How to Overcome Your Child’s Sensory Issues While at the Dentist

Taking a child with SPD (Sensory Processing Disorders) to the dentist is not easy. But it isn’t impossible either.

Bright lights, strange noises, vibrations and new people―visiting the dentist is nothing less than sensory overload. This is often a cause of concern for parents who wish to take their child to the dentist. So they usually opt out of the appointment for as long as they can.

But a visit to the dentist is often inevitable for most families. So it’s important for you to come prepared to the clinic rather than scared.

Top Things to Do with Kids in New York City | Summer 2019

I love to take my daughter to New York City. Modern Boca Dad and I lived in the Big Apple for almost 9 years and really enjoy heading back to the site of our 20’s to visit and reminisce. But now that we have a six year-old, our priorities as tourists have changed. These days, we’re more interested in having Tea with Eloise vs. Sleeping No More. And after a recent trip to the city, I have some awesome new recommendations for your next family visit. Here are Modern Boca Mom’s top things to do with kids in NYC this spring and summer!

Boca Orthodontics Treatment as an Adult: Tech Advancements, the Truth Behind Smile Direct Club & More

So I had braces twice in my life. Once as a kid and once as a single adult woman living in New York City. It was glamorous, let me tell you…NOT. You don’t need to know all the details, but I had Invisalign (or the generic equivalent) on my top teeth and metal/ceramic braces on the bottom. And in 2019, I’m now considered “old school” by Boca orthodontics treatment professionals. Go figure.

But that’s okay by me! I like learning and honestly, I still have one tooth that bugs me. But after speaking to Dr. Marc Goldenberg of Goldenberg Orthodontics, I’m apparently not alone in my quest for perfect teeth. More and more adults are looking to improve their smiles!

Summer Reading 2019 is Out of this Universe at the Boca Raton Public Library

As parents, we all know how important summer learning is. There will be no “summer slide” in my house! Luckily, Modern Boca Dad and Mayor, Scott Singer, agrees. He recently issued a proclamation declaring that June 3 through August 9 will be designated as Summer Reading 2019! This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories.” Residents are also welcome to participate in the over 100 programs and classes for all ages at the Boca Raton Public Library (BRPL). I can definitely appreciate some free summer fun!

Have a Rainforest Adventure at the South Florida Science Center

Exciting mysteries await visitors to the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium with their newest exhibit, Rainforest Adventure, opening May 4 and staying until September 4, 2019. We love visiting–this is a great museum with tons to do without being overwhelming!

In this NEW exhibit (for all ages), visitors are invited to experiment with physical and mental challenges as they descend through the four layers of rainforest. By the time visitors reach the forest floor, they are better equipped with an understanding of how humans impact this diverse yet fragile forest, and how they can make a difference.

Axe Throwing Near Boca Raton at Game of Axes

Overhand or tomahawk? Stark or Targaryen? Beer or wine? These are the terms that are commonplace at a sweet new venue dedicated to the art of axe throwing near Boca Raton. If you’re looking for a really fun group or family bonding activity to do this season, then this blog post is for you!

Since Modern Boca Dad and I are obsessed with Game of Thrones (like the rest of the world), I stumbled across Game of Axes in Boynton Beach on Instagram. I sent them a direct message with some questions and the owner got back to me personally about this fascinating sport that I knew very little about. He also invited me (and a group of 11 of my closest friends) for a friendly, Friday night axe-throwing competition complete with polite beverages and plenty of GOT-style photo opps. Spoiler alert: we had a BLAST! Continue reading Axe Throwing Near Boca Raton at Game of Axes

6th Birthday Party at Little Princess Spa Boca Raton

I don’t know about you, but to me there feels like such a huge gap between ages 5 and 6. When your child is 5, they’re reaching the end of the “baby stage.” But age 6 is the start of something else…my baby is now more than halfway to the double-digits. Wow. We decided to spring for a party at Little Princess Spa Boca Raton this year to celebrate (instead of me crying into my coffee on the big day). 

#dailybocaavery hasn’t had a traditional birthday party since she turned 4. We like to mix things up, alternating celebrations each year with a trip instead. Luckily, she’s agreed to that strategy so far!

But I have to say (and this post is totally NOT an ad, but it does contain affiliate links. If you decide to purchase party items through these links, Modern Boca Mom will get a little kickback. Thank you for supporting this blog!), that spa party experience was worth every penny. Bring on the hardworking Spa Fairies!!!

The City of Boca Raton Summer in the City 2019 series promises a lineup of great concerts, movies and events this year! All will be held at Downtown Boca’s Mizner Park Amphitheater!

Even though the weather is quite warm this time of year in Boca Raton, there’s something special and seasonally appropriate about grabbing your beach chairs or a big blanket and catching some great entertainment under the stars. I would also recommend a few paper fans.

For all City of Boca Raton free events, blankets and chairs are welcome. However for your convenience, chairs will also be available to rent for $5.00.

POUND Out Your Stress & Worries at Organic Movements Boca Raton

Like most Boca moms, I LOVE me some cute accessories. So, I consider it a major bonus if my workout class includes a cool prop to use. It just needs to distract me from the inevitable sweating and minor pain during a (much needed) exercise session. New Year’s resolutions are a bitch, aren’t they?

Beaches Resorts for Beginners | 10 Things to Know Before You Go to the Turks & Caicos

If you are lucky enough to reside in Boca Raton, Florida and have our town’s pristine beaches at your disposal year-round, it’s hard (at least in my opinion) to justify going on a “beach vacation” with your family. Nine times out of ten, I’d rather spend my holiday budget on a cruise, Disney World or a country residing on the other side of the Atlantic. But after my first visit to Beaches Turks and Caicos for the 2018 Social Media on the Sand Conference (SMOTS), call me a convert!

So You’re Moving to Boca Raton! Now What? Tips from Veteran Moms

So you’re moving to Boca Raton! Or perhaps you’ve re-located recently and are scratching your head, wondering what to do, where to go and who to see in our fair city. Well first off…WELCOME! We were in the same boat not too long ago even though this mom personally grew up in Boca Raton. (After 4 years of college and 9 years living in New York City, let’s just say my needs as a parent had majorly changed.) Before moving here a friend of mine suggested looking at new homes in spartanburg sc, however, we decided against it, plus moving to Boca was a challenge in itself.

Now with a happy and adjusted kindergartner, my veteran Boca mom friends and I have some major tips to share with families like you who are new to our area!

Cruising on the Disney Wonder with a Preschooler: Hit or Miss?

Is a Disney Cruise for preschoolers? That was the question I seriously asked myself as I accepted Disney’s wonderful invite to the 2017 Social Media Moms Celebration. I mean, CLEARLY Walt Disney World parks are perfect for preschoolers (as we took complete and utter advantage of our annual passes in 2016).

But a cruise? And without my mom for travel backup? I figured we’d take a chance and give it a shot anyways…
