I did it all by myself – 9000+ miles/26 hours in the air with a 17 month old.

Wow, have me and Miles Storm been on a journey! It all started Monday afternoon when we missed our flight to visit my family and friends in Australia. Not sure how it really happened but we thought we were flying out on the Tuesday, not the Monday. Thanks to my husband, we managed to get on a flight the next afternoon experiencing SO MUCH STRESS to accomplish that.

TriBeCa Pediatrics – Dr Wittek is the Proof in the Pudding!

Is there any other Pediatrician to go to if you live in Williamsburg other than TriBeCa Pediatrics? If there is, I do not know about it, but considering they are only a few blocks from our apartment I cannot say that I’ve ever looked for another.

Tribeca Pediatrics has been at 212 Berry Street for about 4 years. They are also located on the Upper East Side, Chelsea, Park Slope, Harlem, Greenpoint, Long Island City and of course TriBeCa where they originated 10 years ago.

Nothing like a CAT Scan on a Sunday morning!

Last night when Miles Storm finished up bath time and was getting towled off, he slipped on the wet floor, fell backwards and hit his head. I tried to catch him but didn’t make it in time. He was really upset, but eventually calmed down and went to sleep for the night. This morning when he woke up, I breastfed him and not long after that he started vomiting every 10 minutes. After about an hour of this we knew we had to take him to the hospital. One thing you learn being a new parent is that children fall, and they are usually okay. When he was born we freaked out about everything and have been known to take him to the ER for things that seem a little silly, (in retrospect).

Flying Squirrel on North 6th Street!

CHILDREN GROW SO FAST!

I am trying, my hardest, to sell some of Miles Storm’s equipment that he has grown out of and is now sitting around our apartment gathering dust – a gorgeous white Alma cot, a exersaucer and a Mamaroo! I’ve advertised on many websites to no avail. So when another Mother told me about Flying Squirrel as a great resource to sell “gently used” clothing/equipment I headed down to North 6th to check out the store.

The first of it’s kind in the whole wide world – Brooklyn Children’s Museum!

It is raining in Williamsburg today, not a very pleasant day to be outside, so I took Miles Storm to the Brooklyn Childrens Museum at 145 Brooklyn Avenue in Crown Heights. If it was a nice day I could in theory walk, it is only 4 miles away, but either way you have to walk through a dodgy part of town, near Bed-Stuy, and that is not such a good idea.
