Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

I met this vendor at two different holiday events; one in Westchester and one in Greenwich.  I was shocked that these "mommy necklaces" had not taken off in Westchester.   Another vendor in the area sells them too.  I purchased a necklace from each of

10 Things To Do in April

We don't keep a calendar of events.   We considered it and realized that every other site has one and that's where people go for "things to do."  However, the other sites usually list things for the kids-- Not the moms.  So we've decided to publish

Westchester Woman Wednesday: Meet Aleesia Forni

Shawna and I go to a lot of restaurants. Some are chef's tastings or new seasonal menu previews and others are full service meals or grand openings.  It's always an interesting assortment of guests and we often wonder afterwards who created the guest list.   We leave

Hire A Line Sitter for Hamilton Tickets

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

Cookie Dough….Delivered.

I love structure, schedules and plans.  But I also love being creative and spontaneous, sharing a good find when I want to.  I realized last week that I have been lacking in the "eat" posts and made it a priority for this week.   I've

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

Smart Things to Do in NYC

Every Friday night, I look over the topics that we've posted to go out in our e-blast on Saturday morning and I notice that I didn't touch on every single category (eat, shop, play.)  In an ideal world, I would post 3 times each week,

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
