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, […]

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY indeed… have I ever been WORDLESS in my life? As you may have known, Marcus, my little shadow, has been having a hard time adjusting to having a new little brother.

We’re loving what Stride Rite, the name synonymous with quality children’s shoes, has in store for fall! As guests of MomTrends and StrideRite at their debut at the Petit Parade NY Kids Fashion Week, we had a chance to check out the future of Stride Rite and boy oh boy… does it look BRIGHT!  I’ve gone to fashion shows before but this was my first kid’s fashion show and it was just too cute!  These kids had such personality and really rocked the runway showing off the latest from Stride Rite. You can always count on Stride Rite to put your child’s […]

A Little Pixie Dust by Disney Paint #DisneyPaintMom

photo

With Baby #3 on the way, there was a lot of anxiety among the children about this big addition to their lives.  We wanted to find a way to make each child feel special in their own way and know that they were very loved.  My little princess, unbeknownst to her, was truly going to be our little princess as Baby #3 is another boy.  This year she started kindergarten, where her formal education begins.  She had been asking for a desk to do her homework at and we thought this was a great opportunity for us to re-paint her […]
