Let’s Get Physical

Happy Back to School

Happy Back to School

  By now, most kids have returned to their classrooms. And so it starts! Another year of books, activities, and for a lot of kids – stress. This year, I am trying a more relaxed approach to the time after school. We have selected just […]

Anya’s One Year Stats

Anya’s One Year Stats

I know I promised some tutorials but my camera and server malfunctioned and I had to take a break from too much frustrating technology. I took Anya to the doctor on Tuesday for her one year appointment. Her stats are as follows: Height: 31.25″ (96%) […]

Happy Friday: Bella Dances to Nicki Minaj

Happy Friday: Bella Dances to Nicki Minaj

Oh man…Bella has been obsessed, I mean OBSESSED, with “Starships” – the song by Nicki Minaj. Every chance she gets, she grabs Zack’s phone and blasts the song. She sings along sometimes, but mostly she dances. No, she rocks out. I mean, she interrupted her […]

Spring and Getting in Shape

Spring and Getting in Shape

Oh crap. This card made me laugh out loud…Boy, it’s almost May and I am NO WHERE near in swimsuit shape. I’m not even in shorts and a tank top shape! After I had Anya, the weight seemed to melt off, only to come packing […]

Yesterday afternoon, Bella’s dance shoes came in. I have not seen something this cute in a while. Seriously, teeny tiny ballet slippers and teeny tiny tap shoes! I was so excited to open the boxes and they didn’t disappoint. Oh Capezio, how I’ve missed opening […]

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday and Happy Labor Day Weekend!!! I don’t know hat you all are up to, but we’re going camping. Camping, you ask? With a not-yet- two year old? It gets better. We’re going with TWO, count ’em, TWO toddlers. This is a family trip. […]

Coolest Bandaids EVER

Coolest Bandaids EVER

Bella loves a good boo boo. She will actually inflict wounds (by “falling” on the sidewalk and scraping her knees) in order to have a boo to show off. She prides herself on them! Now, I found the AWESOMEST bandaids to cover up the beautiful […]

Urban Camping

Urban Camping

Do you live in New York City? Do you dream of going camping in the summertime? Do you feel stranded in the urban jungle with no way to get out to the real jungle in order to sleep under the stars? Well, the New York […]
