Happy Weekend.

June 20, 2014

Today our kids graduated pre-k, hard to believe the year went so quickly. I am so proud of my son and all that he accomplished this year, huge milestones and I definitely lost it a bit when he held up his diploma today. After graduation we had a party at the park with some of the parents and kids from all the pre- k classes and I once again was so amazed at the support all the parents give to each other, so important that we as mothers have this support. Erica wrote a sweet post reflecting on her daughter's first year of school, definitely read if you missed it!

Summer starts tomorrow officially although we have seen 80 plus temps here all week so we're pretty prepared for the upcoming hot weather! 5 Facts of Summer Solstice.


  • Free music from Make Music New York starts tomorrow. In our hood and early enough for the kids will be at American Playground at 4pm to 8pm.

  • Free Yoga is still happening
  • Have a cool product /idea that help solve a parenting challenge? Huggies opened their grant application for submission this week. You can win $15,000 to help you with your genius idea. I met two moms who actually won the grants and each product started with just a thought and turned into a product sold at stores like Target. Why can't it be you?! HuggiesMomInspired.com
