    FreshDirect: Because Parents Need All the Help We Can Get

    by Sarah on 3/28/14 | 0 Comment(s)

      (Sponsored) Not long ago I went to a friend’s baby shower, and one of the things on her registry was a gift certificate to FreshDirect. And I thought, that’s genius, since pre-baby you really have no idea what you’re in for, and post-baby you never know what people will give you. Endless diaper gift [...]

    Resident Dad: Van Brunt Still House

    by John on 3/04/14 | 0 Comment(s)

    I admit to having an unhealthy fixation with Red Hook. It has everything this urban idealist needs to believe that Brooklyn will find a new model for Twenty-First Century urbanity. Decaying signs of its roots as an industrial port mingle seamlessly with its more recent revitalization, making it an ideal laboratory for a sustainable future. [...]

    Meditation and Kids: What’s Sanskrit for Chillax?

    by Sarah on 1/14/14 | 0 Comment(s)

    We all know we should be meditating. Meditation alleviates stress, improves sleep, improves brain function (just ask the Tibetan monks), shrinks stubborn belly fat, well, maybe I just wish that were true. But it’s good for us. So, stands to reason, it’s probably good for our kids too. In fact, kids can derive all the [...]
