If my 2 year old daughter, L, gets her hands on a crayon, pencil, or Doodle Magic marker, she immediately asks you to draw her a bear. She also really enjoys crafts lately, which has been a lot of fun for both of us. Lucky for L, we know a handful of people (aka her […]
On my most organized weeks I’ve prepped multiple meals for the week on Saturday or Sunday, but a typical scenario is running around all weekend, getting home Sunday afternoon saying, “x*?%*@ (mild expletive), I don’t have anything prepped for daycare lunches this week!” Frittatas have saved me so many times because: I can make it […]
I remember the days before I had children when my husband and I would go out to dinner at least 2-3 times each week. We loved to go to new places and try new food. Now, 3 children later, we are lucky if we get a night out once a month! That’s why on the […]
I am so excited to join the FCMB team as a contributor! I’m Jackie and I became a Fairfield County resident about five and a half years ago. My oldest daughter was one when we moved up from the city, and three years later we welcomed another little girl, who is now four. In June, […]
HI! I’m so excited to be a part of FCMB in 2015. I have some great ideas to share with you, so please come back and visit. To kick it off, here’s an average “day in the life,” so you can get a better idea about the chaos I live with and love! 4:40am – […]
Hello! I am a recent (if you count 8 months as recent!) stay-at-home mom! I left the wonderful world of finance <<insert sarcasm>> after having my daughter Penny, almost 3, and son Grady, who recently turned 1. It was a HARD adjustment returning to work after both pregnancies, and it has been equally as hard to […]
I actually was planning on writing about a completely different – perhaps less controversial – topic, but then I recently came across this post on Salon. The post is written by a work-at-home mother who questions how it came to be that despite her best efforts to teach her 10 year old daughter to question […]
Every Sunday morning, after I’ve served breakfast, I have a routine that I’ve grown to love. I grab my cup of coffee, a pencil and my meal planning worksheet and get to work. In my house, I have to cater to a three year old with food allergies (dairy, egg, nuts, and sesame), a husband […]
Hi, I’m Michelle, and let me further clarify that with the letter G. I moved to Stamford last year, after my husband matched as a resident physician at Stamford Hospital. We have three children who fill our lives with excitement, joy, and utter chaos. Due to my husband’s education (and my wanderlust), we have spent […]
I love that Fairfield County has so much to offer my family and I, but there’s also so much more to see and do throughout Connecticut! We love taking day-trips, and I’m always looking for new places to bring our 2 year old daughter. There are a handful of places that often come up in my […]
