  •   deirdre_mcm That makes me dizzy. Even over instagram. 4h
  •   insta2yearold @deirdre_mcm If you've spent your whole life living on the 12th floor, it's not so bad. 4h
  •   deirdre_mcm I grew up on the 11th floor, @insta2yearold! But it's been brownstones and townhouses since. I like being closer to the ground. 3h
  •   2sisters_angie No crowds either, right?! Sounds perfect :) Happy Thanksgiving to the @mommyshorts fam from Team Mayhem! 3h
  •   leila.and.stitch You know you've got a serious phobia when this picture is too scary too look at! :-/ #scaredofheights 3h

mommyshorts Once we were in a restaurant and Mazzy asked for a treat after dinner. I thought she meant dessert and had the waitress bring her a glossy picture menu full of huge ice cream sundaes. Then I found out what she was asking for was a single peppermint from a bowl on the hostess table. Another time, we were at the toy store buying a friend a birthday present when Mazzy said she wanted something too. I was ready to say "no" when I realized she'd be satisfied with popping $.25 in a quarter machine for a bouncy ball. I say— take advantage of the time in your kid's life when little things can still make a lasting impression. 16 small ways to earn extra big smiles (without spoiling them!) on the blog today.

  •   mommyshorts @shannonwebb94 @itsjustiney Yep! It was me. I have it trademarked and everything. If you scroll back in my feed about two years to right after Harlow was born, you'll find it. 1d
  •   shannonwebb94 @itsjustiney @mommyshorts well that explains it! I think that was before I started following you. it popped up in my FB feed yesterday from some random home design and architecture site that was sponsored. They had a post about it and an album of some of the pictures. 1d
  •   mommyshorts @shannonwebb94 well I'm sure they were all stolen pics and it sucks that advertisers feel they can use them so freely. 1d
  •   miarosesmommy Ok @mommyshorts I LOVE your shoes! Polka dots?!! Beyond perfect! Where did u get them?? Being 8 months preggos all I can buy are shoes -- a momma needs some new Xmas shoes! 1d
  •   mommyshorts @miarosesmommy thank you! They are Cole Hahn. It's actually little gold studs. 21h
  •   miarosesmommy Thanks @mommyshorts adding them to my list now! 21h
  •   shannonwebb94 @mommyshorts agreed! that's why I didn't realize it was your idea bc of course there was no mention of you or any of the photographers! 3h

  •   chelsearhein @mommyshorts I recently read your entire sleep training info on your website and I have to say THANK YOU! I was unsure of how to transition our daughter to her crib from cosleeping. We just started sleep training her this week and it has gone great so far *fingers crossed*. Last night she cried for about and hour or so and tonight she was out before the 10 minute check. I'm hoping this keeps up because she was wonderful all day today. Thank you again and I love following your adorable family! 2d

mommyshorts Anyone want some birthday cake? All our birthdays are in a row. Mike's is on October 22nd, Harlow's is on November 15th, mine is on November 24th, Thanksgiving is the 27th and Mazzy's birthday is on December 9th. Then we have a grand finale with Hanukah and Christmas. I'm already stuffed! 3d

mommyshorts It's my birthday today. I got to celebrate with this beyond gorgeous cake Saturday night. Which suggests a way larger gathering than my intimate little dinner at the delicious @littleowlnyc. Huge thanks to @littlemissparty for making everything look fabulous without me having to say a word and to my husband for making it happen. Thanks to @karilynphoto for snapping the picture! 3d

mommyshorts We met the Rockettes! And we all saw the #RadioCityChristmas Spectacular for the first time. Mazzy totally thinks Santa is real. When should I break it to her that we're Jewish? 4d
  •   amycourts They're, like, 19 feet tall!! 3d

mommyshorts Just a little clip of Mazzy ice skating from our new video with @gymboree. Full video on the blog plus you can shop her look using code MOMMYSHORTS for $25 off any $100 purchase (link in profile). 5d
  •   my_greyeyes Aw, that smile at the end :) 5d
  •   pam_tenaglia They still make the double blades? 5d
  •   tesskayy Cute!!!! 5d
  •   peekaboopottysticker Great stuff! I say beginners shouldn't use the walker to learn to skate. The walker encourages kids lean forward, when the key to skating is staying upright and maintaining balance. Enjoy ice skating season. My boys LOOOOVE it! 4d
  •   mz.nayse She's soo adorable!! 4d
  •   spazzymazzy321 My name is Mazzy! Sry this totally random just crazy their is someone else out there with the name Mazzy 4d
  •   thebookofnina I have never known anyone called Mazzy before but the name is just so cute. 4d

mommyshorts Speaking of #momskillz, did I ever tell you I made this cake? Well, I didn't bake the actual cake. I bought a plain white cake and spent all night decorating it to look like a carousel for Harlow's birthday. I don't know what came over me except a friend bought me my first glue gun. I used a paper towel holder, straws, pom poms, wrapping paper, ribbon, plastic animals, m&m's, and a kabob skewer sticking up the middle to keep the top balanced. I felt like MacGyver! 40 more moms showing off their awesome #momskillz on the blog today. You can still enter to win an iPad Mini and a @mycharge HUB! Photo taken by @karilynphoto. 6d

mommyshorts Last night, after Harlow brushed her teeth, I told her to go to her room and pick out a book. Instead, she ran into the living room, grabbed my phone and started playing with it behind the couch. I said, "Harlow, what are you doing?" And I swear, this was her exact response, "Nothing. Don't worry about it." **gasp** I am ONTO YOU, @insta2yearold! 6d
  •   gardenofmyheart Hahaha! If you ask my almost 2 year old son to do anything he says "no, I'm busy!" 6d
  •   carynmwells My daughter turns into Greta Garbo: "I just want to be alone, Mummy. You go 'way." 6d
  •   anniehawker My 20 moz old just says, "bye!!" And waves when she wants to be left alone. / ouch!! 6d
  •   rodreen Lol! At Kohls last night and I told my boys let's go and my 3 yr old yells to me, "Mom! I just wanna buy 'sumting'" 6d
  •   emclemons317 I don't remember what mischief my 16 month old was up to the other day, but when daddy asked what happened, she pointed at the dog and said "Terry." I'm sure 'nothing' and 'don't worry about it' aren't far behind. 6d
  •   rockmom2 Our Berlin turned 2 at the end of September and she is nuts about the cell phones! Always trying to nab it! Must be the age and they are so quick to respond about it too! 6d
  •   begleyj This is awesome! Reminds me of the video of the girl trying to do her seat belt on her own and telling her dad to "worry about yourself". 5d
