August 25, 2010

On Tuesday, August 24th, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released “The Back-Up Plan” on DVD and Blu-ray! This romantic comedy stars Jennifer Lopez and Hollywood’s newest stud (seriously), Alex O’Loughlin. It’s the unconventional tale about love, marriage, and a baby – but in reverse.  You can find in stores and online now, retailing for $20.95.


Jennifer Lopez stars as Zoe, a single New Yorker who dreams about meeting Mr. Right, having a baby and living happily ever after. But after a string of Mr. Wrongs, Zoe commits to her back-up plan: to take on motherhood alone. Zoe’s plan proves far from foolproof when moments after her procedure she’s swept up into a whirlwind romance with Stan (Alex O’Loughlin), the man of her dreams. Can Zoe hide her pregnancy until Stan is ready for the truth? Or will the truth send him packing? The Back-Up Plan is a hilarious romantic comedy about courtship, love, marriage and parenthood – but not necessarily in that order!

    My advice to a new mom, would be to be flexable. I have two children now ages 2 and 8 and things are always changing and schedules never stay the same.

  2. Amy A says:

    Menu planning is the best way that I can keep my home under control! When I come home and don’t know “What’s for dinner, Mommy?”, I get so overwhelmed! Now that I’ve been menu planning and doing my weekly cooking on the weekends, I am lost when I don’t!

    Each experience is different, each mother has different support groups, and each has a different mind set. The best I advice I could give to a new mother is to try to take one day a week just for you. I know that is not easy, but it will keep you grounded. 🙂 Thank you.

    While I am not a mother the thing that my sisters have stated that they do is that there has to be some point in each day (be it 5 minutes or an hour) where it is just about them. There is not kids no hubby or anything else involved.

    It is ok to ask for help. I was one of thoes new mom’s who thought she could everything. I now know I have people around me who is willing to help especially my family and I dont feel like a failure if I do call and ask.

  58. Denise B. says:

    What worked for me was to stop working. Sixteen years later, I know it was the best thing I had ever did. I don’t miss out on my children growing up, their accomplishments, etc., and I don’t have other people watching them and experiencing those things. My work in the home is more important and more fulfilling than any job I could ever wish for. I know some people say they have to work to make ends meet; but, when I sat down and figured out the expenses of child care deducted from my pay, it didn’t leave much to make it worth it. Plus, becoming a professional couponer, rebater, and sweepstaker reduced our out-of-pocket expenses tremendously. We get so much for free or next to nothing that it actually made it more affordable to stay home; and my income was around $30,000/year 16 years ago. You can accomplish anything you set your mind to do.

  73. Valerie H says:

    Just remember to kiss your babies everyday…..no matter how old they are. Mine are 13 & 9 and sometimes I have to sneak it in when they are sleeping. 🙂

  74. My tip would be to keep a journal and try to stay organized and, most of all, set aside some me time for yourself at least once or twice a week.

  75. Sandy S. says:

    Make lists and ask for help when you need it! I’m a list-maker and have always been one…it helped quite a bit while I was pregnant with my son (now 3) and it still does. I tend to forget things, so it’s nice to have those notes all over the house to remind me!

  76. Sue Farrell says:

    Stop expecting everything to be perfect—a perfectly clean house, perfectly behaved children, etc.–just ease up and enjoy life more.

  84. Tressa Yetter says:

    My advice for new mom’s is enjoy them while they are so little.. one day you will miss it dearly. Don’t stress the house being a little messy…at least it looks lived in and it will look worse once the kid/kids start playing and running around the house. And finally.. when the kid/kids are taking a nap… make time for yourself to relax.. take a long hot bath.. take a nap yourself.. paint your nails..read.. anything to relax.

  85. Amanda D. says:

    My advice would be to always to take time for yourself every day, even if it is just a few minutes!

    nope, haven’t got a clue

    Find a daycare center you trust and use a day planner to keep up with what’s going on.

  131. Don’t stress over the small stuff. Don’t worry about little things like diaper blow outs and being covered in puke. They happen, you do what you have to do and move on. Housework can wait and time goes by fast so don’t miss out on every detail and milestone your little one has.
