Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

The View

I've been watching The View on and off since Rosie was on the show. The interaction between the hosts and their guests is always fun to watch. It's also refreshing to witness "Hot Topics" being discussed by opposing views. It's nice to see opinionated women discussing topics unafraid to expose their own views. Shouldn't we all be this way?

I've recently been invited to join an elite group to help spread the word of The View. Mom Central and ABC Daytime have teamed up to create The View Brand Ambassador Group. Doesn't that sound elite? We'll be given inside scoops on topics and guests and they're even asking for our feedback (which excites me most).

If you are a fan of The View, check back next week for more info and "secrets" about the show. If you've never seen the show, you can view full episodes on The View's website. It really is like sitting down with some girlfriends for coffee and some chatting.

Today Victoria Beckam was on. Gosh, to have that beauty and body. I'd love to sit down with her for a chat. First I'd ask her what's the best fat burning exercise that she's used. I'd hope she wouldn't tell me to just stop eating. Looking at her I can't imagine she eats much, but jealousy may have clouded my judgement.

Yesterday they were talking with kids about sext-ing. This is scary stuff and I can't even imagine what it will be like when my kids are actually old enough for a cell phone. They had two teens on who's lives were totally ruined by sext-ing. I'd have made the kids watch if they were older. It was an eye-opening segment.

I look forward to watching the rest of the week and tweeting with the other Ambassadors. Look for us at #theviewmoms. Grab a cup of Joe and join in.

I am a participant in a Mom Central campaign for ABC Daytime and will receive a tote bag or other The View branded items to facilitate my review.


  1. And to think I knew you before you became elite. lol I really can't stand that show. All the yelling makes me nuts. The only time I've watched was when I had no choice, and all I wanted to do was turn the volumne. I like Whooping alot, can't stand the blonde...can't think of her name, and am always surprised when Barbara doesn't take better control so they could actually have a dialog instead of a shouting match.

    So enjoy, I'll be here blogging in peace and quiet instead. lol

  2. If I recall correctly, you're not much of a TV person anyway. I like the way they voice their different opinions. So much more dramatic when Rosie was on, though. She and Elisabeth went at it all the time. Rosie Rocks! Whoopie is good too, just not quite as vocal. Babs has mellowed quite a bit since the early days.

  3. This is all exciting, isn't it!
    I'm one of The View Moms too, come visit!

  4. Congratulations on being selected as one of The View Moms ~ I love the hot topics segments too. I argue with them like they can hear me. LOL


Thanks for stopping by. Let me know you were here.
