When I saw Steph’s twitter that she was in active labor and about to watch Baby Mama, I almost felt jealous!
Here’s what Steph twittered while in active labor:
- now under 4 mins apart- getting stronger! My mom is here, midwife almost here and we’re all very excited! : )
- still moving right along and about to watch Baby Mama- ha- i am loving this homebirth thing!
- coming along- definitely more powerful contrax but still enjoying the movie w/ mom, hubs & midwife! 🙂
No, I was not jealous because I want to have another precious baby to mother. I love my girls, but I’m not ready to birth another.
My tinge of, “Hmmmm, I wish I were…” was triggered by the idea of watching Baby Mama.
This crazy work-at-home-mom life of mine is so all consuming, that I — like most moms — have not taken time for a real mom-me break.
As stimulating as Super-Why is, I long for more from my TV.
And sitting next to me here at my desk is a screening copy of Baby Mama that I am supposed to review. But even with a ‘must-do-for-work’ excuse, I haven’t carved out 99 minutes of child-free couch time.
But, when I realized that I was almost jealous of a woman who was about to endure unmedicated, unmeasurable pain because she got to take a few minutes to watch a movie, it became very clear that I NEED to take a break.
So, tonight, when I finally get my little love bugs tucked in bed, I am popping some corn and taking 99 minutes with Tina Fey.

I believe that Animal Planet was on yesterday. That’s not animated!
Jennifer C says
Watched the Red Wings hockey game last night. The kids know that when hockey season starts we put the games on. 😀
Christina E says
Last night, I watched Ironman. It was very good. My five year old son really enjoyed it.
Ruthann Rhodes says
I actually enjoy watching much of the animated shows with my girls. However it’s also great when I get to watch ‘real’ people. Last non-animated program I got to see was the news. I get up half an hour before anyone else in the house so I can keep up with what’s going on in the world, although lately it’s been a bit depressing. Maybe they should animate it?(lol)
Peggy Gorman says
Life is too funny ,You watch cartoons and young movies over and over because kids are funny and love to see it 100 times before they choose another movie,then its sending them to the movies when they become teens ,now its full circle and my daughter takes me to the movies. We always have a fun time and I love the popcorn,lol.
I love a good laugh so I enjoy the reruns of Everyone Loves Raymond.
Count me in to this great giveaway
kathleen Yohanna says
We watched “Anderson Cooper 360”.
I have went through the days of Barney, Comfy Couch, Wiggles, etc… I still have “I love you, you love me” in my head…I don’t think I will ever get it out, HELP! lol. Seriously though I still long for the days gone by of Big Bird, Bert and Ernie…..sigh!
My son though lately has been getting a kick out of watching Home Improvement re-runs, he thinks the guy that plays Santa Claus (Tim Allen) is funny.
Right now! Frasier is on. 🙂
I was a surrogate and though this movie isn’t all that accurate, it is cute. 🙂
Jayme Isaacs says

Candie L says
I watch all of the detective shows (or try to) since we do not watch most of them until the boys are asleep. Most of the time I have to ask my husband what I missed
Michelle Williams says
If it was meant to be, then I will be blessed with the DVD. Good luck to all!
Baseball last night
We have a large family. When the TV is on, it is everybody’s turn, but mamas. Fortunately, I do like the SF Giants and the LA Dodgers…so when hubby puts on baseball…it is not pure torment.
But I have learned to tune out the TV or I would go insane with Dora asking “Where do we go next?” She is the one with the map, why is she asking me??? Like I don’t have enough to do with homeschooling, working, cooking, and cleaning…now somebody else wants me to memorize their schedule too?!?!?!
Oops sorry, having a meltdown! 😉
Jennifer Schroeder says
We usually get to watch a little TV every night after the 8:00 bedtime. As far as watching any movies, I have a hard time staying up to make it through to the end of them by that time! Thank you so much for the great contest!
Ed Nemmers says
I watched the debate on Tuesday evening.
I absolutely WAnt this….I Seen dha PReviews
The entire household has been sick with “the Crud” this week…..a.k.a. a very bad cold. We laid around Sunday afternoon feeling sorry for ourselves and hubby watched 1/2 of a football game while I picked up Chinese takeout.

Samantha Miller says

Heather Sebastian says
I watched Oprah last night about the money crisis and it was fantastic!
Tracy Oczkowski says
I was induced 3 times with my daughter within a 7 day timetable. I had labor 3 times with no success as they decided a c-section would be better after 3 hours of hard labor the 3rd time. I was never so glad to see someone after she was born!
My darlings are a bit older, so though I watch so much Sponge Bob, I’m turning yellow, I also get to watch shows my twelve year old likes, such as Project Runway and she love Psych and Monk on USA.

