Teacher Appreciation Day Ideas

Teacher Appreciation Day is one of my favorite days of the year.   There's no one I appreciate more than my kids' teachers.  Having spent 11 years in the classroom, I know that teachers do not need this day to feel appreciated, because most feel

10 Things To Do in April

Verizon Fios Provides Peace of Mind When Working From Home

I have the flexibility to work from home.  However, the only way I could have the freedom to telecommute without having to take the express train into Grand Central every day is to ensure that ALL my communication (emails, calls, video conferences, etc.) and large bandwidth requirements

Three Reasons to Love Club Pilates

BY ERIN I've been taking pilates reformer classes for years.  No matter where I have gone, it involves an extra charge beyond the gym membership, as it's considered private/semi-private group training.  In the past 7-8 years, I have taken these classes at larger gyms such as NYSC,

Lego Parties at Mathnasium

Being the mom of a really girlie girl, I never knew the hours of fun (and quiet) LEGO could provide.  Also never knew that it could (and would) eventually consume my entire first floor.   What started as a shelf for LEGO creations quickly transformed

Apps for Busy Families: iGotThis and Cozi

As parents, we complain that our kids are tech-obsessed and rely too much on their devices, yet we are very much the same.  They spend an excessive amount of time on screens, tablets, connected to wi-fi

Mindfulness Matters Training Class for Parents

I've never been the mom to think that anything worthwhile should come just from the school.  Home is the first school and serves as the most influential place where kids learn.  Formal education is only a piece of the puzzle and anything that's worth doing

Things to Read in Your “Spare Time”

"Spare Time."  What a funny expression.  You've read interviews where someone is asked what they do in their spare time.  Who really has spare time?  We'd all do pretty much anything for some of it!  There's even memes about it. I have a notes section on

Brush Calligraphy Workshop

  Between Paint Nite Parties and Adult Coloring Books, it's clear that artistic expression is an outlet for lots of women.  I started following these calligraphy accounts on Instagram recently.  More than I care to admit. I watch the videos and find them soothing to watch
