Last week I was invited to attend an after school even with Instagram. Whatever plans I had quickly took a back seat when I received the invite….because INSTAGRAM! NYC public schools started back the day before the event, so the topic of conversation seemed more relevant than ever!

Before having kids getting around New York City was a non issue. I would take the subway, hail a cab, or just walk the city blocks if I had extra time. As with everything, life changes and now I have 3 kids to also transport from one activity to the next.

Every Winter in New York City, you can always be sure to spot the Elmo balloons floating around the city. Kids hold on to these like a grand prize on the streets and in the subways. I found out myself what it was all about when my son was 1. I remember taking him to his first Sesame Street Live performance and when he saw his favorite characters live on stage his entire face lit up. Oh and don’t think we didn’t go home without one of those red Elmo balloons. Continue reading Sesame Street Live! Let’s Party! Feb 9-19
When the weather starts to get cool, many people have visions of sipping hot chocolate by the fire, relaxing with a good book, or simply relaxing indoors. However, once you have a family, you may have noticed these visions go out the window! Kids want to immediately go outside and explore, even in the freezing cold and snow. I recently partnered with L.L.Bean and have discovered the most amazing items for cold weather and keeping my kids happy! Continue reading Being an “Outsider” with L.L. Bean
