Before we get into surviving confinement with kids… WE WROTE A BOOK! I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THE SUPPORT!Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us on Instagram the past couple of days, and a big, big THANK YOU to everyone supporting this little passion project by ordering copies of the book + sharing it […]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?
So let me stick to what I know best. Boys.
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
This year, we kept Easter super simple, relaxed, and all about the kids. It was our best one yet!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
Update: These past couple of weeks (five, to be exact), all I’ve been doing is prioritizing. In other words, all I’ve been doing is cuddling with my little guy. He’s all about skin to skin and eating (and, by that, I mean every hour or two during the day), so my routine has pretty much […]Read More
You want to know something? I’m not one of those people who makes a list of resolutions every year. I never vow to go to the gym 4-5 times per week, cut out gluten from my diet, or spend at least every other Sunday with family. I just never believed in the idea of coming […]Read More

Happy Thanksgiving, Mamas! Hope your bellies are full (mine certainly is) and that you spent the day with those you love. Check out my Thanksgiving post for Westchester County Moms Blog!Read More
The most difficult realization I’ve come to in the last few weeks is that, soon, Liam will no longer have our undivided attention. He’ll have to share us with a little human who can’t yet communicate, cries a lot, and monopolizes Mommy’s time. He’ll realize that he often has to play independently to let us […]Read More
Another month, another roundup! When you find a gem, it’s selfish not to share, right? Here are my picks for the month for November: I found this ArtNaturals set purely by accident and thought, why not? I’ll give it a shot. Turns out it has now become a staple in our home and an essential part […]Read More

Even before I started reading Wild Things: The Art of Nurturing Boys by Stephen James and David Thomas, I already knew that little boys were nothing like little girls. It was obvious from our earliest play dates, simply observing the way my son and his little friends interacted with the world. I’d watch, in awe, […]Read More
Hi guys! We’ve been so incredibly busy this week with Liam and appointments (so sorry for being MIA!), but it was so worth it. We found out some incredible news 🙂 and couldn’t be happier to finally know the gender of our little baby to be! When I was pregnant with Liam, my husband was adamant on […]Read More
Hi Mamas! Today, Joe and I are celebrating our relationship, our family, and the home we built together. Three years have flown by, and quite a lot has changed since that summer day we exchanged our vows with our feet in the sand and the push and pull of waves in the distance. Actually… Everything […]Read More
Hi Moms! Check out my post featured on Westchester County Moms this month! What are some of your mom tips to stay on top of your busy lives?Read More
He doesn’t care if everyone in the store is looking at him as he makes chicken and monkey noises at the top of his lungs. Our kids aren’t trapped, like we are, in our adult shells. If there’s any advice I can learn from my son, it’s to have more fun. Who cares what anyone else thinks? Check […]Read More
A mother doesn’t become a mother overnight – she evolves, adapts, shedding skin after skin. The day those two pink lines appeared, so literally, matter-of-factly, before my eyes, I met the woman I’d soon become. You made me me, and I thank you for it. . . . You know you’re a mom when your […]Read More
I never thought that “time-out” would be my thing until that one play date where Liam, my almost two-year-old, decided to experiment with hitting and pulling other kids’ hair. There was literally nothing I could do to stop him – he was in that kind of mood, a feisty, assertive mood I had never seen him in […]Read More
Even if you were fortunate enough to never experience true, debilitating anxiety before having children, I’m sure you’ve realized by now that motherhood comes with quite a bit of baggage in the stress department. It seems as if all we do as moms is worry about our kids… then worry some more. We lose sleep […]Read More
