As you guys know, dance reigns supreme in this house right now, and little sister Talley wants to be part of it, BAD. Before she can go to Myers with her big sister though, she needs to get started out slow, and this weekend she took her very first dance class at The Dance Lab and cuteness ensued.
Let’s set the scene: you meet a new mom at the park, or at preschool. She seems cool, and nice, and might be someone you would actually hang out with. You try to think about how to set up a playdate or meet up again without being awkward. Enter: the Mommy card.
Getting my kids to eat isn’t always easy. One loves cheese, one hates cheese (except on pizza, naturally). The toddler eats broccoli like it’s going out of style and the other ones push it off the plate. Half of them will eat guacamole, and the other half will like it one day until I buy more because I’m so excited they’re all eating guacamole and then will suddenly decide it’s gross and will leave me with a surplus of guac (not really a problem with me around though).

Check. Brunch with your bestie? Check. Book clubbin’ it with the ladies? CHECK. Don’t believe me? Read on and learn, my friends…
What a weekend. Levy tried out for the Northeast Ballet Company production of the Nutcracker this Saturday at Proctors (her fourth time) and as usual as the kids were inside giving it their all, the moms (and some dads and grandmas,) were all on pins and needles waiting to see what parts they might get.
We’ve all heard about the “Terrible Twos”, that lovely little time period where your sweet child morphs into a selfish, tantrum throwing monster who refuses sleep and food yet somehow has an endless supply pure, unadulterated energy at all hours of the day. TERRIBLE TWOS.
And let me tell you, I am THERE with my two year old. So there. Except, I’m trying to see the silver lining. Because there has to be one, right?
