Just A Mom

When I showed Lily these pictures she loved them. “Mom, this is you dancing. These are so cool. can I show my friends? You should dance again”.

When I showed Thomas these pictures he said: “THIS is you? YOU can do THAT? This is my MOM?”

He couldn’t believe it was his mom jumping in the air in double attitude, 9 months pregnant… 38 weeks pregnant to be exact.

Lily remembers me as a dancer. She used to come on tour with me, she would come on set when we did shows, she would hang out at rehearsals and backstage and watch from the wings.

Thomas doesn’t know me as a dancer. He knows that I used to dance and I have led a few toddler dance classes for him and his friends but he hasn’t seen the full dancer mom that I used to be.

I took these photos for me. Not for anyone else but for me. For me to remember what a bad ass I used to be and STILL am! Something happened when I became a parent with Lily all those years ago and it just kept getting worse when we had Thomas. Don’t get me wrong, I love these little dragons more than anything and my life is immensely richer because of them but I also lost who I was in the process.

I lost my entire dance career is one big blow and I grieved this for years. I think just last year maybe… just maybe I finally was able to actually talk about it and say … I used to be a professional dancer and choreographer. It just hurt too much to identify as Just A Mom. I know, I said the taboo… Just. A. Mom. because as mom’s we are SOOOOO much more than that. Thus these photos!! We ARE much more than just mom’s… but do we remember that? I didn’t. For years I had lost touch with that part of who I am. The artist, the creative force, the person who I identify with. The MOM would take over and consume every single part of my being. From the moment I woke until the moment my tired exhausted body would give in and fold into the bed late into the night, I was a MOM. I just didn’t know my identity. Yes, I was functioning and working on creative projects but it was always under the MOM umbrella. I was always the MOM first and then the creative force second. And these two identities fought constantly.

We are about to have a baby any day. I am 39 weeks official today. And I know I am going to slip back into the fog of motherhood for some time. But right now, right now, I have clarity and I just want to remind myself that I am strong and I have this whole other person inside who is just waiting to bloom and adds richness and color to this sweet life we have created. And I want to remind any of you who need it too… you are still in there and the feeling of drowning and feeling lost in motherhood is seasonal and the fog will lift and you too will find your identity once again.

There is no shortage of articles being published every day about the strength of mothers and the sacrifices. But I rarely see this play itself out in real life. I don’t get daily assurances from my kids, I don’t have a sign every day that says… you are a supermom and awesome. It’s lonely and dark sometimes and the daily routine can eat your brain and your creative energy. I have to do this for myself. I never took any dance pictures when I was pregnant with Thomas so I figured why not now. Let me just go for it and have these images as a strong reminder that THIS IS ME. I’m not Just. A. Mom.

These photos are untouched and celebrate how my body has moved and changed through the years. I celebrate me today. And I hope you can celebrate you as well. I know I’m going to slip back into the doldrums of motherhood and the loss of identity is going to hit me hard… but right now and today… I feel good about who is still in here. I am happy to know that she comes out sometimes to make some great dance and art and bring creativity to this thing called motherhood.

My dear friend Gil Vankin took these photos. His work is beautiful and he is a very calm, collaborative, and creative to work with. I was very nervous taking these pics and he was able to capture moments I would never have discovered were within. thanks, Gil!

Pregnancy: 38 Weeks

So here we are… the home stretch! 38 weeks you guys!!! I feel great, and still, have a lot of energy. This baby girl is not coming out anytime soon! Here we are Pregnancy: 38 Weeks!!

Thomas has been sick all week. Thankfully it’s just him and the rest of us have steered clear of whatever yucky he has going on. I haven’t left the house since Sunday… except to head to the grocery store for a really quick stop and the Doctor. So I too am totally stir crazy!

I’ve really been meaning to update the blog lately, but this life doesn’t stop. I don’t know how people juggle so much. I am, more often than not, left with a feeling of not accomplishing enough in my day. The dishes are always dirty, the laundry has always piled up, the dog hair is everywhere, and the toys are multiplying every second!

Some symptoms of 38 weeks: I’ve been having serious heartburn. Heartburn that has been keeping me up all night and just making the daily grind uncomfortable. After talking to my facebook nation of mamas and taking their advice, I’ve been feeling much better. So how to help ease pregnancy heartburn? Tums, water, bland food and more water. Stay away from seltzer water ( which is all i’ve been drinking) and no spicy foods… also what I have been craving.  Did you have heartburn during pregnancy?

