mommyshorts Just dropped off Mazzy at camp in a witch costume for Halloween Day. It's about 90 degrees. Good luck out there, kid! 17h
  •   alcalc She is gorgeous! 17h
  •   kariotto22 Yep, I'm always the one with the kids who insist to be in full-on Wolverine costume at the park... 16h
  •   nydk21 My kid would be no mama too hot. Costume would last for 5 minutes 16h
  •   mickimacphotography I actually think this is better. Halloween where I'm from it is always freezing, so we had to wear layers under the costume. The same costume no one ever saw because we were also wearing bulky coats and hats. I'd much rather it be in the summer and then just use thin material for them. 16h
  •   staceysager7 Hope she's not "melting"!! 16h
  •   littlemissparty Haaaaaaaaaa! Luke wanted to wear his superman Jammie's and I had to change him before the bus came bc he was dripping with sweat! 16h
  •   caroline_s_ross She is bewitching! 14h
  •   kristrange @kprocmom your kids had Halloween day also, so random. 13h

mommyshorts Today is the first post in my #WednesdayEveningSeries, which documents a typical evening in the lives of 12 different families across the country with lifestyle photographer @raquellangworthy. We hope to show there is beauty to be found even in the chaos of making dinner, brushing teeth and putting resistant little ones to bed. The first Wednesday Evening begins at 5:30pm in San Francisco when Marcy gets home from work. Marcy talks openly about trying to get her husband more actively involved in the bedtime routine so she doesn't feel like the brunt of it always falls on her. Link in profile. Thank you @allstate for making this series possible! 2d

mommyshorts Mazzy drew Disgust (her favorite Inside Out character) from memory. She asked me to look it up on the computer afterward to make sure she got the outfit right. She totally did! There is no way I would remember that much detail. I was impressed! #5yearoldart 3d

mommyshorts Mike and I had plans to go out to dinner with another couple but their babysitter canceled. Instead of rescheduling, we decided to test out a new service called @Kitchensurfing where they send a personal chef with all the food and supplies to cook a restaurant quality meal at your apartment. It was as awesome as you might imagine having a personal chef would be and it was way less than we would have spent to go out to dinner. $25 per person for same-day weeknight service in NYC! And no babysitter needed! My full review plus a promo code and a giveaway for dinner for four on the blog today. Link in profile. 4d

mommyshorts And then Harlow walked into the kitchen wearing a baby bib and a bright red wig, asked for corn on the cob and we all laughed until we cried. 1w

mommyshorts This is what happens when you take your girls to see Inside Out and the fire alarm goes off in the middle. We sat out there eating popcorn, watching the fire trucks roll up until we were told everything was fine and we could go back in. I'm talking about my kids new obsession role playing the Inside Out characters (it's replaced Frozen) on the blog today. Harlow is Joy, Mazzy is Disgust, Mike is Anger and they make me be Sadness. Sadly. // new post 1w

mommyshorts I am really enjoying Mazzy's drawings lately. I'm pretty sure this is Harlow with her scooter being frightened by a witch. 1w
