"It seemed I would never have anything in common with them — despite having something that was very much in common with them."

I had never felt old until I had to search for other "old mom" friends. Fortunately, there are other geriatric millennials becoming parents!

"I call my family to dinner and wait with bated breath, expecting to get comments like, 'Ugh, what kind of pasta is this?' or, 'I don't like this green stuff.'"

The night I made a healthier mac and cheese, I was incredibly skeptical. But I’ve learned to not be afraid of serving healthy family meals!

"Will she be smart and kind and fearless because of how I raise her — or because I happened to choose good egg and s***m donors?"

The pieces that made up this double-donor child weren’t mine, but she is 100% mine. What does this mean for the nature vs. nurture question?

Mom Knows Best! Here are our TOP 3 picks for fun at Boston Children's Museum this month!

1. CreatedBy Festival, Sunday, October 22nd, 9am-4pm: https://createdbyfestival.org/

The CreatedBy Festival, produced by Boston Children’s Museum, is an annual showcase and festival of ingenuity, imagination, and cross-disciplinary creativity. CreatedBy is an event that brings together artists, inventors, fabricators, educators, local makers, STEAM professionals, and organizations that engage our visitors with hands-on activities. It is an opportunity for the creators that make Boston an international leader in innovation to share their work and inspire the next generation of visionaries.

2. Spooktacular, Saturday October 28th, 5pm-8pm: https://bostonchildrensmuseum.org/

Celebrate spooky season at Boston Children’s Museum’s fourth annual Spooktacular. Frightful fun awaits the entire family during this after-hours event on Saturday October 28 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. Come celebrate and party where the wonder and fun of Boston Children’s Museum combines with trick-or-treating, spooky activities and programs for frightfully safe fun for all.
Throughout the night, experience activities and programs for all ages, including a “Little's Pumpkin Patch” specifically for guests under the age of three, “Pumpkin Putt-Putt” perfect for the entire family, and “Potions!” for kids looking for a fun hands-on challenge. There will be plenty to do for every member of the family, and don’t forget about all the treats you will be leaving with!

3. Jazz is Joy! With the Imagine Orchestra: Sunday, October 29, 2-3pm: https://bostonchildrensmuseum.org/calendar/

Music is a universal language. Through music we can time travel to different places and time. Music is our natural environment, the sounds we take in when we pause, listen and question. Music helps us discover new worlds, or make our own world, and learn how to share it with others. Music is color, emotions, energy, rhythms, textures, imagination. Music is good noise that inspires freedom and joy. Join us in Kidstage for one hour of creative exploration, with Jazz Urbane’s Imagine Orchestra!

"So naturally, if you are teasing your kid, they’ll, in turn, tease others. And let’s just call it what it is. Teasing a peer in a hurtful way is bullying."

I pride myself in trying to be the least judgmental mom I can be. But I find it really difficult to witness parents teasing young kids.

"Over the last 15+ years, I’ve seen from the inside how great technology is made, and now I’m on a mission to help parents find the right developmental specialists for their children in a way that’s simple, affordable, and trustworthy.

Rockland Trust’s Ms. Money’s Classroom is making it easy and fun to lay a basic foundation of important financial skills for our daughter. The classroom includes a parent lesson plan, engaging activity sheets for kids, and catchy songs from Ms. Money herself. The lessons help children understand wants versus needs, how to give with our money, and how to save. As a parent who wants her child to have a solid grasp on money management, I very much recommend Ms. Money’s classroom! — Shannon, mom of 2 ❤️💵
