PJ Masks We’re the PJ Masks PJ Masks We’re the PJ Masks It still amazes me when I sit and watch cartoons with my kids and actually sing-a-long to the catchy tunes. Ziana is all about her cartoons and one of her favorites are PJ Masks because they get to dress up as super heroes and kick some serious butt. Now that Ziana has a little brother who copies and…

Carter’s Big Baby Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. When it comes to saving that “cash-money” as my 5-year-old would say I like to hold on to it tight. I’m somewhat of a penny-pincher. When I see a good sale I’m all over it, especially when it comes to clothing for the kids. When us moms/dads buy something we can wear it for years…

favorite parks in NYC

As a mother one of the things you kind of start becoming great at is finding pretty cool places to travel with your kids, one of them is parks. I always figured Manhattan or Central Park had the best places to hand out at, run around in and unique jungle gyms that I just got use to taking my daughter to the most dullest park around the block. That was…

Kissing My Kids on the Lips

kissing kids on lips bad

We can’t help but instantly fall in love, want to coddle and smother our babies in kisses, but many of our actions could raise such uproar and can be deathly dangerous. I’m the first to proudly and unapologetically say that I kiss my kids on the lips and make-out with their cheeks. I can’t help, but smother them everyday and grab them to lay one on them. I remember growing…

Talking About Racism to Your Kids

speaking to your children about racism

Unfortunately, talking about racism to your kids is something that you’ll need to bring up as a parent, especially in the state we’re living in now. Growing up in Long Island with all these white kids I definitely felt left out, not being able to connect with them. Did I feel that there was racism towards me? Never. I mentioned before that growing up on Long Island made me hate…

We had been out all morning and rushing to Brooklyn for the concert we…

I stayed up all night the day before thinking about what it would look like, what songs they’d sing, would I bump into them, what would I say? I was 14 so bare with me, I…