The last time I watched something non animated on my TV was when my grand daughters left my house.
UFC- RIGHT NOW!
Belinda P says
Well I too wish I had some more mom t.v time. My kids are the only ones that get to watch a show everyday. I think my husband and I need to make a movie night just for us. I’d love to watch this movie it looks very funny. Thanks!
Ken Robinson says
I spent the summer watching Big Brother 24/7 and that was very unanimated. Except when senior citizen, Jerry fell in their pool.
We rented a non-animated movie last night!!
Laura Collins says
I like the Amazing Race.
Actually this evening! We were able to sneak in an episode of Fringe that was dvr’d!

Tom Bellamy says

My husband complained on Sunday about watching blues clues for oh..about the 7th time that day……..and I looked at him and said “welcome to my world”! As a SAHM of a toddler AND i keep another toddler…noggin is ALWAYS on my TV! THAT…or baby einstein! The only time i get to watch “mommy shows” is after 9 when he goes to sleep!! And even then..i have other things in mind…like a bath and sleep!!
Jacqueline O. says
7 years and counting
Felicia Shapiro says
I never watch animation except for The Simpsons.
The last movie I saw in the theater was……(Are you ready for this????)………..Titanic. The last movie we rented? The new Thomas the Tank Engine movie, The Great Discovery. We only have basic limited cable, which is about 20 channels. 3 of those channels are Spanish and 3 are shopping stations.
We watch a great deal of Thomas the Tank Engine movies and PBS. Word World is our new favorite!
A good day for me is getting both my boys down by 1 o’clock so I can put Days of our Lives on. 🙂
jennefer sweitzer says
Usually the only thing that isn’t animated I get to watch is football ( When Daddy is home ), except Yesterday we watched the Looney Toons Movie which is movie and cartoon.
Kathy D says
I usally end up watching the dump teen shows like like One Tree Hill i need cable
Gary Emes says
Tonight;One Step Beyond
Well, I live alone so I get to watch non-animated things all the time. BUT, I have not seen this movie, and it’s extremely difficult for me to go to the movies because of my pain condition so this would be awesome to win! I heard it was hilarious, as well, which is great since laughter is good for helping with pain!! Can’t go wrong with this one it seems!!
Thanks so much!
I’d love some alone time to watch a movie! Count me in! 🙂
Becky Grayson says
Since I have grandchildren I can only relate to this on weekends. The kids come over on Friday and I have my choice of animated cartoons or Playstation games to watch until Monday morning when they go home. Yes I keep them all weekend almost every weekend but we alternate and I only have two of the four at a time.
Thanks for the contest.
While the kids were at my sister’s home, I was able to watch the presidential debate last night.
The only non-animated thing I can watch is cooking shows (because my kids love them!)
I watched Skins last night – definitely not animated, and not for kids. Can’t believe they put sub-titles though, come on, us Brits speak the same language, we don’t need to have subtitles on American programmes!
I think the last time I had anything non-animated on my TV was last night after my little boy went to sleep and I got to catch up on “How I Met Your Mother”, which was hilarious, by the way.
I had some ‘real’ movie time with my husband over the weekend.
Linda Moeller says
Watch CRIMINAL MINDS last night.
Jennifer M says
Just last night after our daughter went to bed, we stayed up to watch one tv show. Although, I do have some Imagination Movers songs stuck in my head and they’re not completely animated.
Kari Follett says
I have not seen this, in fact, the only tv i watch these days is CNN 🙂
Victoria V. says
I managed to watch “Dexter” on DVD when the kids went to bed.
Terra Heck says
It’s rare that I get to watch something that’s not animated, but I did watch Project Runway last night.
JESSICA G says
There’s limited TV time so anytime I get it to myself the channel changer certainly isn’t slowing down anywhre near cartoons.
My family would have a movie nite if I win.
Darline Stoddard says

