Summer events and things to do in and around Boston
I don’t know about you, but I love a good park playdate. The kids get to run wild and free with their friends, we all get a little fresh air and vitamin D, and I get to chat with another mama. I’ve spent a lot of time looking for parks in and near Boston that have […]
The summer is in full swing, and it’s possible you’re already feeling strapped for time. There’s a ton to cram in to the handful of nice-weather months we are guaranteed here in Boston, right? I’m here to urge you to add one more trip to your list anyway. Yep… another thing to pack and unpack […]

I took a first-aid course two years ago, which covered everything from head injuries to tick bites to broken arms. In the time that has passed since that class, I’ve often wondered […]
I’m calling summer 2017 the “Summer of the Great Experiment.” The girls and I are heading up to sleepy midcoast Maine for the full 10 weeks, and my husband is splitting his time between our cottage there and our home in Boston. Our youngest daughter will be with me full time, as usual, and our older […]
It’s that time! Summer time! We’ve got a great list to keep you busy every day and night! What’s on your “must do” list for this Boston summer?

A group of moms hurried in to preschool pickup, many of us lugging younger siblings, scaling the stairs to the classroom with careful hurry. One mother turned toward the group and said, “I can’t believe there’s only one more month left in the school year. I’m dreading having the kids home all summer.” Other moms […]
