Why Miles Storm cannot eat Gluten – Sweet Potato & Carrot with Brown Rice Pasta.

My 22 month-old Son is going through a phase where he loves Pasta. He walks around the apartment saying “Pasta Pasta” in the cutest baby voice a Mum has ever heard. As I am on a “Cooking Roll” this week, today for lunch I made him Sweet Potato & Carrot Sauce with Gluten- Free Brown Rice Pasta. He loved it!

Let’s visit the Prospect Park Wonderland in Brooklyn!

Last week, I decided to take Miles Storm on a day trip to Prospect Park, which is in Brooklyn about 4 miles from where we live in Williamsburg. It was a pleasant day, he’d slept in late (amazing as therefore so did I) and as a result we had missed his morning art-class meaning that I had to come up with another activity to keep him entertained.

Raw Juicing is the Way to Go

I love to juice fresh raw organic fruits, herbs and vegetables.

As we have a swimming pool and a lake on the family property upstate NY it was a priority for my husband and I to start our Son Swimming lessons as soon as possible. I knew about the Williamsburg/Greenpoint located Aqua Beba Swim School and wanted to check out their vibe and do a drop-in lesson before we committed. Fair enough I thought? Read More Willy B Mum

My organic MiYim Eco-Plush toy obsession

When I was pregnant I did a lot of reading – I had recently been let go from my job as a Director of Events at Night Agency in Soho, (where I had been for 6 years), so I had plenty of free time on my hands which I really did not know what to do with?

Being Holistic Minded, and while putting together my baby shower gift registry I Read More Willy B Mum

Gorgeous Day upstate NY today

My family is fortunate that we divide our time between living upstate NY in Rhinebeck on the weekends, and during the week in the city in Williamsburg Brooklyn. We have been doing this for 6 years now. Every Friday, we head upstate, and Monday we return to the bustling city. It is a lot of time commuting, however it is definitely worth Read More Willy B Mum

Let’s talk about my friends over at The Parent Maze!

One of my most supportive Twitter followers since I started Willy B Mum, 6 months ago, has been The Parent Maze, so today I am dedicating some time to give them the same vibe back.

What is The Parent Maze I hear you ask? First of all let’s point out that they are growing at SPEED as a resource to help parents in NYC find classes and services – from doulas and Read More Willy B Mum