The kids have been really great lately. Everyone has been pitching in to get the house ready for our new addition. Lily has been especially helpful with helping me sort through hand me down baby clothes and helping sort through all the baby gear we have been getting for reviews from my fave brands.

On that note: look for lots of video reviews on some of my fave products! I have soooo much to share about baby gear since I’ve been an expert in the baby gear industry for about 5 YRS now. side side note: I should make this baby gear expert thing… a thing. Like really do more with getting my info out to the masses. OK, Gameplan! You have to hold me accountable!

My body feels good in this 38 week of pregnancy. I wake up with tons of energy… if I’ve slept. But around 3 pm… forget it. I’m down for the count. 3 pm is also when the kids come home from school so the timing isn’t always ideal. I usually give the kids a snack and then pop in a movie so we can all just rest for an hour. This usually does the trick. Thomas has nicknamed the baby gurlgurl... and it’s sticking!

I’m not eating much these days either. There just doesn’t seem to be any room in the belly. I’ve been noshing on small tiny snacky meals. Fruit, plantain chips, broccoli cravings, and yogurt… all day!

My BabyCenter email for 38 weeks came out this week and they suggested I get massages, take care of myself, have some me time. This is great and all but who is doing this exactly. I have no time to even process and filter my own thoughts most days. It’s a nice idea I guess. Did you make time for pampering during pregnancy? I didn’t really do anything pamperingish with Thomas either. hmmm… missing out.

So baby watch 2018 is officially underway. We’re just sitting around and waiting for this little gurlgurl to come out and say hi!

10 Awesome Winter Activities For Kids

10 Awesome Winter Activities For Kids

10 Awesome Winter Activities For Kids

This winter is seeming a little bit neverending and we STILL have February to go. It’s so easy to just cuddle up under a blanket, stay in PJ’s all day and watch movies or read books or work on crafting things. Lily is our resident baker and has the house smelling with yummy oveny smells all winter. I’m sharing 10 Awesome Winter Activities For Kids to get you out of the house and exploring!

10 Awesome Winter Activities For Kids

Thomas is into everything – HotWheels, Coloring, Osmo, Science, Building blocks, stickers, glitter. And Jonah loves just being around us. Needless to say… this family of mine loves being home and finding little projects to keep busy!

10 Awesome Winter Activities For Kids

Fortunately, I am not a homebody and need to get out and get things going. So we always have a plan for shaking things up and getting out of the house. Living in the New York City Suburbs, there is no shortage of activities every day and we definitely take full advantage of all the cultural offerings. I mean even the malls around here have arcades, ropes course inside the mall, ice skating…etc.

10 Awesome Winter Activities For Kids

Here is a list of our favorite activities to do when the winter blues get ya good!

  1. How about a winter hike? This is one of our favorite things to do. The lakes and streams are usually frozen and the kids love being able to walk on the ice or look for fish under the water. We also have gorgeous bald eagles on the Hudson River who sit on the icebergs and go fishing. It’s a pretty amazing sight. We hike year round and hiking in the winter is so very drastic that’s it’s exciting to see the changes in nature.
  2. Go to a museum. No matter where you live, I’m sure there is a museum nearby. A train museum, a doll museum or modern art museum. Take the kids. Don’t worry about the “kid friendly” part…art is great for all.
  3. Visit your local library. Libraries are full of programming for all ages and most libraries have vibrant kids corners with tons of activities like crafts, train sets, building blocks and more.
  4. Go rock climbing. The kids love our local indoor rock climbing space. There are endless options and levels for bouldering and climbing. It’s a great workout for the whole family and the perfect way to spend a cold day.
  5. How about an afternoon at the movies? Go for the popcorn and drinks and candy and make it a full afternoon of family bonding fun at your local movie theatre.
  6. Aquariums are also the perfect cold weather activity. Our aquarium has a shark and stingray touch tank which the kids love. There are usually craft activities for kids every day and a cafeteria inside the museum so you never have to leave!
  7. Bundle up the kids and head over to the local park for sledding. This is the perfect way to see neighbors and spend some active time outdoors. Our local park has a shed with a fireplace and we usually bring hot chocolate in a thermos to share.
  8. Host a dinner party! This is our favorite go-to activity in the cold winter months. We invite our friends over for dinner and just settle in for the cold evening and into the night. Fire in the fireplace, kids busy playing, laughter, stories, food, and drink. Perfect.
  9. Outdoor bonfire. Invite your neighbors over and bring out the smores supplies for a creative spur of the moment and a totally unexpected way to spend the cold snowy months. We’ve done this with the kids many times and they absolutely think it’s magical! We don’t stay out too long but just long enough to eat a few smores and enjoy the fire.
  10. Make cookies for your neighborhood. Lily did this a few weeks ago. She made tons of cookies for our neighbors and walked around and dropped them off. Well, actually we ate most of them before they were dropped off so only about two neighbors received the baked goods. Still, though, it’s such a great idea and it gets the kids baking and going outside for a short walk around the block.

