Lets face it being a mommie leaves us very little “me” time. I never realized how much mess my pint size toddler could make, and the places where they manage to hide their snacks. ha ha Not to mention I can not tell you the last time I managed to go to the bathroom in peace. I now have a full time cheerleader to clap and cheer me on (thanks to potty training he likes to clap for mom and dad too!) Let me just tell you I have more respect for my mother every day! Raising four children must have been exhausting. Sorry Mom for all the headache we caused you haha! Don’t get me wrong I truly enjoy every minute of being a mommie! Yes, including going a full day without realizing I have my shirt on inside out, or peanut butter smeared on my face. ha
As I was saying we rarely get any time just to be by ourselves. Now as much as I would love a spa day… I know that a weekly trip is just not in the books for this mommie so… in the mean time the peanut butter that baby boy manages to smear on my face will have to suffice as my weekly facial. lol
Since moving to NYC I have been able to spend more time with my Mother in Law who is always telling me “you need to take time for yourself, if you don’t take care of YOU then you will not be able to take care of those that need you” This is very true. Whether it is taking five minutes to enjoy a cup of coffee, or going for a walk alone, buying a little something for yourself, even a craft project… doing what makes YOU relax and take time for yourself. EVERYONE needs a weekly Mommie’s Time Out!
I have decided that each week I am going to make a point to have “Mommie’s Time Out”. Please join me each Friday afternoon right here as I fill you in on what I did in time out!

Mommie’s Time Out- Coffee & Mani
This weeks Mommie’s Time Out included a at home manicure with ESSIE Sand Tropez polish and a delicious cup of coffee, while sweet pea had a glorious long nap!!! I am obsessed with ESSIE nail polish!!!! And this is my go to neutral color. I am constantly washing my hands and eventually my polish chips… One reason I adore this color is when it does chips, you can hardly tell because the color blends so well with your nails. I would say my time out was not so bad 😉
Like most parents I too want to keep messes and spills to a minimum. I have struggled to find a SPILL PROOF LEAK PROOF sippy cup… However, I have finally found the BEST cup. I can testify that it is indeed completely spill and leak proof. Sweet pea has been pretty rough with his cup and it is 100% leak proof! Tommee Tippee Explora “Truly Spill Proof Drinking 9oz Cup” comes in a set of two and available in a variety of designs for either girls or boys. The size is perfect for your toddler, and the design is much like an adult tumbler.

This past weekend I had the honor of attending Kids Fashion week here in NYC presented by petite PARADE and Vogue Bambini. . The events took place at Industria Superstudio. Baby boy and I attended Heidi Klum’s Truly Scrumptious first birthday fashion show! I was a little hesitant about bringing little one with me to the show, however, I was told that they encourage you to bring your children with you as this is a VERY kid friendly event. I must say when I arrived I was a little nervous as to how sweet pea was going to act during the show (he was a little restless to say the least). None the less the good ole’ lollipop bribe did the trick to keep him calm as we waited in line. As we entered the studio of the show we were not able to get any seats which was a little disappointing… thankfully I had my ergobaby carrier which made things a little more comfortable. Due to standing I was not able to capture too many photos of the show. I will say it was one of the most adorable things I ever did see in a fashion show. The children had inflatable balloon art as runway props and accessories. Heidi’s Show was Truly PRECIOUS! The kids strutted Truly Scrumptious holiday collection which is available exclusively at Babies“R”Us stores.
