Nanny Appreciation Week is September 22-28, 2019. Here are some great ways to show your caregiver how much she means to you and your family.
Overnight camp can be an amazing experience for kids to develop independence, make new friends, and enjoy all that summer has to offer! But, sometimes our children come home campsick: missing camp so much and having trouble adjusting to being home again. Read and learn more about how to ease your child’s transition and keep them happy after camp.
Becoming a new parent is the start of an incredibly exciting chapter in your life, but between feedings, dirty diapers, and naps that are far too short, it can be easy to quickly become overwhelmed. Equally as importantly, it can be easy to forget about the romance that led you and your partner to make the decision to have a baby in the first place. If you are a new parent, the baby is likely taking up the majority of your time. However, it is valuable for your mental health and relationship health to find space to get away and remember what led you down this path.
Bringing your nanny on a summer vacation – whether it’s for a long week away, for a summer in the Berkshires or the Hamptons, or even for the stay-cation at home – really is a gift. A good nanny knows when to stick around and when to take some time off; she understands when it is pure family time.
Long weekends can either be periods of relief or chaos depending on how your family spends them. Memorial Day Weekend is one that lends itself to being busy simply because of the warm, end-of-May weather (hello, pool time!). Whether you are hosting family in the New York area, or whether you are road tripping to the city, here are some tips on how to spend the weekend with your family.
The weather is finally getting warmer and there are tons of things to do outside to celebrate spring! We recommend that parents encourage new vocabulary and language when outside.
With the weather finally getting warmer and the days getting longer, it’s clear that spring is just about here (the official start date is tomorrow!). The new season brings with it new books — so many in fact that in can be hard to tell which ones are worth buying. Here are some upcoming titles for you to check out for your little ones.
There are a lot of steps in finding the right camp for your child. Doing it right will exhaust you and give you the best chance of finding the right spot for your child this summer… and for many others afterward.
Do you ever look at your best friend’s super organized life and wonder how she does it? It’s not hard, but it does require some persistence. Half of disorganization is bad habits that have been allowed to carry on. If you want to change, you can try and do it bit by bit, or you can go ‘cold turkey’ and get everyone in the family on the same page!
With it being February, most of us want to stay inside until the warm weather is finally consistent. However, this can prove to move time much more slowly, creating a long and dull winter. That kind of environment is no good for you, not to mention your kids and the rest of the family. Especially in New York, there are always opportunities to help beat the winter blues.
