(Spoiler alert: I HAVE A CODING ROBOT AND HE’S ADORABLE AND HE SCARES MY DOG AND IT’S AWESOME.)
Join me today at 10am on KSHB 41 for my segment on KC Live. As always, I’ll post pictures after the segment, but I wanted you to have the links to the toys and gifts I’m showing and where to get them! Hoping my big brother will make a cameo as my on-camera assistant. Because really what kind of little sister would I be if I didn’t make inconvenient, last-minute demands. *Boss baby since 1984 (TM)

So you know when you have that feeling like there’s something looming in the back of your brain you keep meaning to follow up on but you don’t? And it turns out to be that you’re supposed to be on live television in less than 24 hours? That was my Tuesday afternoon.
For one thing, I had no segment prepared. For another thing, not to get into details, but I’d spent the past 48 hours depression-eating chinese food and chocolate ice cream and I wasn’t in the ol’ razzle-dazzle frame of mind. To say I was disheveled and bloated is a given, but it was so bad that after I put on my Spanx in the morning, my 4 year old poked my stomach and said “Why do you have a baby in your tummy?” And I sweetly told her it was just an IUD in a bunch of Hyvee Chinese and Haagen-Dazs, then I stuffed her Elsa lunchbox full of loose kale and black jelly beans and sent her off to Preschool.
Here are the products I’ll be showing today with links of where to buy. I’ll fill you in on the past 24 hours of my life after the show. It’s been a whole thing.
To see more about these products, catch me on KSHB 41, Kansas City Live today between 10-11am!
Here’s my segment from this morning, y’all. Hippity Hop over to order them here!

Here are the details on the fabulous toys thanks to Educational Insights and Learning resources. Continue reading
So because something always seems to happen right before I’m booked for a segment, I was suspicious of how smoothly my morning was going. Then my four year old got out of bed to come say good morning and I realized she had cut her own hair into a mullet last night while the babysitter was over. Some people may view this as no big deal or a rite of passage, but I felt like I’d been kicked in the gut and I wanted to scream. Rightfully, Savvy was very ashamed and upset, but as I comforted and reassured her, my husband quietly and correctly saw that inside I was getting very close to having a stroke. As she shuffled off to find her doll, I could see the terror in his eyes as he braced himself for the white hot rage that was clearly steaming out of my pores. Luckily, there was no time for me to throw a fit, so I bottled it up to let it ferment like a fine wine and headed to the TV station. Continue reading
Today was another delightful day on the set of Kansas City Live!
The morning did not get off to a smooth start. Continue reading
The week before this segment I made my sorority sister Rachel help me carry a body across a busy trafficway and shove it in the trunk of my car. This time I made her carry a big ole bag of balls. Actually they were inflatable planets that you can hang from the ceiling, but still. Sisterhood at it’s finest.
Here is the info for where to buy some awesome space toys, as well as some pictures from my segment on KC Live! Savvy’s favorite was the Giant Inflatable Solar System (she even loved the pump that comes with it which saved me a lot of work) and the Motorized Solar System is one of the coolest toys I’ve seen and super easy to put together. Definitely check out the Hide-A-Boos because there are fantastic designs and much better quality than those pop up tents that always end up breaking. I would like to go on record saying that my husband put together the Solar System Puzzle and he enjoyed it. Kuhlguy approved. We haven’t played the game yet, but the pieces are adorable and I love that it has different modes to play.
Happy Solar Eclipse Day!

If you didn’t catch me on KCL Tuesday morning you can watch the clip. This segment went much smoother than the whole bathing suit/baby pool incident. One of the other people booked for the show that day was an Air Guitar Champion who goes by the name “Rockward Silence.” I mean, I thought I had blind confidence but this dude performed air guitar on live TV at ten a.m and he went.for.it. I was like, I bow to you, Sir, and your total lack of Fs to give. Continue reading
This segment has everything: an overzealous bubble machine, a grown woman trying to talk and play with baby toys on live tv, Dan Cortez…