The food is good and plenty. You will not leave hungry at all. There is a vegetarian option, just make sure you let your server know.

New York In the Snow

It’s not that I don’t appreciate a good white out kinda snow day… it’s just that we have had so many of them that the magic of it all is wearing off. Or is it? I don’t know… maybe I get lost in the technicalities of snow days – the cleaning, the cooking, the constant in and out, kids crying because snow has snuck into their boots or gloves or snow fights. Maybe I can just sit back and really enjoy the beauty and short season of snow days. Here are a few pictures of New York In The Snow. 

The New York Mom Snow Days

The New York Mom Snow Days

The kids have been loving all this snow and Jonah finds himself in his alpine element. The last big snow storm, Jonah was completely buried under the snow and Thomas got such a kick out of watching him shake the snow off of him to reveal himself. “LIKE A BIG SNOW MONSTER”.

The New York Mom Snow Days

 

The New York Mom Snow DaysThe New York Mom Snow DaysThe New York Mom Snow DaysThe New York Mom Snow DaysThe New York Mom Snow DaysThe New York Mom Snow DaysThe great thing about snow days is that it makes you stop everything and just be in the moment. This can, of course, come back to bite you the next day when work has piled up, the snow suits have melted and now you have to clean water and salt off the wood floors, or the cookie making, cupcake decorating, craft projects and whatever else you pulled out during the snow storm… have to all be cleaned up and put away.

But it’s worth it when you reflect on it. The kids love the snow days and I love that I have the flexibility and luxury to be home with them on these cozy days. Best part of snow days is being able to settle into movie nights with a fire and lots of popcorn and warm stew.

We still have the toughest month of the year ahead of us… February. So more and more and many more snow days ahead!

5 New Must Have Baby Products

Oh Baby! We are gearing up for … baby gear! While I’m planning on overdoing it with gear this time around… this is our third after all… I still love looking at baby gear and testing it and seeing what’s going on in the space. Baby gear is continuously evolving and I wanted to share 5 New Must-Have Baby Products.

Just in the short 4 years since Thomas was a baby, there have been big differences and changes in the baby gear world. From tech led products to high design, baby gear is reflecting the needs and wants of savvy fashion-forward parents. While there are so many new things coming up on the market every month, I wanted to share a few of my faves that have come across my desk recently.

I’ve seen and tested probably every baby product on the market and it definitely takes a bit to get me excited about something new! These products are not only practical but design worthy to fit your cool digs! So here we go… a few of my favorites I’m obsessing over right now. Here is my list of 5 New Must-Have Baby Products

The POP Doodle & Co Pacifiers. These are amazing 100% silicone pacifiers where the nipple pops back into itself bubble. I love these candy-colored pacifiers, the super soft silicone and of course the practical clean detail!

5 Brand New Must-Have Baby Products

GB Pockit Stroller. YOU GUYS!!! This stroller can fit in your bag!! YES! This is not a new product, I actually saw it about 2 years ago and it was amazing then. I just want to put this on your radar because it’s the PERFECT stroller for when you travel. Did I mention it fits in your bag! 5 Brand New Must-Have Baby Products

Huggs Contour Baby Carrier. This is a new design for baby carriers which is pretty spot on. This carrier comes with a booster seat attached so baby can feel totally supported and there is some weight taken off the parents back. 5 Brand New Must-Have Baby Products

Snoo Smart Sleeper. I WANT this! The SNOO is the future of baby gear. It’s all techy and motion censored and basically sleep trains your baby without all the fuss and crying! A few details that I love about this baby bed are that there is a swaddle built into this bed so baby is securely placed on her back and stays there, swings or jiggles to soothe baby because it’s motion sensored so knows when baby is restless. and it even plays the right sound – white noise, rain…etc – to rock baby back to sleep. on top of all these features, this is a work of furniture design art. I love this simple design, classic bassinet look. Coveting this over here! 5 Brand New Must-Have Baby Products

