Mark Hamill recently shared on social media that he and his wife, Marilou have been married for 40 years. In an anniversary post, he shared a collage that showcases several photos of the couple. It looks like there is one photo per decade that they have been together.

There is a recent photo of the amazing couple, one of them when they first got together (Hamill looks like he did in the first Star Wars film), one photo from probably ten years ago, and one of the couple with all three of their children when they were young. Mark and Marilou have three kids, Nathan, Griffin, and Chelsea Elizabeth. The children are now all in their thirties, and Mark and Marilou have one grandchild from Nathan.

The Hamills got married in December 1978 at their Malibu home at the time. Before they got married, Marilou was a dental hygienist. According to old interviews, their first date was to see Annie Hall at the movie theater. Mark said he would only date women with a sense of humor, so, funny movies were a great way to test that.

They Weren’t Always Together And In Love

After they met and as Mark got more famous after Star Wars, they broke up for a while. Mark wanted to be single and was very into his new fame. He wanted to date other girls, but eventually, he said he got bored with it and craved a wife and family. That’s when he reconnected with Marilou.

Marilou said during their time apart, she always hoped they would find their way back to each other. She also said she thought she would be good for him. They now attribute their strong marriage to how private they keep their life. They don’t go out and party and they don’t live in Hollywood.

This Is Why Julie Andrews Immediately Said No To Appearing In ‘Mary Poppins Returns’

We are where nostalgia lives

Mary Poppins Returns is set to hit movie theatres across the nation on December 19th. Many are anticipating this movie to be a box office smash, starring Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins and Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack. While the original Jack, Dick Van Dyke, made a cameo in the 2018 film, you won’t be seeing the original Mary Poppins, Julie Andrews, alongside him.

According to Variety, the movie’s director Rob Marshall had asked Andrews to make an appearance in the movie, but she declined the offer. The reason behind Andrews’ answer is simply beautiful and reminds us all why we love her so dearly.

Walt Disney Pictures

Director Marshall spoke at the premiere of Mary Poppins Returns, saying, “'[Andrews] immediately said no. She said, ‘This is Emily’s show and I want her to run with this. She should run with this. This is hers. I don’t want to be on top of that.’

Marshall did confirm that he did not pressure Andrews any further to take on any specific role, but there were hopes that Andrews would play a minor extra role of the balloon lady in the film. The legendary Angela Lansbury ended up taking on that role instead of Andrews.

Walt Disney Pictures

The original Mary Poppins film came out in 1964. The original film was based on a series of eight published children’s books ranging from years 1934 to 1988.

The plot of Mary Poppins is centered around the Banks’ children, who are now facing the newest prospect of meeting a new nanny. They are pleasantly surprised when they come to realize that their new nanny, Mary Poppins, is quite magical and in more ways than one. They find themselves going on amazing adventures with the new nanny, visiting different worlds they never thought to be possible.

Walt Disney Pictures

The original Mary Poppins film received several nominations for awards after the culmination of the film and has been awarded some of the highest honors in the film industry. This award recognition includes a Golden Globe in 1965 for Julie Andrews for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role – Musical or Comedy and several Academy Awards including Best Score, Best Original Song, and Best Visual Effects.

The newest Mary Poppins Returns film has already been nominated for a number of awards, many of them for the same exact categories as the original film.

Studies Show It Might Be Better For Your Kids To Have Fewer Toys

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Attention parents and grandparents! A recent study has shown that it’s better for your little ones to have fewer toys, so you might not want to run to your nearest toy store just yet. According to the Infant Behavior and Development Journal, an environment with fewer toys is better for kids and this is why.

Researchers studied groups of toddlers and gave the groups either four toys or sixteen toys. According to the study, kids who were given fewer toys focused more, were more engaged, played creatively, and interacted with their toys in a variety of innovative ways for longer periods of time. Essentially, less chaos of a massive amount of toys equaled more focus in the toddler’s upbringing.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has reported that certain types of toys are better than others and the simpler ones tend to be the best for children’s upbringing. Apparently, the best toys for them to play with are the non-electronic ones with no screens or apps (meaning you shouldn’t just pop an iPhone or iPad in front of their face and call it a day)!

Alan Mendelsohn, MD, FAAP, made a statement in the AAP, saying, “The best toys are those that support parents and children playing, pretending, and interacting together… You just don’t reap the same rewards from a tablet or screen. And when children play with parents — the real magic happens, whether they are pretending with toy characters or building blocks or puzzles together.”

Now, of course, it can be hard to get the whole family on board with giving fewer toys to the baby of the family. How exactly do you get everyone on board?

Professionals that spoke with Good Housekeeping provided some expert advice on how to deal with family members giving a little too much this Christmas season when you really would like to cut back per your child’s benefit.

