Emotional Ups and Downs of ‘Inside Out’ #FandangoFamily

Joy & Sadness

If there is one movie you should take your child to this holiday weekend, let it be Inside Out. My family and I had a chance to see a Director’s Cut during the Disney Social Media Moms Conference in April and while our preview was only 75% of the movie, it gave us so much to think about and my kids were dying to see the rest of it. When we finally got a chance to see Inside Out opening weekend, to say we were left speechless in an understatement.  It had all the beauty and wit that we have […]

IMG_4206

Now that baseball season has returned, my boys are thrilled that the NY Mets are back and better than before. Most of you already know that we are long standing Mets fans but as a mom, there are plenty more reasons for me to love the NY Mets. For one, the organization cares about its fans. There are so many memories made at the stadium that make a trip into Queens to see a game totally worth it. My family had the privilege of witnessing this year’s first Mets #FamilySunday home game at Citi Field. While my kids have been to […]

Mr. Met’s Kids Club is Back and Better Than Ever! #metsmoms

get-attachment

It’s finally spring time and for my family that can only mean one thing: baseball is back! For those of you who have been following through the years, it’s safe to say you are aware that we favor the NY Mets in my home, but as a mom, being a Mets fan isn’t just about the team. While I’m all about David Wright and the Amazin’ Mets, as parents, the game is as much about my family’s enjoyment of a day spent together at the ballpark, as it is about who wins. Being at Citi Field to take in a […]

Curing the Spring Break Fever by Going HOME #FandangoFamily

home_the_Movie

So our family didn’t have any glamorous travel plans this spring break.  Instead it was filled with supplementary workbooks and sprinkled in with a few playdates.  Not that the weather helped at all either, spring seems to not have received notice that it is indeed SPRING.  Ever eager to make the most of things, and provide some memorable playdates without pulling a Martha Stewart, I let my daughter pick a few close friends for a movie date. If you haven’t seen the movie HOME yet, you must.  It’s a heartwarmingly sweet movie about the meaning of friendship and family.  It […]
