  • Safety While Surfing
    Tweet When I started blogging last year, I did so with a lot of gusto. Writing aimlessly and sometimes carelessly about my kids. When I attended BlogHer 2008, the questions regarding safety on the web arose. I panicked. Was I giving away too much information? I curtailed my posts and created a separate blog dedicated to the adventures of my angels, with restricted...

  • Disney On Ice
    Tweet As much I appreciate technology, I am not a fan of family time and technology mixing. In a time where family time is becoming a dwindling thought Disney On Ice seems like the ideal choice to recharge the notion. To make it affordable Mom Central has allows you to obtain deep discounts by using the code MOM. The enchantment of seeing the famous and lovable characters...

  • The Circus Comes To Town
    Tweet With my kids watching their favorite shows (Caillou and Dora The Explorer) feature the circus in many of the episodes, I thought nothing of it. Then I saw this offer through Mom Central to get (highly) discounted tickets and I thought that this would be a wonderful way to have an entrancing live performance that will not be forgotten. Of course live events are...

  • Just Name That Gift!
    Tweet It is birthday season all year when you have kids. It seems all you can do is manage the social calendar of your kids and with a twinge of envy wonder why your own seems drier than the Sahara desert. It it all I can do to keep my head wrapped around the several dates filled in the year. When I moan to parents of older kids about the amount of parties they chalk...

  • Have A Cupcake, And Do Good!
    Tweet How can you have a cupcake, while donating to a worthy cause, with a chance to win prizes and still not damage your waistline (or in my case not damage it further)? Well, thanks to the Mom Central team, who has asked me to review The Electrolux Virtual Cupcake, I got to find out exactly how. Electrolux has teamed with Kelly Ripa and has committed to send $1...

  • Yanni Voices Concert
    Tweet It was a fortunate thing to be introduced to the wonder of Yanni Voices through the One2One Network. I might never have know that this scintillating music, that took two years in the making, even existed. The ensemble of Nathan Pacheco, Chloe, Ender Thomas and Leslie Mills bring a breath of fresh air to the music scene. With the romance of Valentine’s...

  • Music Review: He’s Just Not That Into You
    Tweet When the One-2-One Network team asked if anyone wanted to review a Music Soundtrack, I partially jumped for joy. The thought of reviewing was exciting but I figured I was so out of touch with what is hip that I had no right to review. Then I saw the album name “He’s Just Not That Into You” and I smiled as I recalled that phrase from Sex And The...

  • Valentine’s Gift Ideas…
    Tweet Messed up on the Birthday gift? Forgot the Anniversary? No problem, Valentines Day is here and if you plan well you may just redeem yourself. Does the thought of all that RED around Valentines Day drive you crazy? Do you hate feeling pressured by the commercialism surrounding it to actually force you do something, that you just want to do nothing? Well, instead...

  • Stop n Shop’s Free Antibiotic Program
    Tweet I remember seeing the advertisement on television about the free antibiotic prescription program offered by Stop n Shop and just thinking “wow”. Here is something clearly tangible that someone is doing for the people to help with an area needing much address. It is easier to have deep discounts, but to actually offer free of something that is essential...

  • The Stop n Shop’s Women Luncheon
    Tweet When I heard of a Stop n Shop party from a friend for moms in downtown Boston at Hamersley Bistro, I should have been excited but I (ungratefully) groaned. Then she mentioned catered lunch, and though my tummy was screaming in joy (doesn’t take much for that to happen) I was still thinking “Boston = traffic”. Then I heard more about the paid...

  • How Sweet It Is To Tweet!
    Tweet I cannot believe that there was a time when I did not know what Twitter was. How on earth did I survive? Twitter is the social media networking tool (similar to Facebook but on a totally different scale). Being a chatterbox myself it is the food I need to keep me going. Last week I discovered one of the online parties. I had no idea what it was but the adrenaline...

  • Starbucks Sees (RED) On AIDS Day!
    Tweet It is AIDS day and it was a pleasant surprise to see Starbucks jump on the Product (RED) bandwagon and give some proceeds of drinks on this day to the AIDS fund. AIDS is a topic close to my heart, especially coming from South Africa, and hubby from India (the two largest countries impacted by AIDS). On the Facebook (virtual) event many chastised the coffee house...

  • Our "Bye Bye Bush, Hello Obama" Party
    Tweet It seems like Mommy Niri has gone all political on you these days, right? Well I could hardly over-emphasize an important moment such as Obama taking office. Amidst the gloom and doom of the USA economy (and Mommy Niri’s too) we happen to come across an offer to host End-Of-Bush parties (by Credo Mobile). This seemed like an exciting way to mark the event....

Since we already have Gymboree classes for Bela and Swim Classes for Jia set for every Saturday it ensures that the weekends start out busy.

  • Bedford Springs Brook Park
    Tweet After a few days of crappy weather when the sun poked out eventually on a Sunday morning there was no way we were going to stay in. Yes the chores we had planned to do were important but so was creating summer memories. We decided to give the Bedford Springs Brook park sprinkler park a try. We never anticipated the amount of fun the kids would have. This is definitely...
