Living Effortlessly with Walmart Effortless Meals

share_a_coke

I fondly always call my family as my zoo.  With 4 kids and all with very busy lives, the one thing I look forward to each day is sitting down with them for dinner.  It’s the only time, if at all, that the entire family gets together just to pause and catch up.  During the summer time, despite school being out, the kids seem busier than ever.  Between camp and all the activities I have planned for them like actually going to the zoo, the library, museums, the beach, etc., By the time mealtime hits, I’m plum exhausted.  I’m very fortunate […]

Getting to Know @BLUEMANGROUP

blueman

It’s always important to show your children how special they are. I often feel that having some one on one time with each child individually can be beneficial in making your kids feel secure, and loved. My older son loves having one on one time with his parents and we try hard to make that precious time with him extra special. Last month, my family was invited to check out Blue Man Group in the city. Initially, my son was more excited then all of us at having an opportunity to not only go to his favorite place in the […]

Not Just Another Blogger Conference, It’s Blogger Bash! #BBNYC

HexBugs

If you’ve been blogging for a few years, gone to many blogger conferences as I have, you’re probably over the Blogging 101 and other how to start tutorials.  You might be wondering what the next evolution of your blog may be and if there is anything else for you to learn at a Blogger Conference other than Blogging for Dummies.  I am of the schooling where the learning never ends, but the last few conferences I’ve attended left me wondering what was out there for someone who’s been blogging for as many years as I have been.   That’s where Blogger […]

Dining Delight at Spuntino #SpuntinoWestbury

Spuntino_Stawberry

If you know me, I LOVE FOOD!  The other night my husband and I were treated to one of the most amazing meals we’ve had in a long long time at the all new Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas in Westbury.  Spuntino means snack in Italian, and while my husband is a total meat and potato kind of guy, even he agreed, the dishes at Spuntino needed to be snack size.  Each dish is packed with immense flavor and each deserve a tasting. Some of their standout dishes were: Grilled Shrimp Scampi Bruschetta made with garlic, white wine, butter and […]

Minding your Manners Thanks to the Ritz Carlton Battery Park

etiquette class

When I was growing up proper manners and etiquette were something you learned just as children learn to ride a bike, it was expected, almost like a necessity to turn a year older. My siblings and I were always taught to use our pleases, thank you’s, excuse mes, and sorrie’s. We were expected to hold the door for others, we were required to refer to our elders as Mr. and Mrs. such and such. My grandmother used to push our elbows off the table at dinner time, we were told to sit up straight, and we were ALWAYS required to […]

Clashing with Clash of Clans #COC

clash of clans

The hottest new game/app that’s taking over is Clash of Clans.  Out of no where it is replacing Candy Crush as the new addiction.  I have refused and turned down countless invites, as if I don’t have enough on my plate, to get sucked into these time sucking vortexes.  Alas I don’t judge those who do play although when my husband began, I  raised my eyebrows but kept my mouth shut.  He is entitled to choose his type of fun of course.  When my 10 year old joined his clan and was being taught by him how to play the […]

The B.O.B. Revolution PRO and Revolution Flex – the Latest and Greatest of B.O.B. Strollers #BOBsays

Bob Revolution Pro

It’s not too far fetched to say that we at MomConfessionals are a bit stroller obsessed. I, for one, am always looking for the best stroller to accommodate my family’s ever changing needs. In my defense, my obsession is validated by the amount of walking that we New Yorkers do on a daily basis. On some levels, the type of stroller we use throughout the day is more important than the cars we drive – because in the city, you pretty much get where you need to go by walking there. When B.O.B. Invited us to come check out two […]

For the parent who is still dealing with diapers, or pull-ups: do you always seem to find that your child needs a diaper change in the most in opportune moments?
