Weekly Wrap-Ups

In my Weekly Wrap-Up videos, I give you Mamas out there a glimpse into my life as a mother of five! It’s a place for travel updates, funny moments between my children, interesting observations, and generally the goings-on in our busy NYC apartment. Specifically, I share my experience of being a guest on The Mom’s View YouTube show, how my daughter has gotten over her fear of dogs, which decorations we’ve used for our first Fall-themed dinner, adventures in some great local museums, and much more! As a mom, it’s so satisfying to go somewhere new, eat something new, do something new, and just spend your day with the family creating your own fun! Follow my adventures here!
