Motherhood movie about mom-bloggers released today on DVD, Blu-Ray; win a DVD on SouthernMamas

motherhood_3dChances are you’re going to like Eliza Welch, a former fiction writer-turned-mom-blogger played by Uma Thurman in MOTHERHOOD.

The comedy, co-starring Anthony Edwards and Minnie Driver, comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray today (Feb. 23) We’re giving away TWO of the DVDs this week. But you have to read this post to the end to find out how to win.

Thurman’s Eliza, an urban, stay-at-home mother of two, makes me want to emulate her, at least a little. I appreciate her lists, her humor and especially her honesty about the paradox of motherhood – that desire to savor every minute of our kids’ fleeting youth while also longing to carve out time for our other ambitions. In Eliza’s case, she wants to be a hands-on mom but she also wants to return to her pre-mom passion: writing.

This film, that premiered at Sundance Film Festival premiere last year,  is perfect to watch after a long week of toddler tantrums and household budget fiascos. You’ll enjoy Eliza’s take on what it really means to be a mother. With the exception of the prince-to-the-rescue ending, MOTHERHOOD is worth watching.  And even more worth winning. 

To win a copy this week, comment below. Just tell us how many kids you have. That alone deserves winning something, right? We’ll pick a name at random and announce the winner Fri. Feb. 26.
