Beauty of the Talking Twins

I am the proud mother of three boys, two of which are twins. All siblings have a special connection (and sometimes special brawls), but twins have an extra connection that is hard to describe. When I think back to the days my twins were babies, there were many special moments that they communicated to each other in their own secret language. I could even call it babble with meaning.

The other day a friend, who knows I have twins, sent me a link to the new viral sensation: Talking Twins taken by Twinmamarama (hat tip to SFGate for helping me figure out who the brillant mama who took the video is).

TechMama goes HotMama on MommytoMommyTV

At the Sony Mom Blogger event I had to opportunity for a behind the scenes glimpse of professional movie magic and (on a smaller but equally important scale) how to create my own photo and video magic – at a demo of the Sony digital products.

I was especially excited about creating video for my site. But I realized I had one small problem: while I may know lots about tech, I still have lots to learn about video. I was lucky to have met Kimberley Blaine of TheGoToMom, who also gives vlogger seminars. I decided I need to get my video mojo on and what better person to learn from then Kimberley?

Kimberley Clayton Blaine just launched her newest online video venture: MommytoMommyTV - a new online show for moms. I was excited to host one of the shows. The show is called TechMama Goes HotMama.

So of course I prepared… Real Housewives reality TV style..

My segment was about meeting my mom comedian idol Heather McDonald (in LA) to have her sign a copy of her book that I purchased. I wanted to get myself Hollywood ready to meet her, so of course I got a spray on tan and hair extensions. Really.

Watch my segment to see my full makeover details.. Did I really get to meet the fabulous Heather McDonald? Did I also meet any other fabulous comedians? Was I able to walk in the super sized high heeled shoes I bought for the video? Did I have an orange glow from my spray on tan? Did anyone pull my hair extensions?
