So while many moms are wishing for a morning they can sleep in, or a day without their children, I’m wishing for a fun filled day with my kids, of course minus the chores. Alas, I’m always asked what’s my recommendations for Mother’s Day Gifts aside from the obvious choices, so here it goes, my thoughts on how to avoid the […]

Now that baseball season has returned, my boys are thrilled that the NY Mets are back and better than before. Most of you already know that we are long standing Mets fans but as a mom, there are plenty more reasons for me to love the NY Mets. For one, the organization cares about its fans. There are so many memories made at the stadium that make a trip into Queens to see a game totally worth it. My family had the privilege of witnessing this year’s first Mets #FamilySunday home game at Citi Field. While my kids have been to […]

get-attachment

It’s finally spring time and for my family that can only mean one thing: baseball is back! For those of you who have been following through the years, it’s safe to say you are aware that we favor the NY Mets in my home, but as a mom, being a Mets fan isn’t just about the team. While I’m all about David Wright and the Amazin’ Mets, as parents, the game is as much about my family’s enjoyment of a day spent together at the ballpark, as it is about who wins. Being at Citi Field to take in a […]

Curing the Spring Break Fever by Going HOME #FandangoFamily

home_the_Movie

So our family didn’t have any glamorous travel plans this spring break.  Instead it was filled with supplementary workbooks and sprinkled in with a few playdates.  Not that the weather helped at all either, spring seems to not have received notice that it is indeed SPRING.  Ever eager to make the most of things, and provide some memorable playdates without pulling a Martha Stewart, I let my daughter pick a few close friends for a movie date. If you haven’t seen the movie HOME yet, you must.  It’s a heartwarmingly sweet movie about the meaning of friendship and family.  It […]