Safe Kids Pennsylvania

The professionals have stated that their best tips are as follows:

  • Clear some space. Get rid of old toys to make room for any potential new ones so your child isn’t surrounded by mountains of toys. Perhaps donate them to those who are less fortunate and show your child where the toys are going and who they could be helping out.
  • Don’t keep everything. This coincides with the previous tip. Your toddler may throw a tantrum but they will move on and get over it. Katie Hurley, LCSW, says, “Too many toys can feel chaotic. A simple explanation, ‘We have more than we need right now; we can save some and share some and still have plenty of fun toys to use,’ goes a long way toward helping kids learn an important message: It really is the thought that counts.”
Parent Center Network
  • Ask for non-tangible things. Instead of a video game or another doll set, ask for a subscription or membership to something they can participate in for the experience. “We know experiences are more gratifying than objects, so it can be much more meaningful than adding more toys to the pile,” says Emily Edlynn, Ph.D.
  • Try to convince your relatives to take your child out instead of keeping them in with toys. Perhaps sledding or out to eat!
  • Don’t sweat the small stuff. If your relatives continue to get you more toys for your child, pack them away for a rainy day. “What often works is asking a child which toys she wants to play with now and which ones she wants for later,” Dr. Newman recommends.

Be Careful This Christmas — These 5 Holiday Plants Can Poison Your Furry Friend

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

It’s typical for our pets to get into the Christmas spirit with us and end up getting their noses into the ornaments, the food, and the plants. However, there are some holiday plants that can really harm your furry companion, so it’s best to keep your Christmas plants out of reach this year!

Dogs and cats just live for chewing on stuff. They see one branch on the Christmas tree and soon enough it could send your pet to your vet if you aren’t more mindful of that. Poinsettias aren’t the only holiday flower that could potentially harm your pet; but everything else that’s holly and jolly certainly can, too! Here are five different holiday plants to keep your furry friend away from this Christmas season.

Real Christmas trees

Catster

Pretty much any Christmas tree you decide to pull up for this year’s Christmas contains small amounts of essential oils that can make the tree smell beautiful. It won’t be so beautiful anymore if consumed by your pet. If consumed in a high amount, the needles can form a wad in the GI tract, causing obstruction.

Mistletoe

Lia Griffith

You might want to give your pet a big, old kiss under the mistletoe; just make sure they don’t get ahold of it! Only one bite has the potential to make your pet very sick. This usually occurs in the form of vomiting followed by lethargy. Continued vomiting may signal the need for medical attention from your vet.

Holly

Holly can cause stomach irritation and vomiting in pets. Because of the severe form of stomach irritation, this may lead to blood in the vomit, in which case a visit to the vet will be necessary to acquire drugs to stop the vomiting and coat the inner part of the stomach to protect the ulcerated areas.

Lilies

PetMD

Lilies are especially toxic for cats. Simply brushing up against the plant and grooming off the pollen is enough to cause kidney failure in felines. Your best bet is to acquire a non-toxic Christmas plant.

Amaryllis

Thompson Morgan

The actual blooms and stalks of this plant won’t harm your pet, but the bulbs will. There are plenty of toxins in the area below the dirt which can cause vomiting (with and without blood) and potentially low blood pressure.

A fun fact about Poinsettias

The Dogington Post

Despite the rumors that eating Poinsettia plants can cause fatal side effects, it’s nothing more than an old wives’ tale. They may cause an upset stomach in pets, but they are not toxic to your furry friends.

Be sure to SHARE this article if your furry friend loves getting into your Christmas plants! Keep them safe this year with these tips.

We are where nostalgia lives

The food recalls keep coming this year. Now Del Monte announced that they are recalling over 64,000 cans of corn, more specifically their Fiesta Corn that also contains red and green peppers. According to Del Monte, these cans might contain the bacteria that causes botulism, which can be life-threatening.

According to the FDA’s website, “Del Monte Foods Inc. announced a recall of 64,242 cases of FIESTA CORN Seasoned with Red & Green Peppers due to under-processing. These deviations were part of the commercial sterilization process and could result in contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens, which could lead to life-threatening illness if consumed. It is important to note that there have been no reports of illness associated with these products to date. No other production codes or products are affected by this recall.”

It can take about 10 days for symptoms of botulism to appear and it can be fatal for some people, so Del Monte made sure to recall this product to prevent any illnesses or even deaths. According to the Center for Disease Control, botulism symptoms include double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing, a thick-feeling tongue, dry mouth, and muscle weakness. Infants with botulism may appear lethargic, feed poorly, be constipated, have a weak cry, and have poor muscle tone (appear “floppy”).
