Are you ready for the New School Year?!

20140830-730

For the last 10 months I have been tutoring an amazing 7-year-old, aka the Little Miss, who just needed a little extra encouragement to get her work done and work to her fullest potential. Much of the work we did was homework handouts, spelling words, and reading. Once school was out, it was my job to figure out how to keep the learning fun. I was grateful to discover the new game “Are You Ready For 2nd Grade?” which kept the spirit of summer with a sprinkling of learning. I don’t know who was more excited, the tutor or the […]

Living Effortlessly with Walmart Effortless Meals

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 […]

REVIEW: Wubble Bubble Bubble Fun!

Wubble Bubble

I don’t know anybody who doesn’t love bubbles.  Even at my ripe old age, bubbles are still so much fun and always bring a smile to my face.  When I saw the Wubble Bubble at the fabulous EA Social Suite at Blogger Bash I knew we had to have one.  Everyone who got to play with it and interact with the wubble was all smiles. It is a giant bubble that doesn’t burst!  Made from a unique thermo-stretch material, the Wubble™ bubble ball’s patent-pending technology makes it squishy, strong and incredibly lightweight. Kids can kick it, slam it, throw it, bounce it, smoosh […]

FREE or almost free Activities to Keep the Kids BUSY – AMEN!

Bronx Zoo

Camp is expensive.  I don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on camp every year and its tough.  3 kids while working full time is a hard struggle.  Every summer we just wing it and before you know it summer is already over.  One of the perks about living in NYC is full of fun, enriching and FREE events to keep you and your kids busy.  In between visits to the zoo and the aquarium with our WCS Family Premium Membership (best value and amazing deal!), trips to the beach with friends we are taking the city up on their […]

World Oceans Day Celebration at the NY Aquarium #WorldOceansDay

DSC_0087

Even before kids my husband and I love going to the aquarium.  My husband always had a fish tank for as long as I’ve known him.  He grew from a love of fresh water fish to the more colorful and beautiful salt water fish and corals.  The ocean plays a big part in our lives where vacations always involve water and beach in one manner or another.  One of our first trips together when dating was a diving trip in Hawaii.  I was in complete awe of this beautiful majestic and powerful thing called the ocean.  It’s sad where you open […]
