 The Mom Show comes to Ottawa

A few weeks ago I was contacted by someone from the Mom Show. The Mom Show was coming to Ottawa, and would I like to be in the studio audience?

Well, first of all, I wasn’t sure what show we were talking about, but there it was, listed on the Slice Network website, so it must be legit. :)

Sarah and I went to see the taping this morning while Emma stayed with a friend. It was kinda fun. We walked away with a couple gift bags (which contained diapers among other things… ) and an appreciation for what it takes to put on a show. Sadly for me, I blew an opportunity to introduce myself to someone I really wanted to meet…  the editor of Canadian Family magazine.

But Sarah was happy. It was a fun kind of outing, and she snagged a chocolate croissant out of the deal.

Now I’m just in a TGIF state of mind. You?

I was supposed to go and couldn’t at the last minute :(

haven’t seen the mom show yet but have watched Catherine on the Rogers show and knowing her personally, am sure she’s doing a fantastic job here too :)

I just finished watching your Ottawa show and was a bit disappointed in the winner of the new products segment. I guess your judges have not heard of Weekenders Fashions – a home party base that has exactly the same idea as the one they chose to win. Weekender has been around for years and I have been to numerous parties. I personally thought the baby towel was a much better idea. Thank you. Enjoy the show very much. Clara De Paolo

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
