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.
Mom, You are No Charli D’Amelio
I used to worry that once Mazzy started paying attention to my Instagram account, she would attach too much importance to “likes” or wonder why some photos got more “likes” than others.
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.
Mazzy has a Future In Meme Creation
Some kids learn math or law or engineering from their parents. My kids learn meme creation.
That Time Mazzy Was Asked to Brag About Herself
In the hallway of Mazzy’s school, student projects often hang outside the classroom. When Mazzy’s work is on the wall, I can’t help but compare hers to the other kids in the class.
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.
Our Remarkably Average Chrismakuh is Actually Pretty Perfect
Four years ago, even though I didn’t know it at the time, an important family tradition was born. It’s not just the giving and the magic. It’s the holiday we host in our home.
Mazzy and Harlow Met the Real Santa
Mazzy has been doubting Santa since last year, but has not fully given up on him yet. While we were waiting for him to come over, she said, “If he’s really Santa, he’ll know my birthday.”
We Rode a Parade Float in New Orleans
Harlow said it was her third favorite day ever, after the day she was born and her first birthday. Mazzy said the experience was tied with our trip to Disney World. MIKE DANCED! I will remember this night as one of my most fun ever.
The Origin Story of “Fashion Panda”
I didn’t know what Harlow meant what she told me she wanted to be “a panda, but fashion.” But come Friday night, I felt foolish for ever doubting her.
Mazzy’s History of Badass Halloween Costumes
One thing I love about Mazzy is that she always uses Halloween as an excuse to dress up as a total badass.
Real Littles VS Mazzy’s Miniatures
Two summers ago, Mazzy started bringing home miniature clay foods that she made in her stop motion class.