Tamara Bennington says
Our tv is stuck on Nickelodeon or Disney channel, so I have no choice around here.
The Diaper Diaries says
This movie looks so funny. Count me in!!
Rachel Fox says
Since we don’t have a baby, yet, last night, we cuddled up to our fave romantic movie, The Notebook! I could watch that one everyday for the rest of my life, as long as I had enough tissues! Thanks for the great opportunity to win!
amy is hysterical and tina just jumps out at you
Missed out on this at the cinema, but would love my own copy to watch – have yet to see it and I’m a huge fan of Tina Fey. What an amazingly talented, super funny woman!
If it’s not Sid the Science Kid, then it Super Why, or Dora….the list can go on and on. I would love to win this movie though!
Zipporah Sandler says
I’m a HUGE Tina Fey & Amy Poehler fan (from SNL, 30 Rock, etc). I can’t believe I didn’t get the opportunity to see this flick at the movies (just no time in my life for these things lately).
Jennifer Short says
This evening — Jay Leno.
Once the kids are in bed it’s a non-animated smorgasbord baby!
C Duran says
Actually, I’m watching The Colbert Report right now!
I watch Countdown with Keith Olbermann and The Rachel Maddow Show every night on msnbc!
My youngest is now 13 and I THOUGHT animated would be over but now there is Spongebob (I am one of the few in the world who dislikes that show SO much) and Bakugan (spelling?) When will it ever end?
Ashley - The Adventures of Supermom says
Not only do my children tell me what to watch on tv, they tell me what songs we have to listen to in the van. I tried renting this movie this past weekend but it was totally out.
Nancy C says
When my daughter knocked the rabbit ears antenna off of the kitchen television.

veronica sandberg says
Julie B says
I’ve got a toddler and all we watch is Barney, Sesame Street, the Wiggles, Dora, etc. I could really use a “grown-up” movie to watch!
When the kids are awake…cartoons are on. We try to watch some movies or dramas when the kids are sleeping.
Adrienne Gordon says
last night we watched heroes
We always get Netflix. Baby Mama is hilarious!

Jane K says
Haven’t seen this movie but would like to.
We also belong to the rare number of people that have no cable so we rent movies pretty much every weekend, only to fall asleep to them most times. I have wanted to see this movie…it looks so fun.
Jacob LaFountaine says
Just watched Leatherheads
Pat Connors says
Has there ever been a non-animated time in my life?
I have a DVR and one of my favorite shows is House Hunters. I have 68 saved right now, because I have little to no time to watch the show and it’s only 30 minutes long. I did watch three episodes over the weekend though.
I wanted to see this movie since I haven’t seen it before. It looks really funny.
Angela H. says
This would crack us up. I will make my family watch this. I do not care if they don’t want to. Just kidding. I would like to see it though.
Rhonda (Mimi) says
I would LOVE to own this movie! I will never forget going to rent this movie for my daughter Steph while she was in labor. When I walked in the video store they had it waiting for me and didn’t even ask for ID. The girl was so nervous cause she knew Steph was about to have a baby and she wanted to hurry me out. Sitting next to the midwife laughing with her and knowing that in a few hours, baby Ivy would be making her big entrance was just unreal. It was a big party….I kept looking over at Steph during the movie and she was such a trooper doing her breathing and even getting up to walk or get in her positions that worked for her during the contractions…..As you can see, I am so excited talking about this….So, I would love to win this!
valerie mabrey says
watched fringe late at night
I think that this will be sooo funny. I believe that this movie represents the difference between a first time monther and one that has had several children. I am now pregnant with my second and think that it is funny how I feel differently about things.
Jennifer Barnett says
We watched NFL football yesterday. Fun fun fun.
I can’t even remember the last time my husband I went to the movies or even just sat anad watched one at home. We have an infant and by the time I take care of her and get done what I need to around the house I’m ready for bed.
Gloria Walshver says
I would love to win this movie,since movies are expensive and I can’t afford it.
Monique Rizzo says
Well lets see the last time I got to watch something NOT animated???? Does Cosby Show ring bell with you? And I DONT mean re-runs. LOL. UGH-I think I have watched more Dora and Spongebob to last several lifetimes.
Theresa Shafer says
I am really looking forward to winning this. Thank you.
My mil asked me who I thought would win the Emmys. I told her I have no idea Dora or Pokemon in our house! 😉
Good Luck to all
Nice giveaway, I want to win ! Thanks !!!
I love tina! She’s hilarious!
I would love to see this, and add it to my movie collection!
And Steph’s birth story was AMAZING!
great movie! I watched Disturbia yesterday
Susan C says
I don’t have to put up with a lot of cartoons, but getting to watch something that isn’t sports or poker tournaments is rare around here. I would love to see this movie-Tina Fey is great!
A great movie- I’d love to win! I’m watching CNN right now.
Rhonda Struthers says
I love my PVR. I watch the Food Channel without commercials.

