A&E Contacted Me to ask if my blog readers might be interested in being on a television show. I told them I would post the notice, so if anyone is interested here is the information:
Powerful New A&E Series Is Now Casting Couples Who Need Help With An In-Law!
In-laws: most people have them. ..and sometimes, they can be a whole lot more than a couple bargained for. A&E Network shines a light on married couples dealing with in-laws as they try to make peace with the help of an unconventional, no-nonsense relationship expert in the new original real-life series "Monster In-Laws".
“A ground-breaking new series that explores the complex relationships between married couples and their in-laws.”
Are you struggling to maintain a relationship with an out-of-control in-law?
Is a cultural or background divide challenging your relationship?
Does the statement, “When mom/dad says no, ask grandma/grandpa” ring true in your family?
Does your mother or father-in-law still baby your husband/wife, challenge your parenting style or openly disrespect you?
If you’re desperate to repair your relationship with an in-law before it’s too late, we want to hear from you! Families who appear on the show will have the opportunity to work with a professional relationship expert who will help them to identify their issues and repair their relationships. Families who appear on the show will receive a generous financial honorarium as a “thank you” for their time and commitment to the show. There is also a finder's fee for anyone who nominates a family who makes the show.
To apply, please email us with your name, contact information, a brief description of your current in-law situation and a family photo to:

I pushed for four hour when I had my daughter. This left me incredibly sore for weeks and led to probably more physical discomfort than if I had taken it a little slower. After reading this article, I'm beginning to wonder if all of that pushing was necessary. Read more:
2 important pregnancy updates: if you're expecting or trying to conceive, you'll want to hear about these new surprising studies (findarticles.com)
From the article:
A study of 320 women in labor questions the long-standing advice to push during contractions. Compared to those who were coached to push, women left alone to do what came naturally did not have significantly longer labors. Other outcomes, such as C-sections and episiotomy rates, were comparable. Electing not to push can allow weary moms to have a respite.--K.A.
