About Me

Once upon a time I was an aspiring writer. So I went to a super-expensive university and got a fancy-schmancy degree. I also met a boy and fell in love and followed him to the big city. We got a sixth floor walk-up and I got a job in academic publishing. Writing was pushed aside for late nights at the office, happy hours, and planning a wedding.

Then we got the crazy idea to have kids and everything changed. I traded days at the office for diaper-changing, toddler-chasing, playdates, and playgrounds. Writing has been pushed aside for keeping up with two crazy boys and editing on the freelance. But I’m trying to fit it in again. I’m hoping that maybe writing and editing and wild little boys can co-exist.

This is my point of view; that of a mom, a New Yorker, and a girl who’s trying to fit it all in.

  1. Hi to the Mom at Mom’s-Eye View!
    Love your blog – your posts are so fun and down-to-earth, and reading them is such a nice break during my day! I’m from http://NYCTrip.com, and we’re always on the lookout for NYC bloggers who are blogging brilliantly, and luckily we found you! If you’re open to it, we’d love to have you review our Ground Zero and Statue of Liberty Walking Tour (http://www.nyctrip.com/Pages/Details.aspx?TourID=261) on your blog – it’s a great way to relax for a few hours and clear your mind. The tour leaves from Midtown, and if you’d like to take us up on this, we just need your name, and we’ll email two free tickets to you (or more if you’d like to take the whole fam!).

    There’s millions of people in NYC, but a remarkably few New Yorkers have actually seen those classic NYC sights that make New York, well, New York! This tour allows you to get inside the Statue of Liberty, which few actually get to do anymore, and bypass the ferry line, which we all know is atrocious. Tons of tourists flock to NYC every day and look for sightseeing tours like ours, so you’ll be helping them out by providing an honest Mom’s-eye viewpoint for them, and really just a peaceful few hours for you! We’re the largest independent tour operator focusing just on NYC – it’s one shimmering city, and we’re glad to be a part of it.

    Just let me know if you’re interested!

    Thanks,
    Alicia

  2. Dear Mom,

    I have been following you for quite a while now & I think you’re an inspiration for all moms that are juggling dreams & kids at the same time so I have decided to nominate you for a Liebster Award: http://anniemationfloe.wordpress.com/2013/11/11/liebster-award-honestly-transition-a-small-thank-you/
    Congratulations! Whether you choose to accept this award is of course entirely up to you, but I felt you were at the very least deserving of the nomination.
    Kind regards,
    Annie

    • Thank you so much. I’m so glad that my words actually mean something to someone. I’ve gotten this award a few times, but I think I’ll accept again just to answer your questions.
