The girls FINALLY had their last day of school yesterday. For the summer, we focus on a lot of outdoor activities like swimming, biking, climbing, swinging and you know — playing. We do, however, have to keep the balance and make sure the girls don’t fall into the summer “slide”. Just in time for summer, Scholastic launches their Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge with free summer reading resources for parents like me and you to keep reading and learning fun — even during their summer “vacation”: Online summer reading program for kids: You can register your kids (grades K–8 or ages 4–14) for the…

It’s finally summer and that means many family trips to the beach both near and far. We are planning on hitting beaches in Turks & Caicos, Long Island and the Jersey Shore this summer.

Family Activity in New York: Dinosaur Safari at The Bronx Zoo

0

The last time I was at the Bronx Zoo, it was over 30 years ago and I was with my grandma. It was a hot, sticky New York City day and we took a long NYC bus ride over from her apartment in Washington Heights. Living in New York City for over 22 years with two young girls, I have yet to go back (except for one spectacular wedding!) and experience The Bronx Zoo of the 21st century because from what I’m hearing it’s got amazing, interactive experiences. What is the Dinosaur Safari at The Bronx Zoo? For example, back…

My husband’s birthday is coming up and it’s always so annoying figuring out what to get him for his birthday. I mean, I know what I would get him for his birthday, like those amazing pair  of boots, the handsome watch, or even the NYC subway token cufflinks that I pinned on my “For The Hubby” Pinterest board. This year, he made my life a little easy. He told me what he wanted: tickets to the New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers game. He’s a simple guy. And thanks to ScoreBig.com, I was able to get him exactly what he wanted —…

My Eco Reusable Bags Perfect for Earth Day and Every Day

0

It’s Earth Day and it’s a reminder of the many things that we could do to help maintain our mother earth for our children and our children’s children. A simple way to help is by using those reusable plastic bags that you know you have in your closet. If you know that you are going to the grocery store or to the farmer’s market, just pop one into your purse or your car. I learned about My Eco reusable bags through a friend. It was started by Kristen Brown whose father, Gordon Dancy, patented one of the first versions of the plastic grocery bag. His invention helped coin the…

Results of our LISTERINE 21 Day Challenge

0

Twenty-one days ago, I started the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge. I was hesitant, but hopeful that my family and I would do this. At the very least, I knew that I could do it. I was more doubtful that our girls would keep it up. I mean, I can hardly get them to brush their teeth — but, brush, floss and swish with a mouthwash, too? Forget about it. I was COMPLETELY WRONG. Not only did they do and complete the LISTERINE 21 Day Challenge, but they were completely enthusiastic about it. Truly. I wouldn’t lie to you. When I told…
