Trick or treat night is fun for both kids and parents. There is only one night of the year that parents allow their children to go out at night and ring the doorbells at stranger’s houses. Kids enjoy it because they get to dress up collect lots of candy, while parents love to see their kids dolled up in their costumes and may even look forward to sneaking a handful or two of the candy that their children collect.
Paging Mary Poppins. As More sitter services pop up at hotels and in well-visited cities, parents are taking advantage (and taking a break).
Kids Costumes can be your one stop shop for all of your child’s dress-up needs, whether it is for Halloween, a school play or a dance recital. It’s a humongous store that is just packed to the rafters with incredible costumes that range anywhere from toddler sizes to 12-14 year olds. They even carry some adorable newborn costumes.
Lunch is usually the quick meal of the day, squished between everything that needs to be accomplished. However, it should be just as healthy and well-rounded as breakfast and dinner. Skip the peanut butter and jelly and bologna sandwiches –they’re just not fun! Get your kids interested and involved in creating and eating a healthy lunch with these creative ideas.

If you happen to smell the pleasant aroma of freshly baked foods wafting in the air as you leave story time at Mable’s Fables, it must be what’s coming out of the oven across the street at Café Jules Patisserie. Nanny Erin followed her senses and discovered a perfect place to bring children to, before or after story time. The delightful little French café boasts unbelievably mouth-watering fresh-bakery type snacks that taste as yummy as they smell.
Clear communication: Maintain clear communication with your nanny.
Stay on schedule, arrive on time; do not expect the nanny to stay longer than his/her work hours unless previously discussed and agreed to by both parties.
Being a nanny is a job, it takes skills, respect the person who is looking after your children.
