrinkle in Time (see official trailer below) but I really didn’t like it. I mean, the costumes, yes. Interesting. Make-up, meh. Kinda cool I guess? I mean, it...

Can my 6 year old see Maleficent?

Like many parents who have been intrigued by the Maleficent trailers, I couldn't wait to see the summer blockbuster from Disney. Even the hubs wanted to see it and I’m sure Angelina Jolie had nothing to do with his interest in the movie. 🙂 But there was one member of...

Sprout Network’s New Original Programming

I don’t know when it’s going to happen, but one day I’m going to be able to use the potty without my entourage of 6 year olds: two pugs and one child. (Lest we forget my pseudo-6 year old hubs who thinks it’s hilarious to bang on the door as soon as I sit down.) Until...

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3 Review

“Mommy, what are ChiLAwas? “ “They’re dogs.” “No they aren’t. “ You have to forgive the 4 year old Princess Cupcake -- we have pugs. And truthfully, I don’t think she believes they are dogs either. They’re known to her as “Beni and BeauBeau,” short for Mon Peitie...
