What To Do for New Parents in the First Month

April 23, 2019

If you listen to our podcast, Mom and Dad Made a Podcast, you know our best friends, Jake and Leah, recently became parents. Putting my emotions into words as I watch this immense transformation has honestly been hard for me. It’s been one of those life changing, pivotal moments for two of the people Zack and I care the most about and on top of it, we know it will change our friendship with them in the best way. Because, well, they’re part of the parent club now! There’s a whole new element of life we can all relate on and lets just say I can pretty much cry at the drop of a hack. So many emotions!

What to Do in NYC with Kids: The Bronx Zoo

April 19, 2019

A couple months ago Zack and I were talking about what we could really try to encourage Owen to get into next. He’s beyond obsessed with numbers, colors, letters and shapes, truly cannot get enough of any mode of transportation and loves to read and do crafts, but we noticed that we haven’t exposed him to as much about animals as we could. He can identify most, the sounds the make and so on, but living in NYC means we have access to one of the best zoos in the country and we decided we need to make visiting more of a habit!

Prioritizing Our Marriage in the Midst of My Pregnancy

April 17, 2019

Is it just me or have each of your closest relationships gone through an adjustment phase at the start of each pregnancy? Whether it’s your first baby or your fourth, life as you know begins to change and at least for Zack and I it takes a little time to find our groove again and re-establish who we are in this seemingly new relationship. It happened when I was pregnant with Owen and it happened / is happening again with June.

An Intentional Dining Room Makeover for Our Growing Family

April 10, 2019

Hosting dinners and folks in general in NYC isn’t very common. Most of our living spaces are so small that the closest coffee shop or bar acts as an extension of your home and it’s rare that you actually invite friends or family over to your house or apartment. That being said, it’s always been different for us. When we moved back to Brooklyn last year we made it a priority to have the space to host the people we love the most and we’re so happy we did, even if it meant moving to a neighborhood a little further out. We’ve found since becoming parents that this is our ticket to remaining social when our nights are revolving around 7pm bedtime routines and often, unruly toddlers.

How to Deep Clean Your Home with a Toddler By Your Side

April 9, 2019

This post was sponsored by P&G Home Care.

Call it nesting or spring cleaning, but I have been in a deep cleaning kind of mood. You know, buying all the storage containers I can find, donating the clothes and other items we don’t need and cleaning like it’s my actual day job. I’m not sure about your kids but as long as I’m on my feet and doing something productive in the apartment, Owen is much more likely to let me be than if I’m on my computer. It’s like he knows I’m trying to work, you know?

Dairy-Free Morning Glory Muffins for the Whole Family

April 8, 2019

We continue to introduce new foods to Owen, always try to give him a little of what we’re eating, but despite our best efforts he’s been on a serious kick of fruit, yogurt and carbs for a long time. I’ve chatted with chefs and dietary experts, all of whom have been super reassuring that Owen’s eating habits will in fact change (he can’t eat this many peanut butter sandwiches for all of eternity) and that where we’re at isn’t as bad as it can get when it comes to toddlers and their pickiness. Parents of picky eaters I see you, I hear you, we will survive!
