Reflections on What Maisie Knew #whatmaisieknew

maisie

Last week I had the privilege to attend a private MomTrends screening of What Maisie Knew starring the amazingly talented Julianne Moore and equally so Alexander Skarsgård.  Based on the original novel by Henry James but set in modern day, visually beautiful, New York City, it is a powerful film illustrating family dysfunction through the eyes of a 6 year old.  So well done, many in parts due to the adorably loveable Onata Aprile, you are emotionally drawn in.  I personally don’t have any experience with the breakup of  a family, but left this movie with a wide-eye understanding of the emotions […]

Happy Belly, Happy Family!

IMG_0705

{ disclosure:  Already a “Happy Family” family, this is a sponsored post in which we received an assortment of Happy Family products to enjoy. } When it comes time to introduce baby’s first foods, you want to give your child the very best.  Often parent’s look to organic as their baby’s first food.  But not all organic brands are created equal! When the Little Mister was an infant, he struggled with everything from colic to gastro reflux.  He had everything from severe gas, to projectile vomiting.  He had a sensitive stomach to say the least.  My first introduction to the […]

Celebrating the Amazing #BirthdayBash

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Growing up birthdays weren’t a big deal in my home, although I really wished they were.  I always felt like I was missing out on something.  There were no birthday cupcakes at school, or birthday parties celebrating another year, but boy did I love the idea of celebrating someone on their day.  After all doesn’t everyone need to feel a little special at some time?  Now as a parent, ever eager to compensate and perhaps live vicariously through my own children, they will never know a missed birthday and instead they know a mom who loves to celebrate EVERYTHING! This […]

All that Glitters #DisneyPaintMom

This is confession time.  As some of you already knew, I was the only one who knew the sex of our baby.  It wasn’t by choice.  I really had wanted to keep it a surprise, but a lab tech let it slip and well, in light of everything at the time, I was just happy the baby was healthy.  I did have quite a bit of fun with things and was really patting myself on the back for keeping that secret from my husband the entire pregnancy.  I really am a terrible secret keeper normally.  That said, I was torn […]

DEALS & STEALS: New York Mets Experience #MetsMoms

mets_beatus

If there is anything to know about me and my family, it’s that we are all huge sports fans.   As a matter of fact, when I began dating my husband, one of the first questions he asked me was “what baseball team to you root for?”  We both enjoyed growing up as Mets fans so much that we even had a Mets themed wedding cake.  So it was no surprise that when we had children, we would both decided to do our best to expose them to the excitement of baseball. When we had our second child this past year, […]