Corrie C says
I just watched george lopez, I LOVE him hes awesome and i never miss his sitcom.
Amy Tucker says
This is a good question, because even the weather channel feels animated. Ok, news last night when everyone was sleeping. Don’t tell anyone…
I’d love to see this movie!!! My hubby and I have been sneaking episodes of 30Rock (on DVD) when we can, after the kids are in bed… But as far as an actual movie? That requires about 1 1/2 – 2 hours of uninterrupted time! With an almost-3-year-old and a 6-month-old? Not gonna happen!!! If I won this movie I’d definitely make time for it though!!!
Deborah Wellenstein says
Thank you for this giveaway!
Jenn S. says
Dh and I rented movies and watched them after the kids were in bed this weekend. It was nice. During the day, if the TV is on, its something animated.
Barbara Cafarelli says
I can repeat most of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Spongebob shows word for word. If its not them then we have Dora the Exporer on or Handy Manny or Fairy Odd parents just to name a few.. But non animated well does getting to watch Speed Racer at the movies and now at home count?? Something for me is great if I can catch the traffic and weather before bolting out of the house to drop #1 son off at school on my way to work!! By bedtime I am beat and can’t make it pass the first 5 minutes of any show. It took me 6 tries to get through seeing the “50 First Dates” DVD!! I would love to see this movie ! It looks like it would a great laught!!If I can stay awake !!!
I’m afraid all that animation has killed brain cells….I don’t know how long it has been! 🙁
Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!
Tonya Froemel says
love to win this
Susan Smith says
I watched an episode of Project Runway that I had recorded
Melissa V says
if you count sesame street as not animated… *laugh* yeah it’s been a long time, can’t even remember really. so i would make time just for this. thanks for the chance.
The kids have taken over what to watch on our tv’s.We go to a movie every week to give us a break.
I watched On Golden Pond last night. 🙂
Karen Gonyea says
I always make time once a month to watch a sappy lifetime movie !!
Dan Smith says
I watched a movie last night that wasn’t animated
between my daughter’s cartoons and my husband’s sports addition…i dont get to watch anything…i think it has been at least 3 weeks since I have watched TV…but I have the laptop…all is fair, i guess.
lisa f says
The only time we are animation free is when the news is on,,,or the rare occasions I get to watch something my DVR recorded once the kids go to bed
Lisa L. says
Just this morning, all to myself.
Jacob’s Ladder movie. Interesting :o)
Margaret Smith says
Last night, my husband and I watched Pretty Woman after the kids were in bed. Not his idea of a great movie, but we just enjoyed snuggling together and getting some adult time alone.
Thanks so much for this giveaway.
Actually being a grandma has its perks! I look after my grandchildren during the week so I get to watch grown up shows all weekend!
Would love to win!
Teresa Wilcox says
The last thing I watched that wasn’t animated was TrueBlood on HBO. Sex , violence, and vampires. It’s a nice escape. My son was asleep and I was in heaven.
Rita M says
Between Netflix & Tivo — annimation doesn’t stand a chance on our TV set!
Count me in!
Sonya Sparks says
It was actually yesterday when I was home alone. I watched the movie “Waitress”. Thanks for the chance.
haha we have a shrek marathon going right now due to weather and flu and when I WALK OUT ONE OF THEM RESTARTS!! OR BACKTRACKS TO FAVORITE TO REPLY SO ITS LONGER!!Last time, hmm the weather reports for hurrican ike so about a week. My fault- do not like the tv on violent programs- my kids easily pick up words and I have to deprogram them…they also get wild with commercials in between and get distracted and have to restart a movie after potty and food breaks. I cannot wait till I have time to watch and catch up on Army wives next week- you know I will be doing work on the computer or sewing or paperwork but still it will be real tv
Brittany W. says
Last thing I watched that wasn’t animated was the House premiere that I DVR’d.
Ann Fantom says
We watch movies after my daughter goes to bed
Erica C. says
well I do like tina fey, so I tend to watch some 30 rock…also I love the office, so I get to watch that!
charline s says
We watch movies after the kids are in bed. The last good movie was Welcome Home Roscoe.
shannon Baas says
Don’t watch much animated.
susan varney says
we’ve had cable for about 20 years so that would be the time
Last night my husband and I watched Criminal Minds on DVD. We rent from Netflix, so we, and our son get a chance to watch what we want.
Looks so funny! Thanks fo the giveaway
Steph Elias says
After the kids went to bed last night, I watched Dexter.
Michael Capp says
Most of the time. Over the summer, the mean Dad (me) canceled cable to encourage the kids to do productive tasks and with the exception of the occassional evening show that we watch as a family, the television remains off.
kathy Weber says
I honestly can’t remember when our t.v. played something that wasn’t animated! It’s sad when we are driving in the car my kids like to play ” Who said that” I usually win!:( I couldn’t wait for my kids to go back to school, but then our teachers went on strike, so I’m still stuck in animation land. PLEASE help!
DARLA KIDDER says
