Thank you, Dorel Home Products, for sponsoring this post and for creating sleep-friendly furniture!No one loves sleeping on the couch. Or the air mattress. But what about a sleeper sofa? With a memory foam mattress!
I don’t like Easter. There, I said it. I have nothing against egg-laying bunnies, fancy baskets, or the resurrection of Jesus. It’s just that grief is a long, difficult process. Easter brings up many, many memories of my over-the-top, holiday-loving dad. Like that time he put his Styrofoam cup of coffee a little too close […]

What’s a mom to do? Kindergarten has introduced a whole new level of birthday complexity into the mix. A worrying trend has appeared. I call it… the birthday factory. It is the antithesis of days of yore when kids just came over to your house to celebrate your birthday. There was cake and maybe some […]
We are so grateful that we were able to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and are thankful to Disney and all of the sponsors for this experience. Our whole family had an amazing time and would cruise again in a heartbeat. I’m worried the Disney Cruise has officially ruined us for any other […]
It was December, and my daughter was a happy 5-month-old. I had this new mom thing down, for the most part. Breastfeeding was hard, but I had found my groove. I am a chronic migraine sufferer, and sleep deprivation is a big trigger for them, so we were thankful to have a night nurse help […]
I’d like to bring my children to some Easter activities without freezing my (bunny) tail off in the process. Here are a few Easter events that are indoors.

Our mission is to connect with the Boston community both online and offline and to share this journey of motherhood with each other!

My daughter just turned 13. From everything I’ve been reading about what it’s like to parent a teenager, you’d think I’d be running for the hills or finding a good therapist. I’m not going to lie — it’s definitely more challenging to have an older child in the home who has strong opinions, heightened emotions, […]
In my family, birthdays were always a big deal. We celebrated for weeks leading up to it, and certainly the week of it. My daughter recently turned 4. My parents were here from out of town, so the celebrations were even more special — ’cause grandparents. The biggest question when family is in town is, […]
Thank you, Nielsen Neuro Labs, for sponsoring this post and for the great opportunity for moms! I recently did a consumer neuroscience study at Nielsen Lab in Boston. It was easy, quick, fun, and interesting — and it gave me a break from my tiny humans. I got paid $100 for watching a commercial. At […]
I hope to preserve this innocence of childhood as long as possible — and to keep remembering to share laughs with my kids through it all!
