…I thought Landon would love Ruby. I couldn’t wait to come home and see how he liked the DVD of “Ruby’s Studio: The Feelings Show.”
And my gut instinct had been right — L loved the show and Ruby. The Feelings Show is so different from other kids shows, refreshingly different from anything on Nickelodeon, PBS, or the Disney Channel.
Watch this video of Abbie and Samantha explaining why they started The Mother Company and you’ll understand what is so different about Ruby’s Studio:
I was so excited when they decided to advertise on Dagmar’s momsense — see their cute ad on my sidebar? — and I told Sam that if Ruby ever makes it from California to New York she just had to let me know.
And a few weeks ago she did come to New York City!
So L and I took the train to Grand Central to meet his crush Ruby.
When we got to the fancy fish restaurant for the lunch before the event with Ruby, they had a “babysitter” who was wonderful with the kids so we could enjoy some mommy time to chat about parenting, blogging, and motherhood.
It was nice to get some quality time with Abbie and Samantha and some of my blogging friends. I sat next to lovely Onica and had a wonderful chat with her.
These NYC events are usually so action packed that we blogging mama’s don’t get much time to say more than a hello or good-bye before we rush off to the next thing.
We enjoyed Ruby reading the new “Feelings” book and hearing “The Happy Song” featured in the show by kindie rocker Elizabeth Mitchell. After the little concert, it was time for a photo opportunity with Ruby, but L refused.
I tried several times, we had come all this way for him to meet Ruby, but he didn’t want a picture or say hi to her.
But I got a nice picture with Ruby :)
And thank you for the signed picture of Ruby L received a few days ago that reminds him that he “is loved.”