Summer Infant My Bath Seat. This is brilliant! SUction cups attach this to the walls of your bathtub so your baby is secure in this high back seat for bath time. This is great for splashing around in the bath and it gives parents enough space to give a baby a good wash. Have you tried to bath a baby… suuuper slippery, this helps. This is NOT to be used with infants. I would recommend this for babies who can sit up unassisted and up. 5 Brand New Must-Have Baby Products

Pregnancy – Tips for Surviving Your Second Trimester

Pregnancy - Surviving Your Second Trimester

So here we are the second trimester! The Second Trimester of Pregnancy is defined as week 14 – week 27. Like I mentioned in my previous post – Pregnancy – Surviving the First Trimester, Your body is like the North …. it remembers. ( always geeking out on Game of Thrones ) You might have already popped out more than you did with your first pregnancy. And these symptoms you are having are different the second and third time around. I’m sharing some of my tips for Pregnancy – Tips for Surviving Your Second Trimester

Pregnancy - Surviving Your Second Trimester

I’ve been extremely exhausted and have to take an afternoon nap or my bedtime gets pushed to 8:30 pm which basically is the kid’s bedtime and I get no time to myself or any work done. My legs have been cramping throughout my pregnancy and have only been getting worse as the weeks roll on. I’ve also been pretty emotional and if you are feeling this way, speak to your doctor or lean on your friends if you are not getting your emotional needs met by your family.

Pregnancy - Surviving Your Second Trimester

Here are a few tips to help you Survive your Second Trimester of Pregnancy.

  1. Drink lots of water. Yes, I said this for the first trimester but you have to keep it going for the second and third. The water really helps with muscle cramps and comfort.  I have had a hard time drinking regular water so I’ve been making lime water – cut up a lime and squeeze into a water glass.
  2. Purchase a belly band to support your growing belly. Some days I feel like my belly is going to fall out from under me and a belly band really comes in handy.
  3. Up your calcium intake. I can’t stand the taste or smell of milk but I love yogurt. I’ve been having Trader Joes Vanilla Greek Yogurt with a Gluten-free Vanilla, Blueberry, and almond granola. It’s my go to all the time.
  4. Eat small meals throughout the day. I feel like there is just no space in my belly for food, but I’m hungry all the time. My go-to meal has been – Tomatoes, red onions, and anchovies with a little bit of oil and salt. I don’t get any fresh breath awards but all my cravings and hunger needs have been met.
  5. Get a massage.  I have YET to do this. A prenatal massage or even reflexology can make a huge difference in the way you feel, your mood, and your overall comfort level.
  6. Start creating your maternity wardrobe. I’ve been having a hard time finding maternity clothes that fit my style and fit my frame, so with the exception of a couple maternity pieces, i’ve been costing on regular clothing and it’s saved me some money for sure!  LEggings and sweaters and long sweaters have been my go to this season. Don’t go overboard with spending too much on a full wardrobe, just grab a couple key pieces and take it easy!

Merry Christmas!

The New York MomMerry Christmas friends! I hope you are all recovering from the whirlwind of the holiday season. We have Matt’s parents in town for a few days and the kids haven’t stopped talking and playing and loving on Grandma and Grandpa. I am pretty exhausted and checking into my 32 weeks of pregnancy and just don’t feel like moving some days. We have to switch gears over here and start getting ready for Baby number 3! So exciting.

The Christmas season always makes us all sit down, slow down, and reflect on the year that passed. We’ve had a busy year in our personal and professional lives. I have been able to bring some parts of dance and movement and choreography back into my weekly schedule – so happy for that. We had a fantastic summer with our family in Florida, Matt and I had a –no kids– vacation to Tulum, Mexico which was so heavenly. I highly recommend going places without the kids! We’ve been in our town for two years and while not one home improvement project has been started, we have made some great friends and have really enjoyed getting to know our neighbors.

The New York Mom

As with every year, we had great intentions of sending out Christmas cards this year… but again…probably not going to happen. We couldn’t even schedule a time to book a photographer to take our photos because we are all so busy. So on the way home from church this past Sunday, we made a quick stop at our local farm and propped up my iPhone on some rocks, timer set to 10 seconds… 5 photos later. DONE!

The New York Mom
Merry Christmas

Sometimes the least planned things are the best.

Living a perfectly imperfect life over here and loving every moment of it.

Best of everything to you and your loved ones this season.
