Get the Sillies Out with Yo Gabba Gabba!

Once upon a time, and not too long ago, on any given weekend night my husband and I would surely be out and about in New York City at a party, a nightclub, an event, or a bar. This was our life. We were hands-down the life of every party, and up till the crack-of-dawn with the best of the Partiers.

Of course, this was before our Son, Miles Storm was born and we became parents – things change so fast once that happens doesn’t it?

Something Wonderful happened in New York last night…. yes the the magical Land Of Nod opened in SOHO!

Something magical happened in New York City last night – right bang smack in the middle of a snow blizzard – my favorite children’s store, The Land of Nod, opened as a Pop-Up in SOHO downtown Manhattan.

And, I am beyond excited!

I am fortunate to have been invited to the official opening, and I have to tell you it was crazy out. It was a full-blown freezing cold blizzard but that did not stop me. I was going to get there no matter what!

Ring A Ding Ding is Beautiful!

Last week Miles Storm and I were invited (by Mama Drama NY) to attend the colorful English production “Ring A Ding Ding” at The New Victory Theater in Times Square NYC. And, I am so glad we went!

I was pretty impressed myself. It was such a beautiful experience to be apart of.

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. I have lived in NYC for 10 years, and Prospect Park has been one of the places I have always wanted to visit however it never happened – the same with The Intrepid and the American Museum of Natural History. Now that Miles Storm is here it looks like all that will finally manifest, as goodness knows I have tried to convince my husband to tag along with me for years to no avail!
