Mommy's New Groove | Stay At Home Mom. Food, Fitness and Travel Fan...
I started this blog to share my experiences, my fears, my thoughts, my challenges and all that comes with this mommy terrain. I also want to hear your thoughts and experiences. Come join me on my journey as I navigate through preschool, discovering new foods, keeping fit and the ever evolving joy of being a stay at home mom.
I had a great childhood. It was everything a childhood should be. Carefree and fun. At least that is how I remembered it. When I was 5, We Are The World, was released. Till this day I remember all the words to the song. I also remember the explanation given to me by my dance […]
As you may be able to conclude from some previous posts, I am a subscription box fan! I think they are a fun way to sample a bunch of different items and products for a particular interest. These days it seems like there is a subscription box for almost any interest! However, when Karla […]
My little one has now been in kindergarten for about 2 weeks. While I can’t say she has been as enthusiastic as her first day (that’s a whole other post!), I can say that I’ve grown even prouder of her as her journey continues. Sure I’m proud of her for trying to adjust to […]
Last week, I met my friend for coffee to lament over our little girls going to kindergarten. Aside from discussing how our daughters’ school days are going and how we are adjusting to the new norm, the topic of returning to the workforce popped up. Both of us had been asked when we were […]
She got on the big yellow school bus, the book bag larger than her. It looked so big on her I thought for a second she might just tip over. She was so excited for her first bus ride to kindergarten that she forgot to turn around on the top step to wave goodbye like […]
We all have seen Pinterest boards on “101 Ways To Keep Your Child Busy This Summer”. We’ve read the articles on how horrible it is for kids to sit in front of the TV on a beautiful summer day. We have browsed day trip suggestions in our area, looked at local events that might […]
Most of us vow we will never compare our children to other children. Yet, on some level, most of us do. I would sit in some mom circles and hear stories how “so and so’s daughter can’t color in the lines yet….my kid has been doing that since she was blah blah blah“. I’ve […]
My 5 year old saw her first Broadway show. This video is inspired by her experience! It’s not the traditional version of A Whole New World, but based off of Yuna’s version of the song that was used for Disney’s Aulani promotional videos. We are fortunate enough to live close to New York City. […]
We’ve all seen the hilariously funny videos about going to the beach before kids versus going to the beach after kids. The carefree days of grabbing a towel and sunglasses are replaced with schleping a bag of sand toys, water toys, snacks and what feels like enough stuff to camp out for days on […]
You may remember I mentioned that my mom squad is breaking up. Well today is the day that one of my daughter’s best friends, along with her wonderful mom who is a member of my mom tribe, boarded a plane with their one way tickets. Ever since my friend mentioned her family was moving, […]
