Growing up in the Big Apple, I never had the opportunity to embrace all that the city had to offer, not until the moment I became a mom.  See, when you become a parent you too become a kid at heart. So when I was invited to see STOMP with my 7 year old, in New York’s Orpheum Theatre located at 126 Second Avenue at 8thStreet, I was beyond excited. You see, Stomp is an award-winning international sensation that has been around for decades.  So having the opportunity to take my 7 year old to see this phenomenon was pure excitement....

Yep, I’m one of those moms. The kind of mom who watches her (almost) 7 year old walk two feet away to school, a mom that eagerly anticipates those emails about being class parent or class chaperone or class parent something oh and remember the time that I fought a two year old ? Oh yea, there are things that I hate admitting doing as a Mom for the sake of my kids but, I guess the first step is admitting it right??! Now with my oldest in summer camp, having a total blast, who would have expected a mommy melt down?  NO PARENTS CHAPERONE...

In about 11 days the family and I will be traveling to the new Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania. And we are super excited!  We have never been to an indoor water park before so we are super excited to experience this “first” as a family. I love a good family road trip.  So when you combine the thrills of an 100,000 square foot indoor waterpark, spa and Family Entertainment Center, I’m sold! Showing the boys pictures of what is awaiting us during the long holiday weekend, has...

And say no more to oversized bags…. And Hello to Hip Appeal !   Here I’m rocking the Black Fanny Pack (Carbon Zipper) S/M  Made especially...

Being able to keep up with two active kids can be a daunting task…from dropping them off to after school clubs or to playdates can be a bit overwhelming but it doesn’t have to be so hard..and here’s why. ...

As an active mom I am always on the hunt for accessories that are able to make my errand runs, playground visits and even workouts a breeze, especially with kids in tow.  So when I had the opportunity to try out the Relay™ Click Connect™ Travel System I just knew that this was an immediate hit with not only with me but with my little one. ...

If it’s your first time exploring New York, one of the easiest ways to get familiar with the iconic landmarks of the city is to take a guided tour and that’s where CitySights NY can help. Last week I had the opportunity to hop on the CitySights NY Twilight Cruise (90-minutes) and took in the sights of New York.  Even though I grew up in NY (Brooklyn to be exact!) going on the CitySights tour was a huge treat and is indeed now one of my favorite things to do. ...
