4. Never Been Kissed – While Drew Barrymore is set to star in Grey Gardens, I have to admit that I am a huge Drew fan and I adore her in her comedic roles. In fact, “Never Been Kissed,” which is currently airing on cable is one of my all time favorites. I always love movies that highlight the nerds vs. popular kids in school. And now that it’s on one of my favorite movie channels, I look forward to seeing it at least as many times as Mrs. Doubtfire (okay, maybe not that many times)
5, Thanks to Classy Mommy, we’re sharing her fave this week – the Mini Notebook – she loves it because it’s compact and she can take it to any room in her house because she says it works everywhere!

Natasha Richardson Tragedy – A Personal Wake Up Call

We’ve just learned that Natasha Richardson passed away this evening while surrounded by her family. After hearing her story a few days ago on how a harmless fall could turn so tragic, it has made me reflect on all those times I’ve felt under the weather and have shaken it off and told everyone around me that I felt fine.
I wonder if Natasha had immediately seen a doctor after her minor fall would she have survived. Or was she just reacting like any other busy mom who dismisses pain and tells everyone she’ll be okay. Perhaps she was embarrassed that she had taken a fall on a beginner ski slope and didn’t want anyone to become alarmed if she was in pain. She was vacationing with her children and her husband, actor Liam Neeson, wasn’t with her when it happened. She was a mom putting on a brave face for her sons and for those of us who have done that before, it definitely makes you think twice about dismissing an injury that could turn fatal.
Natasha Richardson was a true Role Mommy – a Tony award-winning actress, wife and mother of two boys who pursued her love for the theater throughout her impressive career. In fact, prior to her skiing accident she was rehearsing for her next role where she was set to star on Broadway along with her mother, Vanessa Redgrave.
Our hearts go out to Natasha Richardson’s family and hope that with her passing, that we all take stock in our own lives. No matter how busy you are, if you are injured, seek medical attention immediately. If you’re in pain or not feeling 100 percent – then don’t just shake it off. Let Natasha Richardson’s passing be a lesson to us all to never take chances when it comes to your health and well being.
Rest in peace Natasha. You will never be forgotton.
