7 Tips to Help Moms Survive the Day After a Sleepless Night

I haven’t met a mom yet who hasn’t had her share of sleepless nights. Some of us experience them more than others, but none of us love them. Even if you love the bonding time that you may have with your infant in the wee hours of the night, I’m sure you don’t enjoy the fatigue you experience the next day.

Fun in the Sun: 10 Adorable Disney Baby Products to Help Keep Your Baby Protected

Spring is in full swing and the temperatures are rising. We’ve had incredible weather here in Manhattan and I love being able to take all three of the kids out for a walk or to the playground.

While I love this time of year, I want to keep my kids protected while we are playing outside. The sun can be fun to play in, but it can also be hurtful to our skin and even more so to our children’s skin. With Macks being so young, I want to do all that I can to keep him protected while we are outside.

Thankfully Disney Baby has so many cute accessories for me to choose from that will keep him protected from the sun while also looking very stylish. Check out some of my favorite Disney Baby products that will help keep your little one protected this season.

Real Party Inspiration: Xavier's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Birthday

If you have a little one, then you are probably pretty familiar with the Disney Junior show Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. My daughter is totally obsessed with it and has been singing the theme song since she was just a tiny thing, so when I saw this fun Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed birthday party in my friend Miriam’s Instagram feed, I knew I had to ask if she’d let me share it. Miriam is the mama, owner and designer behind Miriam Corona Events. She styles the most fabulous parties and events, and this one is pretty great. I think my little one would flip over this theme…maybe for her next birthday!

A Thank You Letter to My Little Girl

My Dearest Jada,

I can’t believe it’s been exactly 18 months since you entered my life. Oh, how time flies. During my pregnancy with you, life was quite eventful and I thought that everything going on would certainly cause you to arrive before your due date. I was wrong. You are not one to be rushed. Three days after you were due, you came into my life and the first lesson you taught me is one I will be eternally grateful for. You showed me how much my heart was able to expand and how much love I actually have to give. I am still in awe. 

Cooking with Bee

One of my favorite things about weekends is our ability to stretch out into the day a bit more than usual. Weekdays can be frenzied and rushed, a mix of playdates and commitments and the general juggling act of dinner-on-table-in-twenty-minutes-or-less.

This past weekend, we all slowed a bit – pausing for impromptu playground swinging and flushed cheeks and dirty feet. And when the clock struck 4 p.m., I asked Bee if she wanted to come in to help me cook dinner.
