Scrubbing the Comedic Dirt with Marlon Wayans & Scrubbing Bubbles ®

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Scrubbing Bubbles® and SC Johnson.

As Moms we are all aware that both cleaning and comedy go hand in hand. We’ve shared those moments that make us go “Ugh” with you before and not too long ago we were invited by Scrubbing Bubbles® to spend the afternoon at New York City’s iconic Gotham Comedy Club for an exclusive comedic event with Marlon Wayans! His performance focused on those surprising, yet amusing moments he experienced both growing up and as a father.

Upon arrival guests were invited to a pre-reception down in the Scrubbing Bubbles® lounge where the kiddos got in on the act and fellow moms shared their utmost hilarious “Ugh” moments with one another. Do we spy future comedians in the room?

Guests were then brought to the main stage where Marlon brought a full supply of giggles and delivered laughter for all! We laughed out loud, because who doesn’t love a good joke? We cried, because we were laughing so hard. To be able to laugh along with Marlon with our kids by our sides was a great bonus. Both Marlon & Scrubbing Bubbles® delivered a comedic sketch that was genuinely hilarious and appropriate for all ages, proving that Scrubbing Bubbles® can clean even the toughest of jobs.

Laughter is the best medicine and lucky for you we’ve got it on tape! Check out the highlights from Marlon’s Scrubbing Bubbles® routine below!



The Moms on Pix 11: Parents Negotiating with Children

Comment below and weigh in, are you a parent that negotiates?

Chronicles Of A #FutureCancerSurvivor "No Hard Feelings Chemo, But I'm Just Not That Into You"

landscape-1468427752-denise-albert-chemoIt’s finally time for me to move on. ~Denise Albert, The MOMS #FutureCancerSurvivor

“Chemo” is like that boyfriend I met and dated on a bad reality show. There was a little getting-to-know-you phase that included some euphoria. I had no choice but to try to fall in love in order to continue to win. It wasn’t so bad, I told myself. I was able to continue to live most of my life the way I wanted. But like butterflies in your stomach in an early relationship, Chemo slowly made me nauseous and changed my appetite and taste completely.

You know those controlling types. Yes, Chemo was that too. Chemo wanted me to look a certain way: Read more

Chronicles Of A #FutureCancerSurvivor "A Thank You To My Cancer"


“It’s not all bad, all the time.”~ Denise Albert, The MOMS #FutureCancerSurvivor

By Denise Albert

We all know that cancer sucks. That’s the obvious. You may feel sick. You may look sick. You have to go through treatment, surgery, loss of hair, exhaustion, mood swings, bathroom issues, rashes. Nausea, loss of appetite, anxiety, guilt, scary thoughts and possible death.

This is what we know about cancer. Cancer sucks. I even let my kids say, “F–k Cancer.”

I’m in the midst of it, so most of it does suck. I had surgery in January and have been in chemotherapy since March. It continues through the summer and then on to radiation. I won’t be done with treatment until next May. Whilst I have found some 5mg edible cannabis gummies that help with the vomiting and nausea, it is still an understatement to say it’s unpleasant. I will say that things like CBD are a great relief whilst recovering from cancer because there are many different aches and pains that happen due to the medication. For this reason, it might be beneficial for cancer survivors to read into the likes of We Be High’s comparison post and the other online resources that can guide them in the direction of reputable CBD providers and products. It helped to alleviate this pain and make it much easier to be motivated to beat this nasty illness. Not to mention when our little dog also got cancer it was shown that CBD treatments worked with him as well, where you can get these treatments from places like cbddoghealth.com, so it is a very good way to combat pain during this difficult time, humans and animals alike. There will be more medications for the next 10 years, and I’m already over it. Two weeks ago I had surgery to put in a mediport because my veins have had it. As positive as I’ve been, this procedure and the thought of it set me back emotionally. It hit me hard. I now need a device implanted in my chest. If a port sticking out of my chest with a wire you can see running up to my collarbone isn’t enough of a reminder that I have cancer, then my 11-year-old telling me I look weird without makeup is what does.

Many people survive cancer. There must be some good that comes from it. For me, so far it’s the little things: Read more

Denise Albert

Do you, [insert partner’s name)] take Denise Albert to be your partner? To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or with cancer, for richer or poorer, with cancer and in health?
