“Willy B” – Let’s Run a 5KM for the charity *Girls On the Run*

I have run, for exercise, close to 15 years now. I enjoy running. With this in mind, today I decided to do something I have always wanted to do on a professional level, and that is properly train to run a 5KM. I am very excited about it, especially as the 5KM is for children’s charity – Girls On The Run. It also helps that I can take my Son with me to the preparation workouts each week.

Traditional pediatric or a holistic pediatric, both works for us

Is there any other Pediatrician to go to if you live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn 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 in the (New York City area) 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.

Brekkie at “Egg” on North 5th!

Me and my husband have tried to eat at Egg for about 4 years now, seriously! Every time we visited; they were too busy and the wait was too long. Not today though, we were there right on opening at 8AM and able to get a table! Amazing. Apparently others had the same idea as within the next 20 minutes the restaurant was full. There were another 3 families with Little Ones and thankfully there were enough high-chairs to go around.

Farm to Baby – I Love Your Vibe.

I heard about Farm to Baby through my twitter feed – the Internet is a wonderful thing! I read a ReTweet saying that they were going to be at the Greenpoint / McCarren Park Greenmarket last weekend. I was excited, being a fit and health conscious Mum I knew I had to go and check out their vibe.

Revisiting Frolic Rock n Roll play space!

So happy to write that me and Miles Storm were able to revisit Frolic Play Space again for a second time today, and the experience was nothing short of perfect!

We were warmly greeted by co-founders Carey and Julia who started on their dream of opening a Children’s community-feel play space 2 years ago! That’s a long time waiting for the doors to finally open on January 9th just past. It is also so exciting for them, and for all the children in the “Willy B” area who are lucky enough to spend time Rocking out at their venue!

“Puppetsburg” at The Brick Theater!

Right off the bat, Puppetsburg WAS SO MUCH FUN. Miles Storm had a Ball. A Very Very Big Ball!

I heard about the Baby Puppetsburg show from another Mum in my building. I have had it on my list of things to investigate since I started this blog, and today Miles Storm and I finally made it over to East Williamsburg, to The Brick Theater located at 575 Metropolitan, to check it out. I feel like I am in East Williamsburg a lot these days. There is so much going on for Little Ones over there.

“Dancing Toddlers” at Williamsburg Movement & Arts Center.

Miles Storm has always loved to dance, and with this in mind I signed him up for a “Dancing Toddlers” trial class at the Williamsburg Movement and Arts Center #WMAC. The trial class was $10 which I booked it a week in advance. I find $10 to be extremely reasonable for 45 minutes, especially not knowing whether it is going to work out as planned? If one decides to sign up for the 10 week program it will be $170 total. Still quite reasonable for Williamsburg!!
