  If you are a parent of toddlers, chances are, you are very familiar with all of the characters from Sesame Street.

Sesame Street Live “Make a New Friend” will be making a highly anticipated appearance at Madison Square Garden beginning on Thursday February 19th – Sunday March 1st. This year’s show is all about meeting new friends when Elmo, Grover, Abby and many more […]

REVIEW: The Armadillo City

peekaboo

A clever name for the very clever Mamas & Papas Armadillo City!  Yes this mom got a chance to review yet another stroller, and this one is love.  If you’ve been following along, you know that I am all about compact.  The smaller packaging does it for me all the time now.  I simply can’t turn back!  The Armadillo City stroller is in their compact lightweight stroller category.  Coming in at only 15 pounds, it rivals any umbrella stroller.  Geared towards city families, I think it also bodes well for suburban families like my own.  While I definitely could get a […]

REVIEW: Big Hero 6 #FandangoFamily #BigHero6

GO! RUN! YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!  This is the next FROZEN.  I am insanely crazy about this movie.  I was given the opportunity to screen this movie a few weeks ago and I have to say going in the only thing I knew about the movie was that my 4 year old really really really wanted to see this movie.  I have no idea how he knew about the movie, but he has been asking for weeks if we could see this movie when it came out. Unfortunately, the screening was at the start of his bedtime… on a school […]

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

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 […]
