Cool Music for Cool Moms!

Keeping up with new music can be time consuming and time is not something new moms have alot of. If you are feeling like you are little less hip to the music scene than you once were, check out the blog Bands Under the Radar.

The blog is run by Kami of The Viper Room. She podcasts indie bands that are unsigned and signed. She has great taste and really knows her stuff. Her latest podcast introduced me to two new favorites, Bernard Fanning and Rocco DeLuca and the Burden. I feel like a hip mom again.

Thanks Kami!

Donald Trump To Be A Grandpa!

Donald Trump Jr. and his wife , Vanessa, are expecting a baby early next summer.

This will be the first child for Donald Jr. and Vanessa, 28, and also the first grandchild for Donald Trump. Vanessa told People, "Everyone's very excited." Although "if you mention the 'grandpa' word (to Donald Sr.), he might not be so excited."

The family is getting complicated, the new baby's uncle, Barron, is only eight months old. Vanessa stated, "They'll be more like brothers, or brother and sister." Trump Jr. and Vanessa want the baby's sex to be a surprise.

Donald Jr. thinks his wife is a natural with children, "Vanessa will, no question, be an amazing mother. She is one of those few people who are able to take crying children out of their mother's arms and actually get them to calm down. I think I'll have a lot of learning to do, but I learn fast." He also adds that his wife wants a large family, "She (wants) five," Don Jr. says. "I'll wait till she cranks out one and then I want to renegotiate that back a bit."

She also stated that she doesn't want to know the baby's sex, "We could know, but I don't want to know. No names yet, nothing."

Julie enlisted Laura Bennett, a Project Runway finalist, to make her a maternity dress: "I called her up and asked her to make me a dress. I love her style, she dressed herself very well pregnant. So I asked her to send me a dress. She did, but it didn't get here in time." (Finding maternity clothes is) "definitely is not my favorite thing in the world, because you're stretching around a whole new body. What's up with that? It's like I'm 14 and have to figure out how to dress."

Bowen and her husband, Scott Phillips, were married in September 2004. Julie has appeared on Lost, Boston Legal, Party of Five and ER.
