It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Who is this Wonderful Woman?? (updated with posting instructions)

If this hasn’t hit 90% of the Mommy-blogosphere within 24 hours, I will be ASTOUNDED.

I will not tell you how much of myself I heard in this…

[For those of you who want this in your blog, but don’t know how:

1. Go to your dashboard. Get into the Edit screen.
This is important. You can’t do this from the Compose screen.

2. Open another tab, go to the YouTube video.

3. To the right of the video, you should see two SMALL boxes, one labeled “URL” and one labeled “embed”. You want “embed”.

4. Copy the code from inside the embed box, and paste it into your Edit screen.
5. Save as usual.

Done. That’s all there is to it. Good luck!]

  2. Brilliant!!! I love it! Once I figure out how to “share” I will put it on my blog, too!

  3. I laughed my you-know-what off at this one! (If only that was literally, though … ) I’m going to put it on my blog too if I can figure out how to share it!

    And … um … I say at least 75% of those things every day, I’d guess.

  4. Hey, No I don’t know how to get the same screen to show up on my blog. You said it’s easy but I can’t figure it out.

  8. Video no longer available by the time I got here … what was it?

  9. Yep, no longer available.

    YouTube will set up a direct link to Blogspot as well. You just have to register your blog. The instructions are below the video.

    Works for me and I’m the most inept person I know.

  10. Hi Mary–no longer available. Will have to try and see it on YouTube.

  11. Gah! Apparently it is no longer available due to a copyright claim. I’m sorry I missed it.

  12. Anita Renfroe is the artist. She has her own website…you can google it. I’m not sure why the video was taken down because she advertises it on her site.

    In any case, was great for a laugh. I can’t imagine any Mom not seeing themselves in this.

    Thanks Mary.

  14. I saw this last week and I’m almost done with my version for Dads. If I can figure out how to post a video from my camera, I’ll let you know.