Well we have 4 tvs in the house with satellite so the kids can watch what they want and the adults can watch what we want.Last night i watched CSI Miami.
I actually played Pearl Harbor last night! (only saw ten miniutes of it though)
Tracey Byram says
Tristan and Liz get the tv during the day for their shows. At night, the tv is mine. So I watch pretty much what I want to after dark.
This weekend we were away from home so I have been almost animation free all weekend, so right now no sob story here, just lucky! But it would still be super to win! Thanks!
I laughed hysterically watching the trailer for this film! I would love to win this. I rarely get to watch TV or movies (or listen to the music I like in the car, for that matter). It took me about 18 months to watch Lord of the Rings after my second child was born. I watched a few minutes at a time while I exercised – which says a lot about how much TV time I get and how often I exercise. Please pick me!
Hollie P. says
I’ve been dying to see this movie! Hope I win! 🙂
Tara R. says
well, we USED to have two TVs and I would occassionally get to watch something for myself but then my two sons BROKE our flat screen (cracked the liquid crystal screen… tv completely dead). So now we are reduced to one tv and as far as I can tell I NEVER get to watch anything for me. With three kids and a husband I am basically relegated to reading a book. Luckily I like reading 🙂
I DID watch the season premiere of House the other night- all three kids in bed and husband at work!
My hubby and I try to rent a movie from Redbox (can’t beat a BUCK for a movie!!) on the weekends whenever there is a new movie out that looks good to us! So we def get in our NON animated movies on the side….at night, when the kiddos are in BED!!! 😀 Ha!
Thanks for the chance to win…this looks cute!! 😀
OMGoodness! That movie looks so funny! I wish my labors were happy enough to be enjoying a movie :o)
Mary B says
Oh I really wanted to see this one! Those women are hilarious!
We’re signed up for Netflix and enjoy non-animated entertainment as often as we can (which isn’t often!) This looks hysterical!
I definitely get my fair share of tv time after the kids are in bed…but I tend to fall asleep so I don’t know if it really counts.
I have the benefit? of having my hubby work nights. So he’s home all day (and is a huge help), and then I’m free in the evenings to watch movies, read, blog, etc. I watched Baby Mama just this week! And What Happens in Vegas, too. 🙂
Oh, I so want to win! I’ve been dying to see this movie.
Fortunately, I don’t have a sob story. My son is only one and doesn’t watch TV. A few nights a week, the “adults” sit down and watch something on DVR!
Mindy Said says
We have a TV Guardian box, so we are able to watch things that might not be normally appropriate because the TV Guardian blocks out all the bad and inappropriate words and phrases. 🙂
Normal to Natalie says
I watch tv at night while reading blogs! but i don’t remember the last movie i watched… i would love to win this dvd!
I take the time, just neglect everything else as it falls apart around me. There isn’t time for everything after all. 🙂
Belinda A. says
I don’t even know what it’s like to watch an adult movie anymore, the last time my TV played anything other than an animated movie was during pregnancy. 20 months later and I can’t even guess at the number of good movies I’ve missed. At least Veggie Tales has some adult laughs in their episodes . . .
You want a sob story. I have twin toddlers, they have run of my television during the days b/c I wouldn’t want them viewing anything that I would watch. I have a teenager who likes to watch wrestling and nature programs on the ‘big screen’ after doing his homework. My husband is deployed for a year so at least I don’t have to fight with him for the television after the kids go to bed but the kids don’t go to bed until 10pm so my sorry self has to sit up until the wee hours if I want to watch anything remotely adult related. Yes, that’s right, woe is me ;). I am just dying to see this movie by the way.
i have limited the animated DVD’s to a select few that don’t drive me crazy while i am in earshot! i have a few characters songs permanently in my brain.
Me time? What’s that? since my daughter was born 5 months ago, the only “me time” I get is going to Wal-Mart on my lunch hour to buy supplies for my office. With my demanding job, I get up, go to work, come home, feed and bathe the baby and go to sleep just to do it again the next day. Oh and did I add I’m living with my mother so we watch what she wants….even if I try to escape to my room I’m followed by the entire house! (And no, I’m not a kid, I’m 30 years old!) Please somebody help make me laugh!
Our TV refuses to play any more animated films. If it has to utter the phrase, “the names mater, like tuh-mater, without the tuh” one more time, it will move out for good.
Please help to save our family from this disaster. Pick me for the Baby Mama DVD!
We any have antenna TV, and it doesn’t get very good reception. The past few days it’s got nothing at all! So we go off of videos and music. I have listened to my daughter’s nursery rhyme CDs so many times that I get the songs stuck in my head all day, and they play over and over while I’m trying to go to bed. Nothing like “3 Little Ducks went quack, quack, quack” to try to fall asleep to. I finally put in one of my CD’s yesterday that was upbeat so she could dance to it. It gave me a break from her kiddy stuff.
Ummmmmmm….uhhhh….yeah….Oh! I watched a movie…no I didn’t. You know, I have no idea…

