Thank you for watching the show and for your comments! Always helpful!

I made it to the rooftop. Yeah!!! What a glorious Saturday afternoon it was.

While we were in the car enroute to Jimmy's Rooftop, I mentioned to the girls that Reid was nearby with one of the children at the downtown Apple Store. When the ladies heard Reid was near, they begged me to ask him to join us. And so I did. Contrary to the hilarious I Dream of Jeannie reference, I did not make Reid instantly materialize. That can only be done on TV. Nonetheless, I wouldn't mind having Jeannie's magical blink -- how fabulous would it be to summon and dismiss others instantaneously with the wave of my lashes? Hmmmm, this trick might have come in handy during the season. . .

I hope you enjoyed watching my favorite night time routine with my children. Bath time! They are small for such a short time; I just try to savor every moment I can with them. The scene with Reid and Hudson shaving melts me every time. Unfortunately, my big mouth nearly derails the moment when I make a rather ridiculous comment referencing stay-at-home moms. It had been a long day, and I was exhausted. I fear the impression I gave seemed to pit women working outside the home against stay-at-home moms. That is the last thing I meant to do. I know that women work for economic reasons and/or for self-fulfilling purposes. It is hard enough trying to be a competent parent without having to endure others' uninformed comments and judgments about our circumstances. Moms should support each other's choices and refuse to be drawn into fruitless debate about which life choice is preferred.
