I’m so excited for the new direction of Live Big With Ali Vincent! Although there will be a lot more real life and that is not always the most comfortable place to be, it’s exciting! Obviously my first experience of reality TV was on The Biggest Loser and yes I have put myself up in the public eye since but to having a camera film your entire day is an entirely different experience. Now granted I am not being filming everyday and since I do not technically live where I usually film it is a bit more of an adventure than my normal fairly mundane day to day and did I mention my mom is filming with me a LOT more? As much as my mom and I have grown in our relationship, we still revert to old behaviors that don’t particularly flatter either of us. And as you have probably guessed EVERYTHING is captured on film.
I just spent the weekend in Florida at Walt Disney World with my mom and the Disney Social Media Moms. I had a blast, there were babies everywhere! And it got me thinking about the mother daughter relationship and reflect on my relationship with my mom.
I often find myself reacting to my mom in a way I no longer want to, I only want to love and appreciate her. But as I go through long days with my mom again stuff pops ups, have you experienced this? How do you really talk about it without there being energy and really just try to process it? And will there ever be a time that it no longer comes up? I know my mom still experiences it with my grandma only now I think a towel is thrown in so the bickering stops on one end or the other.
Anyway I think it just becomes more apparent when there is a camera to capture the going on’s. This weekend was a great weekend! Mom and I have been on an adventure with the new direction of the show. Babies were abundant and I have seriously peeked with my baby craze...... oh no I need help ;)
I do want to extend a huge Thank You to all the DisneySMMoms for welcoming me so freely and allowing me to be a “suto” DisneySMMommy for the weekend. I applaud all that you do to share with each other and change our countries childhood obesity epidemic one child, one blog, one post at a time, you ladies are what living BIG is all about!
I hope you all had an amazing Mother’s Day Weekend.... until next week,