I haven’t got a sob story just yet… But I am about to have a homebirth myself, and would love a copy of this DVD to pop in for a little laughter!

I am not a mommy, but I haven’t watched a good movie in ages. I need some change!
Amanda Daybyday says
I can’t say I’m too hard done by when it comes to TV watching. The TV doesn’t see adult shows during the day…but after the kids go to bed, I make up for it 😉
I try to stay awake after my daughter has gone to bed to watch my DVR’d shows, but I usually fall asleep LOL
I keep getting told I need to see Baby Mama, since I am currently pregnant with #2…having the DVD means I might actually get to watch it. hee
Elizabeth M. says
After the kids go to bed, we break out the good stuff so I can’t say I have to cry about it. I did see Baby Mama in the theater and oh my gosh, I haven’t laughed that much in a long, long time. It was awesome and I definitely need that one in my home dvd library!
I loved this movie!!
Mama Zen says
I can’t remember the last time I was able to watch a movie all the way through!
I watched a non-animated movie last week, the only problem with that is it was my husbands pick. The wonderful acting of Bill Engval and Billy Ray Cyrus in “Bait Shop”. I have to admit it was funny in spots but not the type of movie that i was wanting to see. Baby Mama would a wonderful movie to watch on the night that it is my pick.
We don’t have cable so we get movies from the libary. I’m about 1 yr behind on TV shows and movies.LOL
We watch a lot of Nick Jr. at our house. Then the other kids get home from school and pretty much take over the TV. By the time everyone’s in bed, I honestly have no interest in a feature length movie, I’ll watch 30 minutes of something I’ve DVRed then fall asleep halfway through. Unless my husband’s got control of the remote, in which case he’s watching some car show and I’ll nod off in probably 5 seconds flat. I’ve actually had “There Will Be Blood” from Blockbuster for two months and still haven’t built up the alertness to watch it. I love Tina Fey though, she’s my fave. I’d stay up for that. 😉
I haven’t seen this movie yet, but it has been on my list. I’m a bit too busy to sit down and watch a movie as well. However, I did rent, from Redbox, and watch Fools Gold a few weeks ago. It was pretty good. I’d watch it again! 🙂

I never get to watch TV. We have DVR also, so we will try to catch up on our shows on Saturday night. The fact that I don’t watch anything is also my own fault. I spend the bulk of my time working on my website – even late at night. Now that I have been so busy, my four year old has gotten used to having reign over the TV. The other day I told him that I wanted to watch just episode of something. I was tired of hearing all the little jingles and tunes from his shows. I flipped through the guide and much to my son’s dismay chose “Jon & Kate Plus Eight.” He tried to let me watch but the whole time he kept asking me if it was almost over. Then he went into a full meltdown complete with crying. I was relieved when the show finally ended. 😉
I can’t remember the last movie i watched that didnt involve animation or a famous cartoon character broght to life by a even more famous actor. My kids rule the TV in this house and when i am not watching Dora, Diego, Cars, Nemo, and what ever else they have decided they want to see that day i am reading to them about the same Characters. I am in desperate need of Mom-Me time. I wanted to see this when it was in theaters but the day that i had made plans to go with my sister my son got sick and there went my plans. So i would love some one on one time with me the tv and Tina lol!!!

