Trust me, I wish more than anything that I was going to be attending San Diego Comic-Con this year. Unfortunately it falls at the same time as a really important family event, so I am going to have to miss it. The only thing that makes this OK for me is that I know Marvel is not going to be doing any panels there. It kind of makes it an OK year for me, as a huge Marvel fan, to miss. Although I know there will be some pretty amazing announcements from DC, Warner Bros, and so much more. But just let me think I won’t be missing anything. Please.
You might have noticed that my social media handles have been migrating away from Mama Smith’s and to Mama’s Geeky. That is because I have some pretty exciting news! Mama Smith’s will become Mama’s Geeky over the course of the next few days. Don’t worry, this won’t effect anything. I will still have the same great content, just a more focused name on what I am really all about.
As a mom of two young kids, one thing I am very concerned about is tobacco and cigarettes. They see them everywhere and my husband and I have been trying to teach them about how unhealthy they are. Yes, we even sometimes over exaggerate with words like “ew” and “gross” when we are near someone smoking, but it seems to be helping. I was very pleased to hear about the Seen Enough Tobacco Campaign that Tobacco Free New York has launched because kids really have seen enough.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you great moms out there! I hope you’re having a happy, healthy celebration. Yes, I put happy and healthy in the same sentence—because we are happier when we’re living a healthy life. And what better time to start than today, the launch of National Women’s Health Week?
I was recently asked who my ideal conference panel of bloggers would be. It took me all of five minutes to think of a handful of bloggers that I would love to learn from and why. I admire a lot of my fellow bloggers, so please don’t feel offended if you are one and I did not mention you. These are the ladies that popped in to my head immediately because I know I could learn a thing or two from them.
The latest Smurfs movie is finally coming to theaters! My young daughters have been dying to see this movie since we first watched the trailer together.

TeeBlox recently asked me to team up with them to bring you an incredible prize – a $50 Visa Gift Card! There are so many things you could do with this gift card (including pick yourself up a 4 month subscription to TeeBlox!). My mind would be racing with ideas if I was the lucky winner!
I have fallen in love with the Amazon Dash Button. I have mentioned it to you before, but it is a Wi-Fi connected device that reorders your favorite product with the press of a button. It is easy to set up and even easier to use! Just open up your Amazon shopping app on your smartphone to connect your home Wi-Fi network to your dash button. Once connected, a single press of the Dash Button automatically places your order with Amazon Prime free shipping – ensuring you never run out of your essentials again! I use this for several of my daily use items, so I was thrilled when I discovered Colgate signed on with the program. Colgate is my go to brand for toothpaste, mouthwash, and even toothbrushes. I know that I can trust them and being able to reorder what I need with the click of a button makes my life a lot easier!
Kong: Skull Island hits theaters everywhere March 10, 2017 – that’s next week! To help celebrate this movie The Hopping Bloggers have teamed up to give one lucky reader an awesome prize pack worth over $60!
