I am joining you today from the studios of WUSA-Channel 9, the CBS affiliate in my hometown of Washington, DC. (Go ‘Skins!), fresh from taping "Moms Love Lucy," a show to help the station launch DVM moms.com. Moms Love Lucy will air on Friday, September 1 from 8 to 10:00pm EST, and will feature me and 4 other moms, including the station anchor, host and media personality Lesli Foster. (Unlike last time, this time, I took advantage of the photo op. You don't have to tell me twice …)
Moms Love Lucy will feature our lively discussion about the joys and challenges of motherhood, sandwiched between mom-related "I Love Lucy" episodes from the 1950's. It's amazing that in the over 50 years since "I Love Lucy" first aired, parenting remains the same in many ways. Oh, sure, Lucy didn't have the technological advances, career options and moms groups we enjoy today. Yet like me, she dealt with lack of sleep, debated with daddy about whose turn it was to change the diapers and felt like her heart was being ripped out when she sent her child to school for the first time. The more things change, the more they stay the same!
If you love Lucy like I do, you won't want to miss this unique opportunity to watch 3 of the most popular episodes on September 1 from 8 to 10:00pm EST on WUSA-Channel 9. Moms Love Lucy won't air outside the DC area, but the chat room will be open during the show so you can join in the discussion.