If the kids aren’t watching the TV, then my husband is watching car shows on the Speed Channel. I can’t win! The only show that we watch together is Monk. Great giveaway!
Marlena U. says
The last two visits to Blockbuster have resulted in this movie being completely checked out and then my husband gets to win the battle and choose a movie of his liking…and I fall asleep on the couch while he enjoys a thriller/action/sci-fi movie…ugh! Give me the comedy/chick flick/romance movies and I’m set. So, maybe this weekend we’ll try again! Since this movie is so darn popular it looks like I need to win it in order to see it. Thanks for the chance! m_huston(at)hotmail(dot)com
Amy Scroggs says
hmmmmmm…. probably last week was the night… I was catching up on coupons and watched “The Little Princess” Love that movie!!
Who can stay awake long enough to watch a whole movie?
We don’t have satalite or cable, but don’t watch much TV anyway. We usually rent a DVD occationally and I have wanted to watch Baby Mama. But I’d mostly love to win this so I can give it to my daughter, who just had us a brand new grandson. I think she would just love it, and I plan to watch it with her.
Carrie F. says
OMG we are supposed to watch things that ARE NOT animated or on the Disney or Nick channel? Wanna know something scary? If I turn on the tv during the day while the kids are at school and there is a *new* episode of Zach and Cody or something on I will watch so I can tell the kids…how sad is that? *hides*
Every night my husband and I crawl into bed to watch a show we recorded on our DVR. We like House and a few others and like to watch them together. Probably 9 out of 10 might we make it about 5 or 10 minutes into the show and then I wake up 2 hours later to find the TV still on and the DVR asking me if I want to delete the show.
We know there is non-animated TV, we just can’t seem to stay awake long enough to enjoy it!
I haven’t seen this movie but it sound hysterical!
When the kiddos are napping I sometimes catch up on my shows while reading blogs:) I haven’t been to an adult movie in a while though. With the cold winter looming here in New England we will be hitting the red box more!
Well, not animated…hmmm….it’s been a really long time. We were without power but we watched all animated/children’s shows but I did enjoy them 🙂 I’d love to see this movie too!
I had Friday afternoons off over the summer, so DH and I took movie dates. I was so excited to see a movie in the theater again! A few days we stayed home and watched PPV movies. It was heaven!
I want to see Baby Mama so badly!
My husband and I haven’t been to a movie since 2004 before ourfirst son arrived. we do not live near family and that makes it hard to get date nights. when we do rarely get one without the kids sitting in a theatre has not been on the agenda … plus it is just so expensive to go to a movie these days.
I’d love to win this as I have been wanting to see it since I saw the preview!@
Terra Jones says
Well, I have a 17 month old who is as hyper as all get out.
August 15th, we welcomed our 2nd precious son into the world.
Since then, we’ve dealt with our oldest suffering from bronchitis, our youngest and I having thrush, him having a bad latch and ruining the tatas…
I just emailed my doula when she asked how I was holding us with everything and said, “I feel like a milk and medicine dispensing robot…”
Such is life!
Whenever I see the preview for Baby Mama, I crack up at the pump part where she’s got the pump on her ears, omg, I NEED…I LONG to know how much this movie will make me laugh!!!!
The last movie I watched was Hoodwinked that my friend let me borrow. First off my daughter decided she didn’t want to sleep that night. Then I realized that movie was awful so that was the end of my “movie night”. I haven’t attempted a movie night since and I think that was a year and a half ago. Yikes! Its been Baby Einstein videos and cartoon dvds… *sigh* oh the sacrifices of motherhood
Other than my current obsession (24 from Netflix) I don’t think we’ve brought a non Disney DVD into the house in forever.
Janet F says
I use my DVR to record movies that I want to see.

