Spring Themed Crafts & Treats with Wonderful Halos #MTHalosFun #ad


It takes a lot to keep us indoors on the weekends here in New York, with so much to do we're typically out and about looking to start a new adventure & it's always a must to have a few sweet treats on hand to energize us throughout the day. Bonus points if it's something that's not only tasty but healthy to boot! That's the wonderful thing about Halos, they're juicy and sweet and definitely a favorite among my citrus loving boys! This month my oldest & mini me CJ and I headed out on one of the windiest days in New York to enjoy a morning of spring time crafting at the Children's Museum of the Arts.

MYTHBUSTERS the Explosive Exhibition at the Liberty Science Center #MTMyth #LilMonstersinNYC #ad


"Science isn't just for scientists and people in lab coats - it's something that everybody can do everyday", those words sound like something my MythBusters loving husband would say but this was in fact the sentiment of Dan Tapster, Executive Producer of the Discovery Channel Show "MYTHBUSTERS". As a former elementary and preschool teacher and a mama to two boys one in grade school, the other in middle school I couldn't agree more. Children should recognize lessons on science in the world around them and the daily activities they partake in. The New "MYTHBUSTERS, Explosive Exhibition {running through September 2017} at the Liberty Science center encourages an interactive, hands on experience that will inspire curiosity in kids of all ages.

2-for-1 Tickets to see "In Transit" on Broadway in Support of the Children's Health Fund #ad


Did you know that 3.3 million children in the United States have no health insurance? I kid you not, over the last two months alone we have had way more visits to the pediatrician for both of our lil' monsters than I recall in a very long time. It got to the point where all our pediatrician would say was "back again?". As soon as one kid stopped sneezing rockets of cooties, the other would start coughing up everything inside of him and as I type this our youngest is battling high fevers & binge watching Netflix as he let's the ibuprofen work it's magic. Tristan has earned himself an extended midwinter break as most NYC kids headed back to the classroom today, as a former teacher I'd never be that parent to send my sick child back to school masked by pain medicine.

Our pediatrician had prescribed medication that wasn't covered by our insurance and was a whopping $60 or so, which isn't a lot of money per say but for "cough medicine" I can't imagine needing to have those orders filled so frequently. Just consider the anxiety families with no health insurance must deal with when faced with the symptoms of everyday colds, the flu, chronic illnesses and more. Thankfully for the last 25 years the Children's Health Fund has been battling barriers to health care for homeless and other low-income children.

3 Reasons Why You'll Love Watching Jungle Jim's Musical Adventures with your Child & A Special Offer for Readers #ad



This post is part of a sponsored campaign for Jungle Jim - A Musical Wildlife Adventure. I received compensation for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own.


No matter the season my boys are always asking if they can go to our local zoo, especially our youngest who is completely fascinated by each animal's characteristics and abilities. 
We even joined a nature club at the Bronx zoo & joined other families as we explored the plants and surroundings in the rain and snow & toured the exhibits to learn about an array of creatures. It was a lot of fun but let's be honest, weekly trips to the zoo aren't always feasible so we're always on the look out for educational books and programming like Jungle Jim's Musical Adventures to encourage our kids to think about the world around them and the creatures that inhabit our planet out in the wild and that are cared for in their favorite zoo's and aquariums.

Enter to Win a Fandago Card to see The Lego Batman Movie in NYC for Free


Gotham's winged-cape crusading vigilante who loves darkness and who's surprisingly a fan of his alone time in red silk robes while binge watching romantic comedies {like When Harry Met Sally for instance} may love to rid the city of evil solo, but at some point will realize that one is truly the loneliest number. The Lego Batman movie is a must see with or without the kids if you are a fan of the classic brick toys and DC comic characters.
