First things first: the lice. Any detailed horror tales about the ordeal?
My kids have never had lice. I had no idea how difficult it was to get rid of. The over the counter products didn't work. Thank God for Jill and her advice about Lice Enders -- I call them Lice Busters. I still have the scar on my chest from the lamp I used when trying to pick them out of their hair. So happy my husband wasn't there for the ordeal. You and Alex really hit it off this week! Can you elaborate on your first impressions and your friendship since meeting her? I
thought Alex was nice, just meeting her and speaking Italian was so much fun. My first impression was a good one.
You mentioned your son sometimes gives you a hard time when you go out. How do you balance being a mom and having a busy social schedule?
My son loves to give me a hard time about going out. He's 11 years old, so it's understandable. I try to make him understand that it's important that I have my time with my husband alone and with friends as well. It's not always easy, but I try to balance the best I can. I'm home a lot with the children -- being a mom always comes first.
You went to the uber hip venue Cake Shop with your niece Nicole in this episode. Which band did you see? What were your thoughts on the experience?
I went with my niece Nicole to see her friends' band, Big Black Cloud. Josh and Rob invited her and she brought me along. I love going out with Nicole downtown to see what's happening and to take a night off from the uptown scene. We certainly don't have the shopping downtown has to offer, if you know what I mean.Any green tips for Earth Week?
My green tip is this: when you go shopping, ask not to have all the extra paper they give to wrap items such as shirts, etc. Packaging is a huge waste of paper and trees. Also, re-use shopping bags from your grocery market. Being green is not just buying green products, it's living it and thinking it.
