    It's My Daughter's World, I'm Just Livin' In It.

    in Lifestyle

    "MC Izzy joins Kristin Cruz on tonight's Mommy Monday!"


    My daughter had to "come to work with me" which means she's taken over the show. Her 2 yr old brother has GERD, or acid reflux, which he's suffered from since birth. We could do a whole show on this, and I may put it on the books if you are interested- let me know in the comments section. 


    His reflux was gone for a long while. But all good things must come to a (gassy) end. He's napping now, and it's late, so you know what that means. Anyhow, it looks like those sleepless nights are back. 


    "They're BAAAAaaaack."


    TONIGHT'S SHOW: Listen for shout-outs to Twitter followers & active listeners, including Real Simple Magazine and Dish Nation. Special thanks to ROOTS Hummus out of North Carolina for our dinner! 


    For the "Izzy Show" skip to the end. I interview her for the last 5 minutes and she's not shy. 


    Our line-up of guests for next Monday's 30 minute show: Celebrity Journalist & Funny Daddy Marco Gonzalez talks about Vasectomies. You may want to download it for your hubs too. And from LA PARENT Magazine & NAPPA Julie Kertes will catch us up on the latest Award Winning Kids Products.


    Happy Momy Monday & we are going to rock this week!


    XO, Kristin
