My most asked question of all time is: “Why on earth would you move to New York from the Caribbean?” Obviously, it was for my studies… not the climate. I never expected to stay in the Northeast, but I met my husband sophomore year and the rest is history. I always tell him that the […]Read More

So I’m not even going to pretend I know a single thing about gifts for girls. As a matter of fact, I always slightly panic when I do have to find something for a little girl Liam’s age. Like, what are they into? Barbies? Do Polly Pockets still exist?! And for the love of God, what the hell is an LOL Doll?

I’m a boy mama, and have perused the Amazon Prime boy selection too many times to count. So here I am bringing you the best in online finds for boys ages 2-6.
You’re very welcome.Read More

“I’ll be a boy mom one day. I just know it.” Even in high school, I would always assure my friends that I’d be the one with the mini van full of soccer gear in the trunk. The one complaining about bedrooms reeking of dirty socks and too much Axe spray. It wasn’t like I […]Read More
