Bridge Street: Host Chat 7/7/16

Price studio, this is "bridge street.

?syracuse skyline?

>> sistina: good morning everybody.

Welcome to "bridge street.

I'm sistina giordano alongside tenesha murphy.

How are you?

>> tenesha: good.

I have my shoulder back!

I'm ready for the heat!

>> sistina: i'm buttoned up in the short sleeve dress.

There is the humidity.

>> tenesha: there it is.

>> sistina: i put on casual clothes and yoga pants but it was too hot!

How are you?

>> tenesha: i'm good.

>> sistina: me and harper are going to canada this weekend.

Getting ready.

Two and a half and flying.

I've never flown with her at this age.

>> tenesha: how long is the flight?

>> sistina: two hours.

And we visit detroit.

>> tenesha: they have a chick-fil-a!

>> sistina: you like chick-fil-a?

>> tenesha: i love it.

It's so good.

>> sistina: do we have one?

>> tenesha: no, i'd be big as a house if we did.

>> sistina: the goal is to not show harper everything, and be a surprise.

So she doesn't have a melt-down.

>> tenesha: you give her a nap to avoid a melt-down.

>> sistina: we leave too early, and usually there's a layover.

>> tenesha: don't be the first one on the plane.

This is what i do with my kids.

When you fly with kids, they let you go first.

But i would rather be last because the longer you sit on the plain unentertained.

>> sistina: well i will be sitting close so i won't have luggage.

>> tenesha: i'm worried about when are we going to take off?

The less time we spend in the confined -- are you going to have to change her die per?

>> sistina: no sdiaper?

>> sistina: no she is potty trained.

But that is a great segue.

>> tenesha: a group of women doing a diaper drive, i didn't realize how many people who have to choose between feeding their family or buying diapers for their baby.

It is insane.

These group of women got together and collected diapers, in their first-ever diaper drive they collected close to 23,000 diapers.

The local charities, they don't give diapers away.

If you go to the rescue mission, you say i need diapers for my baby, they say we don't provide diapers.

These women collected all these diapers and took them to ircht different charities.

>> sistina: the samaritan center could only go through distributes five or six.

An adequate supply of diapers for one child could cost $100 per month.

>> tenesha: those stores that have a high markup, they can't go to wegmans or walmart and get diapers for cheap.

>> sistina: if you are trying to make ends meet, they say some people spend like a quarter of their income on diapers.

If you are not making a lot of money -- >> tenesha: i forgot how much diapers cost!

>> sistina: it's expensive.

>> tenesha: i want ed to buy the biggest pack in there and it was like $35.

You probably have to buy that once a month or even -- >> sistina: i do amazon mom, it's cheaper, i get a 15 or 20% discount.

But we buy diapers, monthly, sometimes we need to buy more before we get the monthly supply.

>> tenesha: people who don't have the internet.

They don't know that's the route to get diapers cheaper.

>> sistina: if you would like to send monetary donations you can.

We just put the address up on our screen.

Central new york diaper inc.

Located at 201 east genesee street, 13066.

They also have a website we can check out as well.

>> tenesha: they loose diapers.

>> sistina: i have newborn diapers that i don't know what to do with.

Awesome thank you.

22,000 diapers.

More than that.


Switching gears a little bit, social media, we're both on our phone pretty regularly right?

Between texting and facebook and everything, now scientists are saying, if you oar social media junkie, then it may actually be an addiction.

It releases something in the brain similar to maybe what a drug addict goes through.

When you post pictures and people react to your pictures, isn't that weird?

>> tenesha: i'm addicted.

I'm a little bit addicted to facebook.

I'm getting off facebook i say, i'll be off months but i'm getting back on.

It's almost like a little drug.

>> sistina: where people give it up for lent, give it up for 40 days, which i think is pretty incredible.

I don't do it because of what we do every day.

I'm on it regularly but for a rule, when i'm home for the kids, harper might be of the age where she'll say mom get off your phone!

>> tenesha: my kids say it to me, honey, i don't even mind!

Sit down and did you eat your food?

I'll find myself checking it.

But i'll get off of it.

>> sistina: do you use snap chat?

>> tenesha: i can't do that, snap chat.

>> sistina: i don't understand it.

It disappears, you can't take a photo and snap it later.

It's instant.

>> tenesha: they just changed it last night.

>> sistina: now they say adults are using snapchat.

It was initially created for younger kids, teens, college students.

Even my husband and i, i'll send him a snap of our kids.

The other night we went for ice cream, the kids eating ice cream, eddie eating ice cream for the first time.

But i sent it to him.

Why didn't i just send the video?

That's a sign i'm old.

Because i don't understand this app.

>> tenesha: my kids came home yesterday and my son said we were using snap chat and strayed faces and all like this.

And i'm oh goodness.

>> sistina: we went out to dinner a few nights ago, andrew said, look at this!

The family behind us, the kids were buried in their phones!

Not just one child, the whole family.

>> tenesha: he was texting her, the faces -- >> sistina: they recognize the face, make it look funny.

I don't know.

>> tenesha: we'll do that.

>> sistina: we'll save the snap and share it on facebook.

>> tenesha: that will be funny, ha ha ha!

You'll get to see her in a pony tail.

>> sistina: which you never usually do.

>> tenesha: we have a great show today.

>> sistina: yes we do.

Coming up this show on "bridg street."

>> tenesha: how to help your dogs beat the heat this summer.

>> sistina: and
