It’ll be a great mid-morning or afternoon pick-me-up. On Sunday, get ready to rock around the Christmas tree because there is a […]

    Dive In and Learn the Hows and Whys of Public Schools

    by Nicole on 5/24/12 | 0 Comment(s)

    This is something that keeps me up at night:  where will my kids go to school? Finding and considering the options are intimidating and nerve-racking but I know I am not alone.  However daunting the process is, it doesn’t mean I’m going to bury my head in the sand.  Deep breath……exhale…..dive in! Even if your […]

    Brooklyn School Zone Maps Available Now

    by Nicole on 2/23/12 | 2 Comment(s)

    In light of the post I wrote last week about 311 giving out incorrect information about school zones, this new product could be the perfect band-aid. There have been a lot of zoning changes in the past year and the Department of Education has not updated its maps to reflect the changes. Talk about misinformation! […]

    New Kids Pharmacy

    I was walking around in Park Slope a month ago with some time to spare. I went into this new pharmacy: Kids RX.  They were still stocking shelves and setting up a train table in the back, but everything looked crisp, clean and la di da- Manhattan style. So, why am I dedicating a post […]


    Personalized Holiday Gifts

    I love Sweeter’s Pals. I have been turning to these recently whenever I am looking for a gift. These Sweeter Pals are individually handknit by Sue, who writes me a personalized “thank you” each time I have ordered one. You can have her personalize the Pal with a child’s name for an additional $6. I […]

    My favorite sound machine

    Unfortunately for everyone in our household, I am a light sleeper. In college I had to put an enormous whirring fan on all night so I could sleep- and none of my roommates appreciated that. Since then it has only been downhill with white noise radios, whale call music, bigger and bigger fans, oy! After […]

    Time Out New York Kids just finished counting votes for The Parents Awards…..I think sometimes these kinds of awards are similar to “American Idol” and the results are due to networking and friends, and other times the “best” really does win.  Here are my picks of the winners- some I chose because they are Brooklyn […]
