Mamatoga Daily: Monday, Jan. 30th

Even though my own postings on Mamatoga will be somewhat limited this week as I get settled in with new baby Jack, I have a LOT of great stuff for you guys from some fabulous guest bloggers that you won't want to miss. Plus I have the review of my stay at Saratoga Hospital to bring to you and some other fun stuff as well. I hope you all had a great weekend, mine was incredible, we are still deep in the dreamy new baby fog and so much in love with our new addition. I want to say a special thanks to each and every one of you for your congratulations and kind words, it has been yet another reminder of how amazing this little community is and it really touched me to read all of your comments and made our day all the more meaningful.

Now, here are the events and activities for Monday, I hope you have a great night everyone! Don't forget to check out the Top 5 Events on, and the Capital Region Kid Connection this week is your How To on doing Chowderfest with the Kids!
