Where Harlow Gets Her News
We’ve been receiving The Week Junior every week for about a year, and Harlow looks forward to each issue arriving.
Harlow Wants to Make an Impact for Earth Day
Harlow came home from school really fired up about Earth Day. She decided to create a poster telling people to do the three Rs— reduce, reuse and recycle.
A Little Bit of Magic in Snowy NYC
It had started snowing Sunday night and kept falling for the next 24 hours, blanketing the city in snow. There is nothing I love more than NYC covered in white.
Harlow Baked Her Own Cake for Her 8th Birthday
May we all have the big baking energy of a 8yo who makes a giant doughnut cake for her own birthday, during a pandemic, when she can’t even invite friends over to help her eat it.
Harlow’s Baking Show: Halloween Edition
Harlow bakes Halloween themed sugar cookies, calls melted butter disgusting, screams for napkins, and has Mazzy on as her special guest cookie decorator. Enjoy!
Harlow’s History of Dressing Up Like Fashion Icons on Halloween
Mazzy has a history of dressing up as badass women for Halloween. Harlow, on the other hand, has been dressing up as the world’s biggest style icons since before she could walk.
Celebrating Neve’s 5th Birthday at Home
Since we are still in the middle of a global pandemic, my sister kept the celebration small. They came to our house for the weekend, and then expanded the party to her friends virtually.
Our Plan for School this Fall
Our plan depends on our schools’ plans and NYC’s plan, so nothing seems set in stone. But here’s where we are right now: Mazzy will be doing school remotely, while Harlow attends in-person classes at a new school.
Talking Politics with Harlow
Yesterday, Harlow and I were talking about the upcoming election. I told her that I would be voting for Joe Biden. She had one big question for me. “Is he a good man?”
Letting Go of Unfinished School Projects
I told the kids that school was canceled for the rest of the year. I honestly wasn’t expecting a huge reaction (we’ve assumed this all along), but Harlow got really upset.
Say Hello to Our New Pup!
Her name is Frankie. She is the cutest ever and we all don’t know what to do with ourselves except stare at her PRECIOUS FACE.
Harlow is Officially Our Family Easter Bunny
As per usual, when it comes to holidays, Harlow is ALL IN. I was going to skip Easter this year, since it’s not really our holiday, but Harlow had other plans.
Selling Girl Scout Cookies the Old Fashioned Way
We don’t sell Girl Scout Cookies online. I prefer to make the girls really work for every sale, just like I did when I was a kid.
Harlow’s Panda-Doughnut Baking Birthday Party
At Harlow’s 7th birthday party… there were pandas. There were doughnuts. There were panda doughnuts. Yep, that’s right. We celebrated with a panda doughnut baking party at Freshmade NYC.
Spending New Year’s Eve on the Slopes
We decided to switch it up this year and spend New Year’s Eve in Vermont, skiing, sipping hot chocolate and eating s’mores.
