So whether you live in town or you are building an itinerary for your special Saturday visiting the Big Apple, we like to suggest adding the MoMA design store to your schedule. http://bit.ly/16w4R2t
Some of our fondest memories of our own children are taking them to the zoo for the very first time. There’s hardly a child whose eyes don’t light up seeing their favorite animal from picture books in real life for the first time, hearing the sound of the monkeys, or watching the sea lions underwater from behind glass. http://bit.ly/1b9amme
With the final unofficial days of summer so close (wah!), we’ve got one more long weekend to milk the most out of the late sunsets with the family. http://bit.ly/17dsxYJ
We city mamas know that getting around the city with a baby is a wee bit different than hopping in and out of the SUV all day. If you’e got a trip to a city—New York, Paris, Chicago, you name it—planned with your baby, we hope these tips will help make life easier. http://bit.ly/148llWG
If you’re an SiriusXM subscriber, or know someone who is, tune in to Absolutely Mindy’s show (3-6pm EST) today and listen to us chat about vacation travel tips for kids and parents around the 5pm hour. It’s not a secret that we’re big Kids Place Live fans here at Cool Mom Picks. In fact, I’m pretty sure there would be a mutiny in my care if I tried to change the channel, especially during the Absolutely Mindy show, our afterschool staple. So when my daughter Quinlan and I were invited to be guests on her show, there was a fair amount of squeeing. From both of us. http://bit.ly/1cMHS05
Once again, Cool Mom Picks was so happy to support our friends at Baby Buggy on June 4 at the annual Baby Buggy Bedtime Bash carnival, and helping them to raise close to $500,000 for at-risk families with young children in need. And wow, did the celebs come out this year, all with their adorable kids. http://bit.ly/1bKd9jN
The official start of summer is just around the corner and that means time for playgrounds, parks, and that very first picnic, one of our very favorite rites of passage for new babies.
Whether you need to organize LEGOs, corral Polly Pockets, or secure squirrely Squinkies, the Swoop bag has been our go-to recommendation for smart, easy toy orgnization. And now they’ve got a new to-go version made just for travel,that’s just as sturdy and brilliant as the larger version.
When I first discovered Baby Buggy, the remarkable organization that helps new mothers most in need, I was instantly captivated. As a new mom myself, I wanted to know what I could do to help.
Each month, our lovely and clever newsletter subscribers get access to many perks and goodies you won’t find on our site. Like exclusive deals and discount codes, and sometimes even something as fab as a dream vacation to Costa Rica. Oh, yeah, we’re that good.
If you’re a LEGO fan, a fine art photography fan, a kid, or just a cool adult (which, of course you are) you’re going to flip over this exhibit.
Watching The Academy Awards always gets me excited to watch more movies, but maybe not the best movies for kids. In fact I’m sure that 99% of them are way too much for little ones (and, often, me) to handle.
Luxe alert: I was introduced to the 100% natural, nontoxic Tata Harper Skincare at Canyon Ranch this summer. It was a moment of seriously posh pampering in my otherwise ordinary life, and an incredibly soothing experience. Luckily, it’s a splurge you can enjoy at home, too. So if you know someone who could use some pampering and serious self-care after a long year (including you!), you might just want to give Santa the heads-up.
