Boca Mom Talk: Stellar Summer Camps for Every Kind of Kid

2017 Summer Camp Picks What I wouldn’t give to head off to summer camp this June. Kids don’t know how good they have it. Fun activities, color wars, campfires, s’mores! Camp is the best!

Boca Mom Talk: Ideal Summer Venues for a Baby Shower

An original baby shower concept is hard to come by these days. I honestly dread the idea of cheesy games and the inevitable ‘oohing and ahhing’ over pink or blue baby clothes. And why does it take so long to open presents? Sometimes it feels like if you’ve been to one baby shower, you’ve been […]

How to Give Out-of-Towners the Quintessential Florida Experience

Experiencing the Florida Everglades with family January to April in Boca Raton is what I have affectionately dubbed “houseguest season” for my family. My friends and in-laws travel down south in droves to escape the cold and enjoy Boca’s enviable winter weather. I’ve discovered that having houseguests kind of forces me to be a tourist […]

When Your Boca Kid Has a Better Spring Wardrobe Than You

Looking at photos I took of my daughter the other day, I can no longer deny she may be 3. But she is 3 going on 16. I’m equal parts floored and terrified of the clear vision I now have of her as a teenage girl. A teenage girl in Boca Raton, no less. Pray […]

Chocolate and Art Make for Sweet Weekends This February

What does art and chocolate have in common for local families in February? My family and I have a love/hate relationship with the Boca Raton season. The traffic, the manic calendar obligations, never being able to get a restaurant reservation… it can get annoying. On the plus side? The cooler weather and so many great […]

Review: Tucker Duke’s Perfect for Parents and Pee-Wees

My favorite kids menu in Boca Raton right now Believe it or not, I’ve found it’s shockingly difficult to find a local restaurant with a kids menu that’s as good as the food offered to the parent.
