Just a Spoonful of Stonyfield

Stonyfield yobaby selfies

Andrew, Andrew, Andrew. What am I going to do with you? How could something that started out as dainty and innocent as a little cup of Stonyfield yogurt turn into such an organic mess? Dude, I gave you a spoon. This is YoToddler – toddlers eat with utensils. Or so I thought. There is no […]

A 21 Day Challenge

Listerine 21-Day Challenge

Did you know that February is National Children’s Dental Health Month? One of my biggest concerns about parenting in this house is oral health. “Did you brush your teeth?” Growing up, there were plenty of nights when I “forgot” to brush my teeth and I certainly paid the consequences. I never flossed, I hated going […]

5 Tips for Your Trip to Great Wolf Lodge

5 Tips for the Great Wolf Lodge. What to pack for an amazing family getaway!

The Stow kids were completely in shock last Thursday afternoon when I picked them up early from school for “dentist appointments.” “Why is Daddy in the car?” “Why are there bags in the back?” “Where are we going?” After a full day of skiing at Wachusett on Monday, followed by two consecutive snow days for […]

Tieks Review

Wild copper tieks in their packaging. They can be yours from tieks.com and in your mailbox in 48 hours. Styles and colors are out of this world and I can't say enough good things about their customer service.

Tieks. I fell in love with those aqua blue soles the minute I laid eyes on them. Had to have them. Someday. Now let me start by saying I despise high heels and will very seldom be caught wearing them because they absolutely kill my feet. No matter what brand I try and how cute […]

The Hermitage Club at Haystack Mountain

The Hermitage Club at Haystack Mountain is a private ski club in Deerfield Valley Vermont. Skiing Haystack without lines and crowds is out of this world. But is it worth the hefty price tag of a $65,000 initial membership?

Fresh powder blanketed the Deerfield Valley Region just 24 hours before we arrived at the Hermitage Club for a skiing experience of a lifetime which included an up close and personal look at their new clubhouse which recently opened on December 12, 2014. The brand new clubhouse is breathtaking and magnificent with four levels that […]

Millis Wonderland Christmas Display

Millis Wonderland Display of Lights

Headed out to catch one last glimpse of Millis Wonderland in its final year? Yikes! Be prepared for a very long line of cars waiting to reach the property. We went last night on a school night, left Foxboro at 7pm after dance and did not get home until after 10pm. We waited 90 minutes […]

Rudolph The Musical in Boston Review

Rudolph 2014 Shubert Theatre

We shlepped through whipping winds and giant puddles as the sheets of cold, wet rain were coming in sideways through our unsteady umbrellas, but we made it to opening night of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical. I was skeptical, mainly due to the weather and it put me in a bad mood, but the […]