Hubs picked up a couple of movies over the weekend…one was animated, for us to watch, not our son (we find most of the newer animated movies more appropriate for adults, not for kids). The other he watched, because I was caring for our son!
I never get to the movies so DVDs are what I watch
The Gang says
Well, the last thing I watched that wasn’t animated was an hour or more of time-delayed CNN last night. The Boss and new baby daughter were sound asleep in our hotel here in Xian China and I was too wired from our good old American St*rbucks treat to sleep. I actually cracked myself up watching the mouths move after the sound started. Even time-delayed, Anderson Cooper is dreamy 🙂
So here is the story. The sound on our TV went out, so we have to pipe it through the DVD player. And you know who watches the dvds in our house more than the big people? My two boys!!! So pick me so Hubs and I can have a date night!!!
last time something not animated played?
i dvr’d SNL with tina fey as sarah palin doing the opener so my teens and i watched it and laughed until we cried.
i loved baby mama! i went with my darling daughter #1 when she was 8 months pregnant. we had so much fun laughing while watching it.
We’re trying not to let our baby watch TV till he’s 2 (he’s 18 months now), so we TiVo everything and then end up staying up way too late watching our shows after he’s in bed.
Oh, poor me! Since starting our homeschool year, I’m over a MONTH behind in watching my soap (All My Children).
I don’t enter these giveaway contests very often, but this movie is definitely one of my favs. TINA & AMY ROCK!
The only think I watch that isn’t animated is the news. And it’s usually the late news after Talon is in bed. Though, I’m looking forward to the fall season of my favorite shows starting back up – Private Practice, Grey’s, Men In Trees.
But, I haven’t watched an adult movie (especially one that wasn’t just on a TV channel) in ages! I’m thinking of starting Netflix back up this fall/winter. I’ve wanted to see Baby Mama since it came out!
Monkey Giggles says
that would be NO regrets!
Where are my manners? Thank you for the giveaway
Monkey Giggles says
okay, No sob story here. It’s my own fault. I have my face stuck in this computer for WAY to many hours. Seriously, I have spent most of my summer developing,marketing and promoting my new website. It has sucked all my time. No regarts. But that’s my story
At the beginning of August my hubby and I actually celebrated our anniversary weekend by catching up on some movies – my parents took the kids for a night and we ended up watching something like 6 movies while they were gone. (2 in the theater, 4 at home) I felt so caught up with the rest of the world!
Thanks for the giveaway.
That’s a tough one. PBS and Playhouse Disney seem to rule our house. I work from home in the evenings so no play time there. Hubs and I did see Pineapple Express in the theater in August. Prior to that I couldn’t tell you when I had been to the theater. I don’t remember much about the movie. I think I was just so amazed at the thought of being out on a Friday night without the kids.
I wanna see this movie really bad!!
Man, do I know the feeling. I’ve entitled this month “Sick September”. Why? This month started out with my 10 month old showing signs of a wicked ear infection. Just as he was starting to act a little normal, my husband caught a nasty stomach virus. Neither of them are quite over their ailments and I’m fading…I’m fading fast!
(So why am I not in bed?!)
This movie looks hilarious! I can’t wait to see it.
The last time I watched a non-animated movie was when I tried to convince my toddler that the Sound of Music was just as good! I’d much rather listen to “The Hills Are Alive…” than watch Cars one more time!
But my husband and daughter are in bed so I’m going to go sneak downstairs and watch a girly movie all by myself! Not Baby Mama, because Netflix has that as a “Long Wait,” which means that it’ll be a decade or so before I get it. =)
Hubby and I just watched Wild Hogs. Funny movie! Last thing on TV I watched was The Biggest Loser via DVR LOL
Kelly's Krazy Kids says
Movies? What are those? We only get to watch Noggin over here. 🙁
Thank goodness for DVR and kid’s bedtimes!
We don’t have cable so our viewing choices are limited at best. Last time I went to a grown-up movie (read: not a cartoon) with my husband? Let’s just say it was my birthday and we saw Titanic. (Don’t tell me what year that came out. I don’t know and I’m sure I don’t WANT to know!!)
Oh how I used to love watching The View, but now, with a toddler in the house, I just crave the 30 second previews/commercials I get to catch!
If my husband and I ever go out to a movie, it is separate. I saw Harry Potter by myself last year, he went and saw Transformers and Iron Man by himself, and that’s the extent of our theater going! I have certainly heard of Baby Mama, but I didn’t get the opportunity to go by myself to the theater. DVD is the next best thing!
We have a DVR so thankfully I get to watch some grown up programming sometimes, albeit way past its usually scheduled time. And it’s packed with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but whatever…
Since school started, I get to watch GMA in the morning, because my 2 yr old hasn’t figured out what time her shows come on. But after that, she knows that either Handy Mandy or Super Why comes on. And it’s downhill from there. When I try to flip the channel, she’ll holler, “Momma, watch that, Please!!!” *sigh* I do get to watch some reality TV shows in the evening, if I don’t fall asleep 1/4 of the way through. Then I have to either find what I missed online, or at message boards, lol.
Oh the joys of Mommyhood!
Sarah at themommylogues says
I occasionally get the chance to watch a movie. BUT. My husband and I have not been to a movie together since our daughter was born. 5 1/2 years ago!! Every time we actually have an opportunity, there’s nothing we want to see. We did not have an opportunity when Baby Mama was out, because I really wanted to see it.
Linda F says
No sob story here. We watched a rented movie on Saturday that was not animated.
I don’t have cable TV so my selections are limited. I do love the Rachel Ray Talk Show since I do not have the Food Network. I don’t havea lot of time to watch it but when I do the kids know it’s Mom Time 🙂
My oldest has to be at tennis during the time the show is on. It’s 20 minutes there and 20 back. I thought I could catch the last 10 minutes of it today. I almost was in a car wreck and my nerves were shot. I got home, with hands shaking, and turned it on. The phone rang immediately, then my cell, then the home phone. Well at least I got to see the credits 🙁
