Free Diapers in DC

As a new mom, I quickly found out that having a baby is an invaluable, yet costly experience.  Diapers alone can average about $70 per month which means that for some families, even the essentials are hard to provide.   

You can donate $5 by texting BABY to 5200

Kirk, Mike, Jack… we crash DC radio

What a morning! After we wrapped the show we decided to drop in on our favorite radio buds in town. First stop was at 105.9 The Edge where we squeezed into a sweltering studio for the hilarious Kirk & Mike Show. From calling out Howard Bernstien’s “pancake face” to teasing a mud wrestling match between Andrea and me when they return… the boys had us rolling. Tune in to 9NEWS’ Morning Show Friday for video evidence of our visit.

Why do we look like the rat pack?

Our well behaved interns
